Hi Dolls ,
So today I just want to talk to you about feeling sexy in the skin your in. It has taken me a long time to actually be OK with every dimple and stretch mark on my body, but I think I have finally come to that place. I still believe that there is a healthier more fit me that I am still hoping to achieve one day, but what I can tell you is that I am finally ok with who I am. As a plus size woman I know that as a whole we are not meant to believe we are Sexy. Sexy to me is a state of mind not a look. I am just here to tell all woman just love yourself no matter what society says, or that man who you met at a bar , or even what some of your loved ones may say. Feeling Sexy for yourself will even help you improve on your sex life.
The reason why I say this is because when it comes down to it sex is awkward period. Tell me I am not right? Having sex with someone you have been with for years or someone you just met can truly just be an awkward experience. As a plus size person its super awkward just trying to find a position to be comfortable in that makes you feel that you are equally doing the work. You laugh but you know its true. Your thinking the whole time I hope I don’t crush this person or hurt them, break one of their ribs or what ever the scenario that is running through your head at that time. All of these thoughts during sex will just make you look and feel super unsexy. Dolls let me tell you if you walk into that room like a BOSS looking sexy and feeling sexy the rest will just happen naturally. Your partner will be so turned on by your confidence let me tell you, that night you will be seeing fireworks. Dolls just believe in yourself and love yourself. BE SEXY and BE YOU above all. I Am Team Curvy and I am proud to be. Own your curves I know I do.
So I don’t know about you but I am a mega frugalista. First off I am a single mom of twins if you didn’t already know that so means Dana can blow her money on clothes like I would like. I rather work with what I have and add pieces to my wardrobe that can bring me into the new fashion season. So I am a big time bargain shopper. I don’t really believe in paying full price for things, there is usually a coupon or some kind of sale going on you just need to know how to work around them. I passed by Charlotte Russe and they were having a sale on Booties all for $20 so come on how could I not go in. So I found a great pair of black booties and then I saw 3 sale racks so of course I had to run over and check them out. I was able to find this army green vest for $15 originally $32.99. To me that is a slam dunk especially if I can think of wearing 1 item in many ways . So all I did was pair it with an old pair of Jeans and an old turtleneck for a new 2015 Fall Look.
So I had to share this with you all because I am OBSESSED with Tutu’s. Our Gal Loey Lane and Society + are bringing us the ultimate Tutus helping us feel like our very own #Carrybradshaws. @LoeyBug premiered this collection in London during UKPSFW. I just want to share my favorite pieces from this collection . Dolls I would grab these before they sell out these are the ultimate holiday outfits or even Halloween Pieces for Costumes.

So I am back from London and I miss it terribly already. This trip was a trip of a lifetime. I got to see beautiful architecture, eat different types of food, and meet amazing people. I was able to fund this trip fully through Donations and I want to thank everyone who contributed from the bottom of my heart I appreciate you being so generous and believing in me. While in London I barely even slept because I wanted to take every minute in and not miss a thing. A huge thank you to The Fount Group for being the best host ever and making me feel so at home. So arrived late at night so my first day there wasn’t enough time for exploration so I knew the next day I wanted to be up bright and early and get the most out of that day.
We started our day out with breakfast at the cutest place called the breakfast club. A very eclectic looking place playing awesome music and how great to walk in and see a Lionel Richie Album Cover.
after breakfast we headed to a #Tesco which is a London version of a corner store in New York but upgraded. Learning how to read pounds and pence was crucial to me especially you guys know I love a good sale. So I made sure I was comparing prices and making sure I stood within budget. So I grabbed some waters and eggs and other little items to get me through my trip.
After that we headed out to meet some wonderful people who surprised us and gave us a tour of TOM FORD studios in #London. What a huge treat this was because seriously little old me checking out the stuff that was premiering during Fashion Week in the United States was pretty mind blowing. We headed to #PiccadillyCircus which is almost like our Times Square shopping area. Here we got to go to Top Shop and get to get some free makeup done and of course just play around with different fashions.
Next Day was the Start of UKPSFW and it is what they call press day. Press Day is where all the collections are on display for all Media sources. I was chosen to model for Eleven 60 which was an absolute blast and dream come true. This was little old me Dana Martinez modeling amongst the big dogs. I had the full works done on me makeup, hair, nails. I was straight out living my dream and almost couldn’t believe it was real.
I was able to model the gorgeous J Trench.
Being able to be on stage and Model Next to some of the most gorgeous models in the world was surreal. I know it may be hard to wrap your heads around but I am just little old Dana. I am a mom of twins from #Yonkers NY in London modeling for #KierraSheard talk about mind blown. I know that hard work can pay off but its hard to believe that a goal I never felt was attainable was happening. Dolls it was real and I want to thank all of you for always supporting me and showing me love. Come back for part 2 tomorrow.
So as you know I am in this Mega Fall Wardrobe kick. I am the kind of girl that likes to get staple pieces that will work with more than one outfit, so this way you can get a bang for your buck. Lets face it Plus Size Clothing cost more because of the fact that there is more yardage being used to produce the garment. So being able to make an clothing item work for you in more than one way is pretty important. Well I am bringing you 2 different looks using this Gorge Trench for the Fabulous #Jessicakane . This Back 2 Basics Trench Cardigan is $58.99 and apart of Jessica’s Collection. Ladies if your looking for a hit in the office, at school, or just a Fabulous Date night outfit this Trench will for sure make a mark.
