The Essentials: March 2015

Treating my soul and body to luxurious bathroom staples.

Let's not forget the wish-listed classic such as the button down silk shirt (found it for half-price on eBay!!) and trench coat (except I'm eyeing this one for its paunchy color). Curly-headed friends take note of Diva Dryer towel, it is phenom and has cut my drying time in half - seriously a game-changer

All-in-all I've seen myself spending less on clothing but more on cleanses (great deals through groupon) and investing in soothing body butters from Karelen. Not a bad trade if you ask me.

What are your essentials for the short month?

The Essentials: January 2015

This year, my pared down monthly essentials are going to focus less on wants which means less clothes and shoes. Don't worry, there will still be a few fashion-focused items. You'll also be seeing more lifestyle and fitness-geared things that can make life a tad bit easier. 

Let's get to it!

I'm getting away this month for some needed R&R which explains the swimsuit :). I've also been on a health-kick as I prepare myself for my next two half-marathons.
