I can actually remember a time when I felt embarrassed to be fat. That need to shrink when I was in a room full of my average to slim size peers. Wanting, wishing to be as stylish as the smaller girls were. Thinking I would never find my Prince Charming until I lost a certain amount of weight. Yea I remember that feeling…and I’m so pleased it’s gone. By my early to mid-twenties, I learned that there was a whole […]
I remember laying on the table at the orthopedist’s office with nothing but a gown and panties on; wondering why I didn’t wear a cuter pair of panties and thinking ‘It can’t be too bad.’ But in my heart of hearts I knew it was that bad. For over a year I’ve had a debilitating pain in my left hip that has caused me a limp, makes me cry and often time has resigned me to my seat more times […]
So I’m the type of person who wholeheartedly believes in “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. That’s why one day when I went looking for my regular Milani Perfect Conceal Foundation for my photo shoot with The Fluffy Girl Tribe and I couldn’t find it; I was hesitant to pick up something new but hesitantly I did. And that’s the story of how I got my hands on Maybelline’s Liquid Dream Mousse. Even though I found my regular foundation […]
So if you were on the blog this weekend; then you know I posted a Curvy Spotlight featuring a plus size fashion line called Liv & Kiss. As I mentioned at the end of that article, I had some pieces I was going to review. Welp, here I am! Ms. Whitney (the owner) told me to pick out a few pieces that spoke to me. I’m a lover of skirts so I chose 3 skirts from her line that were […]
So occasionally when I don’t feel like the rigamarole of YouTube editing; I go live instead. So enjoy! IF you’re not already following me on Instagram or Facebook c’mon what are you waiting for?? P.s It was later discovered the shade for the NYX lipstick was ‘Beauty Mark’. P.P.S You can’t see people’s comments lol but I’m responding to people on Instagram; when I downloaded it and uploaded on FB that stuff disappeared.
As a plus-size consumer, there is nothing I love more than having options. For a LONG time it seemed like fashionable plus wear was limited and too expensive. Suddenly, boutiques began to pop up everywhere and stores large and small alike began to carry up to 3x. And that was great…for a moment. Until I gained an unexpected 100 lbs and found myself no longer in the 3x (or 4x range for that matter) but in 5x territory. Once more, […]
In July at The Curvy Fashionista’s Style Expo, I had the opportunity to meet and connect with some awesome fellow bloggers. Among those bloggers was the sweet Ashley Wall of Simply Curvee. What stood out most to me at the time of our meeting was her down to earth demeanor despite having a pretty large following and being a paid sponsor for many notable plus brands. In my opinion, humility is an attractive but underrated quality in the blogging industry. […]
Whenever people ask “How are you?” I find myself wondering exactly how I should answer that polite greeting. You see, most of us know when people ask you that; they don’t mean it. It’s simply a way to say hello and appease a social quota that most of us feel obligated to ask. Because of this, I rarely go into how I’m REALLY feeling. Instead, I am just as polite and often respond with: “I’m enduring” or “I’m hanging in […]
