Say it With Love

We all know that love is more than a four-letter word. It’s a feeling, an expression, and it’s inspires. And when you love someone, you make sure to tell them. Because you just do. I mean what would this world be like without it? I don’t ever want to find out.  I’ve rounded up some of my favorite Valentine’s Day accessories that are all about the love. You can wear them or gift them, it’s up to you. Because there are no rules when it comes to the “L” word. Read more

Celebrating 5 Years My Way! (Giveaway)

Igigi-Curves-and-Chaos-3

Curves and Chaos is officially 5 (insert confetti, champagne, and balloons here)! 2010 seems just like yesterday. Doesn’t it? 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.

The Hopeless Romantic

I’m in the mood for love, romance, and all things Valentine’s Day. Yes, I’m a hopeless romantic. What are you going to do with this girl? I can’t help it—I have a big ol’ heart. I just love love. And it’s during this time of the year, we’re usually bombarded with all things red. Instead, I’m easily inspired by the soft hues of pink, mauve, ivory, and gold. Read more

Yes, You Need Alone Time.

Yesterday, I had a moment to myself. A very deserved and welcomed moment that resulted in the most amazing nap. If you’re thinking that this post is only about this nap, please bear with me. Because, it’s so much more than that. I know a lot of us lead crazy busy lives. And sometimes we might feel like we don’t have time or even deserve a moment for ourselves—guilt might even play a part in all of this. Wrong my loves…you need this right now, more than ever.

I’m in a flirty and fun mood over here with Valentine’s Day on the brain. I’m not normally a lingerie kind of girl, so you’ll have to excuse the lack of chemises and corsets. Instead, let’s get inspired with a pair of sexy and fun plus size panties! Read more

Emme Opens Up About the Plus-Size Industry

When I look back and realize how far the plus-size fashion industry has come, I can’t help but think of those who fought and helped it evolve. Emme, known as the “first plus-size supermodel,” is one of those people. And she is far from finished.

She opens up about how she got started, her views on the plus-size fashion industry, and what she’s working on. Read more

Rediscovering Los Angeles with Jagger

farmers-market-los-angeles-14

I’m ready to make a confession. Please don’t judge me. I live in Los Angeles, one of the most amazing cities in the world. Instead of getting out there and exploring it, I’ve become somewhat of a hermit crab. I think there are tourists out there who’ve seen more of this city than I have. Ugh, no true Angeleno would be proud to admit that. That’s why I jumped at the chance to write this sponsored post in collaboration with the new Jagger app. I knew it was time to venture out of my apartment and reignite my love affair with the City of Angels. And this app is perfect for that!

Style Trend / Arrows

The arrow can symbolize a whole list of things. One of my favorites is it’s meaning of “direction.” I think that’s something some of us can use in our daily lives. Or maybe that’s just me. How about we just jump in and enjoy the arrow trend as it makes it way into our shopping lives. Read more

Inside the Mind of a Last Minute Shopper

A few years ago, I wrote about being a last minute shopper. It turns out, I’m still that person. I literally wait until the day of an event or an occasion to run to the mall to get an outfit together. As you can guess, it’s very exhausting! I envy those who plan outfits weeks or days in advance!

Pointed Pump Perfection

The minute my brain even thinks of spring, I just want to wear nothing but pointed pumps. Even though half the time they aren’t the most comfortable style of shoe for my feet. I still love them besides the fact. They go with practically everything. And they come in a range of styles, colors, and prices. Read more
