Plus Size Fashion for Fall ( That Id Actually Wear )

Well since gaining a lot of weight over the winter and spring. At this time last year I was graduating from plus sizes into " normal sizes " as they are called. I am in the process of shedding the fluff , you have to love yourself as you are now. I was in denial all summer about my expanding waistline. So I wore boyfriend jeans, capris, shorts . I only had three pairs of pants that still fit other than the beautiful Cynthia Rowley palazzo pants and black dress I purchased. I've been too depressed to shop for a bigger size in which I need. So I bit the bullet an pulled out my larger sizes out of the closet. Though you have to love yourself as you are NOW !  So I had to embrace my own mantra wholeheartedly.
 I've set up a pinterest board for those of us curvy divas. This board also has a body type chart that will give you some ideas of how to fit your body. Honestly just cause something comes in plus size doesn't mean it will look good on you. You must try things …

Make a Statement Without Saying a Word ( Statement Jewelry )

Ever since I discovered statement jewelry it has become a staple in my wardrobe. You can amp up your look in seconds by using a simple statement piece. You will be able to breath life into that little black dress. Some people find it scary for sometimes the pieces seem a bit larger than life. Statement jewelry is hot right now so now is the time. I liken statement jewelry to hats you just got to keep trying. Eventually you will find your piece that empowers you . I'm going to show you an array of statement pieces from my shop that are great beginner pieces. I actually own most of these pieces that I'm showing you today.

Writers Block

This blog is on vacation due to a case of writers blog by yours truly. 
My case of writers block came on quite suddenly with out warning. The way I combat this is through myself into some new life experiences. There isn't a lack of content the writer of the content , has no idea on how to deliver it. There wasn't any one event that lead to this. I am having a wonderful summer actually. I've been getting out meeting my community at farmers markets. I even have really cute alpaca friends. Though they can be moody like people. I am growing my own lavender in a container garden. Attending classes even making preparations to finish my degree finally. Though I am working on a Robin Williams tribute that will be done soon. Hopefully this creative block will pass soon.

Misty Copeland Ballet Icon Will Inspire You #bodyimage

I read about this advertisement in the Huffington Post. Ballet Icon Misty Copeland makes a statement.

This is an excerpt from the Huffington post article.

"The ad begins with Copeland balancing on pointe while a young woman's voice is heard reading a rejection letter. As the camera pans over her physique, the letter lists all of the reasons why the applicant didn't make the cut, including the sentence, "You have the wrong body for ballet." But Copeland spends the second half of the spot disproving that sentiment, powerfully and gracefully dancing her way across a stage."  ( via The Huffington Post "Misty Copeland's Under Armour Ad Is Like Nothing You've Seen" By Jamie Feldman)

Why is Basic a Dirty Word ? ( Pop Culture )

I definitely just got called a basic b*tch! Haha! Sausage curls!? Really @Allure_magazine? — Lauren Conrad (@LaurenConrad) July 21, 2014

I'm over a week behind on this one , I kind of ignored the whole story to be honest. Then it was speculated that Lauren Conrad went platinum blonde in regards to Allure magazine calling her " Basic " with sausage curls ??  Then it just seemed that "Basic" was now the new naughty word. So I decided to dig a little deeper on this one see what the craziness was all about. Even the young girls in the Starbucks line were calling someone "Basic " as they scrolled on there iPhone. The way they used the term was quite derogatory actually mean.   In my twitter feed beauty people were using the term. " How not to be Basic "
A few of  Lauren's  MTV's The Hills co-stars went under the knife allegedly due to the pressures reality stardom.(I'm not judging those who do get cosmetic …
