Blogalicious Weekend 2010

Blogalicious Weekend is in full effect here in Miami! Yes, I am at another blogging conference and I am already having a lot of fun and it’s only day 1! I am so very lucky to be here. I am sending out a tremendously huge Thank You to General Mills and Que Rica Vida for their generous sponsorship. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be here. I also want to encourage my Spanish speaking friends with an iPad to check out the Que Rica Vida app. There are tons of delicious recipes. Lane Bryant also gets a huge hug…

Jean Paul Gaultier Adds Curves to the Catwalk

Jean Paul Gaultier paraded a few different shapes and sizes down his Paris Spring 2011 runway. Although there is a debate at the moment whether Crystal Renn should be considered plus size anymore, she did look stunning. Renn has walked for him before in a 2005 show and recently in his ads. The fabulous Beth Ditto and Marquita Pring rounded out the curves on the JPG rock n’ roll catwalk (no pun intended). You might recognize Pring from the V Magazine “Size Issue.” I think Gaultier is making an impression, but will other designers ever follow suit? What do you…

Splish Splash!

It’s finally raining in L.A.! Yay! I think I’m one of the few that actually love this kind of weather here in Southern California. I have this urge to go and jump in some puddles! But, I probably won’t without a proper pair of rain boots. Just take a look at some of the chic rain gear I found. Now, if you only I could find a decent plus size rain coat. Any tips?

Whitney Thompson wants Us to Speak Out!

My favorite America’s Next Top Model winner, Whitney Thompson was all smiles and motivation as she participated in the The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) 2nd Annual NYC NEDA Walk. With over 700 people in attendance, they raised approximately $140,000!!Thompson, a NEDA Ambassador, addressed the crowd about body image before the walk began. “I want everyone to know that they don’t have to conform to the images they see in the media. Real beauty is something that cannot be found in a magazine or on TV,” said Thompson. “I encourage all of you to speak out, write letters and insist…

Carmakoma’s “Carpe Diem” Collection

It’s all about the “Carpe diem” collection at carmakoma. Just take a peek at a few images from their fall/winter lookbook. Loving this collection. I know this lookbook might be a little late, but hey better late then never…right? According to the carmakoma web site “The woman in carmakoma’s new collection is ready to face the world. She welcomes any surprise the day might offer and does not hesitate to seize the moment and stand up for what she believes in.”This Danish designer brand “emphasizes the characteristics and qualities of the confident woman in a novel, luxurious look.” I like…

My New Boots…Boots!

I know you may all be tired of hearing about the Viva Fat Vegas conference, but I’m kinda bored waiting for my hubby to get home. And I just wanted to share the boots I picked up while I was there. I got these amazing faux leather boots at Torrid. Unfortunately, it’s been too hot to wear them. But, as soon as it cools down, you’ll see an outfit post. Promise!
