I’ve Found Your Perfect T-Shirt Bras!

Please tell me I’m not alone. Please tell me someone out there also owns an entire drawer full of bras that are either too old, too big, or too small.

More & Less in 2017

I used to be one of those people that had to make a New Year’s resolution. I just had to have goals to keep me on track. I credit that to 1) being driven AF and 2) being single.
