How many times have you explored the city that you live in? You know, went somewhere new and just had fun or relaxed without the pressures of checking your inbox for a few hours. Very rarely do we take the time to enjoy moments of pleasure in our own city. I’ve been living in New York for almost four years and there are still so many things I haven’t done. So when Catherine’s decided to surprise four bloggers with a NYC staycation I gladly excepted.
Staycations are actually quite simple to plan and can save you lots of money on expensive plane tickets and car rentals. But what you don’t want to do is stay in your hotel room the whole weekend. So here’s a few ideas for you to help you plan your next staycation in New York. View Full Post
I’m never surprised at the trolls. They are everywhere. There is a segment of our society that has a hard time embracing the idea that curvy girls have a right to wear what they want to wear. Hell! Everyone has the right to wear what they want. Society wants to tell us to cover up and hide our bodies. I ain’t here for it. So I am encouraging you to look and feel great at any size.

YAS BIH! I’m sorry for language but this new collection from Courtney Noelle has given me enough life of dopeness to be completely content until…her next collection drops. Noelle’s “More than Pretty” campaign is “a call to women to show how dope we are beyond how nice we can dress and beat our faces”. Well, you right! View Full Post

My new goal for the summer (and in life in general) is to be comfortable. My second goal (and it’s a close second) is to be CUTE! So I’m always on the hunt for pieces that I can (1) wear with sneakers cause I am over heels and (2) slip on and off without fuss. Insert this T Shirt Maxi Dress from ASOS. View Full Post
Typically I don’t repeat looks but my closet isn’t really set up like that so it happens…often. Besides that, when I love a look and I feel like it allows me to “slay the day”, I wanna wear it over and over again. And if it’s comfortable, please believe that it’s being worn a number of times. The same applies for this look. View Full Post
I had the opportunity to attend the most amazing show yesterday!
Christian Siriano debuted his Spring Capsule Collection with Lane Bryant at the United Nations followed by the Empowering Women Summit. Actress, Danielle Brooks, Models Ashely Graham, Candice Huffine, and Precious Lee were among the models who graced the runway. Not to mention some of your (and mine) favorite bloggers also ripped the runway! (Go Nicolette, Gabi and Beck!)
This 27-piece collection is dripped in unicorn greatness. Every. Single. Piece. I’m not sure how I am going to be able to justify purchasing an entire collection to my boyfriend but I am going to try. From the fit, to the bold colors, Christian got this right for us plus size girls! View Full Post
