Stress. How Do You Do It?

I realize that stress ages a lot of us beyond our years...what is the key to managing stress? It seems like life is either crazy insane busy or dull.  It is hard to find that middle ground.  It would be ideal to just work part time to make ends meet and the rest of the time enjoy your hobbies, travel or exercise, but in the USA today, it seems like the only way to make ends meet is for everyone to work full time.  (unless you are born with a silver spoon-I was born with a plastic spoon) What do you do to handle stress?  I try to exercise at the gym in my apartment, but I don't always make it, and in the nicer months I like to run outside.   That is what I miss about living in California is that I could exercise outside all year round.  In Seattle, its limited.

Prada Sunglasses - Amazing Accessories!

I don't know about you, but I have watched a lot of dumb reality shows over the past decade.  The one that is the most addictive and annoying is "The Bachelor" shows.  They always say the word "Amazing" - its overused so much you just want to throw things at the TV! I found some sunglasses that are more worthy of the word Amazing in my opinion.  Here we go..these are fun, funky, eclectic and aaaammmaaazzziiiiinnnng! $290 at Nordstrom.  I just have to have them! I have been collecting and wearing designer sunglasses for 20 years! I have never lost a pair and I love them all.  It is one accessory that always makes me feel cool and fashionable.  (fun factoid: It also prevents crows feet.  I have very few crowsfeet for my age because I wear sunglasses year round.)  Have a nice day and Happy New Year 2013!  If you find any AMAZING accessories - please share them with me!
