First Trimester Fitness

When I put up that little questions box on stories after announcing my pregnancy, one of my most asked questions was about my workout routine. If I was still taking Barry's. What I was doing for workouts. Etc. So I am going over all things first-trimester fitness today. Please keep in mind that this is what was approved for me by my doctor, so if you have any questions, I would be sure to check with yours before starting any kind of workout routine while pregnant!

Affordable Swimsuits for all Body Types

As a curvy girl myself, I know how hard it is to find affordable swimsuits. Especially ones that are flattering, well today I am sharing with you a brand that does both: Aerie. This is nothing new on the blog, but I thought I would dedicate an entire post to it now that I have quite a few of their suits that have lasted quite a while and the quality has really held up! In the past I would spend upwards of $100 on a swimsuit that made me feel confident, but I finally found a brand that is both affordable and flattering. Their styles are young and modern, and I always know they will fit! This is not sponsored in any way, but I just wanted to share some of my favorite styles that work for my body type. I am trying to pre-pack for my honeymoon, and putting all of my Aerie swimsuits into packing cubes inspired this post!

“Fat” at Fashion Week: The Truth

Body image, fashion week, Two Peas in a Prada, Chromat Note: this is an old post that I am re-sharing because packing for Fashion Week always brings up the same thoughts, and I wanted to share this post with our new readers! A lot of brands have come a long ways since the original publish date of this post; but we have some work to do still. Original post: From September, 2016. I use the term, "fat," lightly -- because it's something I often joke about with my friends, it's something say about myself after I've eaten too many carbs or a cupcake. But that is what I felt the majority of our trip to New York. Don't get me wrong, Fashion Week was a dream come true. But there was one thing that left a bad taste in my mouth: barely any designers used "real women." It made me sad, it made me concerned, and it made me wonder what, if anything,  I can do to change it. I saw some things at Fashion Week that I didn't like -- read more to find out! Read More
