Wednesday Wants: Favorite Colors Edition

I love color… bright colors… pastel colors… dull colors… I love them ALL! But this edition of Wednesday Wants didn’t start out as a post about three of my favorite colors.

Confused? I’ll try to fill you in and make this a short story um if I can haha.

Ready? Ok!

So this originally started as a Valentine’s Day/date night/just relaxing at home outfit ideas post (yes, practically a month ago ๐Ÿ™„)

BUT the night I was finishing up, Comcast/Xfinity decided to do “updates in the area” and I lost internet for 14 hours (I despise them btw)! Then when I tried to salvage the post the next day, the fan on my laptop went haywire, THEN when I tried to finish via my phone, the formatting was off and messed up the previous work that was completed! So needless to say, trying to complete this post has been one frustrating ass journey.

Started from the bottom now we here!

If anything that looks off or weird, me and usually my perfectionism are sorry.


Let’s do this!



Starting with PINK! Yes, it’s a fave. This tomboyish, sports loving, car know-it-all LOVES pink! I don’t wear it often but know I always have something pink with me.


1.Halo Heels – $100 – Dolce Vita

2. Bryant Blazer – $89.95 – Lane Bryant

3. The Hulet Bag – $495 – Kamilah Willacy

4. Checker Sidewall Slip On – $55 – Vans



Next, BLACK. It goes with any and everything. Can be dressed up or down. Wear it sexy or with jeans and sneakers. It’s black.

1. V-neck Dress – $49.50 – Ashley Stewart

2. Scotch Boots – $300 – Dolce Vita

3. Layden Floral Bag – $398 – Kate Spade

4. Lace Up Top – $59.50 – Eloquii



Lastly, WHITE. Just like the color black, it goes with everything!

1. Tie Top – $62.90 – Eloquii

2. Darla Embellished Sneakers – $72 – ASOS

3. Fendi Scallop Bag – $2,350 – Fendi

4. Fit & Flare Dress – $48 – Forever21



We made it to the end!! That was fun right?!

Those were 12 items currently on my wishlist in pink, black, and white! Feel free to get your shop on and drop me a line if you’ve found something you like!

Gifts For Your Guy

It’s that time of year again! Time for packing the shopping malls in search of the perfect gift for that perfect guy. Easier said than done of course. Well, I’m always here to help you with your shopping trip. Today, is a special feature for a great site called GroovyGuyGifts.com and yes, they’re really GREAT gifts!


Below is just ONE of their great gifts:



Perfect Strangers (Engraved Shot Glass & Multi-tool Knife Set)

This is the perfect gift for the guy who probably already has everything. With this personalized touch, he’ll be glad to show this off to everyone! The set features a shot glass and your choice of a knife or multi-tool that comes in a keepsake wooden box. All of which can be engraved.

I personally, opted to receive the shot glass and multi-tool not engraved, only because I was unsure of what to put on it. (Of course, totally regretting it now…just means I need to make a purchase for myself in the coming months.) 

Speaking of other items, Groovy Guy Gifts has lots of cool items and great groomsmen gifts for those in wedding planning mode.

This wooden bottle opener can be engraved for everyone in your crew! Find it here: Snap A Cap



Full disclosure: I was given the opportunity to pick an item from the site, have it engraved and sent to me. 

Sophia Webster x Puma

If you aren’t fast enough, you’ll miss it! And missed it I did. 

One of my faves, Sophia Webster teamed up with Puma for another fantasy-filled-glitter-extravaganza that dropped this week!

All I wanted was this $550 varsity jacket in a XXL but of course it’s ALREADY sold out *super bummed face*. At least my credit card gets a break and my wallet gets a win! If you’re NOT a 2X, all other sizes are still available and I’m uber jealous…just kidding, get it girl!

Here’s a few more items featured in this collab:

Baseball Shirt $80

Flatform Sandal $150






Crew Jumper $80

There’s still more from this capsule collection and a few (very few) from the last collab on the site if you hurry.  In the meantime, check it out and tell me what you think…are you buying or passing?

Fave Fall Finds: Boots Edition


Whether you have small feet, wide feet, thicker calf muscles, or larger ankles…there is a boot out there for you!

So, it finally feels like fall…wait…scratch that…it’s STILL summer.

After going through a major heat wave in September…I’m talking about 90+ degrees in Michigan, we’re still in the 80’s and it’s October! This is making it feel like a very long summer.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for getting some vitamin D but I’m ready to add a few layers. 

The one thing this weather won’t stop: me from wearing boots! That’s riiiight, it’s boot season whether the temperatures says it or not. 

And since it’s that time of the year, I’ve been scouring the stores to find the perfect pairs to share with you guys!

Plexiglas Watch $670 – Gucci

Gucci has been on a social media frenzy about their new watches lately and honestly, I can’t blame them!

Wild Thing 50 – $785   Aquazzura

Such a cute bag and on trend with the wide strap. (Of course it also reminds me of the old school Gucci bags) but for a great bag under $30? Sold! 






If I’m going to do wild flats for spring/summer…it’d be these! Taking me back to the 90’s!

What are your hump day wants…

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Every Budget


Valentine’s Day Gifts: hooray!

Every time Valentine’s Day rolls around, people in relationships are hit with a dilemma: What am I going to get him or her for Valentine’s Day?!

If you aren’t asking yourself this question, congratulations, you are free to spend all your monies on yourself!

Maybe I’ll get around to a wonderful post on self-spending…oops…self-love.

In the meantime, let’s look around at gifts for our significant others.

The title of this post is not misleading, as you know, here at Curves And Coffee, I try to cover ALL spending levels. If you have $20 or less to spend or you’re balling out of control and spending upwards of $500 or more…I’ve got you covered! Below, you’ll find gifts for any girlfriend, boyfriend, spouse, or significant other in just about every category. 



Starting with gifts under $100



Signature Handwritten Bracelet – $30

AshleeArtis on Etsy


I’ve personally been “eyeing” this bracelet for awhile to purchase for myself. A great way to wear or remember a special person.





Rose Embroidered Babydoll $56

Lane Bryant


This is kind of a two-fer…for both him AND her! It can also just be worn for just yourself…a day or night when you just want to sleep sexily. If you haven’t checked out their complete Valentine’s Day Cacique collection, please do! If I could get every single sexy piece of lingerie, I would in a heartbeat!



Custom O.G. Reclaimed Wood Beard Comb $34

McClaren Woodshop on Scoutmob



Great for the bearded guy! This shop also offers a mini size beard comb that’s perfect for those that carry less.




adidas X PLR $80



So who doesn’t love sneakers?! Even the guy that wears suits everyday or the girl who wears heels wouldn’t mind a nice pair of sneakers to relax into. 



Gifts $100-500


Polaroid Snap Touch Camera $179

Best Buy




Perfect for the amateur photographer or anyone who loves taking selfies. This camera is an update to the instant Polaroid of the “old days.” It instantly prints out the pics you take on a mini scale film. Bonus: it comes in different colors so your fashion forward significant other will love it even more!





Majestic Custom Jersey $124


Another versatile Valentine’s Day gift for him or her. A custom baseball jersey for your significant other would be a great way to cheer on their team before the MLB season gets underway. You can also get their favorite player if you don’t want to go the custom route or if you’re running short on time.




Royal Salute 21 Year Old Scotch Whiskey – $209





Everyone knows someone who wouldn’t mind an aged Scotch (well, I’m guessing here a tad but a lover of spirits will love this for sure!) Shock them with this gift and beautiful bottle for his bar. There’s also a great back story about the Chivas Brothers to go along with this brand. Be sure to sneak that into the gift-giving. 



Gifts over $500


Sophia Webster Boss Lady Pumps $495



OK, let’s be real…you know she’s the boss but now everyone else can know it too! These are so very close to the $500 price tag that once you add tax + shipping (unless it’s free). You’ll get several frequent flyer miles on your card after this purchase!



Sydney Evan Diamond Love Necklace $1,610




Show her and tell her just how you feel with this gorgeous necklace. She’ll be glad you did!



Caribbean Cruise $Cost Will Vary



Because, who wouldn’t want to get away for a couple of days and hide from winter?! Count me in! Also, someone take me on a cruise! Let’s all pack up and enjoy lots of sunshine (with sunscreen of course) have some cocktails and forget about everything except your cabin key! I didn’t pick a particular brand or cruise line simply because everyone has their own preferences and that choice is best left up to you, the buyer. Before you cruise, do your due diligence in research…my favorite cruise site is Cruise Critic, check them out and read the forums for tons of cruising tips.





What a wonderful list of Valentine’s Day gifts, right?!


As always, if you do shop and buy something from any of my lists, drop me a line to let me know! 

Baby It’s (almost) Cold Outside

Despite what it feels like outside, it is actually November…MID-NOVEMBER!

Eventually,  we will need a winter coat. Trust me on this. Being from Michigan, I love the fall season but I’m dreading the day we see our first frost. The best thing we can do now is to be prepared! 

Whenever those winter chill elements decide to hit us in the face, I’m here to provide a little help with your coat shopping. Finding the perfect outerwear to keep us warm can be task but don’t let that overwhelm you. You want to find a jacket or coat that you’re comfortable in, that you can actually move in and of course one that will keep you warm. In short, you want a coat to function, fit well, and look absolutely fabulous in!

 Below, I picked out several options for both style and the elements! There are jackets/coats that will keep you warm if you’re out when the sun goes down with the temp and jackets that will wrap you in warmth if it happens to snow.

End of Summer Style

Summer is just about over! ย For those in between days when it’s not quite cool enough for a sweater and you still want to look cute, what to do?ย Or if you’re like me, you want to get at least one more wear out of that perfect summer maxi dress…


0park2Simply pair a denim jacket and sandals with your maxi dress and you’re all set to go for a Sunday stroll in the park!

Dress: Perfectly Priscilla

Shoes: Pour La Victoire

Jacket: Old Navy

Phone Case: Kate Spade



plus size maxi dressOf course I took my furry baby beagle Chipper (who’s now 5 and loves to pull me) for a walk through the park! Dubbed “Great Expectations Maxi Dress by Perfectly Priscilla” is spot on! Needless to say this dress meets and exceeds my expectations! It is both cute and functional, isn’t heavy so it doesn’t weigh me down. It isn’t too thin, so no one will be able see through the fabric! I am absolutely in love with this dress! It’s the perfect length even for my short 5’3″ frame without any alterations.


Speaking of the fabric…the print! Oh my gosh, the print!

Perfectly priscilla maxi dress

It has a very Moroccan motif that I’m absolutely in love with! The material is perfect for summer or an almost fall day. Bonus: the upper part of the strapless dress is lined!



Must say, I’m pretty excited about fall weather coming. For me, there’s nothing better than a pair of jeans and a sweater when the air is crisp. Can’t wait to see what Perfectly Priscilla has in store for the fall and winter! I’ll definitely grab a couple of stylish things.


This cute plus size maxi dress was provided by Perfectly Priscilla for my honest review.
