Last night, I was laying in bed and I couldn’t sleep (again). I grabbed my phone and started messing around on Twitter. As I scrolled through the tweets, a phrase popped in my head. “Be yourself. Be confident. Be brave.” I tweeted it out, closed my eyes, and fell asleep. It was like I just had to get it out. This morning I wake up, and I realize how vital this phrase is in my life right now.

I may have mentioned this on my blog before, but spent a few years living in Germany. It was amazing. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved the fashion and shopping there. I envied the dark, chic, and polished style a lot of the women had over there. Carmakoma is the perfect example of the that. Just take a look for yourself. I was sent a sneak peek look into their Autumn/Winter 2013 Lookbook! Read more
I think this just might be my last post about Full Figured Fashion Week 2013. I’ve done quite a few! Well, since it’s probably the last (unless I come across more photos), I’d love to share some of the looks I saw on the night of the Indie Fashion Showcase. I’ve always been kind of a people watcher, and I can’t enough of other people’s personal style. This night I saw such an eclectic mix of fashion and it was awesome! Read more
Yes…I’m still going through photos from my time in New York! It’s like a never ending stream of photos. I’m not complaining one bit, I just want to make sure you guys get to see them all. Today, I want to share the rest of my pics from my Nina Shoes showroom visit. Are you ready for part II? (You can read part I here) Read more
I really wish the hubby would wear everything I picked out for him. But, it’s not a perfect world and he doesn’t. How dare he have his own personal style. On a serious note, finding clothes for him is a challenge. He’s super picky and let’s not even get started on the lack of Big and Tall sizes in our local department stores. Then I remembered JCPenney (a.k.a JCP) carries a decent selection online. Read more
Yesterday, I spent the entire afternoon in the scorching hot L.A. sun. I remember sitting there thinking how flipping hot it was. And how much I wished I was wearing a cool dress. Yup, summer is in full swing and all I want to do is wear summer dresses. Well…10 dresses to be exact. Read more
Oh summer…you’re here and some of us couldn’t be happier. OK…sometimes you’re kinda hot and just thinking about our beauty routine can get annoying. I’m just being honest here! So, when L’Oréal Paris wants to offer us a few summer beauty tips to make things easier and a giveaway as a bonus—I welcome them with open arms. Read more
No…I’m not a thug. And you’d might be surprised, I’ve never lived a thug life. I know…I know. Shocking! But, I am a fan of Tupac and totally believe he’s alive living on some island somewhere with Biggie. That’s just my opinion and yes—California Love is one of my favorite songs. Read more
It’s mascara testing time ladies! I love trying out new mascaras and sharing them with you. This Beauty Buzz review is all about the new L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Power Volume 24H Mascara. L’Oreal Paris sent me this item to review just for you! I’ve worn it a couple of times this past weekend and I’m ready to report. Read more
There’s that moment, when you put on an article of clothing and it just feels like it was made for you. It’s one of those “perfect fit” experiences. What’s even better is when you don’t think it will look good on you, then when you’re wearing it all of that just goes away. Sonsi, your “go to” online plus size fashion shop, sent me a few items from their (awesome) City Chic boutique and it was all I needed to make my weekend. Read more
When it comes to style on a budget, no one knows better than Shauna of the blog Penny Chic! This chick is so amazingly sweet! A few months ago, she sent me two dresses from her Little Black Dress Collection. It’s a collaboration between Shauna and Walmart that offer women of all sizes five basic LBD’s. Here I am wearing “The Skater” at the FFFWeek Indie Designer Showcase.
If there’s one thing I want to sound like a broken record about, it’s going to be protecting your skin from the harsh sun. Yes, again! As a Neutrogena Ambassador, I was more than happy to be a part of this sponsored campaign on behalf of Latina Bloggers Connect and Neutoregena. And as long as you read this blog, you are a part of my family. You’re a family member who will really love and benefit from my sun safety tips for healthy skin…especially in the summer! Read more
It seems like the photos from my NYC visit will never stop. I apparently took over 900 photos while I was there! That’s a lot to share with you. So, as long as I have them, I’ll share them here. A few of those photos are from the Evans Fall/Winter Preview. I was lucky enough to get an invite and check out what’s to come from the UK retailer! Read more
