Like Father Like Daughter / Father’s Day Giveaway

Sponsored by Kmart

I love my papa with all of my heart. He is such an amazing man, he has a big heart, he’s a hard worker, and he’s unlike any other. No, he’s not perfect and that’s OK. On this Father’s Day, I’m reflecting on our relationship. And it’s so very different today, compared to when I was a kid. We weren’t very close. I guess you can say we didn’t have that typical father and daughter relationship. In fact, it wasn’t until I was in my late teens when that all changed for the better.  Read more

When was the last time you went shopping for workout gear? I’ve written about the struggle when it comes to finding plus size active wear. Yeah, it bites. Well, long gone are the days of working out in a t-shirt and sweatpants that weren’t meant for today’s active woman. I was recently introduced to Kohl’s Tek Gear collection and I am officially a fan.

I want to say time flies when you’re having fun, but I don’t think that phrase will work here. This Curves and Chaos journey has been so much more than “fun.” If you would’ve told me then, what I know today—I would have never believed you.

Conffianz / Skin Care Giveaway (Closed)
