Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

The Top Women's Swimsuit Trends for Summer 2013

Sexy Cutouts: Plunging necklines, side-cut monokinis, and strappy cutouts are huge swimsuit trends for summer 2013. They're stylish and sexy alternatives to the traditional string bikini. My top pick for the trend is this Aloha by Swimbay Women's Monokini. It has 18 out of 22 five-star customer reviews and comes in different patterns and colors. It's also currently on sale, marked down from $89.00 to $43.99 - $47.99 (depending on the size and style). For a more conservative way to get in on the cutouts trend, try this Trina Turk "Happy Hour" One Piece Plunging Halter

Fringe: My favorite top trend for swimsuits this season is the fringe. It has such a cool, boho vibe to it.  L*Space on Amazon has a great selection of fringed swimsuits, including fringed monokinis, one-piece suits, and fringed bikini tops. I really love the fringed plunging halter one-piece.


Ruffles: Ruffles have made a major jump from girls' swimwear to women's bathing suits. For women's swimsuits this summer; ruffles are layered, cascade down plunging necklines, and display one big layer on bikini tops. A ruffled tankini is a great way to hide your tummy, and a ruffled bikini top is a great way to add some volume on top.

Color Block: Color blocking is still a big style trend for 2013, so it's no surprise that color block bathing suits are popular this season. Color block swimsuits look great in both one and two-piece suits. A one piece with bold color in the middle and black on the sides will give the illusion of a slimmer waist, and a suit with lighter color on top and a darker block of color on the bottom like this Magic Suit ruffled one piece can minimize your tooshie.

Retro: Vintage-inspired suits are a very big trend this summer. The trend includes pinup-style one pieces with sweetheart necklines and boy-short hems, while the two-piece retro swimsuits are high-wasted. If you're otherwise fit but still fighting that little bulge below the belly button, it's a great way to keep that pooch under wraps.

Prints: This trend isn't new, but for 2013, there are a few extra-trendy patterns. If you go with pattern this summer, pick a swimsuit in animal print, floral, or tie dye. The popular floral prints consist of beautiful "flora and fauna" patterns, like this gorgeous Nanette Lepore Women's Tatsuyama Goddess One-Piece.

    look beautiful, but I am not a fan of cutouts or bikinis. I just bought a new miraclesuit from Burlington Coat Factory. It looks really cute and it makes me look thinner than I usually do. The best part was, it was only half the price I had seen it for in the department stores.
