Amazingly Good Coffee break

So I'm a big fan of being proactive, going out and getting what you want and taking no prisoners. I've recently applied this attitude to my dating life, with online dating there is no reason not to have a date (ok so you take your chances on quality and possible kidnapping but hey, that's the risk you take) on Saturday night. Besides it's been a very quick and easy way to weed people out, it has not been an uncommon thing for me to have seen someone's profile on a site and then bump into them at a  club or in public somewhere, sometimes it comes in handy because I already know we're not compatible from their either their lack of wordsmithing abilities or their complete disregard for punctuation.

However, today fate as it were (pick your deity here) intervened. I was walking out of the B&N where I grabbed my turbo lunch and I accidently bumped into a tall, dark, handsome stranger. Unfortunately some of my raspberry white mocha did end up on his pants but here's the kicker, he apologized to me! As I was frantically searching my purse for the Tide pen I always carry I was stammering out an apology. "I'm so sorry are you okay? Usually I wait until someone offends me to throw something on them." I was trying to desperately be funny. I looked up and he had the most amazingly blue eyes (a weakness of mine), he smiled what can only be described as mega watt grin and said "No scorched earth, I think I'll live. So will I have to jump in front of your coffee again to talk to you, or maybe I could just call you?" I couldn't help it, I busted up laughing as I handed him a card with my number on it, business cards are so useful like that. So Hot Pants McGee gave me his card and the deed was done.

So you see my lovlies yes, you should be proactive in your search, you should have the highest standards, reach for the stars in your love life, in your career in life in general. If you have that attitude and "act in accord" like the metaphysical people say what and who you are supposed to be doing will just naturally come to you.

Overcoming the "I'm too fat for this."

I have not been posting lately due to many reasons, I'm back in school, I'm working full time again and I've been stuck in a depressive cycle in which I overeat, condemn myself for being a glutton tell myself I'll never amount to anything and then overeat again to make myself feel better. Wow, that sound really crazy when I say it like that. But so many women I know have told me the go through exactly the same thing. We lie awake at night thinking about all the terrible things we did to our bodies that day. I had McDonalds and Taco Bell all in the same day; word to the wise don't do this.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…

Becoming a Fashion Grown up-Chubby Girl In the World Style

Ok, I'll admit it I'm getting old, on Dec. 7th of this year I will be 29! (Silent freak out). What's worse is I'm now a grown up with an early not mid-twenties closet. I feel like I've outgrown the major retailers and need to move on, I'm ready for a more mature fashion relationship but I have fashion issues.
 My key fashion issues:

Short leg, longer torsoBottom heavy in all the wrong placeswhat I call "marshmallow syndrome"- If clothes are too tight, it looks like I'm a sausage, if too loose they not shape at all. So does any of this sound familiar? Here's the advice that has actually worked for me over the years and if I had unlimited funds this is the wardrobe I would create, I' a size 28 which is considered "super sized" so for the sake of argument I'll include designers that stop at size 26 but note them with an asterisk*. Nothing is worse than reading a that one page of Marie Claire dedicated to Plus fashion and realizin…
