So glad you're here.Hey babe, & welcome to The Candid Millennial! My name is Mary and I am passionate about inspiring the modern woman in finding beauty in the booty and simply loving herself! Aside from sharing outfits that flatter your gorgeous shape, I share my experiences in career, travel, fitness, beauty, & more!
I’ve struggled with finding clothes that flatter my figure for my ENTIRE life! Sometimes my “usual” size is too small, and other times it’s too big.
What’s even more challenging, is finding a dress that fits me all the way around (without being too short in the back and too long in the front). After learning I wasn’t the only woman who faces this challenge, I wanted to do something about it!
My goal with TCM is to take the guesswork out of shopping for clothes and eliminate disappointment after trying on clothes at stores for HOURS and leaving with nothing.
I genuinely want to help YOU – the woman who also struggles with finding cute outfits that flatter your beautiful body.
Every outfit I post about on Instagram or on this blog is built to flatter the hourglass figure or pear-shaped woman.
This week, my first Podcast interview was published on the Self Aware Millennial podcast, and I’m SO excited to share this! You can find it on iTunes or at the link below.
In this podcast, Liv and I dive deeper into the topic of anxiety. This is the most vulnerable I have ever been on the internet, but I feel so passionately about this issue and have felt so enlightened recently after learning more about it.
It first hit me when I sat down in my assigned seat at my college graduation ceremony. Bright lights, thousands of people, sweaty palms and a thousand words a minute running through my mind.
I ran to the bathroom, looked in the mirror, and wasn’t sure who was looking back at me. I was sick, anxious, unsure of what was next.
Then it happened again. On set, at my first job, filming a car dealership commercial. After realizing it wasn’t going to go away, I sought out help and learned what I was going through was “normal”.
It disappeared for a while, leaving me alone for a few seasons. But then it made it’s way back. And this time it was bigger, stronger than before.
Secrets The Vine, Cancun, Mexico
Last week, I was blessed with yet another tropical vacation to one of my favorite places to relax: Mexico. From Dallas, it’s an easy two-hour flight, making it a simple travel day typically resulting in champagne by 2PM. This was probably the tenth all-inclusive resort I’ve stayed at, so I’m pretty much a pro at making the most of this kind of resort!
Secrets The Vine is an adults only resort that has 3 pools, a large beach and seven restaurants to choose from. There are daily events such as mixology classes, wine tasting, dancing, water aerobics, yoga, tabata, cooking classes & more.
The beach has several water sports you can take advantage of like parasailing or jet skiing. There are also plenty of chairs and umbrellas to lay on the beach if you prefer. I always stay by the pool but will make my way down to the beach a few times throughout the day to swim in the waves!
The wi-fi is FREE (hence my constant Insta updates) and the rooms include an iPad type device that you can order room service on, check out the daily events, and much more. This hotel is truly top-notch, boasts modern design and makes it very easy for incredibly busy people to relax with convenience and incredible service.
