It’s June! My favorite month of the year! Why? It’s my birthday month! This month I’m exploring the art of asking for help. It’s truly an art to figure out the things you NEED then researching places/people to ask for help. You may get rejected, but at least you tried. This is not about begging, this is about strategic moves to improve your life outcomes. It’s scary, but worth it. Continue reading “Hello June: The Art of Asking for Help”
I’ve been blogging for like 17 million years, so I have about 49,000 posts about Wearing White After Labor Day. So, when I realized I hadn’t worn this CUTE dress from Ashley Stewart, it inspired me to write about the topic again. So, are we or are we NOT wearing white after Labor Day? Let’s discuss.

I know this is a weird title for an Outfit of the Day (#OOTD) post but I thought I’d address some stuff as it pertains to fashion and fatness. A couple of months ago I posted the look I wore for the Nashville Symphony Ball. As always, I post my looks on my instagram and wait for the likes and comments to roll in. Usually, my comments thread is pretty positive. But as the popularity grows, I see new followers and new commentary. On this day, when I posted my symphony story, someone made a snide comment about my fat arms.
Initially, I was a bit shocked. Like I said, I hadn’t received negative comments on my photos. That day was a different day – two girls were having a field day in my comments, talking about my fat arms. I was shocked. Then, I thought, “people are so used to plus-size women covering up!” EVEN in this day of plus-size model Tess Holiday, getting national and international modeling jobs, people still feel ‘some kinda way’ about big women being okay with her big-ness. Truthfully, I used to feel the same way . . .
It’s official, summer is here. As a plus size lady, those words can be a bit nerve-wrecking. Gone are the chilly fall & winter days with their lovely layers and deceptive dress codes. It’s too hot to cover-up but some think you are too fat to show it off. Well, they are wrong! That’s why I decided to start the #SHOWYOURARMS campaign! The #ShowYourArms campaign … Continue reading #ShowYourArms Summer 2017
