eloquii by The Limited

I'm so excited to finally announce that I am partnering with eloquii by The Limited, a new plus size brand that's launching this fall! I've been working closely with them for months, checking out the clothes, having brainstorming sessions, and giving my feedback to the team. I can say with confidence that eloquii is really about celebrating plus size women who want quality, on trend clothing that works from day to night.

Take a look at the video below to see a sneak peek of what's to come, and make sure you sign up at and follow them on Facebook and twitter for exclusive info before the launch in October! I can't wait to share more with you guys as the date approaches.

P.S. I promise to post an outfit in the next few days!

Arrojo Salon Makeover

I've been wanting to dye my hair for, oh, about ten years now. Yep, since high school I've wanted to go blonde, pink, blue, jet black, and everything in between. But for some reason (read: fear) I never took the plunge. This month, more than ever, I'd been craving a change of hue, perhaps because of the transitional time in my life. I just finished my year at MTV, and I want to thank all of you again for supporting me and helping make my dreams come true.

So anyway, back to my hair. When I was contacted recently by the famous Arrojo Salon about coming in for a complimentary service, I knew I had to go for it. I told my colorist, Kelly, that I wanted light brown, and I'm really pleased with how things turned out. It's crazy because depending on the lighting, it can look red or even blonde! My stylist Emily made my hair look so fabulous; she gave me beachy curls that I never knew my hair was capable of having. All in all, I had a great experience and I can't wait to see the final shots. Here are some photos of the process:


And if you haven't heard, I was featured alongside some of my favorite bloggers in the September issue of Teen Vogue!
