Happy Boobs

Bra Conversion Chart

Two days ago we went to the Sing-Along version of Frozen, because we still have money left in our retirement account and haven’t yet fulfilled our apparent moral obligation to continuously bolster the box office success of this cartoon. I had just finished the reprise of For The First Time in Forever, I as Elsa […]

Snowed In With Nothing But Coconut Love

Coconut Oil Hair Results

We’ve basically been stuck in our house since January 1st, and aside from the uncontrollable sobbing and eye twitching, it’s been amazing. I’m like Sissy Spacek in Blast From The Past. There’s been constant rainbow looming, online shopping, minor home renovations, and it’s also cleared the way for  a couple “me” projects. Bought a new […]

The Muse Project

Lucille Ball

When you are plus size and have self esteem issues, it’s not uncommon to hate January 1st. Once I eventually got past the dread of imminent resolution failure and looming hyper-inadequacy, I tabled New Years as nothing more than the passing of a calendar year. No more resolutions. No more unreachable standards. No more change. […]

Outfit of the Day: Winter Coat

Winter Coat

For a few winter seasons, I’ve been loving the long winter coat from afar. It looked so pretty, but so did my grandmother when she wore it. So, I put it in the pile of trends that would never come to be for me; harem pants, peplum tops, gladiator sandals… But you know what? After […]

Thanksgiving Dressing

Sweater Leggings

Over the river and through the woods… It’s almost Thanksgiving, and if was up to me, the only requirement would be a hair tie and my eating sweats, but in my house, it’s a holiday that requires a touch of decorum, and an underwire bra. I mean, we’re rarely fancy, but I like to eat warm […]

Dream the Impossible Dream. Shorts.

Shorts

There comes a point in your life when you feel comfortable with your thighs rubbing together in hot, public places. I am not at that exit yet. I’m on the exit ramp, off to the side, where the truckers park to sleep. I’m not talking about mentally comfortable. In fact, after 20 hours in a […]

Halloween 2013

Daria

La la laaaa la la.  We didn’t have our big Halloween bash this year. I’ve been injured and in a foul mood about it, plus we’re leaving for Florida tomorrow, so things just got a little too busy to properly plan a soiree. Unfortunately, that also means that I didn’t have anywhere to don a […]

If These Spanx Could Talk

Brittany in Spanx

We spent last weekend at a wedding for one of Andy’s college friends, and it was one of those situations where he was in the wedding, but I was not, and that’s fine. Seriously. The less I need longline strapless bras in my life, the better. They always start off okay, but by hour three, […]
