Tis the Season! As if shopping for everyone on your list isn't enough during the holidays, we then have to worry about WHAT TO WEAR to the countless number of family/friend/office/just-because holiday parties. I love mixing it up and creating outfits that won't strap me with pieces I know I can't use later in my wardrobe.

I grew up with a lot of love for Disney cartoons, and like most girls I love Disney princesses. But unfortunately, not all women and girls are able to discern the Disney fairy tales they love from how real life actually works.

Yes, some people just want to wait.
There are so many reasons as to why people break up. Sometimes someone cheats, or there's a moment of realization that you don't see the world the same way, or maybe in the saddest of terms, love just dies. While those tend to be the most common reasons for why people split, another reason, one that you may not have heard of, is that your microbes just weren't a match. That's right; your bacteria may have had their eye on someone else.
