If you’ve been following my YouTube channel this week (you are subscribed, right?) you know I’ve recently spent some time in the Caribbean with one of my dearest friends, Gavyn from The Curvy Cutie. To say that Nassau and the Bahamas is a dream come true is an understatement. The weather is perfect, the palm trees are lush and tower over you, clusters of coconuts hiding below the leaves. The air smells like the sea and everywhere you turn, you feel like Keira Knightley in Pir
I think El Matador Beach in Malibu might actually be the gateway to heaven. As most of you know, the Husband and I decided to get a second residence here in Los Angeles (being out here for work so often and those hotel rates were killing me!) and because of that I’ve completely immersed myself in that beachside life. My normal haunt is Santa Monica. Touristy, yes – but there’s something so electric about the energy of the traveling families, the way the kids laugh in delight
From the time I was a child, I knew I belonged in California. Maybe it was the shows (Saved by The Bell, California Dreams) or the music (basically every 80’s song is about being a California Girl, isn’t it?! Thanks, Beach Boys!) – but growing up in the frigid North of Canada, I knew this wasn’t where I would spend my life.
And even though I technically call Phoenix home (and I love it) the past year living part time in LA has really solidified the fact that this, near the oc
If you followed Swim Week last year, you know that I have an undying love for Monif C plus size swimwear. Every year, without a doubt, she brings innovation and design to her styles and this year’s release is no exception. I’m obsessed with this galaxy print – this purple makes me feel like an absolute QUEEN. I’m loving the straps – it really takes it to a new level. I went down to Santa Monica Pier and rocked this swimsuit in the sand, and the compliments flew. I have a feel
I’m so glad Swim Week is back! I’ve been sick for a few weeks now and it’s been killing me to be away from you guys and the blog, so it feels like the perfect way to come back and get back into the swing of things.
This is the first plus size swim week of the year (you can expect another one in about a month or so) and we’ve got a mix of two pieces and one pieces – so there are options for everyone.
For my first look, I’ve gone with a sweeter-than-pie strapless number* from
Who doesn’t want to be a mermaid? I know I do! And I found the most amazing swimwear line that will do just that. Before I dive in (ha!) I want to warn you this is going to sound like an advertisement, but I promise you it’s not. I have always been a supporter of smaller, indie artists – especially fashion designers. I don’t know, maybe it’s the rebel in me, but I love finding someone who is just started out, breaking ground and watching them grow… especially when they have a
Wedding week is coming to a close, and I thought it fitting that we end on the post-wedding festivities – the honeymoon!
But before I dive into my last post, I want to thank you for joining me in this special series. It was a lot of hard work and planning, so knowing that you enjoyed it made it so worth it! casual, urban, whimsical & glam. Today’s look is for the bride that is all about that resort life. Whether you’re honeymooning in the French Polynesian, Hawaii, the Carib
You know when you’re shopping, and you see something, and it’s like warm butter sliding down hot toast*? Somehow, everything is right with the world. You can see yourself frolicking around in it. In that outfit, you’ll have the most perfect day with the most perfect friends in the most perfect location?
That’s what this bikini was for me.
Although, if I’m being fair, that’s what almost everything in City Chic is to me.
So, anyway, I walked in the store with my good friend
It’s Swim Week here on Sometimes Glam – hooray!
I know some of you are still covered in snow, so I apologize for the next few days of sunshine and poolside images. I’m hoping this will get you excited for warmer days that are (hopefully) just around the corner. The bikini used to be a swim style reserved for our straight sized sisters. Thankfully, in the past few years, options have been popping up everywhere giving us plus sized ladies the opportunity to wear more than a bo
