You know the definition of the perfect beach body? In the words of body acceptance activist and author Lesley Kinzel, "A 'beach body' is whatever body you take to the beach." And we're proving it by showcasing 13 gorgeous plus size models -- such as Ashley Graham, Natalie Drue and Robyn Lawley -- who demonstrate that curves are seriously sexy at any size.

Yeah, we've all been there: It's bright and early at 7:41 a.m., you've hit snooze twice and now you have to get out of bed to even have a chance of making it to your 9 a.m. meeting. Yikes. While you can rock an high pony and put on a tunic with leggings in a flash, finding something that's easy to eat and also healthy is a taller order. An especially concerning fact when you consider that your breakfast choices can make or break your entire day. This pivotal meal that your mom always warned you to never, ever skip is what revs up or slows down your metabolism for the other 23.5 hours of the day.

Anyone who has tasked themselves with organizing knows that you don't get from "determined" to "satisfied with life-changing results" without a lot of inner turmoil. Especially if you follow Marie Kondo's tips from her bestselling novel, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up." Thanks to a job that requires me to test out new beauty products (I know, it's rough), my product closet -- er, bathroom -- is bordering on a level that could get me on "Hoarders." So, I decided to put Kondo's tactics to the test. As she says in the book, "When you put your house in order, you put your affairs and your past in order, too." Such is the magic of tidying up.
