Hello all! I'm sorry that the photos aren't that great - my camera can be quite unreliable - but I really wanted to share today's outfit. Today I slept in way late and then met my friend for an early dinner. We were going to have sushi but the place was closed for renovation, so we went decided to go to Dadeo's, an 18+ New Orleans style diner, but apparently it's closed on Wednesday! We then went to the Artisan Rest-Cafe and got there less than half an hour before close. We had soup & sandwiches and split a cake, and were very grateful with our server for being so patient and kind when we probably kept him there a bit late. I hadn't seen Heather in ages and so it was really great to catch up. Among other things, we talked a bit about queer safe spaces. We talked about gay bars, and how she feels intrusive about going as a non-queer person. I thought it was awesome that my friend was so aware of her privilege and careful not to intrude other's spaces. That being said, I don't find gay bars to be a safe space at all, and if straight allies want to dance and have fun in a queer-positive space, it's fine by me. I was curious about other's perspectives on this, though. What do you think?
I was a bit brave to wear these shoes as it's still winter here. In fact when I woke I turned on the TV and then went to make coffee and the first thing I heard was "cold temperatures even by Alberta standards." Hardly a comforting way to start the day. I figured I would risk it as I was only walking a few blocks on snow-free sidewalks, but snow isn't the only thing that can make feet cold! I'm just so sick of winter and all I want to do is wear my new flats every single day.

I was wondering if any other plus-size bloggers would be interested in doing a swap of sorts. I'm inspired by this post at Kendi Everyday as well as The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants and I think a share-swap could be a lot of fun! What I'm looking for is someone who is about my size(20-24), preferably living in Canada or the US who would be interesting in swapping a few items of clothing - but only for a week or two! We could decide upon the items in advance, send each other a few skirt or dresses, wear them & blog our outfits, and then send back the (cleaned) clothes after a few weeks. I think it could be a lot of fun and if this is something you might be interested in let me know in comments or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Speaking of shared clothing, I was lucky enough win this lovely pre-loved dress from Kyla the Great on tumblr. I can't wait to wear it!
