Happy September! Now that Labor Day has passed and the beach tourists have started heading home, it’s starting to hit me that the summer is almost over! Since the fall season is quickly approaching, I decided to round up some of my favorite affordable Target fall decor pieces! I’ve either bought or “wishlisted” these items so I hope you love them too.
Download the Target app and favorite the ones you have your eye on so you have a shopping list the next time you head into their store. I recommend buying them quickly as items tend to sell out fast!
Let me know which of my favorite Target fall decor items earn a place in your home this fall! This post is in no way sponsored and all thoughts/opinions are my own 😊
Which items are on your wishlist?! Any good items I missed? Let me know in the comments section or send me a message on my contact page. For more design inspo, make sure to follow along on Instagram, Like to Know It, and Pinterest. Happy decorating!
How adorable are these peanut butter cup spider cookies!? 🕷🥜 After browsing Pinterest and seeing so many cute Halloween dessert ideas, I became inspired to recreate one using only all-natural & vegan-friendly ingredients. Although I would not call these “healthy”, they do contain clean ingredients you can actually understand/pronounce! I believe if you’re going to treat yourself to sweets, you should still be conscientious of what’s in them.
Instead of using regular mini Reeses, I swapped them for mini organic Justin’s peanut butter cups! The Justin’s team was kind enough to send me over a few peanut butter cups when I told them I was writing this post so thank you Justin’s!
Below is my favorite vegan peanut butter cookie recipe. It is extremely simple and takes only 20 minutes to make! Right after the recipe I’ve included instructions on how to make the spider cookies! Enjoy! 🕷
Recipe: All-Natural / Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies 🥜
Candy Eyes (available at Walmart, Target, Michael’s, AC Moore, and some grocery stores)
Piping bag (can also use a regular ziplock bag with corner snipped)
Optional: spider-web doilies 🕸 (available online at Walmart, I saw them in both Target & AC Moore)
Optional: orange napkins
Using a small amount of frosting, stick a Justin’s peanut butter cup face down in the center of a cookie.
Add frosting to a piping bag and pipe 8 spider legs on top of the cookie. If you do not have a piping bag, add frosting to a ziplock bag and snip off a tiny piece of one of the bag’s corners to use to pipe the legs.
Attach the eyes using a small dot of frosting.
Place in the fridge to cool.
Optional: Lay a spider web doily over an orange napkin to display your cookies on!
Justin’s Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
If you read last’s years Halloween post, you know I am a die-hard Justin’s peanut butter cup fan (I eat way more of these than I care to admit). If you are a chocolate-loving fan of Justin’s nut butters, I guarantee you will LOVE these! 🍫
Why I Love Them:
The chocolate is super rich and the perfect compliment to Justin’s smooth peanut butter.
They are 100% natural and USDA certified organic (no hidden scary ingredients).
The palm oil found in Justin’s is certified sustainable meaning it does not lead to deforestation and habitat loss!
The dark chocolate cups are vegan! (please note: they are manufactured on the same equipment as the milk chocolate cups but the equipment is thoroughly cleaned in between batches to prevent cross-contamination)
I hope you try this recipe and love it as much as I do! Have a Happy Halloween!

This product is a staple in my skincare routine. It has been a lifesaver in preventing puffiness/dark circles under my eyes. I even make my boyfriend use it and he loves it. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!
If you have never tried highlighter sheets you are in for a treat. I keep this product in my purse and use it midway through the day when my skin needs a little pick-me-up. The sheets can be used on both the face and body and compliment all skin tones. To use, remove one sheet and lightly press on desired areas of face/body. So easy and so pretty!
I have been wanting to try an adult coloring book so when I saw this I had to buy it. Anyone else mesmerized by Alice in Wonderland? A great stress reliever or rainy day activity. The floral pages are my favorite 😉
This tiny bottle is pricey but worth every penny. Spray in your hair after you shower and your knots will detangle with little effort. The keratin-infused formula helps strengthen hair while preventing breakage and frizz. I know numerous people who use this product and say it drastically improved their hair’s quality. I HIGHLY recommend it! (FYI: it’s not as clean of a formula as the rest of my beauty routine but it is cruelty-free)
This is the best natural facial scrub I have come across. I use it bi-weekly to gently exfoliate my face without drying out my skin. After using, I am left with a more even skin tone and baby soft skin. Best part? It’s 100% cruelty-free and vegan.
Konjac sponges take washing your face to a new level. This sponge is 100% natural/vegan and is great for sensitive skin. I use it when I wake up to gently exfoliate my face before I apply moisturizer/makeup AND at night to wash it all off.
There are a lot of plant-based protein powders out there.. but how many are organic and actually taste as good as they are for you? In my opinion, Orgain is the best vegan protein product on the market. This is the only protein powder I will drink. I drink a shake once a day so it has become a staple of my plant-based diet. Winner gets the choice between a vanilla or chocolate tub.
If you haven’t heard of this amazing company, allow me to introduce you to Little Words Project. Their bracelets feature an inspirational word surrounded by a strand of Sworvorski crystals. Each bracelet comes with a unique numbered tag so you can register it on their website (so cool). You wear the little word for as long as you need and then pass it on to someone else who could use a little inspiration. Talk about a beautiful concept 🙂
I love Orgain so much I had to include my second favorite product in this giveaway! This powder is a blend of 50 organic superfoods in one great tasting powder. It contains organic vegetables, fruits, fiber (7 grams/serving) and probiotics (5 billion/serving). The perfect addition to help you boost the nutrition of your shakes!
These are my guilty pleasure and I eat them more often than I would like to admit. They are not vegan (contain milk product) but their ingredient list is a lot less scary than the beloved Reeses. I dare to you to try and only eat one (never worked for me).
