Hey guys!

Just a quick update…

Some posts and photos are unavailable thanks to Photobucket (a photo hosting site) changing their site without notification back in July. This also happened to be the month I was sick with the worst ear infection I’ve ever had, so I’m just now seeing the issue.

It’ll be a task but I’ll have to find the posts among the hundreds with the missing photos and updating those posts. So far, it looks like its mostly posts from two-three years ago (no recent links) and those photos are on my OLD laptop so therein lies the headache.

This is when money and a personal assistant would come in handy!

Well, I’m off to get started on this monumental climb. I’ll keep you updated and will try my best to throw a new post up if I can.



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!

Tune In: Music Mix

Hey stylish sweets! Since I had some technical difficulties this week aka my power adapter cord for my laptop completely fizzled out while typing! Talk about a disaster! Luckily, I was able to give you guys a taste of the Met Gala via mobile blogging. It’s amazing how technology can fail and create all at the same damn time! Speaking of technology, Curves and Coffee will undergo an overhaul in the coming weeks. Definitely time for a fresh new look so stay tuned and I’ll keep you updated.

Anywho, time to turn up your Thursday!

Drop City Yacht Club…ok, gotta admit….I never heard this song or heard of the group until someone told me to listen to it a few weeks ago. Now I can’t get the song out of my head!!! Hey Jeremih!

Um Selena Gomez dun growed up on us, y’all!! And is she telling someone to “Come and Get It”?! Ok Ms. Gomez, do your thing!

Instant Classic. You really can’t go wrong with any song that features 50 Cent, Eminem AND Adam Levine!!!

Everyone knows I’m a very colorful and visual person so when I got wind that Iggy Azalea was making a new video with India in mind……I couldn’t wait to see the finished product! Bounce really does make you wanna bounce and do traditional Indian dances. This vid has a total Bollywood theme and I love it!

Enjoy your day and happy almost Friday!!


Petal Pusher

Hey stylish sweets! Just stopping to smell the roses and to say I’m still pushing through the week. This busy busy family week is taking me away from the in-depth Curves & Coffee posts BUT I’m still posting on Twitter & Facebook. Everything should be back to normal Monday.

Leap of Faith

Just want to start off by saying….. THANK YOU!

I never really thought I’d be back blogging again especially having a fashion blog with a dot com address!!  Friends and family were all pushing for me to do it and after many nights of contemplation I took the leap of faith and just did it.  So happy that I did!

It’s only been 14 days since the site has been live but it feels like a lifetime with all the support you guys have given me.  I’m sure there’ll be extraordinary days of bliss, a couple plateaus and maybe even some down days (hopefully not lol) but that’s all a part of starting something new.  Just gotta keep pushing and stay positive.

So, to continue on this positive path, I decided to take another leap of faith and make a Twitter account for Curves and Coffee!!!!  Amazing, right?!  Mostly out of respect for my friends on my personal account, I don’t want to fill timelines ALL DAY with links to my blog posts….maybe just once a day for you guys!

To all my friends, family and the wonderful strangers that make me smile behind this keyboard everyday…. THANK YOU!

Now go to Twitter and follow Curves and Coffee.…enough of the mushy stuff you little sap trees!!!


Kisses & Love
