OOTD: Cafe Magazine, Melissa, & Me.

Yesterday, my husband and I had the pleasure of being photographed for Cafe Latino Lifestyle Magazine by the talented Melissa Valladares. It’s a contemporary Latino magazine published in Chicago. I’ll tell you more about it when it’s published. I had no idea what to wear. I was stressing out and very nervous, but then I thought…I’m just going to be comfortable. So, this is what I wore. I love the detail on the back of the top. Oh, excuse my bangs, I’m having a love/hate relationship with them right now. They don’t like to cooperate. The shoot was fun and…

Beauty Buzz: Fuchsia Lips

Be bold!In your face!Popping with color!Nothing but fuchsia love for your lips!Yes, I’ve lost it for the “right now” hot lipstick color! Pull out your fuchsia lipstick.I was all over Target’s beauty section looking for the right shade. But, I was being really picky. And I’m allowed to be; it’s part of my beauty rights (I just made that up). I didn’t find what I was looking for, but today I’m heading to the drugstore on a fuchsia search.Will you be part of the bold beauty babes and give fuchsia lipstick a try?

Love Your Body Day Ad: Nude and Beautiful

I was about to go to sleep, when I saw a link on twitter to these amazingly beautiful photos of the extraordinary Chenese Lewis and Whitney Thompson. You might know Chenese as a model and the host of Plus Model Radio and Whitney as the first plus-size winner on America’s Next Top Model. They’ve come together nude to promote Hollywood NOW ‘Love Your Body Day’ in West Hollywood on October 22-24, 2010. Whitney is the celebrity host of this year’s events. According to their web site:”Love Your Body Day Weekend is an annual event where women of all sizes come…

My Favorite Fall Trend: Gray Suede

Pumps by Cole HaanTotes by Dooney & BourkeOne fall trend I am looking forward to wearing is any bag or shoe in gray suede. I’ve had my eye on this trend for a really long time. I love this look and I am currently on the hunt for a few items. I’d love to pair it with an all-black outfit. I can’t wait for this heat wave to be over! L.A. needs to cool down! I need fall weather here A.S.A.P!

Review: ASSETS Unbelievable Underwear Super Control

To use shape wear or to not use shape wear…that is the question.Well, it is the question among us body loving curvy gals! I’ve heard the debate and honestly I’m kind of confused by it.I tell myself that I love my body in all of its glory, but I do own a pair of Spanx (pre-fat girl body acceptance) and I received this pair of ASSETS Unbelievable Underwear Super Control ($18) at the BlogHer Expo.I was very curious to try them out and after having them for a couple of weeks, I wore them. Yes, I was still fat after…

Handbag Delight: Juicy Couture

This past weekend was kind of strange. I went shopping and I didn’t buy myself a thing. Yes…you read that right. I didn’t buy myself anything. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I’m not going to lie, I’m a little disappointed in myself. Maybe, it’s the heat. It’s making me delirious. Excuse me a moment. I’m going to try and figure out what’s wrong with me. Take a lookie at these Juicy Couture bags, while I sort things out.

Crystal Renn in Chanel Ad

I came across this Chanel ad, of the beautiful Crystal Renn, on the über fab Madison Plus blog. This ad, according to The Cut, is being used for a store reopening on Spring Street in New York. While many question whether Renn is still considered a plus-size model, The Cut is questioning why they decided to crop out her body. It’s a valid point, being that Jean Paul Gaultier ad’s included her entire body in his fall campaign.What do you think?Is this a big deal or are some making a big deal out of nothing?

Beauty Buzz: essie’s fall collection

Oh essie, I remember the first day we met. My best friend introduced me to you four years ago. Your delicious colors made it’s way onto my nails on the day of my wedding. My nails have never been the same. And now you come out with this rich fall collection and I love every single color? You’re too much. I guess I’ll have to wait until September 1st, to get my hands on you. Until then essie…
