My kids have always LOVED commercials. Maybe it's because their dad works in advertising, or maybe it's because, unlike me, they never ever get tired of hearing the "Flipeez" theme song that seems to play on repeat between shows. Whatever the case, when an ad pops up on the screen, my twins are completely riveted. So when a totally inappropriate commercial was shown during a KID movie on…Continue

Life can be a bit discouraging! It is hard. It is rough. We ALL have bad days that sometimes turn into bad weeks, bad months and even bad years.
This week I ran into several different people, all going through completely different trials, but all struggling with one thing exactly the same – their self worth. A young friend struggling with the overwhelming amout of homework she had to get done, a young mom trying to find balance between her job and children, a wife going through a…Continue

In the past couple of months, I have been using three image creation tools to help with my blogging that I wanted to share with you.
It’s a free web based tool (although there is an upgrade option that I’ve not used myself) and is really easy to use. It helps you…Continue

We all know that kids really don't have any kind of a filter when it comes to speaking their minds. The thoughts just tumble out of their mouths like the trash rolls out of my purse when it falls over. They don't mean to hurt your feelings -- they just call it like they see it. For example, when they say I have a…Continue

Society plays a huge role on how people perceive themselves, especially in terms of physical appearance. Men are judged heavily if they are not tall and muscular enough. Women are perceived ugly if they don’t have a buxom or ultra-thin model body. It is a sad reality because the media plays a huge role on how society perceives the ideal body image.

It doesn't feel like it’s been almost 4 years since I was divorced, but I do feel like I've come a long way. Working on remodeling my interior during my transition was outrageously more difficult than Eva 2.0—The Exterior.…Continue

I'm a rag mag reader. Yep, I am. I picked up one today that caught my attention because it had Kelly Clarkson and Khloe Kardashian on the front, and supposedly their weight loss secrets were on the inside.
I was curious. Don't judge me.
I read that Khloe Kardashian is claiming to be a size 6. Okay, that number seems to be very popular with celebrities when they lose weight. They all end up at a size 6, don't they? Seems to ring bells all over the place, doesn't it?…
As women, we can be really hard on ourselves and each other. I know every time I go out in public, I get more stares from women than men. Not necessarily because they're trying to hit on me or anything like that, but because women can be so such critics of other women and how they look.
"Girl, what she got on," "Honey she think she cute," "She think she…

Did you see this article? I saw it late last night and LOVED it. Even posted it to my Facebook page. In the spread, size 12 model Katya Zharkova poses nude next to a “straight size” model to show the differences between them.
I loved it… thought it was a beautiful spread, truer words were…Continue

Not by the dimensions of my waist.
Not by the cup of my bra.
Not by the width of my behind.
Not by my age.
Not by the color of my skin.
Not by the unruliness of my hair.

There are a few things in life that get me heated instantly, and our society’s misogynistic view of what woman should look like is one of them. I hate to think that my daughters are growing up in a society with such distorted views of what a woman’s figure is. We come in different shapes, sizes and colors and that’s beautiful. I don’t want my daughters to think that the plastic they…
