Shoe Fever: The White Sandal

Guess who went out and bought herself a pair of white sandals? Meeeee! Yes, I’ve been wanting a pair for a really long time and I finally got one. Now, normally I don’t like wearing white, because I always spill something on myself. LOL! But, these are shoes and I know they’ll probably be easy to clean. I know I’ll wear them out this summer too!

Wish List: Dorothy Perkins

I have yet to purchase anything from Dorothy Perkins. I know! I know! I really need to get on the ball with all these brands that I’m loving!! I sit here and drool about their clothes, I need to just hurry up and order something. Maybe it will be from my current “Wish List?” I really  need everything here. Each piece is so classic and some come with a little twist. And I’m loving the colors. This Apricot Drape Pocket Jacket is yummy!! Want it now!! You know it must be serious if I’m using two exclamation marks!! LOL!! All…

Beauty Buzz: ARTISTRY ‘Escape to Paradise’ Collection

Anything with “Paradise” in the name is all I need to hear. And ARTISTRY’s ‘Escape to Paradise’ collection reminds me of my kind of escape…a tropical island. The soft and radiant colors are nothing but beautiful. The collection consists of a Cheek and Eye Quad in Golden Glow and Fresh Radiance, Lip Gloss Duo in Tropical Coral and Pacific Orchid, and Eye Pencil in Island Violet and Lagoon. These are definitely luxury-quality cosmetics. I really like their “Get the Look” tutorials on their web site. You can choose from four looks-Seascape, Beachfront, Beachfront-Sunset, and Seascape-Sea glass.  They give you step-by-step…

Swimwear: BECCA ETC Animal Instincts

As you know, I had a chance to preview the new plus size BECCA ETC swimwear collection and I pretty much love it! And I wanted to share my favorite of all the lines-Animal Instincts. I guess I’m a sucker for python print and I’m in love with the colors too! There are so many different styles, as you can see on the beautiful Tara Lynn below. These are quality suits ladies! You are definitely going to get what you pay for. There are different options too-various two pieces, one-pieces, and cover ups. Some of the other bloggers that attended…

Events: BECCA ETC Swimwear Preview

Last week, Plus Model Magazine invited a group of us bloggers to preview the new BECCA ETC Swimwear plus size collection. If you’re like me, then you know how hard it is to find swimwear that not only fits, but actually looks trendy. And in a color other than black. We had a chance to meet the entire BECCA ETC team, including head designer Rebecca Virtue. Not only did we see the different styles of swimwear on the models, but we also gave our input on what we like and what we don’t like. For me, I’m concerned with support in…

OOTD: Fresh as a Flower

Just so you ladies know, I’m making huuuuuge strides (no pun intended) when it comes to wearing prints. Especially floral prints and bright colors. Yesterday, I attended an event (post coming soon) and I decided to wear this floral H&M pencil skirt that’s been sitting in my closet for a few weeks. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and I had to buy it. You’ve probably seen it on some other bloggers…cause it’s beautiful! I’m a size 16 and this is a size large. It fits comfortably (material has stretch) and I adore it. It…

Full Figured Fashion Week 2012 Industry Awards

OK…go ahead and yell at me. I know I’m a little late on this, but I’ve been a busy blogger. If you didn’t already know, I’m headed to the original Full Figured Fashion in New York City as part of The Fashion Front. I’m beyond excited (you’re going to hear that a lot!). Can you blame me? Will I see you there? Back to business…I wanted to share the FFFWeek 2012 Industry Awards recipients! Congratulations to you all! Well deserved!! Make-Up Artist of the Year – Tara Taylor Plus Boutique of the Year – Curvaceous Boutique Plus Designer of the…

When I first saw Dareen Hakim’s handbags at MAGIC LV, I knew there was something special about them. The shapes and colors instantly caught my eye.

Pennington’s 2012 Summer Look Book

Pennington’s, the Canadian retailer, has just published their summer look book and I’m looooving it. The colors are amazing, aren’t they? Yes, they do ship to the U.S.! I wouldn’t do that too you!! I’m not going to lie, I have my eye on a few things (when don’t I?), but I’m really interested in trying their intimates. I love the prints and colors. I do have a coat from them and it’s great! Let’s see what else I fall in love with! Are you a Pennington’s customer? What do you love most about them?
