A little Self-Love

Why do we insist on comparing ourselves and our bodies to other girls we know?
By no means do I think I'm "fat," but I do think I'm a little curvy. I'm not that 5'8 tall, leggy, blonde with the perfect abs and boobs! I'm petite little me with the large
"humps" and junk in my trunk. And when I act confident, I know I own it.

So let's rejoice in a little self-love!
What I'm lovin' about me today?
My super-thick, extra bouncy, does whatever it wants to, hair!

Cleaning Out My Closet

I’m sure we all have those mornings – you know the ones, where you stand in front of the plethora of clothes that are over flowing out of your closet and mutter to yourself that you have absolutely nothing to wear. Yup, that happened to me this morning. The realization that I came to was kind of a strange one. Could it be that I have TOO MANY clothes? That my vision is so swamped with items that bore me or that never looked that great on me in the first place but were an impulsive buy due to an incredibly good price?

The solution? A clothing swap party. But how does one organize this? Do I book a room somewhere and hope people show up? Do I throw it at home? Has anyone done this before? What are the costs of pulling off something like this? Advice please!

So New

So I think it's time for me to share my wonderful news:
I got a new job :D

If you've read this blog for a while, it was no secret that I was unhappy where I was. It wasn't that I didn't love the company or the people (well, the majority of them), I just wasn't feeling challenged or like I was actually contributing to something. It makes it difficult to go in and do a job everyday when you feel like your work goes unnoticed, (except of course to be criticized).
On the 18th I will be starting a brand new job as the main accountant for a small cosmetics company.
Not only am I looking forward to the new challenge, but I feel like this is a company I could actually CARE about, put 100% into, and who knows? Maybe help it grow into something huge.

I'll keep you posted.

Oh yes, and what people read fashion blogs for:
dress - Costa Blanca (2006); cardigan - Garage (2007); wedges - Chinese Laundry (2010)

About that time, eh Folks?

It's about time for an outfit post I think, don't you?

I've been so lazy in the mornings, barely crawling out of bed a half hour before I have to leave for work, so between getting ready and taking the dog out for her morning walk, outfit photos have fallen to the wayside. I'd take some after work, but who wants to see a sweaty, frizzy photo? It's best to hide the evidence of how awful I look come 5 o'clock!
This was taken over a week ago. I'm slightly ashamed, haha.

Also, has anyone been watching the Glee Project? I'd love to hear your thoughts! I don't have a musical bone in my body, but wouldn't it be amazing to be a part of that group of misfits?
