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 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…

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.
