Over the past four years, Curves and Chaos have brought me so many amazing opportunities that I can’t even begin to explain how blessed I am to be able to do what I love. I started this blog as a way to share my passion for shopping and the hope that I can give the plus size woman the fashion options she deserved. Like me, this space has changed and evolved. And today I write about what I love and what I think you should know about in the world of fashion, beauty, and in life. It’s my space and I am so happy to have you here—reading, commenting, and hopefully learning. Once again…thank you from the bottom of my heart. And as a thank you, I put together a special giveaway for you!

One lucky winner will receive the following:

  • $50 Zelie For She gift card—Zelie for She is an amazing and one-of-a-kind fashion line created by Elann Zelie. She’s a designer (and my buddy) who is passionate about dressing a woman’s curves. She is currently working on another collection and you’ll be able to use this gift card for one of her new pieces! Lucky!
  • L’Oreal Paris gift bag—L’Oreal is providing a gift bag filled with some of their latest beauty products. I’ve seen them and I have a feeling you’re going to love products like Extraordinaire by Colour Riche®, Advanced Hairstyle, and the 1-2-3 Extraordinaire Gel-Lacque Kit—to name a few.

    “Doubt is a disease,
    it infects the mind
    creating a mistrust of people’s motives and ones own perceptions.
    Doubt has the ability to call into question everything you’ve ever believed about someone
    and reinforce the darkest suspicions of our inner circles.” I use this to remind myself, that sometimes you have to have faith in people and let go of your doubts.

    While I was watching my mother with terminal cancer sleep one night, I heard some on the television say, “Those things that cannot be remedied, must be endured.” It’s been a quote that I’ve lived by ever since. Thru losing my mother, my father and in 2010, my husband. I don’t know the movie I was watching, all I remember was the quote and that it was a black and white movie.
