Lululemon: Ignore the Jerk!

How can women feel beautiful when the founder of a company that promotes women’s empowerment tells us that “some women’s bodies just actually don’t work”?

My answer? Ignore the jerk!

For those of you who don’t know, “Lululemon Athletica Inc. is facing another legal proceeding in the U.S. related to the controversial recall of its too-sheer black Luon yoga pants.” (The Canadian Press).   Last week, Chip Wilson, the founder, made a statement on Bloomberg TV that the problem has to do with the women wearing the pants, claiming that if your thighs rub together, their pants may not be for you.  He then made a public “apology”, not apologizing to all the women he offended, but to his employees.  YIKES!

As a marketer and former plus-sized woman, I was shocked and offended!  Actually….if I was a size 4 lawyer or teacher or electrician….I still would have been offended.

About me


Who am I?

I am a Marketing Professional, Singer, Big Sister, Movie Enthusiast, Music Lover, Chef in Training, Self-taught Makeup Artist, TV Show Junky, and Disney Princess wannabe.

Why did I start this blog?

A couple years ago, I was thinking about starting a blog to share my beauty tips, tricks, and product recommendations.  I never went to beauty school but I worked for a cosmetic company and have learned a lot from books, articles, observing others, and self-trial. I decided not to start the blog because, as a marketer, I didn’t think I had an interesting enough angle to make it worthwhile.

The past two years, however, were life changing!  I was laid off from my job, had to make a new group of friends, lost over 40 pounds, learned how to cook and took my first solo vacation.  Through all this, I finally discovered my inner strength and beauty.  I became interested in analyzing the concept of beauty and happiness and how they relate to inner confidence – ie. What makes someone beautiful? Does confidence come naturally? Is happiness a choice?  What can we do to make ourselves feel more beautiful / confident / happy?  …etc.

So…I finally found my angle and decided to start this blog!

Why should you follow my blog?

Every women, at some point, struggles with self-acceptance, appreciation and feeling beautiful.  Sometimes all it takes is a dash of mascara, inspiring story or compliment from a stranger to make you feel fabulous!

I hope that I can entertain, teach and/or inspire you by sharing my experiences, discoveries, thoughts, and beauty tips.  Every woman deserves to feel beautiful!
