Pantone has announced that 2013’s color of the year is emerald, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Green (any shade of it!) is my favorite color, which means that the fact that this year will see an emerald takeover in everything from fashion to makeup to home wear makes me sufficiently pleased. I thought I’d collect some of my favorite emerald items of 2013 thus far. This list will probably get longer as the year goes by (and can I […]

I’m sure you all already know this, but March is International Women’s Month, and organizations worldwide are teaming up to celebrate how amazing the female species is. I was able to write a post for Marie Claire on the subject, which I’d love to share with y’all. And obviously my #WomenWishes is that plus-size ladies can start embracing their bodies and loving their curves and rolls instead of trying to adhere to some sort of pre-conceived notion of what it […]

…so we can have the trendiest babies ever. They’d be little punk/vintage hybrids who wear Bernie Dexter and MAC liquid eyeliner and it’d be amazing. Plus they’d be ridiculously curvy — as long as they were girls. I don’t really want to know what the boy babies would look like. So yeah, this needs to happen. #girlcrush

I was kind of pleased with my outfit today…which is why I’m sharing it…even though I realize this is kind of narcissistic…but then again, I think all writers are just a smidge narcissistic…so it’s ok…maybe.

By absolute chance, and luck, I stumbled upon Domino Dollhouse, the self-proclaimed e-commerce site for “plus-size clothing without compromise.” Their mash-up of sci-fi looks with vintage and rockabilly styles has me in an absolute tizzy, and actually looking forward to my birthday this year (sending out winks here to those who are wondering what to buy me in three weeks!).

People seem to complain a lot about their legs. This isn’t something I’ve ever understood. I quite like my legs. It’s funny, because skinny people complain that they have chicken legs while heavier people complain they have tree trunk legs, and you never hear of anyone being happy if they have something in between either. I suppose this is like most things; the blonde wants to be brunette; the brunette wants to be blonde. But I, for one, proudly subscribe […]

I never used to be a big fan of pink, or of Molly Ringwald for that matter. But these days, I’m loving bright colors. I was given this crazy bright pink dress from a friend who got it at H&M (the biggest size they had was a 14 so it’s a smidge tight in the chest, but who cares?) and I genuinely love it. Plus, it gave me a good excuse to finally wear the over-sized choker I got at […]

There are all these misconceptions about very large masses of land – entire continents and countries assigned to a few main clichés or stereotypes by which people in other continents and countries judge them by. America: land of the free, home of the brave, where the streets are made of gold and people of all shapes, colors and styles are best friends and sings songs about their togetherness.
