Whew!!

What an amazing birthday weekend! I am so blessed to have such a

wonderful husband, family, and friends.

I spent the first part of the day just being a bum. My hubby bought me some red roses (awwwwww). Later that night, we made our way to a cousin’s birthday party. They even sang happy birthday to me…it was too sweet. We partied until 3a.m.! I was paying for that this morning.

I got $150 worth of gift cards…which I can’t wait to use by the way. So excited to go shopping! Of course I’ll keep you updated on what I buy. My bff sent me a little birthday package. The necklace (left) I’m wearing in the pic was part of my gift and she also bought me these beautiful silver tear drop earrings. She’s the best!!

Today, we had a BBQ and we had some friends come over. We watched the Lakers and the Dodgers win! Yay! Now, I’m sitting here yawning every 30 seconds. I’m pooped! I also wanted to say thank you to all of you who sent me birthday wishes. It means so much to me. Thanks!!

Simply Simple

My hubby and I went out last night for a pre-bithday date night. Nothing fancy, so I just threw on a comfy and simple outfit and my hair in a bun. We went to eat at one of my fave resturaunts-Chyn King on 3rd/La Brea in L.A. So yummy! Then we went to the Little Bar…love this place. It was a chill night…one of my favorite kind of nights. Then I just sat there and counted down until midnight…second by second…until I was a year older. Blah! It’s OK…age is nothing but a number anyways. Lol. Right?

Dress: Xhilaration, Target (on clearance)
Shoes: Madden Girl, Marshalls
Cardigan: Caslon, Nordstrom
Nylons/leggings: Hue, Macy’s
Earrings: studs from F21

Wish List: Evans

Why won’t these amazing European stores, like Evans, open up boutiques in the states? Whyyyyyyy?

I am so skeptical when buying something online, because I don’t get to try it on. But, that doesn’t really matter anyways because I am on my current shopping freeze. Blah!!

Anywhoo…that won’t stop me from lusting after great fashion pieces, like the ones I’ve chosen from Evans below. Sigh…

1.Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?

I’m only familiar with the famous ones, and never been that into designer clothes but more designers bags! So…I like Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Miu miu and Chloé for example, because their bags are mostly simple, clean yet trendy…AND BIG! Love big bags!

2.What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?

Black leggings!!!

3. If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what would you name it?

Some sort of wax strip that’s cut out with the shape you want for your eyebrows, I suck at doing my eyebrows, I’m to lazy to shape them, would be wonderful to have them done with just one pull. :) (if it only were that simple)

4. If you only had 10 minutes to pack for a fashion extravaganza in your favorite city, what would you bring and where would it be?

Comfortable cute flats, leggings, cute dress’ and tops and my biker jacket and Denim Jacket. And it would be New York, still have a lot more to explore there.

5. Do you live by a fashion philosophy or quote? What is it?

As long as you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing, you’ll show confidence, and you’ll shine! and you’ll feel good, and that is all that matters…

Beauty Buzz: Nails and Lips

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I was flipping through my new issue of Elle, when I came across the “Elle Beauty Obsession” page. I fell in love with this pic! The nail polish is OPI’s Hong Kong collection “Jade is the New Black” and the lipstick is Chanel’s Rouge Allure Lipstick in “Super.” I need the nail polish!! I found it on Amazon for $2.50!! I have to ask the hubby if we can fit this in our budget!

Style Trend: Leopard Print

Grrrrrrrrrrr…its all about leopard prints! That was my sad attempt of some kind of cat growl…lol. I’ve seen tons of chicas wearing it lately and this sexy print will pretty much always be in style. It’s fun and adventurous…just don’t be afraid to wear it. If you think it’s too much, just try adding an accessory with this print to a solid black outfit. Bring out the feisty gal!


Happy Birthday Arlene!!

I would just like to take a moment to wish my beautiful cousin Arlene a very Happy Birthday!! I love this chick! She is an amazing, creative, smart, and hilarious person! I don’t know what I’d do without her in my life. Love ya cousin!!

Curvy Sports Fan

“It’s time for Dodger baseball!”

Yes…I am a Los Angeles Dodger fan and if you’re not one…I’m so so sorry. Lol.

This is me, yesterday, at the Dodger opener. It was a beautiful day. And of course we won!

As a curvy sports fan, its hard to find sports gear that fits. I am forced buy a mens medium or large t-shirt and we all know the quality of the mens shirts are not very female-friendly.

Today, I am a happy sports fan! I have found a few Dodger items in Plus Size (XL-4X)!! I love the touch by Alyssa Milano line. Too cute. There aren’t many options and some are a little pricey, but I guess it’s a start.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a Dodger fan. They have other teams available…but they don’t really matter. :)

Cuff Inspiration

Not only am I a “curvy” gal…but I have inherited my father’s huge hands! It’s so hard for me to find cute bangle bracelets that will fit over my hands. It sucks, but I know I can always try Torrid and Lane Bryant. And,I can always go with a cute cuff. Here is some cuff inspiration.

Road Trips and Birthday Suits

I just returned a few hours ago from my second road trip to Arizona, two weekends in a row. My uncle is very ill and we went to visit him. I am pretty pooped but the 7 hour drive is worth it. I love that guy!! That’s why there haven’t been any posts since last week. Just thought I’d let you guys know.

On a brighter note, my birthday is coming up this weekend and I would love to go out. In case I do, I am on the search for a party dress. Something in black and fun…but not too revealing. What do you think about these two? The first one is from Forever 21 and the second is from Torrid. It has to be something I can buy this week. Decisions…decisions.

**Update: I was just informed by my bestfriend that I am not supposed to be shopping. :( So…no new dress. My bday plans have been canceled anyways. But, thank you for all the comments. Lol.

Boring Undies?

Today I realized…I have boring underwear. Ok, I realized this while I was looking through Torrid’s fun, colorful, and sexy intimates selection. I’ve never really thought of it and this may be a tad personal. Torrid, thank you for selling cute undies and making me realize mine are boring. Plus, they are all under $8 each and some are even on clearance. Oh…if you’re going to buy some online…there’s a coupon code at the bottom of this post. You’re welcome. :)

Sex and the City 2 Trailer

Sex and the City has been a love of mine since I can remember. Yes, I watch the late night reruns and yes, I’ve even imagined which one of the ladies I’m most like. Who hasn’t? I really liked the movie, but it wasn’t the best. So, I wasn’t too excited about Sex and the City 2…that was until I found out Aidan is in it!! He was my favorite boyfriend of all!! John Corbett is to cute!! I can’t wait to see it! Here’s the trailer:

Wish List: ASOS

I don’t think this budget thing is working, because now all I want to do is e-window shop. And then I drool over pieces like this from ASOS. Thank you ASOS for making me drool. Thank you very much.

Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?

I’ve always been in awe of the fabulous Coco Chanel. She was the first to say FUCK what men what women to wear! She went for designs that were comfortable and classic. She was against the norm and stood up for real women out there. It’s incredible that her designs can be worn to this day. I believe plus, real, curvy (what ever you want to call us) women are at the point in time were we are standing up and saying screw what the industry thinks we should be wearing…we’ll wear what we want!

What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?

Aghhh…don’t throw stones but I cannot live without my black leggings! I love that I can pair them with anything in my closet and feel comfortable and chic.

If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what would you name it?

I would create a lipstick. I can see it being a bright shade of red with a hint of pink. I would call it “Beware: Curves Ahead!”

If you only had 10 minutes to pack for a fashion extravaganza in your favorite city, what would you bring and where would it be?

I would pack my fave leggings, over-sized tee, leather jacket, black pumps, mixed jewelry and head out to punk/rockabilly bar in L.A to dance the night away.

Do you live by a fashion philosophy or quote? What is it?

It’s not really a fashion quote but it can be applied to being yourself. “The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”
