Back on Grass

I am back on GRASS!  Wheatgrass that is! I got slack about taking it.  It does taste and smell like GRASS.  The kind that grows in my front yard

Chris Tia Donaldson, author of Thank God I'm Natural, wrote and excellent article
on the benefits of wheatgrass.

Having broken my hip, in a tragic car accident, prompted me to try the GRASS, for arthritic purposes.

I quickly discovered that I gained more energy, less of a curvy girl appetite, and WHAT???  No pain in a hip that felt like someone was stabbing me in my hip socket and dragging the knife up and down!

The grass does enter your system within about 20 minutes.

Oh yeah, I also discovered that the wheatgrass is a cleanser.  Start off slowly, I recommend 1 oz shots.
I bought my wheatgrass in frozen containers, from Whole Foods.  However, I bought a juicer and now, I am growing my own seeds.

I have become a thrifter.  Partly in fault, to the Trendy Socialite.

Today, I went to my local Goodwill Center.  This one is awesome, if you don't mind sorting.  I don't!

You can buy the items by the pound.  I had 11 pounds worth of stuff! Total cost was 16.00!

I got:
2 purses/bags
1 rolling laptop case by Samsonite
1 vest
1 sportscoat/blazer
1 tunic style blouse
1 aqua dress- video coming later about that..

Here's the video

I am a follower of The Trendy Socialite.  She has shown me that being "Trendy" is not to hard to pull off.

The OOTD, was mostly thrfted.

The jacket was 6.95. thrifted
The shirt (actually a skirt, pulled up like a tube top) 2.95 thrifted
The pants- Ashley Stewart .9.99
The shoes- Nordstroms 20.00

Couldn't decide how to wear my hair up or down.
