Christmas Dress ~ Chafing Thigh no more

Friday, December 16, 2016


Hey Curvies! I bet most of you are stressing out , juggling work/school and holiday prep all together. Shopping for gifts and Holiday party here and there. I know we all have a long list of to do's before the Christmas day comes. How about I check off an item or two  from your list. Yah?

In need of a Holiday dress? Christmas outfit or perhaps a New years eve dress. Look no further, this dress that I am featuring today is the the answer to your holiday ootd problem. Alright, can we just stare at this insanely beautiful dress. just give it a good stare! Isn't lovely? Well, it's not only a beautiful dress. It's equally great quality and intricately made. This dress has an inner cut which is the dress itself and the tulle like material as the accent outer layer where the hand sewn floral sequence is intricately made. The dress also features thin long sleeveless that goes perfect this cold holiday season. SimplyBe sure knows how to make their dresses. 




Now that I got your dress covered. How about I check off your gifting list? I'm pretty sure you have at least one or two sexy and beautiful plus size friend, right? or maybe it's you my gorgeous curvie reader. Well, a plus size body often experience chafing thighs or even a regular size women experience it as well, specially during summer time and/or when we wear dresses and skirts. 

In the past I didn't know that chafing thighs had cure or prevention meds until I found Monistat Chafing gel last year and it helped my problem a bit, my big issue with it is that I find that I always have to reapply multiple times throughout the day. That dilemma stopped when I found BANDELETTES  a pair of thigh bands to protect and provide comfort throughout the day, no more reapplying and pain. You guys it doesn't slip or slide it totally stays on the whole day. Bonus, It's super duper  affordable less that $20, you can totally buy it in every style and color. 

I for one have been struggling with chafing thighs for quite sometime now. Specially when I was still living in the Philippines, where it's always hot and humid. That's why I'm so glad that I now have Bandelettes to prevent it.

Lace Holiday Dress - SimplyBe

Tuesday, December 13, 2016



Hey Curvies! 12 more days till Christmas! YEY! Who's excited? I am. For that I have a lot of exciting Holiday outfit coming up. Next three post will feature dresses from SimplyBe. 
Starting of with this gorgeous Lace Cami Dress. You guys I'm seriously out of words for this dress! I was stunned, amazed and totally impressed with this dress. The quality is like no other, it's made from  the highest quality of lace. A crochet like lace with flower pattern. It has an inner nude layer and nude strap. The dress didn't actually come with a belt, I just added the belt/ piece of cloth to cinch in my waist. Adding in a different color belt is a great idea to add in a pop of color to the dress. This dress would go perfect on your next holiday party.

VINTED app review and haul

Monday, October 31, 2016



Hey Curvies! How are you guys? My ghad! I haven't written a blog post for so long now. I'm so sorry for the lack of posts here on my blog. 

Anyway, today's post is something that I haven't done before and I'm really excited to feature it here on my blog. 

Today I will be reviewing the shopping app VINTED. A shopping app that can you can easily SELL, BUY and SWAP old and new products. 

If you're planning to do a fall clean up or you just have a lot of clothing, make up, accessories, etc. that you're not using anymore. I do recommend that you list it on VINTED and make money out of it. You never know, some people might be looking for the items that you don't want anymore. VINTED takes 19% off of your sale which is totally not bad. They also offer different shipping cost depending on the size of the package your selling and sending out. 

As per the pros and cons. I love the VINTED app overall. It's easy to use and every step of the selling and buying process are monitored and tracked. The only bad thing that I experienced is that I unfortunately got scammed. I did a Swap without being careful. I swapped by just paying the listing fee, so when the seller that I swapped with never shipped the item. VINTED only refunded me with the costs that I payed not the whole listing fee since I'm at fault. If you plan to SWAP I do recommend that you pay and receive the same exact amount your swapping.
" Swapsursance "Message and communicate with your buyers. ( CHECK OUT MY FULL REVIEW AND HAUL OF VINTED ON MY YOUTUBE VIDEO. ) 

Here's a peek of what the crazy discounted and good deals that I scored at VINTED


100% Authentic Kylie Lipkit KOKO K

Brand New Rebecca Minkoff purse which retails for almost $300 and I got it for only $60!!!

I bundled all these goodies and got 30% off of everything and got all these for only $25!!!!

Don't miss me too much. I'm always on Instagram so do follow me there @curveella .

mix it ~ plaid and floral

Thursday, September 29, 2016


Hey Curvies! How's your Fall season going so far? As expected it is still hot here in Socal, fortunately most nights it cools down a bit. So today's post is not only a crazy mixed prints outfit but also a weather transition outfit idea. Like what I just mentioned, it is still hot and sunny from where I am but when the sun sets it gets windy and a bit chilly. So planning an outfit to wear is a total struggle.  

The plaid green tank works best during daytime. Thin, breathable and definitely flaterring on. Tank paired with denim shorts for a casual daytime look. Once the clock hits 6 o'clock transition it into a chic and statement style. As you can see I added and mixed in a lightweight floral print bomber jacket to warm up myself from the wind and wore a statement over the knee booties to spice up the whole outfit even more. Oh and the floral bomber jacket works for both male and female. I'll insert a photo of my brother/photographer wearing the same floral jacket. 

Curvies! Always play around your outfit and try different styles from time to time. Don't be afraid to mix in different prints, colors and texture in one outfit. Just make sure that you have at least one color that's matching.

Hello fall'16 ~ PHO real tho

Thursday, September 22, 2016



Hey Curvies! Happy first day of Fall 2016 loves! My favorite season of the year has finally came. Thank God no more summer, hot and sweaty weather. Well actually I'm living in Socal so it's technically I'm not feeling any fall climate just yet. But when the calendar says it's the start of fall, then I'll start my fall fashion posts as well. 

Sweater, Boots, PSL and Pho season has truly began. So I created this super duper cute fall outfit for you. The whole outfit shouts Fall in Socal to me. I'm pretty sure you guys tend to get confused about what to wear on a fall day in a bipolar weather state. So if you're like me and you can't decide what to wear in those circumstances then you better get these pieces in your closet. 



Curvies! I know you would ask me about this boots. This boots exactly is from WET SEAL PLUS I got them when they hosted a blogger preview event. Unfortunately this exact pair is not yet available on the site. I will for sure update you once it's available for purchase. 




Ok Ok! Tell me I'm not the only one who's obsessed with this pullover's PHO real embroidery. hahahaha!!! When I saw this top, I grabbed right away! I mean the color is so fall, super duper soft material and of course the humor in it.  Oh and I finally have a camp top, been searching for camo top for months now, I love how the camp color of it is not so bold, the light wash color of it sold me and the bonus patches of course.
