Things I Liked – spending time on YouTube!

OOOh yes ! it’s warm & adorable, we can stop wearing coats & start dreaming about summer dresses & no tights …so? where were we?

♥ have you seen this week’s Top Post on Tumblr? oh my goodness. So adorable! I’m really into Disney (always) & Disney princesses – but I truly love them more when they look real…! I recently started a new board to collect all Disney-related-alternative posts…I think it’s much more fun than sticking to classic!

♥ so, talking about Pinterest, right? here’s the most RePinned Pin of the week! yesss …yellow is my spring/summer colour, yes it is. The sun, the sunflowers, lemonade, sand, the heart of daisies…there’s so much bright yellow & gold in these seasons, don’t you think?

♥ oh, & do you wanna know what I spent much of my time on, this week? Youtube! yep. Well, I love Youtube, I follow a lot of channels & I like to go through them every now & then (remember, I told you about my Ellen DeGeneres obsession..? I watch all her show’s episodes online!). & here’s what I most recently found for you: Fat Girls & Leggings – an exhilarating video…make sure you watch it & not stop at the beginning, it’s super inspiring & funny. Best Dresses for Your Body Type – interesting, even tho the girl in the video could wear basically anything on earth; but she gives some good advice. How to Dress Yourself Skinny – same as above: skinny girl giving advice…but some of them are really good: remember, we’re not size-racist!

Things I Liked – spring wishes.

You Are Gorgeous.
No matter what – what society says, what other people say, what the TV makes you believe – you are gorgeous to me.
I want to write this down because of many reasons: I receive messages on Tumblr, where I get thanked because I offer inspiration & plus size role models to girls who don’t have any; I read about girls who don’t know how to love themselves, or where to start; I am myself constantly looking for my self-esteem.
Of course, I am not perfect, nor the most self confident person in this world: but I’m trying really hard, & that’s why my web spaces exist. I want to share my journey, my research, my inspiration & my findings …with you.
Because You Are Special. To Me.
You read me, comment me, follow me, pin my pins, re-blog my posts.
You look for inspiration, research to find self confidence, want to see more outfits that may look good on you.
You are like me. I am like you.
& I love you, as much as I’m trying to love myself.

♥ well, well, well … I have added enough sugar to this Friday, I think! weren’t we talking about Tumblr? then let’s talk about it seriously – with this week’s Top Post! I think my fellow tumblers must be missing hot weather, like me (at the moment, I’m seriously shivering; & it’s about to rain – told you!) ‘cause look at what they mostly favored this week …

♥ & let’s not forget about my beloved Pinterest! what’s this week’s Top Pin? rise & shine, & get ready to go out ! this pin makes me feel like that, I swear. & it also has a certain Great Gatsby touch…I think it’s the headband. Anyway, the entire outfit (it’s Macy’s, btw) is totally special … I wonder if I would rock such a dress & where & when … but then I think: who cares? it’s too pretty to miss!

♥ all this (bathing suits & shiny things & so on) makes me think about spring more & more …so I want to share two pretty spring-y videos I just watched: DIY Minnie Mouse Ears (pink & sparkles time!) & Spring Favourites both by the super-cutie Charisma Star. There’s nothing better than surround yourself with sequins, pastel & florals to get you in a spring mood…& I just can’t wait for it to happen!

♥ & then there’s me …grey frills (thrift shop skirt! lucky find), my all time fave galaxy leggings (ebay!), & a little teal + floral ! (Bonprix & lace-up boots by Manhattan, for these last days of rain). The pictures are not exactly good; but well, I hope you won’t mind!

Things I Liked – i giorni della merla

Hello friends & folks, & welcome to the days formerly called “giorni della merla“! the last days of January (the coldest days of the year, they say) are so-called because of a legend: back in the days, a female blackbird (merla) sheltered her chicks & herself into a chimney, to hide from the extreme cold…they say blackbirds were white back then…but when they came out, in spring, they had become all black because of the soot. & here’s the story, why blackbirds are black & these days…I’m totally freezing my booty!
( PS. does any of you remember that cheerleading movie…? that’s the song I keep repeating myself lately, ahah)

So my friends, it’s about time for another ” best of the week “ !
What have you been up to?
I’ve been planning (evil planning? ahaha no don’t worry) or at least trying …we’ll seen how it gets!

♥ I’m gonna start with the Top Post of the week, on Tumblr! which is always a good idea. Oh, I love my followers! in this cold weather, they manage to bring back up a post from April…& a summery sailor dress! so cute, but seriously..? are you guys already planning summer vacation? oh my gosh, I wish I could too! meanwhile, I’ll just take long dreamy looks to this outfit.

♥ & how about the Most RePinned Pin on Curvy is The Way? there she is ! Eli, from Barcelona…I’m telling you, she’s got great style! very fashionable, with a little extra touch. I love this outfit: versatile, so you wear it for a casual work day or to go out; classic, but with a twist, given by the leopard print of the shoes. Still, it’s a spring look … I get it now: all my followers are dead tired of winter & the’re all starting dreaming about spring wardrobe! I’m with you darlings!!

speaking of Pinterest & spring looks…I have a crush con pastel colors, you know? & it’s getting worst, ahah! I recently got 2 pairs of pastel skinny jeans (coral/pink & mint – like the ones you see here – adorable) & I never have enough of inspirational pictures in all those cute little soft colours … so here, have a selection of pastel love, just for you!

I also have to say, I’m pretty proud of this post I made, Shop With Me. I tried to be as exhaustive as I could…& I think I made it! of course, I’m open to any comment & request. & speaking of requests…I am fully available to help you with your Outfit Requests ! remember !

♥ This week …I’m totally loving burgundy – another one of my winter’s signature colours! burgundy & white is my fave match, above all others; I can’t remeber if you’ve already seen me wearing this dress; it’s really soft cotton, & the colour is lovely, but the elastic part around the waist makes it a little weird-looking on me. Anyway, since I’m never discouraged after the first attempt, I noticed that wearing a blazer on top (& I have the best one, from LIST! same exact colour!) makes everything looks nicer …ow, & yeah, I’m sorry about the white shirt underneath – it doesn’t look classy to me either, but it’s freezing cold & I have no intention whatsoever to catch the flu just to look perfect. whatevs.
