Hey curvy girls all over the world,
For the past couple of weeks I have been in a funk. As women, we do so much and often forget about ourselves. As adults we have so much responsibility that we are always on the go, and again, often forget about ourselves. Time is flying by and I often find myself asking where did the day go. Today, I took the opportunity to indulge in a little me time.

Normally, I always head to Manhattan when I take the day off but this time I wanted to embrace my own neighborhood that is Bayridge. Bayridge is such a beautiful and family oriented area. Plus it has tons of quaint restaurants and oh there is 86th street where you can shop for designer gear at the huge Century21. Also, we get beautiful views of the Verrazano bridge on 95th street.

It was such a beautiful sunny spring day and I wanted to wear something that was bright, colorful, and easy to move around in for the day. I am a fan of the neon trend and when I found this neon knit short sleeve sweater at the Loft I thought it was an easy and simple way to try out the trend. Pleats are also a popular trend this season and when I spotted this pink pleated skirt at Eloquii I figured it would be one of those pieces that can work double duty.

To add a special touch, I had to breakout my new glitter slingback pumps. What girl doesn't like a little sparkle?! I received numerous compliments on them and they kind of made me feel a little special.

I kicked off my me time by checking out a popular neighborhood restaurant called Circles. Out of 4 years of living in Bayridge I've never eaten at Circles and thought today would be a good day to give it a try.

I had a very tasty shrimp parm

with a tall glass of ice cold pink lemonade which matched my outfit.

After lunch I went for a mani and pedi and got a massage. Just spending time by myself gave my mind a rest. I didn't think about work or the things that needed to be done at home. My mind was still and it felt pretty good. Just a few hours to myself rejuvenated my spirit.

So the next time you feel overwhelmed by life and your responsibilites or you find that you haven't had a day off or even a few hours to yourself, stop and take sometime for yourself.
