Target Buys Under $50 // Shopping on a Au Pair Budget

As most of you know, I am an Au Pair (Au Poor) and I am all about looking/feeling good on a budget.

So we don't get paid millions, but that is no excuse for not being able to look/feel good. I decided to go to Target and see what goodies I could get under $50 (including tax). Let me not bore you to death any longer because I am sure you are dying to see what I got.

 Wireless Headphones:

I am a big lover for headphones but they keep on breaking. So I am at that point where I don't want to spend a lot on headphones/earphones if they keep on breaking. So I got these awesome wireless headphones for only $10. If that is not a bargain, then I don't know what is...

Watch the time:

Watches are my go-to accessories and once again I have managed to break them or they just stopped working... But no fear when Target is near. I found this lovely watch on sale at Target for $7.48. And I am totally in love with it. It goes with everything and now I don't have an excuse for being late as everyone knows that I bought a watch.

Earrings for days:

Diamonds are indeed my best friend, but for now I will settle for sterling silver earrings. I have sensitive ears, I look for earrings that will not hurt my ears. I did try the earrings and I can only where it for a few hours max. So that was kind of a bummer. These earrings cost me $14.99.

Line those lips:

If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I love the brow gel from essence, but this time I decided to try their lip liners. The liner was $1.99 and I don't think it was bad at all. Essence is quite a nice go-to drugstore brand so I didn't mind spending that.

All together I spent $37.13 , which I think is very reasonable for what I was able to buy.
