10 things

IMG_3269

Part of what I love about blogging is getting to know the bloggers that I read. I always appreciate when others share some personal details about themselves so I thought I would do the same. Here are 10 things you might now know about me!

1. I started reading fashion blogs in early 2008 (Cupcakes and Cashmere was my first one. Back when she was posting point and shoot pictures of herself). I had just graduated high school and wanted some clothing inspiration for college. It really kicked into high gear about 6 months later during an internship where I was tasked with understanding “this new world of blogging” for a major lingerie company.

2. I went to college in Philadelphia, at the University of Pennsylvania and majored in Sociology and Gender, Society and Culture. But now, I work in technology as a consultant for a major tech firm.

3. While studying gender studies, my love for technology (and fashion!) flourished. I held internships at RentTheRunway, Google, and Victoria’s Secret.

4. I have two brothers, one older and one younger. They are tall and super thin, and i’m a pear. But to be honest, I love it that way! I argue I got the good genes.

5. My boyfriend and I met during a summer internship at Google during my sophomore year of college (his senior year). We dated long distance for 2 years (cross country!) and only about 1 year ago did we officially live in the same city. I truly believe he is my soulmate. If we got through that I know we can get through anything.

6. My dad is my best friend. We have the same personality. He even loves clothes and shoes like me!

7. I have a not-so-secret lifelong dream to be in a hair commercial…

8. I eat my turkey bacon in the morning with pepperoncinis. My boyfriend thinks its weird. My dad understands.

9. I have the exact same eye color and skin color as my mother. Exactly. We can share foundation and concealer. It’s convenient for when I go home.

10. I was born and raised in Chula Vista, CA. A very small town about 5 miles from the border with Mexico. My dad is Mexican and my mom is American so I grew up with literally two distinct cultures. With one in my backyard!

Cheers, to a weekend filled with love

*Confession: First picture of boyfriend and I together in years. I love it even if it’s terrible

This last week was a rough one for so many reasons. The man above and I just each independently had a tough couple of days and are so excited to be together this weekend to relax and simply enjoy each others company. As many of you know, we are both consultants and are on customer sites, apart, Monday-Thursday every week, so our weekend time together is even more precious. Oh do I love him so

I got an email from a reader yesterday that completely changed the tone of my day. This amazing young lady praised this blog and told me what an impact it has made on her body acceptance and happiness. Her words are the reason I do this. So thank you Molly, for being amazing and lifting my spirits. Your words have touched me indefinitely.

Here is to Molly, and to a relaxing and love-filled weekend.

TPS Got a Makeover

965-2

You may have noticed that my beloved little blog got a facelift over the weekend! This has been a longtime coming as TPS continues to grow, and I could not be happier with the result. My boyfriend did the majority of the customizations with amazing banner work done by Victoria. Thanks so much Victoria for being such a pleasure to work with!

I wanted to make everyone aware of a few major new features here that I am really excited about:

1. Pearshape Resources page: This is something that has been in the works since the inception of this blog. It is a broken down list of some of the major features: Alteration tips + stories, Styling tips, Reviews, and Trends/Pearshape solutions. Check out the page as a one-stop reference shop for all things pearshape fashion and fit.

2. Popular posts: On the right sidebar is a list of popular posts. Look here for some of the best of TPS!

3. New and improved comment form: Comments are something I highly encourage and love reading. Getting feedback from you guys is so important to me so I added a brand new comment form to make things even easier to participate in the discussion. Feel free to leave me a note. I’d love to hear from you!

Aside from these main functions you’ll also see a snazzy new About Me page as well as Contact Me form. I hope you like the new layout! And as always, thank you so much for reading. xo
