I am a self-professed “shopaholic” quitting cold turkey in 2011. This blog aims to chronicle my quest to conquer 365 days free from clothes shopping. The caveat? I may use gift cards given to me. I work in the pharmaceutical industry, while also juggling my responsibilities of wife and mother. Husband, Steve and children Owen & Olivia are my world. I enjoy travel, photography, fashion and anything combination thereof. When I have a bit of free time, I can be found daydreaming of adventures in New York, scheming a new business strategy, planning a trip to anywhere, embarrassing my husband or engaging in some sort of new hobby. At the moment? It’s sewing and Pilates. I love telling stories and listening to them too. I’ve been told I’m humorous. Jury’s still out on that one.
