Hi there I’m addicted to Home Goods and that sort of extends to TJ Maxx too kind of?! You don’t understand how much I miss Home Goods. This is a source of many, many text conversations with my bestie Sam. We’re all over here holding our breath waiting for it to re-open but I have a feeling I’ll be too paranoid to actually go when it does.
I miss Home Goods more than I miss Nordstrom, more than I miss Sephora, more than I miss Target (I’ve been to Target but it’s a horrifying experience where I run around the store trying to dodge people because I’m convinced sharing any open space with anyone is going to mean I’ll catch something! Which means Target runs are sadly lacking over here and I miss it so much!). Lucky enough, the first place I hit at Target is the Hearth & Hand section and like, no one is ever there showing Joanna any love but me. I dunno why I head there first! I think I’m convinced Joanna personally comes into my Target on the daily to re-arrange the display and put out new stuff for me to throw my monies at. I am so not that person that’s paranoid or anxious but COVID has unlocked a paranoia level I’ve never experienced before in my life. I’m throwing it out there to the people who face anxiety and paranoia on the daily you’re my hero because I had no idea what you were dealing with until COVID-19 decided to pop into my life like a bad friend. I did go to Trader Joe’s last week and I was so excited how it was all handled even though I had to wait about 30 minutes to get in. Hell, I’ll wait as long as they keep the store half full and the carts sanitized. A girl needs her chocolate gnocchi, Cookie Butter, and Organic Riced Cauliflower. (P.S. I’m still trying to understand the Savory Banana & Nuts Trek Mix hype!).
I’m also sort of jealous of all you guys out there shopping. Not a lot has opened here yet. I ran across an account on Insta today that showed the Pat Mcgrath’s Mothership VI: Midnight Sun on sale at TJ Maxx for $89.99. I legit think my head exploded. You know TJ, sometimes there are some sick finds to be had. I mentioned a few weeks ago how much the luxury beauty brand world might be changing due to the pandemic but I really didn’t think it was going to go this far. If you told me I was going to walk into TJ and find Pat Mcgrath Eyeshadow Palettes I would call you a liar.
But here we are…..!
Does Pat Mcgrath popping up at TJ Maxx devalue the brand’s image?
Are you excited to see if you can score it at your local TJ Maxx?
