My (nearly) 3 years of Shopping ban are over!

I didn’t shop for clothes, shoes or makeup since September 2016, except for 4 pairs of Thai yoga pants, and a pair of running shoes. After the hand-clapping is over and done, I will tell you that this wasn’t a problem for me since I am an introvert and dislike going to malls and stores, […]
