The Coverup

I fell in love with this summery print when I saw it on the Target sale rack (incidentally, it was at the same time this guy came up to chat). I also loved the price tag – only $9.08.

Nope, I just added a slip and a tank, and I was good to go.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not crazy. I don’t push the envelope too drastically. I mean I still buy random clothes from Target so… [Continue Reading]

    I’m Not Any Different
  • Every winter, I schedule a chemical peel at Dr. Prischmann’s office. I’ve mentioned before that I have melasma, and this helps to lighten some of the discoloration from that.
