Hello curvy babes!
We're two sisters who want to make the plus size world a better place. Have you ever wished you had a plus sized sister, or BFF who just got you? Have you ever wanted a helpful friend, or needed some advice? So did we. We are very lucky to have always had each other, and I don't know what we would do if we didn't have one another, so we want to share our stories, our heartache, and our accomplishments. Our goal with this lifestyle blog, is to give back to our plus size sisters and share everything we have learned over the years.
I am almost 28 years old (birthday is August 26th! YAY!) and I love all things Disney and dogs. I own Bombshell Bridal Boutique and Liz Louize with my sister, and I wouldn't change a thing about it. I love colorful anything and everything and try to add a little color into everything I touch. I adore anything Kate Spade and have a super fun collection of kitchy handbags. I am married to the best man in the world (he really is) who always supports me and encourages me to live my dreams. What other guy comes to a bridal show and helps you carry heavy items in and helps set up on his day off and NEVER complains?!
I had a hard childhood just as any chubby preteen would. I really wish I could have a plus size woman living her life to the fullest show me that being plus size actually isn't the worst thing. Growing up all my friends were TINY and I was always the "fat friend". I hated my body and I DREADED trying on clothes with my friends. When we would go shopping I would pretend I didn't feel like trying any clothes on because I didn't want them to know I would have to wear plus size (OH NO! NOT PLUS SIZE!). I wish I knew then what I know now and I wish I could have fallen in love with myself faster. I had nobody to tell me to love myself and nobody to tell me that I am perfect just the way I am.
My goal with this blog is to share my self love with all of you and be your cheerleader! I want to be the voice I needed in high school and hopefully I can inspire you and be the voice you needed to hear. Repeat after me: I am a strong, amazing woman who loves myself just as I am.
Hello new friend! I am so delighted that you've found us. It's my true passion to connect with and inspire other women, and to be the kind of role model that I needed growing up. Bombshell and Liz Louize have allowed me to do that to a degree, so I'm very excited to also have this outlet to reach more people! In addition to owning two awesome businesses with my sister and best friend, I LOVE dogs, especially my chihuahua Salsa. She's a crabby little angel. I have a classic-vintage style, I love couture handbags and shoes, and statement earrings are kinda my "thing." I'm married to the quirkiest, smartest, most interesting man I know, and he's pretty cute too! I'm a runner, a published author, aspiring TED presenter, history nerd, and travel junkie. I love to meditate, and I do my best to live every day to the fullest. I've learned a lot of lessons the hard way, so if I can ever offer a nugget of wisdom or insight I'm happy to do it! I'm in a place where I can finally say, that I love my life, and I want to share with the rest of the world how they can love their lives too!
