Anna Scholz | New York State of Mind Collection

If you’re an Anna Scholz fan, you know she’s all about her bold patterns and bright colors. That’s what I love most about her. She’s not afraid to dress the plus size woman in what is normally seen as taboo for our curves. Her latest capsule collection, New York State of Mind, is a perfect example of that. The collection launched yesterday and I am all about it. As you’ll see below, she used “The Big Apple” as the back drop for the photoshoot. What do you think? Are you a fan? You can find the latest Anna Scholz collection here.

Cruelty-Free Beauty | 5 Summer Favorites

Whenever I describe what I do as a blogger, I always mention that I like to review beauty products.

Thank you Visit Philly for introducing me to the “City of Brotherly Love.” I’ve always been a fan of the east coast. I may be a sucker for the historic side of things, but I also appreciate a city that explores new and upcoming concepts—without losing it’s identity of course. The awesome people…
