NETFLIX MOVIE: MURDER MYSTERY
I love clothing, and I really wish I had more of it. But, style has become really important to me. However, a lot of people donât understand that some traditional style suggestions might not work well for plus size ladies in particular.
I want to make it clear that I believe anyone should be able to wear whatever they want! These are just suggestions to make your photos look better and to make your other friends envious of your style. PLEASE also know that I am not an expert, but a plus-size gal with 25 years of experience in a plus-size body!
So, here are a few tips:
1: OPT FOR VERTICAL STRIPES
2: THINK BIG WITH ACCESSORIES (FOR THE MOST PART)
3: PLAY WITH PRINTS
4: DRESS FOR YOUR BODY SHAPE
I believe that I have more of an apple figure, as I carry most of my weight in my midsection. I love dresses that taper just under the bust and flare out. This, for my body type, draws attention away from my midsection!
I really liked this blog that explains body shape. Scroll down, click the shapes, read the description, and find which shape you believe fits you best: http://www.thechicfashionista.com/body-shapes.html

6 WAYS TO CELEBRATE ON FATHER'S DAY IF YOU DON'T HAVE A FATHER TO CELEBRATERead Now
There are without a doubt millions of people who will be going into this weekend without a father or grandfather to celebrate. Because my father isn’t in my life anymore (by my own choice), and because my grandpa recently passed away this year, I am now one of those millions who may feel a little off this Father’s Day.
I do have an awesome father-in-law and grandfather-in-law to celebrate, and I suppose my brother and husband are both fathers to furry little friends. However, I know this is an issue that many deal with.
Today, I’ll be giving suggestions on how you can enjoy this holiday even if your father isn’t in the picture, or if you’ve lost the loved ones you would traditionally celebrate. Keep reading for more:
HONOR A FATHER FIGURE
Take them out to lunch, buy them coffee, or send them a special card. Do something to celebrate them and thank them for being a father to the fatherless.
CELEBRATE THE LIVES OF FATHERS/GRANDFATHERS YOU HAVE LOST
ENGAGE YOUR SPIRITUAL SIDE
Religious spirituality might not be for you, but perhaps simply meditating and focusing on the intricacy of life and of yourself will help you engage your spiritual side. This can help you forget about the worries and anxieties that you associate with Father’s Day.
INTERVIEW YOUR PARTNER IF YOU ARE CHILDLESS
Ask your partner what they would want to teach your child or what they think is the most important thing they learned from their father. The answers will not only help you learn even more about your partner, but will also help you understand what they’ll be like as a father!
GO SEE A MOVIE
These include the new Spider-Man movie, Men in Black: International, Dark Phoenix, Aladdin, Ma, and so many more.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SALES
Good Housekeeping has actually gathered a list of sales happening at some of your favorite stores, both online and in person!

"KILL THIS LOVE" BY BLACKPINK
If you're looking for a new song to jam out to, I recommend "Kill This Love" by Blackpink. This is a K-POP girl group, so parts of the song are in Korean. However, most videos you watch will have subtitles available in English. This song is so fierce and features my favorite from the group, Lisa.
