Plus Size Bridal Shopping Made Easy

When I got married, there were so few bridal gowns that went into plus sizes and even fewer that carried plus size samples sizes in store for their plus size customers.  I can't lie, it made me sad not to be able to try my wedding dress before I purchased it.  Essense of Australia is actively changing this and giving their plus size brides the same experience as their straight size brides through their EveryBody/EveryBride selections.  They have partnered with bridal retailers across the world to cater to the 18+ bride along with training the staff of these boutiques to be knowledgeable so they can help the brides find the best fit, style and even ways you can change your gowns through alterations so that you get the gown that looks best on you and that you feel good in. Find retailers near you that carry the Essense of Australia EveryBody/EveryBride collection.

How To Save Your Thighs From Chafing And Look Stylish For Summer

Miami is one of my favorite summer time spots for a quick vacation.  There is a beautiful beach, a great night-life and loads of things to do.  All of this in a very hot and humid place.  It's of those places where you want to skip the shapewear.  Now the Miami vibe is all about having fun in the sun, but also about your personal style and fashion.  I always want to have the right looks when I'm out and about and most of the time that involves wearing dresses.  So how do you keep your thighs safe from the chafe without having something on underneath?  Chafing Relief Powder Gel® from Monistat Complete Care® is how I protect my thighs from moisture caused by the heat and friction.  It creates a silky barrier so your thighs can easily swish by each other.  I've been using this product for 5+ years.  I happened upon it in the drug store one day while I was perusing the feminine product aisle and have had some stashed in my purse ever since. 


Pink Trap House ATL

I've been in Atlanta whopping three months now, and I finally got over to the photo hot spot, 2chainz' (the rapper) pin trap house.  It's quite the tourist attraction.  I mean who doesn't love something pink to take a photo in front of.  Now I went during that week at 1:30 pm.  I thought I was just going to be able to slide in and out.  No, ma'am. It was a zoo. Luckily my photographer was able to shoot through the commotion. LOL.  My guess is that I would try to go early in the morning or maybe try 10 am. Other than that it just is what it is. LOL. While you are there, they are giving free HIV tests.  So why not hop in and get tested. :)


Summer Time Fly

So many of you ask me about looks for concerts, festivals, etc.  I thought this top would be perfect for something like that.  Swap in your sandals, most comfy jeans (or jean shorts), and you have a super easy look that is both comfortable and cute. My number one rule at these sorts of functions to be comfortable first.  This look accomplished just that.  I hope this helps as you look for your own looks.

Alluring Nautical

Yall know I can't let summer go by without bringing you some nautical love.  I love love love this look. It's so me and it's comfortable.  Navy is my summertime black.  You can pair it with so many different colors, but I decided to keep it super simple and just do navy and beige.
