This is the theme for the season. Everyone I know has already gone or is about to go to at least one ugly sweater party this month. So how can you rule the party scene without breaking the bank on a sweater that you’ll only wear once? That was the challenge I set to myself. Spend less than $25 and win the ugly sweater contest by a landslide.
Tis the season for tights, winter coats, scarves and mittens. And plaid. Lots of plaid. In lots of colors, looking oh so merry and bright!
Have you ever been to a midnight movie premiere or a fan event where everyone is buzzing on excitement and sugar? You know the fanatics. They are decked out in elaborate costumes and looking like their favorite character. No? Just me then… Ok.
Well, last night was the premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. I, being the superfan that I am, wanted to go dressed in an outfit inspired by the courageous, outspoken, and beautiful Katniss. (I told you – superfan). I didn’t want to go in full costume but I did want to put together a look that did her and the other HG rebels justice.

Oops! Got a little off track there… Admit it though, you totally started to sing along too.
For your full procrastinating pleasure, here’s the video.
Ok, come on. Let’s get back to the topic on hand.
My favorite time of year has arrived and it’s time to break out my absolute favorite article of clothing. The sweater. More specifically, the oversized, insanely cozy, larger than life sweater!
So of course, I had to feature this fashion favorite for my October spotlight…
The week is almost over and that means an end to all the fabulous fashion events. So I am going to bask in all the glitz, glam and charitable goodness while I can.
It’s officially fall now, but I am so not ready to let summer go. These cold and rainy days make me miss the sun and sand a bit more everyday. Unfortunately it is only going to get wetter and in New England it is definitely going to get colder, so how do I beat these seasonal blues?
This was the challenge I posed to myself this week. I need to find a way to transition from summer to fall seamlessly.

Don’t wear white after Labor Day. Horizontal stripes are a no no. You can’t mix metallics and don’t even think about brown and black. Together? No way. Plus size women can’t wear skinny jeans. This one is just ridiculous!
Some rules of fashion are meant to be bent, ignored and altogether broken!

From time to time I contemplate the idea of abandoning my dream of becoming a full time writer. I get all kinds of ideas in my head. I’m just pretending to be a writer, and I’m not really good enough, and that I should simply give up.
A couple years ago, before I started this blog, one of my uncles asked me about my writing. Back then I was uploading stories on Wattpad, and I was having a lot of fun. So I told him that I had talked with a girl from Etiopia, who said that she really enjoyed my stories. So much that she cried.
And, well, he asked me about money. Was I earning enough?
