I can’t even begin to express to you my obsession with TJ Maxx. It started as a child, I have always had an eye for unique finds, and there is no better to explore. Carrying a selection of all my favorite things fashion, baking accessories, and home decor, it will always be my fave one-stop shop. With the exception of the pastel mani, all photos were finds from a recent trip this week.
