September Inspirational & Motivational Challenge

Inspiration, Motivation
Hey Loves,

I honestly can't believe that it's ALREADY September. I feel like we just rang in the new year. But September for me means fall is on it's way and that is one of my favorite season. I mean let's be real I know you all are anxious for Starbucks to re-release that Pumpkin Spice latte...don't lie lol. But for this post, I wanted to do something a bit different. I have been thinking about ways to change my thought process and ways to put myself in healthier state of mind. A lot of times when we talk about health we tend to neglect the mental aspect. So I want to make September an Inspirational & Motivational month.

Reclaiming Your Beauty; with Artist Jonquel Norwood


Hey Loves,

I am so honored to being writing this post. If you follow me on instagram you know that I have a major obsession with artist Jonquel Norwood. I 1st met her via instagram after I saw that she drew my bathing suit look from Essie Golden's plus size pool part back in June. After that I started to really browse her instagram & website to see what else she had to offer. After grabbing some Chipotle, she & I decided to teamed up and she allowed me to sit down with her to get to know her, take a look at some of her work & actually watch her in action. I have to say, this girl is really talented. It is something to be admired to watch a young woman bring things to life through art. Her work speaks so much volume. Her drawings have a way of blending reality with fantasy. She knows how to capture our sassiness, our vulnerability, our sensuality, our humor and all aspects of being a woman.

The TULLE Project

Hey Loves,

I always love when brands and bloggers work together for a good cause. Contemporay plus size brand Eloquii has teamed with 4 AMAZING bloggers on The TULLE Project. They reach out to Nicolette Mason, Rochelle Johnson, Margie Ashcroft, & Mo Handahu (all of whom are bloggers with a style all their own) to out their own personal spin on the Eloquii Tulle Skirt, to be auctioned off. All the proceeds from the auction with go to the charities selected by each blogger. How cool is that right?!

So when I got the chance to collab with NJ Lottery to play 4 of their Fast Play games, I jumped at the chance.

New Jersey Lottery Fast Play

(Red Hot Numbers is my favorite) When I heard about these new games I went to the 7/11 around the corner from my house to pick up each game to try my luck. I figured hey I have anywhere from 25%-33% chance of winning. I bought 2 Bling Bling Bucks, 1 Slots of Fun, 1 Red Hot Numbers & 2 Fast Cash. When I got to the counter I realized I forgot how many of each game I wanted, so the cashier kindly showed me the a list of the games and how much each game cost. I picked out what I need, and paid for my games. Please keep in mind that you will need to pay in cash. I eagerly went home to see if I had any winning tickets.

And surprisingly ya girl one a whole $2!!!! Yup I won $2 dollars on one of my Fast Cash games. It's the little things that make you happy.

Fanm Djanm Edge


Hey Loves,

I'm sure you're sick of seeing these boyfriend jeans from Forever 21 by now. lol But I just couldn't help rockin' them with my new favorite t-shirt from Fanm Djanm. Fanm Djanm is owned by my good friend Paola and she offers the most AMAZING headwraps. I met her a year & 1/2 ago I've been obsessed with her ever since. She gifted me this t-shirt knowing that I would love it. And normally I don't like to pair my outfit with the location, but I found this beautiful mural in my town and I knew this was the location for me!

Late Summer Outfit

Hey Loves,

it's mid August already, can you believe it? This post is just to show a quick day look. The other day I had to run to a couple press preview and a meeting. I usually like to be cute, put together & causal. So I'm opted for this easy look. If you've been following my blog for some time you should know this top quite well. This shirt is always 'go-to' around this time of the year. And if you saw my last outfit post you know my love these Fashion to Figure skinny jeans.
