Sneak Peek Lane Bryant Summer 2016 Lookbook

If you’re cold right now and day dreaming of summer, then you’re going to love all of the brightness I’m about to share with you. You can thank the Lane Bryant Summer 2016 Lookbook. It was sent over to me yesterday and I am loving a lot of these pieces. What else is new? I’m here for all of the flowy and boho-inspired styles. Again..what else is new? As you’ll see below they really jumped into the bright and bold colors, along with prints and different textures. You’ll even find looks from their accessories, Cacique, swimwear, and the Livi Active…

Hola…It’s Me…

Sorry, the title of this post is a bad play on Adele’s hit song. I couldn’t help it. “Hola!” is written across my chest and I do kind of love her. I’m waiting for her to be my best friend by the way. Just putting it out there. Anyways…I’m so easily distracted. Saying hello is one of the easiest ways to start communicating with others. No matter how much technology and social media changes, there’s always time to say hello. Just look at this cute Hola T-shirt Mixed Up Clothing sent me. The minute I saw it, I knew I had to have…

MDMflow Lip Crush

Pucker up and get ready for your new lip crush—MDMflow. Inspired by 90’s Hip Hop culture, this London-based premium beauty brand is the creation of Florence Adepoju. The cruelty-free and handmade lipsticks come in some seriously bold and fun shades, including Vamp (which I need in my life ASAP). I can’t get enough of the gold tubes it comes in. And I love how each of these hot shades has a little story of how it was inspired. I personally had a chance to try out three shades: Supreme, Bossy, and Di La La. Each one is creamy when applied, but comes to an…

Breaking Rules with Leota

We all know that fashion rules no longer apply. If you’re living by them, feel free to release yourself from these unrealistic standards. As plus size women, we have been told more than once that we shouldn’t wear stripes. Blah…blah…blah…seriously? All I have to say is, give me all of the stripes please. Leota, a premium fashion brand focused on designing “Feminine, Sophisticated, and Effortless” pieces reached out and offered to send me one of their dresses. Of course I chose the one striped to the max. The Mia in Stripe dress is bold, yet versatile and very comfortable—three of my…

Desert Adventure

If there’s one thing I love more than writing, it’s the freedom of being able to travel. Ask my dad and he’ll tell you the story about this little 2-year-old, yelling “let’s dooooh” whenever someone grabbed their keys. He said I was always trying to leave. Which I did a couple of times…but that’s a whole different story. Well, I can say that things haven’t changed much. Whenever I have an opportunity to travel I take it. Remind me to tell you about my first time visiting New York City in only 72 hours. I’ve learned that traveling is so…

6 Years Later | Blogaversary Giveaway (Closed)

This is my first post of 2016! We all know I don’t make new year’s resolutions. It’s just not my thing. I try to live my life day to day. Every morning I wake up, I have another chance to accomplish any goal I put in front of myself. But, there is one thing I have been doing every January for the past six years, it’s celebrating my blog’s birthday (AKA blogaversary)! Since 2010, I have been sharing my journey with you guys and I don’t regret one word I’ve written here. And just like this blog, I feel like I…

Below you’ll find everything from sequins, fringe, black on black, pops of bright colors, and even polka dots. Yes, I’m such a…
