Tweet I bought this pretty scarf print blouse over a year ago, and forgot all about. SMH.  I have been slowly cleaning out my closet over the last few months, and finding quite a few lost hidden treasures along the way. Speaking of cleaning out my closet, I discovered that Buffalo Exchange,  my FAVE shop […]

Tweet Alright y’all, I didn’t mean for this week to be a complete wash, but it was…and I have a good reason.  You guys, OMG…over these last three months when I’ve been working like a damn slave from sun up to sun down, and not taking lunch breaks, not working out, and eating whatever I […]

Tweet Sooooo, I bought these pastel purple jeans from H&M at the start of fall.  I swear they were the longest jeans of all time. They must have been made for Karlie Kloss because only a super model’s legs are that long. hehe! Anyway, they sat in my closet all fall and winter long waiting […]

Breaking All The Rules…

Tweet I’m baaaaaack, after taking a much needed blogging break.  I can’t technically call it a vacation because I’ve still been working insane hours at my full-time job, but just giving myself the freedom to sign off at the end of the night and just chill made all the difference in my stress level.  I […]
