MY STYLE: The decision to TRY AGAIN

I quit my job two years ago to chase my dream. I wanted to be a full time creative: blogger, author, and digital content creator. I failed, we’ve discussed. I went back to the regular working world. My return wasn’t glorious; it was needed and necessary. Why? I was broke and broken.

Securing your bags with Bloom Bras

FINALLY, a sports bra that lifts and supports that come in extended sizes? Whoa! When the team at Bloom Bras gifted me a their revolutionary sports bra, I was a bit skeptical.
