I had some issues creating a link for you fabulous readers to subscribe to the blog. But thanks to some late hours (and a caffeinated beverage), you now have two options for subscribing. The first is to view my blog using a feed reader like Google Reader, My Yahoo, or Bloglines. The second is to sign up for email updates. You’ll get a sweet little message from my blog every time I have something to say. Of course, if you can’t decide, do both.
I enjoyed shopping this afternoon with my good friend Sharon. Who knew that when we entered Forever 21 we would embark on such a fulfilling fashion discovery? What did we discover, you ask? Skinny jeans. Alright, alright, I know this look became popular (again) several seasons ago. However, I always thought that the adjective in their name ruled me out by default…an unfortunate technicality that would have me in bondage to the trouser jean indefinitely. But alas! They flatter the curves and tame the chubby knee syndrome for which I haven’t YET been professionally diagnosed. I am thrilled. Apparently.
I suppose the moral of this adventure is, “don’t knock it until you try it”. “If the jeans fit, wear them” would work nicely too.
A few more finds from today…
It’s a brand new week, so I challenge you to try something that you’ve always ruled out before. Maybe it’s a new radio station for the drive to work. Or the spicy sauce on your food at lunch (be careful with that one).
I would love for you to challenge me to try something new too! Think of a fun and interesting thing for me to do, eat, experience, etc. and comment below. I will choose my favorite (so be creative), take photos of myself trying it, and blog about it this week. The winner gets $20 instant gift certificate for my etsy shop. Or you can apply that to custom artwork if you’d like.
Contest ends Tuesday morning at 9 am (EST). Good luck! This should be fun.
