Do you know OrangeBear? I found it on YesStyle a while ago but never bought anything. I think I will soon. They carry plus sizes bigger that also go well beyond my size. I think I'll order one size up for my first order, just to be safe. It's not like I don't have a sewing machine to make adjustments.
Take this 2-fer for example. Good luck trying to find this in my size locally. It just oozes "comfy" all over the place, too. I am on a shopping break for the next month maybe (personal goal of self-budgeting). I may not be splurging anytime soon, but I'll be getting this top sooner than later. Now that I know my dress code at work is stupid, I'll be dressing more casually.
(Seriously. You can't wear flip flops, but you can wear sweat pants/shirts. According to the "non-slip soles" for footwear, I could rock slippers to work if I wanted. What sense does that make?)
Anyway, I want that top and many others. The end. Now, eye candy:

Note to all my fellow big gals: Just because they make it in your size doesn't mean it's flattering and you should wear it. DRESS FOR YOUR SHAPE!

I saw this on NANCAKES's blog so I stole it. Yep. Taggin myself here, people.
1. When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
Nope. She doesn't wear make up. I used to use my aunt's red lipstick though.
2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?
Probably 11 and I remember getting smacked for wearing it outside the house. (I forgot to wipe it off before I got home)
3. Pink or red lipstick?
Mauve. I guess that's more of a pinky-brown and it's my kinda nude.
4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?
Mac Cremesheen in Looks Like Sin.
5. And the cheapest?
My NYX Round Lipsticks which were <$2.
6. What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?
I've put it on like all over my mouth and smeared it a la mental patient for a photo.
7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?

Today I thought about it. I speak a little bit of a few languages but am only fluent in English. This sucks. I need to stop getting bored. I'm currently learning Korean because it's VERY useful where I live. Before that, I took 2 semesters of Japanese in college, 2 years or Spanish in high school, and learned enough German to understand what all the industrial and EBM songs I love are about. I'm now finding it would be helpful to learn a little Finnish because Google can only translate but so well. I just don't have the brain space left right now! Korean is really taking it's toll on my noggin. I'll keep at it though. Fighting! That's the phrase that pays apparently.

So I started doing my own gels a while ago and tend to start simple (like in the picture) and maybe add designs with stickers, rhinestones, and konad plates a few days later. Why? Because I have this really, really bad habit of doing my nails around midnight. But no biggy. I like taking a little more time to think of which design to use.
For reference, this nail color is Harmony Gelish UV Soak-off polish in "Exhale" and I bought it from Amazon for like $11. As for the lipgloss, I can't remember the shade but it was cheap N.Y.C. brand and I think it came from Target. There are only a few shades so this is easy to pick if you want it. It's really shiny and sticky though. I was just desperate for a nude gloss. The lip plumping effects aren't noticable on me. I have full lips but I buy plumpers because the masochist in me loves the tingling/burning sensation. Yeah, I'm weird.
It sucks that I've been unable to type with long nails. They just get in the way. So I keep them short. No biggy to me, but it's oh-so-ungyaru. LOL like I give a fart. Anyway, just thought I'd share.

I'm pretty sure these earrings wanna be in my ears. They're SO me. I can't stress enough how much I LOVE "ethnic" jewelry and natural materials. Those little wooden beads are so cute! I never wear hoops because they're so dull, but these have pizazz. Yep. I said it. PIZAZZ. And the bracelet is simple, chic, and Earth Mama classy. The ring is very, very simple. I think that's what makes it the perfect finisher. I shall be purchasing them now.

Why is Payless torturing me with BOGO 1/2 off?!
I think I've made it very clear that I have
big huge feet. Well my pickins are slim and my sources are typically Lane Bryant, Payless, Torrid and DomShoes.com. I think I need to get these shoes. I feel like I'd be depriving myself of something awesome. I love retro shoes, but they're never in my size (12, 12W depending on brand). The last pair (denim and brown) are like $50 and I doubt I'd find anything like that for such a low price ever again. WANT.
