    A Guide to Gaining Self-Confidence

    My journey to becoming comfortable in my own skin and has been outrageously painful and excruciatingly long. I’ve lived most of my life with underlying insecurities wreaking havoc on my confidence and have really struggled to find myself. I’ll be talking a lot more about this in an upcoming story for Lucy’s Magazine (releasing next month), but what I want to talk about in the meantime is the life changes I’ve undergone that have sincerely made a difference in my self-confidence. The fact of the matter is that no matter how much you work out, not matter how healthy you eat and no matter how well you wash your skin…

    Skincare Update

    As promised, I’m here to give a little skincare update. I’ve been on a rollercoaster ride with my skin lately, and as such have tried so many things in the last year and even more so in the last six months. However, I want to skip to the good stuff that has actually worked for me! A little background: I’ve always struggled with acne. There are pockets in my life where I’ve had clear skin, but those moments were fleeting. I’ve never been able to get it truly under control, although I’m starting to feel like I just didn’t try hard enough. These days, I’m like a dog with a…

    Don’t Be a Troll

    I’m going to start by summarizing for those ass holes out there that can’t read more than a sentence. There’s always going to be trolls raining on your parade. Bring a fucking umbrella. I always forget an umbrella. Why is that? Can you imagine masochistic dick wads falling from the sky literally on your skull with nothing to protect you? Fuck the umbrella, I need a god damn helmet! I’m feeling…irked today. Irritated. Positively provoked. You see, I dared to post a picture on my Instagram holding a breast. It ignited a beacon for the men of the internet to flock and bring forth gifts of unsolicited suggestions. “Why do…

    Fuck Bras

    Do you remember some time ago when I wanted to go a week without a bra and report back? That never really happened because I had nowhere interesting to be that week, so I determined it was better left for another day. Instead of revisiting my experiment, I slowly integrated it into my life overtime. It wasn’t a conscious decision; it just sort of happened. I’ve gained some more weight since that time (hey PCOS, thanks for nothing) which pushed me into a true plus-size. I was teetering before, but now I sit at a solid size 14. For all my plus-size ladies out there, I realize you must be…

    Playing Dress-Up

    I LOVE to play dress up. I can confidently say I’ve been playing dress up now for 30+ years. Achievement unlocked!   However, I have to admit that it’s been many years since I had a proper playtime set-up. I mean, I have a closet and all, but I haven’t had a vanity in my adult life or fun storage. I think the best time for make believe in my life to date was from the ages of maybe 3-6. I can’t remember my exact age, but in this span of years I received the ultimate gift. There’s some space under some built in cabinets in my mother’s dining room.…

    150 Date Night Ideas

    I’m in love. I mean, I’ve been in love for many years now, but I’m just as in love (if not more so) with Dave as I was the first time we kissed. Super cheesy, right? I know it is, but I wouldn’t be saying it if it wasn’t true. Dave and I laugh every day, we love on each other all day long, we’re considerate of one another and we rarely fight. I’m not saying this to rub it in your face. I get told a lot that we’re goals, and people always ask what my secret is. I think the answer to that is fairly complicated. I mean,…

    I just love a good suit.

    I just love a good suit. I got out of the habit of wearing them for a while, but this ASOS suit is giving me life and getting me back in the swing of things. You see, a long time ago, before I was a blogger or ran a magazine or even worked as a photographer, I worked in Human Resources at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Weird, right? It was never a good fit and I was never a good employee (they should have fired me many times over), but it was my career for many years when I was sorting out who I was as a human being.…

    My Skin Sucks: Developing a Beauty Routine

    Guys, I don’t get it. I never have.   I’ve been dealing with acne since the moment I started growing tits, so I’ll say since I was about 10 or 11. It’s been diverse, too. All sorts of variations and locations and in different combinations for different reasons. Just fucking acne all the time. There have been some decent breaks, too. Well, sort of. I remember I went through a phase in my early 20s when I was hitting the tanning bed a lot. My skin felt better then. I’ve later learned that tanner skin just conceals reds better, so maybe not even? My skin was also a lot better…

    Paradigm Shift

    When I decided to pursue my blog full time this year and dropped both my magazine and my fashion photography careers, I got a lot of questions why. It’s fair to ask why I would leave two seemingly successful careers behind and start from scratch, again. The question upset me a lot though because I just didn’t quite know how to answer it. I started working on this blog post a few days ago. I was laying awake at night thinking about the future of my blog, that question, my insecurities, the fashion industry and everything else under the sun. I started to thumb thoughts into a note on my…

    Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

    It’s that time of the year again, which happens to be a big favorite for me because I just LOVE shopping for people. I’m one of those year-round gift planners. I keep a note with ideas for family and friends and generally buy gifts for people months and months before they need them. I actually now have a stock for my best friend and am slowly gifting her from this designated section of my closet. It’s out of control. So, I decided to share some of my favorite gift ideas with all of you, which has turned out to be quite soothing for me to do some imaginary shopping. It’s…
