Asos Curve Bralette & Wide Fit Leather Sneakers. Curvy•Minimalist•Essentials

Yo!

I’ve finally shopped at Asos! I’ve ordered just a couple things, but I am excited to show you what I have.

ASOS.com USA

First, let me tell you that shopping with Asos was a breeze. It was super easy for me to find what I needed. Asos has six drop-down menus to help everyone shop by ascending or descending price, size, product type, brand, color, and price range. And since ya girl is size 16 minimalist on a budget, this made shopping more easy and enjoyable.

These items were previously featured in my Asos + Boohoo Curve & Plus Mini-Haul w/ Try-On! (Video) Curvy•Minimalist•Essentials.

The ASOS CURVE Supportive Textured Bralette:
Although I am a busty woman, I’ve been wanting to give bralettes a try. I am on the search for comfort in 2018 and one of the best ways to find comfort is wearing comfortable foundations.

Bralette
ASOS CURVE Supportive Textured Bralette – Front

ASOS CURVE Supportive Textured Bralette – Back

This bralette is very comfortable. It’s stretchy but very supportive. The straps are adjustable and they didn’t dig into my shoulders. It’s easy to wash and it doesn’t change shape after washing. Except, the straps were a bit twisted once they were done. Those were easy to fix though.

The bra was a little loose in the band (the part that goes around the ribs). I kinda feel like I should have ordered a size down. However, that may come in smaller cups and I need the cups to stay the size they are.

Beware, throughout the day you may develop uni-boob. The bra doesn’t keep the breasts separated. They will be lifted, though.

I ordered this in a size 14/ 16 and I paid $26 for it.
The New Look Wide Fit Slip-On Leather Look Sneaker:

Black Leather Sneakers.jpg
New Look Wide Fit Slip-On Leather Look Sneaker

These shoes are super comfortable. I had just enough space for my toes. My big toes were rubbing against the shoe as if I needed a half size up.

However, I had so much room that the shoes felt loose around my arches and my heals. At first, I thought that would be a problem when I walk. It turns out that it’s not. I went for a walk in these shoes with no socks on and they did not flop off my feet like I thought they would.

So, if your feet are really wide and chubby, these shoes are very nice. If you want to wear these shoes with socks, I’d recommend that thin ankle socks be worn with these. Again, these are kinda narrow in the toes. Therefore, I’d avoid thick socks.

I ordered these in a size 11 wide fit and I paid $26 for them.

Black Wednesday! With Adorned By Chi. Mini-Haul. Curvy•Minimalist•Essentials

Hey!

I have a mini haul for you! I finally purchased some things that I’ve always wanted and NEEDED. These items are from a black-owned small business by a young lady who is just the cutest! Like, I wish she was my little sister kind of cute.

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, standing

But… I’m the baby! LOL 😛

#Spoiled

This shirt caught my eye on Instagram months ago on the Adorned By Chi’s Instagram page and I just about lost it!

Why did I lose it?

*Note: I’m going to type with a lot of exclamation marks because I am too excited about this shirt and the fact that this is my first fashion haul for you all.
**Another Note: This post is NOT sponsored. Carry on!

Because I LOVE Wednesday Addams and someone made her just as black as me! I remember watching the Addams Family movie when I was a young girl. I was immediately drawn to the darkness of Wednesday Addams (Christina Ricci) and the grace and poise of Morticia Addams (Anjelica Huston).

addams family values wednesday addams gif

To me, Wednesday Addams was one of the most relatable girls I’ve ever seen on tv and in movies. I used to get annoyed to see children super happy and precocious on tv and in movies. All the while, I was this realist black girl who always saw the world for what it was, including the dark parts.

So, I had to get the tee and the cup to match my forever-mood with my forever-skin. Black on the inside and out. No! I don’t actually hate everything. I hate all the things that I get quickly annoyed with… which is almost everything.

The Items!

The “I Hate Everything” Wednesday shirt is a comfy cotton tee. It’s one of the softest tee shirts I own now. Which falls in line with her theme of being a soft black girl. The color print on the shirt is well applied. The print is not too thick that you can’t fold it any way that you like.

The shirt comes in unisex sizes. So, since I am a solid size 16/ XL I went a size lower to a size large to have more of a fitted look. However, I have fatter upper arms and the sleeves are a smidge too tight but not tight enough to restrict movement. See photos below.

Her tees go up to a size 4 XL! So, anyone can wear her tees and look super cute.

The “One Wednesdays We Stay Black” mug explains Wednesday and my self the best. We stay black. Our ways can be “too black” to most, but we know who we are and we are okay with who we are.

I have the 11 oz mug. The paint on the mug is strong and has yet to scratch and chip. It’s been in the dishwasher several times already. I don’t have a microwave to test it out with heating. So, I don’t know how it does when it comes to heating up water for tea. *Keep reading to find out how you can win one of these mugs.

This is the cutest mug I have ever bought myself yet.

A 3 Step Guide to a New Year's Eve Night In. Curvy•Minimalist•Essentials

Hey! Happy Holidays!

New years eve is approaching swiftly and we need something to wear.

Not going out? Me either. I’m staying in.

I’m not really a party person. A party involves being around people you will grow tired of quickly. It involves getting dressed up to be cute, but quickly become uncomfortable after one hour when there are 3 hours left until the countdown.

So, like a true minimalist, I stay home and watch New Year’s Rockin Eve with my husband and son. That’s all I need…well sorta.

New Year’s Eve is a great time to get comfortable, eat snacks, and have a relaxing time.

Benefit Cosmetics LLC

If you don’t know where to start, let me help you. Friend to friend, sister to sister here’s my step by step guide to a New Years Eve Night In featuring items from Simply Be, Asos Curve, and Thrive Market.

Step Two: Facial Detox.

Now that you are in your nice comfy, cozy or sexy pajamas, it’s time to detox the skin and go into the new year with a glow.

I’ve always been a fan of using scrubs to exfoliate and reveal new skin and making clay masks to detox my skin.

If you’re not a DIYs person, I personally recommend these products by Acure Organics. I’ve tried other products from other brands, but no one really does it for me like Acure. Yes, I’m brand loyal. Just sayin! Not sponsored, though!

Step Three: Snack It, Snack It, Snack It, Snack It!

Do I really need to explain why snacks are essential? Nawl! But I’ve tried every single one of these products and they a delicious must have! They non-GMO, fair trade, and just better alternatives to typical snacks. All of these can be found on ThriveMarket.com and on your first three orders you can get 20% off. A gift from me to you.

3 Casual Winter Looks with Asos Curve: Curvy•Minimalist•Essentials.

Hey! Welcome! How’s it goin?

This is my first post in a new series for curvy minimalist essentials from my favorite brands. I have so many favorites that if I could buy from them all, I would. However, my bank account doesn’t match my dreams right now, but they will one day. So, until it does, I have created a series featuring all the things I wish I could buy. Consider this my wishlist/lookbook… A WishBook! Links are included for easy shopping.

Asos Winter Essentials 17 Feat Image

If you’re like me, you might be a minimalist. We happen to like more solid colors, simple cuts, and simple pieces of jewelry. We also are good for having a few pieces we like to wear often and put together with other pieces. Many of us tend to be laid back and don’t care for anything that is contrary to our personality. Whether we realize it or not, if it contradicts who we are it makes look and feel weighed down.

So, I’ve taken the time to find these oh-so-cute casual items to help you shop for winter essentials from Asos Curve & Plus Size. Here are three looks with ten items you can mix and match. All of the items are for us curvy bodies and wide feet.
