Be bold and bright

I was going to write about this yesterday and then I changed my mind.  Then today, it came back to my mind again because I feel like it is important.  It probably won't be my longest post, but I have to tell you something about one of my favorite things - clothes.  

Yesterday, I went shopping at one of my favorite places, Ashley Stewart.  I ended up buying 2 sweaters and 2 jeggings.  Well, the 2 pairs of jeggings that I purchased are bright (yellow and coral).  Yes, I love bright colors.  One of the other fabulous plus ladies in the store saw what I was buying and she said, "Those are bright.  I wish I was that brave".  I looked at her and told her, "I used to be like that, but if smaller people can wear bright colors, so can we".  

Seriously, I used to be like that.  I would stick to the black, browns, and blues.  I have a bright personality, so why not let my wardrobe reflect that?  Don't get me wrong, I try on everything before I leave the store.  Not all colors are going to look great on a person.  That is just how it is.  For instance, I will never wear another purple dress.  Did that a few years ago and I felt a few shades lighter than Barney.  

Find what looks good on you, but don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.  You never know, you might find a new style.

Big body, big hair

Earlier this week, I was cruising around the twitterverse and noticed a cool shirt floating around.  The shirt said, no you cannot touch my hair.  I thought it was funny, but it is a huge thing in the natural hair community that people do not like for their hair to be touched.  I might be the weird one because it honestly doesn't bother me.  Now, just don't come up to me and touch my hair, but if you ask and I'm feeling a bit friendly (LOL), I just might let you feel these beautiful natural curls that God so graciously gave me.  

In my opinion, my hair is awesome.  However, after my transition from processed to natural, I didn't always feel that was the case.  I was so used to my hair being straight and long.  But, I just kept cutting it shorter and shorter until I eventually did the big chop and I became 100% natural.  

I guess now, I feel more confident.  As the years have passed, I've been more confident in my body and now I'm a lot more confident in my hair.…

The Outsiders

It has been too much going on in the blogging world recently.  I mean, I know that any press is good press, but this might have been too much.  Then add it on top of that, you get people who don't blog chiming in talking about you're just doing it to get free stuff or get a real job or find something to do with your spare time.  Let me answer all three of those - I've been writing in The Plus Diaries for almost five years and have proudly made 25 dollars (by accident), I do work a full-time job with great benefits, and writing is just one of the things I do in my spare time.  For you nosey people, I also do crafts, travel, and currently studying for a couple of tests in my free time.  



Blogging is supposed to be fun!  That's why I got into it in the first place.  But trust me, I salute all the wonderful bloggers out there making money off their blogs.  That's awesome to me!  You are doing what you love and making money off it?  If the quote is true and they really l…

The Big Bang

It's been a while.  It truly has been a while.  I am typically great about telling you when I am taking a blogging break, but sometimes, life just comes at your fast.  At the end of January, life came at me hella fast.  Had it not been for the one blog post I had already written and set up to post, you would not have heard from me when you did.  But, I'm getting back to my feet and feeling more and more like my normal self.  

I know what you are thinking - what happened?!  Well, that's for me to know and for you to never find out.  There are some things in my life that I would rather keep personal and this is one of those times.  I've told the people who need to know and it will go no further than that.  But, let's get one to some fun stuff.  

I still have been active on my Instagram and Twitter pages.  I promised to keep you all updated on my weight loss madness that is happening and I've been trying to do so.  I don't want to turn into one of those people w…
