I just finished watching the season premiere episode of Project Runway and I can say it was one of my favorite episodes EVER. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, without access to the internet—you know that plus size indie designer Ashley Nell Tipton is a contestant this season. And in my opinion, she is the best thing to happen to Project Runway. Read more
We’ve all seen the WEN Hair Care commercials with founder Chaz Dean—haven’t we? He’s a Hollywood celebrity hair stylist with a booming salon. Seems like an awesome product. But his promise of “Say Goodbye to Lather™” has me a little worried. I mean…no lather? I guess I had to try the WEN Cleansing Conditioner out for myself. I was sent a sample and put it to the test.

It’s summer and it’s hot. Do we really need any more reasons to head to the beach? I don’t. And neither do Ivory of IvoryJinelle.com and Tiffany of LaceNLeopard.com.

Didn’t I tell you guys I was obsessed with olive? This is my new favorite color, after wearing black of course. It’s such an awesome color that can transition easily from summer to fall. Speaking of summer, it’s been so hot here in L.A. lately, that I have my eye on all things to keep me cool. And this Simply Be olive plus size dress was perfectly perfect on a 90 degree day.

I have a little blogger confession. Sometimes, I have a little bit of a problem reviewing beauty products on time and in season. For example, I was gifted this ColourPop In Bloom collection ($39) by Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg in the spring. It is now the middle of summer and I’m just getting around to trying it out. Oopsie…I don’t really follow makeup trends anyways, so I guess it’s no biggie. These shades are always in season for me!

I’m getting back into the swing of things. And by things I mean exercising again. It’s been a long few months since this girl got her workout on. Ever since I severely sprained my ankle in that surfing accident (read about it here), I haven’t been able to get back to my fitness regimen. I’ve actually tried a few times, but I always ended up with a sore ankle. So, basically this is what my workouts looked like. Read more

If you’re anything like me, you’re a little on the fence when it comes to the boho-loving paisley print. I understand that not everyone is a fan. For me, it really depends on the style of the piece. I need something that’s going to be a little more on trend. From kimonos, dresses, tops, and even a skirt and a jumpsuit—here are a few styles I really kind of need to add to my wardrobe. Read more
