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…

Ready to Ditch the Diet?

Imagine waking up tomorrow feeling comfortable in your own skin, knowing you are worthy and perfect just the way you are. Imagine having a positive relationship with food; no more stress, no more tension, just enjoyment and nourishment. As an advocate for self-love and true happiness I have talked to many who have found that diets…

Thank You Nike!

Last year around this time I let out a huge rant about work out clothing lines. I can’t believe there are so many athletic companies that don’t have any plus sizes available to the general public. It literally blows my mind. Do they think we don’t want to work out too? With the help of…

SXSW Gave Me an Amazing Opportunity I’ll Never Forget

Being just feet away from Melissa McCarthy took everything in me to not go completely fangirl on her. She’s an inspiration and being in the same room with her was a complete honor. She was beautiful in her black heels and fringe clutch by her side. As she introduced the world premiere of her newly…

#MomLife

Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m a sugar addict. I love sweets and chocolate. I enjoy indulging everyday. It’s usually not much but I’ll have a handful or two of candy or a couple of cookies. However, this urge increases during my time of the month. That’s when I get crazy about chocolate. I crave it…

A Plus Sized Vacation True Review

Well, we all made it back in one piece. Hallelujah we survived! There were times when it got real rough. Traveling anywhere with a toddler is no cup of tea. You can tell it took its toll by how long I’ve had to recuperate before writing this. Nevertheless, I now know what tactics did and…

Planning for a Plus Sized Vacation

January, it’s a weird time to go on vacation, I know, but it worked for us. This time next week, we’ll be living it up in Orlando, Florida a few days at Disney World. While I’m certainly looking forward to our first vacation ever as a family, I do realize how much prep I have…

Resolutions

Welp, we somehow survived 2016. A new year is upon us and that usually comes with its fair share of resolutions. Even if you say you’re not into that stuff, many times you find yourself making secret promises to yourself for the year ahead. Maybe this one will finally your year. The one where you…

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…
