Tune in Tuesday: Lizzo

Tunes for your Tuesday anyone?

Here’s the new single from Lizzo

Truth Hurts



I legit feel this song on a spiritual level lol y’all have NO idea! I’ve been caught singing it randomly while in the grocery store! 

If you need MORE Lizzo (because yes you do damnit) check out her other drops on iTunes…especially Coconut Oil, which is STILL in heavy rotation for me.

“Why men great til they gotta be great?!” Giiiiiiiiiirl

Movie Night: Love on the Run

There’s a new movie available on Apple iTunes, Amazon and VOD this week that you should definitely check out. From Tricoast, Love on the Run stars (yes, STARS)  plus size actress by the name of Jen Ponton.


I was able to view the movie and it was cool to see a “love story” with a plus size woman in the lead. Now, I won’t give away all the details…you’re gonna have to watch it for yourself BUT there’s definitely a few twists and turns in the plot.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see more curves in Hollywood?! Jen definitely thinks so. Can’t wait to see more of her in the future.

Then March cough cough March 4th to be exact cough my birthday cough cough.  I really want to spend this years birthday in Vegas so if you know of any great places to sleep/eat/party/gamble…email me [email protected] or find me on “The Twitta” @CurvesAndCoffee!
