OOTD: Frugal Formal

I don't often have the opportunity to attend formal events but I absolutely love to get dressed up, so I was super stoked when my husband received an invitation to a fancy work dinner! My first thought, in all honesty, was "yum free filet Mignon!" I was so excited about the food that I initially … Continue reading OOTD: Frugal Formal

Beginner Body-Positive Boudoir

I have been wanting to attempt a pin-up style shoot for ages! I've yet to be able to afford professional hair, make-up, stylists, or photographers but I still really wanted to try it, so I decided to DIY my own basic boudoir photo session as a Christmas gift for my husband this year. (Editorial note: … Continue reading Beginner Body-Positive Boudoir

Baby it's cold outside! Winters here in New England can start as early as October, with temperatures plummeting below freezing¬† - and sometimes below zero - through April and occasionally even into May. We've barely begun the second week of December and today the high temperature has been 38 degrees Fahrenheit. (For those of you … Continue reading OOTD: Fair Isle Sweater Weather

#fatshionfreeforall: Raid My Closet!

I. Own. Way. Too. Much. Stuff. OK, that may not actually be true but I feel like I own way too much stuff. Especially in the wardrobe department.

OOTD: Wearing My Food On My Sleeve

There was a time in my life when I would never have worn this shirt, especially in my younger days. I've always been a thick chick, and I've always loved food, but when it comes to eating in public me and food have had a complicated relationship. Being overweight and enjoying food in public is … Continue reading OOTD: Wearing My Food On My Sleeve

#selfiesunday: some skin, no shame

I was getting ready for bed late last night, after both kids and my husband were already asleep, when I caught a glimpse of myself undressing in the bathroom mirror.

OOTD: Boho Chic

I've been wanting to get in on the frilly fluffy tulle train like nobody's bidniz! The only problem I have is that as a chronically ill stay-at-home-mom I don't have many opportunities for going Out out and so I can't justify purchasing what is basically a tutu to wear to go¬† grocery shopping. So I've … Continue reading OOTD: Boho Chic
