Coping with Seasonal Changes

My column here at A Kink in the Curves is all about body image, the occasional fashion tip (like: what should I wear to my next kinky play party), and beauty products. In this month’s article, I’m going to tackle two aspects of the changing season that trip me up every year: less light and […]

This year I dreaded my birthday. I spent months agonizing about it. At the end of May I turned forty—the big 4-0. Although I knew it was approaching (I had thirty-nine years of anticipation) I wouldn’t let myself ponder its significance.

They’re beautifully constructed, and I love […]

Oh the Fur!

This fall and winter the fashion world has embraced fur again. Open any magazine and you’ll see fur trimmed collars, hats, boots… Fur was all over those dang pages. When I purchased the enormous fall issue of Vogue, I remember feeling appalled at all the fur. I couldn’t believe that designers were revisiting it. Hadn’t […]
