Forever 21 Plus
Hey everyone! I hope you all are ready for the weekend! I decided to do a virtual shop tour of Forever 21 Plus. Forever 21 Plus is an amazing addition to Forever 21. When Forever 21 first launched their plus size line as Faith 21, I wasn’t felling it. Now I love it. Renamed Forever 21 Plus, this fast fashion plus size line is trendy and affordable. Forever 21 generally goes up to a size 3X. They don’t have While I wish these clothes occupied a larger portion of their physical store, they have a lot of options of cute clothes to choose from online. Today’s video is going to show that. Check it and a few of my favorite items out below.

These Plus Size Wrap Dresses From Forever 21 Plus Slay

plus size wrap dresses

plus size wrap dresses

Have you been looking for some plus size wrap dresses? I have. They have been my new obsession since I wore one to a wedding last year. A lot of people love how flattering they look. I like how comfortable they are. I also like how they make me look really curvy. I usually wear more fluid and loose things, but wrap dresses are tight at the top and loose on the bottom, so I can be sexy and comfy at the same time. I also don’t wear Spanx when I wear dresses like this because… I can’t stand tight things on my body and because the bottom of the dress just flows so freely.

TFAS Shop Tours-Witch Worldwide

Witch Worldwide

 

Witch WorldwideAre you ready to check out my first virtual shop tour featuring Witch Worldwide? I decided that I was going to do little virtual tours of stores that are either exclusively plus size or sell some plus size items. I think it is important to talk about these different stores because the plus size market has grown a lot since I first started blogging in 2009. There are a lot of different options available. While there still could be more options available, it is a start.

How I Save With Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons

Health, Beauty, & Wellness Groupons

Health, Beauty, & Wellness Groupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Would you like to know how I save with health, beauty, and wellness Groupons? Yes. You. Do. A few months ago I taught you all how to save with Groupon Coupon, now I want you to know about Groupon’s main website.  I know a lot of people have heard about and used Groupon, but I was surprised to see how many hadn’t down either of those things. A few days ago, a few of my sorority sisters and I planned a girl’s night out. Some of them used Groupon for the very first time when we bought our wine and paint class. I was shocked.

plus size shirt dress

I am loving this shirt dress from Missguided.  This plus size shirt dress is a nice nude color, and is long enough to wear to work and sexy enough to wearafter work for cocktails with the girls. I also think it looks great for date night too. One of the things that I think is great about shirt dresses is the fact that you can tie them at the bottom and wear them with jeans, or tuck them into a skirt. This plus size shirt dress looks really great with these shoes and this purse.  Photo from Missguided.

Get Easy Boho Chic Style With Avenue

Boho Chic

Boho Chic

Easy boho chic style is not hard to find at Avenue. They have a ton of great pieces for any occasion and style, but there boho chic pieces really caught my eye. They look so fun to wear, and they are very on trend with fashion today. I love when you can find some plus size clothes that fit today’s style instead of “new” plus size clothes that are seriously dated. Y’all know that is a pet peeve of mine. I really, really hate when certain plus size brands are behind the times. It is annoying. Anyway. These dresses that I found at Avenue are super cute and fun for the summer.

How To Ease Anxiety

HOW TO EASE ANXIETY

HOW TO EASE ANXIETY

After the events of last week, my anxiety has been on level 10. I have had a hard time sleeping and eating, and just trying to calm down has been very hard. My anxiety seems to flare up and then go back down again. I know there are bunch of people who are probably suffering from anxiety too. I wanted to make a guide to teach people how to ease anxiety. Here are a list of things that have helped me in those down periods.

Things That Have Helped Me Ease Anxiety

  1. Listening to music. I have been listening to this YouTube channel called YellowBrickCinema that has a ton of videos, many 6-8 hours  long, with different soothing sounds like nature sounds or calming guitar strokes.
  2. Watch your favorite YouTube channels. I have been watching Game of Thrones theory videos. Nonstop.
  3. Do some kind of craft. A few days ago, I finished sewing a sample for my clothing line, and then I sewed a tote bag using some Ant-Man themed fabric.
  4. Pray/Meditate. Get spiritual in whatever works for you.
  5. Watch trash TV or Netflix. I’ve been watching a few of my favorite period pieces on Amazon Prime. Pride and Prejudice is sooo relaxing. The Real Housewives of New Jersey also just started back up.
  6. Limit your social media/the news intake. Sometimes being in the know does more harm than good.
  7. Spend time with family and friends. Try and spend some time with your loved ones. Even if it is just a phone call,  you will feel much better after you speak with them.
  8. Play a game on  your phone or computer. Pokémon Go is so fun right now. It can also be used as a form of exercise because it gets you out and moving. Exercise raises your endorphins, and endorphins boost your mood.

Remember: Self-care is the best care.

Currently Craving These Sick Shoes From Boohoo!!!

Boohoo

Boohoo

I’m currently craving these sick shoes from Boohoo. They come in black and mocha, so you can wear them with pretty much anything. I also like that they are a pretty transitional shoe.  The Layla Caged Peeptoe Platforms should be easy to style in the summer and the fall. They look great in the summer with light wash jeans, short dresses, maxi dresses, and shorts. They also look great in the fall with light sweaters and your jeans rolled up or cuffed. I can also see people wearing these shoes to the club or out to brunch with friends.

The Layla Caged Peeptoe Platforms are really cute. I almost want to get both pairs. I do love a good platform! They instantly make you look taller, and they are easier to walk in. These shoes also fit into the huge 70s and 90s trends that are going in fashion right now. If you want to wear them 70s style, try the mocha pair with either some flared bell bottom jeans, or a boho chic dress. If you want to try the 90s trend, find a classic babydoll dress à la Courtney Love of Lisa Loeb, and then add some white knee high tights…because why not?!?! Fashion should be fun.  Get these shoes for $52.00 from Boohoo Night. Photos from Boohoo.

Eloquii Does Plus Size Shirt Dresses Like Nobody Else

eloquiishirtdresses

Eloquii does plus size shirt dresses like nobody else. Nobody translates current high-end designer trends quite like Eloquii. I always say this, but I am telling you the truth. If you look at Rosie Assouline, Christian Siriano, Miu Miu, Delpozo… you will see those same trends in the hottest pieces at Eloquii. I don’t know why they are able to do a better job at it than other plus size brands, but I applaude them. Seriously. As a plus size woman, one of the main things I want from  clothing brand is the latest trends. You know what I’m saying?! I don’t want the trends from two years ago, today.

Beauty Bit- Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask

Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask Review

Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask Review

I received the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask from Brandbacker. This is an honest review.

I was so grateful to receive a full sized sample of the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask. This mask was sooooo good. It smelled so fragrant when I opened the jar up. I couldn’t help myself. I just took another whiff of the mask. Like right now. I sniffed it. It is $25 on Amazon, and is a Prime item.

This mask dried my oily skin up. When I was done with the mask, my skin looked bright, clean, and very clear. It didn’t look anything like the hot greasy mess that walked into the bathroom earlier. The mask is supposed to be used for 15-20 minutes, and all you have to do is use the tiniest amount. I have a feeling that the 4 oz. jar is going to last me a long time.
