Shopping with my birthday gift cards (my bday was Oct 14th)...my friends and fam threw a surprise birthday party for me... They really blew me away with the cake, food, bubbly, gifts..I had a blast. Anywhoo, I decided to wear this wig that I bought at least a year ago. Its called RIHANNA III ...Its a bob, the back is totally short...so cute. My vintage dress was $1.75 at the thrift store. That was a good day!!

Garage Sales are my favorite Saturday morning ritual.. So many treasures to sort from..I usually go to the "uppity" neighborhoods because in many cases the wealthy are more likely to bore quickly from an overabundance and tend to sell their items dirt cheap. Garage sales are a great way to purge while ridding oneself of excess and making a pretty penny in the process! A while back I promoted my garage sale on Craigslist, posted signs and even attached balloons to my mailbox to encourage people to stop and shop. I started at 8 am in the morning and by noon I had close to $300 dollars in my pocket. CHA-CHING! I made a huge dent in my junky garage and cashed in at the same time. Its alot of work but well worth it in the end...the stuff that you have left you can drop off at the Goodwill. To make it even more fun, invite friends to sell their things as well..its like making money for hanging out... Happy Garage Sailin'...

Some would see me out and about and consider me morbidly obese because they would never want to be my size in a million years. I can imagine some women would rather drink clorox on ice than to be as big as me.
So the debate is; Should plus size women refer to themselves as curvy when society sees us as FAT??? Hmmm?? Both sides of the spectrum could argue this topic back and forth all day, whether or not these little video chicks with boobs and a pinch of badonk are curvy... and/or.. Are my fellow plus size divas PHAT or FAT?
After its all said and done, I am who I say I am. You are whoever you say you are...just like that chick who is a 12/14 but always claims to be a size 4/6...let her be whoever she wants to be. She may get the side eye and a twisted lip topped with a YEAH RIGHT but who really cares? Is there a blue ribbon and a trophy at the end of the day?? I think we are all guilty of sizing people up LITERALLY...I'm so over it...I can care less what you see when you look in the mirror...I'm all for positive self image regardless what the scale says. I'm all about promoting high self esteem and working your assets! Find that part of you that is your strength and bedazzle the crud out of it!! *2 snaps in a Z formation! HMPH!
Feels good to finally get this rant out of my system..DO YOU ladies..stop worrying about the next chick...last time I checked none of my naysayers were around when it was time to pay my bills so they can kick rocks in some flip flops!! Work what you have ladies, whether you have a little or a LOT...DO YOU!
So if you are pretty in the face but thick in the waist, SO BE IT! If you are small, big gut, flat butt or down with the itty bitty *itty committee, WERK IT!! I encourage you all to be healthy, eat right and be active but in the meanwhile while you continue to carry around those thunda thighs...BE FIERCE!! Folk gonna talk about you anyways, so you might as well love yourself anyhow!! *drops mic and switches off stage*

I spend so much time in this store, its crazy!! I just bought a vintage Chanel scarf (that smelled like moth balls LOL!) for .99 pennies....whoever is pricing this stuff doesn't have a clue of the value of these pieces. Bless their heart. Their loss is my gain!! What can I say, the stuff is donated?? LOL! *shoulder shrug* Sorry.. Happy Thrifting!!
