Sugar Me!

A little over a year ago, I tried something new.  I had never had the goddess waxed.  I had heard too many horror stories.  Then, after some madness, I decided to never shave again.  I think I've given you just enough background, but if not, check out the post concerning my first experience right here.
Now that we have cleared that up, let's continue.  Yesterday, it was time for me to go and get sugared.  Just in case you were wondering, I make an appointment every 5 to 6 weeks!  Seriously, I'm on text terms with my sugar specialist.  If she's running late, she'll text me.  If I'm running late, I'll text her.  If she needs to bump my appointment, she will let me know.  We are just cool like that.  
It is hard to believe that in January of 2015, I was having my first sugaring experience.  About 15 months ago, I was terrified of what my experience would be like - not because of the pain, but because of what I thought they people would say about my body.  Howeve…

Four Facts Tag

I'm sort of excited to be part of this tag!  This will be a first for me and I love trying new things.  The fabulous Theo Person from the Wallflower Kronicles tagged me and I was more than ready to accept the challenge.  I've looked through a few posts of people who have already done this and I cannot wait to share with you in my own unique way.  

I will actually be sharing seven distinct things and under those distinct things, there will be 4 of my favorites of that particular item.  I guess you are actually going to learn 28 things about me, but I think this adds to the twist.  Why seven?  Well, I guess I can give you that answer for free - 7 is the number of completion.  That just means a little something to me, even though it is not my favorite number.  I cannot wait to tag some other bloggers so that we can learn a little bit more about them.  However, let me get to the reason you are learn a little bit more about me!  

There is absolutely no particular order, oth…

4 miles

This past weekend, I took a trip to the beach.  Absolutely had an amazing time and the timing couldn't have been more perfect because the prior two weeks before had been a bit challenging.  Won't go into the details of that madness, but it was rough.  I left Friday afternoon and about five hours later, I arrived at my destination.  

I hadn't been to Atlantic Beach, NC since I was in the seventh grade.  Yep, that's been a long time.  However, I remember it being a really nice beach and I loved how quiet it was.  Other than some new buildings, it was still quiet and I loved it!  

I told my dad that I wanted to go walk on the beach and that is what we did Saturday morning.  Just needed some daddy-daughter time.  Since I'm an only child, I don't particular pull towards one parent.  Sometimes, I only want one of them and other times I want both of them - it truly depends.  That time was interesting because of my decision.  

To most people it was chilly, but to me, the …

The sex files

None of you have ever just came right out and said it, but I think some of you have been waiting on a post about sex.  I know it is a subject a few of my fellow bloggers touch on.  Honestly, I love how open they are about the subject and how comfortable they seem with the subject.  Maybe that's the word I've been looking for...comfortable.  

It's no secret that my ship has left the virgin island.  If you didn't know that, I just ask you to take a look at some of my posts and check out what I have to say.  However, it's just not something I like to talk about because I'm not comfortable.  Am I comfortable in my sexuality?  Yep.  I know who I am and what I am.  I'll tell you like I told a really good friend of mine - I like bats and balls and I prefer people that have them naturally in the same place.  That made him laugh, but it also made him realize that I'm just myself and I'm going to say what's on my mind.  But my sexuality isn't the probl…

My chill pill

Disclaimer:  Not sure if I have ever touched on this subject before and I really don't want to go back and look through everything I've written.  So, if I have, I'm just going to go a lot deeper and if I haven't, thank goodness I'm starting from the very beginning.  Either way, I hope you enjoy this and I hope that it (in some way) helps! 

For just over a decade (probably a little longer), I've suffered from depression and issues concerning anxiety.  The depression, in my opinion (of the opinion of a medical professional) is doing a lot better.  However, the anxiety, not so much.  

Quite frankly, I think the anxiety caused the depression.  I can remember being in middle school and going to a school dance and not really feeling like being around all my friends.  I sort of hung on the wall.  Then, it flipped in my brain that no one wanted to hang out with me.  That made me feel depressed because the only thing I could think about was I'm a likable person, so wh…

Big body, little store

Over the weekend, I had the absolute best unexpected surprise.  Let me set this up.  I'm a plus size woman.  Hence the name of this blog.  I write about my life and all that comes with it - shopping adventures, when I don't feel pretty, when I've been hurt about my size, stuff like that.  When you see me talk about going to Guess, you know that more than likely, I'm walking out of there with a pair of shoes, a pocketbook, a wallet, or a combo of two or all three.  If you hear me talk about Old Navy, you know I'm about to do some serious damage getting me some fantastic clothes.  That's just how it happens in my life.  

So, on Saturday, I met up with a really good friend of mine to have an early dinner.  I really needed some sushi in my life and that had to happen.  We got to the place early and of course, they were not open.  We decided to go for a walk and check out some of the shops.  So, there was a cute little boutique next to where we were going to eat.  Sh…
