Ain't that the truth?!

Work mom retires

I try not to talk about work too much here on the blog but sometimes I can’t help it since it’s my “secret life” away from this blog.  I’m a corporate lady by day and blogger by night.  Today my work mom retires.  I’m most likely going to cry when I have to see her walk out of this building one last time but I know it’s for the best.  I mean, she gets to travel, relax, and whatever else she’s going to do now.  I’m sad for my own selfish reasons.  She was my go to.  She was like my mom but at work.  We used to have lunch every so often and visit each other’s cubicles in the morning.  I mean we’ve known each other for almost 3 years.  I guess this just means that I’m going to have to come visit her down the shore and bug her there hehe.  Mama, if you’re reading this I wish you all the best and you will definitely be missed here in the office.


Tomorrow I get my hair done.  I’m starting to feel like Helena from Orphan Black with my roots.  Now I must confess, I try to take outfit photos when I don’t have any roots because ladies and gents it’s quite horrifying haha.  I’m not too sure what I’m going to do about my hair to be honest.  I’m kind of getting bored and I feel like it would make so much more sense to go back to dark hair but at the same time I want to have pink in it before I leave for Poland in August.  I can’t have crazy colors in the office (obviously) so I wanted to put pink in my hair the night before I left for Poland because by the time I’d be back it would be faded.  Decisions are the worst for a Libra.

Lucky FABB

I'm so sad.  Yesterday I found out Lucky FABB has been postponed.  So, there will be no post or social media coverage of the event.

Cystic fibrosis awareness month

It’s CF awareness month.  For those of you who don’t know what that is, the exact definition is:  a hereditary disorder affecting the exocrine glands. It causes the production of abnormally thick mucus, leading to the blockage of the pancreatic ducts, intestines, and bronchi and often resulting in respiratory infection (as per google).  The reason why I bring this is up is because one of my friends who I’ve known for well over 10 years has Cystic Fibrosis.  I wrote about her here.  Please take a moment to read it.  I’m actually working on getting an update post for everyone to see how she’s doing.

Friday Positivity today instead of funnies

I just wanted to say thank you.  A gigantor thank you to those of you who read my post on Wednesday.  I cannot believe the amount of people who commented with such positivity.  If you don’t have time to read the post here, I’ll summarize.  Pretty much I took outfit photos and once I saw the one set of pictures I was a little upset.  I had rolls in the picture.  It was the way that I posed, but still, this didn’t happen the last time I wore the dress.  So I edited it, however, I didn’t edit all of it.  My camera makes me look really short and wide which I’m definitely not, I’m 5’9 and average size.  I decided to keep the roll even if it wasn’t “cute.”  Now, why did I keep it if I’m posting these pictures on the internet?  The answer is simply because it’s the real me.  I don’t usually have rolls, but the way I stood and the way the dress cut off (since I gained a few pounds) it formed into a roll.  Then I started to think about all the issues that I had growing up with my body and the insecurities I had.  So I wrote a post about the first time I was told I was big girl, curvy and had thunder thighs.  I had such a great response as I was the comments in emails that blogger sends to me I just kept smiling.  It was such a positive experience so I just wanted to say thank you to everyone.

  1. I love that quote & the picture with it is gorgeous.

  2. Awww I can definitely relate to having a work mom. It's so hard to see someone leave after you've known them for so long! And you're leaving for Poland?! I'm so jealous of everyone's travels! :)

  3. Can't wait to see the final hair do! What did you end up doing? Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
