I Lost & Gained A Sibling In One Month

I was the luckiest sister in the world. I was one of three kids in my family, with the two most wonderful brothers imaginable. The three of us were close: the talk-every-day kind of close, the best-friend kind of close. So I was the luckiest sister in the world — and then I was the most heartbroken.

5 things to keep in mind if you want your clothes to influence your mood

When we get dressed each day, the majority of us don’t know exactly how much impact our sartorial choices have on our mood. The clothing we wear affects us on many levels, and when you think about it, it makes sense. If you purchase workout clothes that you love, you’ll be more inspired and inclined to hit the gym. If you wear a pair of jeans that get you excited because they fit just right, your confidence soars.
