KNOW your body

Ladies, Ladies, Ladies!!!  I kow that leather is hot right now and fur is even hotter but we must know how to pull of the trends and still look our best.  As a BIG girl we tend to jump on the bandwaggon to anything trendy.  But my mother said it best, "just because they made it in your size doesn't mean you need to wear it."  Personally, leather and I could never date.  We toyed with the idea of a union but anything shiny on my booty is WAY too much.  However, the furs I do like!  Check out this quick video by Thread that's all about rocking the trends at any size...

The Arminator

If you've been reading this blog then you know how much I HATE-HATE-HATE my arms!!!!  Well if you didn't you do!  The Arminator controls my life...LITERALLY!!! They determind what I buy, what I wear, and where I go when it's 90 degrees outside.  I love the winter for one reason ONLY...long sleeves!  But what's a girl to do when she's sick of being punked by her own body parts???  I say fight like Arnold Schwarzenegger.  So, I bought a resistance band and when I say that I can feel it I mean it!  My arms are becoming more and more defined everyday.  And my strength and ability to carry a 24-pack of Dasani has sooooo improved!  Don't get me wrong...I'm still carrying around the Arm of Gibralter but it's definitely becoming more and more defined.  Patience is the KEY!!!

Wedding Frenzy

Don't get excited by this title...I'm definitely not getting married!!!  However, two of my closes friends and my brother are!  Weddings are soooo much fun especially when you're in them.  But in the midst of my elation with all the love that's in the air, I can't help but think about my biggest fear!  Barney!!! Yes, that friendly dinosaur scares the crap out of me.  I love's my favorite color...but Barney looks huge an uncomfortable in purple.  So in between now and November (wedding #1) I'm on serious grind mode.  I can't be the Barney of the Ball!!!  So, what's my plan might you ask? 
A.Sit on the Couch
B.Buy a treadmill
C.Eat everything in site
***DING DING DING*** Yes, I bought a treadmill.  I'm so excited about the newest addition to my bite-size apartment.  With a brand new treadmill staring me in my face I can't help but feel guilty enough to get off the couch.  I can still watch all my reality shows, movies and more while climbing mountains in my cozy apartment.  Barney is my BIGGEST fear but Laziness is my BIGGEST enemy...the two equal destruction.  LET'S GO TO WAR!!!!!!!!

The LOVE of my Life

I kind of realized over the weekend that I have a bit of a problem.  When it comes to fashion I'm like a kid who's been deprived of candy but one day gets trapped in a candy store.  Well that candy is my fashion!!!   And unfortunately, I have been deprived for so long that I tend to over do it.  I try to maintain my compsure...telling myself to breath in and out like I'm in labor BUT I just can't help myself!!!  My heart races, my palms get sweaty, and my spending budget gets BIGGER and BIGGER with every fashion-find I grab.  Well this weekend I did it!!!   While in New York for New Years, I ventured into Harlem with one thing on my mind ..."PayHalf"!  This store is great and one of my NY favs!!! The entire second floor is loaded with racks-and-racks of plus size clothes.   And even though my heart was pounding and my hands felt like butter I bought BIG, BOLD, and BEUATIFUL while managing to stay within my BUDGET!!!  I walked out feeling not only satisfied with my newest wardrobe adds but GUILT free too!!!  The trick...only walk away with The LOVE of my Life (; 

Pics of my new loves coming soon!!!!
