Plus Size New Year’s Eve Look | Wife Life

Happy New Year! Almost. I’m back to talk about breaking those stupid “rules” us plus-size women have been held to for so many years. We’re beautiful and we know it (though sometimes it’s hard) and we’re gonna wear what we want!

Winter Vibes | Why I Love Winter So Much

Winter Vibes I get asked all the time “why do you love winter?” and I get it. It’s cold. It seems eternal. Grey days far outnumber the sunny ones. If it snows anything less than 2 feet, you still have to go to work. I feel you. Those negatives about winter are pretty huge. But what about the positives? Coming in from a chilly day and warming up with a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate that warms you from your hands to ...
