Hi everybody. Seems like Sean P and I can never quite sit still … this time we’re going really far. We’re moving to Singapore in August. Never fear, we will return to Raleigh at some point in the future (we are keeping our house), but we’ll be in Singapore for at least a year. So starts an adventure of epic proportions! Not to say that no one else has come before us. Did you know that Singapore is home to more than 39% ex-pats? This should prove to be an awesome experience with many ups and downs, but I wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else in the world other than Mr. P.
Our good friend Patrice, who you may or may not know (but should get to know if you don’t because she’s wet your panties funny) from Hell & Heartaches, made the very good suggestion that Sean and I definitely have to blog about this. While we may not have all the time in the world for long form blogging and pictures … we can totally achieve some video blogs on the subject. With that, I give you our first, poor quality webcam video uploaded directly to YouTube from our hotel room at Wilmington, NC on the subject of moving to Singapore.
raise your hand if you’ve shopped at eloquii. i went to a holiday event sponsored by the plus size brand that’s made by the limited last year, and i was sort of into the pieces that they had. i understood that it was likely they would have things in the future that i would really be into. then, tuxedo-style pants with a pinstripe down the side started to hit stores, and i also really liked the look of longer sweaters, but neither of those things was being done particularly well in plus size. then, eloquii had a HUGE, hyuh-uge sale around black friday / cyber monday. so i decided it was time to take the plunge and order some THANGS at a big discount. (check their website for current codes to get discounts as high as 60% off some items!) this is the story of what i ordered – what worked, what didn’t, and what i hope for the future at eloquii by the limited. read more Eloquii Plus Size Fashion Review and Haul
I had the pleasure of being invited and attending the Plus Model Magazine event that showcased Mynt 1792 on Friday evening here in the city. They showcased some of the updates to the line since Full Figured Fashion Week. I remember seeing the Mynt 1792 line during Full Figured Fashion Week and thinking to myself, “Ummmm. Where’s the rest?” They showed mostly jeans and t-shirts with some other items sprinkled in. I wasn’t really very impressed. I’m glad I went to this showcase, however, because they’ve been doing some additions, and the line has been rounded out a bit. Click “Read More” to see the video and hear my commentary! I also interviewed popular plus size faces like Marie Denee from The Curvy Fashionista and Asia Monet, the newest face of Ashley Stewart to find out what they were wearing! read more Mynt 1792 at the Plus Model Magazine Showcase
