American Heart Association You Go Girl 2

A few weeks ago I traveled to Chicago with American Heart Association to kick off their newest Go Red For Women campaign, #YouGoGirl. I’ve been a long time supporter of American Heart Association. Their Red Dress Collection fashion show is one of my all time favorite events during fashion week. So when I was asked to help kick off this campaign I was thrilled.

how to get a jump start on the new year
Well beauties, it is officially that time of year again! No, I am not talking about the obvious; holiday season. I am talking about the time of year when everyone and their mama (literally) begins to make plans for the New Year. Some are realistic and others are farfetched but nearly everyone has at least one New Year’s resolution.

This holiday season, I am overly “emo” about everything. Every sad movie scene (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 really did a number on me), or depressing verse in any sappy song (please don’t play All I Want For Christmas in my presence) you can best believe that I am in tears accompanied by a snotty nose and uncontrollable lip quivers.

Moving can be an absolute pain! I’ve moved at least 7 times in the last 10 years and I only hired movers one of those times. Not only is the act of moving your things from one place to another utterly soul shattering, but packing all your belongings and then unpacking them with an attempt to put them exactly where they were could cause a panic attack.

While I AM not moving ANY TIME SOON, I figured since I am a bit of a pro at this I’d share all the moving hacks I’ve learned along the way and a few I Googled that I wish I had of known when I was moving.
