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?

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!

Perfect for my graduation celebration and a night out in DC! I got so many compliments from strangers wearing this outfit

I’ve never been to a ball before, so I was super excited to see that NYU was having a Military Ball- which meant I could invite my dad and mom 🎉 I was super excited for a few reasons: 1. To see them, duh! 2. To celebrate my dad’s military service 3. To dress up with my family and show school pride 4. To receive my military chords for graduation After we secured our tickets, reality set in... I hardly have anything in my closet that I still wear...most less a dress or a gown
Thick thighs save lives, that’s the saying right?
But how come it’s SOooo hard to find shoes that fit my thick calves and especially thighs? I know I can’t be the only one! Even after losing 75 lbs, my thighs are still thick and I love them 😍 But I hate the difficulty I have shopping for sexy shoes, especially when it comes to boots!
I’m happy to say that I finally found a pair of boots that fit PERFECTLY over all of these lucious thighs, and y’all...I actually have room to
I have two sides. 1. Extra Glam Rae 2. Raggedy Ann but comfortable Rae With Raggedy Ann but comfortable Rae, I’ve been mistaken as homeless before. I have a few go-to, clearly worn in sweatpants, sweat shirts, ex’s basketball shorts and less than crisp t-shirts that I wear when I know I’m going to just be sitting in the house, have had a long day, am just getting back from a shoot or really have no choice but to put on clothes even when I don’t want to. I’m not proud to admit
I can’t tell you how often people try to explain the difference between what’s appropriate to put on social media versus what is not. Or what’s appropriate for a woman to wear versus what is not. I remember when I first became interested in lingerie- as if it were taboo for a larger sized woman to want flattering and pretty undergarments; I immediately received comments like :
“Are you really going to wear that?”
“People are going to think you’re begging for attention”
If you’re anything like me, you struggle with Fall layers. Especially in the beginning of fall. I’m either sweating my life away, or freezing from being a terrible judge of how the weather is going to behave! Usually I revert to sweat pants and hoodies (which is still a yes in my book), but this season I’ve decided to be more fashionable in my fall clothing choices. Below see a basic black long sleeve uniqlo top and the curve hugging Skinnies by @RwnbyRawan (which have easi
