And it doesn’t help that we are bombarded with messages that tell us what we should look like and how we should dress. Believe me, I work really hard to not fall into the trap myself. But, I’m only human. Sometimes, I need to remind myself to just be me. Read more

Let’s be honest, allergies suck. If you suffer from them, then you know what I’m talking about. I developed mine later in life. I often deal with sinus pain, itchy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing (to name a few symptoms). Whenever my allergies hit, I don’t even want to get ready in the morning. Because, I know I’ll be dealing with what they call ALLERGY FACE®—puffy eyes, redness, watery eyes, and even dark circles. But, these are problems of the past. Because, I keep five of my beauty must-haves ready to go! Read more

As much as I love playsuits, I’m surprised I don’t have more of them. IGIGI sent me this beautiful Charmaine jumpsuit and I’m obsessed with it. When I look at it, I see a blank canvas. One that’s easy to dress up or dress down. Not all plus size jumpsuits are versatile like that. This is one you’ll be able to play in almost anywhere.
Trends come and go. We know that. But, I can tell you I appreciate the trends that cater to the simplistic side of my personal style. You know I’m not one to overdo it in that department. That’s I why I totally love the plus size minimalist trend that seems to be gaining some speed. I mean, it’s always been around, but the minute spring and summer comes a long, it seems to jump out at me. Read more
