8 Facts to Know About Collagen & Its Benefits

Happy Sunday, everyone! It’s overcast and cool here today, and I have all of my windows open. Airing out your home in the springtime is the best, isn’t it?! As for me, I’ve already been to spin class and have my laundry in the dryer, so I’d say it’s been a great morning so far.

Happy Thursday, ya’ll! With the weather finally warming up, I’ve been in this mood to shop, shop, shop (I haven’t actually been shopping, just online window shopping so far!).

Who here has seen those ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan’s “Arms of an Angel” song playing with b-roll of sad, lonely, abused, neglected animals? Ughhh, I literally cry every time I watch one.
