Wednesday, June 27, 2012      2 comments

Last weekend, I realized that many of my bras just didn't give me the oomph and support that they had. They were, well, falling down on the job. So I set out on a quest to figure out why and to find out what size I truly am. First stop: On... Read more

"It's just like riding a bike." How many times have you or someone you know said that phrase? It is used to illustrate that once you learn to do something, you'll never forget how to do it. I have a confession: I never learned how to ride a bik... Read more
