Pillow Talk

I feel like a new person! I'm so excited to finally share with you all my Big Fig experience. Let's set the scene, my old mattress was bad, B-A-D. It was old, I would toss and turn and my boyfriend hated it. Enter, Big Fig, the mattress for bigger frames. We upgraded from a queen to a king, and we went with the foundation and box spring, for the full Big Fig situation. This is a solid bed and wow my body is thanking me every morning.

On the real, real, I could never go back. As a tall, plus size woman, I feel tiny in this big bed and that is rare. This is the best mattress I've ever had and so worth it. This isn't a blogger influencer ad, this is two months of sleeping soundly and honestly my life has changed. Can we also note my boyfriend won't leave lol!? I don't blame him, It's a lot harder to get out of a Big Fig in the morning because it's so comfy. 

How it all happened? I ordered my whole set up. It took two weeks to get to the shipping company and then two days to get from the shipping company to me. They delivered, set up and took out meh old mattress. It was SO easy.

If you're in the market for a new, top of the line mattress, I suggest BIG FIG! I have a discount code: THEBWORD and can we talk about the Black Friday weekend sales?!

I know so many of you have asked me about my experience with Big Fig and it has been nothing short of amazing! +

Back to Basics

I  started The B Word, on a limp. I  needed a creative outlet, so I decided to post one outfit a week for a year. If I didn't like it after a year, I would stop. Since that first year, I have created campaigns, calendars, four #BEinyourskin challenges, events, videos and I was burnt out. I've been burnt out for awhile, caught between creating for passion or money. I'm my best when I'm financially stable. I'm my best when I feel emotionally stable lol. 

I've been off my game. I had to step back to deal with me. It feels good. I feel like I'm going to come back more focused then ever and that's what I need. Blogging and social media influencing was never the goal, never the end all be all but through this I have had so many experiences, met so many people, gotten to be creative for work and I wouldn't trade that. I think there is a way to marry all my passions and build it into a career. I'm working on being ready for the next level, for new opportunities, for my dreams to become my reality. SO I'm going back to basics. I'm wanting to get back to my 2015 routine, a fashion blog post a week. I always speak on consistency and I need to be more consistent. When in doubt, what brings you joy. When in doubt what routine can you realistically do. 

I'm working on exciting things and I can't wait for us to grow together ++

You all are incredible, I hope you know how bad ass you are
