CHALLENGE 

So I have gone on Challenge overload. So many out there and here are a few I am doing or thinking about doing.
~30 Squats Challenge I will post the pic to see how this challenge goes. I want to drop another 30lbs before the end of the year. I am trying to getting fiancé to join me, so we can both get healthier.

~The Year Long Make Your Wardrobe
This is one I am thinking about. Basically you sew for a year and not buy any clothes. I will decide tomorrow if I will do that one.

***UPDATE****

I am going to do the Year long sewing challenge….. woohoo… here is a link to the blog for that Challenge….

Those are the new ones I have taken on. I am already doing the Pretty Girls Rock dresses Challenge. So far I suck at this lol it has been cold here do wearing a dress is not really feasible, and most of my dresses are way too big due yo the weight loss.

So my fellow Curvy Girls are you doing any Challenges?
Let me know

So I figured why not I clicked that I would join in.  It is from March 1, 2013 to June 30, 2013…. I think this is a great and amazing Challenge…. I wish I had thought of it lol 
Now my plan was to start this March 1 but i was set back after coming back into town with the flu that has lingered and it is still cold here in Maryland and I am on the bus…. 
But now that I feel better I plan to jump in head first to this Challenge…. I will rock a dress to work but the cute shoes will be hard I work in retail my shoes are ugly but comfy… but I will find a way around that 🙂
So my Divas do you want to join me in this Challenge? C’mon it will be fun….
I can’t wait to see what you all wear….

LBD Sew-A-Long 

I got a bit done today, even though all I wanted to do was sleep.  I am almost done with the jacket I need to add some kind of closure piece, I am debating on a black frog or a snap….humm maybe a ribbon.. who knows

I also started the dress the actual LBD of the sew-a-long.  I have it completed except for hemming it.  Now the LBD is a bit snug but that’s ok *it has to be ok because I am not about to let it out*  I will put on my body magic and call it a day lol 

I can’t wait to put the pieces together with the jewelry I made.
