TOMS + Target

'Tis the season for giving and giving back. Not only is it that time of year to shower your loved ones with gifts, but it's always a great way to be socially responsible and do our part in helping the community. This season, Target has partnered with TOMS to design a limited edition holiday gift collection. And the best part? The collection holds true to TOMS' mission of giving back to the community by following their "one-for-one" model. With each gift purchased from TOMS + Target collection, a gift will be made to a person in need.

The collection features a wide array of products and there's something for everyone. From adorable children's clothing, casual menswear, cozy sweaters and cold weather accessories for the ladies to home decor and jewelry... it really is your one-stop-shop for gift-giving and makes it absolutely effortless to give back.

TOMS for Target: One-for-One. For All. Starting November 16th, for every Target+TOMS limited edition gift you buy, we're (Target) giving shoes, a blank or meals to those in need. #TOMSForTarget

One of the things on my bucket list is to visit all 50 states before age 50. Some states are easily achievable, while others, like Montana, more obscure with no real desire to every step foot in. Montana was added to the road trip itinerary because of Yellowstone National Park. We flew from Seattle to Bozeman, MT and drove our way down to West Yellowstone. Out of all of the driving portions of the entire trip, MT was the most visually stimulating. What could've been a 2 hour drive ended up taking closer to 5 hours because of all the stops we made along the way... passing through the countryside, expansive forests, creeks, rivers & lakes, and ending the day with a stunning sunset.

I don't always wear pink, but when I do, it has to be super bright and obnoxious, in the best way possible.

A quick stop in Seattle - arrived around 4pm and flew out the next morning at 10am. Two ice cream shops (Bluebird Microcreamery & Brewery and Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream), Pike Market Place + the infamous bubble gum wall, an elevator ride up to the Space Needle, dinner at Westward and turning a year older... all took place during the few hours that we were there.

1. First signs of fall foliage | 2-3. Salted caramel and chocolate ice cream at Bluebird Microcreamery | 4-7. Pike Place Market | 8-11. Bubble gum galore - amazing and gross at the same time | 12-14. View of Seattle via the Space Needle | 15. View of the Space Needle via Kerry Park | 16-18. Difficult decisions being made at Molly Moon's
