It’s New York Fashion Week and I Don’t Care…

In fact, I have no plans to watch anything they’re streaming.  I just don’t seem to care anymore.  It’s not that I don’t like clothing or because I feel like the styles don’t apply to me, it’s just that it’s not something I’m not interested in writing much about anymore.  I feel like my posts […]

OMG! Different-Sized Barbies!

Barbie finally comes in different body types!  Including petite!  I know media are going to focus on “curvy” Barbie, because that’s what media (and body image activists) do, but it’s important to highlight other non-“standard” (whatever that means) sizing as well.  I’m a short girl and as short girls know, we have our own “issues” […]
