The Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Hi, everybody!

Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party 2012! This is my third time participating in this party and it is great fun, so join us, if you haven't already. I'm looking forward to visiting your blog so say hello and let me know how to find you.

In this post, I thought I'd tell you a little about myself, but feel free to take a look around the blog as well. Make yourself at home! :)


Homeschooling Mom...

I am kind of a crunchy granola kind of mom, although there are times when you would never know it, like the days when I just cannot imagine cooking a meal and head for the nearby golden-arches fast food place. When possible, however, we eat natural and organic.

We use a Waldorf-inspired homeschooling plan, though I am cheating this year by not planning the whole year in advance. I have homeschooled my son since the preschool and kindergarten years.



Last year, I published The Capsule Wardrobe Book: Signature Style Essentials for Plus-Size Fashionistas. This year, I plan to create a do-it-yourself seasonal color analysis kit. And all year long, I am a personal style blogger here and at the blog I created for warm/true autumns.

Certified 12-Season Color Analyst...

I don't think that seasonal color analysis is easy for anyone, but I think it has often been more complicated for women of color, so I created this blog to help other women of color find information that might help them determine their seasons. One of the reasons I became certified as a color analyst was so that I could help by doing virtual color analysis if they need it.

The Giveaway

Do you know your season? One of you could get my help in either finding out or confirming it because I am giving away to one Ultimate Blog Party 2012 participant a virtual color analysis.

Can't wait to mingle and meet you! Thanks for stopping by. :)


Having trouble deciding which season you are? I'd be happy to help!
Start the process of finding your season by taking my
seasonal color analysis quiz

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints


  1. Nice to "meet" you. How cool that you do color analysis. I always found it fascinating!

Hey, thanks for visiting! Though I am leaving the blog up, I am turning off the comment function. You can still contact me if you have thoughts to share, though.
