Personal Style | prAna Makes Going From Workout to Work Day Easy!

Beauties,

If there is one thing I love, you all know it is a multi-functional wardrobe.  I love being able to take an item and wear it multiple places.  It doesn't just stop at work or date night attire; I feel the same way when it comes to my workout clothes.  Why?  Well, you know how it goes!.  I may go for a walk in the park then need to go to the grocery store and even the mall.  I love workout clothes that can take me to all of those places and still allow me to be cute, comfortable and fashionable.  prAna gives me that and more!  prAna not only offers great multipurpose clothing, but sustainable, recycled, fair trade certified and hemp items as well.  You all know I'm into organic and it's great that my clothes can be organic too!

Beauty | Three Reasons I Decided to Switch to All Natural Deodorant

Beauties,

I'm addicted to skincare products, particularly natural skincare.  I have been using natural skincare products for years now.  I truly believe transitioning to natural skincare is what has given me clearer, glowy skin.  Surprisingly, though, it never occurred to me that maybe natural deodorant could be a good thing to start using too.  I remember chatting with a dear friend of mine about natural deodorant.  She lived a pretty healthy lifestyle, including working out and constantly eating all natural foods, but even she refused to do all natural deodorant.  She said that she just couldn't find one that kept her fresh throughout the day.  After that conversation, I truly didn't think about natural deodorant for years.  This all changed when I came across this video on YouTube.

Personal Style | Ruffles Galore

Beauties,

While in Atlanta last weekend, my friends and I discovered the most amazing Target.  It was my first time walking into a Target and seeing an entire, huge section dedicated to women's plus size clothing.  Plus, it was my first time visiting a Target that actually sells the plus size Who What Wear Collection in store.  You all know I almost passed out, right?  We literally walked into the store about 20 minutes before closing so I had to rush to get what I actually came in for then rush back to the clothing area to feast my eyes on everything.  I was in absolute love!  My friend Kiki of ByKikisol found the shirt I'm wearing in today's post and held it up for me to see.  Instant love, but...  I left it in the store.

Events | Three of My Favorite Fabulous Moments from the 2017 TCFStyleExpo

Beauties,

I have been back from the TCFStyleExpo an entire week and I am still missing all of the fabulous ladies I met in Atlanta.  This was my first year attending the TCFStyleExpo, which is a two-day plus size fashion event created by The Curvy Fashionista that includes shopping, panels and workshops and fashion shows.  It was such a great experience!  From the Cobb Galleria to the surrounding area, I loved the venue and the area of Atlanta it was located in.  A venue that is easy to find with great hotels and restaurants nearby and even a mall right across the street is a definite win!  Now that I am home, I have had time to reflect on the weekend and I want to share three of my favorite moments from the weekend.

Personal Style | Vintage African Print Kimono

Beauties,

When it comes to vintage pieces, there are few things I love more than a great print.  I particularly love vintage African prints.  DivaXpress is the queen of finding fabulous prints (see here) so when she sent me this kimono a few weeks ago, I literally squealed when I pulled it out of the box.  I knew it would be the perfect piece to wear over a swimsuit, jeans and a tee and even an item I could take into fall and winter.  I had to take it on a spin as soon as I could.  I opted to keep my look super simple.  I think I'm going through a temporary phase of wanting "no fuss" outfits and this was so easy to create.
