The FITting Room: know before you go & keep it sporty 

To know me is to know that I'm a sporty kind of girl. My go to look is commonly "jeans and t-shirt."

I place a very high value on the reverent, incredible magic we call SLEEP!  It’s an essential part of the routine. My sanctuary, aka my bed, is hands down my happiest hello and my hardest goodbye.
