Abstinence April

No, not THAT kind of abstinence! What do you think I am, crazy??? #lovetoloveyoubaby What I’m talking about is abstaining from shopping. ‘Cause I like to shop. Like, really.

Daily Blog Challenge Day 3: My Favorite Movies

My Favorite Movies Today’s challenge should be pretty easy – I don’t have a long list of favorite movies. I know some poeple like to watch a certain movie over and over again. I am not one of those people. Rarely do I watch a movie more than once. What’s the point, when there are […]
