Stitch Fix Review June 2017

Some Keepers and Some Return To Senders

Here we are again, me in front of my mirror taking amateurish selfies with bad lighting. Ahem, I hope to improve my photography skills.

This is my 6th Fix and I’ve loved something in every delivery. I was very specific with my stylist about what I wanted and she sent just what I asked for (be careful what you wish for!). I appreciate that Stitch Fix pays attention to the details. I have a size 8 waist and size 12 hips, my Stylist knows this and works hard to find things that will flatter my figure. Pear shapes rejoice! Continue reading

Healthy Grab & Go Snacks

Bare Baked Banana Chips

Healthy snacks  TASTE GREAT (I feel you rolling your eyes, stop that!).  We all agree, we’d like to make better food choices, but those better choices usually taste like sawdust☹. NO MORE! Today you are being liberated from drab snacks.

Trying to lose weight? Want to maintain your current weight? Research shows that snack choices may be the answer. Over the past 30 years, Americans have increased their calories intake by about 30% increase. Almost all of these extra calories are in SNACKS. That means we are busting out of our jeans and those darn Snickers are to blame!

You’ll be happy to know that there are plenty of decadent, salty, crunchy, even chocolatey snacks to love! I’ve tested them all (poor me–haha) and I’m confident you’ll love these other better-for-you snack options.  Continue reading

Stitch Fix Review April 2017

I love Stitch Fix! I’ve tried other clothing subscriptions in the past and for me, Stitch Fix gets my style the best. I’ve been using Stitch Fix for six months and each Fix is better than the last. Initially, I was a bit vague about what I needed and wanted which didn’t give my Stylist much feedback. After reading reviews online and talking with my friends who use Stitch Fix I realized I needed to communicate my needs in more detail, here’s what I did. Continue reading

Coffee, My Secret Weapon

5 ways coffee helped me maintain my weight loss

Yup, you’ve guessed, I LOVE coffee.

My love affair with the caffeinated goddess started about 20 years ago, back when the cool kids at work still got smoke breaks. It looked so fun to stand on the loading dock of the hotel and shoot the breeze, luckily I hated smoking so I took up coffee. I have no regrets. Coffee started as a way to partake in the restaurant crew’s gossip but over time it took on many other roles. Friend, chocolate substitute, weight loss partner, even the occasional substitute for a cocktail. Is it too much to say coffee saved me? Maybe not. I attribute a large part of my success to coffee, and for that, I shall remain forever loyal. Continue reading

Stitch Fix May 2017 Review

I live in a small town and I love fashion, now you see the problem! We have ONE, yup I said O-N-E, department store. I am not complaining because we also have the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches and I’ll take sugar white sands over another big box store every day of the week! To keep my duds up to date I’ve started using a subscription clothing service called Stitch Fix. My personal stylist sends me a sparkling, perfectly wrapped, box of goodness each month and I’m always waiting for that delivery like a six-year-old on Christmas morning! I keep what I love and I send back the rest (shipping is free!).
