Bali Comfort-U Back Review

Finding the perfect bra is probably one of our biggest headaches. Especially, if you’re a curvy woman with a larger chest.

So, when I was contacted to try Bali’s Comfort-U Back bra I was pretty excited. This new line features the beautiful Helena Christensen and boasts about the straps and the back of the bra staying in place. You know I had to try it out.

They sent me the Flower Bali Underwire bra. I actually wore this bra on my birthday and I was quite surprised at how comfortable it was. The straps never fell down and the back of the bra never rode up once, I guess I can thank the wide side straps and U-shape for that.

I wasn’t spilling out all over the place either. The only issue I had was the actual shape it gave my breast. I guess it’s natural, but I felt like they had a little bit of a cone shape. I would prefer them to have more of a round form.

As you can see in the pics above, the quality of the bra was great. It’s a very basic white bra with a simple floral design. They have a lot of different styles if this one isn’t for you.

I am big on comfort and affordability when it comes to undergarments. The Comfort-U bras have suggested retail prices of $29 to $36. That sound pretty good to me!!

Whew!!

What an amazing birthday weekend! I am so blessed to have such a

wonderful husband, family, and friends.

I spent the first part of the day just being a bum. My hubby bought me some red roses (awwwwww). Later that night, we made our way to a cousin’s birthday party. They even sang happy birthday to me…it was too sweet. We partied until 3a.m.! I was paying for that this morning.

I got $150 worth of gift cards…which I can’t wait to use by the way. So excited to go shopping! Of course I’ll keep you updated on what I buy. My bff sent me a little birthday package. The necklace (left) I’m wearing in the pic was part of my gift and she also bought me these beautiful silver tear drop earrings. She’s the best!!

Today, we had a BBQ and we had some friends come over. We watched the Lakers and the Dodgers win! Yay! Now, I’m sitting here yawning every 30 seconds. I’m pooped! I also wanted to say thank you to all of you who sent me birthday wishes. It means so much to me. Thanks!!

Wish List: Evans

Why won’t these amazing European stores, like Evans, open up boutiques in the states? Whyyyyyyy?

I am so skeptical when buying something online, because I don’t get to try it on. But, that doesn’t really matter anyways because I am on my current shopping freeze. Blah!!

Anywhoo…that won’t stop me from lusting after great fashion pieces, like the ones I’ve chosen from Evans below. Sigh…

Happy Birthday Arlene!!

I would just like to take a moment to wish my beautiful cousin Arlene a very Happy Birthday!! I love this chick! She is an amazing, creative, smart, and hilarious person! I don’t know what I’d do without her in my life. Love ya cousin!!

Curvy Sports Fan

“It’s time for Dodger baseball!”

Yes…I am a Los Angeles Dodger fan and if you’re not one…I’m so so sorry. Lol.

This is me, yesterday, at the Dodger opener. It was a beautiful day. And of course we won!

As a curvy sports fan, its hard to find sports gear that fits. I am forced buy a mens medium or large t-shirt and we all know the quality of the mens shirts are not very female-friendly.

Today, I am a happy sports fan! I have found a few Dodger items in Plus Size (XL-4X)!! I love the touch by Alyssa Milano line. Too cute. There aren’t many options and some are a little pricey, but I guess it’s a start.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a Dodger fan. They have other teams available…but they don’t really matter. :)

Road Trips and Birthday Suits

I just returned a few hours ago from my second road trip to Arizona, two weekends in a row. My uncle is very ill and we went to visit him. I am pretty pooped but the 7 hour drive is worth it. I love that guy!! That’s why there haven’t been any posts since last week. Just thought I’d let you guys know.

On a brighter note, my birthday is coming up this weekend and I would love to go out. In case I do, I am on the search for a party dress. Something in black and fun…but not too revealing. What do you think about these two? The first one is from Forever 21 and the second is from Torrid. It has to be something I can buy this week. Decisions…decisions.

**Update: I was just informed by my bestfriend that I am not supposed to be shopping. :( So…no new dress. My bday plans have been canceled anyways. But, thank you for all the comments. Lol.

Boring Undies?

Today I realized…I have boring underwear. Ok, I realized this while I was looking through Torrid’s fun, colorful, and sexy intimates selection. I’ve never really thought of it and this may be a tad personal. Torrid, thank you for selling cute undies and making me realize mine are boring. Plus, they are all under $8 each and some are even on clearance. Oh…if you’re going to buy some online…there’s a coupon code at the bottom of this post. You’re welcome. :)

Sex and the City 2 Trailer

Sex and the City has been a love of mine since I can remember. Yes, I watch the late night reruns and yes, I’ve even imagined which one of the ladies I’m most like. Who hasn’t? I really liked the movie, but it wasn’t the best. So, I wasn’t too excited about Sex and the City 2…that was until I found out Aidan is in it!! He was my favorite boyfriend of all!! John Corbett is to cute!! I can’t wait to see it! Here’s the trailer:

Wish List: ASOS

I don’t think this budget thing is working, because now all I want to do is e-window shop. And then I drool over pieces like this from ASOS. Thank you ASOS for making me drool. Thank you very much.

Summer Trends: The Maxi Dress

This summer trend will not only have you looking chic, but it will keep you comfy! I love that combo, don’t you? With its floor touching length, the maxi dress was made for me…and you. It’s so versatile too. You can dress it down with a pair of flip flops or dress it up a bit with a cute wedge or heel. If you wear it into the evening you can throw on your favorite cardigan or Pashmina wrap. Oh…if you were wondering I’m loving #9!

My golden rule: If the dress has a vibrant print, make sure to keep your jewelry simple.
