M A X I in Winter


One thing I love about winter is how versatile our entire closet becomes. Before I learned how to layer and make the most of what I currently have, I would've never put on a maxi skirt in winter. But now, I see how elegant or casual this can actually make an outfit. For those extra chilly days, I suggest throwing on thick tights or leggings underneath and rocking a good boot! But, if you live in warm climate....you don't have to do that ;)

Valentine's Day Lookbook: I Heart You


Hi, everyone! Today starts the first installment of my Valentine's Day Lookbook Series. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week, I will be sharing a new Valentine's Day outfit ideas. This first outfit idea stemmed from my love of mixing prints. What other day of the year can you mix hearts and a grid print? Oh, everyday? Okay.

My top AND my skirt is from the lovely plus-size shop, Re/Dress . I went to an Elle King concert a week ago with my best friend and stopped in to shop beforehand and picked up quite the little haul (expect a haul video this week). I love the atmosphere of the store and the message the owner and everyone who works there sends. Two thumbs up for fat babes doing freaking awesome things in the fashion biz.





If you haven't seen my video yet that shows all of my Valentine's day outfit ideas, check it out here! Talk to you peeps on Wednesday!

A N E W



Recently, I've began my journey in beauty. I haven't always been the most up to date on makeup and the application of such, but I've been slowly teaching myself (through many, many YouTube tutorials) how to perfect winged eyeliner or a smokey eye. I feel rejuvenated whenever I put it on now...which is usually for photo or video shoots these days, because it still takes me forever. 

I still enjoy the freedom of a bare face most days. I really believe that if you can feel beautiful without a trace of makeup on, you'll feel 100% more confident in the makeup you do wear. Sometimes winged eyeliner can't give you the confidence for a big presentation or even to just walk around in public. It  all starts inside and works its way out, very slowly. I'm still getting there, as most of us still are.
