Bohemian Summer

I don't have a single summer memory of my childhood that happened indoors. We simply weren't allowed. For years and years, summer meant my parents kicking my little brother and I out of the house to explore, play and entertain ourselves until dark. Sometimes it was amazing, sometimes it sucked. I went into fall with [...]

What I Wore: Summer Boho

Sometimes I feel like I was supposed to have been born an Olsen. Like the 4th fat one, who's super excited for her sisters' successes, but has no interest in Hollywood and instead stayed home to work at a bank or something. The boho gene is strong in me. I have fun dressing up in girly [...]

Playing Dress Up: Wide Calf Boots

You know, it's funny. The exact reason I got the idea for Curvy Girl Guide two years ago was because I wanted to try tall boots, but I'm plus size,  had no idea how they would actually look, I couldn't find any real life pictures, and all the boots I tried on in stores didn't [...]

Lands’ End & I

As you know, I've been working with Lands' End this year as the Spokesperson for their relaunched Plus Size line. So far, it's been a lot of talking, a lot of traveling, and a lot of learning, for both of us. To date, one of the most amazing aspects of this campaign has been the [...]

My kids measure everything in sleeps. How many sleeps 'til we go to Disney? How many sleeps will you be gone? How many sleeps until Ice Age 10 comes out? Ok, the last one kills me. How many Ice Ages are we going to make, 20th Century Fox, until we finally admit to the kids [...]

The State of Plus

I spent last week in New York City. Since I typically travel based on food, going to New York City is a personal favorite, because I can eat like a king at both in world famous restaurants, as well as on almost every street corner. This last trip was especially exciting, not only because I [...]

So much.

I really haven't talked a ton about our trip to Florida, and that's mostly because over time, vacationing with kids has become a blur of car fights, chain restaurants and overdraft fees. But in summary, we rented a huge house with some good friends and spent the week visiting relatives and having fun.  It was [...]
