FFFWeek: Kmart’s LYS Blogger Brunch

Tonight is my last night in New York City and I’m already going to miss it. But, I am really glad to get home and catch up on my one million emails and posts that I have to do.One thing I’m really looking forward to is hitting up my local Kmart to check out their LYS Love Your Style, Love Your Size line. Last week, a bunch of us were invited to a brunch that showcased their summer looks and even previewed a few of their fall pieces. I love these events!I will say that a lot of their stuff…

FFFWeek: The Pulse of the Plus Size Community Panel

If there is one thing I will take away from Full Figured Fashion Week, it has to be what I learned about our community. As part of The Fashion Front, we were involved in a lot of activities, but The Pulse of the Plus Size Community Panel was my favorite.The panel consisted of Jill Hutchison of Sonsi, Katheryn Finney The Budget Fashionista, Madeline Figueroa-Jones of Plus Model Magazine, Jennene Biggins the Founder and CEO Voluptuous Woman Company, Leslie Medlik of Redress, and was moderated by Comedian Erica Watson. We discussed so many things, but really focused on what our issues…

Full Figured Fashion Week Day 1

If you happen to see any words misspelled or words just left out of the sentence, it’s probably because I’m so exhausted.

TRI this ANGLE with Jewelery

Rings at Max & ChloeNecklaces at Max & ChloeI’m always on the look out for different pieces of jewelery. Especially, different shapes. And I’ve kind of been leaning towards triangles. It’s something a little different and always interesting. There’s nothing like adding a little bit of shape to your necklace, ring, bracelet, or your earrings. I love that black Marc Jacobs bangle. It’s on sale too! It probably won’t fit me because I have man hands! LOLDo you own any triangle shaped jewelery?

My New Love Affair with H by Halston

I’ve been looking for a magenta shoe and I’ve found it. Say hello to my new love affair. I really don’t need many words to describe the love for a shoe. It’s something you either understand or you don’t. And doesn’t a picture speak a thousand words? Just look at these gorgeous H by Halston pumps/wedges I bought at Baker’s yesterday. Yes, they were on sale. Sorry, they aren’t on the web site. I think I actually drooled when I saw the sole on these shoes.

Beauty Buzz: VISINE Soothing Wipes for those pretty eyes!

Sometimes, I get a little weird about my eyes. It could be when a makeup artist is putting on eyeliner, rubbing them when I’m tired, or I feel like there a loose eyelash roaming around in there, and especially taking off my eye makeup.I’ve tried the makeup up removing wipes, but sometimes they’ll burn my eyes. Does that happen to you? And what do you do when you have something irritating your eye? Do you splash it with water a million times, hoping it will come out?Thank goodness I don’t worry about that anymore. A few months ago, I got…

OOTD: Feeling a Little Blue

I’m really not sad. LOL. I’m just loving this blue top! I bought this at a yard sale that was held by Stylist Reah Norman. Thanks Reah! It’s by Daniel Rainn and it has these amazing ruffles and pockets. You know how I feel about pockets. I wore it to a high school graduation last night. Which had a whopping 680 graduates by the way and it was in a sports arena! WOW.Back to the outfit…I went simple with my jewelery, only because the color was so bold. My earrings are these cute little rhinestone bows I bought at Torrid…
