I love me some clothes

Today was a wonderful shopping day!  My cousin is getting married in a few months at the beach and you know I have to be too cute for those vows.  I noticed one of my favorite places was having a dress sale.  You now how I love me some Old Navy.  Well, I walked out of there with three dresses.  You know I was happy about that.  However, there is another small victory that I have to tell you about.  

As you all know, I have been on a weight loss journey.  I use LoseIt to help me keep track of the calories that I eat and the workouts that I do.  Just last week, I had to add another hole to one of my favorite belts.  Since I was already at Old Navy, I decided to try on a pair of shorts.  For those of you that really know me, you know that I haven't worn a pair of shorts since I was a junior in high school.  Ok, let me get back to my story.  

I tried on a pair of shorts at Old Navy.  They were a smaller size (size 16).  I haven't been that size since I was a junior in high school.  In fact, that was the size I was when I was a cheerleader.  As I was pulling them up my legs, I got discouraged that just figured that I wasn't going to be able to get them over my thighs.  I did.  Then I got worried again because I was scared that I wouldn't be able to zip them or get them buttoned.  I did.  Needless to say, I walked out of Old Navy with those pair of shorts.  

I love shopping.  I love shopping even more when I get to buy a smaller size.  I'm not ashamed to say this - when I started this journey, I was wearing a solid size 24 in a dress.  I can now wear an 18 in dresses.  Now, my boobs haven't gone anywhere so I have just learned to deal with that.  However, I am learning to embrace my body.  I'm always going to be a plus diva and I am OK with that.  I like my curves.  I'm just glad that stores are embracing that some people are curvy.  

So, my special s/o today goes to LoseIt for helping me to continue to reach my goals and to Old Navy for just always being one of my favorite places to shop.  Now, I don't have any photos of me in my new outfits just yet, but when I do, I'll share them with you.  Happy shopping, plus divas, skinny divas, and to all the fabulous people of the world.  You deserve it!

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…
