100 is a good number.  Why?  Because it means something.  100 represents something you’ve accomplished, you’ve reached.  It’s a target, a goal, an accomplishment.  It’s the days it took or the hours spent.

Wait a Retro Minute… The Tribulations of Non-Progressive Thought

There’s a lot of classic things, I like.  I’m currently obsessed with New Balance 574s. Yes, I wear them everywhere, to the gym, at the beach, kickin’ back on a sweet summer day in a jean mini skirt,  cute jean shorts, or must bummin with my comfy jeans. It’s so damn cooooool.  I can’t wait…

I Hate Veggies…

  If this is the closest you get to eating veggies, which… it’s a super veggie burrito which has cheese, beans, rice and lettuce…Don’t!!!

I’ve Become a Purist

I know we look ridiculous in this photo.  Me and my boo… just chillin in Maui. It reminds me of the dreaminess we felt just hanging out on the hammock, soakin’ in the rays, walking, etc. Well, I wanted to talk about being pure and we look like purists here, in the most serene sense…
