The Year Is Almost Over But Not Quite

As you know I have deemed 2010 as the year of trying new things, and I am really proud of myself. I have gone to Charleston and New York Fashion Week, interviewed designers, called Dov Charney out of the blue, and a ton of other things (all of which you can see here). The year is not over yet. There are still new things to try and see and do.

If you have been following my blog since last year, then you know the blog has been through major changes. I have introduced a new look and feel to the site, and come up with more original posts. TFAS now has an accompanying Tumblr devoted to my fashion musings. I have also started doing three specific posts each week (ASK TFAS, Shoe of the Week, and the reader favorite Bad Bish). If there is something you want to see on the blog, let me know. I am always open to suggestions. If you have a question that you want up for consideration for the ASK TFAS post or just a general question, email me at thefatandskinnyblog[at]gmail[dot]com.

I’m sure you have noticed the guest beauty posts by Quinn from VivalaQbee03. If there is something you want Quinn to talk about, go to her blog and let her know. She is also doing beauty features on different bloggers. Go participate. I did. I also have interns now. Their names are Ariel, Angelena, Sofie, and Erin. Sabrina is no longer with us. We miss you. Click on the links to check out their blogs. They are phenomenal, and you can tell when they wrote a post because it will be tagged with their name and blog at the bottom.

My blog posts are syndicated on Lovelyish now. You can also find me at HelloCotton.  It is so funny to me that I get more readers from the syndicated sites than from the blog itself, but I’m not complaining. My blog’s reader count fluctuates, and even though it isn’t at my goal number yet, I am just pleased as punch that people actually take the time out of their day to read my blog.

Thank you so much.

I probably wouldn’t know what to do without you guys and gals. Because I took the time to start this blog, I have visited so many different places, and my little introverted self has met so many different people I never would have dreamed of meeting. I have even met people that have encouraged me to put my photography,writing, and styling work into an online portfolio. It is a work in progress, but I am proud of it and myself. This blog,as you know, is my thesis project for graduate school. Everything seems to be going on track. If all goes well, which it will because I am speaking it into existence, I will graduate with an MFA in Fashion Journalism from AAU, and I promise you I will keep this blog going.

TFAS Tries Black Lipstick and Other Stuff

OMG Sooo this weekend my blog went down…like all the way down to the point where nobody could access it. Now it is up and running again. Of course. Thanks to all of my blogging friends that helped me get the log back up. Love ya much! 🙂

Last week I told you I would try black lipstick. I did it and you can see the results in this video. I also talk about my blog feed, which is acting crazy, and a new part of the blog…

Introducing ASK TFAS! If you have a question about life, love, fashion, and beauty, just ASK TFAS! If i don’t know the question, I will refer to my trusty blogging friends and hopefully we can help you out. Email me your question at thefatandskinnyblog[at]gmail[dot]com with the subject labeled ASK TFAS.

Remember That Announcement I Said I Was Going To Make Last Week…

Well Here It Is…..
From Freelance Folder
The Fat and Skinny is a work in progress. Since this blog has changed from hobby to graduate school thesis project, more changes are coming. I am trying to turn TFAS into an online fashion magazine/blogazine.
As you may have noticed, I get a few guests posts on the blog every now and then. I am trying to branch out by having more writers on the blog.
Sooo…
I am looking for fashion journalism interns.

The Fat and Skinny on Fashion is looking for interns that know how to blog and probably have their own blogs, love fashion,love to take style photos of their outfits or the outfits of others, and love to write. If you need college credit, great! If you don’t need college credit, that’s fine too. Unfortunately this internship is unpaid, but you do get clips. The internship starts as soon as possible. 

Since this is obviously an online internship, TFAS is seeking writers from around the world.

Topics TFAS is looking for:
International Fashion News
Domestic Fashion News
Accessories
Jewelry
Beauty
Straight/Plus Size Fashion
Top Model News
Menswear

Please send your resume, 1 or 2 writing samples, or your blog address to the following address thefatandskinnyblog[at]gmail[dot]com with the subject title “The Fat and Skinny Internship.”

If you want to be a guest post writer, let me know at thefatandskinnyblog[at]gmail[dot]com.

I Think It Is Pretty Safe To Say That Is Totally Me!

I am an Aquarius. Aquarians are what some would call bizarre and ever-changing that is me. SO WHAT! Well I found this quote on Literate & Stylish Tumblr the other day when I was taking a break from doing my final projects. It is from John Lennon, a Libra. Libras and Aquarians tend to go well together. I guess that is why his quote describes both of us. If I got a tattoo this is what is would say, but since I change my mind too much to get something permanent like that.

OH! I just wanted you all to know that I have a Tumblr now. I had one before, deleted it, and now I think I am going to keep this one up now. Here it is.
