Casually…Red, White, and Blue

Yes, you’re going to see a lot of red, white, and blue inspired looks as we get closer to this 4th of July weekend. I wanted to go a little bit of a different route to offer you some color inspiration. A lot of these pieces can be paired together or just worn alone. I chose a lot of casual pieces, because one…it’s summer…and two…it’s the weekend. And it’s going to be hot!I’m looking at this and I can’t help but think how much I love all of these colors right now. Are you going to honor our country’s independence…

Simply Yours and the Camisole

If there’s one thing I’ve noticed in the plus size online-shopping world, it’s that there are quite a few options in the U.K. I used to live in Europe and at that time, I didn’t do any online shopping for clothes. Today, you can find almost anything online, including lingerie. Sexy! Sexy!Simply Yours is one of those U.K. lingerie brands. I actually owned a plus size corset of theirs and I loved it! They make the cutest pieces. Anything from bras, knickers, hosiery, nightwear and more.I was looking at their web site today and I couldn’t help but notice something. Why…

COVERGIRL’s Queen Collection BET Beauty Lounge

Ever since I got back from NYC, I really haven’t been feeling too well. So, in order to try and feel normal, I attended an event on Sunday. COVERGIRL was out and about in L.A. showcasing their Queen Collection at the BET Beauty Lounge.It was held at the always fabulous, Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood and the glam was definitely on hand. This exclusive event featured celebrity make-up artist Ashunta Sheriff and actress Tika Sumpter. Both were so sweet! Ashunta gave us some amazing and useful tips, while she was getting Tika red carpet ready for the BET…

I can’t believe Full Figured Fashion Week is all done and over with. My week in NYC went by in a minute! Before I knew it, the runway finale was upon us.The event was held in a hotel located in Times Square and I can tell you the energy at the event was ten times more than what was going on outside.I know I might sound like a broken record, but I can’t stress how amazing it is to have all of these amazingly full figured, plus sized, curvaceous, shapely, or whatever you want to call it, women in one room drooling…

China Glaze’s Turned Up Turquoise

I’ve been craving a turquoise nail color and I knew China Glaze would have what I was looking for. They always do. I found Turned Up Turquoise over at Ulta for $7. It’s little more green in real life. For some reason it was hard to get the exact color in the photos. Something really interesting about this color is that it dries matte. I used the China Glaze No Chip Top Coat to add some gloss. I love that top coat.What brand makes your favorite turquoise nail color?
