Hello beauties! For my first post I really wanted to sit back and just tell everyone my inspiration for this blog.   I am a stay at home mom and wife to a Marine. I have always been bigger than my friends and had a hard time shopping in stores. I've had eating issues and always hated myself head to toe. On top of it I of course struggled (and still struggle) with acne when none of my friends did.  There are so many expectations of how to look in this world, it can be hard sometimes.
     My heaviest was 165 and on a 5ft frame that adds up. Looking back now I'd kill to be there again. Getting pregnant I wasn't the best about what I ate and also ended up with severe pre-eclampsia. So needless to say I gained a looooot of weight. Now I float between 185 and 189. I shop at a plus size store and can't find normal clothes to fit. But it's ok, I love Torrid! Ladies if you are sorta new to being in the plus size club I would definitely check them out. I know I was at a loss when I couldn't really wear maternity clothes anymore but couldn't find anything to fit me. Luckily as embarrassed as I was back then to walk into that store I am so glad I did. The ladies (at least in my experience) are all plus sized and super nice and helpful. They make you feel normal while shopping. Even when I was 20lbs lighter I felt ashamed getting the bigger size.Shopping in general was a nightmare and I never bought anything after trying on 2 pieces of clothing I'd get so mad and ashamed I would just start crying.
    I've had some dark times with my body issues, just as I'm sure most have. So even if you're not plus size please look around.  My main goal is to just help everyone except themselves and feel comfortable. Life is too short to be miserable because you're too thin or too big, not the right skin color or body shape.  Who cares really? If you are a good person that is what people are attracted to. Never should anyone feel guilty or bad if they eat a burger or a cookie. Enjoy life where you can. There are good limits but when it's extreme, that is what I want to stop. I am learning to change to a more healthy lifestyle for me but mostly my daughter. I refuse to go crazy about it though and I will enjoy that bowl of ice cream when it's a rough day. My family loves me, I have great friends, and if they can accept and love me, why shouldn't I?

Now for the fun stuff, I will have a little bit of everything on this page eventually to quick meal plans for the hectic life, makeup reviews, nail of the week possibly, and of course pinterest adventures ;) Hope to have you along for the ride!
