How to Date a Big Girl

I stumbled across this article on Huffington Post and it is so freaking spot on I just had to share. I have dealt with almost everything she touches on in this article. I 've heard ridiculousness from men like, You have a pretty face BUT...I have a secret fetish for big women...You look so soft and cuddly...etc. etc. Check out the article below. It both refreshing and empowering.

Outfit of the Week: ASOS Curve Red Leopard Swing Dress

This week's outfit is this fabulous red leopard swing dress from ASOS Curve. I think its fun, cute and sexy. I chose to pair it with a belt for a more flattering fit. It looked like a tent on its own, but the belt makes it work. You can also rock it without a belt, but I'd recommend getting it in a size smaller than what you normally wear.

Get the dress here on sale for only $27!

Belt - stole it off another dress I had
Jacket - Similar at Old Navy
Boots - Ross Dress for Less
Tights - Lane Bryant
Infinity Scarf - Walmart

Target Awesome Shop

The geniuses at Target have created a site called Target Awesome Shop that shows the most pinned Target items from Pinterest and the top reviewed items from all on one page. UMMM YES PLEASE!!! I'm gonna let you finish Walmart, but Target is THE GREATEST STORE OF ALL TIME!! (In my Kanye voice).

I literally could live in Target. I get lost in Target for hours. I love great design and aesthetics and low prices so Target is the store version of myself. But, it's a huge store. Sometimes it can be overwhelming and you don't get to see everything. Plenty of times my girl Becca would come to work in some fab clothing and she's like I got this at Target last week. I'm like I was just in Target and I didn't see that!

Target is changing the game! How great of an idea is this site? You get to see the best of Target all on one visually fabulous page. I can easily scan the page and find fantastical items I may have missed just by browsing the site or the store. Browsing thousands of items? Ain't nobody got time for that. This makes browsing much more effective and less time consuming.

Here are my fav finds from today:

Pave Bracelet

2 Door Buffet

Cheers Glass

Bib Necklace

Mesh Dress (up to XXL)

Check out the Target Awesome Shop

Let me know if the site allows you to find some fabulous items.

Husband of the Week: A Tribute to Paul Walker

Sigh, I think I'm still in shock over Paul Walker's tragic death. More than the fact that he was the face of the Fast and Furious franchise, very attractive and a good actor...he was a great person, father, son and friend. I didn't know him personally, but I've followed his career since I first saw him in Varsity Blues back when I was in high school. He was in my top celebrity crushes ever since then.

"I live by 'Go big or go home.' That's with everything. It's like either commit and go for it or don't do it at all. I apply that to everything. I apply that to relationships, I apply that to like sports, I apply that to everything. That's what I live by. That's how I like it." --Paul Walker
Me and my friends and family are HUGE fans of the Fast and Furious franchise; well the ones with the original cast of course. I've seen each one opening weekend and have them on DVD. Definitely my favorite franchise of movies EVER! Watching them will not be the same, but I hope they honor his memory and finish the 7th installment, although it will be emotional to finish and to watch.

In following his career I also watched and read many an interview and article about him. No one ever had a bad thing to say about him and he always came off as humble, nice, genuine and down-to-earth in all of his interviews. He had a big heart and did a lot for charity and he gushed when talking about his daughter, Meadow. I just watched an interview with him on Extra a few weeks ago and remember thinking he's such a sweetheart! So freaking sad what happened and I send prayers and love to his family and friends, especially his daughter during this time.

Let us not forget Roger Rodas who also perished in the crashed. May he rest in peace as well and condolences to his family.

R.I.P. Paul Walker
You will be missed!

Outfit of the Week 11.25.13

In love with this orange dress. Bright colors look great on my skin tone and I'm loving the way this dress pops. The fit and flare silhouette is very flattering and the gold belt detail gives it that next level style. This dress is great for the office or a night out. I paired it with tan booties and gold jewelry.
I got the dress  at Ross Dress for Less, but ASOS has a similar dress on sale for $35!

The booties are from Ross as well, but DSW has a similar style. I love the cutout necklace, but I forget where i got it. Forever 21 has a similar one. And similar earrings from Claire's.

Thanks again to Crystal McMoore for the lovely photos.
