Everyone knows I adore sewing. My specialty is childrens’ wear and soon it will extend to prom/formal. I get a lot of request for plus sized fashions. I appreciate all of the request, but plus isn’t my niche and I honestly don’t have enough experience with it to even do it justice. Today I thought I would honor my plus size fashionistas, by sharing some super cute & affordable swim wear just for them!

I get a lot of complaints on the way plus sized swim wear is made. Poor fit, No support, not enough options, only one pieces etc. I hope you like my top picks. Read More

Song-Mine Would Be You

My official decision to rename the Inspiration category to Dear Penelope is now in full effect. I try to be 100% transparent on my Instagram which transcends to my blog. Each Dear Penelope post will start off with a quote related to that particular topic. Just like this one! Think of this category as my personal diary….hence the name Dear Penelope.

The inspiration category is obviously meant to inspire my readers as I share my opinions,advice and stories about my life. I love to run my mouth, I enjoy a good debate and if you know me….I’m very opinionated. Never fear!….these posts won’t all be dreary. Although some of these thoughts may trigger me, I know deep down they will help someone. Read More

I know I’m late BUT my Valentines Day outfit got a lot of attention so I’ve recreated it for you lovelies. My outfit was purchased last minute from Forever 21. I raided the store and got everything on clearance. I felt so bad for shopping because I ordered my initial outfit from Amazon. Let’s just say….that first outfit was a dud.

I woke up super early Feb 13 and headed to the mall (I dread the mall BTW) My first stop was Forever 21, I figured I could find something cute, affordable and QUICK. If you’re wondering why I dread the mall, it’s because it’s so huge. Looking through all the racks is overwhelming for me and simply not fun. I had my heart set on thigh high velvet boots and maybe a short dress. After much digging, my eyes gravitated to a gorgeous faux leather skirt.  It was love at first sight! Read More

Get The Look


Love is pretty tricky. Did you know that we all like to be loved differently? Movies and sitcoms usually show love as a “knight”  in shining armor, tall dark & handsome, fairy tail kinda deal. The truth is love is a different experience for everyone, the only consistent part is that we all have our own way we like to be loved…..no matter who we’re dating at the time.

I found a YouTube video on Love Language and also dug deeper to find there’s a whole book! The video I watched was narrated by the author. I enjoyed every minute of it and learned so much. Read More

The title is long but yes, you read it correctly. This is my first 2 part Confessions Of A Lush. We are still in Love & Lust month so of course I had to talk about a few personal experiences. I hope you enjoyed the video that lead you to this second part. If you haven’t watched it, I have included it below.

Self Pleasure

I honestly thought orgasms were imaginary….kinda like Unicorns. They were always this magical unattainable thing for me. UNTIL I tried a vibrator. Self pleasure is a great way to explore your body, you have to learn what makes you “tick”. You’ll learn what works and what doesn’t work. This is a great way to have better sex. You may not orgasm from penetration still….but there’s a greater chance that you will. Read More

Let’s talk about Sex And other things!

Technically we aren’t talking about sex today…we’re talking about people who talk about sex, love, and relationships. Listening to these guys brings me back to the days I watched Talk Sex With Sue, Real Sex, Cat House and those prepaid porn channels OMGEEZUS, can’t believe I said that….I was way too young (15ish)

I’ve been wanting to dive into the podcast world. Since this months topic is Love & Lust I figured sex/relationship podcast would be awesome. Read More

Welcome to the lovely month of February! I’m a sucker for love soooooo this is my favorite month besides my birthday month (September). If you noticed last month, I tested out blogging by a theme last month. I loved it and will continue to do so. Each month will have a magazine cover to highlight everything you need to look out for.

Love & Lust

This months theme is Love & Lust. In honor of this fiery month of all things love! The cover and topics are pretty spicy! But there will be some subtle things included as well. Love Language and the podcast suggestions are topping out as my fav things to share this month. Read More

I’m not interested in losing weight right now but would like to tighten and tone. I’ve always loved Yoga & Pilates. I follow TONS of Instagram accounts and envy what they are able to do with their bodies.

I chose Yoga & Pilates because it’s easy to start and extremely rewarding. While putting together my routine the focus was Strength and Toning. I also need quick workouts because I’m super busy! Balancing mom life, work & business is a daily struggle. No gym membership or tools are needed, right up my alley! Read More

Yogi Fashions


So I’m super late  sharing this outfit, but it’s almost Valentine’s Day so I just had to! Online shopping can be tricky, luckily I do it a ton, so I’m here to share my fab finds with you! Clothing always looks amazing on the model but how will  it look on you? I’m happy to say this dress was a winner and looked EXACTLY as it did on the model. A major plus, this dress and necklace are budget friendly under $40, but you’ll look like a million bucks.

For my 30th birthday I was on the hunt  for something sultry yet sexy. I needed something that wasn’t my norm. I searched for about 2months before I found this dress. It was a total struggle BUT nothing worth while is easy!

I’m now at the age where I have to watch my weight. When I’m feeling a little “fluffy” I pull out the soup and smoothies.1 week minimum, 2 weeks tops. It sounds boring but trust me it’s so exciting. Also don’t worry about your cravings and missing your favorite snacks. After a full day on this diet your cravings should vanish. I use this to get rid of bloat. If you do it longer, it may burn fat.

This month we are focusing on Forever Bodies instead of Summer Bodies! After having children its hard to get your body back. There’s always something we wont like about ourselves. At first I was too skinny, then I felt fat again….now I’m almost in love with my body all over again. Read More
