Style Inspiration: Polyvore

Oh, my creative and fashionable friends - have you found yourself over at Polyvore yet? 

If you haven't, you need to head on over. But read my post first, okay?

The great news is that you don't have to actually BUY the clothes you find on Polyvore. You can create boards of things you covet. Like the bracelet below in my Casual Style board. That's over $1K. Dream on, I know, but it's so pretty.

Anyway, I used to be addicted to the Polyvore creations that my friend Elisa over at Globetrotting in Heels pulled together. I still am, I'm just a missing in action bloggy friend. But head on over there, she's got an outfit of the week up right now you're going to love. 

And so do I. In fact, I have a few of them.

Amazing Reads: Books you need to read this fall

You know by now I can't stop reading. 

This year hasn't been quite as successful for me as other years have been - I've just lost my reading mojo, or something. 

I always set that read one hundred books goal and this year it was so far-fetched that next year I might stick with fifty. 

In the meantime, I do have a good handful of books I'm reading, thinking about reading or absolutely want to read this fall. So stay with me and I'll fill you in!

Born Just Right: Support Camp No Limits

I had the luck of meeting Jen Lee Reeves last year at a blogging bootcamp in Disney World. We didn't have the chance to speak all that much, but crossed paths a few times and probably saw one another more outside the conference than during.

I had heard of her, was following her on social media, and thought - oooh - she knows her stuff. And then I got to know her, and she turned out to be sweet and funny and someone I could actually like. And I love that!

When Jen put out a call for some assistance in spreading the word about a fundraiser she's supporting I knew that helping out would be easy. A post for a friend? Supporting an incredible organization? Absolutely.

Blog Conference Fashionista

You guys, you know I'm not a fashion blogger, and that's fine. But I seriously have to tell you that I took pictures of myself at Type-A Parent Conference a few weeks ago in Atlanta and I totally felt like I was wearing the perfect thing



I totally was.

I feel a little weird posting an entire post with pictures of myself, but I know people do it all the time.

And I think for the plus-sized girls like me it might be a nice thing to see, too.

So ... here you have it ...
