Plus Size Holiday Party Looks

Last year I attended my first “adult” holiday party. The ones that are in TV and movies with flowing, open bar, a lovely dinner, with music and dancing. And I, lover of sequins and doing the most, was underdressed. I know, how could this happen? I literally had multiple fur and sequins options just hanging…

Ballin’ (and Bloggin’) on a Budget

I’m relatively new to the blogophere, but I am quickly seeing how trying to run a fashion or lifestyle blog, especially before you get brands sponsoring you, can completely blow your budget. I may be a Baby Blogger, but I am a fully minted Adult(TM) and as I’ve begun to navigate the fashion instagram space,…

It’s decorative [and edible] gourd season, MFs

My favorite lasagna doesn’t even have pasta noodles

I have a confession to make: I am a pasta snob. Save for mac and cheese (scratch made, obviously), I refuse to use dried pasta. There was a pasta crank on my Amazon deals of the day once, I impulsively bought it, made an easy pasta recipe and was completely blown away. No dried pasta could…

This post contains links that allow me to earn a commission on the items I recommend. Y’all I love animal prints. At one point in my life, I thought they were a bit gauche, but I think the quality of prints has increased and honestly, I’ve evolved into the extra bitch I am today. I’ve…

Eloquii, will you be my Valentine

The month of December truly is my favorite month for shopping. Everything is sequins, glitter, or metallic and it’s totally acceptable to wear said items because you’re being festive. I also love when these pieces go on after-Christmas clearance. “But Chelsea,” you might ask, “why would I buy all this festive red stuff and metallic…

Will you accept this rose?

Today, Monday the 7th of January, 2019, is a National Holiday. It’s the Bachelor Premier on ABC. Normally I like to watch with a big glass of rosé, but I was at the grocery (liquor) store the other day and stumbled across my new favorite thing: rosé tequila. George Strait’s new Codigo tequila is really…
