Friday, February 17, 2012      4 comments

Sunday, January 01, 2012      5 comments

So this morning I thought it would be a good idea to retake all my measurements considering I haven't done so in 7 months. The numbers prove that I haven't really cared enough to bother taking the measurements too. My bust, waist, thigh and hi... Read more
