At the start of every year, there is a tradition to have New Year’s Resolutions.  Basically goals for the new year that just started.  This is a great idea, but I have never really been on board with the whole idea because I have seen far too many people come February, fall off the wagon… Continue reading Mid Year Resolutions: Time for Change

Feeling all fancy dancy~

Its day three of wearing a dress to work.  Mind you I am wearing leggings with them, so it’s still quite comfy and I pair them with boots, so it’s not like I am all fancy with tights and stilettos or anything, but it’s still a dress.

I stood in my walk-in closet and looked at my extensive collection of clothing.  Shirts all organized by style, followed by skirts, then dresses.  There are so many items on the rack that it… Continue reading The Waredrobe: Out with the Old
