Twas The Night Before Christmas–

While boycotting Christmas this year, I have still managed to find some sort of humour in Christmas albums. I’ve avoided shopping malls– as I am inclined to do 365 days of the year– if I can.

Plus Size Modeling: An Insight.

“I touched you once too often. Now I don’t know who I am.” – L. Cohen. I was recently approached to be the face of a new plus-size range for women.
