6 Plus Denim Jackets You Need from Target This Fall.

I’m forever browsing on Target.com because… it’s Target! Plus, usually, whatever I need, I get it from Target.

Lately, I’ve been planning ahead for the fall and winter months to come. Since I live in Northeast Ohio, you can never be too prepared for the coldest months of the year. If you live in the mid-west and northeastern states, you know exactly what I mean.

I’m currently on the hunt for coats, jackets, jeans, leggings, and everything that can layer to keep this cold body warm. Although I love fall and winter, I’m not built for the winter, I get cold easily. Especially since I rely heavily on public transportation, I can’t be caught outside when the weather decides it wants to shift suddenly.

Denim jackets are the perfect thing to help layer every casual outfit. From light to dark wash, you can combine looks effortlessly. Every item mentioned here goes up to a size 3X or 4x. Did I mention that every jacket is under $40? Welp, they are!

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


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 😛


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!

First, Mask It!

Acure Organics Pore Clarifying Red Clay Mask

Second, Scrub It!

Acure Organics
Brightening Facial Scrub

Third, Tone It!

Acure Organics Facial Toner, Rose + Red Tea

Fourth, Moisturize It!

Acure Organics
Night Cream

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.

Self-Care Saturday Journal: Unlearning How to Hate Me.

“I want to unlearn how to hate me.”

A sentence from one of my letters to God.

I wanted to take just a moment to express thoughts and feelings about how I have fallen into the trap of hating myself. It’s a trap that was set many years ago and we fall into it usually at a very young age. I know that I have.

That trap that’s been set to line the pockets of corporations who would benefit from many of God’s children to hate all that is themselves and all that is God. It’s also a trap set by the enemy in an attempt to get us to fall and deny God.

We really shouldn’t hate ourselves, but I have moments when I have caught me saying terrible things to myself or about myself. I’m sure that I’m not alone. So, my questions are…

What do you do when you realized you’ve been trained to be your own poison?

What do you do when you think of punishing yourself with cruelty?

What do you do when life seems the most hopeless? 

What do you do when you can’t seem to escape the thoughts that buzz loudly like a trapped housefly in an empty room with no windows?
