What are your two movies that you saw in the past year would you recommend to us?
Les Misérables, but have hankies at the ready
Looper – that movie really blew my mind!
What are your two biggest guilty pleasures?

The office where I’m temping has a Keurig brewer and Celestial Seasonings India Spice Chai Tea is one of the options.


The slightly spicy flavor is perfect for this rain-soaked morning,

I can’t work out for 3 hours a day like I did during funemployment, but I can walk more and fit in a few  Blogilates challenges.

4. What is something you hope that you accomplish in 2013 that you did not in 2012?
I want to create a capsule wardrobe.
