Spring Style at Wal-Mart (yes, Wal-Mart!)

Recently I've seen some of my favorite bloggers buzzing about some new clothing lines at Wal-Mart, so of course I needed more information. Turns out, Wal-Mart is re-vamping their clothing offerings across the store and with that are two new ladies lines - Time & Tru and Terra & Sky. Time & Tru offers straight sizes but does go to size 22 while Terra & Sky is the plus size offering starting at size 14 and going up to size 26. In theory if you're a size 14 to 22 you could shop both lines so since I fall into this category I decided to test it out.
 
First off, it's important to note that Time & Tru also has accessories - jewelry, handbags, shoes and even swimsuits / cover ups. Look at these super cute earrings I scored - they were $4 y'all!!!!!
 
 
 
Look at all the earrings! I had a very difficult time sticking to just one pair, I think next time I'll grab the black and white flowers and a pair of tassels.
 
So now let me show you some things I tired on, please don't judge my black bar too hard.
 
I really liked this ruffle tee - tees are such a get versatile piece and the ruffle makes it a little fun and on trend. As you can see, you need to wear a nude bra with it but it does come in four colors (at least that I saw in store)
 
 
Also fun is this ruffle sleeve jumpsuit which comes in at least four colors. I'm seriously considering this for my cruise in April as I think it's something that could be dressed up or dressed down but I'd like to wear with my swimsuit on excursions.
 
 
Finally I tried on this boho style top which sadly was too tight for me but would be really cute on a smaller size.


 

 
 I tried on several other not knit items but they did not work for me. I'd say the sizing runs a size small which for most won't be a problem. My store didn't';t have the entire collection in store but here's some knit tops I saw online I've very interested in:
 
 


 
Now let's move onto the Terra & Sky collection. This collection doesn't have nearly as many in store or online selection but there was still some cute items to grab.
 
This Chambray dress runs true to size and also comes in several prints. I actually wound up purchasing this dress and it's under $20.
 
 
This ruffle top was super cute but loose on top and snug on the hips - I do like it but the next size up wasn't available in store so I'll have to purchase on line and it does come in several prints as well. Clearly though I'm feeling Chambray right now.
 
 
Here's some of the items I have my eye on online. The pink pants have REALLY good reviews.
 


 
Overall I think both collections are nice. I would have loved to have seen a line that offered the same styles in both straight and plus like Target does but it's a nice start in upping the clothing game.

$40 Date at Old Dominick

Lately I've been turning Friday into finance Friday around here and while budgeting and spending appropriately is all super important I think it's important for y'all to know that being financially responsible isn't all excel , numbers and paperwork. So, I'm resurrecting a series I used to post here - $40 Dates! The idea is pretty simple - every couple needs a date night (or afternoon) whether you're newly dating or married with five kids and a date night doesn't always have to mean getting dressed up and having an expensive dinner - in fact I think the best way to keep your dates fun and stress free is by making sure they're not a financial burden, because date night shouldn't be put on the back burner either. It's been a few years since I started this concept and when I told myself I need to do better about date night in my own marriage I seriously considered upping the spend to $50 but here's the deal - $40 is super easy and it's a …

Body Confidence

I have people tell me a lot that "I'm so confident" with such a tone of surprise and while really I think it's just that I'm a plus size women who happens to be loud and doesn't try to hide from the world but sometimes if I'm in a sensitive mood I'll take that as umm, don't you own a mirror, you should maybe be quiet and go to the gym. I'd say about 90% of the time I can say although I don't have my ideal body I don't hate myself and I don't let it keep me from living my life but then there's that 10% of the time . . .

Last week I had such a moment, You may have noticed that my pics I post on social media are either of me standing or are chest up if I'm sitting - now this is partially because I typically only take pics seated if I'm showing off a product so I was a more close up anyway but also here's something this people never have to think about - when you're plus size and you sit down if consolidates all t…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

Brahmin Saddle Creek Grand Opening

Earlier this month the new Brahmin store opened at The Shops of Saddle Creek and Memphis could not have been more excited! I arrived right before the doors opened and there was already a crowd formed ready to explore all the goodies inside. Brahmin provided some delicious champagne punch to toast to the grand opening and it wasn't too long after the doors opened that the store was completely full - it took me 1/2 an hour to check out that's how popular the grand opening was! But enough talk, they say a picture is worth a 1,000 words so I'm keeping the text on this post brief and just letting y'all see all the fun inside. Summer 2018 Collection on display right as you walk in   Yummy snacks provided by Brahmin  As you can see, it was very crowded inside The belt bag - can be worn three ways

All the wristlets!

Southern Living Idea House

The week AFTER I got back from Nashville over the summer from my sorority annual trip I received my August Southern Living with the Southern Living Idea House for this year . . . Located in Nashville, TN. So annoying! Sorry sisters that I wasn't on top of knowing about this. However, since I only live 3 hours away I was able to visit. 
The house is on the Fontanel property northwest of nashville , not too far from town but secluded. Once it closes for Southern  Living tours it will re-open February 7th as The Inn at Fontanel. 
Due to the cold weather, they had a tented walkway so we couldn't get an outdoor pic, this photo is from southern living.com : 


Lets head inside . . .  (PS: please appreciate my dedication to sharing the house with you, I usually do not like posting public pics sans makeup)
Upon entry besides being greeted by a beautiful very large and open living room we were welcomed by a lady staffing the house. She was very nice to take our picture by the gorgeous t…
