a blonde new day

.
.
.
.
I. Love. My. New. Hair. (no the first picture is NOT it!)
I'm feeling 24 again! Crazy how just a hair color change can make your hubby treat you like a secret new girlfriend (LOL) or your reflection in the mirror makes you smirk.

<-- YELLOW IS BAD!

I used to dye my hair all the time and was every shade of blonde I could think of, but when I was pregnant with my now 2.5yo, I stopped....and lost my mojo. I ventured into dying again a while back, but that ended up in a disaster (see left). My poor hair. I just wanted some blonde, and next thing you know - I'm YELLOW! :) LMAO




















Well, this time I went back to my old trusty REVLON highlighting kits and the tin foil and toothbrush and am so happy. Baby steps...but I'm getting there again :).



I do a two step process to try to get some blending going on, and here's what I use....



Now it's time to hit the tanning beds to get my glow on! :)

the show your beautiful arms project

.
.
.
.
It hurts my heart when I hear a woman hating on her body over what I feel are the smallest things, especially having big arms? I don't know who came up with the idea of "a perfect body" and who this person is supposed to be, but in my opinion you already there, already perfect as you. If you're trying to be someone else, who will be you?

Weight is not the problem and your arms are not the problem, it's how you perceive them to be a positive or negative. So, I challenge you to change our perception my gorgeous curvy readers, show your arms! Bare them in the cutest sleeveless top you can find for summer. Bust out the Cacique 5-Way Strapless bra (which defies gravity) and own it.

Should we call it the show your beautiful arms project? :) Show me!! Upload a picture to www.facebook.com/fatshionchic.

a good day

.
.
.

Transition is in the air, and it feels like electricity. I feel it on my skin and in my bones. I know who I am, what I can do and what I'm capable of. I will keep my feet on the ground and my head in the air, because my destiny is just ahead.

Stay focused and never waiver. Here's a little inspiration shot from my office today. Was totally jammin' to Brit Brit and finalizing important contracts that will ensure my agency's success. Cheers to life my lovers!

Love you
Jessica

day at the radio station

.
.
.
.

So I think I'm addicted to radio interviews lovers. I've done more tv than I can count, but girlfriendsssssss, radio is where it's at! Was so much fun and helps that I've known the host for years. I brought along my new officemate bff Bunn Salarazon to snap some pictures of me and my new fancy top from Sizes To Fit!

Let me know what you think of the interview and my new top!

a $20 watch made my day

.
.
.
.
.
So I have a millions things to show and tell! But, headed out the door to snooze for hopefully 36 hours. I just produced the second largest event of my life, but feels like the biggest since it was a very complicated wedding show concept. It (Portland Weddings of the World) was last night, and everything was beyond belief beautiful. I am so blessed to have worked with so many of the top wedding professionals in Portland, especially since I'm the new kid on the wedding block around here :).

I was headed to the radio station the other day to promote the show, and it was right after Mother's Day and my hubby suprised me with the best gift ever. I'm easy to please on the material stuff, it's the thought that counts for me. And my husband had offered to drop off our kiddo at daycare that morning to make my life easier while I rushed to get ready to leave, which is really the best present ever already, and when he came back, he had a Kohl's bag and a huge smile. See, for Christmas I asked for some sort of replica of the Michael Kors white watch, and if he bought anything over $50 I would hurt him.

And this $20 knock off totally made my morning! He said he saw some girl wearing it, asked her where to get it and how much and ran to Kohl's....LOL. I love it.

Here's to the small things in life that make us smile.

sealed with a deal

.
.
.
.
.
A day in the life of Jessica Kane Brand Solutions Agency is full of emails, calls, marketing magic and deals. This particular day was a big day for my agency as I worked on sealing the deal to being the exclusive brand solutions agency for an up and coming job placement training agency - Competitiv-Edge.com. If you go there now, you'll see why they needed some help from yours truly! :) Since it was a big day, I wore my newest dress I purchased from Avenue. This dress was made for my body, and I'm kinda really obsessed with Damask print lately! Being comfortable made the inner confident Jkane come out, and I will tell anyone who feels fashion/style is silly, they are crazy...especially for big girls! I fire on all cylinders (sorry, that's my redneck coming out...yes, I love NHRA) and kick ass.

So, let's kick some ass ... here's my journey to sealing the deal....did I get the gig? Keep reading...


First, I bought this amazing dress from Avenue!! Get it here on Avenue or here on OneStopPlus.com I love the pockets!


Thought about the proposal....

Finalized my services proposal....

Dotted all i's and t's...

Took a quick peep outside to gather my mojo....

Took some quick snaps of the dress....

Took more snaps of the dress....

I love the pockets!

Worked my magic and got the job.... (thanks to my friend Mandy for the undercover photography!)...

I tell you what, I've never felt more alive and connected to the power that is within me. And, this dress, and the fashion I feature on this blog, are truly the important parts that make me feel like my best. So be the best version of yourself and share what you love with me on my facebook page www.facebook.com/fatshionchic.

Oh! Necklace is from Avenue too, but it's not online anymore :(. sorry dolls!

Xoxo

on the go

.

I'm so excited to start blogging again! Truth be told, I was SO unfashionable for too long [while moving into my new office] !! But hard to be fabulous when you're huffing and puffing up the steps, moving furniture around, drilling and measuring and taping! So, I'm finally at a point at my office to proceed with life, well until it's time to paint! The other day I had to jet out the door for a meeting with the presenting sponsor of my wedding show - Weddings of the World. So I threw on a trusty boyfriend blazer and pants and tried this new top that was sent to me from Kmart! Yah, KMART! This top totally rocks and an easy way to dress up a blazer.

I'm so bummed I can't find this top online, but check out the rest of Kmart's Love Your Style line, I'm totally loving it...maybe it'll get me out of my white/black/red mode? :D  Check: http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/search_10151_10104?keyword=love+your+style.

Have a great day dolls, Happy Friday! And, thanks to my hubby for taking these shots of me. :)
