The “PlusIsEqual” movement strives to give women — of all sizes — equal representation in the media. “Sixty-seven percent of U.S. women are size 14 to 34, but they’re underrepresented on billboards, magazines, TV … everywhere,” according to the brand.

We love to support entrepreneurs! Take a look at this new product!

Wrapurse, is a new product and company that has invented a designer cover that shields the bottom of your handbag!

We have tried this product first-hand and it truly does protect your purse!  I am so happy that I did not have to put my purse on the restaurant floor.

Since women spend billions of dollars each year on handbags! You know you do!  It is a good idea to protect them.

Wrapurse is a product of convenience, reusability, versatility, and protection! It folds into a small, lightweight carry case, so it can go wherever you go. The high-quality, water-resistant fabric allows you to easily wipe off any dirt or hand-wash the whole thing. Available in four different sizes, it will fit any purse, tote, or diaper bag. By keeping them clean, dry, and germ-free, Wrapurse will improve the longevity of your handbags.

Colors available are merlot, chestnut, and midnight black. Depending upon the size, Wrapurse retails for $16-$22.  This product is available online at www.wrapurse.com.

As a single mother of two active boys, Cyndi Heap witnessed the ruin of many expensive accessories due to muddy soccer fields and grimy baseball bleachers. As a result, she founded and designed Wrapurse. With her campaign, she hopes to further establish the brand as well as give back. Dedicated to her son with special needs, Cyndi will donate 10% of the funds raised to Understood.org, one of the programs at the National Center for Learning Disabilities.

Wrapurse is Cyndi’s stylish solution to your handbag troubles and so much more, and she would like to share with you!  Check out her campaign on indiegogo.

Dear Fat People? Really?
icon1 BlackCatPlus | icon2 BlackCatPlus News | icon4 September 11, 2015| icon3No Comments »

Ok, this is the third version of this post….

I kept coming back to this topic and saying No, that is not it…Nope not there yet. No, I sound angry…that is not it.

But here it is as matter of fact as I can be.  This time without pictures just words, my opinion because stuff like this makes me very very sad…

I am never applauding when someone loses a job, but in this case….the loss of a job or being considered for a job, may not be the biggest thing she will lose.

Maybe she wanted fifteen minutes of fame?   Maybe she thought she was being funny?  Maybe she thought? I don’t know what she thought but she said she was poking fun at people to bring them together?

In the six-minute diatribe, “Dear Fat People,” Nicole Arbour claims that fat-shaming is “not a thing,” suggesting people made it up. She even tries to humorously encourage obese people to lose weight, but not everyone thought her joke was funny.  I won’t show the video  here, I am sure you have seen it.  I won’t bore you with the tirade of swear words she uses to sound cool, maybe?  I don’t know.

I agree that she has the right to express her opinions and so also has to accept any negative or positive consequences as a result.

She told Time Magazine she would not apologize for satire.

Director Pat Mills said Arbour was in discussions to choreograph dance movie Don’t Talk to Irene.     However, when he saw the video, he decided he didn’t want to work with her.

Mills said, “A lot of people think it’s okay to publicly shame fat people and we need to fight back and say this is just as offensive as homophobia and just as offensive as sexism,” he said. “If you say these things, you should lose a job.”

Arbour also said she was not attached to the movie.  Well, ok.

It saddens me on a personal level when people are not tolerant of others’ views, others’ actions, others’ wishes, and really are just not tolerant of who others are.  We do not have that right to judge people we do not know when we have not lived in their shoes.

Maybe it is more education on tolerance, diversity, acceptance?  I don’t know…but this came out of the blue..in a social media world, sometimes things are better left unsaid.

Maybe Arbour learned the power of a social media rant?  3 million views.  Congratulations.  It amazes me that she played the GENDER card by saying if she were a man it would not have been an issue?  Wow, that’s old.  The early feminists, trust me, did not EVER fight for your right Nicole to degrade people and disguise it as discourse.  (Look that up)

You have time now.
