A few weeks ago, I posted “Let the Journey Begin to a Healthier Me,” detailing the beginning of my fitness journey. Then on Facebook, I asked if you guys were interested in me recapping what I’m up to. And some of you said yes, so here we go! Now, I’m in no way, shape, or form a medical professional. I’m only sharing what is working for me and my body. Just thought I’d throw that out there. And before we go any further, my goal, since day one is to live a healthy and strong life. It’s not and never has been about a number on the scale. Read more

Where are my JLO fans? I know you can’t see me, but I’m raising my hand like crazy right now. If you’re a true fan, then you know she’s not only a multi-talented performer, but she’s also in the fashion game with her own collection available at Kohl’s. I had a chance to try out a few Jennifer Lopez plus size pieces and I only love her more now (if that’s even possible). Read more
You may have noticed that I have a thing for accessories. This is especially true when it comes to necklaces. They can make or break an entire outfit for me. When I accessorize, I tend to choose a piece that will standout—since my outfits aren’t very complicated. This spring and summer (AKA festival season), one of my favorites are on trend—silver statement necklaces. And I found 15 of them to share with you! Read more
In case you’ve been out of the loop, L.A. has been in a little bit of a heat wave. And when that happens, I tend to wear the comfiest thing I can find. Yes, this includes the right pair of denim. I have to stay cool the best way I know how people! Ideel (formelry Ideeli) sent me a few pieces from their new (and improved) plus collection on their web site. And it made the perfect casual look on a blazing Saturday afternoon. Read more

I’ll admit that swimsuit shopping isn’t normally one of my favorite things to do. I know I’m not alone either. But, don’t worry my loves it’s not as bad as we once thought it was. I’m super determined to conquer it! I headed over to Target to check out the new AVA & VIV swimwear collection and to find a few spring break worthy pieces. Read more
How many of you are tired of people assuming that just because we wear plus sizes, that we aren’t active? I’m sick of it. You and I both know that’s a myth that needs to be squashed right now. Not only do we workout, but we also do yoga, lift weights, go hiking, swim, do pilates, attend dance classes and more. We not only want a healthy body, but we also want stylish and funtioning plus size activewear. Read more

I love this photo that my friend Reah took of me on a rooftop in New York City. It definitely wasn’t a planned pose. I just remember thinking how cold it was, but also how happy I was to be in one of my favorite cities. I’ve realized I made that happen. I’m responsible for that moment. And ever since learning of this year’s theme of International Women’s Day, #MakeItHappen, I couldn’t help but reflect on this photo and the consequences that lead me here. Read more
