Fun Findings Friday #182

Oh hey, Friday! This week has been a weird one. I think I woke up every day thinking it was a different day. Anyone else? I’m pumped for the weekend ahead because my mom and I are going to see Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper in concert (#oldsoul here), I’m treating myself to a massage, AND I’m finally going to go check out the new Jimmy Fallon ride at Universal!

I hope you all have a great weekend! And be sure to check back here next week. I have a really exciting giveaway that you won’t want to miss (going live on Wednesday)!

New Target Collections

This week Target announced that it’ll be retiring two of its biggest brands – Merona and Mossimo, and bringing in 12+ new exclusive collections to its stores. This is bittersweet news to me because of course, I’m excited about new things, but also, I’m a huge fan of the Merona line! You can take a peek at some of their new offerings (including clothing and home decor) coming this fall here.

Amazon Prime Day

Next week Amazon’s big Prime Day sale is happening and I’m pretty excited about it! It’s essentially Amazon’s own version of Black Friday, but with claims that it’ll be ever bigger and better! Deals start at 9 p.m. on Monday (July 10) and will run through Tuesday (July 11), with different deals popping up every few minutes! We don’t know what the deals will be just yet, but they are running a few Amazon-specific promos for Prime members in advance of the sale!

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure

Is anyone else absolutely obsessed with Olaf (from Frozen) like I am? If so, I have some pretty exciting news for you. Disney’s releasing a new short, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure this fall! Plus, it’s set around the Christmas season, which makes it even better! It looks like Olaf will be on a mission to discover different Christmas traditions so he can help Ana and Elsa create a new one. Check out the trailer below!

  • Oh no! I had no idea that Target was getting rid of Merona! I love that line, though their new stuff looks cute! Also YASS, Prime Day! So excited. And Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. Lord, these are some good pickings! So excited!

    Cassie’s Big Adventure

    • I know I’m pretty bummed about it :( Hopefully the new stuff will be even better though! Did you pick up anything good for Prime Day?

  • The new collections at Target look amazing! I’m going to have to check it out!

    -Carine |

    • I hope you find some you like, Carine! It’s probably going to be pretty dangerous for us, haha.

  • Ooh I love the target stuff. Those swirly bowls look awesome. And yay I love Frozen.

    • We’re going to be (even more) in trouble with trips to Target with all of this new stuff coming out in a few months!

  • So I’ll be at D23 next week and I heard they’ll be previewing the Frozen short there… but I think it’s happening at the same time as another panel I’m interested in attending! So I don’t know if I’ll get to see it!

    • How exciting! I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. I’d love to go to D23!

  • I’m excited to see the new Target collections! Their stuff is seriously so cute! I’m not sure what I’m looking forward to with Prime Day – my husband keeps asking me, lol!

    • Me too! Did you snag anything good on Prime Day? I didn’t have anything specific I was looking out for either but was excited to buy things, haha.

  • That’s awesome news about Target (even though I’ll miss those brands) and I can’t wait for Prime Day (even though I’ll probably be spending too much money) haha! :) Also, Olaf is the cutest!

    • You and me both! Did you find anything good on Prime Day?

  • thesophiadiaries

    Omg i’m excited for the new olaf thing ahaha but I didn’t know target had another collection coming! nice!

  • I had purpfusefully not looked or thought about what Prime Day was going to be but now I’m thinking I will have to at least look! :-) Hope it’s a great weekend! I’ve missed stopping by.

    • Haha, that’s how I’ve been with the Nordstrom sale. Too many sales at once – SO dangerous :)

  • I’m so excited for Prime Day! Target’s new home collection looks so lux- I can’t wait to check it out

  • Yes, I read that about Target! I wish they would just keep their old brands AND add more. The best of both worlds. :)
    Olaf’s Frozen Adventure looks funny! Thanks for posting the trailer–hadn’t seen it yet!

    • Me too! I love the Merona line. From what I’ve seen of their new clothing lines, I’m not sold. Hopefully the good stuff just hasn’t been released yet, haha.

  • Omg the stand look so cool. Such a shame my country have no target.

    • Ah! I can’t imagine a world without Target, haha. Hopefully you can plan a trip overseas to done some Target shopping and bring your faves home!

  • Target & Amazon! Two of my downfalls! haha!!!

  • Jordyn Upchurch

    I’m actually really excited about the new collections launching at Target, i just hope they’re still budget friendly!

    The Southern Stylista

    • I hope so too! I’m sure there will be a combination of more affordable vs. a little pricier things – especially with so many different collections coming out!

  • Those little serving knives from Target are adorable! If the new line is even better than what it’s replacing, my poor bank account is in trouble. I am so excited about Prime Day!

    XO, SS || Seersucker Sass

    • Me too, girl! Between Amazon and Target it’s time to say goodbye to all of the money, haha.

  • I saw about Target retiring Merona and I was also kind of upset. But after seeing how much new stuff they’ll be bringing in I felt a lot better haha. And so excited for Prime Day! I snagged so many awesome deals last year, so I can’t wait to see how this year is going to go!

    • Same! I’m hoping one of the collections will be similar though! Did you scoop up anything good on Prime Day?

      • I did actually. I actually wrote a post about it haha! I picked up a lot of tech items this year!

  • Anna Hubbard

    I’m really excited to see the new Target product!

    • Me too! Are you more excited for the home or clothing lines?

  • I’m a huge fan of target and always find myself scrolling through their newest products! I recently heard that they are getting rid of a ton of old brands and introducing a bunch of new ones!

    • Same! Anything in particular you’re excited for (clothes/home decor)?

  • Kaitlyn Fickle Killebrew

    All three of these speak to my heart! Especially the new target collection though! I always need more stuff!

    • So glad to hear it :) And that’s exactly how I feel, haha. I don’t even want to think about all of the things I brought home from Target that I certainly didn’t go in for :)

  • LOVE all things target!

  • I am so excited for Amazon Prime day!!!!! Also, I love that blue desk from Target xx

    • Yaaaas! Did you get anything good from the Prime Day sale?

  • I didn’t know that news about Target! I love those brands too!

    • I know me too :( Hopefully their new stuff is even better!

  • Target is bringing in a ton of new brands, since they are getting rid of so many oldies. Love your picks!

    Beauty With Lily

    • Thanks, Lily! I’m excited for the new collections but sad to see some of my old faves go!

  • I’m so excited for the new Target brands!! The fitness one looks awesome

    • I can’t wait to see what they come out with either! Especially what they’re replacing Merona with – because I love Merona!

  • mckenna bleu

    I love that bar cart! I found my bar cart at target!

    • I need to get one! Definitely going to keep my eye out on my next Target run!

  • Can’t wait for Prime Day! And all the new Target stuff! What are you gonna shop for for Prime Day??

    • Me too! I bought way too many things for Prime Day but my fave were the gift cards I snagged for a little bit of a discount! Did you get anything good?

  • Omg all that Target stuff is so cute! I need to go check out their new things!

    • I can’t wait to see the rest of their collections!

  • The new Target stuff looks so adorable – I wish they were still in Canada!!

    • I can’t wait to see all of the new collections they’re rolling out! I had no idea they closed in Canada!

  • rachel jenkins

    Love the amazon prime day!!!!! Got so many goodies

    • Yay! I scooped up quite a bit too :) Are you jumping in on the Nordstrom sale too?

  • Sophie

    This week was like Christmas with all the Amazon packages I received!

    • Haha, me too! Christmas in July.. it’s a real thing!

  • WAIT, WHAT?! No more Merona and Mossimo?! As long as they don’t kill Threshold I am good. Excited to see their new stuff!

    xx katie // a touch of teal

    • I know :( I haven’t heard anything about Threshold but I’m hoping they keep it! They can’t get rid of all of their lines at once – that’d be terrible! I am excited to see the new stuff too though!

  • I was so surprised to hear about Target changing things up, but I’m excited to see their new collections! I feel like my visits to Target are going to become even more expensive with all the new things I’m going to want!

    The Blush Blonde

    • Same! Although I can’t imagine how they can get more expensive than they already are, haha!
