On September 16th, Ashley Stewart will select it’s newest campaign model! Last month, I got to be a judge in the Finding Ashley Stewart Model Search here in Nashville. More than 100 ladies from Nashville and surrounding cities strutted their stuff in Green Hills Galleria. We selected two amazing ladies to represent Nashville, Saaneah and Theresa.
The finalists will be awarded a one year contract to model for Ashley Stewart clothing stores. And, there’s talks that Ashley Stewart will return to Nashville in 2018! You know I’ll keep you posted. So, take a look at the VLOG below and see all the beautiful plus-size women show their beautiful selves on the runway!
Y’all! Y’all! Y’all! Go see Odysseo – Cavalia! I have to admit, when I was contacted by the Odysseo team, I wasn’t too hype to see the ‘fancy horse show’. If you live in Nashville, you’ve seen the, almost, cryptic banners, posters, signs, billboards, and yard signs, telling you that Odysseo by Cavalia is the ‘GREATEST show you’ll ever see’. Seriously, I was over it. But then . . . GIRL, I saw the show! It IS THE GREATEST SHOW YOU’LL EVER SEE! Let’s talk about it!

I was really in my feelings about not attending New York Fashion Week this September! But I had to take those lowkey jealous feelings and turn them into something creative. So, I decided to check out some of my favorite NYFW street-style photogs and be inspired by fly fall style. NYFW (or any fashion week) is the perfect time to take a chance with fashion. Push the limit a bit, try something you’ve never tried, and add some FAB to your confidence. Get inspired by the looks below:
We are in that wacky time between summer and fall. In fashion, we call this pre-fall. In my closet, we call this WAR! Living in Tennessee, but being from Massachusetts, I’m always at war with my fall sensibilities. I’m the person who is happy that Pumpkin Spice is back, ready to wear all the layers, and waiting for the first bonfire invite. But, even I know that we won’t get those TRUE fall temperatures until late October, maybe even November. Sigh.
That’s why, when I was contacted by Simply Be to review some of their plus-size looks, I was excited. Simply Be has an EXPANSIVE collection of items. Like, dude, theirs 100’s of looks! Their range of sizes are from 8-28, which is AWESOME! Also, their comment section, under each item, is very informative. The shoppers do a good job of sharing if an item worked for them, it’s quality, and value.
Below, I share the three pieces I received from Simply Be. This is a sponsored post, but I’m gonna keep it ALL the way real with you. I hate to waste money, and I’d hate you to waste money too. Lets get it:
I almost forgot to post last week’s VLOG! My goal is to give you a new video every week. I love sharing parts of my life with you and living in Nashville as well. You know, because Nashville is POPPING right now. Anyway, this week’s VLOG documents me going to the Urban Soul Cafe All-White Worship Experience and attending the Jefferson Street Art Crawl.
I’ve been blogging for like 17 million years, so I have about 49,000 posts about Wearing White After Labor Day. So, when I realized I hadn’t worn this CUTE dress from Ashley Stewart, it inspired me to write about the topic again. So, are we or are we NOT wearing white after Labor Day? Let’s discuss.
When I was contacted by Cars.com to do a post about using their website to buy a car, I wanted to make sure I kept it real. I’ve purchased a couple of cars in my lifetime and I’ve made a ton of mistakes. So, I complied a list of steps to help you get the car that you want with the help of Cars.com.
Make a Wish – The photo, above, is me standing next to my dream car, a Chevy Equinox. Well it’s not my DREAM dream car (that’s a Mercedes G-Wagon) but it’s the next car I need to push me forward. I love the Chevrolet brand, I need a crossover vehicle, and I want something that I can drive for a couple years. Make a wish fr what you want, it’s the first step to get you on the road to having the confidence to getting what you want.
Do your Research – After you’ve decided on you next dream vehicle, do your research. Cars.com is a great place to compare car prices on you next vehicle. The good thing about cars.com, is that they can tell you about cars that are right in your neighborhood. Within a 20 mile radius you can compare prices form several dealers. Doing your research gets you prepared for your next step.
Save Your Money – Yup! There’s no way we are gonna get through a car-buying post without talking about saving money. I think that was my biggest mistake in buying my last car. I didn’t put enough money down in order to lower my car payment. Luckily, my job paid me a good wage, so I was able to make my car payments on time. Next time, I def want to put more money down to decrease my loan time, help me with my overall budget, and give me more financial security.
Take your time – I know, I know. You really want you car RIGHT now, and you might even need a car right now. But take your time. Once you’ve used Cars.com to find the car dealership to purchase from, go to the shop with confidence. Take your time, test drive your dream car, ask a ton of questions, and don’t be afraid to WALK AWAY if you don’t feel comfortable with the purchase. Remember, you will be responsible for this car for at least five years, you need to feel confident about your purchase.
Get what you want – Using the Cars.com website, you should feel confident to get what you want. Remember, this is your dream car. This is something you are spending a huge amount of money on. And, you need to feel amazing about your purchase.
So, I hope this helps you with your future car-buying experience. Ladies, be confident when you step into the building. Don’t let anyone pressure you into buying something you can’t afford or don’t want. Use the cars.com website to guide you into your perfect purchase!
I know, I know, it’s still warm outside, especially in Tennessee. But, I’m already thinking about Fall 2017! Now, we are no where near pumpkin spiced lattes and lots of layer, but we can start adding some fall features to our hot weather looks. Below, I’ve assembled some very fab looks to help you transition into fall while still rocking summer style. Basically, how do you dress for fall when it’s still super hot?! Let’s get started!
Summer is coming to a close but I can’t let it leave without wrapping up my FAVORITE campaign! The #ShowYourArms campaign was amazing for a second year in a row.As you know, the #ShowYourArms campaign is an online photo tagging campaign that was created to celebrate body positivity. The simple act of showing your arms (wearing a sleeveless shirt or dress) is one step to celebrate the body that you have right now. Sharing your body positive photo online can only help your other women feel more confident too!
This year I wanted to have more than 1000 tags. We didn’t quite reach that goal, but I was excited to receive the support of a some of the TOP Plus Size Blogger in the game including Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista, Cece Olisa the Founder of Curvy Con, Ty Alexander of Gorgeous In Grey , and Amber from Stye Plus Curves. Asking these ladies to join the movement was so scary for me to do. Everyone hates rejection! But they happily said yes, and I couldn’t be more pleased!
On top of that, so many readers from across the globe tagged their photos on Instagram and joined the movement! From Paris, to Holland, to right here in Nashville, everyday I saw new photos being tagged with the #ShowYourArms tag! This year we had 400 tags! Wow! And, when I attended the #TCFStyleExpo, I had so many ladies come to me saying how they were proud of the campaign.
So, THANK YOU! Thank you for participating, spreading the word, standing in solidarity, and being confident. Next year, oh, I got plans! We WILL hit the 1000 tag mark! But more importantly, we will set more women free to love the body they have, fat arms and all!
