You, the readers, who send me encouraging emails, post amazing comments on my Instagram, and share my posts on Facebook. This year, I've found my niche and my voice. I've found that happy space between sharing info, posting cute clothes, and working with sponsors (without looking like sell-out). So, let's re-cap some of the most FAB moments from 2016!

Next up, the 'SHOW YOUR ARMS' campaign reached more people than I could imagine. When I started posting Outfit of the Day photos, I was so concerned on finding the cutest looks and feeling comfortable putting my image on the internet to be judged. I just wore what made me feel good. I created the SHOW YOUR ARMS campaign as a way to build a stronger online community with my readers. Women, big and small, continue to contact me applauding the campaign. And, yes, the Show Your Arms campaign is coming back for Summer 2017, and it's gonna be even BETTER!

I decided a to travel a lot more in 2016. I visited Chicago and fell in love. But my trip to NYC to attend CurvyCon was my favorite trip of the year! Attending CurvyCon really helped me in so many areas: Self-Esteem, Blogging, and Networking. This was the first trip where I traveled with a fellow blogger bae (check out The Fat Girl of Fashion), stayed in a Five Star hotel, and traveled just for the sake of the blog. It was an amazing experience meeting so many fashionable plus size women and interacting with business aimed for my plus size dollars. Shout out to Cece Olisa and Chastity Garner for creating this event. And, yes, I'll be in the building for 2017. Get your tix here!

I've given y'all 45 looks this year! 48!!! DUDE! That's almost a look a week! From all the looks I've presented, the one above has been your FAVORITE! I vowed to step out of my comfort zone this year, step up the photography, and collab with brands. I hit ALL those marks. Shout out to my photographers Toni Denisa and Patrick Webster. Also, special shout out to my blogger bestie, KayElle, we used to use out iPhones to shoot outfit looks. Listen, you gotta make it happen until you cam make it happen!

Oh the COLLABS I've had! Listen, when your focus is to be a full-time blogger (meaning the blog pays my bills) you gotta collaborate with sponsors. My first MAJOR collaboration of the year came from Nashville Fashion Week and The Opry Mills Mall. OMG! A plus-size blogger representing Nashville Fashion Week for the MALL . . . PINCH ME! Major shout-out to the staff at Nashville Fashion Week for their continued support of my website. I truly believe in local fashion coming from Nashville (be they independent designers and mall retailers). Shopping local keeps money in the community and builds a more stylish city.

I got featured on BUZZFEED! I know, right! A simple selfie got me noticed by Buzzfeed UK and I was included with 10 other ladies in an article about lipstick. I was SUPER surprised about this one. But, it continued to encourage me to keep posting and continue creating. Fab Glance is here to encourage you to do fashion your way! Thanks Buzzfeed!

Shout out to the Sponsors! Yes, this year I had more post sponsorships than ever. This year I worked with Opry Mills Mall, Dollar General, Groupon, The Body Shop, O'more College, Bolthouse Farms, Pink Blush Boutique, Styles Boutique, Limonada Couture, Smile Brilliant, City Winery, Art Institute Nashville, and a couple more (just check out my PARTNER page). Oh yeah, if your brand fits my readers, send me an email. Let's partner for 2017!
So, that's the wrap-up for 2016! I can truly say that this year was one of my FAVORITE years blogging. I really accomplished so much, much more than can be put in a blog post. The plans for 2017 are even more banana-sandwich-crazy! Guys, I don't think you're ready for what I have up my sleeve! Just make sure you are following me on the newsletter and the socials: Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest.
Thank you, SO MUCH, for each click, like, and share.
You make it possible for me to live my dream everyday!
