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.

Why I Blog

Years before I had an instagram account I had a Yelp account and I must admit that my very first review was a terrible 1 star review. While I think honest good and bad experiences are valuable on review sites I realized that's not the person I wanted to be. Instead of only putting negative thoughts into the world I challenged myself that for every negative review to take the time to write five positive reviews. Soon I found myself gushing over businesses I love and writing reviews of businesses I was trying for the first time. Within a few months I was invited to join the Elite squad - now I  have over 250 reviews and have reached gold elite status - this means I've been on the squad for five years. As much as I enjoy sharing reviews I enjoy reading them. I'm a planner and researcher by nature so before I go anywhere I want to know as much as possible. For example, when we go out to California we're going to have tea at the Hello Kitty Grand Café - I have read every …

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…

Essential Oil Make and Take

This year I've been doing a lot of homemade products and while it started off as being tired of running to the store for laundry detergent and face wash every few weeks its turned into more than that. As I researched and lookedup recipes   I started to discover that I could use homemade products for my health! I get migraines y'all and I will do ANYTHING to treat them. I've unsuccessful taken preventative medicine, destroyed my liver and stomach lining with OTC treatments for years, drained my bank account on prescription drugs, gone to the chiropractor, severally limited my alcohol and I still get them. My remaining options were: Botox, acupuncture, and moving to Colorado. But now I have hope. So where am I finding this hope? In essential oils. 
I've spent the past month really looking into it and decided I have nothing to lose. So as I was looking into different brands a FB friend posted that she was having an Essential Oils 101 class and Make and Take - perfect timin…

Holiday Mail

I love sending Christmas cards, I also love getting Christmas / holiday cards. Growing up Christmas cards were serious business. My Mom kept a book of who she sent them to and who sent one to us, three years and no card you were off the list. It's something my friends and I discuss today, seems like lots of moms ran their card list that way and now I find myself being a little less strict but keeping up with my list the same way. You would think that by 29 I'd have a pretty firm list of people I send Christmas cards to, but nope, it continues to change every year. Of course, the fact that I lost the disk with all the addresses from the prior year hurt a lot, that address list had every single person who attended my mom's memorial service or sent a card, it was a very handy but sad way to keep up with my non immediate family. A few years ago I use to think that I'd send a card to anyone that if I was to become engaged would make it onto my wedding guest list. Now that…

Lane Bryant x Girl With Curves Try On

If you wear a size 12+ unless you aren't on social media you've probably heard that Lane Bryant has launched a 20 piece collaboration with blogger Girl With Curves. With items selling out online on the launch day I knew I had to hurry up if I wanted to see things in store and try them on. 
The in-store display at the Southaven, MS location
The fitting room lighting was not great and while I'm not a fan of the mirror selfies sometimes you've got to work with what you have and I do want to be able to show you how these items fit. But, please don't judge my poor photo quality too much.
The item I wanted the most - like every other curvy girl apparently was the navy blue trench dress and this sold out online and was not in my local store. But, I was able to try on the other items I was most interested in.

The pleated lace black dress had a nice fit and I like how instead of a plain elastic waist it had a faux belt look. I think this dress would look waaaaay better …
