Fashion Flash | It's Almost Summer!

It's time to start a new week...

I don't know about you but this time of year, I get the urge to purge. Clean out the excess, clear clutter, organize and have everything fresh and at my fingertips. I've been taking care of my beauty stash; I tossed expired stuff and passed along to family and friends new/nearly new and nice things that I hated to see go to waste. Next came closets and kitchen cabinets and my husband and I went through all of the papers that accumulate, over time and shredded bags of old stuff. Ahhh! I love getting rid of old junk that is just taking up space. Then it was time to turn to my computer. Since it's fairly new, I didn't have to do too much but I did spend a good hour or so cleaning out my contacts list. Holy shit! How did that become the bloated monster it did? I'll tell ya, clearing out that insane list of contacts, many of which I haven't used in years was so satisfying!

Now to tackle my inbox...
