It’s summer and it’s hot. Do we really need any more reasons to head to the beach? I don’t. And neither do Ivory of IvoryJinelle.com and Tiffany of LaceNLeopard.com. We love the sand, the sun, and we want to hang out. That’s why we are getting together for Heatwave: A Curvy Beach Meetup—and you’re invited! Read more

From day one, this blog has been my space. All about the things I love and who I am. There’s no reason for me to try and be anyone else. And if there’s one thing you should all know, and probably already do know about me, it’s my love of sports. Especially, my love for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The hubby and I are proud season ticket holders. So, when Mexican beer brand Montejo offered this amazing opportunity, I kind of screamed “Yes!” Read more

The New York City whirlwind that is Full Figured Fashion Week ended just as I imagined it would—an evening bursting with plus size fashion on the runway. On this night retailers and boutiques had a chance to show us their latest and favorite styles. And we even had a performance from The Glamazons. A big thank you to Fit For Me, the premier sponsor, for having me as one of their blogger ambassadors! I had a seat in the front row with an amazing view of the runway. Read more

When I first started this blog in 2008, I remember searching online for plus size brands to feature or shop from. That’s when I found Maurices, a fashion retailer specializing in women’s fashion in a range of sizes. Back then, they had a very small plus size collection. Today, they offer so many more options, including activewear and swimwear. They recently invited me to attend a spring event they were hosting in Downtown L.A., of course I had to go! Read more
A few month’s ago, I found this really fun Jonathan Adler pouch. The minute I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I bought it and then I kind of forgot all about it. It basically got lost in the abyss that is my room. Then, as if it was meant to be, it turned up—a week before Valentine’s Day. I knew I had to take it out to play before the official day of love.

I consider myself a denim kind of lady—wearing it all of the time. Truth is, I don’t wear dresses very often. But, when L’Oreal Paris invited me to attend the Latin Grammys in Las Vegas, I made sure to find one that added some much needed sparkle. I had a few outfits ideas in mind for the biggest night in Latin music. It was this look that made the cut!
