I was just recently introduced to PantyDrop (find them online at www.pantydrop.me/) and I have to say...I'm not only impressed, but feel like this is a huge step in the right direction of adulthood for me. For the longest, I've had a drawer for my "cute panties" and then, a drawer where the panties that probably should have been thrown out, but I keep them around for incidentals are kept. I won't believe you if you say I'm the only one. I mean, I'm not always the best at doin
I’m a believer that you will ALWAYS look the best in whatever you are comfortable in. I’m a huge fan of athleisure wear and being comfortable. I know, shocking since I model right? But seriously, if I can get away with playing up a casual outfit- you can bet that’s what I’ll be in. So naturally, I was automatically drawn to this casual grey jumpsuit- because I knew for a fact it would be comfortable to wear. I wore it to brunch, so not a lot of extra was required...so combat
At 26, I can finally say that I’m enjoying becoming uncomfortable. For some reason, I’ve almost always stood out wherever I go. Not usually for my stature, but for how I carry myself. People normally notice how happy I am, and how easily I pass on a smile. I love people and I love life and I try to show that. A few years ago, when I worked in law firms, I tried my hardest to blend in because standing out resulted in me being picked on and singled out. I hated it. I wanted not

I think pant suits and red may become a staple in my wardrobe. I felt so powerful and yet so sexy all at the same time. I paired this wide leg suit with some black ankle booties and of course my fanny pack. I also wore my favorite torrid bra with the cage straps that peak out just a little bit to edge things up. I felt like a whole mood on Christmas Day. Grateful. Thankful.🎄

Life is always full of pain, everywhere that you look you can see it. So I became a person passionate about seeing love, life and happiness. In everything possible. For me, this year was full of A LOT of pain. The pain of a tumultuous end to grad school, the pain of me gaining weight due to the stress and having to refocus on loving myself. I put forth a lot of passion into keeping my mind strong. But I would be foolish to not talk about the amount of pleasure I experienced.
If you know me at all, you know I love to be active and this includes while I’m traveling!
During my first trip to Ghana in March, I had a lot of fun hiking at Kakin Park and doing the Canopy Walk.
During this visit, I got a chance to go to the Legon Botanical Gardens and do their Canopy Walk which featured a beautiful island filled with white seagulls.
Before completing the canopy walk, it began to literally pour down raining. Typically, I would’ve been pissed...but it was
Sand between my toes, laughing until my sides heart and sweet memories that can turn my worse frowns into beautiful smiles.
These are some of life’s little blessings.
There are some days where Life’s Little Blessings are so abundant my heart is warm and fuzzy and I want to prolong the time as long as possible.
I had a lot of these days while in Ghana during my second visit. I was having so much fun and just soaking up all of the beauty, all around me and also within my hear
So incredibly sad this romper didn’t make it in time for my trip to Ghana...But, you can never let a good outfit go to waste, right?
So I paired it with some tights, some gray booties, my cute newly thrifted Prada bag and my old trusty leather jacket.
What do you think?
Me when he say: Yuh pretty pon di gram an Yuh pretty inna real life...You a walking trophy 🏆

Growing up as a plussize tomboy, I don’t think anyone expected me to step into my feminine power the way that I did. And to be honest, sometimes even I’m shocked.
Buuut, even into my adulthood, I was way too shy to wear lingerie for anyone other than myself.
But lemme tell you, deciding to package your body in some beautiful lace, or any type of hot lingerie can add some intensity and passion in the bedroom and secretly be very empowering for you as a woman. Wearing lingeri
As a tomboy, I never fancied dresses and skirts much. And as I got older, I also got bigger and noticed whenever I did decide to wear a dress or a skirt, my thighs would chafe and cause me a lot of discomfort. Needless to say, I pretty much crossed dresses and skirts off my list for every day wear and just saved them for special occasions or photo shoots. Not too long ago, I was introduced to a company called Bandeletes. They are a company that has created pretty lace bands t

Summer time is my FAVORITE time of the year. One, because I'm a summer baby (VIRGO's stand up- August 24th in the house), and secondly and most importantly because the weather is amazing! The problem with the weather being amazing, and traveling....is how hard it is to stay on track with eating healthy and exercising. I know I'm not the only one who struggles during the summer time with this, or am I...??? Nah, I know I'm not the only one. Traveling and summer activities mak
It's hard to believe that summer is officially here. Then again, the amount of sweat I've been producing daily lets me know that it is very much here, and it is very hot.

SHEIN offers cute, chic styles that are PERFECT for summer! This adorable set kept me lookin' cute, and feelin' cool through my festivities over the weekend whic

I was super excited to receive the opportunity to attend the Blogger Breakfast with Lane Bryant and Cacique this morning! I also was really nervous about how I was going to manage to look cute and still stay cool on this hot and humid summer New York City today. It was so amazing seeing so many beautiful familiar faces, and talking about topics within the plussize industry that are REALLY important and valuable to us as a community. I wore my favorite necklace I bought while
My visit to New Orleans to accept an award for Body Positive Model of the year did not go as planned, but I still felt like a major boss in these gold buttoned high waisted red pants!
