Letter to My Body - by Dawn Schnee
Letter to My Body - by Dawn Schnee
SATURDAY, JULY 11, 2009

I once looked at the curve of your thigh and remarked to my mother, “I think I’m going to have your thighs.” She shot back, “You keep eating cookies the way you do and you’ll have YOUR thighs.”

I felt awkward in you. Frustrated tears when you couldn’t jump rope in gym. Embarrassed when you wouldn’t work fast enough or coordinated enough to keep from getting picked last for the team.

Swimsuit torture. Granny breasts on a teenage form. I was ashamed of the angry red stretch marks on your upper thighs.

But, you were strong enough to grow and deliver the baby they all said you’d never make. You delivered him and quickly healed. I was so familiar with you by this point, that it was strange to me to not be able to identify all your parts. Nothing was where I had left it.

Pregnancy left more marks on you, forever banning you from being a swimsuit model. With this final scarring across your stomach, and more stretch in the breasts, I forgave your imperfections and quirks.

In the middle of the night, very unceremoniously, our last war ended with a whimper. I was tired as I walked down the hall, and the familiar script began to whisper, “Fatty …”

The words had no sting. They lost their power somewhere along the way.

You’ve done good work. You’ve carried me well these years. Let me take care of you. Let me try to build your strength and health. Rather than trying to make you be something you are not, let me finally see you are a good body, you are my good body.

You may have noticed red soled shoes gracing the feet of many celebs.   What are these ruby red shoes you ask, and where can I find them?  They are the Christian Louboutin shoes, all of these shoes have a red sole and can be found at high end department stores but will cost you around $700…pricy!!! No need to fret because my friend came up with a genius idea.  She went and had her regular stiletto heels resoled with a red rubber sole and then she took a red nail polish (you could also try a red Sharpie) and colored in the rest of the shoe to look just like the real ones!  And the best part you really can’t even tell the difference unless you closely inspect.  So, if you are feeling craftsy this is a great fashion trick to try!

Which Sex and the City girl are you?
Which Sex and the City girl are you?
TUESDAY, JUNE 24, 2008


A few weeks ago one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year made its debut in theaters across the country. Anxious fans who have been waiting for a few years now were eager to break out the cosmos and Manolos. Yes, if you haven’t already guessed I'm talking about the Sex and the City movie. I was so excited that l finally got a chance to see the movie last night with one of my girlfriends! After seeing the movie and of course in true Carrie form....I got to thinking about relationships and the ones you have with your girlfriends.

Do you have a tight knit group like the one in the movie? Who's the Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda of your group? Which character are you?
