I love going on vacations, but I truly hate packing for them. No matter how much I plan or what I do, I seem to be completely incapable of not throwing everything I own into a suitcase...even if I'm just going on a mini weekend getaway!

It looks like Jessica Alba is back on her acting game. The Honest Company founder recently posted some super cute photos on her Instagram account from the set of her new movie, Dear Eleanor. The new film is set in 1962, so everyone in the cast was dressed in chic, 60s-inspired ensembles--Jessica's being my favorite, of course.

I became a second time mami at the end of January. Already having had one child, I knew what body changes to expect and how I would feel after baby. I also knew during my pregnancy what I should and shouldn't buy--especially when it came to maternity clothes. This time around I invested in three pairs of jeans because I knew that is what I would wear the most. And I did!
If there's one thing I HAVE to own this summer, it's definitely a maxi dress. These easy breezy numbers aren't just comfortable--they keep you cool during those hot, humid days and they're insanely cute too. In fact, now that I think about it, one is definitely not going to cut it. I should probably stock up on five or six.

Two students have solved the poor fit issue that plagues most plus-sized clothing: Brandon Wen and Laura Zwanziger, apparel design sophomores at Cornell University, have a theory about why most plus-sized gear has such a crappy fit.
This is great news. I would love to have all of my clothes either custom made or tailored because I'm just not the "standard" build (whatever that is). I have been thinner and now I am less than thin and I have to say that finding a good fit is even harder when I'm heavier. Why is that? Well according to these two students, the answer is quite simple...
Excuse me while I judge someone else's parenting. I know it's awful, but sometimes I start judging before I can stop myself. Finding out that 31-year-old model Vicky Antonia has spent over $30,000 on designer label clothing for her 8-year-old son made me judge her as a mother maybe just a teeny tiny bit. Vicky Antonia lives with her son Zak in Epping, Essex; they share the home with his Armani, D&G, Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, and Prada clothing and his over 200 pairs of posh footwear.Continue Reading >
Jennifer Lopez was spotted the other day leaving a N.Y.C. hotel wearing a sheer floral blouse paired with fitted cream trousers. What could have technically been a super sophisticated outfit resulted in a serious fashion miss, because the only thing anyone noticed was the pop star's visible nude bra. I'm not going to lie, this didn't exactly come to me as a surprise. After all, J.Lo is kind of known for her super racy ensembles. I mean who could forget that green plunging Versace number she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards?Continue Reading >

Sure, the weather is warming up, but that doesn't mean that I'm ready to ditch my trousers just yet. I don't know about you, but I get kind of bored of denim, especially during the warmer months.

Really, what's not to like?Continue Reading >
