Meet the Diva

Hello!  I'm Hailey, the diva behind the curtain here at Discourse of a Divine Diva.

I reside near Portland, Oregon with my husband and our furry chihuahua child, Finnegan.  I work at home as a Blogger and Domestic Goddess attending to my little home and family, trying out new recipes, working on craft projects, and following my passions.

Starting this blog was my way of having my own little voice and an outlet to talk and share about things I love.  It continues to be a place I can share my thoughts and talk about my life, furkid(s), beauty products, fashion, recipes, crafting, and more.

I've learned a lot from the plus blogging community thus far and want to join in being a positive voice of body acceptance.  I'm tired of feeling ashamed of how I look just because it doesn't fall in the perimeters that society wants me to be in.  I am tired of all the women in my life feeling crappy about themselves because of the same pressures.  I want to be a positive voice in the lives of those around me and start setting a better example for my friends, sisters, and family.  I want them all to LOVE themselves and treat themselves with respect and kindness.  It is an on-going journey.

Fashion-wise, my style is casual and cute.  I love fun and flirty pieces, lots of color, and sparkles/sequins.  And I never leave home without accessorizing.

I hope you enjoy my blog.  I look forward to hearing from you via e-mail, social media, or here on the blog with questions, comments, or just to say hello and have a chat.

I am open to working with brands to promote and review products, host giveaways, and more. Please email me to discuss your ideas and options.  I've been a member of the Kiyonna Blogger Brigade since March of 2012.  I was also Catherines Style Ambassador for May 2015 and worked with the brand for their Art of the Mix and Denim Debut campaigns. 

For reference, in regards to outfit posts, I am 5'9" and currently wear a size 22/24.  My measurements are 52/49/58.

  1. I admire that you took the step for a blog and are love yourself for the person you are, not the size. I also admire that you try all sorts of fashions. Ones that I won't even CONSIDER. A legging? no way. I love the look of boots and tucked jeans and legging but I can't bring myself to show my knee chub or soft thighs. So I give you a big shout-out for being daring and looking great doing it. Thanks. Julie in Cleveland @Tribechic

    1. Thank you for sharing your opinion. I appreciate it. I used to think I couldn't do leggings or jeans tucked into boots either, but I am so glad I tried it. It has been such a wonderful thing letting those ideas fall away and opened up a lot more fashionably awesome looks for me. :-)

  2. I just discovered your wonderful blog and I am so excited that I did!! You have inspired me to start dressing cute and sassy again! :) I literally sped through your entire blog in one afternoon LOL just to get ideas on what I want to buy as well. I didn't even realize you were from the NW as well until just a bit ago ( I live in Gig Harbor, WA, near Tacoma)
    Thank you again for your awesome site!!!

  3. I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now and always look forward to seeing your outfit posts.
    I took inspiration from your video of your dressing room and began a project of my own to bring some order to my closets, jewelry, shoes, etc.
    Thank you for the work you put into your blog!
    Because of you and several other blogs that I read, I also have started wearing makeup again (when it is not too hot :) ) and trying to put together more colorful outfits that make me feel confident. So, thank you!

    1. OMG Beth. I don't know why I never saw this post until now. I am so sorry I haven't replied sooner!

  4. I just discovered your blog via pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/150589181265752180/) and saw in the info line that you and I are the same height and dress size. I love your style, your outlook on your body! Thank you for sharing your outlook and ideas. Being different then the societal 'norm' is not wrong and I'm so done with being shamed for being 'plus size'. I am happy, relatively healthy. I work out and run. I also want to feel and look cute, pretty, sexy... Thank you for being refreshing and inspiring!

    1. Wow, thank you so much, Jaime. It is comments like this that make so HAPPY and inspire me to keep doing what I am doing. I think if we keep working together to talk about our "radical" ideas of self-love and happiness and self-acceptance and we show society that plus size girls ARE cute and pretty and sexy and happy and healthy, then maybe one day it won't seem like such a "radical" idea to the majority of the population. :-)

  5. Good morning, Hailey! I just discovered your blog through withwonderandwhimsy (Liz) and I'm so happy I did! You have great taste in clothes!! And I love your attitude about your size, as I am the same size, but sadly, lacking 6" of your height!! I'm slowly changing my attitude to like (and hopefully LOVE) myself and not feel apologetic about what I look like. But since I've been overweight my whole life, there are a lot of years to make up for! I love that bloggers like you and Liz are open to trying new clothes and styles and that designers finally have a sense of how we'd really like to dress. AND that you're bringing those styles to us, with you wearing them, so we can see how we'd look in them too!!

    Keep up the great blogging and I look forward to reading more of them!
    Donna

    1. Oh my goodness! My commenting system never told me you left this comment. So first, I want to apologize for not having gotten back to you all this time!
      Thank you so much for stopping by the blog and all your kind words. I hope you are doing well on your journey to loving your body. It is definitely a process. I have been a big girl my whole life as well, with a mother who made sure I knew how "fat and lazy and worthless" I was every chance she got. Changing your mind set and the way you see your body (and even other people's bodies sometimes) is a big job to take on but one that is certainly worth it.
      And as far as I have come in my journey to love my body and accept it how it is, I still have crappy days where I hate on myself. It is easy to fall back into that negative space, but you have to fight through it! You can do it! I am happy to be among so many awesome women who are showing fashionable options for every BODY and doing so with helpful positivity!! Happy 2016!!
