You may wonder where I get some of my best deals. Thrift and consignment stores are definitely great places to check out.

Shop Review: Francesca’s Collection

Shae is so fashion-savvy, she is actually one of my personal fashion icons. When I’m feeling especially well-dressed, I call it “channeling my inner-Shae”.

These earrings began my obsession with the Francesca’s Collection store.

Many earrings and statement necklaces later, I went last night and found the ultra cute stud earrings.

Moving shoefies

My latest habit is trying to get some kind of physical activity at least 5 days a week.

I don’t care if it’s just a quick 10 minute walk. We’re talking about consistency here!

So here is my action shots from my “move the body” habit!


Looking tired but layered for warmth l with my scarf, Marmot softshell, and my #shelburnehat
Away we go!

Look at my super human speed!
And done

What about you? Want to get more movement in your life? Start with 5 minutes a day and build up from there.
Any kind of movement works. 

It’s all about starting with consistency.
