Stock Up On Swimwear

I hope everyone is sticking to their New Year Resolutions of shedding the pounds to be swimsuit ready for the summer. Just because you’re plus size doesn’t mean you don’t want to look cute when you go to the pool and beach. I plan on spending my 25th birthday in Miami, so I've been on the hunt for sexy swimsuits. I stumbled across this website UltimateOutlet.com and was amazed at their sale, so of course I had to share with you ladies. I'm all about looking like a million dollars on a budget. The fall/winter season is the best to stock up on swimsuits because you can always score fabulous savings. These sexy one-pieces are all under $30. Remember that ruching is a plus size girl's best friend when buying swimwear. Hope you all add one of these to your closet. My favorite is the eggplant color with the intricate embellishment on the straps.


1. One-Piece Bejeweled Surplice Maillot Control Swimsuit by Shape $29 (Sizes 16W-24W)
2. One-Piece Bejeweled Surplice Maillot Control Swimsuit by Shape $29 (Sizes 12 & 14)
3. Botanical-Print One-Piece Halter Swimsuit $10 (Size 12)
4. Braided-Trim One-Piece Swimsuit by Spiegel $19 (Size 18W)

Dreamzz Hair Collection Review: Part 1

I've partnered with Dreamzz Hair Co. to review their virgin Brazilian hair. This is an Atlanta based company that specializes in various types of virgin hair - Brazilian, Peruvian, Mongolian, Eurasian, and European Blonde. They even sell clip-in extensions for the fashionista who doesn't want to commit to a sew-in or simply wants temporary length. I received the hair on Tuesday and each bundle was wrapped in cellophane with pretty white bows. The lengths were written on each bow, which made it super easy to distinguish. I received four bundles of virgin Brazilian wavy in 18", 22", 24", and 28". The staggered lengths are perfect for layering and allows your stylist to do minimal cutting. The hair was custom colored jet black to match my natural tresses. I loved the medium sheen (too much shine looks too fake), soft texture, and odorless smell (it smelled like freshly washed hair). I ran my fingers through the hair a few times to test the tangliness and shedding - it passed the test. I've been weaveless for over a month now to allow my natural hair to rest, but I'm ready for my Kim K. waves. I'm waiting to get my install around the second or third week of February. Check back for my second part of this review and also a YouTube that I'll post.

Dreamzz Hair Co. is having a special two and three bundle deal on Brazilian, Peruvian, Brazilian Wavy, and Eurasian hair. This is definitely a deal that you don't want to miss. Use promo code FATSHIONISTA7 to recieve 20% off your order. This excludes the bundle sale.

Bye Bye 2012, Hello 2013!

Happy New Year! I hope you lovely ladies enjoyed your New Years Eve and partied the night away. I brought the New Year in with style, laughter, and love. I celebrated with my gal pals in Charlotte at three different venues - Caviar, Founders Hall, and Label. I was anti-sparkle this year and opted for a sleek, black dress from ASOS Curve. The cold shoulder accent gave the dress a subtle sexiness. I partnered the dress with blue suede peeptoes and bold fringe earrings. Keeping with the sleek theme, I rocked a braided bun and kept my makeup simple - dark eyes and nude lips. I am so excited to see what this year holds. I wish health, wealth, love, fashion, and happiness to all of my readers.
