Review: Merona Tailored Fit Poplin shirt

This shirt popped up a while back in Target stores, and it wasn’t until a month or so ago that I decided to purchase one. I’m not picky about the little details usually if my clothes fit exceptionally well, but this is one shirt that made me think otherwise.

Don’t get me wrong, these poplin shirts are like a better fitting Merona Ultimate Dress shirt. But there are downsides. Continue Reading →

The Odin line at Target is on clearance

Most of the Odin line at Target is being put on clearance. Like with most clearance items at Target, the first discount is 30% off. This means that the sport jacket is now close to $70, the hooded parka is around $50, and the sweaters are down to $25. The 30% off, however, is only in store. The Target website also has a 20% off sale going on right now for the entire men’s clothing department, so the Odin pieces are all discounted online a little less.

The only items that are not on clearance are the shoes, the scarf, the hat, and the bag. If you want to pick up any of the Odin pieces before they’re gone, I’d head over to Target soon.

Personally, I recommend going for the flecked sweater, the henley, and the hooded parka.

Motivational pic of the week #39 & #40: How I met your Mother

How I met your Mother is a show full of quotable, motivational lines that are worth taking to heart. Even if you don’t like the show, the quotes are worth reading. Tonight, I’m going to stick with the two polar opposites in the show: Ted and Barney.

Ted is the typical romantic type – he is hopeful that every new woman he meets could be the one. Because of this positive attitude, many of Ted’s lines are remarkably motivational:

Ted quote

Remember, your life could change any second.

Barney Stinson, on the other hand, tends to be very sure of himself and ends up with lines like this:

Barney quote

Just a -little- confident.

While on complete opposite ends of the spectrum of motivation, the characters Ted and Barney both tend to be positive and hopeful of the future. Ted is hopeful he will meet “the one,” and Barney is hopeful he will get into the pants of the attractive woman at the bar.
