My Target Style

  Since partnering with Target, I’ve fallen in love with their swimwear. You may have seen my swimsuit that I posted last month, and I'm still rocking it all the time!

  Although this swimsuit is everything to me, I still needed something to sport on my way to the pool or the beach. So I headed back to Target in search of a cover-up, and picked up this black crochet cover-up dress. I think it’s the perfect piece to wear this summer.

  Since taking the #NOFOMO (no fear of missing out) pledge, I wanted to have a cover-up that would still let me show off my body, but I went for a style that was a bit girlier than what I would normally aim for. I’m usually really edgy with my style, and I rarely wear anything that makes me look or feel frilly. This was very much out of my comfort zone, but I really wanted to challenge myself to try something different for the new season.

  What I love the most about this cover-up, though, is its versatility! I can wear it as a top or a dress if I wanted, and it would still look just as fabulous! Since I decided to step outside of my comfort zone, I figured that I might as well take it all the way! This became my outfit for the day. I vowed to be shameless and have #NOFOMO by being comfortable in my skin, so I wore this look while I was at SXSW. It was perfect because I ended up stopping by the pool later in the day anyway.

  Target has cover-ups and accessories that will fit any style! I’m sure you will find something that you’ll fall in love with. And, if you order online, you can get free shipping and free returns, so you don’t need to worry about whether your swimwear or accessories won’t fit or go well with your aesthetic. Target Style makes it easy to have the look you want this summer! Make sure you take the challenge and visit target.com to grab your swimsuit. Then post them on social media using the hashtags….

#NOFOMO WITH MY TARGET STYLE BATHING SUITS!

  So spring is creeping up on us and spring break is just a few weeks away! Even though I don’t live near a beach, I’m already prepping for those spring and summer nights that I plan on spending by the pool with my friends over the next few months. I’m usually that girl with a regular black bikini, because it’s simple and to the point. But this year I wanted to switch it up. I didn’t want to be the only one without a cute and colorful swimsuit. I ran over to Target and grabbed some cute swimwear and, based on how cute these bikinis look, I’m sure to have #NOFOMO (no fear of missing out)!

LOOK #1

  This look is hands down my favorite. I did not expect to find a swimsuit that fits my aesthetic so perfectly! I’m honestly just in love. We could stop here, but I guess I’ll go on and show you the other ones.

LOOK #2

This is the swimsuit my friends will probably try to borrow. I never wear anything this girly, so I was surprised that I loved it this much! It’s definitely the most comfortable out of all of them, and the best for my girls who are a little more flat-chested like me.

LOOK #3

This look is the most adventurous for me. I’ve admired girls who could pull off these color- blocked swimsuits, and now I’m in the club with them! This bathing suit is super fun and I definitely will have #NOFOMO now when I see someone else rocking one.

 Now, as you can see, Target has so many great options to choose from! They definitely have something for everyone, and if you order online you can get free shipping and free returns. So no worries if the swimsuit doesn’t fit right, or if you just don’t like that style on you. Target Style makes it easy to have the look you want this summer! Make sure you take the challenge and visit target.com to grab your swimsuit. Then post them on social media using the hashtag

WHAT IS IT REALLY LIKE BEING A UBER PARTNER?

Doni BrownComment

Have you ever wondered what it's like to drive for Uber? Yeah, well me too! I've always had a lot of questions because you never know who's going to hop in your car. So, instead of sitting around wondering, I connected with Uber Partner, Anna aka Mama Uber, to learn what it's really like. 

Mama Uber aka Anna

Mama Uber aka Anna

  Anna is a lovely Italian women that definitely loves her career as an Uber partner. As soon as I started asking questions, she immediately expressed how much she loves the job. For her, this is a ministry. On a day to day basis, she meets so many young men and women that she ultimately ends up being a blessing to. She doesn't just transport them from one location to the next. Every time someone requests her she makes sure they're taken care of. A lot of her most frequent riders are from a local college, so she often has situations where she's helping young girls either arrive home safely, or minimizing their stress in some way. There are times when her passengers are rowdy, but she finds that trying to make them laugh is the best route to go when dealing with situations like that. It's all about keeping things light hearted. She handles being an Uber partner so well, but she wasn't always a partner. 

  Fifteen years ago she was living in San Diego, working as a contractor and she loved it! Years later she ended up moving to Dallas and 2 years ago she decided to sign up with Uber. Being that she has to help support her daughter and her granddaughter, she loves the flexibility of the position. She's able to watch her granddaughter if needed, without having to request off because she makes her own hours. 

  When she first started, the referral program really helped her get on her feet. When someone signed up because of her and completed 25 trips, she got a $500 reward!!! Isn't that amazing! She also gets paid weekly based on her earnings, which sounds great to me!  This is just one of the many reasons she loves Uber and is proud to work for them

 The biggest takeaway from this whole meeting with Anna was that she was more than just a driver. There were countless stories where she's helped people in rough situations and really blessed them. She's touching lives daily. It's truly beautiful to hear how passionate she is about her passengers, whether they're a celebrity or they're just a college student. She feels the same about them all.

 Honestly, after I finished talking with Mama Uber, she made me want to sign up to be a partner myself! I think this is honestly a great option for so many. If you're interested in signing up to become a partner yourself, head on over to Uber to get started! 

Also, tell me in the comments and on twitter what your most memorable Uber ride was.
