The Return of Mr. Big

Love is a terrifying ordeal, and someone very wise once told me we do things for two reasons, fear and love. Love defies all laws of the universe, it is faster than light, it outlives both its source and its destination and leaves a lasting impression for future observers, something no other force in our known universe can do. We open our selves up to rejection, to devastation and we must ask ourselves why? It is not in our nature to be single, we group together out of necessity and throughout the ages we've developed very intricate mating rituals in order to determine the best mate. We all look for different things, but I think the one thing so many of us overlook, is that sometimes things just work. You don't know why, it may even drive you crazy not to know why but sometimes, and this is one of those times, things just are. Being in love is a constant state of vulnerability, it requires you to trust another human being with your heart, to know that they won't reject the offering you give them and as terrified as you are, you must realize how equally terrifying it is for them. So many of us don't realize how much influence we hold over our loved ones.

But this is not the ending, this is the start, the very beginning of a journey we started long ago. Mr. Big is not perfect, he knows he's not perfect and neither am I (though pretty damn close ;0) Adventures will ensue, the future is uncertain, but it's all going to be okay  because I know he'll remind me to not panic and I know he'll always have an extra towel. (see the nerdy dictionary on that one, lol)

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…

Plus Size Business Casual- How to do it right!

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…
