Heart and Honey QUEEN BEE Box!

heartand honey  QUeen bee image

I have been a fan of Heart and Honey since I found them on Instagram over a year ago and must say they are still one of my favorite subscription boxes! I only post products on here I actually like and this box is certainly one of them. Heart and Honey strives to bring sexual well being and body health together. Since my last box they have started offering even more boxes! The most fitting box for myself happened to be the QUEEN BEE BOX! I mean come on, that is the most fitting name!

box-e1502731337582.jpg

The QUEEN BEE BOX contains 1 luxury sex toy and 2-5 smaller adult gifts. All products are to compliment a monthly wellness theme that promotes vitality and passion. As a sex positive feminist I am always happy to check out new toys to pleasure myself or partner. This QUEEN BEE BOX put all the focus on Moi which I am very okay with. As I often say self care is very important. Taking time for ourselves should be part of everyone’s weekly routine. For me a relaxing bath is a must at least once a week and this time I got to try the lovely Dona by Systems Jo aphrodisiac Bubblebath from my Heart and Honey Box. Smells and feels delicious!

I also received some fun nipple enhancing gel. Nipples always need attention, on him or her, so this is a great little product to have handy. Other fun gems from my QUEEN BEE BOX included fuzzy Za Za Zu feather handcuffs, Sliguid lube,  Orgalamix lip balm, and a gorgeous silky foral scarf.

Saving the best for last my Nalone FiFi Vibrator! This little pink friend is so fun! So small but yet powerful which is very important. USB charging which is also a must especially since I travel often with smaller toys like this. I especially love clitoral stimulation so FiFi Vib was perfect for solo play or with my partner. It provided the perfect tease to get me right where I needed. 7 speeds gave a variety of enjoyment as well.

Heart and Honey now has 3 box options, so if you aren’t thinking the QUEEN BEE is for you see what else they have to offer. A smaller starter box would be the BUMBLE BEE BOX that contains 2-4 sex toy products or accessories.

If you and a partner would like to treat each other than I would suggest the COUPLES BOX, which is custom made for the couple. Sight, smell, taste and touch will all be ignited when this box is received. This box will spoil and delight those partaking.

All of these boxes are available as one time purchases or as subscriptions! If you are not quite sure if you’ll love a box try it once. After one time you’ll be begging for more. Luckily Heart and Honey offers 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions!

Check out all the sensual details at www.HeartandHoneyBox.com or on Instagram at heartandhoneybox

Remember we must keep ourselves happy, right? Indulge yourself in this monthly treat! I promise you’ll be satisfied.

Torrid size 2 Pineapple Skater dress- Hot pink

I have a million skater dresses! The cut is so flattering to anyone because it accentuates your small waist.  This is another causal look for me but you can dress it up easy with heels or a necklace. From the office out to dinner and drinks would be easy in this.

Love your Thighs in Thigh Society Shorts!

Logo

All of us plus ladies know the agony of chubrub! And if you don’t, I envy you! Seriously, this is one thing I am actually self conscious about. Because of my thighs rubbing I get dark spots and sometimes breakouts. I hate it! I have used powders, deodorants and spanx. In the end no chemical has lasted more than 30 minutes and shorts get so sweaty and therefore hold moisture in which rubs my thighs.
 

Size 2x High Rise Black Short

Thigh Society shorts really are unique. They are not spanx, they are lightweight and VERY comfortable. The moisture wicking material is comfortable on the skin and breathable.  Thigh Society shorts keep you dry, so you never have to worrying about leaving a wet mark on a chair or pulling them off with pliers. haha

Product-Explenation_Grey3_f5b6aada-7796-4d00-af15-779a5f28f5ea_1500x.progressive

Thigh Society shorts come in three styles and three colors that run from a size S-4XL.  All are sold for $34.00, a good price for a quality product that lasts. The three styles have varying lengths at the waist: Mid Rise, High Rise, and Ultra High Rise. I prefer my underthings to go over my belly button, so I got the high rise shorts and they fit great!

Get yours at www.ThighSociety.com ! 

Five kisses for this fabulous product! I’m looking forward to seeing more from Thigh Society!

Curvy Kate now shipping to the US!

I have been eyeing Curvy Kate Lingerie for at least a year. As soon as I started seeing photos of the gorgeous sets and heard about the large array of sizes I’ve wanted to get these pieces on my body! Finally my wishes came true and Curvy Kate now ships to the US!

I was gifted three sets from Curvy Kate and am very impressed with the quality, styles, and fit! Each set was a different bra or panty style and I seriously loved them all. If you have never checked out Curvy Kate’s bras the first thing to know is they have a vast variety of sizes. They specialize in large cups that run D- K! Band sizes run from 28-44. Do note that they are a UK company so make sure to check your size in UK sizing. Band width will be the same in US and the UK, but cup size does differ!

42D Daily Dream Padded Balconette Bra. Size UK 22 cheeky short
IMG_2095
Bra $65 Panty $36

The aqua set was the most comfortable for daily wear. I wore this set the entire day of my shoot and it felt great. The fabric was extra soft and had a decent amount of stretch. The bra also had padding, which I prefer for good coverage on a daily bases.

IMG_2110
42D Vegas Balconette Bra, Size UK 22 Vegas Brazilian Brief
IMG_2118
Bra $66, Panty $35

Can we talk about how much I love mesh! It is so sexy and feminine, so these panties felt amazing! The brazilian cut hugged my ass perfect leaving very little to the imagination. This is a great set to show off, perfect for a special date night. This set will make you love the way you look.

42D Ellace Balconette Bra, Indigo and size UK 24 Ellace Brazilian, Indigo

IMG_2188

IMG_2220

This blue set is also just stunning! This bra does not have any padding so I would not wear it daily, but it would fit great with a silky dress for an evening. Full lace panties hug my hips perfect and cover my ass just enough. Again this piece made me feel so sexy and is meant to be shown off.

Check out Curvy Kate here!

I cannot wait to try more from Curvy Kate ! They also offer swim wear and an additional lingerie selection called Scantilly, which is a bit more R rated. US ladies I promise their items are worth the money! If you are nervous to order from a UK brand, do not be! Contact customer service and they will guide you to the correct size and make suggestions. I can’t say enough what a lovely and friendly company this is. Plus, they strive for all ladies to have sexy well fit lingerie!

Hips & Curves Lingerie

hipsncurves

Finding lingerie that is not only high quality, fabulous and affordable is tricky.  That’s why I’m fortunate to have Hips & Curves as an advertising partner. Curvy ladies between sizes 10-28 who love lingerie or just want to spice things up; must check out this brand!  California based, this lingerie company has been catering to curves since 2000. From beautiful bra and pantie sets to racy costumes, Hips & Curves has it all! One of my favorite things about Hips and Curves, other then the fact that they cater to plus sizes, is the diversity. They offer so many everyday lingerie items and even more delicious delights.

DSC_6973

I had the pleasure of posing for the talented Rachel Schwebach in my gifted Hips and Curves lingerie. I cannot emphasize enough how comfortable these sexy pieces were! It is so rare to find a full piece that is actually comfortable and sexy.

I started in with the cozy cotton sleep shirt in a size 2xl. It fit perfect and was very light weight with just a hint of see through sex appeal. This is not an item I would normally go for because generally I say less is more, however this was a great change for me and I felt stunning. Who doesn’t appreciate a beautiful woman in a all white dress shirt? It screams “I am a total sexpot!” This shirt specifically is excellent because the light weight material and versatility. You can turn the heat up with being nude underneath or wear a bra and pantie set under. Then the next night you have it for a cozy sleep shirt.

Camille Strappy Lace Panty 2X In Black

Paired with the sleep shirt I wore the Camille Strappy Lace pantie in a 2xl. I am a big fan of any strappy lingerie, I think straps beautify a woman’s curves. Also, they hug my cheeks great giving them just the attention needed and bringing all eyes to it.

DSC_6921

The Solange Lace Chemise is everything! The lace up each side is such a beautiful detail that I have not seen in other chemises. The piece has plenty of room but also has some hold. Plus the cups lift and hold up the girls so well! There is nothing worse that a sexy piece of lingerie with no support- but don’t worry that is not the case here! FULL SUPPORT FOR THE LADIES!

Solange Lace Chemise 42 Medium Cup In Black

I added an extra touch to my full outfit by pairing my favorite thigh highs by Kixies and the caged pantie from above. I love the look of the cage showing through just enough to get the mind going. I didn’t want to take this outfit off! I would suggest this exact chemise for anyone. It works for any woman because it has coverage but also shows the perfect amount of skin. Its the an absolutely perfect balance for any woman to feel comfortable in.

Hips & Curves is offering a fabulous 20% off for all my blog readers and fans now through Saturday. All you have to do is follow this link  20% off or use the code “AshleeLove”.

Torrid Lingerie Love

Audrey-Hepburn-meme

If you know me you know that Torrid is in my top 3 favorite stores! I say this without any hesitation. And this is not a paid post- I just feel every plus size woman should try Torrid’s clothes and lingerie. I am always a size 2 in Torrid to give you a reference, plus their sizes never change like some brands. I can count on being a 2 always. In jeans I’m a 22 or dresses that size in that fashion I’m a 22. Anyway I want to talk my favorite current lingerie looks from Torrid. Sadly, I can’t afford them all so stock photos will have to suffice…..this is very saddening for me as I truly want a walk in closet of Torrid lingerie. hehe A girl can dream.

pink
Smooth Plunge bra and microfiber panty set

This is my go to everyday favorite set! I LOVE the feel of the microfiber panties plus they are sexy. Paired with the smooth push up and my girls are held up all day! This does give you cleavage so if you are not going for that I would suggest another style of bra. But Torrid has A LOT of styles so don’t worry you will find one you love.

skulls
Floral Skull Print Microfiber & Lace Racerback Bralette & Floral Skull Print Lace Up Microfiber Cheekster Panty

Now this is a comfortable and sexy set! Every woman should try a bralette because they are some comfortable and insanely popular. Even better they work well for all sizes from small to very large breasts. And again did I say how comfortable they are?

lace.jpg
Lace Bralette Babydoll

I would sleep in this lace babydoll every night if I could! It is so comfortable and light. I’m always warm, so the least amount of sleepwear is best. This is great because you are covered but also still look sexy.

red
Lace and Mesh Longline Bralette set

I cant have a lingerie post with out some red hot sexpot sets! And this is it! Damn I need this in my life. Can I just lounge around in bed wearing this, being fed chocolate covered strawberries? Ok ok I’ll stop fantasizing, but seriously this number is FIERCE! Want to wake your husband up from the typical monotony then put this set on and just walk in the damn room. If he doesn’t get fired up quick them you better walk on outside and leave him drooling. High wasted panties and longline bras are VERY in-style and perfect if you want to cover some belly. Add red mesh and lace = mind blowing sex appeal!

ONLINE- BOGO 50% OFF* REG. PRICE

Feel free to shop through my blog as I do have affiliate links to Torrid, like the one above. I have tried so many types of lingerie from Torrid so ask me if you have any! Plus I love talking lingerie.

Plus Size line Curvy Sense Review

logo.png

I seriously have to gush over Curvy Sense! So many positives with this company that I don’t know where to start. The styles of course are amazing, you can find causal cute T’s or sexy bodysuits. They literally have everything a girl could want on their site. Even bikinis and swimsuits. Plus their prices are AMAZING! Normally you get what you pay for, but their low prices give you very high quality garments. All three items I received from Curvy Sense came in great shape and were very well made. (Bonus most items are made in the USA) I’m no gentle little lady so I do give my clothing some serious wear, so quality is a necessity. I was especially impressed with the stitching and overall construction of all my pieces. All were flawless and thicker than a normal $20 item.

20170507_122732.jpg
Plus Size Accordion Cross Front Bodysuit- Size 3x- $@3.00

This bodysuit gave my girls all the love up top! I always enjoy cleavage so I was excited about a V neck cross front bodysuit. The straps were adjustable also which is great because I am short and often need to change my straps. The bodysuit fit perfect in every spot! The fabric is stretchy and I had plenty of room so I was comfortable. I paired this bodysuit with a Forever21 tulle skirt and chunky Torrid wedges. Obviously this outfit shows some skin so it is perfect for the summer! I would wear this out on the town or on a Saturday at the lake. Dress it up with some jewelry and you have yourself one sexy look!

20170507_122628

The second bodysuit was different than my usual style, but its good to get out of the norm, right? I do love the royal blue and how well it was made just like my other items from Curvy Sense. I went with a sleek dark denim jegging from Torrid and heels for this bodysuit. I planned on wearing it solo, but the booty didn’t fit like I imagined. It wasn’t full coverage nor was it a thong- it was in the middle, showed a little cheek. I did really enjoy the asymmetrical straps on the bodysuit. Very bold and different especially pared with blue. I would wear this out to lunch with friends or a weekend shopping, but again it could be easily dressed up.

Plus size Color Block Bodysuit-Royal Blue, size 3x, $21.00

 

Last and my absolute favorite (thought I’m partial to dresses) is the SEXY Plus Size Frill Bodycon dress in RED! They also carry this same dress in mint on the website. At $29.00 I am saying everyone should own this dress. One because everyone needs a sexy red dress and because it fits like a glove, is a great price, and is actually really comfortable. I was highly impressed that the bust area had a sculpted wire. I have a lot of sexy V neck dresses but none have a wire to hold fabric into shape. This knit material was stretchy and also hugged my curves so good. The off the shoulder ruffle detail was another highlight with this dress. The ruffles laid perfect and didn’t overpower the look. The I felt like a total sexpot in this dress and was really comfortable!

The Pampered Period Box

PPBox

20170505_172659           20170505_172540

My May subscription box review is all about The Pampered Period Box! As you might have noticed I’m loving female specific subscription boxes lately. This box really caught my eye because the large amount of items you get and its not only items for your period. I would suggest this box to ladies who do not menstruate as well. The Pampered Period Box is more about providing women with items and techniques to practice self care. In fact my box didn’t even come with pads or tampons, but was FULL of great items for me to indulge myself in. The box came packaged with beautiful details to make it extra special. I loved the cute postcard with the cinnamon stick and rose petals that filled the box.

20170505_172940

My Pampered Period Box came with so many luscious goodies! I just kept unpacking items, it was great! My favorite items included a large notebook, a cute makeup bag, a TonyMoly mask, and two bath bombs! I am obsessed with baths so I can never have enough bombs.

20170505_173228      20170505_173014     20170505_173147

Also included in was liquid B12, which I have never used. After reading the information sent with my pampered period box I learned simply adding the B12 to a drink daily can help keep my nerves and red blood cells healthy.

A unique add to my box was a delicious recipe for a chocolate smoothie. Other drinks included a  box of calming flow tea and several packets of electrolyte mix. This box had hydration covered!

20170505_173122

What is a period box without some chocolate!? My Pampered Period Box came with four yummy squares to nibble on while you relax in the bath wearing your TonyMoly mask. After the bath try the Beauty Works Shea butter lotion and continue your evening of relaxation with the candle burning through the night. This is certainly a relaxation self care box. I could get used to receiving all these treats once a month. No need to go to the store for your girlie goods, just sign up for the Pampered Period Box!

What’s in the box each month? Finely curated items for menstrual health and self care. each month is different. You don’t have to have a menstrual cycle to enjoy this box!

Price? $57 per month

Why? Because you need to indulge yourself from time to time. And 10% of every purchase goes to Girls Helping Girls Period Organization.

How I Learned To Love Myself, Inside and Out

Loving myself has been an ongoing battle since I can remember. As a kid I was the chubby friend and the fat girl on the softball team that didn’t run very fast. I was every guys friend, but never a girlfriend. My older brother never had to chase guys off because no guys saw me as more than a buddy. This, plus being chubby from day one led to many insecurities.

As a teenager my self confidence was nonexistent. I hid behind my own fat jokes and baggy clothes. I used my humor to hide because inside I had no idea who I was. My family was a typical Midwest family that loved me and gave me all I needed, including lots of meat and potatoes. I had a great life, two great parents who supported anything I did. A spacious home and a car given to me at 16. Life was picture perfect to an outsider.

Around 16 is when I started to learn about depression and mental illness. I became aware that it ran in my family. I learned there is a difference between being a moody teen and being suicidal. Thankfully, my parents saw this and got me help. To this day I am on anti-depressants and am so thankful for them.

Around 18 I met my first real boyfriend. Before this time I never gave my body a good look because I was too busy staying covered and embarrassed.  I never saw my imperfections as beautiful. I only compared myself to women in magazines and on TV.  At a size 10/12 I felt like a blimp. I laugh now when looking back at size 12 me because I really wasn’t big at all.  I hated everything about my body and about my self. Now at a size 20/22 and 33 years old I wish I could tell every teenager that you don’t have to look a certain way! You don’t have to be what is considered good looking in our society! Just be you! And if fat is the worst thing you are, then you are doing pretty damn good in life!

In college I started to appreciate my curves while learning more about myself.  I started playing roller derby and loved that I could have sex appeal while still sweating and knocking girls down. This really exhilarated me and help me break out of my shell. A friend asked me to model for them for a school photography project around this time. From that first shoot I felt absolutely alive in front of the camera. I felt like I could shed all my insecurities and show my true self.  Back then, I was a size 16/18 and felt the best I ever had. I was embracing my body. I started indulging in self care like bubble baths and shopping for items that made feel great. I no longer wanted to wear big t-shirts to cover myself up.

Honestly, life’s ups and downs, mixed with so many new experiences have shaped me into who I am now. Taking risks like going to Scotland for 6 months during college and posing nude for a sculptor have helped me embrace my true self. Putting myself out there has made my confidence grow and that continues even today, at 33. Body Positivity, for me, is just as much about loving my body as it is about loving what’s inside too. Once I was able to treat my depression,  I had to learn to love my body and I realized that it wasn’t going to change. I believe we do inherit a lot of our size from our family and I am now proud of the booty my mom gave me and my freckled skin. It took me 20 years to realize it’s okay to be fat. It’s okay to show my skin and enjoy it. The human body can be art if you let yourself see the beauty.
