Rose Garden

April 20, 2016








As I mentioned in my last post, my husband and I bought our first home recently. Last week began the start of the renovation of two bathrooms, new windows and doors, painting… The list goes on. It’s quite a feat also having a baby while getting it all done.  (Luckily, we do have a contractor helping us out — no way are we the renovating type!)


Right about now, our two bathrooms are gutted and ready for a clean slate. For some of my house renovating inspirations, check out my Pinterest (Bathroom, Living Room, Master Bedroom, and Kitchen boards).

Curvy Elle Lately

April 6, 2016

Today I was thinking about the fact that next month will be The Curvy Elle’s fourth anniversary. It’s really crazy to think about how my life has changed since then. At the time, I was living in New York City, working at a job I didn’t care for, and doing my “dream job.”


Now, I’m living back in California, I’m married, and have a five month old baby girl. I knew back then, that I wanted to get married, have a family, etc. — but it was in the abstract. It’s both wonderful and crazy that it now has come to fruition.  Four years ago, I had a dream of starting The Curvy Elle — and I did it! And even before that, I had a dream to one day have a family — and, now, I’m doing it!


It’s really proves that you never know what will happen with your life in a years time…


Here is a little update on things going on with The Curvy Elle and me  lately. (For more, follow me on Instagram!)





1.  It was 90 degrees out today. Here is a selfie of Lorelai and I taking in some fresh air in our backyard (of our old house).

2.  My husband and I are home owners! We purchased this cute little house in March and are excited to get it fixed up, so we can move in!




3.  A beautiful old vintage chandelier that was left in the garage of our new house by the previous owner. I really want to clean it up and try to use it somewhere in the house.

4.  Lately, I’ve been trying to make a point of getting out of my yoga pants and leggings, and put on some real clothes (a difficult feat with a baby!). I’ve been trying to document this on Instagram with OOTD posts.




5.  A picture from a photo shoot for The Curvy Elle Shop I did recently (and when I say “recently,” it means since I gave birth! haha). I love the light from this unedited shot.

6.  Baby wearing in Target! Plus size women can baby wear too! Find what works for you, your body, and your baby. I own 4 different types and interchange them periodically.
