You Say It’s My Blogaversary: The Divine Mz M is 1 Year Old!

How time flies…!

One year ago, I was dealing with some severe back pain issues which limited the amount of activity I was comfortable doing.  Creating The Divine Mz M (formerly Curves Rule!) became a way for me to feel like I was still contributing something worthy. I had never blogged before, and I was worried that no one would bother reading anything I had to share.

Flash forward one year, I got my back surgery, the pain is greatly reduced, and The Divine Mz M has over 1,000 followers!

I have followers from all walks of life!

THANK YOU, my dear readers, for reading and sharing my fashion musings, my calls for more acceptance for all sizes, and for commenting on my posts!

As a big thank you, I’m doing a few giveaways over the next couple of months! Here’s the first one (and it’s a doozy!):

My friend Jessica (who lives in Paris – lucky!) is offering a Thirty One Gifts Makeup bag, which I am going to stuff with several sample sized makeup goodies! We’re talking the cool stuff from Birchbox and Ipsy, yo!

Me and Jessica!

Lots of space to hold travel size shampoo & lotion, too!

This makeup bag comes in other prints/colors, so if you are the lucky winner, I’ll let you know the choices!

And hey…if you are a Thirty One Gifts fan, or if you would like to get some VERY AFFORDABLE and PERSONALIZED gifts for your friends, check out my Online Party! LOTS of cool bags, totes, cosmetic bags, thermal lunch bags, for under $30!

Again, thank you all! If you’re a blogger, PLEASE leave me your links! Let’s make this next year the biggest year yet!

Love, laughter, and shoes –

A Milestone: My First Sponsor!

Happy Sunday, All! You know the saying, “timing is everything”? Well, just as I was thinking about getting a third tattoo for my upcoming birthday, Meg from TT Tattoo (The Temporary Tattoo Store) reached out to me about joining their Blogger Affiliate Program!

My first sponsor! Yay!!

Not only do I love a great tattoo, but I love the idea of custom designing your own tat that’s temporary! That way, you can test drive it before committing the time, pain, and money for a permanent one!

TT Tattoo has ready made designs as well that are sized for your ankle, finger, hand, neck, arm, leg…just about anywhere!

I’m a singer, and would rock this one:

And this one too, because I’m a crazy cat lady!

Love, laughter, and shoes (and tats!) –
