Target Tuesday!



This is my first post for Target Tuesday. Today is about amazing things that are great for plus size women too. I am a big girl and I love to giving suggestions for fashion to ordinary plus size women! I hope you enjoy my finds. 


Mossimo® Women's One Piece Polka-Dot Swimdress - Teal/White

My thoughts on clothing is not to hide yourself. It is to stand out in all the right ways. This bathing suit is a nice pop of color, but still covers everything that it needs too. Also it is totally cute!

Merona® Women's One Shoulder Shirred One Piece Swimsuit - Purple



 I also love this one! It has a nice funky twist to it with the one shoulder and the ruching technique also helps to hide the belly and may make you feel more comfortable. Comfortable can equal Confidence. 


Women's Xhilaration® Tallis Wedge Espadrilles - Natural

I loves wedges! They are so much easier to walk in and still you can feel sexy in a heel!



Women's Xhilaration® Tempie Crochet Wedge Sandals - Natural



 Crochet is also another accent I adore!

Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Crochet V-Neck Top - Sour Cream


Flowing tops w/ mild cleavage are also another staple every plus size girl must have. It is another way to show some sass!



Merona® Women's Bermuda Short (Fit 1) - Erie Canal



 Bermuda shorts are amazing. You can still show some leg without showing to much. These are appropriate almost everywhere and a spring and summer must have. 

The point is not to hide, but to embrace your big girl! Love yourself for who you are and wear everything w/ confidence and a smile!

I think I needed to remind myself these today:

I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken -- and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.- Margaret Mitchell

There are reasons we met, reasons for the good and the bad times, and more importantly, a reason to an end. We have more to learn, more to experience, and more loving left in this lifetime.

I had a rough morning, but I am about to start getting ready for some family fun to get my mind of the pain. I had actually been doing really well with this whole situation, but every past decision still has consequences a person may have to face. I have learned a valuable lesson and hope my choices have not set someone I do love and care about back from moving on. I also hope I can forgive myself and continue to move forward has well.

A Good Place To Start....

So, an amazing friend, who shall remain nameless, inspired me to start this blog. I am not really sure what I hope to achieve, but I imagine this will be fun. I guess over the course of time you will see my challenges, success stories, and random things I find interesting.

My name is Cari and I am 21. I work full time @ Geico. I am single and enjoying the freedom. I have been spending my time figuring out what I want in life. It is an everyday challenge I continue to work on. I have figured out a few things: before I leave Mommy and Daddy's house again, I want to save a nice cushion of money. Then I my goal is to live ONE YEAR at least by myself. I want to know that I can depend on myself.

Right now one of the biggest things I am working on is getting into shape.. I started The South Beach Diet last Sunday(6 lbs down so far), but I am looking for some ideas on workout routines. If you have any suggestions let me know.

Some things I am looking forward to this year:
Turning 22
Getting off certification in July(work)
Going back to school for a degree in business(hopefully in August)
My baby bother is marrying one of my closest friends in October
