EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with Melissa McCarthy of Ghostbusters - Considering that I pretty much started my blog at the same time that Melissa McCarthy started her clothing line, it seems only right that I get this exclusve with her majesty herself.

Melissa is a big supporter of cancer so it's not shocking that she would show up for Gilda's Cancer fundraiser at Caroline's Comedy in NYC. Looking flat out amazing, Melissa took time to thank her adoring fans by signing autographs, talk with yours truly and then she did the most amazing thing.

She found a family who was visiting and brought them over to speak with them one-on-one. When an over excited fan tried to muscle in on the experience, she politely told him she'd get to him when she was done with the family - and did. I've been around an embarrassing amout of celebrities but I've yet to see someone handle a situation with such class and sincerity.

Please be sure to support Melissa and the gals from Ghostbusters! Tell 'em sent you!

HONORARY IRISH: I met Irish celebrity Noelle O'Connor of Tan Organic

Noelle O'Connor won Ireland's version of Shark Tank and never looked back.
( - Recently I was invited to attend Blogger Bash, a super fun social media influencer and blogger event which was held aboard a Manhattan based yacht called, "Majesty." Earlier the day before, I met a lovely woman who was from Ireland. We joked about how 'overly excited' American moms and bloggers can be she. She was frazzled thinking she'd have to find a way to maintain that kind of energy.

WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY: I'm finally ready to focus on me

This is "Cherrylicious," one of my homemade creations that I feature in the upcoming cookbook.
( - For the past two and a half years, I'm been living in daily crisis. First, my little one and I survived domestic violence only to be revictimized by family court by a false allegation made by a disgruntled person I was having the domestic violence issue with. Then we survived Hurricane Sandy and a few weeks later my mother died.

I was so busy fighting to save my child, I had no time to process anything else. Thank goodness for good friends and blogging. It really helped to write it out and my amazing support system was there for me in the darkest of hours.

Now, I'm fighting to get us out of crisis living and be reunited. Thankfully, I'm not alone in that fight either as strangers around the world are joining me in the fight to save my child. But recently, I had the chance to look in the mirror and at photos I've taken along the journey to freedom. I hardly recognized myself. The final push came from covering Curvy Con, a new community event that help plus size bloggers, women and those who love them build body positivity.
