A mid-month catch up: December

Forgive me this predictable introduction, please, but I have to say it: how are we so close to Christmas already? There’s barely a week of this year that didn’t feel like it happened extremely quickly, and certainly the past few weeks seem to have mystically disappeared.

A very important list of the reasons that jumpsuits are fantastic

This is a sponsored post. Look, this might be a really frivolous topic, but a little bit of frivolity never hurt anyone so we’re going to talk about it anyway. I think – and I don’t say this lightly – that the jumpsuit may be the best item of clothing I've ever been introduced to.… Continue reading A very important list of the reasons that jumpsuits are fantastic
