With my wedding coming up next year, I’ve cut WAY back on shopping. Meaning, I only go shopping about once a month instead of every other week as I did in the past. Since my budget is pretty strict, I’ve found workarounds that allow for me to indulge in yet another one of my guilty pleasures.

For years, I’ve turned down plenty of invitations to join friends at Bikram and hip-hop yoga classes because I felt once I made the jump to yoga, I’d become a pretentious L.A. hipster who prides themselves on drinking organic beer.
I’ve loved Tracee Ellis Ross ever since Girlfriends. In my head she’s Auntie Tracee. Although her hair has always been goals, she’s been killing it lately.
