8 Plus Size Ethical and Eco-Friendly Clothing Brands

 Plus Size Ethical and Eco-Friendly Clothing BrandsThis post has been in-demand ever since I collaborated with World Vision Canada to promote  World Day against child labor last year. Every now and then, I get an email begging me to finally fulfill my promise to share the best plus size ethical and eco-friendly brands available in North America and beyond. At first, I was very reluctant because I run a lifestyle blog that features products from all kind of brands. In another word, this blog is by no means an example of how to lead a sustainable lifestyle. Then, I thought why not? Part of my job as blogger is to share information and help others.

Many people (myself included) are guilty of amassing piles of clothes, shoes and barely use half of them. As much as I try to buy less and invest in quality pieces, I still have a thing for fast fashion. I have no issue admitting that I am part of the problem. I am willing to take small steps toward changing my buying habits, be part of the solution by investing more and more in plus size ethical fashion brands.

Turn your Pillow cover Into Art - more on mycurvesandcurls.com

Our guest bedroom is slowly coming together. I can’t wait until the big reveal day ! In the meantime here is a little sneak peek of what the bedside will eventually look like. I say eventually because this girl changes her mind all the time. By the time you see the final product the little spot might look different. I recycled the 2-drawer chest from the boys bedroom and added to some handles to make it look a bit more expensive. This was one of my favorite and simplest Ikea hacks ever. Read More »

Are you headed on a little winter getaway on a tropical island ? With the weather reaching well over -10 degrees these days,  everyone is headed somewhere tropical. I have no vacation plans so far , however that won’t stop me from daydreaming.“On vacation, you can wear all the colorful and casual clothing that you like, but you must always be elegant” Christian Dior. I could not agree more with the above statement. Vacation is the time to let loose, but still  look chic. Read More »

Best Plus Size Workout Clothes and Activewear

After the holidays, I remembered that I had not hit the gym within the last three weeks. Say what? You and I both know that it can be tough to be motivated to hit the gym during the holidays. Come to think of it the weather has not been great either. I am still feeling a little guilty to have fallen off the wagon. Until now, I’ve been able to maintain my routine even if it was for 30 minutes a day.I try not to be hard on myself. Besides, I did a lot of walking at the mall hunting for gifts. The Gear Fit 2 from Samsung also helped me stay on top of all my activities ( more on that below) Read More »
