Candy Experience January 2018

In a twist of irony, one week after I write about four ways to avoid junk food, I'm reviewing a candy box. This just drives home a firm belief of mine though: treats are necessary, in moderation of course. I love candy, and while I try to focus more on healthy eating, everyone deserves a… Continue reading Candy Experience January 2018

Don’t Push My Buttons

There are two details that will always make a shirt catch my eye: lace, and buttons down the back. I can't help but fall in love with shirts with those two details.
