The Shopping Diaries: Discrimination?

I am a true lover of shopping. Not just spending money, although that’s fun too. But, I am completely happy “just looking” in a mall filled to the brim with fashion, beauty products, shoes, and accessories. Even without buying a thing. I’m not talking about window shopping. I need to actually feel the merchandise and check out its quality. And not just plus size stores either; I make my way into any retail space. Until a few weeks ago.

I was at a Los Angeles area shopping mall and was stopped dead in my tracks …

Unique Evening Bags?

By Posted on 8

After Saturday night’s Snowball event, I realized I don’t have a proper evening bag. With the holidays here, I need something that will be easy to carry, big enough for my cell phone, I.D., money, my compact, and my lip stick. I also want something that is unique. That brings us to this post. I love “unique” items, although I never have the guts to pull anything like it off.

And doesn’t there always seems to be an occasion that requires the purchase of new shoes. Maybe it’s the Two Point OH LA Snowball on Saturday that has me wanting a holiday inspired shoe like the ones below. A fatshionista is never satisfied, especially around the holidays.

Beauty Review: Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow

By Posted on 4

Yet, another beauty confession…I’m not anything close to a make up artist or beauty fanatic. But, I am a chick who does like make up, but doesn’t like to pay the hefty price for department store brands. I’ve purchased them before, but realized how expensive that can get. I’ve been an over-the-counter girl ever since. Lately, I’ve tried steppiing out of my comfort zone when it comes to colors. That’s why I was really excited when Wet N Wild agreed to send me a few of their products for the goodie bags I put together for …
