THE BIG NEWS OH EM GEEEEEEE

This weekend in Ross, I saw an adorable coffee mug with the phrase “Bloom where you are planted” emblazoned on it. I’m familiar with the phrase, and at first blush it sounds sort of comforting and motivational, right?  Make the best of a bad situation!  You can’t control life, so just deal with it!  That’s not […]

Bomb-Azz Reviews #3: Sex Bomb (plus clothes and food because come on, it’s me)
