    Spring Clothing Haul

    I’m heading out to Los Angeles in a few weeks (I know, I can’t stop talking about it) and wanted to pick up some new clothes both for the trip and for work as the weather gets warmer. I’ve mentioned this before, but I only started my current job this past fall and it’s the first time I’ve had to rock business casual five days a week. I’m still working on getting pieces in my closet that work for both business casual and play, and that includes a few shopping trips now and then. Usually, I would just purchase new clothes online, but all my previous purchases from the Old Navy petite section…

    Gym Investments – Shoes

    When I started going to the gym, I was sill in college and the shoes I purchased to use on the elliptical were some basic tennis shoes.  I had some Saucony tennis shoes that I bought on Amazon just to do some basic cardio and to wear to my retail job for my eight hour shifts.  After really committing myself to the gym I invested in some running shoes and eventually some more athletic shoes that I would use for lifting. For my New Year’s Resolution of 2013, I decided I wanted to make running my resolution.  I ran once with my Saucony tennis shoes and decided I wasn’t about…
