Target Pharmacy makes my life easier with the Healthful Pharmacy App & Target e-GiftCard giveaway #TargetSponsored

Being a busy working mom, I often have to rely on an impressive bag of tricks to help juggle daily activities and all the little things that keep my family moving. We have very little time for getting sick around here. Yet- it happens, that’s for sure! When it does happen, one of my “impressive tricks” is Target Pharmacy. Whether in store, online, or via mobile Target Pharmacy really helps the pharmacy experience stay easy and enjoyable for our whole family.

The Healthful Pharmacy App is a big plus for this mom! If you haven’t tried it, you really need to. This app brings Target Pharmacy right to your fingertips, making it convenient for you to manage all of your Target Pharmacy needs. The interface is super easy to maneuver and use. I recently used the app to search our daughter’s prescription history and request a refill within minutes. I was also able to see that we’re really close to our next Target Pharmacy Rewards . Yay! All while sitting in a very loud room full of kids. The best part – the script was ready when I arrived to pick it up. No waiting. I like that.


Target Healthful App features:

  • Transfer your prescription with our one-click transfer by photo
  • Easy prescription refills
  • Sign up and track your Pharmacy Rewards credits
  • View prescription history
  • Set up notifications/reminders to take your medications

Some other great Target Pharmacy features that makes my life easier are $4 Generic Prescriptions , on the spot Vaccinations , and the all important for our girls Free Medicine Flavoring . I also like that Target Accepts most insurance plans, including Medicare Part D, making it convenient for me to fill and pick up for my parents too.

Not using Target Pharmacy? Give it a try! It’s super easy to Flip Your Script!

The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD Review & Giveaway #disneymusic #enmnetwork

I received the Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD as a member of the Entertainment New Media Network. No further compensation was received and all opinions are my own. This post may also contain affiliate links.


The little Mermaid has special meaning in our house. It was our older daughter’s first theater experience, and has remained a favorite of hers into adulthood. It is also a favorite of our younger daughter, and most recently, our granddaughter. A set of characters, a movie and a soundtrack to touch the hearts of all three of our girls, who are so different in age, is pretty special in my opinion. So being chosen for this review makes my job real easy – we LOVE it. We’ve listen to it several times already. So often that our granddaughter has been heard singing ” Poor Unfortunate Souls”, and “Part of Your World” while she showers.

The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection

The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection is a two CD set packaged in a beautiful CD-sized hardcover book. The CD set features the songs and score from the film by Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman. The book contains illustrations, song lyrics and extensive liner notes about the film and music. Created by Lorelay Bove, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios.

“I hope listeners experience some of our memories and I hope they take away, as I do, a lot of re-discoveries. The demos of some the song moments take the listener through the process on how they were developed, understanding what the authors wanted to communicate, and ultimately leading into what the song became.” – Menken

The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection

The Little Mermaid is the fourth release in The Legacy Collection joining The Lion King, Mary Poppins and Sleeping Beauty. The next release is set for later this month and it is a 4 disc set of Fantasia. Soundtracks for Pinocchio, Toy Story, Disneyland, Lady and the Tramp, Pocahontas, The Aristocats and Cinderella are set for release throughout the year.

Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection: The Little Mermaid 2-disc set is available at Disney Music Emporium and on iTunes.
