I love that the color pink represents the fight against breast cancer. When I look at it, I see it as a brave, courageous, and strong color. That’s why all this month, I’m going to be giving away something pink each week.

This week Lane Bryant wants to give away two of their new Cacique Passion Lace full coverage bras in the color ‘Pink Candy’ in sizes 38D and 42D.

I know it’s only available to win in two sizes. The way I see it, if it doesn’t fit you, then why not win it for you mom, sister, cousin, best friend, or aunt.

To enter, leave a comment below, telling me which size you’d like (38D or 42D) and tell me what the color pink means to your or what you think it represents.

Just My Size Launches Belt Collection & Giveaway!

Metallic Silver Black Leopard Print Belt
Metallic Silver Black Leopard Print Belt

Looking for a belt that fits can be a pain in the butt, especially when you finally find one you like and it cost a lot more than what you wanted to spend.

I have done this for years, that’s probably why I only have 4 belts. Don’t get me wrong, I do want to wear more belts. They can add so much to a look, all while helping to show off that curvy figure.

Just My Size wants to help us with our belt problems, they have just launched a new belt collection. If you haven’t seen them in your local Walmart, it’s probably because they’ve only launched them in select stores nationwide.

You can find that list of stores here.  Make sure you “Like” them on Facebook, so you can see that list.

There are only four of the nine styles and they only cost $12! They are available is sizes 1X-4X. That makes me a very happy shopper.

I tried out the Metallic Silver Black Leopard Print Belt and Wide Stretch Belt. The quality seems great and I love the trend twist to each belt. I am a size 16/18 and the 2X in each belt fits well. The stretch belt does seem to run a little big for me, but that’s OK. I hate wearing a belt that’s too small. That’s not something you have to worry about with the Just My Size belt collection.

Do you want a belt? Today’s you’re lucky day. Just My Size wants to giveaway a belt to three of my readers!!

To enter, you should be following me via Google Connect (on sidebar). Just leave a comment below telling me which of the belts, you’d choose if you won. It’s that easy.

Win! Playtex 18 Hour Bra Review & Giveaway

I’ve said it many times before on this blog, but I’m always looking for a comfortable wireless bra. I get so irritated when a wire starts poking me! And because I am larger in the chest, finding a wireless bra that will actually support me and offer full coverage can be difficult.

That’s why I literally jumped at the chance to review Playtex’s 18 Hour bra. They sent me the Ultimate Lift and Support bra and their Seamless Smoothing bra. I know us large chested women are skeptical when it comes to support. That’s what you have me for. Here’s how I felt about each bra.

Oops…Don’t forget to “Like” them on Facebook and learn about their Get Swept Away contest!  The grand prize winner will receive a trip to Sanctuary Spa Kiawah Island Golf Resort with her BFF! Now on to the review…

Playtex 18 Hour Ultimate Lift and Support Style 4745

I was sent the Ultimate Lift and Support bra in nude.

First of all, yay! for the comfort strap. There’s nothing worse than a bra strap that digs into you. I know some of you want to look cute, but there’s no need for the pain. The strap is wide and thick enough to help relieve any shoulder pressure. They stay in place too.

As for the shaping, the bra does give you the natural shaping of your breast and there’s no wire poking! Woohoo! I accidentally fell asleep with it on the other day, and it didn’t bother me one bit.

Now, I could always use more lift, but this is one of the best wireless bras that’s I’ve tried.

Playtex 18 Hour Seamless Smoothing Style 4049

Out of the two bras, the Seamless Smoothing style is my favorite. It was also sent to me in nude.

I liked the shape this bra gave my chest. It gave me a smooth and natural look under my clothes. Which, I think would make a great t-shirt bra.

It has wide side straps to offer the much desired back and side smoothing. To be honest, I didn’t see my fat disappear, but there was some smoothing.

This bra also offers the wide and cushioned straps for shoulder comfort. And I noticed that their “No-Slip” straps do stay in place. I’d buy this bra for the straps alone.

Both bras are in my top five of wireless bras!

Would you like to try a Playtex bra of your own?

Beauty Buzz & Giveaway: Aromatherapaes

As I went through my “green” stage, I was on the look out for natural beauty products. Believe me, there are so many out there, but sometimes they just straight out don’t work. And the ones that do work are very expensive. If you feel the same way, then you are going to really like Aromatherapaes.

Aromatherapaes is a certified natural line of aromatherapeutic bath, body, and skincare products. The combine the most beneficial essential oils with the safest, natural ingredients.

Some of the essential oils they use are bergamot, chamomile, eucalyptus, lavendar, neroli, orange, and peppermint…to name a few.

I tried the Refreshing Moisture Lotion in Sweet Orange & Vanilla, Nourishing Moisture Body Wash in Sweet Orange & Vanilla, and the Refreshing Moisture All-Over Balm in Sweet Orange & Vanilla. I’m kind of in love with the All-Over Balm. I use it on my elbows and feet. Because you know how our feet get during the summer wearing nothing but sandals.

First of all, they smell incredibly good. And just knowing the company is cruelty-free makes me very happy. They don’t use sulfates, parabens, phthalate or formaldehyde donors, or ethoxylated ingredients (all the bad stuff).

Do you want to try it out for yourself? I have few travel size products for you.

Leave a comment below, telling me why you use all-natural products.

Rules: must be 18 years-or-older, your information has to be correct, only one entry per person, and you must claim your prize within 24 hours, winner will be chosen via random.org, and giveaway ends 8/22/11 12pm PST.

The Women with Control Giveaway

The debate of wearing shapewear continues. You either wear it or you don’t. I am very proud of my body and I wear shapewear. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Wearing it won’t make me loose 10 pounds, but it does smooth me out. With some women, that can definitely mean a boost in their confidence. We all know what it’s like to wear something we love and feel very comfortable in it.

Women with Control is all about making women feel good in their clothes. They are a lifestyle collection, comprised of pants, leggings, capris, dresses, skirts and tops that are specifically designed to control your body shape. Combining 85% cotton and 14% spandex, Women With Control has set itself apart from other brands on the market because most apparel only has 2-5% spandex, making the pieces unflatteringly hug the body rather than control and support your shape.

I was orginally supposed to review a few pieces, but they didn’t fit me. So, I want to give it away to one of you. I have their tummy control tank top and a pair of boot cut pant  Both in a size 3X (26-28).

As you can tell, the two basic pieces can be paired and mixed with almost anything in your wardrobe. You can find more of their pieces on QVC.com.

To enter, leave a comment below and tell me how you’d dress up these two basic pieces. Make sure you leave a valid email address or your entry will not count. 

Rules: You must be 18 yrs or older to enter. US residents only. You must claim your prize within 24 hours of notification. Winner will be cbosen using random.org. and will end 8/5/11. Shipping will take 4-6 weeks.
