FitBloggin’ Excitement!

spices for health

I will go ahead and apologize to any of you who have zero interest in FitBloggin' because the next few weeks are going to be jam-packed with lots of exclamation points about it.

Gwynnie Bee New Arrivals


It's new arrival time at Gwynnie Bee, which I affectionately refer to as "the Netflix of clothes." (Check out my other Gwynnie Bee posts here.)

For example, I have wanted to try lace for a while, but couldn't commit to buying a lace shirt I might wear once. I also wanted to experiment with different silhouettes or prints that I know I wouldn't Continue Reading
