I’ll be the first to admit that organization doesn’t come naturally to me. My natural tendency is to leave things a bit messy and chaotic. I definitely don’t WANT that to be the case and am making an effort to get organized and stay that way.
We went from having a one bedroom apartment on the beach in New York to a four bedroom house with a full basement in Kentucky. I thought it would take us YEARS to even fill the house with furniture but we managed to accumulate a lot of stuff very quickly.
Before we dive into today’s post, I want to announce something exciting… I launched a YouTube Channel! It won’t be replacing the blog but will be a supplement allowing us to dive a bit deeper into the things we’re chatting about here! Plus size fashion, home decor/DIY, travel, and lifestyle!
In the future, many of my blog posts will ALSO feature video content! In today’s blog post I’m sharing five tips for an organized closet and if you scroll ALL the way to the end of the post, I’ve embedded my latest YouTube video which is a tour of my own closet!
I follow a lot of thin “lifestyle influencers” on Instagram and YouTube, and I always notice they wear the most luxurious, beautiful pajama sets. Unfortunately, I can’t wear the ones they recommend because they don’t come in plus sizes but I always LOVE the way they look.
For months, I searched high and low for classic pajama sets that are available in plus sizes. I found several cute options but ultimately landed on an incredible set from WomanWithin.com that are available in sizes 14-40!
I started my blog at the end of March in 2018. It has been quite the whirlwind, and I’ve loved EVERY minute of connecting with you here. What started as a creative outlet is turning into a platform that allows me to connect with women throughout the world who are share similar interests.
It’s by far one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done, and I’m SOOO happy you’re here with me. It’s been quite the learning experience figuring out what you like and what resonates, so I thought it would be fun to share the posts that were the most read on The Plus Life in 2018.
I love hearing from you and some of the best content I’ve created has stemmed from the questions you ask me on a daily basis. Please chime in with a comment below… what would be your top three topics you’d like to see covered on The Plus Life in 2019? I’m working on my 2019 content calendar now, so your best ideas will be included!
Y’all, the holiday season is the best! There are parties, family time, and pretty much all of my favorite things. After December 25th, though, I’m usually done with winter and just want to cozy up at home with Kevin and my dog as much as possible.
I know I’m not alone in this sentiment, so I think the perfect holiday gift is one that brings comfort for the remaining winter months. If you’re like me and enjoy a cozy night in, you might want to consider these gift ideas as “treat yourself” ideas instead.
If you’re shopping for your favorite homebody, he or she will thank you for any of these gifts under the tree this year!
Did you catch the announcement that The Plus Life will be participating in BLOGMAS by providing a TON of awesome holiday-inspired content throughout the month of December? Well, it’s true… and here we are again for part two in the series!
Check out the first post here to read about 15 awesome holiday traditions you could start this year!
Today’s post is the next in the Blogmas series, and it’s been extra fun to prepare for you! I have a few special gift guides coming your way as part of the series, but I thought it would be fun to start with a roundup of the exact items I PERSONALLY would love to receive this year for Christmas. I don’t currently own any of the items on this list but they’re all things I’ve been considering purchasing or hinting about to my family.
Real talk, this is a LONG list. I have absolutely zero expectation of receiving all or even most of these items. I’ll narrow this down to a few of the things I want the most and share it with the people who’ll be shopping for me. Hi, Mom! Hi, Kevin!
You know what is completely overwhelming? Hosting a major holiday for the first time. Kevin and I are traveling to New York to spend Thanksgiving with his family this year, but I’m planning on hosting a Thanksgiving meal for some of my family in Kentucky on another day.
We are so excited to finally have space for entertaining, but given that we haven’t been able to in the past… we are definitely lacking in some of the basics we need for hosting.
If you’re like us and plan to host a holiday meal for the first time this year, check out my tips and tricks below. I’ve done all the overanalyzing so that you don’t have to! Haha.

I’ve got an Amazon problem, y’all! I LOVE it. I have to say, I’ve gotten way better about my little habit, but July was definitely a little Amazon shopping heavy.
When we were in our apartment in NY, a neighbor once questioned me about what in the world we were buying to have packages arrive every day. Oops! I’m not proud of it, but it is what it is I guess. There was no Target nearby so what was a girl to do?

I had planned on sharing a different post today but am switching things up a bit! I recently tried Blue Apron for the first time, and as part of my subscription I had three free boxes I could share with friends. I decided to offer them up to my Instagram friends (follow me here if you don’t already!)
I had probably 30 of you DM me within the first 5-10 minutes of posting the IG story asking for the free box. First of all, you ladies really ARE my tribe…. y’all love free stuff as much as I do and I love it! Second, I was bummed I couldn’t share more with you because everyone was so excited to try it.
