Conquering Sleep Apnea Part 2

My last post ended with me finding out that I did indeed have sleep apnea and that there were a few options available to me for treatment. This post is a lot more technical in nature but I feel it’s necessary for those who are about to go through the process. It’s a sticky situation…

Conquering Sleep Apnea Part 1

I’ve been waiting for months to finally put this post together. The process has been long and frustrating but I’m hoping it will help others that may be going through the same thing without even realizing it. This is Part 1 of my journey. I still have more steps to take but I’m finally making…

Thanks, But I Don’t Need Your Advice

It’s happened to me for years and I know I’m not alone. Lately, I’ve been pretty open with my need to lose weight due to doctor’s orders. It’s funny how people feel this overwhelming need to give you unsolicited advice when you share something like that with them. I have a few friends that are…

When You’re Not Healthy

Photo by: Lucky Locket Photography I think it’s pretty obvious I love the body positive moment. It’s basically what this whole blog centers around. I love that women are forming a community to build each other up, when we’ve been so often encouraged to do the exact opposite. My number one goal is to love…

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…

You Ain’t Your Weight Interview

I had the honor and privilege to be part of Jenna Free’s Speaker Series for You Ain’t Your Weight. I was one of 21 speakers who got to share my thoughts on body positivity because my ultimate goal has always been to love the body I’m in right now, no matter the size. Jenna’s vision…

Lashes for Days

For the past few years, I’ve been very serious about my makeup.¬†Somewhere along the line I felt that since I had on extra weight, everything else needed to top notch to compensate for it. That meant flawless makeup, hair and fashion. The problem is, that isn’t always realistic. Especially since being a mom. Looking like…

Fears, Tears and Pregnancy Woes

It’s a fear. Not one that I usually have. In fact, I’ve never really had a fear like this but I can’t ignore it. It creeps in every month around the same time. I know what I need to do but it’s nagging me. Maybe if I just try one more month I won’t have…

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,…

Do I Have a Food Addiction?

My weekend was rather busy, celebrating my husband’s 30th birthday in Dallas. And while Friday was consumed by it, I decided to make a point to attend a film festival the next day. It was the Attic Film Festival, a series of redemptive films, that I felt would not only be a great addition to…
