Breaking Rules with Leota

We all know that fashion rules no longer apply. If you’re living by them, feel free to release yourself from these unrealistic standards. As plus size women, we have been told more than once that we shouldn’t wear stripes. Blah…blah…blah…seriously? All I have to say is, give me all of the stripes please. Leota, a premium fashion brand focused on designing “Feminine, Sophisticated, and Effortless” pieces reached out and offered to send me one of their dresses. Of course I chose the one striped to the max. The Mia in Stripe dress is bold, yet versatile and very comfortable—three of my…

Desert Adventure

If there’s one thing I love more than writing, it’s the freedom of being able to travel. Ask my dad and he’ll tell you the story about this little 2-year-old, yelling “let’s dooooh” whenever someone grabbed their keys. He said I was always trying to leave. Which I did a couple of times…but that’s a whole different story. Well, I can say that things haven’t changed much. Whenever I have an opportunity to travel I take it. Remind me to tell you about my first time visiting New York City in only 72 hours. I’ve learned that traveling is so…

My Favorite Blog Posts of 2015

When I look back on this past year, I can’t help but really reflect on my personal growth. Where have I been as a person? What have I learned? How will I use that to better my life? Turns out, 2015 has been a year unlike any other. I’ve learned a few things and started a journey or two. And like the blogger I am, I decided to share with you on this blog—through a few personal posts. I went through my blog archives and pulled out seven posts that stood out to me. I can remember what was going on…

Sequin Obsession | $50 and Under

Oh sequins…why do I love you so much? It has clearly become a little bit of an obsession. Especially, when I’m online searching for anything covered in sequins. I do this for you guys…I swear. I am definitely going to blame the holidays on this one. Even though we all know you can wear them anytime of the year. Yes, you can! If you’re a lover of all things sparkly, but don’t want to spend too much, I found a few sequin pieces, from accessories to plus size dresses, that caught my eye and are all under $50. Click through…

True story guys…I have been asking my mom to send me a list of the things she might want or need and to this day she refuses to send one over. She just replies…”surprise me.” So, that’s basically what I had to do. I ran over to JCPenney bright and early this morning to do some last-minute shopping for my mom.…
