The Queen Bee and the Bird man (Golly gee wilikers Bird man!)

Have you ever had friends so awesome they come to your rescue and invite you out for frosties too? I do and here's why my Queen Bee and Bird man are the most amazing people you could ever find. Queenie is someone who takes charges of any situation, you know that when she walks in you better listen up, but this isn't based on hubris or arrogance, she just knows what she's doing and isn't afraid to be who she is (Freaking Awesome!) she's someone who is a fierce friend and even though we lost touch for a long time (my fault) when we found each other again it's like we'd never missed a day, she's always been there through thick and thin and she's someone who has taught me the true meaning of friendship, being someone who will come through when it matters most, she's tried her damndest to make me a neater, more fashionable person as well unfortunately those lessons are being much more slowly absorbed but I have a feeling she's not giving up any time soon.

The Bird man I have know not quite as long, but he just keeps revealing himself to be a cooler and cooler person. He just has what I like to call the likability factor, there's just too many good traits to list, but I'll try, funny, intuitive, sassy, caring and my personal favorite witty and sarcastic. What's more, he's young, talented and has the world at his feet and has no idea! When I was younger (I'm not that old) I worried about what the future would hold, that I would not reach my goals on the dates I had set for their completion, but low and behold those days have come and gone and some things did not get done, but the world kept turning and disaster was not emanate, in fact I think I have learned more from my failures, flops and fu** ups than I ever could have from my success stories.

Someone once said "The art of writing lies in the application of the ass to the seat." It's hilarious how people in this field continuously yearn to write, it's literally bursting to get out of them, but we stop ourselves in the fear that what we create will not be enough, it will be lacking. We dream so big, that we fear we'll never get there. There is one thing I have learned about writing, when you write for yourself, when you make it an extension of your most precious thoughts, your deepest desires and your darkest fears people stand with you and you suddenly realize how connected we all are, you realize that the big dream you longed for has slowly taken shape around you, quietly, unobtrusively steady and one day you look up and you've done it, Golly Gee Wilikers Bird man, you'll do it, I know you will.

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…
