 Lane Bryant Fashion for the Holidays & Gift Card Giveaway

lanebryantnewlogo 525 x 510 Lane Bryant Fashion for the Holidays & Gift Card Giveaway

 

Ever since I was a teen, I have shopped at Lane Bryant.  You see, I’ve always been curvy, plus sized, chubby, what have you.  And I‘m totally ok with it! 

 If you’re a curvy gal, you’re already aware that your shopping options are kind of limited.  You’ve got great features of your body, they’re just a little larger than what is deemed to be “normal.”  Chances are, you have breasts and hips and booty. 

Most stores have a large size or plus sized department, but they tend to carry really matronly items.  I’m not 70 years old wanting to wear leisure wear, nor do I want something that looks like a potato sack.  I want the same cute outfits and styles as the other departments, I just need it in a slightly larger size.

dearie 525 x 776 Dearie: An Interview with Bob Spitz

 

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to interview several authors in conjunction with the Miami Book Fair.  The first in the series is Bob Spitz.  Bob Spitz is a renowned biographer, working with everyone from rock stars to presidents.  His most recent book is Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child. 

Q: What inspired you to write this book?

A: I met Julia Child in 1997 in Italy and recognized she was one of the few beloved Americans without a full-scale biography about her. I thought she deserved the royal treatment.

Have you heard of Sweet Relish?  It’s a new site that allows you to keep track of all the goodies you find on the internet.  Except instead of recipes or DIY projects, it’s actual items that you can buy. 

We all need a way to keep our shopping lists organized.  I mean seriously.  There are times I get so distracted.  In fact, it happened tonight.  I ran into the store to get one thing, and before I knew it “Ooohhh, sparkly…” and I was off.  Worst of all, I didn’t even get the item I originally went in for.  D’OH!  Granted, it was just household items, but who wants to have to trek all the way back to the mall or out shopping for forgotten gifts at this time of year?  Not me!

It's time for another batch of Odd News stories!  I must confess – I started this post in June and for some reason never published it.  Sooo, um…some are old.  All are strange and bizarre, though. 

A Man, a parrot, and a zebra walk into a bar. With video!!

Man punches noisy moviegoer.  We've all wanted to do it.

Chubby thief gets stuck in fence.  With a picture!

Bikini to blame for burned boobs?  The company says nope

California Couple abducts Handyman.  And then forced him to do repairs in their home!

Two Guys decided to eat their neighbor's pet turkey for Thanksgiving.   I found this particularly hilarious, as we've been stalking a family of deer since Spring.  Not to eat, though.  More to come on that.

Man Chases Brownie Girl Scouts out of his house.    Scary, but hilarious.  Having 20 kids in your house might make anyone go crazy!

One of the things that I’m always on the lookout for is really unusual items, whether they’re for gifts or for myself.  You will rarely find me giving someone a gift that’s plain and normal.  It’s just not in me! If you’re planning to go this route, you have to really know your recipient, or have an item that is so spectacularly unique that they’ll love it.   I think that Safari: A Photicular Book falls into the spectacularly unique category. 

I know you’re like “Ummm…what’s a phot icular book?”  It’s this amazing, patented technique that allows a photo to come to life.  Instead of being a 3-d, or a pop-up book, the photi cular technique allows for motion in photographs.  Individual strips of the photo are spliced together  to create a main image.  On it’s own, the image is a little blurry.  When you add the special lens, and view the photo through that, it comes alive!  For this particular Safari book, the animals are running, eating, and doing the various things that you’d hope to see on a safari.
