A Gift to Myself – The Wing DC

Blogging Lifestyle

When I used to get my annual review at my old job, if I received a bonus I'd buy myself something to celebrate. One year I bought a Brahmin bag, one year I booked a trip to the beach, one year I pampered myself at a spa. It was a way to congratulate myself for a job well done, a year of hard work. Bloggers often celebrate a big campaign…

My Workout Journey

Lifestyle

I ached all over. Maybe it was my pillow. Maybe we needed a new mattress. I wasn’t sleeping well, and even if I did get more than five uninterrupted hours I still was exhausted the following day.

What I Wore: Silk and Linen

Outfit Posts Spring

For years I shied from linen. I'm already a klutz who often has a dribble of coffee on her shirt, a smear of cream cheese on her cuff.

Oh, those dreaded pinholes in t-shirts and knit tops! Such pinholes are caused by…
