Update and weight loss

Well as the new year has kicked off lots of changes have happen in my life. The best change is to focus on feeling better about my self . Was I happy with my weight I would be lying if I said I was at a complete acceptance because I wasn't. I couldn't stand to lie to myself and make up excuses for how unhappy I felt in my life so with lots of soul searching and getting down to the root of my issues with self; I joined weight watchers . On January 1st I signed up. But way before I joined i had spent about 2- 3 months just researching the plan and studying food and the points system . Well since signing up I am down almost 25 pounds !! YAY me !  As you can see from the above picture  you can see such a improvement in my face . My clothes fit better and I feel better I still have  a long ways to go  however I have a goal of getting down to a size large ! I am well on my way and Have my goal weight Dress in eye sight

Clothing is much cheaper as well  and  let me tell you ,  I loved dresses as a plus size and I know when i get this weight off dresses will still be my go to staple.

Warming up your Maxi Dresses for the Fall

know , I know I haven’t been posting !!! I’ll get back on track, I swear!
Even though fall is just around the corner , im still not ready to part with my maxi dresses. Luckily, it’still easyto warm up , so here are some ideas I have for keeping yourfave maxi dress in the cooler months.
Warming Up Maxi Dresses
I went for a little western vibe with some slouchy cowboy Boots from Zappos and a vintage calvin klein jacket from Etsy . This Etsy shop is great if you love the idea ofthrifting but haven’t gotten the hang of it yet! The sunglasses are from modaoperandi and the bag is from Mulberry (swoon!).


This next option is a little more rock chic – leather jackets and beanies are always a must for chilly fall nights. Thekenzo boots are from Jades24.com . A necessity for windy days (and bad hair days!) is this beanie is from Mango. The dress is called the Runway Maxi and it’s from Roamans.com. The pattern on it is kinda loud , so keep going with the monochromatic look with a jacket from Nelly.com a cute handbag. This one is the Classic Q Francesca from Nordstromsuper cold nights aren’t something I need to worry about , but if they’re a problem , no one needs to know if youre wearing some leggings.


Don't forget to stay tune for my next post that will cover my experience with the California smooth keratin treatment   And let me know your thoughts on how your transiting your wardrobe.

New year has really been filled with blessings

It's almost march wow!!!!
Seems like we were just in january . None the less I had to come on and share how great my new year has kicked off ! I'm happy in my job just bought a new car feel like I'm learning more about myself and lots of self improvement as far as personal growth I'm just in a wonderful place. I've join the iPad world which makes blogging a whole lot more fun and convenient . Blogging is my happy place and I let myself disconnect from it. In fact I let myself disconnect from lots of things one of the many things I am working on in my life. Letting the fears go taking out the garbage and replacing it with risk taking and building interpersonal connections. I have some what of a anti social thinking were letting people in my life has been a struggle . I'm hoping to change that :)
Well I just wanted to say a few words and ramble ....

I see through the eyes my sunglasses protray !


As in previous post I have talked about my obsession for Sunglasses, I am the queen of them. As we transition into the fall it’s time for me to find some cool fall shades. Yes I know I have tons to choose from that I already own, but being the shopaholic I am it’s time for a new pair. You see in the summer I was all about my cat eye sunnies, and don’t get me wrong those are my go to favorite, but I'm in the market for something a little more chic and screams fall.

So let’s see I was thinking I have never in my life owned a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses and I was looking at some the other day and I really like the Wayfarer style. The Maui Jim sunglasses look just as cool as well! I know they have been out for some time now but I always looked past them. I think they would make a great addition to my collection! What do you think? I mean c’mon, they would look great with some jeans, boots and a scarf - wouldn't you agree. Oh ladies I'm having so much fun playing with my closet and looking into all the possibilities.

As you probably also noticed I have really picked up the pace on my blog!!!! After my 9-5 job I really do enjoy coming home and getting into "Me" time and that includes surfing the web, shopping and putting all my fashion ideas here on this blog of mine. Also, I am more at a nice balance in my life and have a lot of clarity. I would say I'm more dedicated than ever to do what makes me happy. I hope this week is finding you guys in the best of health, and whatever it is you guys are doing out there - make sure to always do your very best! AND DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY !
