Yours Clothing

Yours Clothing is a store based out of the UK specializing in sizes 14-32. I must say that I am very pleased with the quality and style of the clothing. I am in love with their leggings and tights, they are the best fit and flattering leggings I've ever purchased. I have also ordered 3 dresses from this website.

As far as fit goes I'd say order a size down from your regular size. So if you are an 18 order a 16, especially in the leggings. Other wise they will send you a size up from what you wanted. This happened to me and I had to take my dresses to a seamstress to get adjusted.

Shipping is $16 but they deliver fast. I ordered dresses on a Monday that I needed by Friday and they were mailed to me by Wed. The only thing is that make sure what you are ordering is something you really want because they don't pay for returns and it cost lots of money to send these items back overseas (which is why I opted to get them adjusted).

Other than that I will say that I plan on ordering more from Yours clothing because the clothes are reasonably priced ($50-$60 for dresses) and well made out of quality material.

Outfit of the Night (Homecoming edition)

Shoes- SE Boutique from DSW.
Dress- Black Lace Gaga Sleeve from Yours Clothing. I had to take this dress to a seamstress to get taken up and in. Make sure you order a size down from the size you want. So if you need an 18 order a 16.

Blonde Bombshell

I made a visit to Curltopia last weekend to get my yearly color done. My stylist was Brittany and she did an amazing job, she replaced the girl who did my hair last year, Taylor. We did three layers of colors with the top being a copper blonde, the middle section an auburn color, and the bottom a dark copper brown color. It is so pretty and I love it. Please if you are ever thinking about getting your natural hair colored then Brittany at Curltopia is the girl you need to see.

It's Been Too Long

I'm back and so so sorry for the long absence. My computer was sick and I had to send it away for a while to get fixed. School is also getting in the way of my But I am back and have a lot of exciting things to blog about. I want to do more post about clothes, dieting and exercise, make-up, and all that other stuff us girls like to talk about. I've been thinking about adding a outfit of the day series but IDK yet. Anyway sorry for being away and thanks for sticking with me.

Healthy Eating Challenge

My biggest problem with losing weight is eating out. I eat out almost every day of the week sometimes more than once per day. This week I am challenging myself to only eat meals that I've prepared myself from home. This includes homecooking everything and nothing microwaveable. This will take a lot of time because I'll have to plan each meal and snacks but it is worth it because I like to cook and I think my cooking is better than most restaurants. Last night, I made spicy cajun chicken, rice, and green beans wih tomatos and it was delish!!

I think this will cause me to try new recipes and be a little adventurous in the kitchen. I'll keep you all posted on how it goes and new recipes that I try. My hope is to reduce eating out to only twice a month and to add variety to what I can cook.

The Conclusion- June Fitness Challenge

At the end of the June challege I stepped on a scale and found that I lost....drum roll please....5 lbs. I can't say that I am disappointed though because as I've said before it was hard for me to stick to the calorie restrictions so that is probably the main reason I didn't lose as much as I wanted. Welp this is another month and I am full-fledged into getting to my goal weight. I think I'm going to do an 1800 calorie diet instead of 1500, I should be able to stick to that a lot better. It's a shame though to have a love affair with food when you are trying to lose weight...smh but this will not defeat

I'll do monthly weigh-ins but you guys have to keep me in check because I don't like to weigh myself. I'd rather just notice weight loss by my pants getting to big and people telling me "oh you look like you lost weight".

Coastal Scents Haul

Yippeee!!! Coastal Scents is having a great sale on some of their best palettes. I have been wanting the 66 lip palette forever and when I heard of this sale and saw that the lip color palette was on it I jumped on. I purchased the 66 lip color palette and the 10 concealer camouflage palette. I use the camo quad concealer palette in dark and I love it. Though I only get use out of the medium color it fits me perfectly and I almost never leave my house without dabbing a bit under my eyes. Well they don't sell the camo quads in the summer which I didn't know so I purchased the concealer palette. The picture on the site looked like there were about 3 shades I could use but in person I think I may be able to use about 4 of the shades which is sooo worth the 11 bucks it cost.

They also sent me a free eyeshadow sample of Golden moss which is a gorgeous goldish green kinda color along with a small makeup bag for spending over 20 bucks.

**I'll do a few review after I try these out...I am soo excited about the blues.
