I had a little Maurice’s adventure this past weekend, I pulled one of my usual “I will wear this out” stunts and from there the day just got better and better. My husband and I were on a road trip to a wedding(I wore that amazing CB dress) and we decided to stop and do some shopping around. I picked up this fun top in the 24/7 fabric and I went back last night and got 3 more tops lol.
We shopped and then went to lunch, where I promptly had two margaritas before we shot this look…oops It was a blast, and I have just loved this fabric all week. I am sure you will be seeing more of this on the blog.
One year ago today I started Curls and Contours. I can not believe how much I have grown in one year, as a person and as a blogger. My confidence in myself has never been better, I have found that letting go of constantly trying to improve myself according to what other people think has allowed me the freedom to just like me for me. This year has not been the easiest, I struggled and had to face some personal demons that I didn’t know ran so deep within me. I stood up for myself, and I worked to overcome some long standing personal pain from years of self hatred fueled by unachievable goals and a childhood dominated by dieting and viewing myself as not good enough. I can’t say that I am over it yet, I can’t say that I will ever be truly over it. But I wouldn’t have gotten through all of that without my blog, and the community of people that I have found through blogging.
I got right with the fact that I got a degree, and then changed my mind after all was said and done. I have reached for happiness this past year, and while I think I will always be reaching I can say that I am a hell of a lot closer than I was when I started this blog. I am not perfect, and I never will be. My husband and I are working as a couple to envision a future where we have everything we want. I am working to free myself of the pressures that I feel in life, from the outside and from within. My blog has helped me to do just that.
Thank you so much for following along, or if you are here for the first time welcome. This is a blog for the curvy girl that wants it all. Thats me and its you too!
