Hi, I’m Carla! I’m a plus-size fashion blogger with a passion for sharing curvy style, beauty, and lifestyle favorites.My goal is to empower women to feel confident so they can be present with the people around them.
After years of low self-esteem and an eating disorder, I finally ditched diet culture and found peace with food. I started taking care of my mental health and paying attention to how different foods make me feel. Additionally, rather than squeezing into clothes that I didn’t love, I learned how to find clothes that actually fit my body. I quickly realized how impactful it was to wear clothes that not only fit well, but I liked! This confidence has carried over and helped me grow in both personal relationships and in my career. With my online content, I hope to give other women the ability to find confidence through clothing and self-care.
I believe that the choice of clothing you put on everyday has the power to change your life.
Outside of fashion and beauty, I love to travel to new places, read, garden, paint, and cook. My husband, Max, and I also spend plenty of time slowly updating our forever home in the Washington, D.C. suburbs.
I DRINK ICED COFFEE YEAR ROUND - EVEN IN THE SNOW.
AS A KID, I DID 4-H AND RAISED PIGS IN MY BACKYARD.
I LOVE GARDENING BUT ALL I’VE MANAGED TO GROW IS TOMATOES AND CUCUMBERS.
OUR WEDDING WAS SCHEDULED IN APRIL 2020 SO WE ENDED UP HAVING THREE WEDDINGS!
I STARTED MY FIRST BUSINESS IN HIGH SCHOOL - A SOFT CARAMEL BUSINESS NAMED “CARLA’S CARAMELS”
