My friend Ashley attended New York Fashion Week this past fall, and gave us some behind-the-scenes insight into its craziness.

Get Fit With #ElleCycleOnline

You know what they say: a healthy body is the foundation for a healthy mind. About a year ago, I finally decided to take a few extra steps and start working on my fitness.

Happy Listening!

20 Things I Learned Before Turning 20
