It’s been a while since I’ve ordered myself a Fix and I’m excited to share my November Stitch Fix Review with you. This month, I requested clothes I could layer and bring from Fall to Winter, assuming we’d actually have a Fall here (glares at snow on the ground outside my office window.) I wanted […]

Bia Sport Watch Review

Bia Sport Watch Review

Pin It

I received special tester pricing for my watch.  I’ve been working on this Bia Sport watch review for what feels like weeks.

My Early 2015 Goal Race

Pin It

I’ve been trying to plan my “what’s next” for a while now. It seems silly to a) be planning out races this far in advance and b) acting like I’m Kara Goucher or something with how big of a deal I’ve been making out of the whole thing, but I’ve got a flair for the […]

Easy DIY Spider Halloween Wreath

Halloween is just over a week away, and I’m still decorating. Sure, my inside decorations have been up for a week or so, but I’m just starting to decorate the exterior. I had a great Halloween wreath last year, but, sadly, it got destroyed in storage. Not wanting to spend a lot of time or […]
