Brieyonce Day 2 Daytime ( Jan31)
Saturday morning my bday continued with me taking a visit to the city with one of my Best Friends Danielle! We had a blast drinking bottomless mimosas, and chomping on brunch! If you are ever in the city go visit Mezetto it was the bomb!
For the outfit I want to look like I came straight from The Devil Wears Prada. I wanted to be fabulous, but comfortable, and more importantly WARM! I absolutely LOVEEDD this outfit! I felt like a fashion editor!

For my makeup this day I kept things simple. I wanted to go for a natural look. I did my usual everyday makeup. Pretty soon I will be recording my foundation and concealer routine. I’ve switched it up since the summer. I gave myself a nude lip using Circe from NYX. This nude is the truth! It doesn’t even look like I have lipstick on!
Brieyonce Day 2 Nigh-time (Jan 31)
After being in the city all afternoon, I rushed home to change so that I could go to my next bday destination which was a Hookah Bar in Wood bridge called Fire and Ice. I had such a wonderful night with my Big Sis Natasha, and I felt like a million bucks! There were drinks everywhere, Beyonce playing all night, and I even ran into an old friend.

Top 12 2014 Moments of NoMinusPlus



HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE DARLING DIVAS!!!!
It’s just so crazy to me that tomorrow is going to be the first day of 2015! I feel like we were just bringing in 2014 yesterday, and now today is the last day! Crazy how time flies right? All of my favorite bloggers always do a recap of what happened on their blog for the year, and I also like to do the same. It’s always great to look back and see what happened here on the blog. Now I was going  to limit it to just fashion ( which I have done the past 2 years), but this year had soo many great moments that I couldn’t just file it under fashion. I decided to countdown my favorite moments/blogpost of 2014! If you want to check out the blog-post, just click on the title of the blog above the pic. So enough of my blabbering, lets get started!

This outfit made the list because it was truly one of THE most comfortable outfits I wore this year! Styling colored jeans can be kind of tricky, but I really enjoyed this look!

Now if you know me at all then you know that cheetah is basically my fave color! This moment was when I fell in love with MAC’s Heroine which is honestly THE BEST LIPSTICK ON THE PLANET! And also this jacket is my soul-mate, so for those two reasons this outfit made the cut.
The Maxi Skirt is the holy grail of the summer, and this outfit was so cute and casual. It mixed colors and prints that I didn’t even think would go together.
Can we please have a moment of silence for this dress,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Ok moment over. This dress is hands down the most FAB dress ever! I absolutely love this dress. and when I die I will be buried in it! The color, the sleeves, just everything about this dress is amazing!
Now my obsession for lipstick this year went extremely overboard! The amount of lipsticks in various colors that I have right now is truly insane! I really enjoyed making this video because I felt that it was the perfect guide for those wanting to try lipstick colors a try. Still a very relevant video, so check it out if your looking to take your lipstick obsession to a new level.
This post was VERY popular this year, and I def understand why it was! Plus Size Pageants? Um yes sign me up! It was an honor to interview my friend Jeanel for this blogpost. She is truly such a warm spirited person, and I was so excited that I personally knew a pageant queen! I think its so powerful that plus size women are getting more platforms to showcase their beauty and talent, and it excites me to think what other opportunities will be coming our way in the future.
Dying my hair blue was the best mistake that I have ever done! It felt so awesome to have blue hair, and I def see myself doing it again. This color experiment has sparked my curiosity in coloring my hair all types of funky colors, so don’t be surprised at what color my hair will be in 2015. 
5.Holiday Bombshell Series
Although this series was not completed ( Will explain in a video later this week) I still had alot of fun with what I produced. Makeup has always been a passion of mine, and it was really great to focus on that for awhile. I def learned my lesson though. I am a Jill of all trades for a reason. I can never just focus on one thing.
4. The Seven Deadly Sins Series
 This by far was the most creative thing that I have ever done. It felt so freeing creating 6 different personalities that surrounded each sin. This was also my first ever monthly series that I did, and I’m already brainstorming what series to do next for new year. Hopefully this time I actually finish one (lol) 
One of my biggest accomplishments this year was opening up a store for the blog. I was really excited about it, and I honestly still am. The store will be relaunching early spring 2015 and I hope that with the changes that I make, the store can function a bit better.  Plus who doesn’t love colored shorts?
It amazes me everyday that I have had this blog for 4 years! This blog is the foundation of making my dreams come true, and I am so honored that you all have decided to take this journey with me. I also released my first ever merchandise which is still available at www.styledbynominusplus.bigcartel.com if your interested in purchasing. 
1. Everybody Has a Beachbody
This blogpost broke the internet before Kim Kardashian! Ok so maybe it didn’t, but this blogpsot was a very popular, and dammit I’m really proud of this post! I am all for body positivity, and being comfortable in your own skin. This blogpsot was just to celebrate curves, and inspire curvy women to wear whatever the hell they want on the beach! I’m glad you all enjoyed my half-nakedness, and I will be sure to follow up with another swimsuit post in 2015!

So ladies that is the 12 Top Moments of 2014! I hope you have enjoyed walking down memory lane with me. This blog has truly developed this year, and I am so excited to see what next year will bring! Later this week I will be introducing you to some new things happening in 2015 on the blog, and I hope you will be down for the ride!
I hope you darling divas have a safe and fun New Years Eve/Day and I will see you in 2015!

Aztec&Azul

Hello All My Darling Divas!

We have been having alot of good weather lately, and I couldn’t be more excited! Even though later it turned out to be a terrible rainstorm, I still was glad I was able to wear a pretty nice outfit. I love wearing bold prints while still being casual. Target is really my favorite place to be because this whole outfit is basically from there. I think I will die in these cute canvas sneakers. They are sooo comfortable and I plan to get a whole bunch more in many colors.

Good Afternoon Darling Divas!

I’m here again with yet another OOTD post and I’m pretty excited about this one. I was FINALLY able to wear my beautiful dress that I received from UmgeePlus. If you want more info about that company, I covered it all in this blog post here
As soon as I got my hands on this dress I awaited the day to wear it, and this past Saturday that day finally came.

I attended a banquet and my mind popped to wear this dress. Everything about this dress is just PERFECTION! The color, the fit, and of course the best part of this dress, the sleeves. 

I think the most difficult part of styling this dress would be to pick what shoes to wear. I wanted to keep all the focus on the style and color of the dress, so I went with a very classy ankle strap pump from Payless. This shoe is sooo comfortable to wear, and for all my bigger foot ladies like myself, this shoe is available up to a size 13. 
My makeup and hair I wanted to be very elegant but simple. So I went with a great last min updo ,and a nude makeup look. Let me know if a tutorial is wanted
 
Well that is all ladies, I hope you have enjoyed! Feel free to follow me at any of my social networking sites. They are all listed above. Until next time ladies, love ya lots like tator tots and see you soon! XOXO
 

Touch Of Pink

So I was scrolling through my pics randomly when I came across an outfit that I didn’t post! Yikes! I have got to do better with my memory. I really enjoyed this outfit so I def made sure that I shared.
Please excuse my top in these photos, the wind was giving me all types of billowing life that day!
I felt very business/not so business savvy in this outfit, I am OBSESSED with these new cut out booties that I got from Torrid. I swear I gotta find time to record my new haulage so that I can explain my love of my new pieces further. 
Cardigan- Umgee Plus
Top- Torrid ( Similar Here)
Jeans- Forever21 
Bag- Aldo
Shoes- Torrid 
So that’s it for my late OOTD post! Feel free to follow me on any of my social networking sites, the links are above. Until next time, Love ya lots like tator tots! XOXO

Pop of Color

Hello all my Darling Divas!
Ok so this weather is really starting to grind my gears. Its getting harder and harder to want to have the desire to dress cute, but hey its my job right? I decided that I wanted to add some color to my outfit, but not too much. Please excuse the crappy pics. I have to depend on my camera when im flicking it up between classes.

Outfit Deets 
Scarf-Ashley Stewart
Cardigan-Umgee
Tshirt-Forever21
Jeans-Forever21
Boots-DebShops
The tutorial to my hairstyle today can be found here

These pink pants from Forever21 are always a bit tricky to style, so I always go for black or white to pair with them. In this case, I decided to pair it with both using this lovely Aztec printed cardigan from Umgee Plus.   The blue scarf adds another pop of color just because I feel that you can never have too much color. 
I cant wait till this weather breaks! I am in desperate need of sandals and crop tops! Ok ladies that is all! I hope you are staying warm in this crazy weather that we have been having. Be sure to check out last week’s post here. It was a great collab I did with my big sis Kenza. Feel free to follow me on all my social network sites. They are listed above. Until next time, love ya lots like tator tots!
