   Night out with Faux Fur Vest Last year when I was obsessed with finding a Faux Fur Vest, I looked everywhere for one that not only looked good but also did’t cost a lot.  So you can imagine my surprise when I walked into Catos Fashion last October and found this beauty.  I could […]

When there is spilled gravy… my fridge with spilled gravy In December, I purchased Marie Kondo’s audio book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.
