Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I haven't quite gotten around to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust. 

So if you've ended up here, hello and welcome. I still tweet from time to time and pin (see above) and if you want to see what I do, click on the giant box below that says VIEW MY WORK.

TTFN, y'all.

Crystal Renn is Hungry no more

Crystal Renn seems to be making waves in our weight-obsessed world with the launch of her book Hungry today. She's a Missississippi-born beauty who, like most models, starved and exercied herself silly in the pursuit of success and celebrity in the fickle world of fashion. Well done to her for becoming, in the wake of it all, America's highest-paid plus-size model and now an author. The subject (weight, both loosing and gaining it) is a tireless one that we simply can't get enough of. It's not news that models go to extreme measures to look the way they do, but hopefully this tell-all will have more meat to it than a 14 year-old on the cover of Vogue. We'll be ordering it from Amazon just as soon as we get through Jean Godfrey-June's 2006 novel, Free Gift with Purchase.

If the IP laws in your country permit it, watch Crystal Renn talk about Hungry on ABC here.

I've always been a fan of plus-size models! There's a great site with many images of plus-size models here:

They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
