Basically Comfortable (OOTD)

When it comes to my personal style, I never put comfort on the back burner. I just can’t. No matter where I’m going, my outfit has to be comfortable. That’s just how it has to be. It’s something that took me a long time to learn, unfortunately. It comes with age I guess. And that’s perfectly fine with me. Being comfortable equals happiness. And I love being happy with my fashion choices. 

Recreate Queen Latifah’s People’s Choice Awards Makeup

I think we can all agree that Queen Latifah looked stunning last night at the People’s Choice Awards. I love how glam (and comfortable) she looked as she picked up her award for Best New TV Show Host. It was well deserved if you ask me. Queen’s stylist Timothy Snell has been doing an amazing job styling her. I loved her look last night—Angela Dean dress, Sutra jewelry, and Gucci shoes. But, can we talk about her hair and makeup for a second? Would you like to know how you can recreate the same makeup look?

I actually took video of it and wanted to share it with you guys. I even included my own plus size picks below. 

Tim Gunn and the Fab Bag Giveaway! (closed)

I remember watching Project Runway for the first time and instantly loving Tim Gunn. He was honest with each contestant, without really pushing them to change who they were as a designer. Besides, Michael Kors of course, he was one of my favorite reasons to watch the fashion designing competition. And with his comments this past summer about the state of designer plus size fashion, I love him even more.

Let’s be real for a second, how many times have you believed a beauty product with the word “miracle” in it? I know, right? It’s hard to take today’s beauty products seriously. You know I’ve always been a fan of L’Oreal Paris, so I had to try out their RevitaLift Miracle Blur. I was as curious as you are.
