When I get an evening to myself I like to head to Target to check out what’s new in the home decor section (it’s my fave) and of course I have to check out all those clearance racks. I also like to pick up a magazine or two so I can kick back when I get home and enjoy a little “Me Time.”
Reading is my all-time favorite “Me Time” activity. I love to keep a magazine in my purse so when I have a little down time like while I’m waiting to pick up my daughter from work or waiting for my son at swimming I have something to keep me entertained. I like magazines for my on-the-go reading because you can start and stop anywhere in the magazine. It’s so easy to pick up reading where you left off.
I don’t only read magazines on-the-go. My all time favorite way to read a magazine is by making myself a yummy smoothie, kicking me feet up and just taking it easy at home. Our lives are so busy it’s important to have some time where you can just relax and do something that makes you happy. It’s okay to ignore the dishes once in awhile!
My go-to magazine for relaxing is PEOPLE® magazine, it’s so much fun to catch up on celebrity and popular culture news. In the most recent issue I got to catch up on the latest with Will and Kate, check out fashion from the MTV movie awards, get a peek at the latest movies that are coming out, and I even found a recipe for Rosemary Smashed Potatoes I am dying to try. I love rosemary!
Check out InStyle® magazine. I love that this magazine is THICK, it makes me feel like I’m getting so much more for my money. It kind of reminds me of when I was a kid and we would go on road trips and we could pick out one treat for the trip. I would always choose SweetTarts because they would last forever. InStyle® magazine would totally be my road trip magazine, it would last me forever. This issue is filled with the best beauty buys of 2016. I’ve already made my list of beauty products I want to try thanks to the recommendations in the magazine.
While kicking me feet up I also checked out StyleWatch® magazine. This is actually my first time reading this magazine and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. It is filled with fashions that the average person can actually afford! Not only are they affordable so many of them are cute. I found tons of items I would love to add to my spring wardrobe. I recommend giving this one a read, it’s filled with inspiring style ideas for every body and every budget.
Head to Target and pick up a couple of these magazines and and save $2 when you buy any 2 of the following titles:
- PEOPLE® – $4.99
- StyleWatch® – $4.99
- InStyle® – $4.99
Once you’ve got your magazines head home and kick your feet up and enjoy some relaxing and inspiring “Me Time” for yourself. You can even make and enjoy this Frosted Strawberry Lemonade smoothie while you read your magazines too.
Frosted Strawberry Lemonade
Combine the following in a blender and mix until smooth:
- 2 cups Lemonade
- 1 cup Ice
- 1 cup Frozen Strawberries

I’d love to hear how you like to spend your free time, what is your favorite “Me Time” activity?
