Wide Calf Boots Lookbook [Plus Size Fashion]

bSpecial thanks to Fashion To Figure for clothing featured & Wet Seal+ for boots featured. Photos by Da’Vi Mckay.

Raise your hand if you have giant calves and have a super hard time finding wide calf boots that actually fit WIDE calves!

*Raises both hands*

I’ve always had a terrible time trying to find boots that fit my calves. Eventually, I discovered Torrid and found that their boots can accommodate my legs pretty well. I’ve branched out a little more and started trying boots from Lane Bryant, Wet Seal+, and even some tall UGGs.

For reference, my left calf (the bigger of the two) is 18.5 inches at it’s widest point. So all of the boots below, fit at least an 18.5in calf. Many of them even had some extra wiggle room, especially on my right calf which is 17.5 inches. I do not have a wide foot, but these boots all had extra room in the foot area, as well. Some were a little loose in the ankle area, some were not, and you should be able to judge that from the pictures.

I’m thinking of doing a more comprehensive video about wide calf boots, where I actually sit down and talk about the fit of each style and what stores I think are best accommodating to wide calves. Let me know if this is something you might be interested in. :)

I hope you enjoy these looks, both the boots and the outfits. I tried to offer a nice variety of heeled, flat, leather, suede, brown, black, etc… You can wear these outfits to work, school, on a date, shopping, and just about anywhere else. Let me know which is your favorite!

This lookbook took a few hours to shoot, so you’ll notice the lighting consistently change as the sun took it’s seat for the night. I think it looks kind of cool and love how the mood of the outfits changes with the lighting behind it. Shout out to my photographer for hanging out in the bitter cold to snap these photos and the video lookbook that is at the bottom of this post.

Love It or Leave It? 2015 Kia Sorento

Love It Or Leave It 2015 Kia Sorento 4

It’s been SO long since my last car review, but I’m back! I was honestly so excited when Drive STI reached out to me about reviewing another car for them, because my ‘Bu and I have not been getting along lately. I’ve probably had to get about 7 different things fixed on my Malibu in the last two months and well… we could use some time apart.

So, a couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to test drive the 2015 Kia Sorento. When I do these Love It or Leave It posts I usually give you the good, the bad, and the whatever else. But not today. I really liked this car. So I’m just going to spoil it for you right now and say, I LOVE IT.

Of all the Kia’s that I’ve driven, this one is by far my favorite. I loved the interior, the handling, the features. It was just perfect for the munchkins and I.

Love It Or Leave It 2015 Kia Sorento 2

The interior was so sleek and totally my style. Oh, the gray Nappa leather, perfection. My favorite part of any car, is the technology, and the Kia Sorento did not disappoint. Like the other Kia’s I’ve driven, it came equipped with UVO, SiriusXM, Bluetooth, Navigation, and a bunch of other stuff I didn’t even get around to using.

Usually, the first thing I do when I get in my car is plug my phone in to charge. I work online, so my battery usually dies a few times a day. I love that when I plugged my phone in via the USB in the Sorento, it immediately started playing my music. If I didn’t plug it in, it would play it through the Bluetooth. The Infinity surround sound audio system sounds equally crisp while serenading the babies to sleep with Sam Smith’s beautiful voice and while blasting Beyonce.

Love It Or Leave It 2015 Kia Sorento 5

Speaking of the babies, they actually fit! Their giant car seats didn’t cause an issue, for once. The Sorento has third row seating, but with car seats in the second row, that’s not really something I can use or need for my little family. It’s nice to have the option, though. Nahla and Jaden were able to easily climb in and hop into their car seats without getting squished. Yay!

Also, can we talk about how amazing the selfie lighting in this truck is? It’s because of the panoramic sunroof. The kids insisted that I leave it open every time they were in the car because they like it when “the sun follows us around”. After experiencing a panoramic roof, I’m not sure I can ever go back. My measly little sunroof pales in comparison.

Love It Or Leave It 2015 Kia Sorento

Now that I’m in the market for a new car, I find myself being a lot more concerned with vehicle safety ratings than I’ve ever been in the past. I love that the Sorento has an overall 5-star safety rating. The truck is loaded with airbags and various safety systems.

The only thing that I didn’t love about the Sorento, was the MPG. It gets 18mpg in the city and 25mpg highway. Not excellent, but not all that bad considering the size of the vehicle.

A few of the other features I loved include the heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated seats, push button start with smart key, and my favorite part… the blind spot detection system. I originally thought it was going to be annoying to see a little flashing light every time a car was in my blind spot, but once I hit the tollway, it was actually pretty reassuring to have it.

Oh and did I mention it’s fast? Because it is. The 3.3L V6 engine had no problem picking up speed and the ride was so smooth that the babies couldn’t resist falling asleep every time we drove more than a few minutes.

Like I said before, when it comes to the 2015 Kia Sorento SXL… I love it and I know you will too.

 

Disclaimer: I partnered with Drive STI to test drive the Kia Sorento for 7 days in exchange for this honest review.

GRWM Day To Date Night Looks [Makeup, Hair Styles, and Outfits] #HearMyHair #shop

I’ve had a lot of people asking me to do some ‘get ready with me’ videos, so I thought I would finally give it a shot. I’ve been wanting to do some tutorials for my everyday hair styles, so this was the perfect opportunity. I’m a pretty no-fuss girl when it comes to my hair. Unless I’m doing a photoshoot, then it’s all fuss. For the most part, though, I like to keep it pretty simple.

My go-to style involves a round brush and a blow dryer. It takes me about 7 minutes from start to finish and it’s my favorite way to wear my hair. About a month ago, my blow dryer stopped blowing out hot air and I was sooo devastated.

GRWM Day To Date Night Looks [Makeup, Hair Styles, and Outfits] #HeartMyHair #shop #cbias

I love shopping. I love my hair. But I HATE shopping for new hair tools, because there are a million options. Instead of going to a beauty store, I decided to hit up Walmart to find a new blow dryer. I remembered hearing a bunch of my friends raving about some new blow dryer, I spotted it in the aisle, and decided to try it out.

It’s the new Infiniti Pro by Conair 3Q Brushless Motor Dryer and I’m super glad that I bought it. It dries my hair faster and uses less heat to do it. Plus, it looks super slick and I’m all about appearances. ;)

GRWM Day To Date Night Looks [Makeup, Hair Styles, and Outfits] #HeartMyHair #shop #cbias

I used my Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret to achieve my ‘night time’ look in this tutorial. I remember when I first bought it, like a year ago, and it seemed so daunting. It’s really easy to use though, so I became a pro in no time. It cuts down on curl time and it gives me an entirely different look than my normal curling irons. You can customize your curls with the different settings on the Curl Secret. It’ll make you say I #HeartMyHair. I even grabbed a new one and will be gifting it this holiday season. ;)

My makeup for both looks is simple and easily transitioned. I managed to only use one eye palette for both looks. Go me! I love makeup and hair that can go from day to night. It’s perfect for when you don’t want to go grocery shopping with a va-va-voom makeup look at 9am, but need a nice base for your 9pm date night look. Same goes for the hair. A quick blow out is the perfect base for any hairstyle.

New York Twist | Plus Size Fashion

Thanks to Fashion To Figure, I was able to spend last weekend in New York City and it was freaking awesome. We are working on a special little somethin’ somethin’ that I’ll talk more about later next month. Soo excited about it, can’t even lie.  Anyway, the weekend was so much fun and I got to hang out with some of my favorite bloggers while I was there like Essie, Chantè, Kelly, and Megan.

New York Twist | Plus Size Fashion

I loved being able to actually visit a brick and mortar Fashion To Figure. I tried on a bunch of outfits while I was there, and with the help of some Instagram friends, was able to pick out the perfect look for my last day in the city. If you want to see the other outfits I rocked on my trip, check out my #InstaTakeover on Fashion to Figure’s Instagram.

New York Twist | Plus Size Fashion

On my final day, we headed over to Brooklyn and had an amazing photoshoot. That place was made for photoshoots, seriously. There were a bunch of other people walking around with DSLR’s hanging from their necks. Ahhh, my people. I was lucky enough to have a super talented photographer shooting my OOTD. I apologize in advance that my future outfit pictures won’t live up to this quality. I’m devastated about this.

So, the outfit. Obviously, it’s from Fashion To Figure. I’m OBSESSED with the coat. The flare is so freaking cute and feminine. It’s the perfect length and super warm. Also, it’s like $40… sooo go buy it, seriously. They have the black one online and in-store they have a few other color options.

New York Twist | Plus Size Fashion

The jersey twist dress is to die for. The twist creates a very flattering illusion around the tummy area and does fun things to my hips. ;) You can get this in a few different colors in-store, as well. Online you can grab it in black or red. The statement necklace I’m wearing is my new favorite accessory.

New York Twist | Plus Size Fashion

New York was a blast. I vlogged the entire trip, so if you want to see what I got into, check it out below. Also, a HUGE thank you to Fashion To Figure for having me for the weekend. I cannot wait to share with you all what we have planned!

My Hair Care Routine [Getting Thicker Hair]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias

My Hair Care Routine [Getting Thicker Hair] #MoreIsBeautiful #shopI’ve lived my entire life with hair envy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty happy with the hair attached to this big ol’ head of mine… it’s longish, shiny sometimes, and usually smells pretty good, but the one area where is falls flat, is thickness. We all know that when it comes to hair #MoreIsBeautiful, right? Unless we’re talking about like leg hair, in which case… not so much.

I’ve always wanted thicker hair with tons of volume, which is part of the reason I own so many sets of hair extensions. I do love the super long mane I attain by using my clip-in hair, but I wanted a way to have fuller hair without the added trouble of using extensions.

My Hair Care Routine [Getting Thicker Hair] #MoreIsBeautiful #shop

There is a history of thinning hair in my family and the idea of my hair getting even thinner is pretty unpleasant. So, I recently started using a hair regrowth system. When I found out that Women’s Rogaine made an easy once-a-day hair foam, I knew I wanted to give it a shot.

I always thought that Rogaine was SUPER expensive and high maintenance, but it’s totally the opposite. A four month supply of Women’s Rogaine is under $50 at Walmart.

My Hair Care Routine [Getting Thicker Hair] #MoreIsBeautiful #shop

The application is really easy, too. You just release a bit of the foam into your palm and work it into your scalp at the top of your head, once a day. It takes me about a minute from start to finish. Easy peasy. 

The regrowth process can take up to 6 months, so I can’t report back on that quite yet. But once I’ve used the foam for a few more months, I’ll be sure to update you on my progress. For now, I’ll share with you my current hair care routine.

My Hair Care Routine [Getting Thicker Hair] #MoreIsBeautiful #shopI’m currently switching up my regular shampoo and conditioner because they contain keratin and I’ve noticed they are making my hair feel rough and dry. So, to fix that problem, I’ve incorporated the Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo into my routine. I use it once a week or so, and it helps get rid of any build up I might have in between washes.

I’ve also been using the Neutrogena Leave-In Treatment to help hydrate my hair and protect it from any heat that I might apply while styling. When it comes to styling me hair, I don’t use many products at all. I feel that using too many products tends to weigh down my hair and no-one wants flat hair.

My Hair Care Routine [Getting Thicker Hair] #MoreIsBeautiful #shop

That’s it! My hair care routine is super short, sweet, and as low-maintenance as possible. If you’d like to know more about my experience using Rogaine or hear more about my hair care routine, be sure to watch the video below!

November is the greatest month of the year. It’s a month full of birthdays, family, food, shopping… I can hardly take it. My birthday is in Mid-November and I AM SO DAMN EXCITED. I don’t have anything planned. I don’t have any awesome gifts coming my way. I’m losing my insurance. I’m getting older.

But WHO CARES? The last year of my life has been insane. I mean, insanely awesome. I can’t believe the opportunities I’ve gotten and the people I’ve met. Reflecting on these last twelve months brings a huge smile to my face. I am happy. Like obnoxiously happy about my life. :)

This month will be filled with the most beautiful of fashions. I know about 10 people with birthdays this month and that means I have a bunch of reasons to get dressed up and look cute. I’m also heading to NYC this week, and get to hang around other adults. ADULTS! People that don’t need me to wipe their butts. What a magical time this will be haha. But more on that later…

Now that the weather has dramatically chilled and the trees have lost their leaves, I thought it was time to let my burgundy obsession rise again. I have SO many clothes, accessories, and shoes in burgundy and I have no shame. Don’t be surprised if the next 10 outfit of the days include my favorite fall shade.

The Leopard Lookbook | Plus Size Fashion |

Who doesn’t love a little leopard print? Growing up, I always shied away from wearing loud prints because I didn’t want to draw too much attention to myself. But now, guuuurl. Feel free to stop and stare. There seem to be so many rules that plus size women are expected to abide by, but I’m not having that.

I don’t think there is a right and wrong way to do fashion. Everything may not be your style, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fabulous all the same. This is my take on the ever popular animal print trend. Almost everything pictured is from Fashion To Figure (shocking, I know). I absolutely love Fashion To Figure and their clothing just fits me sooo well. If you live on the east coast, you should definitely try them out.

Don’t forget, if you have any particular styles you’d like to see in the next lookbook, let me know in the comments or tweet me @RavingsByRae! On to the lookbook!

Halloween Makeup Tutorials with Neutrogena [Witch & Mermaid] #NeutrogenaFaceOff #ad

I’ve been so excited about Halloween this year. After helping the babies pick out their costumes, and working on my set of costumes, I’m actually pretty hyped up for the big day. Earlier this week, I released a Halloween Costume Lookbook, and I had a lot of requests to do some accompanying makeup tutorials. I’m going to show you my Witch and Mermaid makeup tutorials with a little help from my Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes.

My favorite method of removing my makeup is definitely wipes. I’ve been using the Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes since I started wearing makeup. I’ve tried just about every makeup wipe I could get my hands on, and I’ve always come right back to my Neutrogena.

Halloween Makeup Tutorials with Neutrogena [Witch & Mermaid] #NeutrogenaFaceOff #ad 5

No matter how much makeup I have on my face, I never need to use more than one wipe and they’re super inexpensive. The 25 towelette refill pack is under $5 at Walmart. Holler holler money dollar. ;) Just about all of my skincare routine involves using Neutrogena products. They’re perfect for my skin. No matter how much I rub my eyes to get off that lash glue and waterproof mascara, they never ever get irritated with the Cleansing Towelettes. It’s witchcraft.

Halloween-Makeup-Tutorials-with-Neutrogena-Witch-Mermaid #NeutrogenaFaceOff #ad

Speaking of witchcraft, my witch costume was definitely a fan favorite. I had a ton of requests to show off how to achieve the sinister look, and it’s surprisingly simple. I basically just used the Lorac Pro 2 eye shadow palette and some dark liner. As much as I love the palette, the shadows produced a TON of fallout while doing this look, so you’ll definitely want some makeup wipes on hand for clean up.

Halloween Makeup Tutorials with Neutrogena [Witch & Mermaid] #NeutrogenaFaceOff #ad 2

In the video below, I show you two complete makeup looks with a little help of a Neutrogena Cleansing Towelette in between. I love that it only takes one wipe to get my makeup off. Ain’t nobody got time for scrubbing.

If you’re planning on going all out with your makeup this Halloween, be sure to join in on the #NeutrogenaFaceOff challenge and show off how you use your Cleansing Towelettes!

Halloween Costume Lookbook 2014 | Plus Size Fashion |

Halloween is readily approaching and for once, I’m dressing up. I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in over 10 years. So, this year, I decided to go all out. I know it can be hard to find a halloween costume that 1. Fits, 2. Is High Quality, and 3. Looks Ahhmazing. Well… challenge accepted.

I have created a plus size Halloween Costume Lookbook with some AMAZING looks. I teamed up with Hips & Curves to showcase some of their beautiful costumes. I have NEVER had such high quality costumes. Many of the pieces can transition from Halloween to sexy time in the bedroom, so there’s that little perk. ;)

Everything fit me perfectly. The sizing charts on the website are so incredibly helpful. After a few minutes with my tape measure, I was able to select the exact sizes I needed. If you like the looks, I highly suggest you check out Hips & Curves. Plus they have a bunch of their Halloween goodies on sale now!

Easy Princess Bubble Braid Hair Tutorial [Video]

This post is written in collaboration with Johnson’s No More Tangles. All opinions are my own.

Easy Princess Bubble Braid Hair Tutorial

Halloween is in two weeks and my kids are flipping out with excitement. I drew a giant pumpkin on our calendar so that they could count down the days until the Ultimate Candy Fest. This year, I decided to be prepared instead of scouring the racks at Target looking for ANYTHING in their sizes on October 30th.

I bought the kids their Halloween costumes and while picking out their accessories I noticed that Nahla’s had an accompanying wig, but I knew she wouldn’t wear it and didn’t want to waste the money. So instead of buying the wig, I created a super easy princess bubble braid hair tutorial that anyone can do.

Easy Princess Bubble Braid Hair Tutorial 7

It’s no secret that I’m horrible at doing hair. I thought it would be easier to do my children’s hair than it is to do my own, but no. I was wrong. It doesn’t help that Nahla and Jaden both have super thick and curly hair, something I’m wasn’t used to at all. I’ve had stick straight hair f o r e v e r. I need a bottle of hairspray and a miracle to keep curls in this hair of mine, but not my munchkins.

EasEasy Princess Bubble Braid Hair Tutorial #NoMoreTangles

A few months ago we started a new hair care regimen for them and it’s still working perfectly for us.

1. We start by using the Baby Shampoo & Conditioner for thick and curly hair in the shower. It helps loosen some of their knots and makes their hair smell awesome.

2. After the shower, I run a quarter size amount of the No More Tangles Leave In Conditioner through their still wet hair to nourish and help maintain frizz.

3. We finish with the No More Tangles Detangling Spray. It helps to unlock stubborn knots in wet or dry hair. The spray makes styling much easier.

I use a detangling brush to comb through their thick hair and we manage to do all of this with no tears. Yay, for happy kiddies!

Easy Princess Bubble Braid Hair Tutorial #NoMoreTangles

I’m a big fan of the #NoMoreTangles line and it has made managing my kids’ hair MUCH easier. This bubble braid was the perfect complementing hairstyle of Nahla’s princess costume. She seriously wouldn’t stop talking about how cute she looked in her bubble braid. She loved it. I loved it. You’ll love it. ;)

If you’d like to see how to create a super easy bubble braid for the little princess in your life, watch the video tutorial below!
