Reviewing Kiyonna's Promenade Top

In today's post Hailey reviews the Promenade Top from Kiyonna, a soft knit top perfect for spring, summer, and travel! Hailey also reviews the Denim Crop by Melissa McCarthy and Dansko Belle Blue Madras Sneakers. - #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaPlusYou #LaneBryant #MelissaMcCarthy #seven7 #tiedye #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #spring #summer #style

I'm always looking forward to seeing what styles Kiyonna (sizes 10-32) introduces for the spring and summer.  While they always bring classic silhouettes in pretty colors year round, with festive frocks and interesting details thrown in, I enjoy their use of patterns and color that pop up in the warmer months. 

I'm a long time fan of the Promenade Top, so I am really happy to be sharing a review of the new Indigo Tie Dye version, with a little review of these denim capris by Melissa McCarthy Seven7 and my new Dansko sneakers thrown in. Enjoy!

My Favorite Travel Accessories and Sunscreen

My Favorite Travel Accessories and Sunscreen - #COOLA #Supergoop #sunscreen #travel #vacation #travelaccessories #whattopack

Today, in the first of many Maui-related posts, I am talking about some of my favorite travel accessories.  This list includes packing tools, makeup and beauty bags and containers, travel bags, hair tools, and a few miscellaneous items.  I'm also going over my favorite face and body "healthier" sunscreens that we took on our trip.

Outlander at Emerald City Comicon 2017

Outlander at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle Recap, with stops at The Whisky Bar and Blueacre Seafood. - #ECCC #ECCCOutlander #Outlander #samheughan #caitrionabalfe #seattle #thewhiskybar #blueacreseafood

I'm nursing a sickness I picked up at Comicon or that Sean possibly brought home from work.  Basically, I feel super run down, scratchy throat, stuffed nose, no focus.  I rarely get sick, so when I am it really kicks my butt and also makes me really mad.  But I'm trying to push through and get a few things done at least.

In today's post, I am recapping my whirlwind weekend in Seattle for Emerald City Comicon.  Sean and I went to the con on Friday, March 3rd, so I could participate in all the Outlander-related goodness.  I found out the lead actors of Outlander, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, were going to be at the con via a Facebook video a few days before we left for our vacation in January.  As I have become quite Outlander obsessed, I looked at Sean and said, " I have to go. I just have to."  Seattle is roughly three hours away, so it isn't like it is that far in the scheme of things.  We snatched up all the tickets we would need for the event and booked our hotel right away.  And then suddenly the day was here.

Reviewing Kiyonna's Kelsey Flounce Top

In today's post Hailey reviews the Kelsey Flounce Top from Kiyonna, a multi-way top that can be worn tied in front or as a tunic length piece!- #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaPlusYou #Eloquii #XOQ #denimskirt #crocs #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #winter #spring #summer #fall #style

Hello!!  I'm so happy to be back with an outfit post this week!  It has been a slow blog month as I transition back from vacation and work on getting organized, but I have so many things I am excited to share with y'all.  March should allow me more time to get to those things and post a bit more.  Thanks for your continued friendship!

In today's post, I'm reviewing the Kelsey Flounce Top from Kiyonna!  When it was time to make a decision about my next feature, I had to choose this top.  I loved the Sangria color and flirty ruffle; and I also knew exactly how I wanted to wear it with that cute casual tie front.  So get ready for spring fashion and read over my review of the Kelsey Flounce Top!

Savannah Trip Sightseeing: Dolphin Cruise, Hilton Head, Bonaventure Cemetery, Old Fort Jackson, Downtown

 In today's post, Hailey reminsces on her trip to Savannah, Georgia to visit her sister, and talks of the sightseeing adventures from the trip.- #Savannah #SavannahGA #travel #vacation #plussizetravel #dolphincruise #hiltonhead #alligatorsoul #downtownsavannah #oldfortjackson #bonaventurecemetery #wormsloeplantation

My third and final post about our trip to Savannah is finally here!  It seems life got extremely busy once we got back and hasn't really slowed down since.  My husband and I ventured to Savannah, Georgia for Thanksgiving 2015 and had a lovely time with my sister and her family.  I lived in Georgia for a bit in my mid-teens, but never really saw much of Savannah then.  Sean has barely been to the South until now.  We did go to Augusta, Georgia back in 2007 for my sister's wedding, but he mostly saw places I grew up and "met" my dad when we visited my dad's grave. 

This trip, I was happy we could sightsee together and look at some of the more historic locations, in addition to all the family fun we had.  (You can revisit my Savannah Outfits Post and Family and Sightseeing Post.)  While I lived in the South most of my life, so much of the scenery and vegetation and food was rare or totally new to Sean.  When we were planning possible activities for the trip, I wanted to make sure he saw whatever he wanted of this area while we were here.  As with any trip, there is never enough time for everything, which is why we have a Southern Coastal Road Trip on our future travel list.

Still, we managed to fit a lot of fun in!  We headed off with the family to dolphin watch in Hilton Head.  We visited Bonaventure Cemetery, the gate of Wormsloe Plantation, and Old Fort Jackson.  Then we headed back to Downtown Savannah for walking around, shopping, and dinner.  Enjoy!

(This is a picture heavy post, just FYI.)

Phone Loop Review: A Helpful Strap for Easier Phone Handling

 In today's post, Hailey is reviewing the Phone Loop, a strap for easier phone handling that adheres to the inside of your phone cover.  Get all the details on the blog! - #phoneloop #phoneloopreview #phoneaccessories #phonestrap

I try to be very choosy about what products and brands I do reviews for here on the blog.  I don't want items to be too random or totally not in line with what we talk about here, though I do like to try new things.  When the folks at Phone Loop reached out to me, I thought this handy little gadget was too fun to pass up.

In today's post, I'm reviewing the Phone Loop, a simple and convenient little gadget that attaches to your phone case to help you hold your phone easier.  I was sent a couple of the Phone Loops from the Quebec-based company and have been using them on my phone ever since.  For the past few months, I have tried both the grosgrain and satin strap styles.  Read on for my thoughts and experience with the Loop!

Plus Size Lingerie: Hips and Curves Bralettes, Lace Camisole, Corset and Skirt Set Review

In today's plus size lingerie post, Hailey reviews bralettes from Torrid and Hips and Curves, and includes reviews of the All Lace Camisole and Two Piece Velvet Corset and Skirt Set from Hips and Curves. - #Torrid #TorridInsider #hipsandcurves #plussizelingerie #lingerie #bralettes #plussizebralettes #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #plussizeclothing

I'm back from vacation!  Sean and I had a wonderful second honeymoon in Maui. I look forward to sharing all the fun with you in future posts. (Though it will be a while because we took over 5,400 photos and I need time to edit and organize them.)  I am still posting photos from the holiday over on Instagram if you want to check them out.

For my first post back, I am reviewing various styles from Hips and Curves (sizes Large to 6X; Band sizes 36 to 48), a brand specializing in plus size lingerie.  I have talked about them on the blog before when I reviewed another bralette and panties and have also reviewed thigh high stockings from the brand as well.  These are all items I have bought on my own.  I am not sponsored by them or gifted anything, though I am using affiliate links in this post.

I have found it a rather difficult task to find other women with my same body shape reviewing these items, which is part of the reason I am enthusiastic about doing it.  Hips and Curves has quality items that are very cute and make me feel awesome!  If I can help another woman find that for herself, my work is done.  Enjoy the following review and let me know if you have tried anything from Hips and Curves.
