Chubby Girl In the World Gets Engaged!!!

After two years of being the most awesome boyfriend ever Terick Hines proposed to Stefanie Gomez on December 25, 2012. This is the story and hilarity of how it happened.

On Christmas eve Terick aka "Big" walked into our fabulously messy apartment ( thanks to the shin dig I three the night before) with a very large gift box. "What is that?" I exclaimed. "It's a present." was all he said. So I kept pestering him, actually I attempted to tickle him to death, then he finally said "it's something fuzzy and blue" which stopped me in my tracks "Fuzzy and blue?" last time he'd said that I got earrings from the Shane company, was it earrings again? I decided to shake the box as much as  I could, I smelled it, weighed it my hands no clue.

Christmas morning came, since we'd be waking up at 4am every day to get him to work by 5, we couldn't help getting up early and I got up at 3 that day. I jumped on him said "Merry Chris…

I hate the way this looks..... Why your clothes don't fit.

How many times have we said that in a dressing room looking in a mirror because the "plus-size" clothing line we were trying on just didn't get it, that not all women who are full figured have the same figure! The human body is a never ending conundrum of curves, and some of us have more curves than others. If you're tall and hour glass shaped you need different jeans that someone who is short and pear shaped etc. Designers in school are taught with dummies that have exaggerated heights and impossible waist lines. Most plus size patterns are merely increases in proportions, not a whole different fit which is what's needed. This is the problem I and many other people throughout the plus size world have, surely in this day in age there must be a solution to it.

My solution: I'm trying to find a new or established designer who can use consumer input to manufacture a line of clothes that actually fits, not just that the buttons close but that you can look in the…

Plus Size Holiday Fashion From Christmas to New Years and everything in between

The Holidays are an awesome opportunity to get together with family and friends and use the cold nights to cozy up to your favorite person. I've searched high and low to look for pieces that you can use season after season and year after year because who isn't trying to maximize closet space as well as dollars these days right? You'll notice the amazing pieces by Tadashi Shoji for Bloomingdales, these are definitely investment pieces and things I'm currently craving but Shoji's clothes stand the test of time both in seasonality and style so you can count on value.

I've also included some amazingly good pieces from Forever21 like the contrast pipping notched blazer which frankly looks like a Brooks Brother piece designed for women. The metallic jacket is perfect for new years or a night out any day of the year. Check back next week for a look at my favorite new accessories of the season and last minute gift ideas!
Until then enjoy the pictorial fashion flavor!

28, Fabulous, Financially Savvy and working on getting fit.

Yesterday I turned 28.

The Waldorf school of thought says that 28 is the end of childhood, that this is when we know what we are going to settle down and know what our careers, our family situations and life long plans will be, if this is the case I'm entirely behind the times! I have a few of these things figured out but how many children, if I'll get married or emulate Goldie Hahn who knows? I know that I want to get fit this year as so many of you know I've been working hard on that and slowly recovering from an injury (please don't workout so hard you hurt your back, it sucks trust me.) I know that I want to learn more about finances, investments and other grown up people stuff.

But the things I have no clue about? I have no idea if I want children, I think like most people I swing between "oh that's so cute" and "hell no, take this demon spawn back" when your friend hands you their kid and then they promptly vomit on you. I know this is a …

Being Teanacious-A cautionary tale

I truly believe that in life we achieve that which we are willing to work for, those things which everyone tells us to stop dreaming or "get your head out of the clouds" those things which we dream but are often times not brave enough to jump over that chasm of self- doubt, sometimes that jump lands us on our face.

My obsession with being everything that I am currently not, fit, educated, sophisticated and thin was getting a little scary, I was beginning to contemplate things that were pretty scary like taking laxatives, I thought "Just for a few days, it can't be that bad right?" Just for the record yes, it is that bad. Tenacity though usually a good trait was not serving my best interest at this point, it was like I knew that the tried and true way was the best but it just didn't matter because I wanted to be someone else so incredibly bad, nothing else mattered.

Luckily (sort of) I injured my back at the gym during a Pinterest inspired cross-fit moment, …
