My Fall Bucket List

I’m making a list and checking it twice.  Not for Christmas, but for Fall.  I’m making a to-do list of things to enjoy and do this upcoming season.

Over the years I’ve grown to love Fall.  I love the color and richness of the Season.  The earth tone colors tend to warm my heart and it makes me feel all cozy inside.

I also love Fall because it’s one of those Season where you get a break from the blazing Summer while it gives you chance to prepare and brace for the cold and hectic Winter.  It’s not too hot and not too cold. Continue reading

Have The Whole Damn Cake!

Has anyone ever told you that you deserve the absolute best?

Has anyone ever told you that you are worth [it]?

If you answered NO to any of those two questions, I’m here to let you know that you are worthy of everything and you deserve the best and should always want the best for you.

I’m here to let you know that the world is yours for the taking!  Whatever you want you can achieve it AND you are worthy of it!

If you’ve ever felt this way about anything, trust me, I get it and I understand.  A lot of times we don’t feel as if we are worthy of very much.  We have a lot of self-shame and we tend to settle for the bare minimum. Continue reading

How To Write The Perfect Wedding Toast

Believe it or not, fall is one the busiest seasons to get married.  You may ask how do I know this. Well, you could Google it, and of course Google will tell you the same thing, but remember I work at a Bridal Store, so I know firsthand that this is true.  Many engagements happen during the Holiday season (Nov-Jan). For those couples who plan to get married rather quick, a late summer or early fall wedding is ideal.  This gives them roughly 8-10 months to plan a wedding and that’s doable.  Then you have a lot of couples who want to get married in cooler temperatures (not too hot and not too cold) especially if their nuptials will take place outside.  Plus, there is something about fall colors that everyone just loves.  This takes me back to my original point that fall is one of the busiest season to get married!

Now, for the rest of us, those who are in a wedding this fall or perhaps even attending a wedding in the upcoming seasons, and you’re contemplating on the speech you’re going to give, you’ve come to the right place. Continue reading

Watch out for the Big Girls!

Gone are the days where plus size or curvy girls can only shop at certain stores in the mall because those select stores are the only stores that sell “our” size.  It is a great feeling to finally have some of the barriers around plus size clothing knocked down.  Nowadays, more and more stores are providing curvy girl selections, whether in store (and not in the back of the store) or online.  We just have to get out there to shop and we have to be adventurous.  No one said that just because you’re a certain size that you can only wear sweatsuits or long granny dresses.  No, No, No!
