Say Bye-Bye to Thigh Chafing

Sponsored by Bandelettes®. I will admit that I’ve been through the worst of the worst when it comes to thigh chafing. Especially,  when I wear my favorite dresses or skirts. In fact, I’ve actually dealt with intense pain and even scabbing. Believe me, it is not something I want to go through again. And it doesn’t matter what size you are, it is a lot more common than you think. Well, what if I told you there was a way you could prevent inner thigh chafing and look good while doing it? Yes, there is an actual way to do both.…

Stepping Into Spring

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by searsStyle. Any and all opinions are my own. My mom has always been a conscious shopper—always. Especially when we were growing up. She’s the ultimate deal hunter. So it was no surprise that she would always shop at places like Sears, for everything from our back-to-school clothes to classic white undershirts for my dad. Seriously, finding what we needed was never a problem. This seems to be the same story today, as searsStyle launches a plus-size line called Simply Emma. The new line features staples like lingerie, tees, and active wear, and trending pieces…

My Blushington Experience

It’s time for real talk guys. I’m no makeup pro by any means. I was that teenager whose mom didn’t allow her to wear makeup until she was a senior in high school. So I did what any teen would do, I snuck it on at school then took it off before I got home. And that was just lipstick and powder. In fact, I really never had anyone teach me how to wear it. Everything I know today is through learning from others. Oh hey beauty guru angels! So, when Blushington offered to do my makeup, I was practically…

Style Trend Going Green

There are a lot of reasons to wear green. Maybe it’s your favorite color and you just want to celebrate spring. Maybe you’re all about honoring St. Patrick’s Day. Or maybe you don’t need a reason at all to wear it. I think that’s my favorite reason. And since green is one of my favorite eye-catching colors, I had to go searching online for a few plus size styles. Well, 17 to be exact. All in a few different shades of green, in case you wanted some variety. Which of the green styles below are you in love with? 1. Lane Bryant 2. Lane…

Curvy Girl Travels Around & About San Diego

Being a native from Southern California is a true blessing. I can’t imagine another place I’d rather be from. I mean, where else can you visit the beaches, mountains, and the desert in one day? I’m serious. I can say that I’ve actually done this. And it’s all thanks to Kia and their latest Ride & Drive event that started in San Diego of all places. I had a chance to test drive the all new 2017 Kia Sportage and see parts of the surrounding area that I’ve never been to before. This compact crossover was the perfect companion on…

Latina Style Wars I’m in Latina Magazine!

I like to think I have my own special relationship with Latina Magazine. I’ve been a reader since it’s launch and have been around through all of it’s changes. It has transformed so much over the years. So, when they asked me to be a part of their Latina Style Wars feature, I didn’t hesitate to say yes! Are you kidding me? I was honored to share my plus size style with their readers. If you read the magazine, you know that this feature is all about how style trends are worn by different women. And in the April 2016…

Get Your Penney’s Worth with JCPenney

Sponsored by JCPenney. I am one of those people who knows the worth of every single penny. I can thank my mom and dad for that. There’s no way around it either. The hubby and I work really hard for every cent, so we make it count. I think that’s why I’m so impressed with JCPenney’s new promotional offer—”Penney Days.” They are offering select items available for just a penny. Yes, you read that right…a penny.
