Throwback Thursday: Ethan Craft

By Julia CasellaI can make Sex And The City references all day long. Same with The Office. I'm pretty good when it comes to recalling Gossip Girl, The OC and I live for Kardashian quotes.

Like, this morning post-Flywheel, my hair was a non-uniform curly. Then Bill called! So I went to Drybar for a blow-out. Do you remember this commercial? Subscribe via my RSS feed.

Throwback Thursday: Yoga To Combat The Sunday Blues

Intro By Julia Casella Sometimes it's hard to pick a favorite! My favorite movie, song, painting, book, family member ( yea I said that), and obviously, beauty product changes constantly. That's why I can't get a tattoo even though sometimes I really want one. But when it comes to picking my favorite BBJ article there is no doubt in my mind-- it is and forever will be Fitness Blogging Junkie: Yoga to Combat the Sunday Blues.I didn't follow Amber's advice ( sorry A!) and pick up yoga but I did Continue Reading [...]
