Hello Adele, Welcome Back...How I Miss You!

Adele's new single is finally here, she is definitely a voice for a generation of women. I love her deep soulful voice and the power she has with it. Here is her latest song and video "Hello". I also shared what she has to say about this new album and what it means to her. Adele is definitely wise beyond her young 25 years. This resonates with me at 40, I am ready to say "Hello" to who I really am and the woman I want to be. So happy for Adele for coming to this discovering at 25, some of us took a little longer, but glad we are both there!

What do you think about this new song and video?


When I was 7, I wanted to be 8. When I was 8, I wanted to be 12. When I turned 12 I just wanted to be 18. Then after that I stopped wanting to be older. Now I’m ticking 16-24 boxes just to see if I can blag it! I feel like I’ve spent my whole life so far wishing it away. Always wishing I was older, wishing I was somewhere else, wishing I could remember and wishing I could forget too. Wishing I hadn’t ruined so many good things because I was scared or bored. Wishing I wasn’t so matter of fact all the time. Wishing I’d gotten to know my great grandmother more, and wishing I didn’t know myself so well, because it means I always know what’s going to happen in the end. Wishing I hadn’t cut my hair off, wishing I was 5’7”. Wishing I’d waited and wishing I’d hurried up as well.
My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. But I haven’t got time to hold on to the crumbs of my past like I used to. What’s done is done. Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties. Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully-fledged adult, I made the decision to go into becoming who I’m going to be forever without a removal van full of my old junk. I miss everything about my past, the good and the bad, but only because it won’t come back. When I was in it I wanted out! So typical. I’m on about being a teenager: sitting around and chatting shit, not caring about the future because it didn’t matter then like it does now. The ability to be flippant about everything and there be no consequences. Even following and breaking rules… is better than making the rules.
25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.

Plus Fashion Show at Macy's with Plus Model Emme

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. 

It's not to often I get to attend a fashion show, and it's even more rare to attend a plus size fashion show. Well thanks to Macy's and Plus Model Emme, I get to do both! Macy's is having a fun free fashion event hosted by Plus Model Emme. If you are not familiar with Emme, she is the worlds first plus size super model. I truly believe Emme, opened the eyes of the fashion world to plus size fashion and women with curves. She has been a major influence on the plus size fashion community around the world. Emme is not only the worlds first plus size super model, but also built a community around positive body image and embracing your curves. We can all use a good role model when it comes to embracing and loving ourselves no matter what size we may be. Don't you agree?

I am excited to be a part of the positive body image movement as well as the plus size fashion community. I've been blogging for 6 years about plus fashion and have seen its evolution from lack luster frocks to stylish trendy pieces.  Not only has the fashion evolved, but so have I along with the plus community. Everywhere you go you see more curvy ladies proudly showing off their style with confidence.  We have more options and places to shop than ever, which makes me very excited! Now, you can be a part of this movement too, on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at Macy's Rancho Cucamonga, CA at 2:00pm. Come meet Plus Model Emme and enjoy a fabulous fashion show, with all the latest trends in plus size fashion.  You can RSVP at for this free event. 

I am looking forward to the plus fashion show with Emme, highlighting the seasons newest looks from Melissa McCarthy Seven7, Calvin Klein, INC, Michael Kors and many more - all for us curvy ladies!  After the show you can stay for a shopping party. You can meet Emme, enjoy refreshments and take home an exclusive cosmetics travel bag with a purchase of $75 or more in the Macy's Woman department.  Plus, let the MyStylists help you find the perfect look and gift for every occasion.  I will be there too, enjoying the fashion show, shopping and even helping you shop!  I'm great at finding the best deals and sales for every budget. 

If you're in Southern California, hope to see you at Macy's! Make sure you come say hi and show me all the great fashions you found.
