1 Year of Blogging!

It has been exactly one year since I wrote my first blog post and I’m so happy to share this milestone with all of you. When I started my blog, I didn’t really have any sort of expectations. I just figured that I would give it a try and see how it went.

Now one year later, I’m so happy I have it a shot. I’ve become part of a great plus size bloggers network on Facebook, I’ve grown my Instagram to 2K followers, and my YouTube channel is nearing 1K subscribers. I never thought, in my wildest dreams, that anyone would read my blog of watch my videos besides family and friends. I had no idea it would grow into something bigger. Now, I have the honor of spreading the message of self love and how to be stylish at any size and budget. I’ve made some great friends via the internet and learned a lot about myself and set new goals for my future.

I just want to say thank you. Without all of you, my blog would not give me such joy and purpose. Thank you for all of your love and support and let’s make this go on for years to come!


A Piece Named for Me!

If you’ve Been following me for some time, you already know that Society+ had a contest I entered back in January. It was their New Year, New Motto contest and I was one of the winners. My prize was to have one of their summer collection pieces named after me. I’ve been anxiously awaiting what the piece would be, what it would look like, and if I’d like it. 

They announced it a few days ago and I’m in love! It’s this gorgeous crane print kimono. I’ve just started getting into the kimono trend and was actually looking for some new ones this past week. So naturally, I ordered it the day after I saw it! I can’t wait to get it and I’ll definitely show it off to you guys! Society+ is a great brand so I have full confidence that it will be made beautifully and fit me well!

Cute T!

Boohoo has become one of my favorite places to shop online. The almost always have a 40-50% off sale. The clothes are about the same quality of Forever21, but their sizing seems to be more consistent. It’s a great place especially for cute dresses and comfy T-shirts. 

I never used to buy T-shirts because I didn’t think they could look good. I was 100% wrong. Boohoo’s T’s are always super soft and comfortable as well as being super adorable! I got this shirt for $8 and I’ve already worn it a bunch of times! Something to keep in mine is that they are a U.K. Based clothing brand so be sure to check the size chart before ordering.  I got this shirt in a US size 20/UK size 24.

I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on it! The lettering also survived the wash, which I know people get concerned about with cheaper clothes. I paired it with a pair of jean capris from Loralette and Nike flip flops. Overall this look is great for a relaxing comfy summer day.
