Mary Lambert

July 31, 2013

In light of my recent addiction to slam poetry and the spoken word, my friend Patrick recently turned me on to Seattle-based artist, Mary Lambert. Who I unknowingly already adored from her work on the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis album, The Heist (she is the brilliant voice featured in their soul-aching anthem, Same Love). Lambert […]

Jasmine: Roller Derby Beauty

June 19, 2013

Confession… nothing excites me as much as bad ass curvy women, rocking fashion and rocking life. I strive to surround myself with them, working beside them, being inspired by them, sharing their light with anyone I can my hands on. And Jasmine? Well, she’s one addicting curvy role model.

Turning the Camera

June 17, 2013

I sometimes wonder, would we be so quick to poke fun of the people around us, if we were accountable for our actions. On the internet we’re safe behind our shiny screens and keyboards.

May 1, 2013

I am not a curvy girl.  Not even close. Breasts?  Forget it. I don’t wear a bra with 99.9 percent of all articles of clothing. Hips?  Not even mildly interesting unless you count that weird mole I had but it fell off ten years ago. My weight – all 125 pounds of it on my […]

Plump, Heavyset, Chubby…The “Fat” Problem

April 25, 2013

I am 26 years old. Since I can remember I have had self-esteem issues. I don’t want to say that I’ve always struggled with my weight, because I honestly never considered myself fat, just self-conscious in tight clothes. Until recently. Clients at my work commented that I was pregnant…a stranger in the Coach outlet store […]

The Chunky Cheerleader

April 24, 2013

Hey, remember a few months ago when former Green Bay Packers cheerleader Kaitlyn Collins was the victim of insane cyber-bullying, with legions of fans on an unofficial Chicago Bears Facebook Fan Page “liking” a picture of Collins in uniform with the caption, “Like If You Agree The Packers Have The Worse Cheerleaders In The NFL,” […]
