Denim & Leopard Print

Hey Loves,

This was a quick outfit that I put together the other day. Actually wasn't so quick, it had been on my mind for some time, it was just a matter of having time off work to shoot it. But I think it's cute. I wanted a little pizzazz & some color. And it is still disrespectfully cold here in Jersey and being cute falls further & further down the list. But I think this look ties cute & warm (sort of) together. 

ATGCinPR; La Concha Resort


Hey Loves,


To kick off my Puerto Rico experience recap, I wanted to talk about the beautiful hotel the me & the guy stayed at our 1st two nights. We stayed at La Concha Resort! It is located right Condado, so it is perfect for those looking for tourist things to do. It's only a cab ride away from Old San Juan and all the history it has to offer. La Concha truly is a renaissance hotel, because there really loads to do, if you don't want to leave the hotel.

ATGCinPR; Sexy in Old San Juan


Hey Loves,


You all know I couldn't go to Puerto Rico and now have a photo shoot right! lol My guy was a total trooper and played the role of photographer while in Puerto Rico. I was completely inspired by the beautiful colors & architecture of the buildings in Old San Juan. They are basically every color of the rainbow. Greens, blues, yellows, reds. And they blend together. So when I looked at this dress I got from Fashion to Figure last summer, there was no question that I needed to shoot it in Old San Juan.

ATGCinPR; Curves on the Beach

Hey Loves,


This is the post I was most excited to write.Truth be told 1 main reason why I wanted to go to Puerto Rico was so I could visit Flamenco Beach & be sexy in my plus size swimwear. I bought like 8 bathing suits with me, so deciding which ones to shoot was SUPA hard. But Flamenco Beach was absolutely beautiful, the water was so clear, the sand was so white, it was fabulous. Definitely nothing like up here in Jersey. I couldn't wait to get on the beach with my Pina Colada and get in front of the camera. Check out the pics below. As always shout out to my guy for being my photographer. He always has an eye for a good photo.

All Black for Malcolm X

Anne Klein Cape Rafaella pants

Hey Loves,


First let me say I brake the cold for these pictures lol. But if you have been a follower of mine you know every year on this day I post an outfit in all black to honor Malcolm X. Why you may ask? Today marks the 50th anniversary of his assassination. On February 21st 1965 Malcolm X was assassinated at the Audubon Ballroom. Some people have their views about him & what he stood for. But for me, he was more than "the opposite of MLK" He believed in self expression, self love, building your own self up. He believed that bettering yourself started from the inside before waiting on the outside world. Was he a bit radical...sure, but sometimes you have to long beyond the media & the "character" he's portrayed to be.

Hey Loves,


If you followed me on instagram, twitter or my FB Fan Page you pretty much know exactly what I wore during my time in Puerto Rico. But I figured would post everything here. I'll also list the shopping details for everything. Please keep in mind, a lot of these items may not be available now, but I want you to use it as inspiration.
