Target City Style: San Francisco!

Check out some of our favorite spring style inspirations from the beautiful City by the Bay! #TargetCityStyle #TargetStyle #spon

Fresh & Fabulous Spring Style With Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash!

Spring style - it's all about what's fresh and new and makes you feel fabulous. After being cooped up and covered up all winter long fashionistas everywhere are ready to bare a bit of skin and debut their spring style choices.  From flirty skirts and breezy blouses to the classic go-to of skinny jeans and a comfy tee, styles are definitely fresh and fabulous this spring.

Inspiration from nature filled the runways for Spring 2014, with lush floral prints and glorious shades of emerald fresh from the garden. Incorporate this trend into your spring style with an all-over-floral or leafy print dress or skirt.

Want to update your wardrobe without  breaking the budget? Accessories are a great way to breathe new life into your every day basics.  Your classic jeans and top will look fresh and new with the addition of a vibrant emerald green handbag.

My personal favorite way to kick off spring style is with a great pair of sandals.  (What girl doesn't love new shoes, right?)   From wedge espadrilles and fun flip-flops to sexy skyscrapers and embellished strappies, brightly colored sandals add the perfect finishing touch yo any spring ensemble.

No matter your spring style, there is one thing we all agree on: we want the skin we bare to be silky smooth and fresh smelling!  Which I why I am thrilled with Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash.  The scent is crisp and fresh, infused with lush gardenia and white tea essence, and the rich lather hydrates as it cleanses, leaving my skin feeling smooth and delicately scented.  And the gorgeous emerald color?  Right on trend for Spring 2014!   

The Caress® Fresh collection wraps your skin in vibrant scents and hydrating lather, leaving it revitalized and delicately scented. Try the new Caress® Fresh Collection and revitalize your skin like never before.

Springtime is all about renewal and revitalization.  While the earth renews itself with a bounty of lush greenery and fragrant flowers, we winter-weary women like to renew ourselves in much the same way! Perhaps we treat ourselves to a relaxing mani/pedi, pamper ourselves with luxurious spa treatments or indulge in some much needed retail therapy. Whatever our choice of indulgence, after the winter we have had we have definitely earned it!

This spring I am all about emerald - it is the signature color of the season.  From fabulous footwear and exquisite accessories to vibrant dresses and separates, emerald is rocking the runways this season.  Make the most of this fresh and fabulous fashion trend with a bold figure flattering dress or take a more subtle approach and add a pop of spring color with accessories.  The freshness of emerald is bound to get your creative juices flowing this spring!

And speaking of emerald, Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash is my go-to source this spring for awakening my senses and treating my skin to much needed hydration.  This crisp, sparkling scent is infused with lush gardenia and white tea essence to awaken your senses and revitalize your skin, leaving it delicately scented and beautifully fresh.  One of the things I love most about Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash is that a small amount goes a long way, creating a very rich lather that is lightly scented and very refreshing.  It is very gentle, leaving my skin feeling smooth and silky, and is wonderful for shaving - especially on my super sensitive skin.


The Caress® Fresh collection wraps your skin in vibrant scents and hydrating lather, leaving it revitalized and delicately scented. Try the new Caress® Fresh Collection and revitalize your skin like never before.

Get the Look: Jessica Alba at the MTV Movie Awards

Check out how to get the hairstyle that celebrity hairstylist Davy Newkirk created for Jessica Alba at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

INSPIRATION: Playful, Modern Hollywood Glam

GET THE LOOK: Celebrity hairstylist Davey Newkirk gave actress Jessica Alba glossy, simple loose waves for the 2014 MTV Movie awards red carpet.

In order to recreate this look, follow these steps from Newkirk using products from John Frieda:

  •  Newkirk started by applying John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray all over Jessica’s wet hair.
  •  Then he blew out her hair using a large round brush to give her tons of volume and a lot of shine.
  •  After blow drying, Newkirk parted her hair into 2 inch sections (starting from the nape and working up).
  • Then he curled the hair with a large 1 ½ inch curling iron. He made sure to secure each section with a duckbill clip and allowed each curl to set.
  •  Once curls were set, he removed the hair clips and with a flat brush, gently brushed out each curl.
  •  Newkirk placed a small amount of John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème and smoothed it through Jessica’s hair to achieve a perfectly smooth look.
  •  After, with a large comb, he parted the hair and smoothed it down with a touch of John Frieda Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Gel.
  • Finally he manipulated Jessica’s curls with his finger and a brush. To finish and lock the style he sprayed John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.

Kate Upton + David Kirsch

From Hollywood films to Sports Illustrated covers, Kate Upton shows off her covetable figure in every shot. But how does the model of the moment get her enviable body? She turns to fitness and wellness expert David Kirsch who keeps her looking her best. Along with managing her training, David Kirsch also ensures that everything she puts in her body helps toward her fitness goals—that’s where his Thermo Bubbles and KirschbarsTMcome in. Kate Upton’s spring training essentials, the fat-melting supplements and appetite-curbing protein bars work from the inside out to help shape one of America’s most famous bodies.

The 100% natural KirschbarTM is delicious and contains only 100 calories while providing 8 grams of casein and egg white protein. Unlike conventional protein bars that have as much sugar as candy bars, the KirschbarTM keeps snacking smart with very little sugar and no artificial additives. And casein protein digests slowly, keeping you full for longer than other protein bars can. Kate also pairs her diet with David Kirsch Thermo Bubbles—a unique supplement that fizzes up in your water to create a tasty, pink lemonade-flavored drink. The exclusive David Kirsch Weight Management blend of Guarana, White Tea, Green Tea, L-arginine, and Chromium naturally boosts metabolism and energy, getting your body to burn calories and fat at a faster rate.
