Beauty Buzz / Susan Posnick COLORCOATED® Mascara

susan-posnick-mascara-curves-and-chaos-5

I just might have a thing for mascara. Especially, one that packs a powerful punch. I’ve always had long lashes, but lately it seems like they’ve started getting thinner. That does not make me a happy chica. In this latest Beauty Buzz, I was sent this Susan Posnick mascara to review and I have to admit I am super happy with the results! Read more

Getting Active with Tek Gear / Giveaway

Kohls-Plus-Size-Fitness-3

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.

Live / Healthy / Strong

A few weeks ago, I posted “Let the Journey Begin to a Healthier Me,” detailing the beginning of my fitness journey. Then on Facebook, I asked if you guys were interested in me recapping what I’m up to. And some of you said yes, so here we go! Now, I’m in no way, shape, or form a medical professional. I’m only sharing what is working for me and my body. Just thought I’d throw that out there. And before we go any further, my goal, since day one is to live a healthy and strong life. It’s not and never has been about a number on the scale. Read more

Jennifer Lopez Plus Size

Where are my JLO fans? I know you can’t see me, but I’m raising my hand like crazy right now.

I had a chance to try out a few Jennifer Lopez plus size pieces and I only love her more now (if that’s even possible).  Read more

Make a Statement in Silver

You may have noticed that I have a thing for accessories. This is especially true when it comes to necklaces. They can make or break an entire outfit for me. When I accessorize, I tend to choose a piece that will standout—since my outfits aren’t very complicated. This spring and summer (AKA festival season), one of my favorites are on trend—silver statement necklaces. And I found 15 of them to share with you! Read more

In case you’ve been out of the loop, L.A. has been in a little bit of a heat wave. And when that happens, I tend to wear the comfiest thing I can find. Yes, this includes the right pair of denim. I have to stay cool the best way I know how people! Ideel (formelry Ideeli) sent me a few pieces from their new (and improved) plus collection on their web site. And it made the perfect casual look on a blazing Saturday afternoon. Read more

Plus Size Activewear On The Rise

How many of you are tired of people assuming that just because we wear plus sizes, that we aren’t active? I’m sick of it. You and I both know that’s a myth that needs to be squashed right now. Not only do we workout, but we also do yoga, lift weights, go hiking, swim, do pilates, attend dance classes and more. We not only want a healthy body, but we also want stylish and funtioning plus size activewear. Read more
