Eye-Catcher

If you’re a Lane Bryant fan, you may have heard of their recent collaboration with the students of Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. They worked with a group of 12 students to put together a versatile sportswear collection. The second this limited edition collection dropped, I knew there were some pieces I had to get my hands on—like the Asymmetrical Drape-Back Jacket. It was the first piece to catch my eye.…

Giveaway Osmosis Skincare Hydralift Firming Gel Mask (Closed)

As I sat down to write this post, I started thinking about skin types and how each of us is so different from the next. You might have oily skin and the person sitting next to you might have dry skin. I’m the one with combination skin. Then I started thinking about skin care routines and how that varies too. Even though we might differ in these areas, I’m pretty sure we all have the…

Feeling Natori-ously Sexy

Sponsored by Natori. Feeling sexy is truly a state of mind. No matter what I’m wearing, who I’m with, or where I’m going—it all starts inside. It’s not only about being confident, it’s about being able to love myself for all that I am. For me, this is the core of where it all begins. I do know that each one of us is different and my idea of sexy, might not be yours. I…

Lane Bryant Collab with Otis College of Art and Design

We are all fans of collaborations aren’t we? And Lane Bryant seems to be on top of their game when it comes to teaming up with talent. Today, they announced their collaboration with the students of Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. They sent me a few images from the collection which is expected to launch February 2nd, exclusively on Lane Bryant’s website, and in both the brand’s flagship location on 34th…

When Life Decides to Shift

I’m having a major self-realization moment right now. It’s like I can feel my life shifting around, if that makes sense. Yes, it’s because I’m getting older and hopefully wiser. All I want, more than anything, is to live a kinder, balanced, and happier life. It sounds a lot easier than it has been. For the past few months I have been struggling with my inner self. It has nothing to do with welcoming in…

5 Ways to Bring Your Wardrobe Back to Life

For those of us who love fashion and the art of getting dressed every day, there’s nothing worse than a fashion slump. That moment when you hate everything in your closet and claim to have nothing to wear. Never mind the fact that you have way too many clothes. I’ve been there and I know about half of us are there right now. So, what can we do without spending money? I put together five…

Fancy in Formalwear with K Couture

Sponsored by K Couture. Formalwear is one of those things that no one really thinks about until they need it. Like maybe for a wedding or a special occasion. I know I don’t have a formal gown sitting in my closet waiting to be worn. And if I did, it probably wouldn’t be exactly what I wanted or it would fit funny. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could just jump online and design your…

5 Beauty Products I’m Loving

I consider myself a pretty loyal girl. If I like you and you don’t do me wrong—I’ll keep you around for the long haul. That’s pretty much how it is with the beauty products in my life. Being in my line of work, I get my share of goodies. Some I adore…others…not so much. The bonus is when I love them because I feel like it’s some kind of amazing discovery. Then there are other…

It was sent over to me yesterday and I am loving a lot of these pieces. What else is new? I’m here for all of the flowy and boho-inspired styles. Again..what else is new? As you’ll see below they really jumped…

Hola…It’s Me…

Sorry, the title of this post is a bad play on Adele’s hit song. I couldn’t help it. “Hola!” is written across my chest and I do kind of love her. I’m waiting for her to be my best friend by the way. Just putting it out there. Anyways…I’m so easily distracted. Saying hello is one of the easiest ways to start communicating with others. No matter how much technology and social media changes, there’s always time…

MDMflow Lip Crush

Pucker up and get ready for your new lip crush—MDMflow. Inspired by 90’s Hip Hop culture, this London-based premium beauty brand is the creation of Florence Adepoju. The cruelty-free and handmade lipsticks come in some seriously bold and fun shades, including Vamp (which I need in my life ASAP). I can’t get enough of the gold tubes it comes in. And I love how each of these hot shades has a little story of how it was inspired. I…

Breaking Rules with Leota

We all know that fashion rules no longer apply. If you’re living by them, feel free to release yourself from these unrealistic standards. As plus size women, we have been told more than once that we shouldn’t wear stripes. Blah…blah…blah…seriously? All I have to say is, give me all of the stripes please. Leota, a premium fashion brand focused on designing “Feminine, Sophisticated, and Effortless” pieces reached out and offered to send me one of…

Curvy Girl Travels Desert Adventure

If there’s one thing I love more than writing, it’s the freedom of being able to travel. Ask my dad and he’ll tell you the story about this little 2-year-old, yelling “let’s dooooh” whenever someone grabbed their keys. He said I was always trying to leave. Which I did a couple of times…but that’s a whole different story. Well, I can say that things haven’t changed much. Whenever I have an opportunity to travel I…
