TBGB News: CeCe’s in Plus Model Magazine January 2013

Happy New Year, Lovelies! 2013 has started off with something super fun. I’m featured in this months issue of Plus Model Magazine! PMM asked five bloggers to share their fall/winter style… mine was color. This was also one of the last photo shoots I did with my natural hair out of braids, I had just gotten a cut/flat iron. I’m so happy with how healthy it is right now. Coincidentally, as you flip through this months issue, you’ll notice that the Rachel Pally dress I’m wearing is featured in another spread worn by the fabulous +size model, Marquita Pring. At first I kind of panicked at the idea of being compared to a +size model in the same dress, but…

TBGB News: CeCe’s Walking in the BlogHer ’12 Fashion Show & Style Spotlight

Hey Lovelies, I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I’ve been asked to walk in a fashion show during the BlogHer ’12 conference next week. I’m so excited… I’m so SCARED! This event has been pretty hush, hush but last night I got permission to share the info with my Plus Size Princesses. The bloggers that they’ve asked to do it are all phenomenal women, so I’m honored to be in such good company. The show will feature selections from 6pm.com and Elizabeth Arden will be taking care of our faces. Most importantly, we will be styled by the ever so fabulous Kathryn Finney! A full write up of the fashion show can be found here.…

A Quick Note….

Happy Friday! I’m not quite sure how to say this, so I’ll just start: I’ve been getting a lot of emails and comments about the content of TBGB. Some people want to hear more about my general life in New York City, some people only want to see posts about being a big girl. Some people are nice, some not so nice. You all know so much about me from this blog, but there’s a lot that I haven’t shared… I would like to share more of myself with you because you all share so much with me in your comments, tweets and emails. Yes, I am a Plus Size Princess, but I also live in New York City (the…

Radio Interview… Tonight!

Happy Wednesday! I just wanted to give you all a heads up that I’ll be doing a radio interview tonight at 9pm EST on The Single Edition Radio Show! I’ve never done anything like this before, so if you’re interested in being a part of our conversation (or if you just want to hear my voice :-)) you should tune in. This is an online radio broadcast, so you can listen from anywhere in the world! The theme for the evening is “Loving Yourself” and I’m pretty flattered that they’d consider me a good person to discuss that topic. I plan on multitasking for this, so I will be tweeting during the show (follow me on twitter @thebiggirlblog). See you tonight!…

TheBigGirlBlog Website Relaunch!

Welcome to TheBigGirlBlog’s new site! This site is designed by the fabulous Liz Burr, my favorite “girl about the internet”. Collaborating with her on a new design was a great experience and I hope that what we’ve come up with makes your time on this site more enjoyable. I should warn you that we’re still getting some of the “bugs” worked out, so please excuse anything that isnt working 100%. We should have it all cleared up this week. (If you notice any bugs, feel free to email me/leave a comment 🙂 TBGB’s look is different but, the content will remain the same. I’ve got more dating, fashion and fitness stories. I’m hoping we can pick back up with “Curvy Conversations”…

TBGB News: Website Changes

Hello Lovelies, I was talking to some bloggers the other day and one of them mentioned to me that I should think of my blog as a home where people come to visit. I loved that analogy, until I realized that my “home” was a mess could really use some renovations! So, I’ve been working towards redesigning TBGB and its almost finished. Soon when you come here, things will have a whole new look. Hopefully its something you all will like. Of course, my writing will stay the same and I’ll continue to share my stories as they happen to me but it will just happen on a prettier site! I just wanted to give you all a heads up…
