On Tuesday evening I had to go into Toronto for a routine MRI appointment for my MS. I HATE THAT MACHINE!!!!! I know hate is a strong word but it’s the plain and honest truth. I hate laying flat on my back (makes me dizzy), I hate having my head strapped down and not being able to move for 25 minutes. I hate that it’s warm and confining. I hate that the noise is so loud you feel like you’re being shot by machine guns.
So needless to say I was not looking forward to Tuesday evening! My husband and I arrived early for the appointment and being the super, wonderful guy that he is, he sped to the Eatons’ Center, straight to the Torrid store for a little shopping trip to ease my pain, lol! Totally made the hideous trip worth it!. So in today’s post I’ve included a few pictures of what I purchased and some options on how to style them. Right now Torrid is BOGO 1/2 off and you earn Haute Cash for some future good deal shopping! Haute Cash is coupons for $25 off every $50 you spend.
Picture #1 – I paired this bright pink baseball t with distressed jeans (Forever 21), a black statement necklace (Aldo Accessories) and black hoops (Suzy Shier). The top was 41.50 but got it for 20.75 with BOGO 1/2 off, the item # is 10382733 and it’s a size 1.
Picture #2 – I first paired this pastel pink t with the same distressed jeans, a chunky floral necklace (Suzy Shier) and gold hoops (Torrid). The top was 44.50, item # is 10412042 and it’s a size 1.
Picture #2 – Same pink top and jeans but I changed out the necklace for a leopard print infinity scarf with hints of pink in it (Reitmans) and changed the gold hoops for black rhinestone hoops (Addition Elle).
Picture #3 – The jewellery I bought at Torrid; gold hoops, reg. 17.50, got them 1/2 price with BOGO 1/2 off, item # 10192980 and the Barbie lipstick long chain necklace for $27.50, item # 1040801.
Look these items up on the Torrid website; my pictures don’t do them justice especially the pink one.
Enjoy the pics (as amateur as they are). Let me know if you like the way I styled them. How would you wear these pieces?
Until next time, Be pretty, Plus and Proud!
Smile! It’s the beginning of a fabulous new day and you are BEAUTIFUL!
I’ve been looking at Pinterest for some time now and have been saving up some inspiring body positive quotes. Today I’m sharing with you some of my favorites just to remind all you plus size beauties how truly remarkable and special you are, right now, in this moment, without changing a thing!
Read and enjoy and as always, now and forever, Be Pretty, Plus and Proud!
- Looking into a mirror is not a reminder to bash your wonderful body!
- Your body is not wrong, society is!
- Confidence will make you happier than any diet ever will (so embrace your body!)
- I do not need anyone else’s permission to feel glorious!
- Body confidence does not come from trying to achieve the perfect body, it comes from embracing the one you’ve already got!
- Life is way to short to spend another day at war with yourself!
- Confidence is Beautiful, no matter your size, no matter your weight. Be confident in who you are and you’ll be BEAUTIFUL!
Do you have any favorite body positive quotes you’d like to share? Did you add to your list of body positive affirmations we started in yesterday’s post?
Far too often we as plus size women describe ourselves so negatively!
Today my beauties that’s going to change!
I suggest you type out or copy the text below and every day look at it and pick a word to describe yourself for that day. Add other positive words of your choosing to help your list of positivity grow! Tape your lists to bathroom mirrors, bedroom mirrors, the fridge, any place you look at often so you are always reminded of the wonderful things you are!
So which one are you today?
Extraordinary, Strong, Wise, Confident, Valuable, Talented, Blessed, Accepted, Fearless, At Peace, Healthy, Young, Determined, Smart, Beautiful, Graceful, Am Leader, Successful, Head and Not Tail, Healer, Respectful, Light, Loved, Humble, Victorious, Optimist, Patient, Kind Loving…..
What would you add to the list? (Remember only positive thoughts!)
P.S. My sweater choice from Forever 21 was the pink one. Did you guess right?
Following yesterday’s blog post I have another question for you:
Do you need to change?
I say no, not unless YOU want to. Certainly not because someone else, who knows nothing about your private struggles, says you should. Not even those closest to you have the right to ask or tell you to change. No one else knows what’s inside your head or heart.
YOU can choose to make changes if you want to, or if you feel you need to. You can also choose to simply accept, embrace and love who you are in this moment.
Personally, I’m choosing to embrace who I am. Not to say I won’t take care of myself, but I refuse to be chained to a diet program. I refuse to count calories, weigh and measure my food or stress about how much activity I can fit into my day. If I feel like eating an apple I will, but if I feel like eating an ice cream I’ll eat that too and enjoy every single lick; no guilt! If I have some extra energy I’ll do some yoga but If I’m tired, I give myself permission to rest; again no guilt!
So after reading this post I hope it helps you choose what is best for you, and always remember whatever you choose you are always Pretty, Plus and Proud!
What are your thoughts on changing?
