    RANT & RAMBLE: plus size shopping

    I was scrolling through Facebook, as one does when they’re trying to escape the stresses of the office. I came across this article, which lists 5 challenges plus size shoppers encounter while trying to find clothes that are fashionable, affordable and to their unique style. This article is SPOT. ON. As we all know, this blog is no stranger to my rants about plus size shopping and how it totally blows. I wasn’t going to say anything because 1)¬†Alysse (from Ready to Stare) truly hit every nail dead on the head. And 2) I’m tired of it. I’m tired of complaining. I’m tired of complaining that I’m complaining. Tired, tired,…

    academy awards 2015 fashion favorites! and my 100th post!

    I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves, but I feel like I have to say that this year was an excellent year for Oscar fashions. In no particular order (except Jennifer Lopez wins first prize, in my book) here are my favorite fashions from the 2015 Oscars. I actually liked her red carpet dress too. Those gloves were such a shame.       Had to add my girl, Mindy Kaling. She’s at the Vanity Fair Oscar party so it totally counts. Also, I just realized that this is my 100th post! I am accepting any and all congratulatory gifts and monetary donations. As I will for all…

    fashion hits- grammys 2015

    The Grammys were on last night and for some reason I haven’t seen any posts on the night’s fashions. Never fear! That’s what I’m here for. I don’t know if this will be a best/worst kind of thing, but as usual, since almost no forethought went into this post, I’m just going to throw it all out there and see where it lands. (and by “no forethought” i mean i just want to look at pretty dresses and handsome men in tuxedos, not rank them in order of any kind of greatness.) I’m not a fan of the color black in clothing. Sure, every woman needs her go – to…

    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.

    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…

    spread the word – #plussizeplease

    We’re going through a huge computer system overhaul at work, thanks Microsoft, and because there is an overwhelming fear of losing every last document on our computers, huge external hard drives were purchased – like 3 terabyte huge, yet I can’t get a raise. The computers are supposed to be backed up weekly and guess who was nominated to do these back ups. If you guess anyone but me, you’d be deeply disappointed. The only good thing is that when it comes to computers, the people upstairs are not so well versed and don’t know how to do this or long this should take. My boss wasn’t in the other…
