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.

Winter is coming...

So my fiance and I are obsessed with Game of Thrones. We love Danny, hate Jofferey and yes I read the f@uking books! So winter is here, I've been snowed in for three days here in Wilsonville,OR with one of the largest snow storms to hit the area since 1996. So in order to keep from getting cabin fever I've decided to share with you lovlies the pieces which I'm currently coveting from Igigi and a new source I found called Navbi (much more expensive, think Nordstroms for plus sizes).  I also wanted to make you aware (as if you didn't know) how awesome some modcloth stuff is. I just purchased the travel day skirt on sale for 14.99, we do love a bargain.

Things drool worthy from Igigi:


Zola Dress $118 I imagine mysels as Reese witherspoon in this dress, cute, quirky and loveable.
garnet dress in black, perfect for office or cocktails. I imagine the model as a Bond girl, with a thigh holster and .22 tucked inside her dress.
Cadence Dress $118.
I think I could take over the wor…

Shout out to local businesses!- Please support local and homegrown plus size friendly business in your area! This is the Portland edition

If you're in Portland Metro area do not miss out on going to two shops one in Northwest called Fat Fancy which has killer vintage and new styles for the plus size retro princesses out there and in the Southeast there is Savvy Plus run by the beautiful and awesome Gaya (I'm not sure if I spelled that right! Someone please correct me if I'm wrong).

Fat Fancy- great for both men and women and the funky little shop is right in the heart of downtown Portland so it's a great destination if you're on the Northwest side of town and wanna do some shopping. My favorite piece I got there is the amazing graphic crop top I use over camis. The girls who work here are amazing at making you feel comfortable and helping you find exactly what you're looking for.

Savvy-Plus has been and will continue to be my first destination when shopping for casual and career wear. I went in yesterday and was so excited about all the new things, the inventory is constantly changing so go in at…

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…
