Fashion Find Friday: Linen Pants

I've written about them before but my love for the Old Navy linen blend pants has no end. This year they come in tall and petite, they also come in more colors. 

I already own black , navy , tan and a dark teal. This year I have purchased white , a light teal and a denim style. I delayed my purchase this year because it was still cool in Memphis and unfortunately I missed out on the pink. If anyone has a pair just not working out in XL please let me know! 

So recently I wore my white pants with a lightweight sweater to work for casual Friday. I had the bf take this pic right when I got home. 


I don't think I'll wear those shoes with these again but oh well. The point I'm making here is that I was super casual. 

I left the office a little later than usual and we had 7:30pm symphony tickets, so not a lot of time to change it up but I wanted to be more dressy. So I swapped out the jewelry, purse and shoes and threw on a murfee. Ta-da, instant comfortably dressy: 



Memphis friends, you can expect to see me out and about a lot on the look this summer. Plus it will be a nice way to utilize the murfees. 

One note I do want to make is I am a firm believer in sizing up when wearing white. White if stretched will become see through, it is also less forgiving figure wise. I don't feel going up a size makes me look bigger and I'm certainly a lot less conscious. As a plus size girl I was afraid of white for the longest time but any color clothing can be slimming when worn properly, what's not slimming is being a stuffed sausage in clothes, even if they are black. 

Last year I had the pants dry cleaned. This year I've been washing and I must say, I just prefer how the look when dry cleaned, plus the do shrink a little in the dryer. Since the white are big I might throw in the dryer a few times. 

Because I bought this pair in store they are regular length but I have the waist band unfolded and worn low, I'm 5'10 and wearing a low heal in each pic. I can wait for the talls I ordered online to arrive. And oh, please cross your fingers they make more colors!

Medical Facial at Ashtoria

Y'all, it has been soooooo long since I've tried a new beauty treatment to share with y'all. Partially because I've fallen into a skin care routine but also partially because it hasn't been an areas of focus, which is terrible because taking care of your skin should always be an area of focus. Lucky for me the ladies as Ashtoria were able to get me back on track.  

I recently found out about Ashtoria while attending an event at The Shops of Carriage Crossing and was excited to learn about the medical aesthetics offerings. Although I put a hold on getting Botox a few years ago I'm always down to check out the latest in anti aging. I'd love to one day get laser treatments but I don'[t feel like I'm there yet so for an entry level introduction into the Ashtoria offerings I decided to book a medical grade facial. One thing that I typically find overwhelming when thinking about getting a facial is there can be so many types to choose from and I'm u…

$40 Date - Sushi Jimmi

For the longest time in Memphis some of the best sushi in town came from a gas station. Everyone from Memphis reading this is now nodding and smiling and everyone out of town now has now scrunched up their face and is saying "eww". But seriously, "Sushi Jimmi" has been making sushi daily and delivering it to be sold in the little pre-packed containers for years and it is so good. Luckily for Memphians we can now get this delicious sushi fresh and it's a prefect place for a casual date night. Sushi Jimmi is not a fancy or hip décor filled sushi joint - it's in an old Wendy's. But it's clean, convenient and most of all -cheap! Here's the menu: The sushi rolls are very generous! We are able to go and split the crawfish nachos and one sushi roll so with tax and tip we can get out on $30.
The Godzilla Roll
Spicy Crawfish Nachos The food comes out pretty quickly so we're usually in and out in an hour leaving us time to catch a movie at the $3 …

Gingham Style for Any Size

Oh my goodness, I think we skipped spring and went straight to summer in Memphis y’all!And considering the weather won’t even think of cooling down until the end of October I’m looking at a long stretch of needing warm weather clothing. Now don’t get me wrong, I love floral just as much as the next girly girl but my favorite spring / summer print is actually gingham.

I knew I wanted to talk more about gingham I didn’t want to just show y’all the same pieces you’ve already seen me in and I also wanted to show how gingham is something truly for everyone– luckily I have a great tribe of blogger babes in Memphis so I can share with you gingham styled differently and worn on different sizes!
When Denise and Magen agreed to show off gingham style with me I kept the guidelines pretty simple – wear something gingham. So I love how with no planning on our parts not only did we all style gingham differently and pick different colors we also picked different pieces.
I would love to buy a gingham …

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Anti Aging High vs Low Review

I recently received the Iconic Edition of the Sephora Play Box (read my review here) and one of the products I was most excited to try out was Crème de La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream because well it's super famous and also hella expensive so of course I wanted to know what's the big deal. The .24 oz sample included was enough for about two week's use - so a one ounce jar would last about 2 months. About a week in as I was getting ready in the morning I starting noticing that my skin did indeed look different - I looked clearer and under my eyes my lines looked a little softer and my circles less dark. I took this selfie to document my skins look - because #vain - plus I knew I would need it for this longer review. I think there's still room for improve with my skin's texture but it had only been a week.
My problem was that a month's supply - the .5 oz jar - is $85 and while that might not seem bad to some it is in major conflict with my goal of being fina…
