The best kind of day

Friday, November 08, 2013

I had a good day. After months of feeling utterly miserable, lack of energy, motivation, care, a total funk of depression for no good reason except the fact my body used up every ounce of serotonin and dopamine I have. There is such a long story there, but the moral is, I may seem always happy - afterall the unfortunate side effect of social media is that we only see someone's highlights - but I go through it too. Unfortunately, I operate with the mentality of "if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all." And, I try to spare you the emotional vomit :). You're welcome, lol. So the last two days I've actually dressed up, wore makeup, did my hair and I tell you -- makes a world of difference and puts a smile on my face.

I had lunch with my best friend Mandy, and I conned her into taking pics of me for old time's sake. Yay I won! HAHA I have been wearing this top 24/7 since Lane Bryant sent me gift box with goodies from their new collaboration with Isabel and Ruben Toledo. I absolutely love the shirt because the fabric is so freaking comfortable and the bottom hem is a high-low from hip to hip. LOVE IT. And when I saw these booties on the Lane Bryant website, I could NOT wait to get them. I'm loving the collab so far and can't wait to see what else they surprise us with.

Have a wonderful weekend loves.

HEALTH: (since it's an inevitable conversation, here are the facts) 310lbs as of Jan 2014, normal blood pressure + cholesterol + sugars + etc, no PCOS, no thyroid problems, I think my metabolism has completely left the building however, I absolutely believe the human body was meant to move and exercise is important! Get those endorphins baby! Afterall, happy people don't kill people, right? :D

RULES I LIVE BY
• being a working mommy wifey doesn't mean I have to dress the part *wink*
• black, white, red and grey for life
• no matter what size I am I will dress this body to the nines
• Size and age are just a numbers
