I Wish That I Could Say That I Am Proud To Be Curvy…But I Am Not

Based on my measurements, I am actually more square. So, I must say that I am proud to be square. Even though the heavens dipped me in chocolate, it forgot the bodacious round bottom and cocoa cola bottle waist.  Whenever I shop for clothing, I find that most clothes are made for women with the curvier body type often seen on plus sized models. I have found that I have to trick my clothing into thinking they were made just for me.

Belts to cinch the waist and a-line dresses to build up my hips are little tid-bits that I have learned to give the illusion of curves. I love my body in all of its squareness. But there are times when curves would be nice. What are some tricks that you have learned to showcase your beautiful body…curvy or not?


Holiday…Let’s Celebrate!!

Holiday is approaching super fast! Once Halloween comes, you can bet that someone will have a Christmas tree up in the mall or flashing lights at the entrance of their store on November 1st. Holiday is a great time to take advantage of some of the shopping deals that are out there.

If you are in need of new makeup or have been thinking about trying a line that you have not before, now is the time. Cosmetic companies spend a lot of time and money to pull together sets to optimize their business throughout the holiday season. I have scoured and shopped and tested some of best sets on counter this season. Here are a few for you to try!


This palette has 4 shadows that will compliment almost any skin tone. The shimmering gold, plum, smoked taupe and pink shadows are great to wear to all of those holiday parties you have lined up.










While wandering in the mall, I decided to check out Sephora and there was a ton of gift sets available. I ended up picking up the Stila “All Is Bright” Lip Glaze set for $25.00. It is a really sweet set. It has 8 semi-sheer colors that are not too sticky.








M.A.C. Cosmetics has always has an abundance of sets to choose from. My favorites are the pigments. A lot of people think that pigments can only be used on the eyes, but that’s not true.Pigments are so multi-faceted. You can mix them with glosses and nail polish. You can wear them as blush colors. Lots of options, RIGHT? 🙂

Guilty Passions Pigments $32.50










This set appealed to the practical me. I checked out Bobbi Brown. Bobbi Brown usually pulls out the punches for her holiday sets and this year she did not disappoint. The name of this set is called “From Coffee to Cocktails”. I like this set because it has long wear products in it. It has 2 long wear shadows, a long wear eyeliner and a longwear mascara. The lipstick is not longwear, but is one of their most popular shades.  A small black cosmetics bag comes with the set!
