Discouraged: I Don't Know If I Can Keep Homeschooling

Would You Buy Designer Clothes?

I was recently at a party where a woman noticed my purse, a messenger bag from Target's recent Liberty of London collection (she guessed it was Anthropologie), and we got to talking about the new designer collaborations at Target and other big box stores and affordable fashion in general. "Even if I had the money," she declared, "I wouldn't spend it on designer clothes." Why throw money at expensive designer clothes, she asked, when fashionable clothing can be had for so much less at places like H&M and Zara and even Target? ...more

I don't understand BlogHer! Why Most Active Groups have "last reply 25 weeks 3 days ago"?

I am looking for communities to join. The first one that looked interesting only has 3 members and two posts. The second one that looked interesting was listed in the "most active groups" section. But then I read, "last reply 25 weeks 3 days ago in: The Juice, by Tropicana Trop50" I get frustrated with the way this works. This is the third night I've tried to get more active here. What is wrong with me?! Warmest regards, Hadley Earabino, Martha Beck Life Coachwww.HadleyCoaches.com404-313-7770
