Black Muted Plaid

This look is truly an errand look with Fall/Winter all over it. I have been dying to rock the plaid trend since it has resurfaced this 2015 Fall sesaon and here was my chance. This was the perfect look for me to make my weekend runs cute yet comfortable! Being a mom on the go, I live for comfort yet cuteness.

Zulily Maxi Skirt

I have missed this soooo much! I am just gonna drop this here like I never left. I am back to blogging because I love what I love, and that is all things beauty and fashion. I have also enjoyed keeping up with my fellow blogger boos in the blogosphere. These ladies have been major inspiration as well as motivation to begin again by making my mark in this industry of plus size domination. A major congrats is in order for Ashley Nell Tipton on winning Project Runway 2015!

CS Beauty Review: Ruby Kisses Matte Lipsticks

If you are a matte lippie lover like me and looking for a budget buy. Please get your hooks in these $2.99 lipsticks from your local beauty supply store or look for them online here. I can truly attest that this is an amazing buy and is  of great quality when in comparison to my MAC lipsticks that I own. I love matte lip colors because they tend not to have a ton of movement on the lips and are quite long lasting if you are not consuming any greasy food products.

CS Beauty Review: Loreal Paris True Match

Finally, I have time to tell you about this new beauty product that I have fallen in love with and its available at your local drug store, Walmart, and Target. Honestly, it is an old product but new to some. This is the Loreal Paris True Match foundation. I have been interested in this foundation for quite sometime now and I must say that it is my new favorite. I have literally tossed out the Cover Girl Queen collection because the coverage here lately did not suite my fancy.

Check out my little JJ, he will be making more appearances than I need him too. 

I tried my best to be spiffy as I could in these pics...I ain't gonna lie, I was tired as all get out! Look at my little man up there, he will give you a run for your money! I love him so much though. My little man is now 16mths or better yet 1 yr. old. Now I see why parents say I remember you as a baby.  Huh...

This was my relaxed look for an outing with the three of us. The weather is bonkers here in Alabama, but I thank heavens I don't have to deal with the snow or ice for now. The temperatures change like the wind. Last year the ice took Birmingham off the map. LOL!  This city was looking like something off of Walking Dead with all the stranded vehicles left everywhere. I am so not hoping for that again because my baby and I were stranded at a church. It was kind of weird at first but the members of that church made you feel right at home. That was one of my great moments from 2014. Thanks for checking in...

Btw...I am in Love with the crochet hair styling these days...

I've Missed You

I know its late, but HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!! 

My new year resolution is to not worry because I did too much of that last year.

This is a well long overdue blog post from your editor and chief of this wonderful blog called CurvySoutherner. I have missed you all so much that it has taken sometime to sit down and write this. To simply put it, LIFE and S&*^ happens! And yes, that happened to me and for that, I needed sometime to gather myself, ideas, relax, become more motivated, interested and goal minded toward more things to progress my blog and other endeavors. I have been active on my other social media sites and if you didn't know, click on over to my Facebook Likepage   and log onto Instagram and see my profile here. I would really appreciate if you stop by show your love or like it. 

Just to briefly bring you up to speed on my hiatus, I'd gotten sick early part of November and as a result, I had to have emergency Gallbladder/Gallstone removal surgery. I was suffering from the gallbladder attacks since Spring 2014. My doctor advised that after carrying my baby for those nine months, it had caused my uterus to press against my gallbladder for that period of time and brought out the arousal of my gallbladder attacks that bothered me from time to time. I must admit, it was my stubbornness that it became excruciating. 

During my two week follow-up with my surgeon, I was told that my gallbladder was full of Gallstones to the point that it could have ruptured. To think, I kept putting the gallbladder attacks off as if, it would eventually get better. Once I returned to work, my coworkers then gave me the depth of my gallbladder issue. If I had continued to procrastinate, it could have ruptured and I could have become septic. Septic is when the body becomes infected with bacteria. When the body becomes septic, that can lead to hospitalization with several rounds of strong antibiotics and/or cause death. When I think about how close I was to something this devastating, I just thank God for allowing me go to work in pain on Monday(11/3), secure and go to a doctors appointment on Tuesday(11/4), have surgery on Wednesday(11/5), and sit here and be able to tell you how blessed I am to tell you about it.  Long story short, I feel much better, but the only adjustment at this point is to learn what to eat until my body gets used to not having that organ anymore. 

The year 2014 was a year of growth for me and my family. My growth has encouraged me to start somethings new and do things I love versus just because. I have been taking complete advantage of that in more ways than you know, and I just thank God that he revealed a new woman in me. My initial focus for this year is organization. I need more organization than you know and in more ways you know! I have been researching ways to get more organized and currently I am looking at the Erin Condren planner and ways to declutter and organize my home. I want that planner so bad but for now, I will just settle for the $7 planner I purchased from my local Target. Lets see how long it last, and plus I will be keeping you in the know about my organization and so forth. Have any of you thought about planner organizing?

I have so much to catch with you all about. I look forward to our future chit chat.

Minor Hues of Blue

Skirt: Thrifted| Tank: Kmart by LYS (old) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe  (old) | Sheer Jacket: F21+ | Necklace: Rainbow

Happy Mothers Day to all my blog readers that are mothers and even those who are mothers to be. Here is a recap of my 1st official Mother's Day look that I wore to church on Sunday. I wanted to wear "Hues of Blue" for some strange reason but I didn't have a blue jacket to wear with my look, better luck next time. Monochromatic appeals to me at this very moment and it will be featured in a future post ;-)
This mother's day thing is taking some getting use to; I forgot to msg/txt friends that recently became mothers just like me and I was taking back by those who wished me a Happy Mother's Day. Believe it or not, reality still has not settled and my baby is about to be a year old. WOW! 
Finally, I introduce you all to my baby Jairus,Jr. aka "JJ", he recently turned 8 months and that year is slowly creeping on in there. My baby is growing too fast!! I want to keep him just like this but I know that is impossible.  Hope you all enjoyed this post....

ELOQUII returns...

The moment I recieved the email notification of this plus line's return I was a bit skeptical because of what their fashion lacked when they first emerged as an opposing face of plus fashion in this massive industry. I was completely doubtful that the new collection would be about anything....Boy was I wrong and man did I eat some words!!! Eloquii is back and much better than ever. They have hit some major points with this new Spring 2014 collection that I can assure you that, from this collection they have some major shoes to fill in the coming seasons. Keep it up Eloquii!!! The site is open and up for the taking, you find these pieces and many more here at Eloquii. Happy shopping and enjoy!!!
