Endings or Beginnings?

All you need to do is type in “Things to do before summer ends” and you will get a list of at least 10 things to do in your area.

Redefining the “Range”

Tough women, whether it’s Army Rangers or home on the rangers, women need clothes as tough and as functional as they are. Yet, so many of us wear leggings all the time, which is probably why fullbeauty has almost 200 styles and colors of leggings...

New Way of Thinking?

Sure, I have loose pants and tees with no bra days and I’m really comfortable. But, there is nothing to show how comfortable I am in my own skin that a curvy-hugging pants and top.

Are we still in Middle School?

I was listening to a report on the news discussing how plus size women are begging Victoria’s Secret to feature plus size models and to size up. Really? Have we still not discovered that the ‘cool kids’ are their own priorities and we deserve companies who make us the priority, not the afterthought?

IGIGI…A fullbeauty FAVE

What makes IGIGI so fabulous? Maybe it’s because, as the testimonials confirm, they are as important to a 16 year old thankful for the perfect prom dress as to a 70 year old widow who wore an IGIGI dress to a fundraiser and felt ‘spectacular’.
Summer Leisure

Summer Leisure

We’d like to think the concept of summer and leisure is redundant but, for the majority of us, summer is business as usual with warmer weather and maybe a few extra days off. And we make all these promises to ourselves, but then it just feels too hot to do much of anything. Start by actually committing to doing what you feel like doing and put the clothes out the night before. Suggestions?
What Do You Think?

What Do You Think?

Other than blogging, my passion is doing fullbeauty magazine and our second issue just went up online at It is 88 pages of gorgeous clothes and relevant information, but your opinion is more important than mine. So a favor…will you look at it and let me know what you think?


Bonjour! Yes, you're in the right place and I am so excited to be blogging from Paris. My sister-in-law and I decided to cash in points and got our flights and our hotel for free...okay, $90 in taxes but that's as close to free as Paris could possibly get. Shopping? While I did go a little crazy on handbags and jewelry, I do miss a country where the clothes actually fit me. Most stores carry up to a size 44, which is a size 12 on a good day. None of the shoes came in wider widths. I did not purchase one piece of clothing...not one! When I get back, I can buy some Taillissime so I can get the clothes to match the bags.

May Day

With a tradition that dates back centuries, May Day was originally about celebrating spring with dancing, singing and eating cake -- now that's my idea of a celebration! Brought to America by early settlers, May Day has been everything from workers’ day to just watching flowers pop up.
