Hey there! I am a midsize gal, living in the midwest.

I'm originally from the Sunshine State and moved to the Land of 10,000 Lakes with my family about 8 years ago.

We are loving the change in seasons and I love that I get a new wardrobe about every time the season changes! I like to buy things on sale but I also like a good quality piece of clothing.

For reference, I am a size 8-10 in jeans, 32H bra size. I weigh 165 pounds, and I'm 5'6" tall.

Amazon Haul for June 2021

By Brandy | June 1, 2021

I was recently inspired to purchase some things from Amazon to style up my summer. As a not-so-small woman, I find myself drawn to things that accentuate my waist since it’s the smallest part of me. But I also love showing off my cleavage. It’s a pretty nice cleavage to show off, but it also…

Get Ready for Summer 2021

By Brandy | May 6, 2021

I recently did a little online shopping to get myself ready for an epic family-filled summer. We are fully vaccinated up in here and ready to spend time with family and friends doing fun summer things! In anticipation of that, I have purchased a couple of dresses, a new bralette, and some swimsuits (my current…

Bra Review: SheFit

By Brandy | April 28, 2021

If you’re like me, you’ve seen the ads for SheFit in your newsfeed. It follows me around the internet so I figured I’d give it a go. Watching the videos, it looked like this would be a good bra for doing my HIIT and I thought if it’s comfy enough I could wear it for…

Setting and Maintaining Boundaries

By Brandy | March 2, 2021

Once upon a time, I was a kid who was strong-willed and bull-headed, two adjectives that were used to describe me frequently. In my parent/teacher conferences, they were told I was talkative and bossy. What can I say? I knew what I and everyone else around me should have been doing and I wasn’t afraid…

Empowering Women is Unnecessary

By Brandy | February 24, 2021

Redundancy. So many books, blogs, songs, poems, etc are written about “empowering women” and “women’s empowerment” and I just think that’s a bunch of bullshit. I wish we would quit using the phrase “empowered woman”. Change that to Powerful Woman. Or Woman with Power. empower: em-pow-er verb. to give (someone) the authority or power to…

Looking Forward & Making Changes

By Brandy | December 24, 2020

In the last couple weeks of December, I usually start a list of the things I’d like to focus on in the coming year. Not a resolution list, per se, just things to keep in mind as I’m going about my daily life. Health is always on my mind. I am going to focus more…

2020 Wasn’t So Bad

By Brandy | December 17, 2020

I realize I’m speaking from my privileged place when I say that. For a lot of us, it was the absolute worst year in a very long time. Our country saw riots, protests, more racial injustice and unrest, bad cops murdering innocent people, a weird-ass election cycle, division like we’ve not seen in decades, income…

Dealing With Stress & Anxiety During a Pandemic

By Brandy | April 2, 2020

I am a stressed out momma of two. One teenager with special needs. One pre-teen girl who is completely neurotypical and has such a big heart. My family has been in quarantine since March 13th when the kids came home from school for spring break. We decided to isolate then since we’re moving and we…

My Super Awesome Playlist

By Brandy | March 4, 2020

I recently posted a playlist I found on Pinterest for a happy/pick-me-up kinda day and I wanted to create my own to share with you guys. These are the songs that if they come on I can’t help singing along with – no matter where I am. Target, drs. office, car, whatever. Music is one…

What’s Your TRUE JOY?

By Brandy | February 25, 2020

Rachel Hollis challenged the world recently to make a Joy List. So I thought I would put into blog format just what my top 10 (and a bonus!) joy list is. It is in no particular order. These are the things that spark TRUE JOY in my life. Catching my husband’s eye across the room…
