Lovely Links: December 11

WOW, people. Big week for great content here on the Interwebs …

Sonja has a fantastic new beauty blog. And she’s already giving away some lovely cosmetics from Korres.

Which do I love more: Super Kawaii Mama or Super Kawaii Mama’s Christmas list? Don’t make me choose!

I’m just tickled that Emily at Some Girls Wander by Mistake is posting regularly again. (Thanks to my girl Alison for recommending this gorgeous blog about 6 trillion years ago.)

I’d like to be this lady someday.

In response to this week’s post about femininity and athleticism, WendyB pointed me to this fascinating article about Caster Semenya.

I’ve been considering a post on the hateful phrase “she’s let herself go” for ages, but Pseu beat me to it. And articulated what I wanted to say FAR better than I could’ve.

Lovely Marianna – an apple-shaped woman with impeccable style – imparts a plus-sized perspective over at You Look Fab.

So you bought a pair of ankle booties. How on EARTH should you wear those suckers?

    There are so many fantastic links here – I love finding new blogs and have added many of these to my reader – and I'm so touched that my post is one of them. Thank you so much for the link!

    My very first boyfriend (back in high school) told me the main reason we were breaking up is "You really let yourself go, Jule." I was 17 (and very impressionable) and had gained a few pounds and it took me until recently to get over it. I don't want to blame someone else for my insecurities, but there have been a lot of self-body issues that I've recently realized started after that.

    It realy is a hateful phrase! Thank you for posting that link!
