ARE YOU HOLDING YOURSELF TO FALSE STANDARDS? As a person who loves to read Vogue and Cosmo I recently have come across alot of women who desire to have Beyonce Body or J. Lo figure. Women and Some Men look in these magazines and desire a goal that even artist themselves aren't living up to. This Is where self love and self hate go hand in hand. You have to love yourself for who you are NOW if you eve want to love who you have the potential to be. I began surfing the web to find some of these before and after pics or airbrushed stars and the images scared the crap out of me.
SINGER/ AMERICAN IDOL JUDGE: MARIAH CAREY
This picture of a Kardashian sister upsets me the most because so many everyday women could relate to a picture of her still bloated from birth. Instead she is photo shopped to look slim and trim and it's a lie.
So in a world of images and perception do you think celebs should stop the foolery? or do you think they need to continue with the crazy photo shop? chime in
In a World of Fashion I would love for everyone to cater to plus size women but they don't. So when you find a brand that does hold on and hold on tight! I discovered House of Chapplle after being referred to them by a spokesperson and hearing great talks of their brand. I was a bit hesitant because everyone that says PLUS isn't always PLUS. I loved the fact that they showcased regular sized models along side a plus size diva. I see House Of Chapplle isn't afraid to step out on whim for us curvy ladies. I fell In love with their chain link dress and the price was awesome on sale for $30! when purchasing your order in the INFO box let them know afatgirlblues sent you!
I paired my outfit with a pair of pink peep toe shoes and pink clutch both items were $25 dollars a piece!

Okay everyone Knows I loveeeeeeee to shop but some wonder how I do it. Now I love a new bag just like the next girl but It doesn't come over night. I will give you tips to save money in other fields and keep a few hot dollars for a rainy day. As the economy picks up we as women must adjust our spending which means no more $800 dollars for sassy mitchell.
TIP 1:Get your hair cut at a beauty school or training salon. Many who've tried it have been pleasantly surprised with the results, and happier with lower prices
( **If you are local try dorsey, lindsey hopkins or robert morgan)
TIP 2: Barter with a friend who can style hair.
(**owning a boutique I have bartered with my nail tech and hair dresser for clothing items it's no money out of your pocket and you get to look fab!)
TIP 1: Shop at consignment stores you can save big on designer items
TIP 2: SALE your clothing that you have out lived or know that you aren't going to wear again. It will give you money to play with without having to spend your own money.
TIP 3: Organize a "Can I Wear it Week" with good friends. Wear only things you haven't worn for 6 months or more. Ask your friends to decide whether each outfit is a keeper or one to retire. You'll find many things you think are unflattering or unstylish are actually fine
TIP 1:If you can, store some food at work, like snacks, frozen entrees and canned soup. Leave them at the office so you're not tempted to spend when you're hungry.
TIP 2:If you forget lunch, go to the supermarket instead of a restaurant or cafe (I do this all the time you'd be suprised all the goodies you can get!)
welp I'm going to be a auntie It's been a long time coming but my big sister is pregnant with a beautiful girl. I was super excited for the baby shower and the games that were sure to follow. It's fun stealing pins and eating baby food don't ask me why. I wanted to ensure I was comfy and warm it was a bit chilly.
I'm not really a movie watcher honestly I've been addicted to cross word puzzles, ruzzle and youtube. On a family night I decided the browse Netflix and see what I can find that worth me not falling asleep in the middle of the movie and making promises to finish it and never do. I was surpised when I came across AMERICAN VIOLET.
Set in the midst of the 2000 presidential election, American Violet tells the story of Dee Roberts (Nicole Beharie), a 24 year-old African-American single mother of four, living in the town of Melody (based after Hearne, Texas where the real incident took place). One day, while Dee is working a shift at the local diner, the powerful local district attorney (Michael O'Keefe) leads a drug bust, sweeping Dee’s housing project. Police drag Dee from work in handcuffs, dumping her in the women’s county prison. Indicted based on the uncorroborated word of a single and dubious police informant facing his own drug charges, Dee soon discovers she has been charged as a drug dealer.
Even though Dee has no prior drug record and no drugs were found on her in the raid or any subsequent searches, she is offered a hellish choice: plead guilty and go home as a convicted felon or remain in prison and fight the charges thus, jeopardizing her custody and risking a long prison sentence. Despite the urgings of her mother (Alfre Woodard), and with her freedom and the custody of her children at stake, she chooses to fight the district attorney. Dee works with an ACLU attorney (Tim Blake Nelson) and a former local narcotics officer (Will Patton) to take on the Texas justice system.
