Winner, Winner

Hey Curvy Ladies! I asked and you answered! After I recapped my looks from The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo on  Instagram, you guys asked me numerous questions about this cropped jumpsuit from Eloquii! I must admit it does look amazing on me * blushes*...and can you believe I almost didn't chose it. Everything about this jumpsuit is perfect from the print, the shape, the fit and the way it flows. The polka dotted beauty is definitely a WINNER!!!!

Hey ladies! The time has arrived...Simply Curvy is ready to get fit! I know it has taken me forever to actually start the journey but I've finally reached my scale tipping point and I know some lifestyle changes have to be made. Also I'm prepared mentally, physically, spiritually, and financially to start working towards the health/ weight loss goal I have.

Peace of Mind

The last few weeks have been trying time for a large majority of us. From police killings, no convictions in the #FreddieGary trials, Black Lives Matter protest, Donald Trump and the RNC, Hillary Clinton and the DNC, to an infinite list that can go on and one...the negative energy in the universe is starting to take a toll on our inner peace. I truly believe in the powers of positive energy, because of this I've decided to give you ladies 5 tips on finding a Peace of Mind:

1. Realize You Have Nothing to Prove
Many of us live as if we have something to prove to someone or to a situation that happened in the past. Often times this hinders us from reaching our full potential, because we still aren't living for ourselves. Always do things that truly makes YOUR SOUL happy.

2. Refocus Your Energy
Stop giving your energy to negative situations, thoughts, and feelings. In life, sh*t happens and that's okay. We grow from the life's find the beautiful in the struggle. (yes, I stole that from J. Cole)

3. Meditate
Taking the time to slow down and quiet your mind creates a healthy internal environment. Here are some tips on Meditation for Beginners from Jeanne of Finesse Curves.

4. Live in the Present Moment
Let go of the past & stop overthinking the future. The past is gone and the future will never turn out the way you're over analyzing it all you're really doing is plaguing your mind with negative energy. Take the time to feel and appreciate the world around you.

5. Self Love
The more we love our personal beings, the easier it is to find and maintain inner peace. Self love and care are the basics of finding inner peace. Peace starts with YOU!

I don't think these tips will solve all of the worlds problems, but in the words of the late, great Tupac  "I'm not saying I'm gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world."

Let's Go Shopping w. GROUPON

Hi Ladies! Want to know a secret about me?!?!?*you have to promise you won't tell....okay* I'm obsessed with extreme couponing! I haven't had the courage to actually go into the grocery and put my new skills to use though, I've just been having the fun in my head lol. It started out with me faithfully watching the show on TLC, since then I've been searching the web for couponing tips, couponing blogs, couponing apps and my research still isn't done!

One of my newly found couponing loves is Groupon Coupons! YES....the same Groupon that saves you tons of money on concerts, local events, and all-inclusive getaways now offers verified discounts and coupons to many of my favorite retail stores! Some of the retailers include Sephora, Macy's, Talbots, Khol's, and HSN..just to name a few. I know you'll find great coupons with this app. And if apps aren't your thing, you can find the deals online here!And did I mention it's FREE!!!!! Hundreds of coupons at your fingertips for the cost of free.99! I'm beating myself up for not using Groupon Coupons sooner.
