Love, Lust, and Simply Be

curves-and-chaos-20915-6

A few month’s ago, I found this really fun Jonathan Adler pouch. The minute I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I bought it and then I kind of forgot all about it. It basically got lost in the abyss that is my room. Then, as if it was meant to be, it turned up—a week before Valentine’s Day. I knew I had to take it out to play before the official day of love.

10 Favorites / Old Navy Big & Tall

I’ve always believed in investing in the basics and accessorizing or layering with stand out pieces. This is the same train of thought I use when I’m shopping for my hubby. It only makes sense. So, as I was looking around online, I came across the Old Navy Big & Tall section. I was impressed with some of the designs for men that they’re offering right now. Read more

Let the Journey Begin to a Healthier Me

As a blogger, writing about your health, fitness, and food habits can be a little tricky. In fact, my friend and I were talking the other day about being “that person.” You know the one who constantly talks about going to the gym, posts pics of their smoothies and meals, or even selfies when working out. Are you guilty of being “that person?” Well, I’m not ashamed to say that I just might become “that person” and not feel one ounce of bad about it.  Read more

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

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.

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. I don’t normally share interviews that I don’t do myself, but I felt like this is one you should read. 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
