I have found it! The coolest site for fashionistas, artists and creative people alike. Polyvore.com is the greatest website ever. I can create fashion collages with articles of clothing, accessories, bags, shoes and more. Below are a couple of examples of collages I've made and it really brings out your creativity especially since I don't know how to draw! I'm in love. It's gotten all sorts of juices flowing within me right now (not those juices, dirty birdies.). So expect TONS of collages on my blog now and hopefully some of them will inspire you with your wardrobe or just in life. LOVE! Xx

Do you have any favorite television shows? Tons, I watch Family Guy probably once a day and I love The Office. Arrested Development is hilarious, Will & Grace is my all time favorite and then I would have to say America's Next Top Model when I can catch it.
What’s your favorite place in the whole world? My room at my parents house.
You at 35: Hopefully married with a kid and a career.
What do you miss most about being at home? Couches!
Do you enjoy board games? What kind? Scattergories! My new fav.
What made you decide to cut your hair short? It's been short since I was 12 and although at times I envy long maned women, I wouldn't change it for the world. I love my short hair, it's definitely part of who I am.
What is your favorite article of clothing? American Apparel shirts, I have 3 now and adding more. They are soooo soft and comfortable and they go with everything and come in cool colors.
Would you ever try to create clothes? (Or maybe you have already!) I have tried but I'm not very good or patient.
How do you manage your wardrobe & your budget? I never spend more than $30 on anything. Shoes, shirts, skirts, dresses, pants, underwear, socks. Everything has to be under $30 or I won't buy it, I wait for it to go on sale.
What are the items you just have to splurge on? Purses.
When did you step out of your fashion box and become comfortable with your style? Honestly, just recently. I've always been in love with fashion but never like this. I don't know what happened but something in my head clicked. I think when I was younger I had this fashion craze inside me I was just too afraid to try it or do anything about it. Now I could care less if what I wear is not what someone would call fashionable. I wear it because I think it looks good and I'm comfortable in it. So I would say not until this past year or two.
If you were to write your own autobiography what would this chapter be called and why? It would probably be called "Moving on up", I'm getting things on track and I'm happy.
I know this is my fashion blog and I haven't been updating as often as I should be but I've been either terribly busy or just not around a computer. Well, last night's case was that I just didn't feel like writing but now I'm back! :) I am in the mood to write because I have a couple of things on my mind and they don't all pertain to fashion, so bear with me.
My first issue reappeared because I read an article. This article was about being sick and going to work. I do not remember where the article I read was or who wrote it or anything so I won't quote anything from it but I will just say it's exactly what I've been thinking for years. In my opinion, when I'm feeling under the weather, have a headache, not feeling quite right, I should be able to call in sick and not get the guilt trip or a co-workers nasty attitude. I've been sick my fair share of times and everytime I feel overwhelming guilt that my co-workers won't believe me or make me feel guilty for calling in. I understand when someone is out sick, it puts a little strain on other workers because they have to either do the sick co-workers job or pick up the slack for them not being there. But honestly, I'd rather my co-workers stay the freak away from me when they are sick. I am lucky I'm by myself up front in the lobby so I don't really have to worry about sharing germs with people plus I got my Lysol spray just in case. So, I don't mind when a co-worker calls in sick because I'd rather not get what they have. But soooo many people are coming to work even when they are sick for numerous reasons. One being because they feel guilty for staying home when they know their co-workers will have to work extra hard that day. So many people come in anyways.
I've had a couple of negative encounters when calling in sick because managers either don't believe you or they are upset they have to work twice as hard while you're out. I've been fired for calling in sick on a day when the company was to have a meeting. Apparently, it was such an important meeting that my health didn't matter. Bull crap. I don't agree with this and I'm glad they fired me. My point being, more and more companies are not caring so much about others' health that it's having an affect on the other employees. If one person is sick and the manager/boss won't let them stay home, claiming they NEED them so bad today that they come to work sick therefore spreading their sickness to other employees prompting more and more employees being sick and calling in. My question is, would a manager rather have one person out sick for a couple of days or 10 of their employees out at the same time because they got sick from the ONE sick person who couldn't stay home? I mean really? It's happened to me plenty of times. When I used to work at a day care, I would get sick all the time from the children. If your kid is sick, keep them home! I mean it seems to me like people don't care that their child is sick and they don't care that they could possibly get other children sick, not to mention the caretakers. I mean I was sick almost every month and my managers would get furious if I called in because they were understaffed. . . excuse me but how is that my problem? I'm sick with a fever, body aches and sore throat and they practically told me I had to come in or else. Or else what? You'll fire me and then you'll be even more understaffed? Needless to say, I stayed home. I had a fever and a sore throat, that could mean death for some children if they caught it, not to mention I was working with infants at the time and was always very close to them because of feeding and diaper changing. It baffles me and to this day if I am sick, I ain't coming in. I also don't perform as well when I'm sick, I make more mistakes than usual :) and have no energy. I just think it's ridiculous and I hate the flack you get for calling in sick. I was just glad to see this article whose point was to stay home if you're sick, you're better off. And if the company fires you, they didn't care about you anyways.
