Try Chicwe For Plus Size Women's Clothing

Being a plus size woman, I'm always looking for clothes that not only fit my body type well and are comfortable to wear but are stylish also. Sadly, sometimes that is a challenge.
Chicwe has 15+ years of expertise in plus size fashion and sells plus size women's clothing, from casual to formal, such as dresses, tops and blouses, skirts, pants, and more. Whatever your body type, Chicwe is all about woman showing their curves in style. Their clothing is not only stylish and comfortable but affordable as well. 


I was given the opportunity to review a top from Chicwe and I chose to review the Women's Plus Size Floral Lace Up Tunic Top. This lace up, deep V neck, 3/4 sleeves top is made of 95% polyester and 5% elastane. It's super soft and very comfortable and the fabric feels similar to that of a swimsuit. The fabric also seems to be very breathable. I most usually wear a size 2X in tops so that's what I went with and the 2X fit me perfectly everywhere and wasn't too tight or too loose. I have a rather large bust so I was relieved when this top fit well in that area. I also carry a lot of my weight in my stomach and this top also wasn't too tight in that area. It also wasn't too tight around the arms. It's very hard for me to find stylish tops that fit right in all three of these places but this top absolutely did. I wear this top casually with carpis or Bermuda shorts and sandals or flip flops but it could also be worn with khakis or other dressier pants and heels or other dressier shoes.  

This top is also very affordable and I'd love to see it in different patterns and colors.

Add Some Pizazz to Your Walls With Wallsauce


My son and his girlfriend recently moved into a cute little house on the corner of our street but once inside they found that the carpet and walls were both very outdated. I don't think the walls had been updated since probably the very early 1990s and were covered with old wood paneling and floral wallpaper. Being Generation Z, my son and his girlfriend just couldn't live in this home with boring, outdated walls so they painstakingly primed and painted each room to better fit their personalities. Had I known about Wallsauce at that time, I could have saved them both a lot of time and effort, and their walls would look amazing right about now.

To The Three Types of Dads in My Life on Father's Day


My dad has always been the strong silent type. He didn't have to tell me that he loved me for me to know that he did. He worked hard to help provide a home, food, and other necessities for my mom, brother, and me and that's how I know he loved me. Sometimes he would work outside most of the daylight hours in the hot sun on top of an even hotter rooftop getting dehydrated and sunburned and other days he would lay underneath an unruly car for hours on end only to get covered in grease, dirt, and grime. His callused hands and grease under his fingernails are proof of all of his hard work.  


For some reason, I didn't pick a man as great as my dad to be the father to my own child. I had my son when I was just 15 years old and his biological dad was 17. He hasn't seen him since he was 2 years old (he's now 18) and didn't do much up to that point anyway besides point his finger at me and somehow blame me for his deadbeat ways. He's gone on to have four other kids by two different women. He hasn't been that great of a dad to those kids either but he has at least been a part of their lives to some extent when he hasn't been in jail or prison. In addition to not knowing his biological father and siblings, my son has another set of grandparents, an aunt, uncle, and multiple cousins who know very little about him and the wonderful young man he has become, no thanks to any of them.  


Luckily, I did happen to find a great man much like my dad when my son was 13 months old and this man has raised him just like his own child ever since. He's been there with me every step of the way, through potty training, homework and school projects, school plays, baseball and football games, teaching him to drive a car, doctor visits, birthdays, holidays, etc. He has been the man who has provided for my son emotionally and financially. He was the one who my son threw a baseball with, who took him fishing, out for ice cream, and on many memorable family vacations. He was there with me 4 hours away from home when my son's football team won the state championship and then met him at the home football field after 1 o'clock in the morning to celebrate when he got off the bus and he was there graduation day to watch him get his much deserved diploma. He's been there to fix his boo boos, work on his cars, and whatever else he has ever needed help with...without hesitation.

So to my dad on Father's Day, thank you for always being there to provide for your family and instilling in me a great work ethic. Thank you for also being an awesome grandpa to my son.

To my son's deadbeat dad, thank you for giving me the greatest part of my life and in some ways thank you for not being there because I truly believe my son is a better man for it. 

And to my partner in crime for the last 17 years, thank you for always being there not only for me, but for my son as well and showing him what a father should be like. 

When You Become An Empty Nester, Make A Home Office!

My boyfriend and I recently became empty nesters when our youngest kid graduated high school and moved into his own place. It's been a very bittersweet experience for me, bitter because it's the end of one chapter but sweet because it's the start of a new one. We've already designated his old room as a guest bedroom and our oldest kids old room is now a home office for me, well about half of it anyway. The other half will be used for storing random stuff (for now). I remember when we first moved in and hardly had anything, a neighbor told us that before too long we'd have so much stuff that our house would be cluttered and boy was she right! We're now slowly working on de-cluttering though. Anyway, my new office is still a work in progress but it's just the space I needed for my second job as a work from home medical transcriptionist.
