Get your Sexy On....Celebrate Your Curves!

A while back I wrote a post entitle Bringin booty back, and yes it is back with a vengeance.  But what excites me more is the fact that the booty craze has  given way to another.  Full figured gals are now finally being recognized as the beautiful sexy women that they truly are.  Curves are back baby!  Imagine that.  Makes perfect sense to me but hey, some of us could be a little slow sometimes.

Blazing a trail that I am sure many will follow, H&M launched their Summer campaign featuring  curvaceous women decked out in gorgeous swim suits. Women that we can all identify with.  Finally.

Coming from a family of ahem blessed women myself, I can truly say that it is about darn time!  Check out some of the pics that have eyes a poppin and tongues a waggin.  Enjoy!

From Lamb To Lion

This is a true story as recounted to me by my mom.  It really demonstrates that true courage is present in all creatures........even a lamb.

Last week on a whim, my mom purchased a lamb.  Not rack of lamb, but a real live, cute cuddly woolly lamb.  My mom named her Julia.  Reason for buying Julia?  Well.  Let's just say that Julia may  have been destined for babacue sauce at some point.  More on this later....

Anyway, Julia somehow escaped her enclosure and was reaping havoc on a near by vegetable garden.  The little lamb was out of control. 

And having a ball.  

Well, my mom eventually got a few men to corral the lamb so she could return her to her enclosure but alas, miss Julia wasn't having it.   She sidestepped the men and off she went.  Well after this happened repeatedly, the big gun was called to the site.  Enter Grover.  My aunt's Verna's mammoth size dog. 

With the command "sic em Grover", he was off. He charged full speed at Julia but Julia had a surprise for him.  She held her ground and then suddenly charged full speed at him!  Grover promptly did an 180, tucked his tail and ran as if his life depended on it with Julia hot on his heels.  It didn't help that he was howling as he ran.  Poor grover.  He jumped straight unto my aunts lap.  Only then did Julia stop chasing him.  

Needless to say, Grover has permanently ruined his macho reputation and Julia....well she will not be on anyones plate any time soon.  Lol, this lamb is a soldier.  I made a deal with mom deal to buy her freedom.  Long live Julia!

The Boho Chic Skirt - A Fabulous Blast From The Past

A few days ago my sister sent me an email with all kinds of fabulous boho chic skirts attached that she had found on the net.  It took me back.....way back and brought back so many good memories.  I remember the textures, originality and swag of those skirts.  They were daring and unapologetic.  Any girl wearing one of them, you just knew she could care less what you thought...she was her own woman in every sense of the word.

Somewhere along the way though, clothes became a lot more tame.





 Now, only the brave, eccentric, hippies, or out of the box personalities wear these skirts.  

So sad.

And so I bring to you my fav Boho chic skirts.  It really doesn't get any better than this.  I have a closet full of them and I wear them ever so proudly.  All it takes is a few modern touches to work this look.  Whether it is shoes and accessories or a simple tee shirt, this is a super easy style to modernize and rock.
But don't just take my word for it, check these pics out and see for yourself.  Enjoy!
