Sexual Self-Care: 10 Valentine's Day Lingerie Ideas for All Body Types

I have a confession to make: I've spent more time over the past 18 months thinking about how tied my self-esteem is to my desirability than I had the entire previous 30+ years.The reasons for this are twofold: 1. I had a baby and 2. I went through a breakup. My confidence took a nosedive for awhile. I'm honestly still working on it, but the number one lesson I've learned is how imperative self-care is. Mental, spiritual, physical...sexual. True story.What's Sexual Self-Care?...more

The 3X Life

I'm living the 3X life.I wear big clothes because I have a big body. I seek out large seats because I have a big behind. I sometimes need a seatbelt extender on planes because I have big thighs. I cross my arms on busses so I can share the seat, because I have big shoulders. I don't buy jewelry often - I make it instead - because I have big wrists. I buy bras from specialty stores because I have big boobs. I even need large hats because I have a big head.I'm a big person.So yes, I'm living the 3X life, and I'm okay with it.Well......more

back to black: houndstooth fall fashion for plus sizes

I love wearing black. As an introvert, I've never liked drawing a lot of attention to my appearance. Wearing black makes it easy to look polished and occasion-appropriate with minimal effort, blending into the crowd in a chic rather than meek way. Houndstooth is a popular fall fashion trend once again this year, which just makes it easier for me to find fun items I'd wear anyway. Below are a few of my top picks for plus size houndstooth (and similar) prints this fall....more

Plus Size & Beautiful

Too many of us live in a world that reflects ourselves with an image we believe true even if the mirror shows otherwise. Come on let's be real most of us have mastered the art of the "Up Shot" we look oh I'd say about 10-25 punds thinner based on the angle of the photo.I do understand it makes us feel better, but I think we forget we really do not look that way because we are so used to seeing ourselves in this image. Hey don't get me wrong I'll be the first to admit I can look about three sizes smaller in photos. But why do we do this?...more

Every job has its perks. As a barista you may get unlimited coffee, as a consultant you have a ridiculous number of airline miles, and as a Mom you receive frequent free hugs (and gooey things).  The world of fashion isn't really always as glamorous as it appears to be, but there's one job requirement that we can't wait to jump out of bed to attend... a Photo shoot!...more

Celeb Inspiration! Best Hairstyles for Round Faces and Plus Size Women

You can’t always rely on your hairdresser to know what works best for your round face. My own hairdresser talked me into a short-on-the-sides style right after I’d gained some weight, and my new ‘do made my cheeks look giant. It’s bad enough when a too-tight pair of pants makes you look bigger than you really are, but a haircut? ...more
