Ode to Madonna featuring PINKCLUBWEAR

Hi Dolls ,

So I am a total 80’s baby and a huge Madonna fan. I have several times in my life made my costumes for Halloween to be Madonna. Of course these always had to be hand made because I could never find anything to fit my body. I have seen a couple of dolls wearing these really fun party dresses and they were all sharing that they came from www.Pinkclubwear.com . So of course I had to run and see what they had going on. They have such a range of gowns, and jumpsuits, and rompers , and tops but when I came across this dress I just knew I had to have it. My fear from ordering from online companies is always is it going to fit. I always recommend reading their sizing chart and ladies it is always good to know your measurements even if your slightly off , you should have some kind of idea. So as I was scrolling through a bunch of beautiful pieces this one just caught my eye. I was thinking there is no way I can pull this off especially because I am very self conscience about my legs and I could see it was on the shorter side. Then I decided how dare I let that bother me, I said I am going to get this dress and rock the heck out of it. It was such a modern day looking 80’s Madonna dress I knew it had to be mine. When I  was a little girl my sister, my cousin, and I used to dress up and we used to put on the Madonna’s Blonde Ambition Tour and of course I was Madonna and we would sing and dance. Now I could be my very own modern day Madonna in this dress.

When I received  my dress it was packaged perfectly and the sizing was spot on. I went a size up because of the fact that I have a larger booty and I didn’t want it to be too short back there . The fit was great as well as the quality. I wish I had discovered this company during my birthday. They are definitely the place for a perfect party dress. I felt like a little princess in the dress. The prices are reasonable as well .I hope you Dolls can see how beautiful this dress made me feel. YAYYYYY MADONNA (haha).

Pineapple Madness

Hi Dolls,

So I am person who doesn’t just limit my shopping to plus size stores. You would be surprised what you can fit in a regular sized store if you just give yourself some extra time to go in that fitting room. So I am completely obsessed with H&M because they are inexpensive they always have a sale and they have tons to choose from. I will let it be known I can not fit H&M jeans straight out the store unless they are from their plus size collection. I do fit their joggers and linen pants but once again it is about trying on and seeing what works for my shape. I am bottom heavy so the pants are a harder buy and their skirts tend to be quite short and being a Latina of course I was blessed with a bigger booty so not every skirt works because when I walk things rise and I am all about classy not trashy. What I can get away with the most are their tops.  I don’t need everyone seeing the goods for free. SOOOOO point is I went into H&M and saw this dress and it came in multiple prints but Pineapples were pretty big this year in trends so I took this print tried it on in a XL and the fit was great and it was actually long enough to cover the “Dunk” (Booty). Here is the best part the dress was originally $12.95 and I got it on sale for $9.95. Its such an easy dress perfect for a dinner date or a BBQ or drinks out with the girls. What is even better is that I know come fall time I can throw on some tights and knee boots and a blazer and have a total different look. So Dolls sometimes its ok to step out your comfort zone and try some things on that you may not think will fit and try and work around it . When you get to know your body and your shape it starts to become easier on figuring out what works for you. Hope you Dolls found this helpful ….till next time dolls …….

Words Do Hurt Especially To This Girl! (Brand Sensitivity)

Hi Dolls,

So today I was at the pool with my mommy friend and we are just there enjoying our day watching our kids and having girl talk. My Girlfriend is 46 and I am 30 (age is just a number to me ) and we were there talking beauty products and looking through magazines and I just want to add she is a smaller woman. As we are looking through a Kohls beauty magazine we came across this product by Bliss  which I called “Fatgirl Six pack” and the description reads : Helps sculpt abs for a flaunt-worthy core and bikini worthy body. I honestly couldn’t believe what I was seeing and reading. I then pointed it out to my friend and she was shocked. We both couldn’t believe that this was actually the name of the product and here was the questions that arose from viewing this. So is this suppose to magically give a Fat Girl abs?? Or is this product suppose to give you Fat Girl Abs?? Listen I have been bigger than the “Norm” my whole life. My skin has been made over time thick because I have been called every name in the book and I have gotten every dirty stare that can be possible but what about the girl who recently gained weight going through puberty? What about the woman who just gained a lot of weight from her first pregnancy and doesn’t know how to deal with the transformation? What about the little 9 year old who is super active,loves fruits, and salads but is still chubby (my daughter) ? What message is this sending to them ? How much harm can one word do ? Let me tell you it can do a lot. I sat there and couldn’t help think about the girl who was the biggest girl in high school, the girl who always got told she had such a pretty face, the girl who at times thought about running away, the girl who sometimes wished she was never born, and the girl who just sat and ate the whole bag of chips because she was already “FAT” so what did it even matter? I thought about me and the girl I was and the girl who will never leave me and I thought about me at 16 years old walking into a department store and seeing this product and the name and thinking I wonder how I would have felt at that age.

So I went on Kohls instagram to see if they advertised this product on there also and it was. So I started reading comments and of course there were woman saying this is wrong to call a product this , and there were some saying well if it was called skinny I bet there wouldn’t be a problem. Let me tell you why it wouldn’t be a problem: it is because SKINNY does not have a negative connotation that goes along with it. If your skinny your healthy and beautiful and if your Fat your considered unhealthy, sloppy, and you don’t care about yourself so yes there is a difference. I feel that companies really need to think harder into what they are putting out there to the public because there might be that one girl out there who sees a product like this , and this girl may be already close to the edge and seeing this can push her over. I am hoping that woman start to think twice about supporting companies that aren’t sensitive to weight, race, gender, and religion. Enough is Enough we live in a world where we know what is acceptable and what is not, it is what we do with this knowledge that is important.

I love you Dolls till next time ……

Celebrating My Size

Hi Dolls, So I have been dying to do an all swimsuit shoot. I decided I wanted to do this because I am finally at a point in my life where I am proud of my body. I know that I still have a ways to go but I am finally at that place where I have accepted what I have and I try to live everyday and celebrate my accomplishments. I wanted to do swimsuits because I think that it is probably most peoples biggest fear to put on. I remember in high school wearing huge white tshirts to cover up my body on top of my swimsuit. I never ever felt pretty in a swimsuit but now all of that has gone out the window. I allowed for all my imperfections to show in these photos because I want all you dolls to see I am no different than all of you.   image

Still on that road to healthy….

Hi Dolls ,

So I felt that a couple months ago I hit a little bit of a road block on my weight loss and I was feeling so defeated . I was doing so much between work, school, being a mom to twins and still trying to have a social life that I was for sure not giving myself time to work out as much . (Like I told before I did have weight loss surgery but its just a tool not a solution at all its what you do with that tool that matters I still struggle everyday )I realized that just walking for an hour , or jumping rope and blasting music to keep me motivated is what I needed. The last couple of months I have been working out more than I have my whole life. What’s crazy is that I don’t let it consume my time and I’m still seeing results. I am not a person who loves to workout and that’s just reality . I don’t know if I will ever be that gym junkie but I do know that I want to live a long life for me and my babies. So even if I have to force myself to just walk for a bit or climb the stairs in my apartment building over and over for 30 min I’m going to do it. I can’t tell you the difference on my body with climbing stairs and being able to keep up with my kids even more. Dolls I promise I’m no different than all of you . If I can do it you can to . I hope you dolls maybe find some inspiration and take on walking 30 min a day ….I can tell its the hardest habit to form but I can promise you will start to feel a difference . Its not about losing the weight its about feeling good and not sluggish, its about feeling like you can keep up with the rest of the world , and most importantly it’s about you knowing that your worth putting some time aside to find a better you…. Love you dolls

I woke up this morning with no intentions on writing this post but my motivation to keep going made me feel like it was necessary to let you guys know that I am exactly like you and I believe in all of you and I know we can all build a better us a little at a time. 💋💋💋
