  • New look and attitude coming for LOS

    Okay, so it's time for a fresh new look on LOS... I am bored to tears with the current site. I am ready for something, fresh, new, and sassy! We are ditching the politically correct phrasing and we are going full throttle sassy. If it offends anyone that is our customer, it is not meant to. It's simply to throw up our hands, let down our hair, and throw caution to the wind. Any of my friends will tell you that I am a total smart-ass and it's time to reflect that in the site. So, for you skinny girls out there that either work your ass off to be skinny or if you were just blessed with good genes and a fast metabolism, you will now be referred to as "skinny bitches" on the site. It is a term of endearment so embrace it. Now, for you girls that have curves we are no longer "plus size", it's a stupid term, I hate it! I have to use it on the site because of Google, search terms, SEO value, blah, blah, blah... But from here on out you will be referred to as "big mamas". If you got the curves flaunt them, be happy in the skin you are in, and have a little attitude to go with it. One of our clients who I chatted with on the phone would like it to be "big mama with flare", it's too wordy for me, but the flare is implied. I am searching like crazy for some fun {and anti-frumpy} clothing options for you big mamas out there. I've got some fabulous new items that you can rock your curves in coming from England, so shi-shi, right? If you have any suggestions on any other big mama brands out there, stateside or abroad give me a shout out and I will look into it. So stay tuned for the new look, we hope to have it up and running in the next month or two!

  • The Truth Behind This Flower Power Blogger

    I own a company that sells fitness apparel, how did I get into this business?  It's not for my love of fitness, I can tell you that straight up.  In fact, while I do exercise on a regular basis I am far from a fitness addict.  Those endorphins you hear about have just never impacted me I guess.  I force myself to workout and dread it almost everyday.  I make my friends workout with me, mostly because without them I would be bored to tears and bail as soon as something became even somewhat strenuous. I thought owning a fitness apparel company would make me passionate about exercise, nope, hasn't happened.  I do look awfully cute when I workout though {minus the bright red face} and I've got more sports bras than the average girl and they all hold my girls in place while I sweat.

    The items I carry on the site are ones that I would truly workout in, every item on here is tried and true.  If I haven't tried it, my girlfriends have {for example my D cups will not work in the Handful bra} or my sister has tested out the plus size goods for me. In fact many of the photos on the site are of my girlfriends and my sister is in a few shots as well.

    One of the features on the site is the blog.  As you can see I haven't blogged in over seven months.  I guess you just get caught up in work, family, and everyday life to keep up with the blogging aspect.  My SEO guy tells me he can have someone write blog posts for me... I can't go there.  A year or two ago I agreed to that, once, just once.  The writer submitted the post to me and it was all about the correct running shoe and to check out our selection.  I informed her {not so nicely} that we did not carry running shoes!  What the?  So, I have not hired a writer for the blog, and have dropped the ball myself.  However, today is the day, I will start blogging on here.  I will plug the site, of course, that is the mission after all.  But in order to have anything interesting to say I'm just going to start rambling about what I'm interested in.

    First topic... I am now 40 and intend to get serious about my health. I have two daughters and want to be able to keep up with them and live a long and healthy life so I can enjoy them as long as possible. In the past year I have lost about 15 pounds and am now about 4 pounds away from what I lied to the DMV about on my drivers license.  I'm hoping by the end of next month to be truthful on my license, but not for too long, I'd love to drop well below that number. We've got a wedding in the family coming up in a little under two months, so it's time to get serious! I will not be in a zillion photos and be embarrassed, I already bought a killer dress that is just a smidge too small.  I WILL rock this dress in less than two months, and I WILL be slimmer and toner. Let the journey begin...
