I mean for those of you who might be new here, heck at this point I’m new here, I am plus size, fluffy, round, larger, whatever terms you would like to use, I fall into that category when having to shop for clothing items. This year is a little different from others and since I found myself with a bit more time on my hands, I decided I was going to use our pool more often. This was a great idea, not only because of the record heat waves but also because of the extra pounds I found myself putting on due to working from home then being furloughed.

A lifestyle reboot, and thusly a blog reboot. Recently I’ve changed jobs, not due to any maliciousness or ire but because I needed a change; I needed something that my old job wasn’t offering no matter how hard I tried. I worked at this old job for over thirteen years and it was my first job right out of high school so I went through a lot of emotions with it. I lost family members while I worked there, and I gained many friends that I still have today. I developed personally and professionally while I was there and gained social skills that would help me in life.

Let’s take a few moments today to talk about packaging. No, I’m not talking about amazing palette cases, or beautiful lipstick tubes, Anna Sui cosmetics I’m looking at you, I’m talking about those cardboard boxes that cosmetics come in that are meant to be thrown away. I don’t think I’m alone in this thought, but I can’t bring myself to take my foundation out of the box and then plop it in the trash.

I hope I’m not alone in this event, but an example I can give is that recently I purchased the Becca Ultimate Perfection 5 piece kit from QVC and the set came in a large beautiful box with each item individually boxed. Now I brought myself to toss the larger box since it took up so much room, but the smaller boxes I’m finding it harder to part with. Now, don’t get me wrong, I want to keep my makeup looking nice and keep things as clean as possible, but keeping items in a cardboard box, and having to remove them each time I go to use them, kind of takes extra time I don’t have in the morning.

I think this might talk to a deeper level of my psych, but for now I’ll take it as a quirk of mine and something I need to work on parting ways with. What about you? Has there been any packaging you just couldn’t bring yourself to part with?

All of the items mentioned were purchased with my own money, the comments are my own.

I’m Back!!

I know I’ve made this kind of post before, but let me say I am back now and I will be posting regularly again. I wanted to make a side blog for weight loss, but I found that while I did enjoy it I wasn’t passionate enough about it to make it a long-term blog. I might post about it from time to time here, but for now let’s focus on the sparkles and neutrals we all seem to love!

I’ve been dreading our vacation for a little while now. I think the main reason behind that is because it’s not happening how I thought it would. Allow me to explain; the trip itself is coming along nicely. The hotels are paid for, as well as the train rides, tours, and random adventures. The plane tickets were paid for in February and we have all our luggage we need. Why dread the thing I’ve been waiting for all year then? I’m nowhere near where I thought I’d be physically. I had plans that I would be at least 2 or 3 sizes smaller and that I’d be confident in who I am.

Now please don’t think that because I am larger I am not confident, I know my body (I’ve had it for 29 years) and I love all that it can do. I am proud of myself for who I am. What makes me sad is seeing where I’ve been and knowing I could be in a similar place now if I had worked harder.

This was me in 2005. I know I don’t still have those pants, and even if I did I know they wouldn’t fit. I think what makes me sad is that this is sort of how I still see myself, and then when I see what I currently look like it’s heart-breaking.

I remember that I wasn’t afraid to sit in an airline seat during this time, or to share a seat with friends. Now all I can think of is whether or not I’ll have to have an extender, and if I’ll even be able to fit in the seat. This is merely an update of to where my brain is and what I really need to focus on during the next month. I’m going to do my best to avoid fast food and cut back on soda for the next few months. Soon I’ll add more about what I’m taking and hopefully that will get me excited once again!
