{Out of Whack}

 Hello lovelies! So did you notice that today was greatly lacking in a post? No Blogger NOT on a diet this week. Don't worry I am still NOT on a diet. I even lost a pound this week! Oh and thanks to my Mom and dad..I got a membership to Gold's Gym for my birthday. My big 2-8 B-day is this Friday. I had great things planned for this week. New tutorials, new fashion posts, features, etc. Nothing will be up this week though. I am having some dental problems and needless to say on Thursday I have to go in and have a tooth extracted, so I will be laying low this week. Hopefully finding some time to sew and craft in between taking pain medications. I will hopefully be pack this weekend for the linky party and blog hop though. Can't wait to see you all then!

Oh and because no post is finished without pictures, here are a few of my favorite Handmade Gosling pics from this past week.

What I Wore: Fashion To Figure Review

 Photobucket

I am very excited to share what I wore today. A few weeks ago, I received a letter from the ever lovely ladies at FashiontoFigure.com They carry very trendy and fashionable clothes for plus size women at great fast fashion prices. They asked me if I wanted to review one of their pieces and blog about it. Well let me tell you, I was beyond excited! I got to pick one thing from their site and it was dang hard! There were so many things to choose from. I went with this simple pencil skirt in black. It came with the yellow belt too! I love having this new staple in my wardrobe. It is super comfy and perfect for dressing up with heels, or dressing down with flats. I definitely heart my new pencil skirt. Check out FashiontoFigure.com They a huge selection of fashionable plus size clothing. So own those curves and happy shopping!



P.S.

Thank you to this little Miss. She was my amazing photographer!

The Ruffled Clutch

 Photobucket

Happy Tuesday! I have a new tutorial for you today, which I am way excited to share! First off though I have to tell you about my pictures. All of my pictures were edited with Picmonkey. Have I mentioned the monkey is my new best friend? I don't think I have, so let me tell you....the monkey and me are new besties! Love it! Spent all last night playing around with pictures and working on this tutorial for ya. It is seriously so awesome....the tutorial and the monkey I mean. I can't wait to tell you more about  picmonkey later this week, I am working on a "how to" tutorial for ya.

Well anywho last week I got a fun package in the mail from Fat Qurater Shop. Remember them? They are hosting a give-away on the ole blog this week. If you haven't entered, please do so. FQS is giving away a bundle of fabric. How cool is that? You can find the link at the bottom of this post or in my side bar, under gievaways. I received this beautiful damask fabric in the mail and was so excited to start creating with it. So many fun projects came to mind, but then I saw a ruffled clutch over on The Little Giggler and decided I needed to have one. Amanda's was just too cute! Now I did alter mine a bit. Honestly I just didn't want to do a zipper like Amanda. I was being lazy. So let me show you how I made my own version of the Ruffled Clutch.

Blogger NOT on a Diet: Week #2

 Photobucket

Happy Monday Lovelies! I have officially NOT been on a diet for two weeks and it is seriously rocking. I am quite proud that two weeks have gone by and I am still going strong. I think this is the longest I have NOT been on a diet, since I had my daughter. I usually got discouraged and went for those chips after a day or so. The craving was just way to much. This has not been the case this time, and I am so happy about that. My energy is still going strong. I want to tell you all about my week, in a fun Q and A format, but I have to say something first.

I.HAVE.THE.BEST.READERS.EVER!!

Seriously folks. I shared my first Blogger NOT on a Diet post last week and man did you guys show some comment love and support. So many of you said you were on board and joining the NOT diet fun! I am so excited that we can all do this together!

I am so excited to be making this healthy change with all
you lovely ladies and gents!

So since some of you wanted to join the fun, but weren't to sure about posting pics, weights and other personal stuff to go with your posts, I came up with a solution. It is all in this Question and Answer format below. I am going to answer these questions each week, allowing me to tell you all about the highs and lows of my week NOT on a diet. If you want to share your thoughts as well, copy and paste the questions, put them in a post with my button, and link up below. I thought it would be a fun way to see how everyone is living healthy NOT on a diet. It will be a great way to inspire one another. I am very excited!

So now onto my week.....
