Sometimes it’s just about fashion. I’m a Minnesota girl, and I love fashion and pretty things. But I also live in a very snowy… [Continue Reading]

  • I have never been a Black Friday shopper. Honestly, I spent too many years working the retail end of this day to get excited about actually shopping it.
