    Second Hand September

    Second Hand September

    I recently discovered the Second Hand September challenge via the wonderful world of Instagram. The premise of the challenge is that you don't buy ANYTHING new for the entire month of September, and in turn you help save the planet, and you also probably help you bank account out as well.

    Baby Phat Is Back!

    Baby Phat Is Back!
