I ♥ Pilates

If you're a newsletter subscriber, you may remember that in one of the Christmas gift guides, Tiffany suggested buying a Roku.  She was so convincing that I bought Mr. Tall a Roku player.  If you're not familiar with what it is, it's a small media player that hooks into your television and connects to your WIFI. You can then broadcast Amazon movies easily as well as hundreds of other channels. Think of it as the ultimate remote control. Mr. Tall loves it, but I may love it even more. I missed the "Downton Abbey" craze and am now watching all the episodes via my Roku stream.  I just about fell over when my teen sons admitted that they love the show too! :) Anyway, what I really wanted to share with you today is that I love the Pilates Anytime Channel! You know me, when I love something, I share it with you.   I'm still on the 15 day free trial period of this channel and I must say that I'm enjoying it.  My feet are doing my better after my plantar fasciitis, but I'm not … [Read more...]

The Backpack Trend

We're seeing a new trend for Spring and it comes in the form of a backpack.  The good thing is that backpacks can be worn anywhere and are especially handy if you're trying to juggle groceries and keep the kids in check. Although you probably are picturing backpacks being worn casually with jeans, we're seeing designer backpacks for the corporate woman too. Tans and blacks are always safe if you're not sure about this trend. New Look Formal Backpack. Metallic Quilted Backpack. Frye Leather Backpack. Tulu Polkdot. Map Backpack. Leather Foldover. Roxy Backpack. Knomo London Laptop Backpack.   Leather Backpack Handbag. Which one is your favorite? I'm going with the map backpack. I'm linking up to Because Shanna Said So.   … [Read more...]

Having Tall Kids – Part 2

A few weeks ago I wrote this post, posing the question "Afraid of Having Tall Kids?" It has led to some interesting discussions below the post and over on our Facebook page and on twitter.  However,  some didn't even read the post and blasted me on posing the question.  Others were glad to have these type of discussions. Before you read any further, if you haven't read the first post, please go and read it first. After reading the first article, you will see my real intention. As a mother of five children, I want my children to grow up happy and well-adjusted. I'm proud of my height and want tall people everywhere to be proud of their bodies and feel comfortable in their own skin. Today on our Facebook page, one of our readers Dawn offered this post and she has given me permission to repost: Dear Krista, I am a follower of your lovely and helpful site on Facebook. I am writing in response to your post on December 27th asking for opinions on the choice to have children when … [Read more...]

Bras Customized For You

A few of you have expressed frustration overly ill-fitting bras.  I just came across a customized bra shopping company.  Check out True & Co as they have an online quiz you can easily shop for a bra that fits. I hope it works for you as when I took the quiz, they said they don't have my size. Yikes! I know I'm large chested, but that's embarrassing!   Good luck!  You may also want to check out this post on custom made bras. … [Read more...]

Afraid of Having Tall Kids?

As a blogger, I get lots of emails and questions and sometimes they have nothing to do with fashion.  I love my readers and am excited that some of you trust me enough with your deepest thoughts. Some of your emails weigh heavy on my mind!  Over the last few years, a few of you have expressed concern and anxiety over your future and fears of being a parent. In particular some of you are extremely anxious about reproducing tall children. Now, I know this is a valid fear for some of you. After all, perhaps you've been bullied or struggled with self-esteem issues you believe have stemmed from your height.  Many of you hold your head high, but secretly are just trying to figure out ways to feel more comfortable in your skin. I understand! Don't think for a moment that I didn't have some of these issues cross my mind. I haven't always been overly confident.  My middle school years were brutal! I had a lot of negative self-talk and internalized the things insecure short boys said to … [Read more...]
