So these are my hands.  I snapped these photos earlier today when I was out on a run.  Today and tomorrow are supposed to be on the warmer side here in Philly so I decided to take advantage and get outside in the fresh air.

After posting a little over a week ago about how my stupid 30-something body does not want to let me lose weight easily, I've been slowly losing my exercise mojo. Another week gone by of working hard and I stayed the same in my weight. So this week, I've totally lost it. I know how this story goes because it's happened before - I bust myself for … [Read more...]

Recently, I had to research a style piece for jewelry trends for the spring and summer.  The overwhelming consensus with those "in the know" with fashion trends was that colored or colorful jewelry (and bold) is going to be the trend in the coming months.
