Hello September! I have a good feeling this month is going to be amazing. It’s already off to a great start! This morning I saw the September cover for Plus Model Magazine and it blew me away! Anita Marshall looks fabulous! Susan Moses did an incredible job styling for the shoot.
I’m looking forward to Fall and all of the fierce and fabulous things that comes with the romantic season. Every year I like to switch things up a bit because as the seasons change I do too. I have my eyes on some cool new looks.
Have you heard of yarn locs? Some call them genie locs, faux locs or yarn wraps, whatever floats your boat I am loving them! Black Onyx of Alikay Natural recently posted a picture of her yarn locs on Instagram. I’m so in love with the look. They look like real locs and they’re a cool protective style. I think they are absolutely gorgeous!
I also have my eye on the new cosmetic line by Shea Moisture. Their line is in Target and the pigmentation looks like its good quality. Have you tried it yet?
I’m so ready for fashion week and the fierce things that’s soon to come! What are you looking forward to?
Fall is right around the corner! What better way to start off the fashionable season than a new hair cut and color? Are you transitioning or thinking about doing a big chop? Here are my favorite pixie and tapered styles I’ve seen online.
Which one is your favorite?
Eloquii has gotten my attention again! Their latest fashion forward pieces and gorgeous diverse models have made me fall in love with the brand again. Here’s what I have my eyes on.
I am totally adoring Philomena Kwao from London. She’s the new fierce brown beauty who has brought color to Torrid, Lane Bryant, Addition Elle and more. She is gorgeous and it’s so refreshing to see her showing her beauty in front of the camera for the plus size industry. I can’t wait to see where she will be next! Isn’t she everything?
I met Meechy Monroe and her sister Vaughn while I was working at Whole Foods. They were so sweet and kind to me and I will never forgot their kindness!
Please find it in your heart to help her fund her medical cost due to brain cancer. You can donate at www.giveforward.com and you can share her story with #GetwellMeechy hashtag.
February was an amazing month! I turned 25. I got the internship of my dreams. I got some awesome clothes from the Gabi Fresh Closet Sale. I went to a fabulous photo shoot. I finally got the Samsung Note 3. I ate a lot and laughed even more.
I know March is going to be even more fabulous, fun and productive.
Here’s February in review:
Time really does fly when you are having fun! 2013 was an amazing fun year for me and I will cherish going to New York for the first time for Full Figure Fashion Week, going to The Mrs. Carter Show to see Beyonce, and networking with successful women I admire.
Next month I will be turning 25 years old. I’m ready to make some giant steps toward my dreams, so I can start living the life I’ve always dreamed of. My journey starts with my health. Last year I put so much focus on starting my career, that I neglected to take care of my health. After much thought I decided that I will become a vegetarian. Becoming a vegetarian is something I’ve always wanted to do, because I eat a lot of meat and not enough veggies. So I plan to transition as a pescatarian while I transition into a vegetarian. Which means I can still eat seafood.
This year my goal is to create a healthy curvy lifestyle. I want to have a balanced fun life. Being able to breathe and walk up a flight of stairs without gasping for air is what I’m looking forward to. Joining a dance or fitness class will help me be more social than just going to work and coming home. I’m looking to see if I can take a graduate course this spring, to see if I would like to go to grad school to get a master’s degree.
Last year I learn that making your dreams come true takes time. Everything won’t happen in the time you wish, but if you stay determined and faithful to your dreams slowly but surely it will come to past.
Happy New Year’s!
