My challenge for this weekend..

(*singing*) FRIENDSSSS! How many of us have them? lol... Well? I used to haha.. no really. I never realized how friggin hard it is to meet people as an adult. Children become best friends in like an hour... not so much like that anymore. Now that I live in a state where I can count on one hand how many people I socialize with, my life has become a bit BLAH! I am sooo over it! Im tired of waiting around to see if someone has off so we can go out, or if they even want to go out. NO MORE. This weekend I am challenging myself to go hang out at a bar all ALONE!! Ahhhh lol. I know a lot of people do it, but I have yet to do it. I need to meet more people, men and women. So we shall see how this turns out! lol Have any of you done this before? Tips? Please?!!?!?

Weight loss

I haven't really said anything on the blog but for those who communicate with me on fb,twitter, and IG know that I've been trying to get a little more in shape. I do not have a weight goal, my goal has just been to stay active, eat a little healthier and loose my belly a bit. I will forever be a plus size women and I am ok with that. That is who I am, so I am no way SHAPE or form trying to change that. I have been very active working out and its paying off! I am down 15lbs since the beginning of September!

My workout routine usually consists of:

45min on the elliptical
25 squats
3 sets of 5 kick backs
70 Crunches (with feet up or on the wall)
5 girl push ups
Taking a 3+mile walk about once a week (which I haven't done in about 2 weeks)
Yesterday I switched to:
Every other day:
30mins on ellipitcal ( adding more resistance and moving faster)
15 mins on tredmill of 3 min walking followed by 1 min of jogging and repeating for 15 mins
50 squats a day (25 in am and 25 at night)
100 crunches a day (50 in am and 50 at night)
10 girl push ups a day

All dressed up, no where to go :(

Good evening loves! Once again I know I have been so slack with updating pictures... but I have and idea that will probably make me blog more :)... anywho.. lets get to the fit. The other night my cousin and I were supposed to go out buuut she ditched me last min. One of my girlfriends text and invited me to dinner so I was like heck yea. I got all dressed (running late as usual) text my friends my "omw" text and come to find out she was making dinner plans for the following night lol. SOOOO I was all dressed up and no where to go. Unfortunately I was unable to wear this outfit out but I felt soo fricking sexy in it I just had to take pics! btw.. I had to add my gel inserts in these pumps.. trust I would NOT wear these to party unless it was a lounge or something of the type.. these are "get out of the car and sit yo tail down" shoes lol

Another DIY!

Hey pretty ladies! I have been such a slacker when it comes to blogging. Most of my interaction with readers has been through FB and instagram. It has been much easier to post and converse with ladies that are interested in plus size fashion, so if your on Follow me at Fat Girl fresh and same for fb. Now enough with that.. on to my ootn/diy project. This skirt I thrifted a while back and was actually one of my first thrifted items since I started. I really like it  before I cut it but it was a weird length for me. Not all the way to the floor but not quite mid length, but I held on to it, I mean it was $2.50 for Pete's sake. And I'm glad I did. My cousins and I went to a reggae club last night and I felt like this was  a perfect outfit, really comfy and simple... and easy to make!

Me vs Me

Good afternoon Loves! Today I sat down at my computer and was about to order my dress for my birthday (August 14th) from Asos and had a great idea! First let me rewind... a few weeks ago on my FB page I posted pics of a few dresses from different sites to get every one's opinion as to which one I should order. Now that I am actually thinking about it, I may not have time to wait for a dress to come in the mail... and hate praying that it fits the way I need it to. This is where the light bulb goes off... The whole point of Fat Girl Fresh was to challenge myself to dress better with what I have or find pieces that are at an affordable price. So what better idea then to create something amazing for my bday. I mean how much creativity am I using by buying something that is already put together? Wish me luck Dolls! :)

Apples and Pears..

Good afternoon loves! If you follow me on facebook you would remember one of my readers that I met up with on 4th of July Ms. Alexa! She is actually becoming a good friend. But any who, she invited me out to a charity dinner, then to a nice Lounge for live music. It was an interesting night to say the least lol. Alexa recently lost 85lbs and is getting her swirl back, she looked amazing in her dress! I decided to go all black, I've been wanting to try all black for sometime and just never got to it. I had to of course match my earrings with my toesies lol. I was playing around with lip liners and lipsticks and came up with this "Plum Purple" color by using my NYX Electric Blue lip liner, and my Black Radiance #5003 lip stick. Its sorta like a magenta pink. Oh and my photographer has been fired! He's always MIA when I need him lol, so sorry for only one outfit pic, in the dark.

Faux reptile print Tube top- Dots (super old)
Leggings- Rainbow
Black Platform Sandal- Rainbow
Earrings- Charlotte Russe

Can ya guess who is the pear and who is the apple?? lol

Confession* When Im bored I play dress up!

Outfit Rewind..

Hey Loves! Really quick I wanted to show you guys an outfit that was worn before and how I switched it up to fit summer and give a slightly different feel to it. Outfit seen here.

Yea I think I'm the sh*t because I got this smokey eye thing down!! lol
*Accessories are so important, yes these are very simple looks but as you can see they can be switched up just by accessorizing*

Fall 2012 Fashion Trends...

As I swiftly move through this fashion journey of mine, I'm realizing I don't really like trends or care to follow them. But it is nice to know whats considered "in" during any given season. Summer is going by so fast and this is a good time to start building your fall wardrobe or start deciding what you want to start bringing to the front of your closet. According to Marie Claire these are the trends for Fall 2012:

Black & Blue
Reptile Print
Winter White (yes even after Labor Day)

So I must say I like them except for the whole burgundy thing.. Not too sure how I feel about that one lol. 

                                                            Stay Confident and Beautiful xoxo

My weekend -Instagram

I had an awesome chill weekend. Relaxed at home, packed some more, went thrifting and went to a couple bars. Thrifting was great! I managed to get a camo Jacket, some fabric for a skirt I'm making, a purse and some jeans.  The jeans I purchased were a bit small for me ( can't button them lol), but I will still cut, stud and distress them and post them to see if anyone is interested in them, they may fit a size 18/20. This weekend I kinda just went with the fun playful look. That's been my mood lately, not sure if its because I've  been on vacation from work or I'm really starting to let loose. For those who don't know, yes I am a stress box and this whole fashion thing has really allowed me to loosen up! So here a few pics from my Instagram this weekend. If your on IG check me out Fat Girl Fresh :)

Hippie Dreams

Good Morning ladies! It's been like forever since I did an outfit post, I feel. I'm in the process of moving so my motivation has been a little slack lately. This outfit was kind of a hippie inspired look that I've been wanting to try (sometimes I feel like I could have been a hippie in my previous life lol). Any who the shorts I made are from an old, old pair of jeans I got from DOTS like 3-4yrs ago, crop top is from Charlotte Russe (size XL) which brings up an important point... When shopping try to keep an open mind and go in EVERY store even if they don't have plus size, or may even be a men's store.. my point is you just never know what you may find or fit. DIY turban made from my favorite scarf seen here and here. I also tried pin curling my hair and um as you can see that was a complete #fail.. but if at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again, and that's what I did.. lol Day 2 was alot better! Hope you ladies enjoy the rest of your week :)

What curls??
