Be Your Own Damn Disco Ball In Isolated Heroes Plus Size Line

Do you like the nightlife? Do you like to boogie? If you answered yes to any of these questions then chances are you also are a fan of disco balls and shiny things. Me, too. There was a time in the not so distance past where plus-size women were relegated to loose fitting bland clothes, empire waist dresses, and a-line skirts. Okay, that’s also still happening in the present. With brands like Isolated Heroes expanding

My Struggles With Food & Eating Disorders in Flavor Town aka the Guy Fieri Look Book

Reading “Guy-talian Nachos” and “Awesome Pretzel Chicken Tenders” off of Guy Fieri’s Guy’s American Kitchen Bar Menu was when I realized that I had maybe hit rock bottom. Not because I was in NYC at a Guy Fieri restaurant (also, no shade…. I clearly love Guy), but because I was at work in Chicago and somehow had spent an hour looking at Guy Fieri menus.  This was really common for me to spend hours looking

Boys Wanna Be Her

Boys Wanna Be Her  They sure fricken do. Ladies and gentleman and everything between, I have been slacking on you all. Things have been so crazy since moving because I’m out here hustling. In the 9 weeks I’ve been here I’ve only slept in once… that kind of hustling. My brain is extremely fried right now. Yolo. But, I promise I got some fresh funky fantastic coming your way soon. Since moving to LA I’ve

Moving and Grooving My Jiggle In My Pakrat

Every chubby and fat chick knows what it’s like to be in the gym while people stare as you jiggle on the treadmill. Instead of focusing on your body you’re focusing on “am I jiggling too much?” and “shit, are all those people laughing at me?” We feel shame at the gym and we’re shamed if we don’t go to the gym. It makes taking care of your body pretty damn difficult when you’re shamed

Rocking The GabiFresh Milestone Bikini To Ring In My Bikiniversary

She Wore An Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Cactus Bikini Last year in March I was on vacation in San Diego. Not only that, but I had recently purchased a ballin out dope bikini from the GabiFresh x Swimsuitsforall 2016 line. On our last day in San Diego I finally worked up the courage to do a photoshoot in my beautiful fatkini. The whole entire shoot I was nervous as hell and embarrassed even though there

The Definitive Chunky & Funky Guide to Chicago

Cool Things To Do In Chicago I’m going to start with my favorite thing to do and that’s sit by Lake Michigan. Go sit by the water on a warmish winter day or watch the boats come into the harbors and you won’t be amazing. Some mornings I wake up early just to go watch the sun rise over Lake Michigan. Damn, it’s so fricken beautiful. If you don’t spend time at the Lake or

Orange Creamsicle Velvet Dress & Duster From Boohoo Plus

Velvet is at an all time high So why not take it to the next level? This winter velvet is popping up everywhere as it should because it’s hella soft while our skin is dry and crackly. It’s all about balance, right? I’ve been going strong in the velvet game technically since I was a baby, but most recently the past few years. You’ve seen me rock some pink crushed velvet and a velvet crop

I’m Just Too Much For You… In My Isolated Heroes Sequin Duster

” I fucks with you ’til I realize I’m just too much for you. I’m just too much for you.” – Beyonce (because she knows everything) Some of us are wasting time being disingenuous, not to other people, but to ourselves. We worry “am I too much of this or not enough of that?” Well, the truth is for some people we are too much or not enough. That’s just how it goes. Instead of

Finding my set point weight and happiness at my heaviest

The story of before and after my fear of 210 I had an irrational fear of a number. This number consumed me. It scared me. 210 caused me anxiety. Everything was wrong with 210. 210 was unacceptable. It was the tipping point. 210 represented failure. Since I was 18 I’ve touched 210 every other year, if not every year.  Before 210, I always feared 200. When I touched 200, though, my new fear became 210.

Self Love Brings Beauty… and a lot of other cool stuff

Self love brings beauty When you’re caught up in everything that’s wrong with you then you can’t see everything that’s right with you. You see someone else’s success as a reflection of your failures. You see someone else’s beauty and wish you looked like them. Then maybe you’d be happy. DAMN, BUT FORGET THAT NOISE. One person’s beauty doesn’t define another’s beauty. None of us are made the same and comparing yourself to someone else’s
