I'm Going to #BlogHer17!!

22 June 2017

I'm going to #BlogHer17 in Orlando!

Hey guys!!!  I'm going to #BlogHer17!!  I am soooooo excited!  It's in Orlando, which is a short (well, 3.5 hour) drive from me so it was totally a no-brainer to attend this year.  I can't wait to meet all of my #BloggerBoos!  This is my first big blogger conference and I am nervous but determined!  I've already got my strategy mapped out- or at least I think I do!  LOL

So please, if you're going, look for me!  If not, look for about a gazillion social media updates from me over the weekend.  Sorry #BloggerLaw.  LOL 

What blog conferences have you attended?

Plus Size Jeans for Apple Shapes

As a fashion blogger, I love to go shopping!   But every woman- regardless of her size, has at least one article clothing that she dreads buying.  For me, it's jeans.  Being plus size AND apple shaped, I have a hard time finding jeans that fit well in multiple areas.  Usually if it fits in the waist, it's wayyyy too big in the legs.  If it fits in the leg, I usually can't fasten them.  My answer to this problem has been either opting for jeggings or finding jeans that have a LOT of stretch. Usually higher than the normal 1% spandex blend.  I found these great looking and comfortable jeans at Catherines.  I've warned them a couple times and they've held up pretty well, plus I love the dark wash!. These have been my answer to finding great jeans for plus size apple shape bodies.  You can find Catherine's True Stretch jeans here.

Everybody Ready for Summer Until Summer Comes...

Usually, I don't even THINK about the beach!  But, here lately I've got beach fever like crazy!  I can't even explain it.  It might be because I've found some better beaches to go to that are in driving distance.  I absolutely LOVE Savannah GA but Tybee Beach is the WORST.  (Sorry, not sorry...)  It's always dirty, there's always a swim advisory and I mean, they don't even allow dogs....like, for serious?!  So, I'm probably going to head to Hilton Head Island, St. Simons Island and Daufuskie Island.  Watch, as soon as summer gets here, I'm going to crave fall.  I kinda hate hot weather...lol

Anyway, I picked out these awesome sunnies from GlassesShop.com.  They've got an amazing selection of eyeglasses- with or without prescription and sunglasses- with or without prescription.  GlassesShop even send them over in their own glasses case with a cleaning cloth.  The cleaning cloth I'm totally gonna need because these glasses are perfectly mirrored.  Hilariously, you can see me entire apartment in them.  LOL  I can't wait to get some super cool photos with the beach waves mirrored in these shades!

The Little App that Saved My Life...

28 February 2017


 morning person, i hate mornings, alarm clock apps, alarm clock apps that work, alarmy, late for work


I hate mornings!  For years and years I have struggled with getting up early in the morning.  I'm always late to wherever I'm going because I dread getting up and I drag around when I finally do get up.  This problem has cause me to suffer in my professional life and even in my social life.  I'd love to be one of those people who JUMPS up early in the morning and gets sooooo (stink face) much done but the truth is I work a lot better at night.  Oh yes, call me the night owl, baby!   I get a lot of stuff done in the midnight hour but the truthfully, the world is NOT kind those who are not morning people.  I have tried EVERYTHING- loud alarms, putting the alarm across the room, multiple alarms, you name it!  Nothing helped!  Not until I found one of the best apps that I have ever downloaded in my ENTIRE LIFE!   Enter Alarmy...

This app has saved me!  I promise, this is not a sponsored post at all.  The opinions here are all my own.  I love this app! 

 morning person, i hate mornings, alarm clock apps, alarm clock apps that work, alarmy, late for work

How Alarmy works:   There are several different settings for this alarm.  First of all, there are about 10 different alarm types but all of them are SUPER loud.  But not only that, you have to complete certain tasks or your choosing to turn it off.  For instance, you might have to take a picture of a certain thing in your house or shake the phone or do math problems, etc.  I chose math problem because I absolutely hate math almost as much as I hate mornings.  Anyway, I set the intensity to moderately hard and I have to do 3 math problems before I can turn the alarm off.  I've been using this alarm for almost six months and I have not hit snooze NOT ONCE since I have started using it. It taught me something about myself- before using this alarm, I would get to work and wouldn't completely wake up until about 1 or 2 o'clock in the afternoon.  I would be sooooo sluggish while getting dressed and soooo sluggish for the better part of the day.  Doing the math problems woke my brain up and I had to focus in order to complete them.  Being focused caused me to make better choices about whether or not to try and sneak in a few extra minutes of sleep in the morning.  Before, my groggy, sleepy brain would convince me that I had plenty of time when I really didn't.  Now that I am more focused in the morning, I'm also more focused during the day. I'm able to get more things done.  Yay!!  

I recommend this alarm app to anyone who struggles with getting out of bed and moving in the morning.  I can't say that I'll ever fall in love with mornings but I can say that they've gotten a little easier to tolerate using this app. Give it a try:

  Here for Android and Here for iOS
