Something to Chirp About: Nordstroms Rack


Hello CurvieBirdies!  Last week, I did some light shopping.  I was looking for a new top.  Well instead of finding a new top, I found something else all together! If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, then you would know that I found 2 really cute blazers at Nordstroms Rack.  Both blazers together were $24.24!!  Now you cant tell me I didn’t do some serious shopping!! See for yourself!!


This hot Royal blue blazer was $13.55!!



This cotton grey blazer was $9.35!!! 

Score!!!!!  I am so glad I decided to stop in Nordstroms Rack that day.  I love to find amazing deals!  Its like a rush to me.

Do you shop at Nordstroms Rack? If so what kind of deals have you found?

Bronner Brothers Hair Show

Well Happy Monday ladies and gents.  This weekend was a ball for me.  I had the chance to go to the Bronner Brothers Hair Show with my Aunt Lynette.  I have never been to one before, and I think that I will be returning in the future.  There are so many things to see and buy at a fraction of the retail prices!!



So I found these jeans that are made just for all CurvieBirdies!!  They are sizes 4-18. But let me tell you, I love these jeans!!!  They are super comfy.  Also, they do run a it on the larger size.  I was able to fit a size 18 and I wear a 20-22 in jeans.  My beautiful aunt tried on a pair as well, and she is a regular size 6.


As you can see, she had on a size 4 I the jeans.




See!!  Cute right?  I know.  I so need these jeans in every style!



I watched a few fashion/hair shows.




I met the lovely ladies of Double Dip Glam  Squad.  These plus sized beauties were beating up so faces ya’ll.  And they are local, so I hope to use them soon!!!


And I found this lovely piece of eye candy!!  Oh Lawd!!!  Please don’t tell my Mister, but FINE cannot describe this guy!!

So I obviously had a great time. So yay Bronner Brothers!!!  So have you ever been to a Bronner Brothers event?  Would you go again?

CurvieBirdie Watch: Melissa McCarthy

Happy Friday everybody!!  Today, I want to talk about the FABULOUS Melissa McCarthy!  As some of you all know, she is the star in the new movie "Identify Theft."  This CurvieBirdie is so fricken funny; I don't know how anyone cannot love her!  She was also the hilarious lady from Bridesmaids and the show Mike and Molly.

So last week when Identity Theft opened at the box office, the critic Rex Reed made some horrible remarks about Melissa.  In his review, Rex said "McCarthy is a "gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success."  Also, he called her a tractor-sized, humongous, obese and a female hippo!

Are you kidding me?  He has the nerve to speak on her weight?  Have y'all seen him?

I know there is a lot we can say about this picture, and he is not a small dude either!!  Apparently, Jenny McCarthy and the director of this latest film both have spoken out and it is not good for Rex!!

Bridesmaids director Paul Feig tweeted, "I cordially invite Mr. Rex Reed to go f--- himself."  YES!!  Say that!  It is a shame that someones talent can be down-played and criticized due to their weight.  Size-ism is real people!!  I do commend those that have spoken out about this.

Melissa is a very funny woman, and she is definitely a CurvieBirdie worth supporting!!! 

Do you think Melissa McCarthy is funny?  Have you seen her new movie? Did you love her in Bridesmaids?
