Are Spanx’s black, faux leather leggings the only ones worth getting?!

A wordy title, but it’s the essence of today’s quick review of Spanx leggings. I’m a huge fan of Spanx – particularly their faux leather leggings. I got my first pair – black moto – a few years ago and they more than paid for themselves over the course of that winter. I found myselfContinue reading “Are Spanx’s black, faux leather leggings the only ones worth getting?!”

Can Curvy Girls Shop at Revolve?

The models at Revolve remind me a bit of VS Angels – all impossibly long, slim, gleaming limbs and 0% body fat. I’ve long admired the clothes they model, but would anything actually fit me?

Sunrise Hike at Devil’s Garden – Day 5

Who wants to sleep in and enjoy lazy mornings whilst on vacation?! Meeeeee! Hmmm, well we had had several days of doing just that and they were blissful.
