My 60lb Weight Loss Transformation & Weight Gain Story


Today’s post is something that is very personal for me and just hard for me to do. If you have been following my blog you know that I started a weight loss segment called “LNL Weightloss” where I periodically feature women who have become healthier, lost weight and kept it off. But, I have never shared MY personal journey or struggles.

5 years ago, I lost 60lbs and kept it off for 3 years. I went from 270 to 210…from a 3X to a Large. And, slowly but surely, gained it all back. I created this video to encourage women and show that weight loss can be done with hard work, but it’s even harder work to keep it off. It’s time for a change in my life. I will always be #TeamThick, but it’s time to be a healthier me and be #FitNThick ;) Follow or Join me on my journey to reaching #HealthyCurves!

Off The Fringes.

There's something ultra-chic, but oh-so-casual about a fringed shawl. My basic black and grey look was instantly elevated by adding this super trendy piece.  It doesn't take a lot to rock this trend…which is, kind of, the beauty of it. Throw it on for instant style upgrade.

To make it work, just keep it really simple; you don't want to add too much to your look or make things too busy. So keep things slim and minimal— and let your fringe-trimmed shawl be the spotlight!

Head Poncho.

Hey loves… I just wanted to share with you some of the photos from my recent trip to New Orleans and also share with you my current obsession with this poncho! I knew that I would be traveling by foot, a lot, and was  looking for something cute yet comfy. I came across this poncho from DD’s for only $5.99 and almost passed out! I don’t know if it was on clearance or what?? But I snatched it up so quick it was ridiculous! Definitely what I was looking for…comfy yet stylish and polished.

The poncho provides perfect layering potential with a little bit of a bohemian vibe — the look is either the ideal lightweight piece on a fall day or a great layering piece when the weather calls for bundling up. Capes, fashion blankets and ponchos will definitely be on trend this fall so keep a look out!

Work Honey.


Dress: Lane Bryant via | Heels: Rainbow

Talk about an ah-mazing weekend! This weekend, I had the privilege of visiting one of my favorite cities, New Orleans, for business. This was my first time meeting some of my business associates, face-to-face, so I wanted to make sure that I was classy & professional but stylish as well. I decided to wear this beautiful black & gold @LaneBryant paisley print dress that I received from Payless4Brands.

I absolutely loved this dress because it showed my curves but wasn’t too tight or constricting. Not to mention, the quality was great. Definitely well-made and super soft. I kept everything simple and polished and  finished off the look with black pumps, geek frames and loose waves. This was an incredible experience and I will be sharing more of my personal pictures, from the trip, on my next post. What’s your go-to items for work wear?

Much love,

New New.

Not everyone could afford name brand clothing. I know, for me living in California, the cost of living could get you down in itself. So, finding cute fashionable clothes on a dime is my specialty lol. I know you ladies are always asking where I shop and get my clothing from. So, when I find out somewhere NEW I can’t wait to share! Today’s look is featuring Payless4Brands, an online store that carries name brand clothing for plus and straight sizes.  Because their items are brand-new overstock items, they carry names like Lane Bryant, Catherines, Fashion Bug, and Express at a fraction of the price.

In today’s look, I am rocking a Lane Bryant striped button-down that I received recently from the company. I decided to pair the top with my favorite skinny jeans and to add a little splash of color and contrast, I finished the look off with red Zara heels and a red thrifted clutch.  I received a few items and, honestly, they all were ah-mazing quality. I will be posting more looks over the next couple weeks featuring the items I received. I hope you liked this look and stay tuned for more!
