Trying to find out why I'm here....

For a long time now I've been wondering "What the hell am I supposed to do with my life?" and I've been waiting for a sign either ephemeral or literal and alas no sign has showed up. I've planned on being everything from an attorney to a writer to a computer programmer. All of these things are easily accomplished with enough time and dedication like anything else. My problem is that I'm good at a lot of things, expert at none.

I once read "don't do what you love, do what obsesses you." Which at first I didn't understand but now I think I do. I think it means whatever you spend hours Pinning about, blogging about, reading about, do something like that, something that brings out both joy and your inner nerd. For me that has always been clothes, to me clothes, fashion, makeup hair, bring out everything from your inner sex goddess, to your "i'm gonna take over the world!" business suit. Until now I've only been brave enough to read and write and fawn over those in the industry thinking I wasn't talented or worthy enough to be a part of that world.

It wasn't until recently that I'm finally getting up the guts to work on a project I've been thinking about for ages. I won't say anything until all the details are in order but rest assured it's coming and it will be FABULOUS!

TTFN my lovlies and I will be back next week with a grand announcement!

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…

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…
