This set features me in a very sexy, sparkly silver, slinky, strapless dress. I am adored in glamourous bling from head to toe, even my shoes and thong have some bling going on. I had so much fun with this sultry set.My sex-kitten dial was set on 11!! lol I felt like an old school film star like Marilyn Monroe or Jayne Mansfield. This photo set was my tribute to the classy, glamourous goddesses of yesteryear, the pin-ups, the starlets,the sexpots and sex-kittens. I believe that is what women should look like today...WOMEN!! I love being a woman and being feminine and dressing like one and it shows in this set. I hope all of you enjoy this set as much I did making it. :)

My boyfriend, for lack of a better term, (he is not my favorite person in the world right now) wants to take me out for my birthday. That is a very sweet gesture and I do appreciate it but part of me doesn't feel like going out for several reasons actually. My eye is very irritated and is driving me bonkers for one. Since our "falling out", I am not feeling very romantic or cozy/cuddly. I am still hurt and I am not the type of person who can just sweep things under the rug. I am doing my best to make the best out of a bad situation but sometimes that ain't enough. I just don't know.Besides,it doesn't look like such a great day out either. It is cold out presumably since it is December.
Also, I don't know if I can find what I want to wear. I do realize I have a closet crammed to the gills with clothes, but I don't have a lot of winter outfits suitable for a nice dinner out. I can wear a dressy sweater and nice pants but I am in a dress mood. Laying in bed last night , awake by the sound of LOUD , annoying snoring, (lol) I took the time to go through my closet in my head and decided on a turquoise velvet ruffle dress. It is a gorgeous dress and looks festive. It has short sleeves though, but I assume the restaurant will have the heat on and won't sit us near the door. The perfect shoes for such an occasion are my black and turquoise velvet slip-on heels. They are stunningly beautiful as shoes go!! I was so excited when I finally bought them. I just hope I can find everything in time for dinner. My clothes/shoes tend to wander away from the closet a lot of times. I should go look for them now but again I am just not feeling like moving. Can we say LAZY??!! It is MY birthday and I am entitled to BE anyway I feel, at least for the next 24 hrs.!! lol
We are going to Raffaele's, my favorite Italian restaurant where I hope to indulge (or overindulge) in amazing garlic dinner rolls with ranch dressing, (really good) salad, yummy Veal Parmesan (my fave dish) with a side of garlic butter pasta and to top it all off with either cannolli or their sinfully good almond cake. (either way I am good) Well, I was just informed that I better start getting ready. God, he knows me sooo well!! lol Yes, I am a woman and I take an eternity to get ready but hey, I am worth the wait!! ;)

I drank a large glass of milk hoping it would relax me. I don't like it warm. I have been catching up on my Facebook games to kill time. Bed was so nice and warm and comfy. It will now be cold and empty as it is almost 7 am and my beau has left for work already. I HATE sleeping alone!! I really do. I love cuddling and snuggling!! (especially if you are warm natured) Well, I have been up for 3 1/2 hours (out of bed) so perhaps I should at least try to go to sleep again. Well,if I cannot sleep I will be back... pleasant dreams xoxo Chanel

After my father passed away in 2004, holidays took a very different turn for my mother and me. They were very quiet and not fully "celebrated" like in years passed. It was not the same. I knew my mom lost her Christmas spirit after my dad died. I think she missed him until the day she died in 2007. I know I miss them both very much still and feel like part of me died with them. However, their memory never will. Anyway, before I get too morbidly maudlin, let me get back to my original subject of holidays,Christmas in particular.
I love gifts!! Giving them gives me such a thrill,but I admit I really love getting them too!! What can I say?? I love to be spoiled and pampered...something that sadly, hasn't happened in a real long time.
Anyway, Like I was saying, after the passing of my dad, things changed in my family. Long gone were the days of hours spent Christmas morning unwrapping gifts and making a wrapping paper mess all around the Christmas tree. The big holiday meals were also too much of a bother now. I don't know if I had mentioned it or not, but when I was 18, my immediate family moved away from NJ to NC, (where I have resided the past 23 years) leaving all my extended family behind. (half-brothers, sisters-in-law,nieces,nephews,aunts,cousins etc.) This changed our holiday celebrations from a crowded house of people down to 3 people and maybe a couple friends. I missed those large family gatherings and I guess I still do. Well, my mom was growing older and more forgetful, so holiday shopping was difficult for her. I remember having to show her what I wanted and then seeing whatever I picked out in the cart when we would go checkout. Don't get me wrong...I was grateful for whatever she bought me but it is nice to be surprised. So that pretty much ended my surprises!! Soon after that, mom and I just didn't bother with really celebrating Xmas and then she died.
My ex-boyfriend really didn't have a clue when it came to gifts. No wonder he needed his mother's help!! I am sorry but when you are in your mid to late 30's and you can't buy your girlfriend a nice gift, you have something wrong with you!!It isn't exactly rocket science!! lol
His mother even bought me nicer gifts then he did. His mom got me an unusual gold necklace and pj's with snowflakes on them and for my birthday she got me a pink Winnie the Pooh hoodie that I absolutely loved!!! She was worried I wouldn't like it because she is the type of person that believes only children should like cartoon characters!! Her son was into comic books and that really grinded her gears!! She was always trying to get him to get rid of them or sell them and he had an entire room full!!
Anyway, for my birthday and Christmas presents he gave me a box full of comics for one!! I didn't even like comics, but in fairness, he had some cool titles in there about rock stars that I liked. He also bought me an ear bud thingy for my cell phone which I think I only used once because I don't drive and talk on my phone normally. I also got a Barbie doll case, I guess because I collected Barbies at the time. (but I didn't play with them). A Mickey Mouse beach towel. (that one still puzzles me) and a Winnie the pooh poster. I know he tried with the poster but he knew I liked Pooh collectibles and wasn't keen on posters because I did not want to hang any on the wall.
I don't know about him though because even on Valentine's Day, I got weird things....a Curious George dvd (I liked George when I was a kid) and not the big cartoon movie that came out a few years back...it was a 20 minute cartoon based on one of his books. He also bought me an African violet which at first I thought was weird until he explained and then I loved it. He said roses/cut flowers end up dying in a week or so and this way, I would have a pretty flower that would last. Pretty smart for a guy who acted like he never met me when it came to buying me presents. I believe he didn't even giftwrap my presents either and that is a pet-peeve of mine. Another one is last minute shoppers...people who wait until Dec. 24 to do their shopping!!! To me that says, I have to buy you a gift but you just aren't important enough for me to put any real thought into it. UGH!!!
And my current beau, has never bought me anything for my b-day or Christmas or any other holiday for that matter. Maybe I am spoiled or have been in the past but I miss wondering what someone got me for a present and tearing into a nicely wrapped package. I was hoping that my friend and I would exchange gifts this year,but I am doubtful. As I stated earlier, I do have LOTS of things and for the past few years, I haven't really asked for anything, other than the occasional DVD or book. And this year, there are a few things that not only do I want but that I actually do need. I won't go into them all because it would bore you...some are very trivial things like socks. lol
But the one thing, I really want more than anything is a new digital camera. I informed Santa what it was that I wanted and even left the website open to the exact one I want too!! http://store.kodak.com/store/ekconsus/en_US/pd/C195_Digital_Camera/productID.201200600 (in purple) AND last night I was so tickled because I found an ad for Kodak and it stated it was having a big holiday sale on every item online. I was on their website just the day before because I received an email newsletter from them, giving me a special code for 30% off anything online. The camera I wanted was already marked down $10 but was still a bit more expensive than my local store. However, I noticed free shipping AND a 2 G memory card with purchase, as well as a free photo album. Not bad,eh? So I visited their site again and the camera is now marked down $20, which makes it .05 cheaper than my local store and I still have an additional 30% off too!! So all excited I planted the seed again today and still nothing, no reaction!!
I sincerely hope that Santa reads this and takes pity on me!! I WANT THAT CAMERA!!!
I have been good,Santa...really I have. Ok, I can hear the roar of laughter.
Pllleeaaasssseeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pretty please with cherries on top and whipped cream and even sprinkles!! Ok, this is beneath even ME. I hate groveling!!! lol But I still really want that purple camera!! Oh,Lordy I sense men with big white coats and butterfly nets coming to pay me a visit and I don't think they are coming for tea and cucumber sandwiches either!! lol
If you are unfortunate enough to still be reading this, I thank you and wish you a very Happy Holidays!! Until next time...Blogs & Kisses, Chanel

Do you know what I found??? I will tell you.....
There were a ton of "just for fun" type ads = one night stands/friends with benefits
However, these guys posting these ads were not true FA's....they were all just curious about BBW's and always wondered what it would be like to have sex with one. Sorry, guys but we are not all a ride at Disneyland!!!! I could not believe that not one man who wanted hot sex wanted it because of their true love for big women. It was either mostly out of curiosity or they were FA's ashamed of their preferences!! Now I realize there are still a bunch of guys hiding out in the FA closet but I could not believe how many were ashamed and how ashamed they were!!!
Moving on, I decided to read the ads that stated they were looking for friends or whatever happens to the ones actually looking for a relationship. Since these ads turned up when I searched "bbw", I was eager to see what kind of men liked bbw's near me. In the past, I had used bbw dating sites and I had NEVER found a FA any closer than an hour and a half away..most were 3 hours away!! So this was a bit exciting to me to see guys a bit closer to home, that actually liked bigger women. So on I read....and what I read really got me going and not in a good way either. I kept on reading and one after the other, all said the same thing , "Sorry, No BBW's." WTF??!!! I couldn't believe what I was reading.
I know men have always made jokes about "no fat chicks" but my God, I never expected someone to put the equivalent on a personal ad!!! That was so insulting!! Imagine if I put in an ad "Sorry no small Dicks". Men would be outraged!!! Just because the term BBW is more mainstream nowadays does not mean it is ok to use it to insult us. One guy went as far to write, "I have been out with all types of women, short,tall, young ,old, redheads,blondes but please no BBW's. I know that sounds shallow but I am not into them." Yes, it does sound shallow and mean!! I wasn't even looking for a guy but this still angered me!!
What ever happened to not judging a book by it's cover, or beauty is in the eye of the beholder,or if you don't have anything nice to say, do not say anything at all??!! What about inner beauty?? Us bbw's are more than just bigger women, ya know? We have feelings, we have interests and are intelligent and sweet and caring...you get the picture. I guess it all boiled down to the bottom line that really got to me...we were good enough to be fucked, in secret that is BUT we are not good enough to date or be seen in public!!
If someone wrote they have no interest in old people or short people etc. I think that is unfair because you cannot always change the hand you are dealt. I am barely 5' 3" and I always wish I were taller but there really isn't much I can do about that aside from wearing high heels all the time. I also am almost 41 yrs. old. Do I wish that maybe I was still in my 30's?? Yes, but as far as I know there is no fountain of youth and if I want to stay young, I just have to take good care of myself and keep a young outlook, like I feel I already do. I think it is unfair to single out a group of people on a personal ad....like if I wrote " Sorry no Italians" (or any other race/nationality), not only is it racist it is rude and just plain wrong. Btw, I would NEVER say anything like that!! Even if someone wrote in an ad "People with big ears/noses etc. do not apply." I find that awful.
To not like someone because of something that they cannot change, to me is wrong. Now, I know you are probably thinking people can lose weight and yes, that is true but just how easy is it?? It is a struggle and does not exactly happen overnight. People sometimes have to have surgery in order to lose weight, so it is not just something as easy as say changing your haircolor. I think people need to see the person underneath...underneath all the fat, or behind the big nose, or beyond the skincolor or boob size or whatever. And as my bf, so wisely pointed out, if one is so busy chasing one thing, they may miss out on something else, something totally unexpected and wonderful. And I couldn't agree more...if a guy is busy searching for this perfect blonde and passes up the chance to even know a brunette or readhead, he may miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime. That blonde or redhead may be the perfect person for them, more so then some random blonde that is boring as hell but fits the bill because she has blonde hair. I guess I am saying to be open in your options ...don't limit yourself. I guess that is why I am bi-sexual!! lol
I understand it is not everyone's cup of tea to like big chicks and that is their prerogative but they don't need to be mean or advertise that fact to the world. It is ok to wear an "I Love Skinny Girls" t-shirt but the whole "No fat-chicks" thing..No,no,no!! Have a little class, for heaven's sake!! Maybe think about someone else's feelings before tearing them down. Maybe there is something I don't like in the opposite sex...hell, we all have likes and dislikes, turn-on's and turn-offs but do I advertise what I don't like physically?? No, I really don't or try not to and I especially wouldn't write it out in an ad. I can see publishing the fact you do not like smokers or people who don't like animals etc. but leave the hatred for bbw's out of it, ok? Or else next thing you know there will be a sudden upheaval in women's personal ad's stating "Men with small penises need not apply." and we don't really need to go there do we???
Until next time....XOXO Chanel

Well, I guess it is now official...the holiday season is now officially underway. Only 28 more days until Xmas. Only 24 more until my 41st birthday!! I can hardly believe I am going to be that old. I hardly feel it. I guess there are days when I do feel my age slowly creeping up on me and wish I didn't. lol I must say being born so close to Xmas, I always got jipped when it came to presents...I always managed to get that lumped together "combination Xmas/birthday" present. As a child, I hated it but as I got older, it usually meant I got better, more expensive presents so it wasn't quite as bad!! ;) hee hee
I dread going grocery shopping this time of year...especially since I do all my grocery shopping at the Super WalMart (which is conveniently open 24 hrs. a day). I am just trying to buy my food for the month and then I have to stand and wait in line for an hour because everyone goes there to buy Christmas presents. WalMart has no competition in our town, no Target or KMart, no toy stores or music stores. Well, I take that back for music...we have Best Buy. We have plenty of expensive little gift shops, clothing shops and 2 expensive dept. stores.(very small though) We don't even have a Kohl's.
As for holiday shopping, I have no worries because I don't exchange gifts with anyone which is a shame because I love shopping for gifts and then taking them home and wrapping them special. I love picking out just the perfect present for someone. Most of my friends and I have stopped exchanging gifts due to finances or we just never exchanged gifts.
My family no longer does the gift thing...they do "secret santa". However,since I am so far away I am never included which seems a bit unfair to me. When I was growing up there were maybe 15+ people to shop for, so when all the kids turned 18, they decided it was time to stop gift-giving for anyone over the age of 18, unless you wanted to buy them something. For instance, my Grandma was in her 80's so most people still got her something. My immediate family always got me presents but they are gone now. Christmas just hasn't been the same since then. I also no longer get any birthday gifts and I admit it makes me sad. Honestly, I cannot tell you the last time I unwrapped a birthday gift. And I still celebrate my birthday, cake and all.(mostly cake lol) I hope to do something special for my birthday this year. I am wanting to go to Myrtle Beach,SC for the weekend and eat at this cute restaurant that has all the waiters dressed as pirates with a real lagoon with swimming mermaids in it. It is an all you can eat buffet and the food is served in this giant pirate ship. Needless to say, it is very unusual. I am trying to post some pics of the place but for some reason, it is not working. I will have to try again.

I sometimes swear I should have been living in the 1950's because I would make an awesome 50's housewife!! Or maybe a 1960's housewife since I don't really like the whole "women don't have a life" mentality of the 1950's...women became more liberated in the 60's. However, I am by no means a feminist. I don't want equality with men...I want to be treated better!! ;) I think it was Marilyn Monroe that first said that.Seriously though, back in those days men put women up on pedestals and did chivalrous things like open car doors, or any door for that matter and carried packages.. Men treated women with respect and were romantic...things I crave in a man. I am a die-hard hopeless romantic!! Anyway, I didn't mean to go off on that side tangent, although it is very easy for me to do sometimes.
Back to Thanksgiving...I will be cooking for 2 so I am lucky. I do not envy the people that are cooking for crowds of people. I don't think I could handle it but honestly, I don't know because I never had to so who knows?? We are having turkey of course, along with my fave veggie dish, green bean casserole. I am not a cranberry lover, neither is my friend, so you won't find them on my table. I am trying a new recipe this year...a few actually....first off pumpkin orange soup. It sounded good in my Dinner Doctor cookbook. I am also going to try a sweet onion baked dip made with mayonnaise for a snack beforehand. Something I hav never really heard of before until recently.
I will be serving sweet Hawaiian rolls with honey butter, apple stuffing (another first) and either cheddar broccoli rice, mashed potatoes or some form of sweet potato pie. I haven't decided yet. I am normally not this last minute but my plans changed suddenly this year. As for dessert, I will be making my fave new recipe, RITZ mock apple pie which I love because it tastes awesome and it is so easy and like zero prep work...not one apple to peel because it is made with RITZ crackers!! You would never believe the difference, it tastes that much like the original. I will be making a new dessert which I am anxious to see how it turns out...creamy pumpkin pie but I will be adding pecans and caramel so it will really be decadent. MMMMMM!!! And on the side some Maple Nut ice cream...perfect this time of year. Plus I am a major fan of maple anything, syrup, sausage,bacon,fudge etc!!
So that is what is going on with Turkey Day. I got off-topic a bit but that's ok because it pertained to the holiday but what I really wanted to write about was what I am truly thankful for...my friends and family of course, my special gent who will be sharing the day with me and I am very glad for this. I am thankful for what I do. I feel truly blessed because I have so much fun and really love what I do. I am VERY thankful for the opportunity that I had to model and am oh so thankful that I finally have my own little corner of the internet on bbwclubs.com I am thankful for all the people that have helped me along the way to be able to make some of my dreams come true and make Chanel L'Amour a reality. I cannot leave out the people who have truly been a source of inspiration to me, my fans!! I am thankful for each and every one of you!! I love you all and would not be me without you!! XOXO
I am thanful for the internet. It gives me something to do 18 hrs. a day!! lol I am thankful for a lot of things most of us take for granted, being alive, breathing, good food,music,change of seasons etc. but I don't want to go on all night since I have my kitchen calling my name. However, there is one thing I need to mention before I go...even though every day I wake I mourn my parents and miss them more than anyone could imagine...I am VERY Thankful that they chose me to adopt and I am thankful for every second they were in my life!! Ok, now I must go because I am starting to get sentimental!! Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!! Until Next time....Blogs & Kisses, Chanel

The perfect ending to the meal was when some lady came up from behind me and told me what a cute sweater I was wearing. Now I am a big-time holiday lover (which is why you will see many holiday themed sets in my fanclub) so I am very festive and dress accordingly. I had a navy sweater on with falling autumn leaves, a scarecrow, pumpkin and a turkey knitted on it. I was proud of my sweater and love it and it made me feel nice that someone took the time out of their own life to pay someone a compliment. I always try to do that, even though people may look at me like I am weird but if I like their perfume, jewelry, hairstyle or color I will let them know. I know it makes me feel good when I get compliments from stragers so I hope my comments make their day as well.
Ok, so after breakfast, I had planned on going to visit my uncle. He is in his 70's and lives in a group home and is in poor health so I try to visit him whenever I can. My visits seem to do him some good so I am more than happy to visit him, especially since I am his only relative he has around here.
Anyway, I know when I get there, there is going to be some "odd" for a lack of a better word, people there, people who might not be in their right mind or who have the brutal honesty of a child and would blurt out things that most average people would keep to themselves. My uncles roommate is what I call a mixed breed, he is not all there but he means well and is sweet and helpful, not too mention annoying too. lol (sorry) As soon as we pull up, "Paul" comes to greet us at the car and points out the house across the street and asks us a lot of questions but he remembers me and tells me that my uncle has a cold. He then holds the door open for me like a gent. Like I said he can be very sweet and means well..he just gets in your face a bit. As we were there, I heard him sitting out on the front porch by himself singing "jingle Bells" very loudly and proudly. It was kind of cute.
"Paul" was never one of my uncle's favorite people, even though he means well. I think it has to do with the fact that my uncle is "slow" and sligtly mentally retarded, not really noticeable...he just sees shy if he doesn't know you. Anyway, when people are noticeably mentally hadicapped, like Paul, I think it annoys my uncle because he doesn't want to accept his own capabilities because he doesn't think of himself like that. When my uncle first went to this group home, he was the one that had most of his wits you might say and since he was advanced compared to the others, they tried to keep him active. (whereas most napped or watched tv all day)
So anyway, I think I am prepared to handle whatever they can throw at me.Boy, was I wrong!! While in the sitting room, where mostly everyone was, (except for xmas carolling Paul lol) some woman asked me how much I weighed. It took me by surprise!! I was in a state of shock. I knew I shouldn't let her get to me because she lived in a group home and probably didn't know any better but somehow she got to me. I didn't know what to say to her. I am not one to mouth off. I was raised to be a lady and yet I was not sure how to handle standing up for myself with an eldery woman in a group home.I mumbled out "I don't know." I knew it was none of her business but I felt that I could not tell her that no matter how much I wanted to. My face felt hot. I felt like I wanted to cry,but didn't. I was upset she ruined my "sweater compliment high". Just as I was saying good-bye to my uncle, the "how much does she weigh" lady struck again. She asked the caregiver there who I was and then asked her "How much do you think that lady weighs?" The caregiver had the perfect response, she looked at me and then at her and said ,"I don't know it is none of my business." Exactly what I wanted to say to granny all along. I know it shouldn't have bothered me and I was being silly to let it affect me at all but somehow it did. It was one of those odd little curveballs that life throws at you every once in a while. I was just unprepared. And to think I was a girl scout too!! lol
Anyway, to end the day on a postive note...there was a lady on the sofa next to "how much does she weigh" woman, a woman who I have seen talk to herself on occasion. As I was getting ready to walk out the door, that lady said she really liked the home movie dvd that I brought for my uncle to watch and she remarked how pretty I was. I smiled and remembered how last time I was here, I kept hearing her say I was pretty to the caregiver and how I had a very nice smile. Ok, I know she probably isn't all there either, but I am going to for my own sake imagine she is like Paul and means well!!! lol Or maybe her blurts are nice and not mean....maybe her brutal honesty is she really thinks I am attractive. I will settle for that. Sorry for rambling but I felt like venting. Better blog next time, I promise. Blogs and Kisses, Chanel

I really enjoyed being heard and being cheered on by others who understood the plight we face as "fat" people.I also praised the full-figured woman and would practically shout how sexy bbw's are.So hopefully, writing this blog will help me feel like I am once again helping women discover they can be sexy at any size or age.I truly believe this. If I didn't I would never do what I do for a living. I am a cheerleader for bbw's!!
I also would like to use this blog as a way for my fans to get to know me better. Feel free to ask me anything...you may not always get an answer but it doesn't hurt to ask. lol I will let you know about upcoming photo sets, past photo sets and ideas I have for future ones. I welcome any ideas or suggestions that you may have.
Well,I guess that is all for now. It is 2:34 am and I am getting sleepy so good night for now. Until next time....blogs & kisses,Chanel
