Post-Holiday Workout

January 9, 2017

At the beginning of every new year companies flood the marketplace with advertisements on—diet plans, nutrition plans, exercise videos, gym memberships, etc.  Regardless of how, the end goal is the same, to help someone reach their weight loss goals.

Well I say this year, why not turn that focus onto your wardrobe too.

New Year, New Questions

I’ve picked my favorite 4 questions and provided my answers:

Sleep During The Holiday’s

December 19, 2016


Haflinger Slippers are on my Christmas list.

The holiday’s are approaching fast.  I only update my lounge/sleep capsule once a year.  Previously I did this during the fall season, but this year I’m updating my lounge capsule for the holiday’s instead.  The holiday’s are the time of year when I’m traveling and staying with relatives and/or entertaining guests at my home, which places my lounge/sleep capsule on display.  This means that it’s the perfect time to update this wardrobe capsule.

November 27, 2016

The holiday’s are approaching fast bringing with it one of my favorite things about this time of year, the opportunity to get dressed up.  My special occasion capsule is one of my least used capsules in my wardrobe.  In fact, it’s used so little, I’m purging it!

Why on earth would someone do this right before the holiday’s arrive?

Just Like New

September 25, 2016


My 6 year old steamer.

One of the things that I adore about new clothes, is the new clothes look and feel.  The colors are bright, the materials are not pilled (or stained, or torn), and there are no wrinkles!  After I wash something, it is just never the same as when it was purchased new.  And sometimes, that desire for something new, spurs me to want to shop.  Until I discovered steaming my clothes.
