Think Warm Thoughts

9:48 PM

For those of you who live in the United States, this week has been one of the coldest in years. Many cities in the East Coast are dropping to single digits, while the Mid West is well below 0 °F. To give you some hope. I want to remind you that Spring is only 2 months away. And to melt away the icicles you got from walking outside, I’ll share some hot details about my recent cruise trip to the Caribbean Islands and a very exciting announcement.


My trip started the day after Thanksgiving - that's right, I was busy packing and traveling while everyone was out shopping. It turned out to be the best decision I made this holiday season, because I got to avoid the cold and the crazy Black Friday!

I fell in love with cruising ever since my first sail. This trip was my second cruise to the Caribbean Islands in two years and the second cruise this year. Growing up and still living fairly close to the coast, I enjoy simply just staring at the sparkling endless ocean for hours.

 
The underwater picture above was taken by my smartphone with a waterproof smartphone case.

I try to pack at least one Lilly Pulitzer dress every time I go on vacation. The dress I wore has my favorite Lilly print in their 2014 collection, Watch Out. I love how Lilly prints always remind me of water, and remind me of summer.

That leads me to the exciting news announced by Target this week - the company is introducing Lilly Pulitzer for Target starting April 19! Hundreds of apparels, accessories and home goods will be available in Target stores and and their website. Historically, Lilly Pulitzer has only a small number of stores in high-end malls or sold in certain boutique stores. The partnership will make the brand more easily accessible to a greater demographic and will certainly help increase brand awareness.
