Last year was the first time I really got into holiday themed clothing, but now I can’t get enough. On Valentine’s Day, Kevin and I tend to prefer a cozy night in and cooking a nice dinner instead of going out on the town. We like avoiding the crowds and overpriced “special” menus. This means that for Valentine’s Day, I’m normally on the lookout for cute, casual outfit options instead of the usual little red dress!
Plus size brands have launched a lot of super cute V-day inspired options this year, and I was feeling them so much I had to round them up for you.
Hello, my friend! I’m coming to you today with some VERY exciting news. Well, it’s exciting for me at least… and I HOPE it’s exciting for you too!
If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll likely know that I’m a huge sucker for a good deal! Frugality is a big part of my own life. I hate wasting money and am not a big fan of paying full price for anything. I’m constantly searching for sales and feel such a sense of accomplishment when I find great clothes at great prices.
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!
Thank you to Lane Bryant for sponsoring this post! Integrity means everything to me, so I never promote products I don’t use and love personally. I have been a Lane Bryant shopper for over a decade, and it is a pleasure to partner with the brand to share their Black Friday weekend deals with you. You can read my full disclosure here.
There are two things you should know about me if you don’t already:
I love Lane Bryant and I love a bargain.
I know that many of you share these sentiments, so I am thrilled to partner with Lane Bryant to tell you about the Daily Doorbuster Deals being offered in store and online November 21 – 26!

My recent post about wide and extra wide width sneakers was by far the most widely discussed post I’ve ever written. I’ve since had countless conversations with many of you discussing the challenges we all seem to face in finding the perfect shoe. The STRUGGLE is real, y’all!
I’ve always had a tough time finding cute and comfortable shoes due to my wide feet and occasional swelling, but I didn’t realize so many of you were struggling too. Because of this, I have decided to write a series of posts about different types of shoes and where to find great options.

Not sure about you, but I LOVE a good subscription service! I’ve tried them for clothing, jewelry, makeup, groceries, and pretty much anything else I can find.
It is SO exciting to get new goodies delivered to your door – such a special treat!
Just when I thought I’d tried (and loved) every type of subscription service out there, I discovered Panty Drop, a subscription service for panties. First, how AWESOME is “Panty Drop” as a business name for a panty subscription service? SERIOUSLY! Branding genius. I knew I wanted in based on the name alone!
If you follow me on social media (oh, hi! Instagram, here. Facebook, here) you likely already know that last night I partnered with the team at Draper James’ Lexington store to host a Shop & Sip event for a charity in my hometown.
I am overjoyed with the way the event turned out and wanted to capture it for you with a quick post here.
People often speak negatively about growing up in a small town, but I have to say…. you really just can’t beat the love and support of a community like the one I came from.

I’ve got a secret…..
For years, I’ve been a double bra wearer. That’s right…. when I exercise, I wear a sports bra with a regular underwire bra underneath.
I’m not particularly busty, but I still prefer additional support that most sports bras just don’t provide. Regular sports bras typically either smash my “girls” flat or don’t provide enough support to control the bounce when I work out.
I’ve always HATED that when I use my “double bra method” you can see both sets of straps under tank tops. I’ve also hated getting my favorite bras sweaty and gross requiring me to wash them after each wear, causing them to wear out quickly.
