10 Year High School Reunion: A Reflection of 2002-2006 for a Night!!!

So this past weekend I attended and survived my 10 year high school reunion!!! Yikes, it’s been 10 years already!!! I am not sure if I should be grateful, concerned or a little bit of both. I am grateful that I am still alive 10 years post HS and over these past years I feel like I have grown a lot personally. As for being concerned, I am getting further and further away from my youth and as we all know that can be scary.

Healthy Hydration: Stay Cool & Calm During Summer Workouts!!!

It’s officially summer, woo hoo!! Spring 2016 was a definite flop and we are finally getting some warm days here in NYC. This is my favorite time of year to get outdoors and participate in doing all of the active things that I love, such as extended walks, cycling, swimming and volleyball!!! While doing all of these activities I make sure that I stay cool and well hydrated, because catching a heat stroke is not cute!!!

Curvy Con 2016

Bigger, bolder, better!!! The Curvy Con 2016 was all that and more!!! This year was absolutely electrifying, I had an opportunity to network with other like minded women, shop and be exposed to other majorly successful plus size contenders out there, not only in the fashion world but in music and comedy as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed the panels and all of the positive messages that the speakers had to share. However, one thing that really spoke to me and thrived my inspiration was the message of Loving your truth!!! I felt that this message encompasses everything that a person needs to be fully confident within themselves. Being able to love your truth will allow you to claim who are as an individual and what you have to offer to yourself and the world. Loving your truth means that you are able to love yourself and your flaws!! Finding love in who you are doesn’t mean that you have to stop improving, because the person that you are meant to be is always evolving. Recognizing your truth will help you to grow with any changes that you may be facing in your life now or in the future!! Going forward I am planning to incorporate this message into all aspects of my own life. Now onto the fashion…

Down with the Denim!!

For this year’s look, I wanted to have a more laid back style but still look put together. I decided on wearing a form fitting denim dress. I thought that this dress was casual but still feminine and I just loved the way that it flattered my curves. I paired the dress with light shrug and some jeweled wedges for a little extra sparkle!

Dress: This dress is from Ashley Stewart, Size 28, unfortunately it is sold out, but a little birdie told me that it may be back in stock soon, so keep an out for this on their website!

Shrug: Torrid, Size 5x

Shoes: Avenue, Size 12,
they did run big, I should have gone with size 11, my true size.

Curvy Con 2015 Highlights

Hey guys, this is my first ever blog post and I thought what a better topic to talk about than the Curvy Con!! With the Curvy Con 2016 just being days away, I wanted to relive some of the highlights from last year’s event. The Curvy Con was such an amazing event, for the first time in my life I was able to interact with so many plus size beauties and it felt phenomenal. Not only did I feel ultra confident, I felt inspired!!  After the event I was so full of life, I had an opportunity to bond with a good friend of mine, meet some of my favorite plus size bloggers, do a little shopping and also some style watching as well.

Being at the Curvy Con made me feel like I was literally living in a plus size blog!!! Weekly I go to my favorite blogs for style ideas, when I am feeling stressed or down and their positivity always brings me right back up, being at that event in person was just a boiling pot of positive energy and I cannot wait to experience it again this year. After the Curvy Con I thought to myself, Why don’t I start a blog of my own blog? , I thought about, I dreamt about it, it has been something I wanted to do for a while now; I even set up my own blog web page, but never posted anything. But I can now finally say a year later that I am ready to start this journey and here it goes, just like that crossing #6 off my bucket list Start a Blog! Let this adventure begin!!!

Here is what I wore to Curvy Con 2015, I wanted to have a classy look but still be comfortable. I went ahead and wore RED to make a BOLD statement, I feel a little red dress is not only classy but fun as well. I paired this swing dress with a black shrug, some wedge sandals and a sequin clutch to tie the look together.
