Fashion Blog: Forgotten Cotton is Fabulous

As most of y’all know, I’m from a little island called Puerto Rico which means, I’m tropical. It’s always summer in PR, unless it’s winter and then it’s maybe ten degrees cooler but that’s all you get. Now I live in Texas, not a HUGE change but a rather significant one. Fall and Winter are actually seasons here. I’m not talking crazy amounts of snow but yes, it gets cold. My point is, I needed some clothes, fashionable bits and pieces to not only make me look like a beautiful fairy princess but also keep me warm because this fairy princess does not live in an always warm forest. Luckily, my friend Melissa Creamer (who I will introduce later on because she is one AMAZING jeweler) hooked me up with Lizzi co-owner of Forgotten Cotton. Forgotten Cotton is an etsy shop that sells an array of beautiful handmade accessories and clothing items. Handmade, y’all! Not machine crap stuff you can get off ebay. These people create these magnificent pieces of clothes with their glorious hands.

If you’re like me, you’re pretty darn weird. You’re weird and allergic to all sorts of metals going anywhere near your earholes. You’ve also lived your life desperately wanting cute earrings that didn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Unfortunately, funky yet cute earrings don’t exist for people like us. We, we have to take matters into our own hands. Continue reading

I got a breast reduction. What?!

1115141342a

After surgery

That’s right. I had a breast reduction. I did. It was a pretty intense experience and I had been keeping it on the “down-low” for a while now. At first, I was genuinely afraid of what others might think of my breast reduction. I’ve always been busty. My breast developed from the ripe ol’ age of 8. I deemed and described as the “Girl with the big boobs and glasses”. And as insulting and somewhat shallow that characterization may have seemed, it somehow became part of me.

The main reason I went ahead with a breast reduction was my health. I am a whopping 5’1 and wore a 38 F. Yes, not Double D’s, not Triple D’s, but F. I’m pretty small. I never realized how small until I got them reduced. In retrospection, I should have done this a long long time ago. But I was scared. I was afraid of becoming someone I was not. I was constantly told how lucky I was and how some women PAID to get be somewhere near my size. I was worried that I would become unattractive and somehow less of a woman.

Before surgery

I’ve been meaning to write a post about this for a very long time and I apologize if my thoughts seem a bit scattered. I just figured that if I kept putting it off, I’d never write it.

I also have a herniated disk that pinches my sciatic nerve. Let’s just say, that pinched nerves are not very fun. It was mainly this situation that left me with no other choice. All of my doctors decided that a reduction would greatly improve my quality of life and they were absolutely correct. My life is better. I feel better. I am better. Did you know that there are things called “bralettes”? I had no idea! They’re adorable! I OWN 12 now!  Continue reading

Magnificent Toffee Peanut Butter Cookies

2014-10-13 15.55.43

The holiday season is coming! Are you excited? I’m excited. I’m always excited about awesome things. I haven’t baked in a while. Well, to be honest, I’ve baked I’ve just been unhappy with the recipes I’ve come up with. This one, on the other hand, I want to eat until my tummy says “NO MORE, MELY”. And then I’ll keep eating because my tummy doesn’t need to be telling me how to live my life.  Continue reading
