Target’s Inner Circle

October 16, 2012

I’ve been absolutely dying to share with you some amazing news for some time. I mean, I literally feel my heart bursting out of my chest with excitement with this one. I’m the first to admit that this blog has afforded me many incredible experiences, friendships, (some cool swag!), the ability to find new brands and products, and much more. Truth: It’s also had it’s share of frustrations and time away from other moments, however it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done and I credit these — and something about to share — moments with lots of hard work. Still, I literally had a “whhhhaaaaa, this can’t be for real” moment early this summer when Target approached me…

…. to be part of their INNER CIRCLE! Yeah, they invited me, umm ME, this typical gal living in Florida who loves to write and share, this insane opportunity. {did you hear me faint on the floor this summer? This was why!}. I’m flattered, honored and down-right excited! They’ve ID’ed about 20 other ‘social influencers’ to give exclusive scoop and inside access to the Bullseye.

To kick things off, I’m in NYC today meeting with the rest of the Inner Circle (nerd moment: I’m kind of in love with saying I’m in the Inner Circle, haha) starting off with a trip to the Harlem Target, then heading to Target’s media day and lastly, a 50th Birthday Celebration. Woot, woot! Word has it that today I’m getting an exclusive look at Target’s insane/amazing holiday collection (remember when I shared this??), meet with execs, and get details on other upcoming plans. The birthday party means we’ll be mingling with media, execs and…. celebrity partners. Umm, if I meet Giada or Nate, I might just die right there. {man, you can’t take me anywhere, can you? ha!}.

Throughout the year I’ll be teaming up with Target for a variety of experiences involving beauty, home/office decor (ps: giveaway in store for you!), style, food + more. As many of you can tell from my posts the past two years, I’m head over heels for Target so I can’t be happier… and can’t wait to bring you all along for the ride! Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (@avggirlsguide) and elsewhere for sneak peaks of what’s happening.
