Affordable Graphic Tees by Target || Everyday Style on a Budget

One item I have been loving lately is the graphic tee. However, it seems like all of the trending brands want $60+ per shirt… Cue my brain going “I’m sorry, you want how much for a T SHIRT?!” No can do. So began the search. The search for affordable graphic tees/tanks. And after looking for months, I found the answer. Right in front of my gosh darn face. Target…hellooo!

I should have known. When has Target ever let me down? Despite all of the adorable brands out there, I will never not go back to Target. And do you know the number one thing I love to shop for there? Basics. Does it get more basic than a graphic tee? *PALM. TO. FACE.*

In order to maximize my options, I don’t mess around in store. I go straight to the online mothership. And boy did I hit the jackpot!

Now, I just got a few items… I have to draw the line somewhere. But there were SO many lovely designs. Between shopping for my everyday casual look and then obviously my weekly yoga class it was seriously so hard to decide. But this is what I chose, and I’m sticking to it! Which one(s) will you buy?! Comment below!

Real Oil’s Essential Oil Beauty Kit

Now this product is one I have been wanting to share with y’all for a while! But as we all know, sometimes life gets ahead of us. Nonetheless, I’m doing it now…and I am just as ecstatic as ever, let me tell you!

The company is called Real Oil and my obsession is their Real Beauty Kit. This kit just fell into my lap (or my e-mail inbox) exactly when I needed it most. Which is also when my skin decided instead of being oily (like it always has been) it wants to dry out. Like, a lot. And it wants to peel and itch too. Ugh, the misery.

After searching high and low, online and in store, everywhere you could imagine, Real Oil found me. And I am thanking the heavens because I don’t know what I would have done without it! So for starters, here’s a quick “need-to-know” about this product:

  • It comes in three different “ready-to-apply” essential oil blends to give you brilliant, resilient, and youthful skin
  • Between the three blends, you have the ability to reduce the appearance of scars, blemishes and lines; to tone, tighten and nourish your skin; and to soothe irritation or sensitivity
  • The essential oils are 100% pure and of therapeutic quality
  • Each oil in this collection comes pre-diluted at a 3% dilution (the proper amount for adult daily use) in a base of Jojoba and Rosehip oil, which are nutrient dense and moisturizing for the skin

And here is what I LOVE based on my personal trial and experience:

  • With the roll-on packaging, application is simple and quick
  • THE SCENTS are so soothing – I typically apply before bed and I am out like a light
  • When I wake up my skin feels nourished and hydrated and truly has a youthful, healthy glow about it
  • You can wear it under makeup!!! Not recommended under a very finished look, but I will apply it under my everyday coverage for a little extra skin lovin’

Now, let’s get down to the nitty gritty… I’m talkin’ what you need to do to see results! Or at least, I’ll tell you what I did that I felt made all the difference. It’s really pretty simple!

  • Before you apply, wash your face! Get rid of all of that dirt and make up and give this oil it’s best chance at success!
  • Roll it on! This packaging was created for a reason… Not only are you giving your face it’s own little massage, but you are simplifying the application process and saving yourself time! Lord knows we all need more of that.
  • Next, rub it in. Very gently, though! Just make sure the oil extends to all areas of your face.
  • Finally, pat pat pat! This is my favorite part. As you slowly press the oils into your skin I swear you can feel it drinking it up. The hydration is unreal, and your face will sigh as it thanks you.

In case you are interested, I’ve provided a breakdown of all of the ingredients in each of the blends. As we’ve all heard, less is more. And Real Oil provides the ultimate, natural skincare by applying this concept across the board.

  • Brilliant Skin | For daily use and general skincare | Frankincense, Helichrysum, Geranium in Jojoba and Rosehip
  • Resilient Skin | For addressing problem areas and blemishes | Helichrysum, Lavender, Cypress, Lemongrass, Geranium, Rosemary, Camphore in Jojoba and Rosehip
  • Youthful Skin | For tightening and toning the skin | Lavender, Myrrh, Patchouli, Frankincense in Jojoba and Rosehip

The results I have seen in my few months of trial guarantee that I will be a long-term customer. The smoothness and radiance of my skin is unbelievable, but the increase in evenness is what will keep me coming back. Go on…explore the possibilities -> Real Oil // Real Beauty Kit
