Meet My Shoulder: Elsa

I’d like to introduce you to my left shoulder, who I have conveniently, and hopefully temporarily, renamed Elsa. Like the character in the popular film, my left shoulder is FROZEN. She’s complicated.

Spring Shoes Shopping Deal from ShoeBuy


Thanks to ShoeBuy for offering me the opportunity to shop their Spring Collections. All opinions are my own. Pretty much everyone has had it with winter.
