The Vegan Vendetta and my addiction to pizza

So I've recently started a weight loss program, it went wonderfully for the first three weeks, then life got in the way. Ok so life didn't so much get in the way as much as my love for pepperoni with extra cheese did. I have gained back 2 of the 11 pounds I lost, which I'm kinda bummed out about but here's why this time around is different. Today I ate left over pizza and didn't go to the gym, normally this would induce horrible guilt ridden feelings in me, driving me to seek comfort in chocolate and old Sex and the City episodes. (I'm a Carrie btw, in case you were wondering) but today, instead of moping around, feeling sorry for myself and eating myself into an early grave, I came home had a sensible dinner with my folks and we read from that "Eat to Live" book on the Nook I got my mom for Christmas. I think the trick to success this time around is to not have that all or nothing attitude, just because I didn't feel like going to work out doesn't mean all the other stuff goes out the window it sounds simple but we all know those feelings, unless you're a genetically gifted person aka freak of nature; you know what it's like to diet and exercise to lose weight.

So many times I have tried to loose weight and failed, I've done every pill, fad diet, and dangerous thing you can think of and then some. It's strange to think that when I was dating a toxic, mean spirited person who always told me to lose weight, I ended up in inevitably gaining more! Now that I'm in supportive, healthy and loving relationship, I don't feel the pressure to lose weight but it just seems to happen. My parents started a semi-vegan diet and my mom has cut her dialysis time by 30%, being surrounded by people who have the same goals you do is more than helpful.  I'm no where near bikini ready yet, but I know in a few months I'll be well on my way to being healthy. Here's to every other chubby girl in the world, past, present and future, remember you make your own paths in this world, it's up to you to decide what you're made of.

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…

Hot Holiday Outfits from Turkey Day to the NYC Ball drop

So I am on the hunt for occasion appropriate holiday outfits here's what I've found so far:

Are you meeting your boyfriends parents for the first time this Thanksgiving? Keep young, classy and sophisticated in a belted tunic
Pair with these ankle length pants, remove the belt though and  Don't forget to tone down the accessories, if you're going to wear hair down no need for earrings, instead do a bold lipstick to match the belt, if you're wearing your hair up or you have a shorter style go with a more neutral lip and do diamond or pear studs, timeless.
