SO! So let me catch you up on life (mine to be exact).

After 3 years of receiving an overwhelming number of emails from women who had also lost their mothers to cancer I decided to write a book about my experience with grief. Mainly because I was exhausting my sanity trying to answer all the questions I was getting. I figured if I wrote a memoir laced with tips that maybe, just maybe, I’d be more ready when I was approached about the subject.

I’ve wanted to be author since…forever. I can remember having book readings with my Barbie’s on our living room floor. And for the longest time, writing this book was just something I had told my good girlfriends I was “GOING TO DO”. You know, I’m going to travel more, I’m going to lose these 40 pounds magically…the usual “yea ok, sure” thoughts of our lives. God had a bigger plan for me and at the end of 2015 a publishing company reached out to me. Because God knew I was not going to get this done any other way.

What you don’t know is that… View Full Post

I’m currently on a “financial diet” because I sorta kinda went overboard a few months back. I kept loading up my online carts (plural because I keep my carts filled up while I wait for the sales) with trendy goodies and when I went to check out, sheesh! My wallet might have silently screamed. A few of the items I caught on sale but most were what I consider to be must-haves…like this Boohoo Plus Embroidered Hem Mesh Maxi Dress! View Full Post

OLGA FLIRTY BRA: LACE UNLINED FULL-FIGURE BRA | Shop it here!

My mother would always tell me that I was a firecracker of a child. I was the kid always daring others to do crazy things in our neighborhood and I’d willingly accept even crazier challenges from my peers. I’ve allowed that firecracker mentality to kinda spill over into womanhood. But it’s all a mask for me.

When I was asked to participate in Olga Intimates #FearlesslyFlirty movement I thought about all the women of different sizes that exude confidence, flaunt their curves and adopt a flirty attitude.

Do I consider myself one of them? Meh…on most days, maybe! View Full Post

Today, just five years after the launch of Snapchat we get reintroduced to the popular app that was once only known for dick pics and private pre-teen conversations. Except this intro came via Instagram. Let me tell you, Instagram kinda bodies Snapchat. And I spent most of my day reading and watching ridiculously funny stories about Instagram’s new update, affectionately titled Instagram Stories: which is merely an imitation of Snapchat.

In case you missed it this morning and have yet to receive the update and explore, here’s a peak at all the digital fuss: View Full Post
