Into the fight again-getting tipsy as I tip the scale

So tomorrow is pay day and once again I've decided to go back to working out and trying to lose weight. I'm not as excited about it as you would think because I know what's coming weeks of aches, pains, sweat and bad hair days and what seems like immediate facial acne. However.... I was speaking to one of my relatives the other day one of my relatively young relatives and about the only thing they mentioned in the whole conversation was doctors appointments, illnesses and conditions they had going on at the moment. Though felt bad all these things were happening to them I couldn't help but think that every single one was preventable and therefore unnecessary for me to go through.

So tonight I came home came and poured myself a stiff drink and decided on a gym nearby because although I don't need a fancy club, I just won't go work out unless I'm paying for it and 9.95 a month for health didn't seem too bad to me. This move has been long in coming when I went to Lane Bryant the other day, nothing in my "big" size seemed to fit, that's when you know things have gone too far.

So today I'm going through all the clothes that I can't or won't wear and putting them on a Pinterest board called Clothes to Fit into, because frankly I'm too vain to ever go back to wearing boring clothes and let's face it most "plus size" lines only go up to a size 20-22 and I'm currently a size 28/30 *sigh*

I wish I could say I had higher ideals that fitting into the new Marc Jacobs line available up to size 16 or the Michael Kors sheaths at nordstrom up to a size 22, but for right now that is what motivates me, that and being able to kick some serious ass. I'll keep you updated on the workout progress and the new wardrobe inspiration, right now i'm obsessed with shoes, here's some cool clunky favorites you probably still have from the 90's

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.

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.
