I've been working out faithfully 5 days a week and trying to eat healthier and I am finally seeing results (other people are too...people I really don't even know at work are commenting!). I have officially lost 30 pounds since I started this j... Read more

This weekend I dusted off a pair of pants that have been hanging in the back of my closet since I bought them 2 years ago. I was not feeling inspired by any of my current wardrobe options, so I figured it was worth a shot. I am so glad I tried... Read more
