“You are imperfect, permanently & inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.”
– Amy Bloom
My name is Lisa and for most of my life I have been plus size and I struggled for years to accept my size, trying everything I could to lose weight, believing that the answer to everything was being thin. I can now proudly say that I have finally gotten to the point where I accept myself for who I am and my body for what it is. I now truly know that I am beautiful both inside and out. As a result of my self love journey, in 2015 I decided to put my love of fashion, beauty and interior design into starting a blog to inspire others and to continue to push myself outside of my comfort zone. As a size 26/28 I know the challenge of finding clothes in my size range and I hope to share with you what I have learned and the options that I have found over the years. And I am always on the lookout for new options!
As someone who grew up in the 90s there are certainly more options now than ever before. My mission is to inspire the every day woman. I want to show her that she can find clothing that is stylish and she doesn’t have to settle. I believe that every woman can dress well and feel beautiful; it may take a little effort but the end result is well worth it.
During the day I am a CPA, CA with over 17 years’ experience and I have a successful professional career in a mid-size accounting firm. I love challenging the idea of what it means to dress as professional, particularly in a male dominated profession.
I love what I do and being a strong professional career oriented woman has given me amazing opportunities in life but blogging allows me to express my creative side and I love being able to apply my business background to the blog and building my brand.
In my spare time I enjoy traveling (in particular cruising), cooking, shopping, watching TV (I am a self-professed junkie) and spending quality time with family and friends.
