Philomena is pure perfection!

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?

#GetWellMeechy

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.

Thanks!

February in Review

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:

Hello 2014!

image

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!
