Bold prints have been everywhere for a while now. That makes me happy because to know me is to know how much I love beautiful prints and bright colors. I love mixing them, wear them with neutrals or full on like my outfit today. As far as I am concerned bold prints add a lot of personality to my boring outfits. Read More »
I have been blogging for years. For all those years I and others have fought tooth and nail for inclusivity and better fashion for plus size women. First, some brands listened and started to make plus-sized lines. We were happy until we found out that the lines would only be carried online (insert sad face). If they were carried in the store, you had to walk into the darkest corner at the back to get them. Even then, the items in plus were different from the straight size ( insert another sad face).
Fast forward to 2017 and enter Reitmans. One of the few brands that took note and made changes. Now, Reitmans carries clothing up to 3x both online and in STORE. Read More »
Phew ! We made it through the first week of school guys. The kids are still working on their sleeping patterns and I am working on making healthy lunches for them. Other than that, we are ready for an amazing year.
I wanted to start today’s post by sending plenty of love to everyone affected by the hurricanes. I was browsing through some photos last night and I could not hold my tears. These hurricanes have destroyed entire countries and nothing can give them back what they’ve lost. I hope we can all find it in our hearts to spare some clothes and money to help the victims. You can make donations here.
I’ve sat here now for several hours trying to figure out what to write. I could tell you about this beautiful floral cold shoulder dress, but it’s the end of summer. It would be foolish of me to ask you to invest in it when we are headed colder months unless you really like it of course. I would suggest however you check my pre-Fall outfits post to get started on your Fall shopping. Since I am having a writer block I will leave things here, hoping to come back in full force on my next post. Read More »
We are officially just 2 weeks away from the beginning of school. Insert panic mode, trying to figure out everything last minute. As much as I am ready for the kiddos to get back to school, I am going to miss having them around the house. We had an amazing summer, I hope you did too. Here are our Cheers to an amazing new school year!
Btw, we shot these looks for Sears Canada for their Back to School campaign. You can find all the details here
When I heard the news that Canadian clothing retailer, Joe Fresh was launching a plus size line or I should say extending their line for its fall collection, I was excited, to say the least. I have squeezed myself in many of their pieces in the past so the news that some of the new merchandises will go up to size 3x was absolute music to my ears.
As a visible fat woman, plus size, whatever you want to call it, it’s always a win when a brand decides to add a plus size line or better yet simply extend their original line. It’s an acknowledgment that women like me love fashion and deserve to look good. And….. nothing like a one stop shop, grocery, and clothes shopping will be completed together.
A beautiful cloudy day at the most beautiful location ever! I just came back from a press trip from Grey County Ontario. I never knew such a beautiful place existed just a couple of hours north of Toronto. It was a fun filled weekend and we stopped at numerous places around Grey County including Coffin Ridge winery. For someone who has never been to a winery, I was very excited to say the least. I will share my travel experience with you in the next coming weeks.
Happy Friday loves! Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite recent purchases. I bought this cute gingham top a few weeks ago from all places Zara. Shocked ! Last I checked Zara virtually had nothing that fits this body of mine. I go there most times to check out the accessories and the kids’ section. Read More »
Happy Monday! Writing this post from our resort room at the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa in Jamaica. I wish you could see my view right now because it’s insanely beautiful. I can’t wait to tell you all about our amazing time here next week. In the meantime here is a little peek of the only outfit I shot here. I picked up this fabulous floral kimono from Penningtons right before our trip. Read More »
There are only 3 things I wish for on Mother’s Day: Lot of kisses and hugs from the boys and a cute dress for brunch. This will be my ninth year celebrating mother’s day. Where has time gone? Before we know it we’ll have full-blown teenagers. I feel incredibly blessed to have two happy, healthy children and an incredible husband. Read More »
