    friday five – on a saturday

    I was sitting at lunch today mentally making a list of things to write about for my Friday Five. It was only after I made the list that I realized that today was Friday. It was a looong week, my friends. So now it’s 11:29 Friday night and I’m just starting to write my Friday Five post. procrastination at its finest. 1. It wouldn’t be a post from me if I didn’t mention Mindy so here we go. Tuesday’s episode – whoa, Mindy. If you haven’t watched it yet, go and do that now because I’m spoiling it in 3…2…1… OK. It was Peter’s last episode which makes me kind…

    breaking up is hard to do

    I’ve made a decision that was not an easy one to make. I’m breaking up with Target. For a while, anyway. Target has teamed up with Lilly Pulitzer to create a 250 piece line of clothing and accessories which will be launched in April. This line is supposed to be more inclusive and cater to all sizes. Great! Except that the plus size portion of this endeavor will only be available online. Seriously? Come on. I don’t particularly like Lilly Pulitzer’s style so this kind of doesn’t bother me as much as it would if someone like Kate Spade had designed a line. However, I am not the only person…

    Fast Friday Five!

    I don’t have a lot of time to write this so I’m going to get right to it. And if you’re wondering, no, there won’t be alliterative titles for these post every time. I just got lucky this week. I just found out this afternoon that Fox has ordered more episodes for The Mindy Project! So now season 3 will have 21 episodes and I couldn’t be happier! Maybe next week I won’t include something TMP related, but for now let me live. I am addicted to the dollar sections in stores like Target and Michaels. I know I said that last week, but I only mentioned Target. I have…

    Blogtober14 Day 16: Fall fashion

    Another day, another picture heavy post. Day 16 is all about Fall fashion. I scoured Pinterest and Polyvore for some “If I had the money, body and time to put this together, I would totally wear this” outfits. Enjoy! At the end of the day, I should really just live in  this shirt.

    plus size pixies… sort of

    In between New Girl and The Mindy Project, I saw a commercial for the Old Navy Pixie Pants. You know the one with Amy Pohler as the judge? I love the part when she tells the 150 year old court reporter that she’s driving them to Old Navy. Anyway, I had about 10 minutes before my beloved Mindy Project started and I decided to check out those magical pants. Especially since it’s now officially Fall and that means I need some new clothes. God knows I didn’t have enough from last year. And if he didn’t, he could just check the Rubbermaids chock full of clothes stored in the basement. I headed…

    A Tieks Critique

    I have horrible feet. They’re super wide, really flat and they stick out. My ankles, knees and shins only add to the problem. They hurt constantly (not chronically though, thank goodness), I can’t walk for more than 10 minutes without them hurting, and they have a hate/hate relationship with shoes. No matter how many glowing recommendations I get for flats, heels, sandals or sneakers, my feet prove them wrong. Everything rubs, pinches and doesn’t support. I know it may sound like I’m picky or a complainer but, as with any other type of pain or bodily complaint, I know what I feel and it sucks. Enter Youtube. I was watching…
