My Cruelty-Free Style + Eco-Vegan & Budget-Friendly Fashion Tips

Over the years, I've really experimented (for better or for worse) with fashion. My middle-school years were when I lived on 80's hand-me-downs. In high school, I tried both tighter, more revealing clothing (barf) in my first two years, while in my last two years I lived in jeans & polos.

In college, I dressed like a guy - big shirts, baggy sweats, basketball shorts. After college, I tried more of a girly style.

It's taken 26 years, but I've finally found a style that works for my body & makes me feel confident & powerful!

Tis the season of holiday parties, Tofurky roasts, soynog, baked treats, & presents! Ah, my favorite time of the year! But just because the next few months tend to be more self-indulgent than others doesn't mean you should throw caution to the wind & binge on every pumpkin-flavored food within a 5-mile radius (#guilty).

My BIGGEST Tip For Financial Prosperity & Abundance

I work for a non-profit, meaning I don't make a whole lotta moolah. John is finishing up school, so we certainly are not loaded by any means.

Well, I'm about to reveal my secret!
