So i know i have been gone for way too long but last i posted i had twins. Well me this lady here has been busy. I had another child! No i did not have twins again but a single boy. So now i have 3 under 1 years old which is very intense. I sometime dont know how to pee alone let alone anything else but im making it work.In total i have 7 kids now. Yes 7 that is not a typo. I have 2 twin sets and 3 singles.Now it is hard keeping my mind and body to my liking and confidence high,So i will keep righting and blogging to give my person experiences as a mother of so many and most important a woman.I am more than just a mother or wife. I am a woman of substance and interest outside my daily life and kids. I am also about to start vlogging so i will inform everyone accordingly.I am working my way to be Audio engineer so right now im a student, mom,wife and trying to stay an individual.. Thank you everyone for the read and support. Anyone else with tips and trick for a regular mom let me know i have open ear.
So i did a beach swim suit shoot for a local blogger Sarah Jane Morales and it was an experience.
I never thought as a plus size person that i would ever be asked to do such a thing so i was excited and curious to say the least. The instructions were simple come in a suit ready to shoot.I have been sporting my crochet suit from Torrid 2 seasons now. I know i should buy another but i love it.
What i can say from experience it was nice to take the pictures were the people knew i am fat, so i will in my pictures look fat but that doesnt mean they wont look good. I didnt suck in my stomach or try to find angles to flatten my body but i posed how i felt most confident.
It is weird to just accept a picture where your arms are big and stomach not flat but that is what being plus size is. I have a stomach and it hangs.
I will give more details later on this promo shoot because its for a plus size weekend at our local beach which is in Galveston tx and i think loads of ladies would love a judgement free atmosphere.
I didnt compare my body or stomach hang to any of the other ladies and neither did they. Instead we cheered for eachother and gave advice and it was Wonderful guys!I hope you like the pictures but they are not the official ones. I just was excited to share.
If you click the link you will see the other models Ge, Zanchelle,Chassidy, Alice and sarah and myself plus so many more will be at event July 14, and these ladies are so very lovely! You dont want to miss it

Fellow model Zanchelle i believe took this one.
So i dont know if any other big girls like me have wanted tights. I have seen girls on multiple occasions wearing thigh high tights just holding on to magic feels like. They look cute and i was jealous. So i began a search. I looked at torrid tights and as much as i like torrid as soon as i out them on ams stood up they rolled down. It was pretty disheartening. So i searched the internet in my quest and found Kixies. Now spending $30 on tights…Yea that took me a while to finally say fine i want to try it.
Guys let me tell you i did not regret it. First time i ordered they stayed up but just one day so i talk to owner and she was such a big help. I figured i needed biggest size because usually i am but no i got a C instead of D and whoa.
I am a waitress and let me tell you they stay! Stayed up a whole shift and i wore them to mardi gras and night out . I love them so much i just ordered new ones.If you order and put code Raquel you get $10 so if you have been on fence try it.
Also if anyone else knows some good tights let me in the loop! I have been on a style journey and really trying to look how i want to and no that doesnt mean thinner to fit the norm clothes per say but be my big fabulous self and wear those same clothes and feel fine. I do acknowledge many might not find it cute like i do but its okay im not here to impress everyone, i am here to be happy!So i uploaded a picture, not my best but just so show other girls

Okay guys i know i have been missing in action. After i came back from my vacation i discovered i was pregnant with twins! Yes my second set, so now i am not just plus size but Plus size and Pregnant. It has been hard adjustment but the journey is almost over. Im 31 weeks now with two boys and excited to see them.
Pregnant and Plus size has so many more issues. People commenting on my weight more than ever. On how i am carrying and my weight affecting my sons. I have not gained one pound. I cut out sodas and started eating early and it really helped me maintain. Its okay to gain some weight but for me i am already pretty big. I have no issues with blood pressure, Cholestrol, diabetes or any health issues for those who always have some unkind words and my babies are measuring perfectly healthy.
Overall any woman big ,small or otherwise should be supported while pregnant and it does not give people the right to just say any unfiltered thing. I was blessed to be able to have a baby after many years struggling with infertility with my new husband so all the ups and downs are so very worth it. I hope all moms, adoptive, ivf or however you choose to start your families are also treated with nothing but respeect because we owe no one an explaination.
I recently vacation in South padre and to start off right i bought a new swim suit! I got a red one with polka dots from torrid but it had way to much padding for me which was so sad , It was so cute. I was happy to get another torrid suit that it like a halter top and see through skirt. I can’t say enough how much I love it! I also got some new shorts and glasses and panties if im honest.
I did get some judgemental stares but I was having way to much fun to worry. A crop top and shorts on a big girl! yes and it was great and I felt awesome. I noticed most of women giving me funny looks were other big girls which is sad. They should be more on my side than anyone but I hope one day we can support eachother more.
Any who I hope everyone shops around and fund their perfect suit. The one that makes you feel perfect and sexy without worrying about judgement.
Will I forever be the weirdo. Always saying something that makes everybody stop and make them look at me crazy?
The answer is yes! I have learned to embrace it because I can’t change it. I have tried I won’t lie. I am more comfortable in my skin being this awkward inappropriate mess!
People know what to expect from me by now and what can I say nothing like being yourself. Anyone else in my Universe who just as awkward give me a shout out because I’ll love to know im not alone in this weirdo life. The video is from snapchat but whoa the filters are so darling hahah! That is me on my way to work and yes with flower cat ears because I’m not normal hear me roar!
