5 Tips Video: Fitness Tips From A Fat Chick

Hi Beauties!

Happy New Year! I've started a new segment called "Five Tips". Feel free to suggest videos that you would like advice on. Today's tips surround fitness!!!

Check out the video below for all 5 of my tips!

Beautiffullyme's Fruit Smoothie:

2 scoops of protein powder
1 banana
1 cup frozen fruit
1 cup 30 calorie almond milk
1 tablespoon of honey

Scoop protein powder in your blender. Start slicing your banana. Put sliced pieces into the blender. Scoop frozen fruit, I really like the mixed berries blend, and add to the blender. Finally pour almond milk in the blender. Blend for about 2 minutes. Pout in honey as smoothie is mixing to avoid it sticking to the sides of the blender. Continue to blend until all ingredients are smooth. Enjoy!
Tip: No frozen fruit, no problem. Use fresh fruit and add ice!

My Tips:

2. Vitamins
3. Meal Prep & Smaller meals. Shoot for 6 meals daily.
4. Fitness
5. You. Can. Do. This!!!!! Don't let weight loss discourage you!

I hope I was able to help. Make sure to watch Part 2 to get my stats!

Until Next Time....

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Hi Beauties!

It's holiday season and I couldn't be more excited! I love this season for fashion and nothing makes a bigger impact than a feather sweater, tutu, and red pumps. Ha! I know this look can be considered a little out of the norm but what better time to go all out and strut your stuff? Plus with these high temperatures this look keeps things easy breezy.

This look began back in October when I walked into my local Charlotte Russe looking for a cute top to wear out. Instead I walked out of the store with a beautiful, white, $5 tutu. Yes, you read that right. Five Dollars!! I can't remember why or what sale was going on but I knew right then a winter look would be the result.

The holidays came at me FAST. We just relocated to NC in late October. So pulling together this look had to be effortless and easy. I had no time to shop for hours or hit various stores.

Get The Look:

Top: I used a sweater from a previous blog post Catch it here. You can find a similar sweater at Ashley Stewart for only $36!
Skirt: Charlotte Russe. Sadly it's no longer $5 BUT they are having a lot of mega sales so keep checking.
Shoes: Just Fab They are sold out but Citi Trends has a few sizes left of the same shoe with the nice price of $20

I hope you and the ones you love have a wonderful holiday season!
Until Next Time......

I'm Back And I'm Better

Hi Beauties!

I've missed you all. A LOT has happened in the past few months for me and my family so blogging took a backseat. I titled this "I'm Back And I'm Better" because that's truly how I feel about this blogging passion of mine. I will hit my year anniversary in January and I have learned so much in such a little amount of time. I'm working on a Youtube video now of my feelings, upcoming videos, and my plans for my year anniversary giveaway. Stay tuned! But for now let's get back to these clothes honey!

First and foremost this Fashion To Figure dress gives my curves the right amount of bodycon without going over the top. The draping is EVERYTHING! I purchased this dress a few months ago so the dress is no longer available BUT I will list a close option below for those of you that want to recreate this fall look.

Get the Look:
Hair: Her Hair Company
Dress: Fashion to Figure
Shoes: Torrid (sold out) Find similar here
Coat: BooHoo

 I paired the dress with this GORGEOUS Camel colored coat from Draped coats have been so on trend lately so I had to get my hands on one. It didn't break the bank either because you know I love fashion on a budget!

I usually NEVER take back photos because they look horrible. But this one turned out cute. Plus you can see the lengths of these two gorgeous garments!!!

I'm keeping this post short and sweet. Today is black Friday and I want you ladies to snag these pieces on a DEAL. 

Thank you for still rocking with me. Until next time.....

Vanity Curves Collaboration

Hi Beauties!

I'm back with another blog post, this time highlighting a boutique here in the Dallas area. None other than Vanity Curves Boutique!

I recently celebrated my 29th birthday on August 26th. I wanted to step out of my usual comfort zone with this outfit for my birthday. I would describe this look as......interesting. Ha! :)

So! Mixing prints was the plan. My blogging Shero, Lisa from, said this skirt would be perfect with a mixed print. I took that suggestion and created a look that I loved. This look may be out there for some, which I get since the different prints are SO bold, but I completely adore it. I felt pretty on my birthday. As a women feeling pretty is an amazing feeling, so I went with it.

Get the Look:

Tribal Necklace: Forever 21
Printed Body Suit: I can't remember :( If anyone knows the boutique I purchased from please tag or send me a message, I'd love to give credit to them. It was a 3am splurge buy back in December. Don't judge me.
Skirt: Vanity Curves Boutique
Shoes: Torrid

Storytime: How I learned about Vanity Curves Boutique

So about 2 months ago, I was invited to my very first meet and greet. I was excited because it was held at a local boutique, the guest of honor was the talented  plus size designer Chenese Lewis, and finally I could rub elbows with some of DFW's baddest BBW's. The boutique is SUPER cute and was decorated beautifully. The first person that walked up to me was Kristen, the owner, making sure I was warmly welcomed and showed me the items in the store. I love a woman with excellent customer service. Add to that the cleanliness and professionalism throughout the store I was sold. Looking around I eyed this beautiful full skirt with a nice bold print. These skirts have been on trend and I had to have it. The fit was perfect, I wear a 2X, this skirt fits me like it was made especially for me. The prices were also great because as y'all know I'm not dropping stacks on my clothing. I know there are quality clothing and stores that don't require you to spend your entire paycheck on fashion and Vanity Curves Boutique is shopper friendly!

I really hope you click the link to this local boutique. She has amazing pieces for you ladies to buy. If you are local she also has various events held at her store front and a glam bar for those ladies who are looking for hair, makeup,and fashion all in one location. Happy Shopping and tell Kristen I sent you!

Until next time....

Sunshine and Thick Thighs

Hi Beauties!

I wanted to do a "swimsuit"post and share some of my vacation photos with you. Me and my family drove down to Corpus Christi, TX for some well deserved fun and relaxation. The sunshine, the cool breeze, and the beach was just what we needed!

A lot of plus bloggers did their swimsuit posts earlier in the year, which is great for those that have planned vacations. For me, I work A LOT, and unfortunately with the career that I chose a lot of my vacation time gets cancelled due to my school needing me. So having a vacation on the calendar doesn't mean I'm going. Furthermore, I fluctuate in weight and sizes. If I were to purchase a swimsuit in February, I may or may not be able to fit it in July. I may be 2 sizes down or up and with fatkinis you want a good fit.

So I decided to make a post for my "last minute" beauties who are doing the impromptu vacations, deciding toward the end of the summer to take a splurge and show their belly, or the ladies who genuinely didn't realize that to find all the swimsuits they love they needed to shop months ago. LOL ;) As always I will link my personal outfits but I will also link some places that still have swimsuits. Happy shopping!

Bohemian Babe:

Fringe Swimsuit: EyeCandy Inc Boutique
Bohemian Kimono: Fashion To Figure (psstt..40% off going on right now)
Shades: Find Similar Lane Bryant
Shoes and Bag: JustFab
Skirt: From my "Sexy Starburst" post

My look revolved around the swimsuit. I am absolutely addicted to fringe. The top has REALLY great hold and the fringe covers me without being restricting. I definitely plan to re-wear the top in a non-swim way. I can see it already. When I saw the kimono from FTF, I figured I'd go the bohemian route. Picked up some"groovy" shades from my local Lane Bryant, added a big white gold studded bag, and a pop of color with my skirt to finish off this look. I'm really happy about how it turned out.

On to the next look.....

Pink Half Shirt: It's Fashion Metro
Swimsuit Top: Lane Bryant
Swimsuit Bottom: Find Similar Forever 21+ 
Skirt: Find Similar Forever 21+


When wearing swimsuits everyone is at a different confidence levels. Even though the "fatkini" movement is strong, I still wanted to demonstrate how a swimsuit and cover-up can work for different body types. I personally always decide if I'm showing off my upper or lower body. I never show off both at the same time. Not because it violates a fashion rule but it makes me feel comfortable doing one or the other. If you ever look at my photos you'll notice that if my legs are out, my top is more covered or vise-versa. With that being said I wanted to highlight both options in this look. Both the skirt and the half top were old items from my closet that I reused for this look. Look in your own closet for pieces that could double as cover-ups before going out to shop for one. I felt great in both looks. Of course they were SUPER comfy, no pinching or pulling for me.

If you're still looking for swimwear look at these websites:

Also keep in mind if these sites have a actual store, the store may have the swim pieces at a lower discount as they are gearing up for fall and need the rack space. So if you have the time, walking into your local store may totally be worth the trip. Nothing like sunshine and thick thighs to set the summer off! Go get you some.

Until next time......

**Keep in mind these are TRUE vacation photos. No photographer, no edits, no lighting adjustments, nothing! Just my family snapping pictures on my Samsung.**
