Hello! My name is Monique Frausto and I’m the founder of this little lifestyle blog! I live in Los Angeles, but I love to travel. I’m a full time blogger and freelance writer. I created Curves and Chaos in 2010, because I love writing about fashion, beauty, and my life! Plus, I  wanted to share where us plus size girls could find the latest fashions and news.  As of January 1, 2015, I will only feature cruelty-free beauty products.

For access to my freelance writing portfolio, view my Contently profile here.

I am available for freelance work, hosting and attending events, and more. I love working with fashion and beauty brands! If interested, please feel free to contact me. 

Find me on Babble!

    SO I just discovered your blog on a Torrid facebook post! I wanted to share an awesome store with you that opened up a few years ago in Redmond, Washington close to where I live. It is called Trade Chic and it is a plus size consignment and retail clothing store that imports most of their styles from the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. I thought I’d share the link with you, as one curvy shopper to another. I do not work for them, but I know the owner. Just have to represent!

      Thanks Jessica! I’m always looking for new places to shop! I will add them to my shopping directory.

    I discovered this blog after reading your defense of Adele in a UK paper. I’m so glad I found it! I was losing hope thinking that the only curvy woman around was Adele, but look how fabulous you are! I can be fabulous too! I’m going to go put my best outfit together, just coz I can :)


      Thank you Hayley, you’re too sweet!

    Hello Monique! First of all I want to say thank you for adding me to Blogs By Latinas. I’m still a fairly new blogger and discovering many things and looking to make friends. I’m so glad I came across this blog of yours! I’m now following and I can’t wait to read more of your posts and especially your adventures. (I’m new to the Los Angeles area so getting ideas of what to visit from your blog will be great). Have a great week :)
