Guess Who’s Back…

It’s me!

Welcome to the NEW CurvesAndCoffee.com!

First things first…sorry it took so long (insert all the techie, blogger headache, internet issues here). I won’t bore you guys with every trouble shooting thing I went through over the past month because it was A LOT! Totally worth the troubles.

So, what’s new?


— layout


–site host

–blogging platform

I’ll probably experiment with colors and design a few more times (a girl can never be satisfied as the cliche goes…I just like to keep things fresh and new)

You can expect the same type of writing and posts that you love so no worries there.

OH! Before I forget…

HAPPY 2 Year Blogaversary to ME!!

Cleaning Out The Curves And Coffee Closet

If you’ve visited in the last week or so, you’ll notice something different…….

I MOVED! Yay! (hopefully I’ll be physically moving to a new place soon as well!)

So, Curves And Coffee has made the leap to totally renovate, clean out, and pretty up the place. Over the next couple of weeks, there will be a few more changes but nothing major *fingers crossed*…I’m still moving boxes (posts) to the new digs so it could be just a couple broken links…if you happen to come across one, just email-tweet-Facebook me and I’ll be sure to get right on it! I didn’t want to leave you guys with the “under construction” sign so this is why we’re going live!

H U G E thanks to Georgia over at Godaddy for helping me through this process!  so she’s been a big help!

Pardon the dust and stay tuned for more of what you love!



Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself…

Hey there stylish sweets!


It’s been a very long and stressful month and I’m finally getting back into the swing of things. Firstly, I’d like to thank you guys for being such great supporters during this heart-breaking time. Losing my grandfather has been the hardest thing for me to go through next to losing my grandmother five years earlier. I needed to step away from the blog and the fashion world while I focused on family and finding the lighter side of things.


Finally the fog has lifted and I’m able to focus on you guys. Sure there will be plenty of moments when my mood isn’t the greatest but that’s to be expected (as you can read….writing is also quite therapeutic for me) but I’m gonna try to give my all. Thanks again for the hugs, kisses, condolences, prayers, and well wishes throughout this time.


It truly means a lot.


With that said…


I’m back!


Stay tuned for your fave curvy girl posts about shopping, fashion, and even a few guest posters! Fashion month begins, it’s Super Bowl Sunday, the 2014 tennis season has started up, and the winter olympics….sheesh! I didn’t return a moment too soon!

Morning Linkage: Cup 34

Guess who’s baaaack?!


It’s me!


Good morning stylish sweets!



Sorry I’ve been away. My GrandPaPa is in the hospital and still recovering. I have to be on call and available 24 hours a day…imagine that stress for a person that barely gets sleep in the first place. So needless to say, I had to take a quick break from everything and just try my best to relax. It’s been a hard and long moment in time but I think I’m finally adjusting to the circumstances put in front of me. With that said, I’m going to try my best to start posting regularly again. Thanks for being patient and sending all of your good vibes my way 🙂



So, now that you guys are updated, let’s jump back into the swing of things, shall we?!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month



What It Is:


Every year, I look forward to this month for this exact reason. Even though, we’re able to fight for a cure throughout the year, October serves as a time when brands, professional sports, and many more acknowledge the fight. There are tons of ways to help fight for a cure and throughout the month of October, I will share the many ways I find.



Why It Means So Much:


Four years ago, I lost my grandmother to breast cancer. She fought for an incredible 20+ years after her initial diagnosis. As a survivor and a fighter, she made sure I understood the cause even as a kid. So today, I strive to make sure the world knows how important it is to find a cure. This is probably why I love the color pink so much now! My grandmother is also the same woman who made sure I was an oddball for life by making me left-handed…soooo I’m pretty sure she forced pink on me too 🙂



How To Fight:


The easiest way to protect yourself is to check yourself! FEEL YOUR BOOBIES! Ladies, it can’t be any easier than that! In the shower or laying in the bed, softly grab those boobs of yours and caress them like no on has ever caressed them before!









Fight on!
