I don’t care … More Fashion Review: Grammys 2016

I’m really gonna start trying though – I promise! This post is well, a baby step haha. A few weeks ago, it … More Walking in a Winter Wonderland aka My Backyard
You may have noticed that there haven’t been many fashion posts lately. I’m sorry about that!

I’m impressed – this is actually the most impressed I’ve been by a red carpet in YEARS, like legit….YEARS. The 2016 Golden Globes really did have some great looks last night.
