Hi! I know it’s the middle of the week, but this week is planning week! I’m spending my time getting my editorial calendar together as well as updating and creating new pages, such as advertising, brand information, and working on a list of personal topics for a new category, which of course will be titled ‘personal’.

See you next week,

On Thursday I wrote a post about summer trends for plus size women and in that post, there was a very informative infographic.

alight-sunnydaystaples

I know that we’ve been in summer for a few weeks now but I’ve been seeing a lot of plus size fashion no-no’s lately and I came across this infographic on Pinterest and it inspired me to write this plus size fashion guide. One of the things I hate the most is when I go out, which is not often, and see a woman or women, of size, pulling on their clothes. You knew before you walked out of your…

Noni and Monoi

I’m back with part two of my three part Shea Moisture review! Today I’m focusing on the Tahitian Noni & Monoi collection from Shea Moisture. Yesterday, on part one of the review,  I told you all that I wanted to wait to see how my hair came out because I did a perm rod set Sunday night.
