What to wear to work: Black & White & Bright

Nothing makes me feel better than bright colors. I am also a huge fan of black and white – so why not put the two together!

What I am wearing:

Black & white polka dotted shirt (Dress Barn) – Thrifted for $2.00

Yellow knee length skirt (Golden Flava) – Thrifted for $3.00

Black strappy sandals (Cloudwalkers) – Thifted for $2.50

The entire outfit cost $7.50. I did have to get the zipper replaced on the skirt which was $10 at my local dry cleaners – so if you ad that on, the entire outfit was a whopping $12.50!!

Shopping on a dime (Thrifting) is one of my favorite things to do!

I am BACK! (I took a short hiatus)

I took a hiatus from Naturally Curvaceous to take a minute to focus on what I want for myself and what I want for this blog.

I am BACK!

My promise to my subscribers and readers is that I will post at least once a week on my blog. I will still focus on fashion (on a dime), natural hair, being curvaceous, weight loss, and of course my random thoughts.

What I wanted to achieve for myself was:

  • A healthier lifestyle – some of which I will document on this blog
  • An addition to our family – a Yorkie named Nitro that I am sure you all will meet soon
  • A way to incorporate more family time into my schedule (with fun, free events, of course!) I will be sharing those with you as well.

For the blog I want to stay true to my authentic self and hopefully post information that is entertaining and interesting.

Thank you for sticking with me through this time, now let’s get on with it!!

Yes, I did the BIG CHOP (actually twice!)

I know there is much discussion over to do the BIG CHOP or not. I have been natural for 2 years and during my transition period I got so tired of trying to deal with the 2 textures – the new growth of natural hair and the old relaxed, straggly hair that was just hanging out on my ends. I was hard to create a decent hair style with these 2 textures so one day I cut about 80% of the relaxer off but I was scared to cut it any shorter. About two weeks went by and I decided why not – so I did! It was the best thing I ever did for my hair. Finally getting rid of all of the relaxer made me feel free! I wanted to shout from the mountain top that all of the creamy crack was gone.

Everyone has to do what is best for them but for me it was the BIG CHOP all the way!

My name is Yani and I am brand new to the blogging scene. I am starting this blog to share my thoughts on natural hair, being curvaceous, finding style bargains in thrift stores or flea markets, weight loss (or lack there of), my love of food, which could be the problem with the weight loss and just my random thoughts on anything that may pop into my mind.

I currently reside in Capitol Heights, MD. I am the mother of just one 10 year old boy who is the love of my life. I am recently engaged so I will not be offering any dating advice but I may give my thoughts on how to keep a relationship going.

I am a very simple woman that likes to keep as many “coins” in my pocket as possible. So I will share some of my frugal ways with you in hopes to keep the “coins” in your pocket too.

So sit back, relax, read, make comments and please share this blog with your friends!
