I don’t EVER wear shorts. Let alone a matching short set. I’ve always felt like the ratio between my ankle and my calf was on struggle mode. Like, I’m right on the line of fat ankles or cankles. I don’t have any thigh gap. None! My thighs are soulmates who always want to cuddle. And depending on how the shorts are set up there’s always way too much crouch area or worst, not enough.
My blogger buddy/personal stylist in my head, Kela Walker (KelasKloset.com) encouraged me to step outside of my style box and get this short set from Eloquii. And I am so happy that I listened to her (she was right, *rolls eyes*… I hate when people are right) because… View Full Post
People ask me all the time. How do you wear sneakers with your fancy dresses? Hmmm. Not to be all simplistic and corny BUT just do it! In my twenties I rocked the highest heels possible. I use to model and walking everyday in heels was my practice. Now, I got corns. I swear life would be better without my pinky toe. Let doctors tell it you need it to stand up straight and not fall over. Meh!

I’m currently on a “financial diet” because I sorta kinda went overboard a few months back. I kept loading up my online carts (plural because I keep my carts filled up while I wait for the sales) with trendy goodies and when I went to check out, sheesh!

Initially this post was simply to introduce you to the new #FearlessFlirty campaign and Olga Flirty Collection by Olga Intimates. But now, I’m declaring that I am officially swooning over this brand. In case you’re unfamiliar with Olga (because I was), they’re one of the leading intimate apparel brands for curvy and fuller-busted women. Their new line, Olga Flirty, is a collection of bras and panties featuring those sexy details we’ve been begging for, like lace and plunging necklines. View Full Post
I’m gonna keep this short and sweet because I am currently in Vegas living my best life with my best friend. I was invited by IHG Rewards Club for a weekend of 114 degree weather (trust this is not me complaining) and there may have been a few Vegas shows, a Spa visit and unlimited poolside cocktails. More on that later. But for now, let’s get into my bikini from Lane Bryant. View Full Post
How many times have you explored the city that you live in? You know, went somewhere new and just had fun or relaxed without the pressures of checking your inbox for a few hours. Very rarely do we take the time to enjoy moments of pleasure in our own city. I’ve been living in New York for almost four years and there are still so many things I haven’t done. So when Catherine’s decided to surprise four bloggers with a NYC staycation I gladly excepted.
Staycations are actually quite simple to plan and can save you lots of money on expensive plane tickets and car rentals. But what you don’t want to do is stay in your hotel room the whole weekend. So here’s a few ideas for you to help you plan your next staycation in New York. View Full Post
