Plus Size Appreciation

A long time ago I came across a term that these days would be considered derogatory. It was about what was considered a kink. The term was fatty lover and indicated men who prefer their women well padded.

We have come a long way since then but still not far enough. Those of us with curvaceous figures are still spoken of in whispers though slowly we are becoming more mainstream as some of our members have become models and movie stars.


This image back in 2015 sparked a lot of negative comments, I wonder if it would spark as many this year. Somehow I don't think so.

In 2018 we had come a long way from there as this picture shows:


This blog talks a lot about positive body image. The picture above is only one of many on the internet celebrating body love.

And this year we actually had a beauty pageant!

So the next time someone says something to you about your size just look them in the eye and smile! Cause even if they don't know it you know you are beautiful! And there are a lot of online retailers who specialize in beautiful clothing for the bigger woman.

Two of my favourite are Rosegal and Rosewholesale. Recently a third as joined this list they are called Rotita who carries some of the most beautiful clothes for plus-sized women I have ever seen like this little beauty:

Love your body, love yourself!

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

National Pizza Day

I am celebrating today! Several things actually!

1) I like Pizza & I have a perfect reason to make one. It's National Pizza Day! Its going to be a simple one though made with an everything bagel with pizza sauce, pepperoni & cheese. I might even add some onions and peppers for a filling supper.

2) Getting the pantry of my dreams. The one I bought is similar to a cupboard that sat in the house of one of my Uncles for as long as I could remember. It was a bit more delicate than the one I bought though. It looked a little like this one.

3) The Professor as confirmed that we will be going to Ottawa for Valentines, I am over the moon! It won't be the week I wanted but it is going to be four days & three nights.

It means that I can explore the Byward district a bit more than I did a few years ago. Happy Dance!
