And of course when decorating my place I wanted some original art pieces (uh hello, my blog name is The QUIRK Life).

My place isn’t completely decorated but it’s come a long way in the last 6 months and I want to share what I’ve learned. Here are 6 ways that I’ve saved money while getting my place in order. Continue Reading

10 Most Recent Camera Roll Pics

We all know that you can learn a lot about a person by looking through their internet browser history (note to self: update will with specific instructions about this).

Anyway, another method to see into a person is to go through their camera roll. Phones are generally password protected and therefore can carry a lot of insight of a person’s mental. I gave you a glimpse into my thoughts before, but here are my 10 most recent camera photos. Continue Reading

Why Plus Sized Women ROCK!

Yup, those are my thick thighs and fat feet in the photo. And?

Body shaming – people still do that? Good thing we don’t care. It’s taken society way too long to realize that our bodies are pretty amazing. Really, what was the hold up? There are so many reasons why we R-O-C-K! Continue Reading
