Food Therapy

Good food is as satisfying as a good sale. So from time to time (probably more than that because I'm a foodie and I love to eat), I'll be providing some food therapy.

Video Reviews

While picture reveals of bags are nice. Video reviews of bags are better! As such, I will endeavor to post as many video reviews of bags as possible. However, I will only be reviewing bags that I like. Life is too short to review bags that I dislike. Plus, at the end of the day, it really is just a matter of personal opinion/taste.

A Buffet Wardrobe Is Important...

What is a buffet wardrobe you may ask? A buffet wardrobe is a collection of clothing suitable for buffets. Just because you're going to eat like a pig doesn't mean you have to do so looking like one. ;)'s important to be wearing forgiving (think loose) clothing at the end of a buffet meal. You might be super full, but you don't want to feel like an overstuffed sausage! Also, it's important to avoid wearing lighter colors. You never know when someone else's accident becomes your accident.  With all this being said, think empire waists, a-line/trapeze shapes and dark colors.

(Yes...I have a buffet coat!!)
