When people tell you that you can't do something because of society standards, do it anyways.

Even when I am tired, I still feel pretty!
Chase those dreams!!! When I was growing up, I wanted to work in fashion. However, I ended up going into English instead. When I first started my party planning business, I always thought that it would be so cool to own a boutique instead, but it didn't seem profitable where we lived. Fast forward to two years ago around this time. I stood in front of this sign in Lakewood after totally breaking the bank while having fun shopping. I started to become friends with the original owner of the shop, and when she decided to sell, she asked me to buy the business. So here I am in front of this sign again getting ready for a three day event. I have been working on putting my own mark on the brand and slowly adding fashion and services that I am slowly introducing to my customers. Sometimes the timing isn't right, but keep your dreams anyway! Chase them, make them happen. What dreams do you have and want to see happen?
Have I mentioned how much I am enjoying my summer? I am loving the weather, the activities, and the opportunities to wear all my favorite dresses! I found this cute dress online at the @theflourishmarket and paired it with my favorite black sandals! I am loving the chance to shop small boutiques every chance I get. This was the perfect outfit for enjoying the Vintage Ohio Wine Festival! How is your summer?
We clean up pretty good, don't ya think?
Let's talk hair care!!! Taking care of our hair should be a part of our to-do list. It is not only important for our hair, but getting the royal treatment at a salon can do wonders for your well-being. This week, I will be sharing more on my blog about my experience at @jbellezzaboutique with the extremely talented @jmkobus14 I had a fabulous, relaxing time and had my very first blow out! Also, if you book an appointment, be sure to use "PMDollBlowout" to get 10% off!!! #hosted
Part of my own personal glow up is learning to rest and take care of my body. The last month has been a bit of a whirlwind, so I kept it light on social media to practice some self care and also reflect on where I want to go from here. Taking social media breaks is important as sometimes we get too connected to our phones. Granted...I still had my phone on me, but that is only because all my books are on my Kindle app now.

It should probably be known that neither of us are Titanic movie fans, but I couldn't resist being a dork on my first car ferry experience. Today, my partner and I celebrate 17 years of marriage. It hasn't been a walk in the park at times, but we keep plugging away. A long lasting relationship rarely looks pretty. There are times when he snores that I want to stick his stinky sock in his mouth. I am sure it hasn't been easy dealing with me and all the baggage from my chronic illness the past few years. Yet here we are...being stupid. Heck, I was mad at him the day we did this. However, love is really not all gushy hearts and stuff. It's messy. Glad he and I decided to stay messy with each other. Can't wait to see what adventures the next 17 years take us!
This summer, I teamed up again with @cincitychic , @styled_by_stacy , @nattygaldotcom , and @followphyllis to give you all some summer accessory inspiration no matter what your age is! To see our tips and looks, be sure to check out my blog, link in bio. Also, what is your go to accessory? P.S. This is the last weekend of the @shoewarehousesale and your last chance to score sandals like these super cheap.
In all the times I have been to the beach, there has never been one picture of me there. I took pictures of my kids, my spouse, my friends...anything and anyone but me. This week, I visited Sunset Beach and decided that I needed to change that. My friend and I did a whole photoshoot (and there was a bit of homage to Dawson's Creek too ). The whole thing didn't make me brave or anything like that. It made me normal, enjoying the beach like a normal business. When we hide ourselves, we are saying we aren't worthy. We are worthy though, and you deserve to have fun and make memories too. We are taught to be hard on our bodies. I challenge you to find new reasons every day to love your body this moment. What do you love about your body today? . . . . . . . . . . . . #beachootd #vacaystyle #summerootd #plussizeswim #fatandfree #fatfriendly #plussizelove #stylehasnosize #insyzestyle #curvyblogger #fatbabe #summertimefatness #normalizenormalbodies #bodyappreciation #allbodiesarebeautiful #nobodyshame #thicklife #beachoutfit #beautyatanysize #visitnc #clevelandblogger #cleblogger #livingmybestlife #effyourbeautystandards #effyourbodystandards #iamsimplybeautiful #iamsizesexy
Whoa!!! So many new followers and connections!!! I guess it is time to do a reintroduction post! ❤❤❤ My name is Prissy Missy, and I am a plus size influencer, pin up, and body love advocate! I have been internationally published as a pin up and have modeled for small boutiques and photographers. I talk a lot about body love and also mental illness and chronic illness. I want to normalize and change the dialogues about all of it! I have a quirky style and love to share my quirky, fun, and thrifty finds. As I am starting to finally feel better, you will be seeing a lot more travel posts and fun from me, and I am super excited to be out and about more! So, that is me. I would love to hear more about you too, so please feel free to tell me something unique about you! * Hat from @apricotlanepinecrest *Dress by @torrid
When picking my summer wardrobe, shoes are super important. However, I am super picky about my shoes. They have to be cute, but they also have to be comfortable. These polka dot espadrilles that I found at the @shoewarehousesale have been one of my go to pairs this summer. They look great with my regular summer outfits and my pin up dresses too!!! What do you look for in your perfect summer shoes? #gifted #shoewarehousesale
Let's talk glow!!! I finally decided to do the whole preset thing all my IG friends are always talking about in order to streamline my feed. Of course, I couldn't do the normal thing with presets, so I searched and searched until I found something that glowed!!! I figured it went well with my message of growth, loving yourself, and glowing up! For all of you who do IG as an influencer, what are some ways you keep true to yourself even when trying to fit into the mainstream? *Shoes #gifted from @shoewarehousesale *Bombshell Jeans by @torridfashion * Top by @lanebryant
Taking time to relax when life gets busy is a must, so I have been listening to a lot of podcasts lately. My new favorite is Life is Short with Justin Long on @wonderymedia He has great guests and I love the tone of this podcast. What are you listening to right now? To find out more about Life is Short, check my link in bio! #ad #lifeisshort #hbtlifeisshort
Now that it finally drying out, I am trying out all my summer shoes! I think my shoe theme this summer is the espadrille! I love this Ralph Lauren take that I got at the @shoewarehousesale in Cleveland. I think I may need to go back for more! #sponsored #shoewarehousesale #espadrilles #clevelandblogger
One of the things I love most about where I live now is the amount of natural and green spaces. I love the gardens and hiking trails. One of my goals this summer has been to enjoy those spaces more this summer. I also want to work on getting back in shape for hard hikes again as it is a favorite thing to do. Unfortunately, having bronchitis last month and all the rain we have had stalled that dream a bit. However, it is a new month, and I am still determined. What goals do you have for this month?

I think I might be addicted to shoes! Shoes shown from @toms
With the right shoes, you can do anything! . . . Loving all my shoes from the @shoewarehousesale #ad
You know what a good outfit needs? Great accessories! I love my collection of shoes and bags to add a little pop to everything I wear. Speaking of shoes, did you know the @shoewarehousesale is going on right now in #Cleveland ? They have lots of shoes in which to choose, like these cute wedge espadrilles by Ralph Lauren. These are so comfy by the way! What is your favorite summer accessory? #ad
If you read my blog post earlier this spring, you know I love florals! As summer officially begins, I am definitely carrying that floral love into summer! How cute is this @torridfashion dress?
How is this for a girl gang? I love this edit from @roseindustrialangharshman at @better studio with @deedeedivino ! The amazing Luscious D is the owner of @loving_your_reflection and one of the most amazing people I have gotten to know in this past year. She puts together photo shoots and events that promote body positivity and healing. While I have come a long way in my journey of self love, her events cement it in stone. I absolutely love her and am so glad to have her as a friend! . . . . . . . . . . . #dopecurvyladyalert #plussizebeauties #plussizedivas #photooftheday #instamood #inspiration #fullofcurves #curvyconfidence #beautybeyondsize #teambodylove #plussizemodel #glamqueen #bodyacceptance #womenempowerment #beautyredefined #plusmodel #psblogger #cleblogger #clevelandblogger #instalove #plus_isamust #curvyfashionista

Good or evil? Speaking of good and evil, have any of you caught Good Omens yet on @amazonprimevideo ? This Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett book has been recently brought to life on Amazon video, and if you are a fan of sci-fi/fantasy, you are definitely gonna wanna watch! Basically the end is here and an Angel and Demon are our last hope. This unlikely duo teams up to stop it. How does it turn out? Well, you are just gonna have to watch Good Omens @goodomensprime to find out! Have you seen it? What do you think? Check my link in bio for more!

Do you know what the best revenge to your haters is? It is living your best life and being happy. While I love being able to do what I do, it isn't without having haters. Every time I post a body positive post, I get flooded with plastic surgeons and "body coaches" that want to "fix" me. It kinda makes me mad for my friends on here that are personal trainers and not shady body coaches. Those people are awesomesauce! It takes thick skin, and it has taken a while to develop that thick skin. I am proud of how far I have come in my body love journey. Despite a lot of the issues I have, especially from dealing with my health issues the past few years, my love for my body keeps growing. Don't let haters get you down. Love yourself. Adjust your crown and walk tall like the royalty you are!!! Photo by @victordevilbliss
Have you ever struggled with your body? My journey to body confidence didn't start all at once. Take this photo for example. @victordevilbliss did this beautiful shoot with me, and when it was done, I realized I wasn't as comfortable in my wardrobe as I originally thought. I put the photos away and looked at them later. That was when I realized that I DID look amazing. It was my first time wearing a jumpsuit, and yes, it showed a lot of my tummy. However. it looked good. Sometimes we are a bit too critical of ourselves and it prevents us from loving ourselves. If you struggle with loving yourself, I encourage you to do this one thing: look at yourself in the mirror daily and find one thing you love. Do that every day and you will find your confidence grow as you keep discovering more of your beauty.
Here is to a fabulous summer!!! Happy June!
Do you prefer the pool or the beach? I definitely love the beach, but living in the midwest, I will take whatever pool I can find. I bought this suit last summer at @torridfashion for a #yinzbopo meetup. However, my anxiety got the best of me due to the idea of meeting a whole bunch of new people. Anxiety is a jerk like that. I did manage to get to a meetup and never looked back. I have made some incredible friends through this incredible body positive group. Hanging out with like minded people only helps lift you up!!! Body Positive groups are popping up all over the country. If you see an event, I highly suggest going. For me, it was definitely finding my people.
BODY CONFIDENCE: Me and a swimsuit. Two things I never felt that went together until a few years ago when I started seeing plus size models wearing two piece suits. After seeing how amazing they looked, I wanted that for myself. I got my first two piece after my youngest daughter was born and was hooked. However, even after all the other photoshoots I have done, the idea of being photographed in one terrified me...until last summer. Last summer, I let my partner take pictures of me while at @conneautlakepark We used the waterpark as our back drop to take some amazing photos. I am a bit sad that it took this long to be comfortable in a swimsuit, especially a two-piece. This summer, I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. Wear the suit. Wear the tank top or a crop top. Try the short shorts and raise your head high at anyone that tries to tear you down!!! You are beautiful!!!
What did you do over the holiday weekend? We spent time with friends and recovered from last week's travels. Photo by @ivoryrosephotography123
