Okay, all the style illustrations are now up on pinterest

This is it.  No more posting style illustrations.  I promise. Today I’ve got Slacker, Bombshell, Sporty Chic and Gamine on pinterest.  They all look really great.  My book, Escape from Ugly Mom Island, is now available on amazon kindle.  The printed copy of my book will be available on amazon this week.  Although currently amazon is playing a cat and mouse game with me and not telling me exactly when it will be available.  I will announce it when they let me…

A Year in Review – Day 30 OMG!  Is it really day 30 already?  Is this year almost over?  Will I wake up in two days without having to take a picture of myself and write about it?  YES.  Since my whole family has been sick for weeks (including me), I really feel like I’ve been crawling to my fabulous finish line.  Thanks for sticking with me through these last few posts.  On days that I’ve had a fever, I’m…

A Year in Review – Day 17 Congrats!  Erin M!  You are the winner of this fabulous dress! I spent soooooo much time reading all your comments and if anyone has any questions about what makes up a basic wardrobe, you must check out the comment section of yesterday’s post.  It’s great and there are so many links!  I had no idea how many fashion blogs are out there, really.  And they’re all so much more professional than mine!  And…

A Year in Review – Day 16 Today’s prize? A Bombshell dress I got from Mod Cloth!  I wore it once during my Bombshell month (out to dinner with friends) and completely forgot to take a picture of myself in it — which is okay because it didn’t really fit me correctly.  The website said that the dress runs small so buy a size up, so I bought a large — which in fact, was too large.  I’m guessing in…

A Year in Review – Day 8 Today’s Prize?  It’s another Bombshell dress!  Here it is on me… And here it is on some people that it looks much better on… I bought it at Banana Republic.  It’s called the Ponte Fit and Flare dress (whatever that means).  It’s a great holiday dress and I love the fact that it has pockets….  It’s a size 6, but don’t let that scare you.  Banana Republic sizes run large.  In Banana Republic…

A Year in Review – Day 5 Congrats!  Cheri!  You are the winner of this Bombshell dress! I hope you wear it this year while watching Elf and delivering cookies and going to the beach on the solstice.  I really loved reading about everyone’s favorite holiday traditions (Is that you Snow Goat?) and I’m definitely going to incorporate some of them into our holiday this year.  I think the more magical and mystical the holidays can be and the less…

Confessions of a Bombshell…

Bombshell – Day 30 I cannot actually believe that my Bombshell month is already over.  Since the start of “My Year of Fabulous”, I have dreaded the possibility of having a Bombshell month and now look at me — on the other side of this dreaded look already. And you know what?  It wasn’t dreaded at all! Bombshell was was fun.  Really fun.  And so liberating!  When you make yourself wear really dressy clothes when no one else around you is…

Bombshell – Day 29 This picture of me in my bombshell-y dress with a Bombshell-y bow in my hair and my Bombshell-y luggage was taken with my iphone. Why? Because during Thanksgiving dinner last night, my son, August, broke my camera.  It’s the camera I bought last year specifically for my blog.  The one I’ve taken all my fashionable (and oh so not fashionable) pictures on and the camera that I’ve grown quite attached to.  I wasn’t so mad about…

Bombshell – Day 28 Happy Thanksgiving!!!! We’re having a blast in gold country!  We’re staying in a haunted hotel!  Panning for gold (as any good Bombshell would do)!  Exploring caverns!  Riding steam trains!  And most importantly — really, really, really dressing up for Thanksgiving dinner!!! This dress doesn’t look tight in the picture, but trust me, it is.  I actually couldn’t put my hand on my hip to pose — I tried to, but had to stop because I was…

Bombshell – Day 26 I’ve gotten to that funky place at the end of every month where I either love or hate with a fiery passion the style I’ve chosen, I’ve said all that I can possibly say about that style and now I just want the month to be over — I’m a well-dressed horse that has just spotted the barn. Take today’s outfit for example — Not bad, but I’ve lost a little zest since my three day…
