Style Snacks by Sara Lintner

  I love this new instagram campaign for Target by the talented Sara Lintner. Here’s what she had to say about it: It’s what’s on your list and what you didn’t even know you needed (and definitely can’t leave the store without). But it’s not just a mashup of killer products; it’s the details of...
