When I tell you I have wise friends, I really do! Take my beautiful friend Ivory. She taught me to not be afraid to shop in the straight size section. Just because it says a size on the tag, doesn’t mean anything. I’m glad I listened to her. That’s how I found what has become my favorite spring sweater.
I know we often complain about the lack of fashionable plus size clothing. But, the truth is, if you live in the U.S or U.K. we have the best selection in the world. That’s my opinion. I bet we never think about how plus woman in other countries deal with the lack of fashion where they live.
Of all the things I love to do in this world, sweating is not one of them. Especially stress sweating, which smells worse! I know why our bodies do it, but that doesn’t make it any cuter. In fact, when Secret reached out to me for this sponsored post (with a giveaway), I knew I had to jump right in, say yes, and share my tips on how to fight stress sweat!
For the longest time, I was afraid to wear stripes. Like a lot of women out there, I thought they would make me look fat. You don’t even know how many times I hear other women say that. Well, here’s a news flash for you…I love stripes and could care less about them making me look fat, skinny, orange, or purple. I dress for me.
Geez! It’s been a while since I’ve written up a “5 Questions” feature! Sorry about that. Let me make it up to you. As a Neutrogena Ambassador I get access to the world of Neutrogena, this includes being able to introduce you to amazing people like Makeup Artist Elizabeth Ulloa. Read up on this Los Angeles beauty pro below!
I know I’m on vacation right now, but I had to post another outfit post from Miami. There’s just something about a beach location that just screams maxi dress. And when you’re on the beach and you have to attend a pool party, you kind of want to dress up just a tiny bit. That’s where this Torrid look came in.
Here’s a little something you might not know about me. I’m very happy being a behind-the-scenes kind of person, but I also love to plan parties. That’s why I was pretty excited and nervous at the same time when Latina Bloggers Connect asked me to host one of their Jergens Crema Live parties.
I love social media, well you already know that because it’s pretty much my life. When I was at a conference this past weekend, I was able to live through my friend/fellow blogger Jasmine’s Coachella experience. I’m not one bit jealous…OK that’s a lie. Anyways, as I sat through her music loving moments, I couldn’t help but wonder what my favorite outdoor concert style trend will be this summer. And yup! I found it…
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I love when brands decide to give back to the community, especially when it’s dedicated to empowering women and girls with education, resources, job skills and work experience. A big thank you to Bobbi Brown for her Pretty Powerful campaign that does just that. It’s all aimed at helping them “be who they are.” I love that!
