....they're all inanimate objects

McCoy just ate my dress flats… I’ve worn them on pretty much every trip I’ve made to NYC, starting with the trip when I got my Dmitry dress. They’re very special to me and I’ve been really, really careful with them, because they were an investment (they were close to $30, which is a lot for a poor person). Crying won’t bring them back but I couldn’t help it, ugh, and now I’m all cried out. I always hide them in the back of the shoe closet, but he must have gotten in there somehow. I’ve made an emergency move of my two pairs of good high heels to a high shelf, just in case, but ugh. I’m gonna miss those shoes :(

Kate was saying it says a lot about a person by which Stark they relate most to. I kinda agree…so Buzzfeed. What’s up. I mean, I already know I relate to Robb Stark but…

can i just say how much i love you for fangirling over kate so much? shes my queen and role model

Aww, thanks! It’s nice to hear from another Kate fan. I’ve always felt bad that she gets so much hate from people in comments on pretty much everything. Have these people ever actually heard her talk? She’s so quick to laugh (including at herself), she’s still in touch with what women deal with out in the real world, and she talks so lovingly and cool about her kids. When she decided to design the LBDs so they’re all under $200, that was huge! Most capsule collections like that from a big name star would have been completely insane. My dress was $129. That’s so cool.

If you ever want to chat or fangirl or whatnot, feel free to hit up my inbox. I love getting to chat with people soooo much! <3 Thanks for stopping by! <3

Hello gorgeous!

I thought of these outfits a lot on my trip, which is part of why I picked up a pair of amazing colorful heels (cobalt blue), a tight black skirt with zippers (fun!) and some breezy, colorful tops. She&#8217;s just such a fashion icon in my life.
And, silly fangirl moment now: When I was 17 or so, I remember picking up a copy of a fashion magazine at the library, and Kate was the cover story. She said something about how she would go to school without makeup, with zit cream on her face. At the time, that was revolutionary for me. I&#8217;ve always struggled a lot with self image and weight issues and whatnot, and still do even now (see: yesterday), but that was so inspirational to me to read. Here was this successful woman saying she didn&#8217;t have to always look 100%, she could admit to NEEDING zit cream&#8230; I mean, it was a crazy thing for me to read. It stuck with me, though, and I&#8217;ve stuck with TeamKate ever since. She gets so much crap for a number of things, namely her personal/romantic life and her weight, and I&#8217;ve always thought it was unfair. She&#8217;s chipper, optimistic, funny and likes food. I can get behind that! She&#8217;s pretty unapologetic about herself, and maybe that&#8217;s the problem people have with her&#8230; she&#8217;s a woman who&#8217;s not afraid to say she likes guys a lot. She&#8217;s not afraid to say she&#8217;s weighed 185lbs. Well,she&#8217;s also a killer cool mom and has dabbled in making kickass dresses (see: my Ann Taylor dress) and athletic wear and all kinds of other cool stuff, while not making movies. To me, that&#8217;s quite inspirational. I really hope I get to meet her one day, and in the meantime, I&#8217;m pretty excited about my Kate-Hudson-esque wardrobe additions!

I just really love this photo of them

May or may not have gotten a purse just like that but in black, on my NYC shopping trip. It&#8217;s a Kate Hudson appreciation life, you know how it is. And I&#8217;m still obsessed with her outfit here, even though I&#8217;m not even a jeans or trousers girl.

I hate when I think maybe I look alright and then someone takes full body shots and I feel like the ugliest swamp monster in existence. Like… does my chin look that awful from every angle? My arms? My hair? My LEGS!? God, I hate basically everything about my appearance after seeing anything outside a well posed, dimly lit selfie, urgh

One of the things I’ve really grappled with in Alien Pop Star is following my own good advice- allowing a lead character to be as nerdy, weird and in love as they want to be, while also being a woman. I’ve shied away from having female characters who actually really want a romance, in favor of women who would rather be alone, love their jobs or prefer the company of their friends. It’s been a challenge, and last night I even found myself hesitating for thirty minutes or so over whether Daisy could say something, but then I finally let go and let her be what she is. The girl wants to be in love. The girl *is* in love. I need to take my own advice and let my women be as hopelessly in love with someone as I let the men be. And it’s okay if I let myself seep into her.

FINISHED! 3:00am, baby. GOODNIGHT, WORLD!

So I’m about one paragraph away from finishing Dating an Alien Pop Star. CHEER ME ON!!!
