K. : one girl, seriously addicted

Just coming up on 4am, this would be the perfect time for my brain to shut up so that I can get some sleep…

I think sleep has become a lost cause tonight.

Just because I felt particularly pretty today.

I feel like the only things that show up on my Tumblr dashboard are things that are rebloged from other tumblr blogs. There’s nothing original anymore. I need new blogs to follow.

How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.
Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.
So here’s how to use it:
1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:
“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”
2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.
3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.
4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.
5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!

Have you ever just felt like…

Typing.

Seriously, I’m in the mood right now to just have my fingers make contact with a keyboard. I don’t particularly care what I write about, I just need to press the keys on my keyboard. That’s it. I get this craving to do this every now and again, it usually results in my rambling about nothing, like right now. That’s all I’m doing. Rambling just so that my fingers can push down a key on the keyboard and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I don’t understand why I get like this, I have no real message to convey but I just need to type. Type, type, type. That’s it, it’s all I want to do. There’s something about the action that satisfies this deep need inside me. My fingers feeling for just the right key before I apply the perfect amount of pressure to create a message on the the screen. Keeping my fingers on the “F” and the “J” to make sure I stay centered on the keyboard so that way I don’t have to look at the keyboard too much and can focus on the screen. I also find it ironic that I type far more with my left hand than my right one, like it dominates the keyboard. I use my right hand for the shift, but my left hand will often go outside it’s “designated” range to type up a message.

Okay, I feel a little bit better after typing this out. It’s an odd thing to crave, but it can make me feel so good just typing. Maybe I’m really supposed to be a writer.

Thanks for reading!

All of my friends are either having kids, getting dogs or buying houses. I’m just sitting here hoping that I pass my last class so I can finally get my degree.

With my final exams over and no job in sight, I finally have time to write. In the last three days, I’ve written over 4000 words (and counting) on a novel that I started for NaNoWriMo but didn’t have a chance to finish because of school. 

This is the happiest I’ve been with my work in a long time and all I want to do is share it, but I have no one to share it with.
