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.
Fashion is a lot like people...each brand has its own personality. One brand that is quickly becoming a fast friend to both me and fullbeauty.com is City Chic. "Born" in Australia with a clear mission to provide the quintessential shopping experience, City Chic created a design collection with a "unique to chic" fit, fabric and print mix, quickly growing from 6 to over 100 stores across Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and America. As a leading global plus size fashion, denim, dress and lingerie retailer, City Chic likes to say it is for 'Confidently Curvy' girls with a "Passion for Fashion."
Last night was the launch party for fullbeauty.com and fullbeauty magazine, and over 300 of the coolest bloggers, models and people passionate about plus size fashion got together with the queen of confidence, Meghan Trainor, performing two of her songs, including “All About That Bass”.

I made a little spring shopping list and just ordered what I need to get ready when the real spring finally shows up.

Ask a woman what she wants to buy, and she’ll generally answer a blue sweater, a black skirt, a red jacket. That’s why we have a shop by color capability, but it’s especially valuable this time of year when our purchases are more targeted by occasion.
The holidays, and especially New Year’s, is the time when we get to go Hollywood, be Pretty Woman and ditch the sweats and parka for some real glam and glitz.
