BREAKING!! View later this evening on IGTV on @curvemonstersglam and @curvemonsters tomorrow. Song: “Get My Back (CurveMonsters Remix)” by BruvaJC (Tiktok: bruvajc) https://50plano.com/artists/ http://www.50Plano.Store Hey babies! It’s March 2020, which, according to meteorologists, is technically Spring by their reckoning. Officially for the rest of us, Spring begins March 20, 2020—so many 20s in there so your vision gotta stay focused. Speaking of focused, hopefully you’ve been staying focused on your fitness along with us since Jan 1, 2020!

The CurveMonsters Spring Break season begins the second week of March, which means March 8th baybay! Yay! We realize that some schools are already in Spring Break season, while most usually start around the 2nd and 3rd weeks of March. Spring Break is like the preseason of our annual CurveMonsters Swimwear Season, which starts May 1, 2020 😊 So if you’ve been slacking in your fitness and weight loss goals, Spring Break is your early warning sign that it’s time to get it in gear now! [Continue after photos…]

And don’t worry. Yeah our popular videos show the most beautiful curve queen and fit babes on the planet. But that should not deter you from doing what’s best for your body and lifestyle. If you only lose one pound during our fitness season, that’s cause for celebrating! We love each and every one of you and only want you to be happy in the skin you’re in. This is why we stressed in our fitness articles that your first step towards a more fit and active lifestyle is to first focus on your mental preparedness.

Don’t worry about changing your diet or starting a workout routine just yet. In your first week, just focus on not gaining any more weight. You’d be surprised: if you don’t regularly weigh yourself, you will gain unexpected weight and won’t even notice until you go to try your clothes on and blame your “dryer” for shrinking your clothes (the CEO of our sponsor went through this painful reality himself, so we know how it is).

If you can go a day or two without gaining weight, you are already successful on your path to fitness. Now just build on that by gently cutting back the amount of food you eat each day. Don’t change anything else yet! You have to nurse your mind gently and gradually, not drastically. So, as we wrote before, if you eat 2 candy bars a day, try to do only one (or maybe one and a half). If you eat a pound of food for dinner, try ¾ of a pound instead. Keep doing this for a few weeks while weighing yourself at least twice a day and you will see results soon (don’t force it yet, just make sure not to gain new weight each day).

Down the road, your milestone goal should be to cut each meal in half, and then cut out one meal by eating breakfast after 1030am and dinner between 3 and 4pm, only eating very healthy snacks (not a lot though) for later in the evening if you can’t handle the hunger pains at first. Don’t let hunger pains control your mind! Let your mind control them. They will eventually decrease in intensity if you distract yourself from thinking about them. Also, you don’t need to eat three meals a day. On your journey, you will find that sometimes, you only need one meal. But you have to be active and distract yourself from the thought of eating. Finding engaging hobbies or entertaining activities really help with this.

And finally…Guys, this fitness stuff goes for you too! We read all your DMs, emails, texts (why do y’all text people you never even seen lol) and see your international calls (we don’t pick up for strangers, silly, lol). For all you men who desire to date the most beautiful, curvy women on the planet, you can’t just be a spectator to our videos. You need to be fit, too! Your money can only go so far with women. They want someone handsome and in good shape, too, so get up off that couch and executive office chair and get active with us this season! In a nutshell, this is the CurveMonsters Fitness Challenge and we offer it to you freely because we want you happy and ready for fun this Spring and Summer! If you’re not happy, you won’t want to come check out our endless stream of fun and curvy videos this upcoming bikini and swimwear season, right?! Lol let’s make this season even more fun than the record breaking 2019 season!

Tech Talk: The Very Basics to Build a Fashion Website

mix race saleswomen holding dresses fashion boutique big shop female clothes shopping mall interior cartoon characters full length flat horizontal vector illustration

With many of our social media followers being entrepreneurs with side hustles, especially in the fashion and beauty industries, we decided to launch a Tech Talk series with John Conley, owner and Chief Social Media Servant at Samsona Software. He’s the author of the soon to be published eBook, “The 2020 Business Guide to Digital Transformation Governance: How to Technologically Transform Your Organization for the Cloud.”

No, we’re not going to get geeky or nerdy, but wanted to help clear up the very basics behind creating modern, responsive, and visually appealing websites with social media integration and optimization. For the sake of disclosure, Samsona Software is part of Samsona Corporation, the parent company of our main sponsor, 50Plano.com.

Let’s dive right in…

CM: Thanks for helping us launch our Tech Talk series, Mr. Conley. With the fashion industry making a big, fabulous splash on the internet and social media in particular, where can up and coming fashion and beauty entrepreneurs learn to get online with their ideas?

Conley: You’re welcome. There are plenty of websites and videos, with a few geared towards the fashion and beauty space. The well-respected McKinsey Report just published a white paper on fashion industry trends, with an emphasis on internet technology. I think that shows just how far the fashion industry has come. That article is a good place to start for fashion entrepreneurs so that they at least come up with a good business plan based on the feedback in it. I also recommend checking out an article posted earlier this year describing in simple terms how to start an online clothing store. Finally, I’d recommend visiting the Fashion or Beauty sections of Wix.com to get ideas of the visual appeal of modern fashion and beauty sites.

CM: Those are great ideas. Thanks. Help our audience understand what makes fashion and beauty websites look so sexy and stunning, and how they can at least understand how to customize the look and feel of their sites to get an advantage over the competition. [Continue after image]

Conley: Today, entrepreneurs have a choice between their own websites versus only relying on a standard social media shopping feature as offered by Instagram, Facebook, Amazon, Pinterest and others. Most of the public is conditioned to doing the bulk of their online experience through the major social media platforms. So any entrepreneur launching their own website is competing with that. But with the right social media integration strategy, independent websites can maintain a visually appealing and customer-oriented experience from the social media platforms to the website, and back again. In other words, when your customer clicks on a link to your independent website from your social media pages, they won’t notice the difference, which is your goal.

CM: Glad you brought up social media integration. What things are needed to make those independent websites a seamless user experience for potential customers?

Conley: Without getting too technical, there are certain web page elements entrepreneurs should be familiar with before creating their websites. Every web page has two major elements: cascading style sheets (CSS) and web page markup language known as HTML.

CM: Those sound kinda geeky. Can you explain both in plain English?

Conley: Sure. Let me use a house to explain. Every house has a foundation and structure, walls, windows, etc. When first built, the house is there, but is very plain. There’s no paint, no carpeting, to pictures hanging on walls, no plants, nothing. This is what HTML is to every web page. It provides the foundation and structure of every page, but is plain like an old 1990s website. Going back to the house metaphor, that’s when you need an interior designer-decorator to come in and make it beautiful and pleasant to the senses. CSS is the interior designer of the HTML web page “house.” HTML5, the latest version of HTML, offers even more sexy features for the fashion industry than its predecessors.

Fashion quote, Letters and face of beautiful girls.

But the metaphor does not end there. Once you have a house with interior design, you still need certain features like plumbing and electricity to bring water and electricity into the house, and to remove water from the house when used. Utility companies provide these services. Likewise, a web page needs “services” to bring customer and product data into the web page, and then to move data from the web page to a database or specialized services behind the scenes. One of the most popular web page languages for this is JavaScript. For mobile devices, a very popular version of JavaScript is jQuery. I also recommend Adobe PhoneApp for creating mobile apps, which are similar to web pages.

CM: Wow, lots of helpful info. I never thought of web pages that way, the whole house and interior design metaphor. Mind blowing. You mentioned JavaScript and the idea of services behind the scenes. Is some of that related to what we keep hearing about cloud computing?

Conley: Yes indeed. So sticking with the utility company metaphor, cloud computing is similar to utilities. They provide a set of core services that small and large businesses need to conduct business without a cost to bust their budgets. Amazon (AWS) and Microsoft (Azure) are two of the biggest cloud technology “utility” companies around. The utility services that businesses need are database services, security services, networking services (such as when you have business operations in Dallas and Atlanta and need both cities talking to each other over the internet), and so on. Some companies also offer specialized utility services for accounting, human resources, and marketing, among others. When JavaScript, jQuery or other web page language needs to connect with these utility services on behalf of your web page, they talk to utility services in the cloud that are called “Software as a Service” (SaaS) services. To help understand this, think of how Texas broke up the electric utility industry years ago. There is a Electric Retailer and an Electric Wholesaler (those are not the exact terms, but stick with me). Oncor is the wholesaler, but my retailer is Reliant. Similarly, SaaS services are the “retailer” for cloud hosted “wholesalers.” Entrepreneurs don’t need to worry about the wholesalers in this article, but the SaaS retailer is good to get familiar with as that’s the group they will choose. Microsoft Office 365 is an example of a SaaS retailer that the average person is very familiar with.

CM: Very helpful into. I think the readers can digest all of that. Any final thoughts for this inaugural tech talk series?

Conley: I’d like the reader to take away from this interview that the glue between your pretty fashion and beauty web pages, and real business data behind the scenes, is what your small company needs to stay ahead of the competition and deliver excellent customer service. Understanding these basics should help you find the right web developer for your independent website. If you have friends who are good with social media stuff, hire them to wire up your website to your various social media pages as web developers can sometimes charge a lot for these services. Of course, if you need further help getting things started for your website, you can always reach out to me on this site, or SamsonaSoftware.com.CM: Ok thanks a bunch, Mr. Conley!

Taming Your Curvy Weight for the Holidays

As some of our readers and Instagram followers know by now, each year, we kick of the new year with our fitness oriented series of content. In about six weeks, we’ll be starting up our fifth annual Curvy Fitness Challenge party online. But before we get there, there are some common sense things curvy fashionistas can be doing to keep their curve weight under control during the feasts of the Thanksgiving and Christmas time of year. And in actuality, these tips can be done year round before swimwear season comes around again (boy, time flies). [Continue reading after the gallery]

If you are already dieting and working out, then great. If not, now is the time to take a deeper dive into what kinds of foods you are eating before Thanksgiving rolls around. We’re not advocating any particular diet as you are grown and sexy. We are suggesting you start now to cut back on the portions you eat so that you have room for all that turkey and pie (and alcohol). Sugar and salt tend to go hand in hand with the holiday feasts. Unfortunately, both of these are the biggest enemies of weight control. Salt helps hold water in while sugar becomes a transformer and converts into fat. Alcohol eventually transforms into fat as well. Add on top of that all the cooking oil, butter, and other fat sources and you’ve got a recipe for a fat disaster…sigh!

Yeah! So that’s why we suggest planning in advance so that you can mitigate the weight gain that the holidays bring.

Now that’s the food and liquor side of the equation. Two other aspects to keep in mind is the scale, and working out.

The Dreaded Scale

Most of us hate to get on the scale because we can’t lose weight fast enough. But that’s the wrong approach. Weighing yourself regularly is not only about weight loss, but also making sure you don’t gain any more weight! You’d be surprised how your weight fluctuates during the day. Let’s say you weight 180 pounds before breakfast. Depending on the sheer weight of the food you’re going to eat, you will gain weight in accordance with the weight of your food. And if it contains salt and or sugar, either ingredient will contribute to weight gain. If you have a bile movement, that will subtract from the weight gain. If you don’t have a BM, then that’s more weight that stays, which is why it’s important to eat foods that contribute to a healthy metabolism.

Throughout the day, you will add and subtract from your weight depending on what you eat and drink. Thus it becomes important to weigh yourself multiple times a day. Again, you’re not weighing yourself for dramatic weight loss. You simply want to at least break even at the end of the day. At 180 pounds in the morning, if you end up weighing 180 pounds at the end of the day, count yourself blessed! You didn’t gain any new weight. If you can weigh yourself before and after each meal, make a note of the variations in weight. You will find out quickly if you ate too much, or did not have an adequate bile movement.

Once you get used to not gaining weight, start finding ways to cut back on what you eat and drink in order to shave off some weight. Losing 0.2 pounds in a day is great. At least you didn’t gain weight, right? If you’re used to eating a half pound cheeseburger a day, with an extra large soda and large fries, cutting back to half of each will result in that much less food weight sitting in your body. Cutting a half pound burger in half means you only add 0.25 pounds in your body for that meal setting. Of course, the lower amounts of salt and sugar means your body has that much more room to fight weight gain. Adding too much salt and sugar to your body is like handing marijuana to soldiers before they go into battle. The weed will slow them down, and they won’t be able to fight, lol. Likewise, the salt holds water in, and the sugar adds fat on top of the grease and cheese in your burger. Why render your body’s “fat soldiers” ineffective in fighting fat?

The Dreaded Workout

Along with the frequent weighing, it’ll be good to introduce some easy workout routines before Thanksgiving. It can be as simple as a 20-30 minute power walk before you go to work, during your lunch hour, or after work. If you walk, be sure to move your arms vigorously to get that upper body workout. Eventually, introduce some cardio exercises in your mix. Working out also keeps your anti-fat soldiers in battle ready shape, keeping your body from gaining new weight.

Getting in this habit of frequently “micro-weighing” yourself now will keep you guarded in the amount of food you eat during the holidays. There you go, babes! Go forth and micro-weigh yourselves several times a day. Try not to gain any new weight, and eventually focus on micro-losing weight each day between now and New Year’s Day. Happy curves!

How NOT to Get Ripped Off When Building Your Website

Editor’s Note: This article was originally written by our sponsor, John the CEO of Samsona Software/50 Plano. We know that many of the major Instagram influencers on our popular CurveMonsters IG pages, as well as many businessmen who are followers, use web developers for their websites large and small, so this article is for you!

Every so often, I’ll come across someone who had bright eyed dreams about launching a website as part of their business plan, only to have those dreams go down in flames because someone they trusted with their hard earned money failed to deliver the desired website on time, if at all. The average losses they suffered in terms of websites that were half done or poorly done has been about $400-900. How could this happen?

The problem comes into play due in part to greed on behalf of the website developer, and lack of knowledge on the part of the customer. Usually, the potential customer asks friends for referrals to web developers or they post on the various social media sites looking for someone. Without doing much research, they pick a developer who sounds convincing and seems “technical.” The developer charges anywhere from $250 to over $1,000+ to do the whole website without providing a lot of details about what’s all involved. They usually pressure customers to pay the entire amount up front. A few customers try to negotiate a lower fee or pay half as a deposit, promising to pay the other half when the site is complete.

Regardless of what price is negotiated, the outcome is often the same: The developer starts on the site, putting up a web page or two, adding some photos and text, and few social media links here and there, and then poof! They vanish. The customer tries calling, but no answer or the number is disconnected. Hundreds of their hard earned dollars gone and they’re ready to sue.

But wait. Is there anything you could have done differently to avoid losing so much money?

How To Get in Our Next Smokin Hot Curvy Video

First of all, judging by the overwhelming response, we can safely assume you guys like the updated, stylish format of our 4th Annual CurveMonsters Fitness Season video series. A big thanks to all of the tens of thousands of you Instagrammers who have been our loyal followers! We couldn’t have done it without you.

Of course, with the growing success of our video series comes many, many requests to be included in our next video. One of these days, we’ll do a behind the scenes (BTS) video about how we select videos and pics, and how we categorize them in source folders, then select the best of those based on the theme of the video series and the vision/video treatment for that individual video. Once we get down to a few dozen videos, we look for the best snipper within each clip. Then we line them up in the video editing timeline and produce it from there.

The actual process is quite detailed and can take hours. We’ll focus on the pre-production selection process for now. If you’ve followed us for some time, you know that we published a guideline on what to do to maximize your chances of being selected for posting your pics and videos. We strongly suggest you read those guidelines first! To keep this article short, we won’t re-publish those guidelines here so be sure to check them out.

Once you have figured out the fundamentals of our publishing guidelines, the next thing to consider is what are doing in the video, what do you look like, and your style. As with any entertainment media, the more engaging and unique your video content, the better. And of course, you have to showcase your curvy figure in a tasteful way 🙂 Some videos we look at are just simple poses or go too far in terms of expressions of sexuality, so we tend to not use those. Also, because of the increased scrutiny of digital rights enforcement on YouTube, Facebook and now Instagram, we have to mute videos unless you are the artist performing the song and expressly give us permission to use it. We would use this written permission on appeal if needed.

Finally, buy one of the apparel items we have on sale at 50PlanoShops.com. Buy and post. Tag us, and we’ll repost you! It’s that simple. That is also a pathway to becoming a CurveMonsters insider. We give preference to insiders on many projects.

That’s it for now. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask. Also, it’s good to study our current videos, paying close attention to each clip to see if your videos follow suit. And once again, read our pic and video guidelines at the links provided. Be creative and curvy! Have fun.
