Flowy Florals

June 24, 2018


How many times can one wear a kimono before it becomes too many? I’m asking for a friend. Actually, I’m pretty sure that you all know that I’m asking for me. I’m starting to think that I have a bit of a problem but then again how can something be a problem that is such a solution? Kimonos are easy to just throw on and go. You can wear the simplest of looks (like a tank top and jeans for instance) and a kimono adds instant style. Plus, many kimonos come in beautiful colors and prints, making styling easy and seamless.

So with that being said, how could I possibly pass up this beautiful garment? It just had my name written all over it. The colors are vibrant, the print is chic and trendy and the style is totally up my alley. That’s in addition to the price being a complete steal! “What’s another kimono?”, I said to myself. And I know what you’re thinking. The first sign of having a problem is denial and you would be correct however, I am merely asking a question. I see more pros than cons so of course I had to purchase it. I was able to style the kimono with pieces that I already had in my wardrobe so it was an overall win-win.

In conclusion, you can never have enough of any garment that is affordable, stylish and easy to wear. The saying “too much of a good thing is not a good thing” need not apply. Be sure to get your Summer staple to rock this season!

Push It To The Max(i)

If I had to name one garment that was synonymous with Summer style, it would be the maxi dress. There are just so many things to love of about it that make it the perfect clothing item for the season. The first is just the ease of wear. It is quintessential effortless style and during those warm Summer months, the least amount of effort is much appreciated. Also, maxi dresses are a look all in their own. You don’t really have to add much to it because the work is already done. Lastly, they are super versatile being able to be worn just about anywhere.

It’s no secret that I have been a long-time fan of Rachel Roy. I was wearing her clothing even before she had a plus size line, squeezing into any garment that I could. You can imagine my excitement when I found out that she was launching Rachel Roy Curvy and that it would be an extensive of her straight size line with the same great style.

So back to this dress. The first thing that I gravitated towards was the print. The colorful florals were understated but still pretty and feminine. I loved how they popped against the grey and I knew that I wanted to pull the color out of it even more. The color that most stuck out to me the most was pink so I went with matching pink sandals and purse to compliment that.

I also mentioned earlier how versatile maxi dresses are. I wanted to show that they can be worn in different ways. One of my favorite things to do is to tie the bottom up to the side or the front. It’s just another option of how you can rock your maxi and make it your own.

Check out some of my favorites from Rachel Roy Curvy available now at Macy’s below!

Shape My Infinity with Always

June 20, 2018


Sponsored by Always Infinity

I don’t think that it’s any secret that my life is pretty busy. Running a blog full time is essentially like running your own business. Not only are you the face of the business but you are also the creative director, the marketer, the accountant, editor and much more. As the popularity of my blog has grown, so have the responsibilities. On top of that, this has been a very unexpected journey in my life. Never did I think that I could make blogging my job until it just progressed into that. It’s a journey that I am forever grateful for but can be very overwhelming at times. I find myself just trying to keep up and learn as I go.

I say all that to point out that life has its unique twists and turns. You can have a plan and something can just come out of nowhere from a direction that you weren’t even looking in. In my case, that has been adjusting to becoming my own boss and figuring out the next step whatever that may be. So with everything on my plate, one thing that I don’t want to worry about is that time of the month.

I’ve shared on my blog and social media that I am an Always & Tampax ambassador and I thought that I knew a pretty good amount about period protection. That is until I visited the Proctor & Gamble headquarters in Cincinnati earlier this year. I not only learned about the technology behind the products (which is super fascinating by the way) but more importantly I realized that the core of these products is to enable us to live our full lives without hinderance. That’s it! Whether you are a business owner, a mom or a business owner and a mom, periods should not slow down your busy lives. Your feminine hygiene products should provide you with the protection you need to feel confident and keep doing the great things that you are doing. One of the products that I have become my go-to since being introduced on the trip is Always Infinity.

Always Infinity provides a Zero Feel experience. Yes you heard me right, Zero Feel. That’s because it’s made differently with its one-of-a-kind FlexFoam core. The ultra-light and form-fitting FlexFoam™ material molds to your body, so you’ll barely feel it. It’s also Always’ most absorbent, thin pad absorbing 10X its weight™. I’ll be honest, I was skeptical about how thin it is and its ability to absorb without leaks but that skepticism quickly went away after trying the product. I feel the ultimate protection and I am assured in knowing that this one area I can depend on.

Who knows what life’s next chapter hold for me? Girl boss? Entrepreneur? Designer? The sky is the limit! Whatever path I may go down, I know that I will dominate all aspects of my life, including my period and be able to #ShapeMyInfinity. Share what life changes you’re experiencing, big or small, and tag #ShapeMyInfinity for a chance to win a year’s supply of Always Infinity. In the meantime, shop these products at Walmart available here so that you can feel the difference for yourself. You will LOVE the results.

The Perfect Fit

June 17, 2018


Undergarments are the most essential components to any outfit. They provide the foundation needed to be able to wear garments correctly and that fit well. Bras in particular are probably the most important element because of how much they are needed for ample support. For someone that has a large bust such as myself, it can be a challenge trying to find a great bra that not only fits well but is also comfortable to wear.

I recently came in contact with a company called ThirdLove. They are an undergarment brand that prides themselves on the fit of their bras. Concentrating on every detail and design of their bras, they provide a confident stance that their bras are “obsessively comfortable”. The best part about all this is that they were informing me that they are now introducing 24 new sizes with cup sizes all the way up to an H cup! Needless to say, I was anxious to try.

I was sent three of the Perfect Coverage Bras to try and see how they fit. The first thing that I noticed and absolutely loved was that the bras were brown girl friendly, meaning that they come in nude colors to match our skin tones. I appreciate when brands have a commitment to inclusion and factor in the diversity of their customers. I also took note of how soft the material is which is essential for maximum comfort.

So let’s get to the most important part: how does it fit? One word sums it up and that is AMAZING. Everything that they claim the bra to be, it is. It’s supportive, beautifully designed and so light that you barely feel it. It is such a great everyday bra that can be worn with just about anything. I would not steer you wrong nor make such proclamations if I did not truly believe in this product. I know personally the problems of straps digging into your shoulders, wires poking and just an overall uncomfortable bra. I’m happy to share more options with you and really a solution to getting great support. Shop their full selection of Perfect Coverage Bras.
