GIRL! Lawrd Jesus be one of those fences that hold you close to someone else who goes to church more often than you!

This happened.

I am very proud because this was on my bucket list. Actually, I wanted to full on jump out of a plane. Like a plane in the sky close to Heaven where my mother resides. In theory, it sounded like an awesome freaking idea. Until I did the faux diving, aka indoor skydiving. Those real skydiving dreams are long gone. I’m good! View Full Post

Ahh, vacations! We love them, but we hate to think too much about it. The more we think of the logistics, the less we have fun. I recently traveled to the Caribbean with Princess Cruises and OMG, it took forever to get ready. Then when I returned I was going through serious withdrawals so my bag stay packed until the next month. (Don’t you dare judge me!)

So because I love you, here are 10 lazy but effective travel tips you need to be aware of before your next trip.

Gorgeous In Grey in St Croix

After spending five days in St. Croix, I realized the air down there is just different. St. Croix is a part of the America Caribbean and is actually the biggest of the three main islands that make up the United States Virgin Islands (USVI). It’s also probably the most underrated island in the Caribbean. The cruise industry has made St. John and St. Thomas the popular travel islands, but I’m here to tell you that the real gems live on St. Croix.

Besides the warm breeze and the liquid sunshine moments, there’s something magical in those clear blue waters that makes everything about this island in the Caribbean Sea the easiest plane ticket you will ever purchase. From the absurdly polite Crucians (aka the locals) to the best gosh darn fresh lobster I’ve ever had, there’s a trillion reasons why I need a vacation home there. View Full Post

Plus size model Ashley Graham

Hey beauties, it’s your girl Maui!

I don’t know if you have heard but plus size history was made a few days ago. Yes, Ashley Graham became the first plus size model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated while Precious Lee became the first African-American plus-size model on the inside pages. This is a huge accomplishment for both of these curvy beauties as well as the plus size community. However, a cloud of negativity followed that which has me really disenchanted about some individuals within the plus size community. View Full Post

I know I know, the last thing you wanna be thinking about while you’re on vacation is skin care. But I promise you, it’s something that you need to take into consideration before you leave. Before blogging I never took my skin care seriously, and I really paid for my neglect with each vacation. I had sudden breakouts, excess dryness and wrinkles in places that I care not to share!

I had the opportunity to cruise the Eastern Caribbean (thanks Princess Cruises) where the temperatures are much warmer and filled with humidity. While it was my first time to St. Thomas and St. Maarten, I have traveled to St. Croix in the U.S Virgin Islands in the past and I remember the air not being on my side.

Your travel skin care routine needs to be a little different than your home skin care. Your skin will face a number of challenges while you’re traveling so you’ll have to compensate for a few things. Keeping all that in mind, take good notes because below are some gems you’ll need for your next excursion. View Full Post
