Rockin' Your Curvy Figure! HuffPost Live~ Full Figure Fashionista

I had to share this fashion segment for curvy ladies! Why? Because media mostly ignores us!

Let's start with the bra! For many busty ladies we know we should have supportive bras but for years they didn't look pretty but more like a piece of armor! And how often should you get measured and replace your bras?

Maybe your question is about how to adapt clothing trends to your curves. (that's been my issue for years) Or my question: what fashions should I now chose without looking frumpy or too young?

I actually never considered myself a fashionista. I've tried to select clothes that are comfortable and stylish. Many times I failed! But as I get ready to celebrate my 51st birthday next week I realized it's time to take another look at my wardrobe.

HuffPost Live recently did a segment titled "Full Figured Fashionistas". The guest included 2 female full figured fashion bloggers, a spokesperson from Linda the Bra Lady and a HuffPost Live fashion commenter.

I'll point out some of the highlights: Get yourself professionally sized for a bra, wear a supportive bra, replace your bra every 6-9 months, there's more bra choices for curvy ladies and one can take a trend, revamp it for the curvy lady!

Whoo! Now that's a lot to take in so let's check out the show! And make notes!


Great post! My formerly flat, underweight, Twiggy daughter is really excited that she has put on curves. Not everyone wants to be a rail! Love who God made you!

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
