Plus Size Office Casual #WIWW

plus size women Plus size Office Causal no that I am heading back to work I have been in training for several week the office attire is business causal.  So I have been using the pieces already in my closet to create my looks.  This Shirt dress i found at a local thrift store.  I paired it with an existing faux snake skin belt.

The leggings are JJill and are the best leggings ever because they don’t loose their shape and feel great.  I would recommend them as a splurge at $39 because I know you can find basic leggings for less expensive but there are thick enough an feel great!

My shoes are Areosoles and the bag is my Massi bag plus_size_office_casual_013_001-2

Not your Moms Calgon Review and #Giveaway

calgon Calgon Review Recently I was reintroduced to Calgon and I have to say it really blew me away.  I really really enjoyed learning about it. Also I am a huge fan and using the product daily.  I was at Getting Gorgeous and Calgon was one of the sponsors of the event.

The 1st thing that I really loved was the Hawaiian Ginger Body Mist,  I am not a perfume girl.. usually deodorant and go type of lady.  I received a small sample of the Calgon Hawaiian Body mist  and have been caring it with me. Spraying it before I leave the house and using it in the summer heat.   LOVE LOVE it.

Calgon Epsom Slat and Bubble Bath  My husband who suffers from really bad psoriasis has been using the Calgon Hawaiian Epsom Salts in combo with the bubble bath,  when he soaks and I have actually noticed his skin feels so much better.   He really love the scent and he is person soaking.  Because of  his 100% psoriasis coverage  he soaks in a tub every other day for about 3 hours to calm his skin and reduce his itching. For him the combo of the 2 really helps to release the skin sells.   He is really impressed. calgon

Ask I am witting this I  is saying how much he also like the Calgon body cream.  Yes he was my main product tester on this review. He know lotions and creams.  He said the cream is excellent because it does not dry out his skin and really thick.  The scent is light he likes it.  I am super sensitive to the smells creams he uses and I have been know to tell him to get rid of many of them,  but the Calgon Hawaiian Ginger is a keeper.

Plus Size Office Casual #WWIW

plus size blogger

Plus size Office Casual – So I recently started training for new job. So I have to dress business casual for the days in the office. I Found this fabric is my stash and decide to make a skirt. A simple skirt based on a skirt I love in my wardrobe.


I paired the skirt with a Red cardigan which is great at the office if the air conditioning is cool and a tank under it. So I can remove the cardi when I get in the hot car for the drive home. I paired the outfit with my favorite red wedges.
I love the color and brights it make me think summer.

I started the day with my hair down,  then I found out that V05 was doing a hair so I got an up do.   The used V05 Salon Selective Perfect Hold Hairspray which lasted all day and survived the heat when I went to the pool.

BOD-Man which is a fragrance brand for Body Sprays.  I have to say I really like this product is an affordable body spray for my teen and it also comes in pump spray instead of an aresole can so I feel like it will limit over spaying.  Cant wait to learn more and have my son try the spray.

30 Great Plus Size Swim Cover Ups

plus size coverups

Plus Size Swimsuit Coverup are great for beach and then transition into after the beach.  When I am down at the pool during the summer I really want to have a coverup when I am walking to and from on the street. I love the idea of a coverup that is chic and makes me looked more polished then just wearing a towel. Being more Fashionable, less slopping looking than a towel since you know being in a bathing suit can make you self-conscious a great coverup can boost confidence.
