10 Ways I Met My Goal of “10K by May” on Instagram

I don’t know about you, but when I have a goal I want to hit, I always give it a catch phrase.

My Week in Style: P.F. I love you

I admittedly have a love affair with my All American PF Flyers. Named after famed Celtics basketball player Bob Cousy, these puppies truly are a throwback to the 50s. Don’t get me wrong, I love my black high-top Chuck Taylor’s as much as the next girl – but as far as comfort and style goes, PFs get my vote any day.
