Amber Riley

July 19, 2010

I’m in a bit of a haze, my hair’s been in a bun, no make up, glasses and no outfits to post. I know it’s just been two or three days but this feels like ages to me. I don’t have much to say but I had to post something, I’m so afraid of losing my passion for blogging sometimes, it’s too important to me.

I’m just going to say thank you for now. Feedback on the t shirt  has been noted. Since it was a sample, we just received a plain pattern, I’m more into an off shoulder, slouchy tee- perfect with a mini or skinny jeans, no?

As for my conversation with my mom,  although misery loves company, it’s almost disheartening that so many of us have experienced similar situations. But that’s why this blog and so many others exist and honestly, people who think like that are narrow minded and old school. If you can’t change them, ignore them. I love my mom and I’ve tried talking to her about stuff like this but it didn’t really work out. I know she loves me and come on, whose moms don’t piss them off sometimes? It’s all good.

I’m so stressed about business and stuff that I decided to try Yoga 101 for Dummies yesterday. Seriously, wow. I felt rejuvenated and amazing after the session but I’m all creaky and sore today hehe.

I’m one of those people who worry too much and struggle to stay optimistic, so maybe that’s why I’ve been a little off lately. We’re all warriors in our everyday lives, no matter how small or mundane are problems are. I am going to put on a dress and make up on tomorrow morning even if it kills me! If I don’t, feel free to unfollow me or something, ok?

Anyway, I’ve been meaning to share my love for Amber Riley, it’s been a while since we’ve had such an awesome plus size role model and she has KILLER style.

Do you guys like her as well?



  • I love her so much! I posted this video last week and I cried like hell when I saw the episode. I know what you mean about being afraid of losing your passion for blogging, I feel it too, but remember this is something you do to make yourself happy, above everything else, and if, for some reason you don't feel like posting anything, just go with it! in time you'll be able to do it again. Sometimes I just read, comment, just to be in touch, but I don't write. Like now, I'm travelling on vacations,so I'm coming to check on my fav blogs for some confort! 🙂

  • And,by the way, I understand what you feel about your family, because I feel that about friends and people I know, and some members of my family too. It sucks,that's why I feel it's so important to come here and feel like we have a safe place to be who we are. It's like having a secret identity, my fat acceptance side that most people in my "real life" don't really know. Being fat sometimes is hard, but it's also hard being obsessed with your weight, scales and what people think of you. Being fat has its downsides, of course, but It's freeing and to love ourselves as we are, right now, it's the best feeling ever, even if we don't feel like that all the time. I listen to comments that are really triggering everyday,but I'm learning to deal with it. Just remember:We are here for you, doll! 🙂

  • she's amazing!

  • For all my childhood and most of my teenage years I thought my mother hated me for being fat. Otherwise how could she say such hurtful things to her own daughter? Still she comments my body and it hurts a little, but makes me rather angry. I LOVE my body. I love that other big girls in the world love their bodies too.
    Seriously I never would have thought that other mothers do the same. I am relieved. Thank you so much for sharing!!!!:)

    I LOVE AMBER RILEY!!!! I sarted watching Glee beacuse of her.:)

  • Lu take your time sweetie! Try and relax, yoga is a great way..or even meditation. And yes yes yes, for your slouchy tee, that would be perfect! I love Amber! She is amazing! Take care honey! 🙂


  • I love her! She's so cute and always looks great!!

  • Wow she is amazing
    you are amazing also, I like the way you always bounce back, and you are allowed off days, we cant always be in a high, we need those days to put things into perspective. Wish you loads of luck in your business venture, it can be frustrating but its great when it comes right.
