can’t let go


Last week, I had a major closet clean out and a “shop my closet” sale at my home. Both we’re über successful, I was able to make much-needed room in my closet and my friends were more than happy to take what I had purged. Then, whatever was left, I donated to Goodwill. In cleaning out my closet, I rediscovered this vintage military blazer I got ages ago. I rarely wear it, but it’s one of those pieces I just can’t let go. So, I’m vowing to wear it more, starting with this look.


And in more personal news: I’m sick, you guys! Actually, today I’m feeling a lot better, hence I was able to write this, but I got hit with that terrible flu that’s going around. I spent the last 48 hours in bed with a fever, body aches, chills and all the rest of it. It sucked! I’m still not 100% but definitely getting better. I tell you this as a reminder to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES! I kept hearing about everyone around me getting sick yet I continued to eat like crap and act as if the holidays we’re still here and then BAM, it got me. So eat well, get rest and don’t get sick. Okay? Cool.

    HEALTH ADVICE: Ginger is a best source of vitamine C – TRY to make yourself eat a bit of it every day!
