I Got Married and Had a Baby in the Same Year

I guess the best place to start is where we left off.  I was in a great relationship, posting outfit ideas, and blogging about how to dress my athletic endo-mesomorph body.  I had my year completely planned out. Everything I wanted to do with this blog, my Youtube channel, and my acting career. I was ready. Then something even more exciting happened - I got engaged! My husband and I immediately began planning our elopement.

Athletic Body Type Fashion Picks for Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday is here once again, so it's time to stock up on styles that look great on your athletic body. Most female muscular body types are broad in the shoulders, and narrow in the hips. This creates a kind of "inverted triangle" shape. The less amount of hip you have, the more important it is to find bottoms that create fullness along the pevlis.

The Holidays are upon us and credit cards are lit. Yes, LIT. This is the most expensive time of the year, and our bank accounts deplete with every check mark on the “nice list.” Yes, being generous has a cost and retailers love a generous heart.

If you don’t have the heart to do the latter, the question becomes, how can one give without going broke in the process? Here are a few very practical and easy tips and tools to…

How To Start Managing Money

Growing up, money wasn't exactly a positive topic of discussion. I heard many sayings like "Money is the Root of all Evil", which eventually turned to "LOVE of money is the Root of all Evil. Also sayings like, "Don't count the money in my pocket" whenever I wanted my mother to buy something that seemed easy to purchase. There were also notions that the wealthy somehow weren't as noble or God fearing because they had money. Not all of these ideas came from home, many came from hearsay on television and in politics. In contrast, I witnessed the wealthy give openly to…

Oh, and just because it was your favorite pair of overalls in the 9th grade doesn't mean you have to hold onto it. Take a photo of it and stick it in your scrapbook to save some space. That way you still keep the memory of it, but it won't continue to clutter your closet.I know it can be difficult. Back in the day, I was the top hoarder of all my friends. I kept old graded school papers, clothing,…

How To Decide Which Clothes to Throw Away

There comes a time when we all need a little wardrobe upgrading in our lives.  With so many clothes staring back at us in our closets, which ones do we keep and which ones get tossed? When I was growing up, I used to give all of my inanimate objects feelings and personalities. I imagined they said things like, "pick me, wear me!" and I'd choose accordingly.  As I got older, that mentality fell away, but it was replaced with an attachment to my clothing. Almost like a fragrance, each item reminded me of a time and place that was…
