Month in Review: May

Happy Friday!!

CollagesI cannot believe that it’s been two years since I’ve been laid off from my job yet I still look forward to the weekends.

Where has the time gone? It seems everywhere you turn someone is talking about “living in the moment” and here I am struggling to keep up with my moments because they’re so fleeting.

At any rate it’s been over a year since I started my blog and one of the things I’ve learned is  as I’ve changed, the blog has evolved as well and that’s okay. Lofty desires to do a post a day had to be adjusted to accommodate life and those fleeting moments I mentioned.

So another change that I’m trying out is a “Month in Review” where I’ll provide a summary of the current month’s highlights. I thought this would be a great way to promote my guest bloggers and to give you a quick overview.

I’ve mentioned on a number of occasions how I’m so impressed with the work of other bloggers. Developing friendships with many of you has been the best part of my blogging experience.

One of my friends from the West Coast, Glenda Harrison, is a style guru and was the first blogger I reached out to as I was beginning my journey into this kind of virtual world. Glenda’s unique style and extensive knowledge of fashion weren’t the only reasons why I connected with her. As an accomplished writer, many of Glenda’s posts are very inspirational and thought-provoking.

The Dressing Your Shape Series began in April and the focus was on the curvy woman. In this series I talked a little about each shape and gave some tips on the most appealing clothing for the specific body frame.

In Health & Fitness I shared my concerns with the possibility of dealing with a premature Alzheimer’s Disease diagnosis and a worldwide study being conducted to test the effectiveness of new experimental drug.

I’ve featured guest blogger Mel Scott several times to promote her eyes-free fitness program. This revolutionary exercise program is one that hugely benefits the blind and vision impaired community but can also be used by people who are sighted as well.

Accessories shouldn’t be viewed as simply filler pieces, rather, they are, in themselves, major players in the game of Fashion. One bad move and your accessories can cause you to lose the game. Make the correct play and you’re winning (as Charlie Sheen would say). Continue Reading…

The Exquisite Inverted Triangle – “You have a magnificent, statuesque and very well proportioned figure! Your bust is fuller and shoulders broader than your defined waist, and your waist can be fuller than your narrower hips and longer legs. All these are fabulous assets as many styles look great on you.” ~IGIGI Continue Reading…

The Dazzling Hour Glass – “Your voluminous curves are striking and proportionate! Your clearly defined waistline, harmonious bust and full hips, create a beautiful, feminine curvature.” ~IGIGI Continue Reading…

The Gorgeous Rectangle – “Your exquisite frame has exceptional balance! You have proportionate hips, balanced thighs, shapely legs, slightly fuller arms, and a body frame that’s perfectly in line with all the body parts.” ~IGIGI Continue Reading…

The Alluring Oval – “You have an ample and voluptuous figure reminiscent of ancient goddesses! Your waist is fuller than your bust and hips. Your face, neck, and bust are beautifully proportionate to each other: and your slender lower legs and amazing arms accent your voluptuous assets.” ~IGIGI Continue Reading…

The Captivating Triangle – “You have a gorgeous, goddess-like frame! Your many assets include your bust and upper body being relatively smaller than your hips and defined waistline that creates a distinct curvature accented by your pronounced lower half.” ~IGIGI Continue Reading…

I Can’t Remember What I Forgot – There are days when I wish so badly that I could understand so much more than I know. Take the human body for example, when everything is working as it should, or as normal for me, I don’t think about it at all. But let something be out of whack, like the excruciating neck pain I had yesterday, then I’m immediately thrown into a tizzy. Continue Reading…

Back to Basics – Have you ever started a project with high hopes? Maybe you’ve done something like it before, and you just knew this new endeavor would be successful. Then, before you’ve barely started, things go wrong? Unfortunately, I had just such an experience, and I’d like to tell you about it.  Continue Reading…

While I’m not posting as frequently as in the beginning, it is my goal to continue with my mission of sharing cosmetic, style, and fashion tips with women who are blind or vision impaired while simultaneously challenging the societal viewpoint on the definition of beauty. I also hope to inspire and encourage you to walk in confidence.

Have a super weekend!!
