Three Facebook Groups You Should Be a Member of Right Now

I absolutely love the power of Facebook groups. They allow you to connect with like minded people from all over the world. I’m a member of several groups like some for moms, local city groups and places to shop. I remember when LuLaRoe started changing the game by encouraging people to buy privately online and…

Move Over LuLaRoe, There’s a New Kid in Town

I remember when I first discovered LuLaRoe, I feel in love hard. It’s hard to find plus size clothing that fits so when I do, I’m all in. Over time I greedily collected several patterns of styles I preferred on my body. So much so that I ended up stopping completely. I had bought quite…

How I Wiggled My Way Into Modeling for a Band Merch Store

It all started when the band for KING & COUNTRY sent a friend and I a surprise in the mail. Unpacking the box, we pulled out two super stylish bomber jackets with their logo on the back. We loved them so much, we wanted to come up with a fun way to say thank you….

A Plus Size Halloween

If you’re a plus size lady then chances are you’ve had an extremely hard time finding a costume for the Halloween season. The costumes available are either too tight and fit weird or they cost tons of money. There’s really no win when it comes down to it. Not to mention the severe lack of…

Thoughts After Episode 4 of Project Runway Season 16

It was around this time last year when Tim Gunn flooded headlines stating that designers really need to pay attention to plus size women. There are 100 million women that are larger than a size 12 and yet, most retailers don’t have anything above that. He blamed fashion designers and the retail industry for the…

New’ish’ Clothes on the Cheap

Let’s face it, plus size clothing is so expensive! Especially if you shop at the main stores, you know which ones I’m referring to. Unfortunately, cheaper options don’t always carry the range of sizes I need. So, while I love to splurge every once in a while, on most occasions it’s just not an option…

Bending it Like Beckham

The new Target designer collection came out this month. It’s been a while since we’ve seen a collaboration like this from the big brand. The last I remember was Lilly Pulitzer and while all of the pieces were to die for, the organization behind the launch was a complete disaster. If you remember it right,…

Drop Everything, Torrid Has an Amazing Disney Line Out

It’s been a few years since I’ve been on a real vacation. I’ve gone to the beach a few times, and I can’t complain but nothing more than that. Despite my family’s ongoing battle to pay off our student debt quickly, there are times when you have to step back and enjoy life where you’re…

Adding a Little Sparkle to Your Holiday

The Christmas season is my absolute favorite. I love the cold weather where I can sport boots and scarves, the Pumpkin Spice Lattes, the beautiful decorations, music and generous hearts. It all mixes together to make me feel all warm inside. But apart from all the festivities comes the shopping. Oh, the shopping! Everything and…

If The Shoe Doesn’t Fit, Why Am I Wearing It?

I think everyone who is a size 14 and up can say that finding decent clothing that fits well is a challenge. Every time I have to find an outfit for a special event, I feel like I am gearing up for battle. I know there’s a good chance I’ll visit 6 different stores only…

Contouring- Why Should We Care?

I’ve gotten to the point now where my face is carrying some of my extra weight. I used to have cheek bones and a nice pointy chin. Now everything’s a little more muddled together. I’ll admit it’s not my favorite thing but I it’s not something I obsess over either. For the most part, it…

Let’s Talk Panties!

Oh boy, this is a subject! Ever since I’ve been plus sized, I’ve struggled finding underwear. In fact, when I gained a substantial amount of weight after my pregnancy, I found that only maternity panties were doing the trick for me. Talk about not feeling sexy, huh? I mean, yeah there are plenty of brands…
