Updates!

I swear I didn’t fall off the face of the Earth, y’all. I am still here. 😀

Most of my days are being spent preparing for Full Figured Fashion Week (are any of you, my lovely readers, attending? Let me know! Maybe we can do lunch!)

But I have a huge announcement of a project I will be starting next month, and I am bringing that to you at the end of the week.

First, I must procure the necessary items…

You’re gonna love it!

Here’s the power song this week:

Fashion post coming Thursday, and Friday: the big reveal!

Updates! And a Public Service Announcement

Hello my lovelies!

So, I didn’t intend on taking a break from writing while taking a break from the day job, but perhaps I needed to unplug just a little bit. I wanted to give y’all a quick update on the birthday things while I wait for my sunscreen to sink in.

PSA: please make sure if you’re using a chemical sunscreen (ahem, that stuff on the back of the bottle you can’t pronounce too well), that you give yourself 15-30 minutes for it to sink in so that it can do its thing. If it’s a mineral sunscreen (titanium dioxide or zinc oxide are the most common) as soon as it’s dry you can head out. Reapply every two hours if you’re sunbathing, swimming, etc. I don’t want you sunburned now that we actually have some sun!

Now that’s out the way: my birthday week’s been awesome! The day of was rained out but I was armed with wine and Netflix, Thursday I slept all day long (GLORIOUS!), and Friday I had dinner with a friend.

No, not THE dinner. It’s coming, though!

Today is gonna be spent buying new makeup brushes and crafting supplies. And I’ll be back in full swing Monday–I got some new subscription boxes and goodies I can’t wait to share with y’all.

And here: have a pic of me with day off makeup on (it’s rare, but it does happen!)

It’s neutral because I had on blue and purple (and I was going lipstick shopping.)

Enjoy the rest of y’alls weekend, and I will see you Monday! 🙂

I Made A Few Changes…

So, I made a few changes around here! Spring is coming, and it’s time to move with it, even if this New York weather isn’t trying to comply.

Sidebar: 55 degree days shifting to 31 degree days: not cool, nature. Not cool.

Ahem.

Please, allow me to show you around! By the way: if I am on anyone’s blogroll, the new URL is evolvingfatshionista.com.

So, all of the links to my favorite stores, blogs, and so still exist. To see them, you’ll go to the header and click the little gear.

Want to see all the info about me, and a more in depth explanation of the new name? Click the little circle with the lines in the header.

Want to follow me on social media? Click the heart in the header for links to all of the social media I participate in (side note: I am now @evolvingfatshionista on Instagram.)

Part of this change came about because I noticed I’m getting new followers on Hyde and Seek, which makes me super happy because, yay, people like it! Then boo, because I don’t write there anymore. I’ve also loved the response I’ve gotten when I’ve done the body positive posts here.

And the other part of it is that I do miss doing the more in depth style of writing I did at Hyde and Seek. I love sharing my nail and makeup looks with all of you, but I also love probing that part of me that wants to express myself with these nails or this eyeshadow, because it is all intertwined.

And so, now my corner of the Internet is Evolution of a Fat Fashionista. You’ll get to see my inside as it relates to my outside and vice versa, and I hope you’ll enjoy the ride. I’m taking the weekend off, and Monday you’ll get a story post.

See you then!
