    “I’m singin’ in the rain…” Extra Wide Rain Boots c/o Jileon It’s already established that I LOVE boots. The only wide calf style I hadn’t ever been able to nail down was wellies – rain boots. Now I can end my hunt for them as I love these wide calf rain boots from Jileon. They have both wide (up to 18″) and extra wide calf (up to 21″) options and several fun styles. I actually think the extra wide calf might go a little larger than that as the sides are adjustable, however the structure of the rubber might look a little different if…

  • Tall Wide Calf Boots (++ good for walking!)

    I'm searching for some real world reviews of fat girl boots. As life long fatty, I am astonished and pleased at the amount of options we have this season, but I'm more than a little overwhelmed. I'm hoping that y'all have some insights you can toss my way.I'm looking for a pair of tall (ideally above the knee, but I'm open), black, versatile boots that I can wear all winter, but particularly during a Christmas vacation I'm taking to Paris. When I imagine these boots in my head, they are sleek and stylish enough that they can be dressed up or dressed down. Just…

    Particularly anyone size 24+, did you fit into the seat, seatbelts? I haven't flown in 4 years so I'm a little nervousAlso, my friend booked the tickets and it was one of those specials, so I'm assuming it's pick your own seat. Is it checkin 24hrs ahead online, or early checkin in person that gets to board first?

  • Just Released: New Blogging U. Ebooks

    10 Nov 2014 | 8:00 am
    Our recent Writing 101 and Writing 201 Blogging U. courses were a huge success — so we thought you should be able to enjoy them even if your schedule didn’t allow you to take them in real time. We’re happy to announce that both courses are now offered as free ebooks, available for download in .pdf, .mobi (Kindle), and .epub (iBooks) formats. While conceived with nonfiction writers in mind, fiction writers (we know you’re out there, NaNoWriMo participants!) could find both courses just as useful. Which ebook should you choose?

  • Emoji Everywhere 🎃

    Emoji? What are they? “Emoji” is a Japanese term meaning “picture character.” It’s a standard for showing smileys and other little symbols inside text. But unlike traditional smileys that are made up of a sequence of letters like , every emoji has its own letter. Emoji blossomed on smartphones, where quickly picking out an emoji is often faster than typing out a long sentence. Today we’re rolling out hundreds and hundreds of emoji across WordPress.com — 872 to be exact. Do they look familiar? That’s because Twitter has graciously decided to open-source their entire set,…

    As a psychologist, I'm quick to point out all-or-nothing thinking - the kind of thought pattern that polarizes things into categories of good and bad or, really, any two camps - without leaving room for the middle ground.So, it may come as a surprise to hear me say that I think professionals and products and plans are either recovery-oriented or not - but I do.If a therapist is advertising her treatment program, designed to curb overeating, as a tool for weight-loss, I don't see her as recovery-oriented. Part of the reason that people overeat is due to the diet mentality. If a yoga instructor…

    My article appeared originally on Recovery Brands' Pro Corner site.The statistics are staggering; millions of Americans don’t get enough exercise. In the early part of my career, as a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I focused on this end of the spectrum – helping people to incorporate exercise into their lives and adhere to regular exercise programs. But, as I trained to be a clinical psychologist, I saw more and more of other end of the exercise spectrum. On this other side sit those who have a compulsive relationship to exercise; that exercise despite pain…
  • You Ate It - Now Move on with Your Life!

    Just in time for Halloween, some frightening posts appeared on my Facebook feed. Titled, "You ate it. . . Now negate it!" the posts featured pictures of popular Halloween candies, alongside their calorie contents and the amount of exercise required to burn them off. That mini Snickers that sang to you from your leftover stash? That'll be 50 burpees. Similar charts popped up on the websites of fitness and nutrition professionals, in newspapers and on newscasts, and, lest you think these warnings are targeted only at women, in a popular men's magazine.In addition to the fact that nutrition…

    (photo via JezebelThis week, Walmart landed itself in the latest controversy involving bodies and advertising. As Jezebel fist reported, the megastore's online catalog featured a section of Halloween apparel called, "Fat Girl Costumes." Jezebel speculated the heading may have been a web developer joke that eluded final editing.As a joke, this heading is offensive. But, let's look at the larger picture. To start, I commend Walmart for featuring plus-size costumes. Not every retailer offers size-inclusive styles. And the offensive nature of the language itself is only a product of the…

    Oh holidays! They are one big reason to celebrate and be with people you love. Even though I’m going through this glitch in my life right now, you better believe I’m going to go to some holiday functions. Heck, maybe I’ll even throw a party! The problem with holiday parties is that you sometimes see the same people at them. This makes wearing the same dress twice a little bit risky. In looking at IGIGI’s Luxe Elegance collection, they had some pretty cocktail dresses, but these separates caught my eye. Kyle Top c/o IGIGI Mira Maxi Ponte Skirt c/o IGIGI Patent…

    How do you say goodbye to someone you never thought you could live without? Someone that you don’t want to go? I’ve been with him since the week after I turned 20. We just worked immediately. It was easy, built on mutual respect, and there were never any doubts that we were meant to be together forever. At least on my part. Experiencing loss is never easy. I’ve experienced it with losing my mom, but this kind of loss is different: more painful in some ways, and easier in others. There isn’t mortal finality like with death, but there is the loss of what you thought…

    Fall is probably my favorite fashion time of year because you can layer things without being too hot or too cold, plus – boots! I loved the houndstooth print mixed with neutral colors in this dress from Karen Kane, borrowed from Gwynnie Bee. I loved it so much that I purchased the dress using Gwynnie Bee’s Try Then Buy program. Basically, if you have a garment out from them that you love and want to keep, you can purchase it at a discount. I have worn this dress twice this week because it’s so comfortable and perfect for the weather. Learn more about Gwynnie Bee (where I get…
