Later this Summer I’m taking a trip to Greece with one of my best friends. In preparation, we went swimsuit shopping and I wound up buying not one, but two one-piece swimsuits. I seriously do not need even one more swimsuit, let alone two–and one-pieces? Yeah, not usually my...Read more

Over the weekend I was relaxing at the pool with a Bloody Mary and a good book, and I overheard a group of girls talking about another girl. YES I was at the pool. It’s Southern California, what can I say? Some days in “Autumn” it’s 80 degrees and sunny,...Read more
