Museum Of Ice Cream With The Bestie!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? I like anything with with pecans or walnuts; pecan praline and butter pecan are two of my favorites but my ultimate favorite is RUM RAISIN! If you haven’t tried rum raisin ice cream its delicious and will make you want to go to the Caribbean islands. The rum and raisin mix is an island in your mouth! LOL (I just made that up).

Since my bestie, Fenicia believes that she is an ice cream connoisseur we could not let the MUSEUM Of ICE CREAM come to San Francisco without us seeing it! Fenicia eats ice cream about 3x a week and she likes exotic flavors, but her must have flavor is strawberry!

When we arrived at the museum the wait in line was about 2min, our time slot was 4:00pm, and we were greeted with some Dove chocolates! I loved the energy of the employees, I’m telling you it was really like Disneyland. Each part of the museum has a greeter that tells you little bit about ice cream, we created a team name “The Chocolate Swirl Sprinkles”! We got a chance to be a kid again, we played ring toss on whip cream bottles, sat on a unicorn and tasted unicorn ice cream, went through Gummie Land, jumped in a sprinkles pool, ate cotton candy, tried Japanese ice cream, and explored the history about ice cream all in one place.

Throughout the entire museum you get samples- old school pop rocks candy, mini unciorn ice cream, mochi (Japanese ice cream), and cotton candy. My bestie and I fell in love with a new flavor Peach Bellini ice cream. I really need to find out where they sell it….DELICIOUS!

If you have not been to the museum of ice cream yet they just announced an extension until February in San Fran! Make sure you go online to get your tickets, they are $38 each. Some recommendations are, take Bart (get off on Powell Street and walk a block), wear something comfy and socks so you can jump into the sprinkle pool, eat before but save your room for dessert at the museum (the samples of sweets are delicious), they only accept cards no cash, charge your phone for pictures, buy one souvenir from the gift shop and send a cute ice cream postcard to ask your friend on a ice cream date!

HBCU Homecoming Weekend

A quick weekend getaway to my first HBCU (Historical Black College University) Homecoming! The sound of the Marching band playing, loud music in the parking lot and the smell of ribs, and the blue juice was flowing I knew it was gonna be a Fabulous weekend. For those that don’t know about blue juice, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated makes a great adult beverage.

Homecoming was great way to see educated African-Americans all in one place. Coming from a school, San Francisco State University that doesn’t have a football team I never really experienced the true life of a homecoming. This experience was undescribable and I can’t wait to go my next one next year.

My Pardon My Fro carry on fit everything that I needed for my weekend getaway! I love the Black Afros and gals on the carry on luggage. When you order just know that it may take about 3 weeks to get, each one is made to order.

Outfit deets:Lane Bryant skirt and top, royal blue shirt from Ashley Stewart.

LakeSide with my Wrap Dress

Since my cousin is in town from the ATL I decided to have a small gathering at Lake Merritt in Oakland with my friends. When sitting lakeside I always wear something lite and this Who What Wear Collection Target’s Ruffle Wrap Dress fits me perfectly.

The light blue and white stripes wraps around you creating a tide knot in the front of the dress. The fit runs a little big, I got a 3X in the dress but could have sized down to a 2X. The best part of this dress is the sleeves and the high low effect! I don’t like the small snap button near the chest area because it keeps unsnapping, I just put a safety pin to hold it in place. I paired my outfit with a purse and shades from the flea market. Then I grabbed my Ross flowers and bucket filled with my good food and wine.

“Mama Africa”

Strong, determined, stylish, intelligent, warrior, struggle, and a survivor all come to my mind when I think about “Mama Africa”.

I’ve been looking for an African print skirt and so happy that I found one that I was able to try on in person. When I went to LA a few months ago I stop by the Slauson Super Mall (LA’s Swapmeet) and came across a Ghanaian shop called African Fashion (Booth #F18) that sells everything! I couldn’t pass up a $40 deal. The fit of the skirt is great, plus it has a lining underneath which holds me in and POCKETS! Yassss.

Braided Up × Swimsuits For All’s Gabi Fresh Collection

 This is the perfect swimwear outfit to feel sexy but covered and be able to go swimming in the entire floral print. 

Last weekend I went to Raging Waters in San Jose and was able to relax in the lazy river, fun tube slides, and jump through all the waves in the wave pool. The material is the best thing about this collection because when you wear this Swimsuit for all Gabi Fresh’s Queen of Bikini swimwear in the water it drys right away. Yay! And 2Snaps to that.

I wore the two piece purple bikini with the cover up. This is from last year’s collection but there are plenty of options with Gabi Fresh’s new collection. The bottoms are in a size 24, top is 18 E/F and the cover up is a 22/24. 

In addition to me pulling this swimwear out of the closet… Peaches, my hair stylist got me to step out the box and created a different style for me. The braids are cornrolled on roll in the front and individuals in the back, took a long time but worth the wait!

Remember that Plus Size and Curvaceous women are Top of the line and Nothing less Always 2SNAPS to that!

A Taste from Havana, Cuba

This past weekend was a Bridal Shower at Havana Restaurant in Walnut Creek,Ca. It’s an honor to be apart of my sorority sisters special day as one of her bridesmaids.

The taste of Havana consided of a set menu of Fried Platains, Black Bean Soup, Paella and a variety of Latin desserts. Everything was delicious! I enjoyed the Cuban music, the guests, gifts, games and sweets. I hosted the game portion, my favorite game was “How Well Does The Bride and Groom Know Each”. We asked the groom 10 questions that he has to answer about the bride, the bride then answers the questions with answers that the groom might say. It sounds confusing but the Bride-to-Be got 9 right and she got to hear his recorded voice on the computer with his answers. Sweeet!

I wore a hunter green peplum dress with thin straps that forms a sexy caged look from Charlotte Russe (similar). It was comfy and paired with my Lane Bryant black shrug and heels. I love one pieces! 

Enjoy your week!

Hello Palm Springs

SNOW in Palm Springs! Wow! The day after Christmas my mom decided to take the family on a rode trip to Palms Springs, I’ve been so many times but not in years. If you don’t know about Palms Springs here is some quick deets: Palm Springs is in the Sonoran Desert of Southern California, its known for its hot springs, stylish hotels, and spas. If you are into vintage boutiques, interior design shops and restaurants this is the place to be! Many people stop here when they go to Coachella because its surrounds that valley.

Usually we stay at my moms local Timeshare but this time the Hyatt Palm Springs was calling our names. The two bedroom suite is a perfect vaction getaway: two full size beds, two TV’s, pull out couch, balcony view of the main strip, mini fridge, and cute bathroom made my stay comfortable. 

My highlight of this trip was the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. First off let me tell you, if you want to go on this adventure be prepare to wait a couple of hours. Since my mom has a Timeshare we bought $20 tickets from them which includes access to the front the line. The 8,516 feet view is worth the wait. This is the world’s largest rotating tramcar. It takes you all the way up to Mt. San Jacinto State Park which has many things to do: camp grounds, hiking, nature exhibits, cafe, and even snow where my cousin and I tried to build a snowman. 

Even though it was cold I wore my INC Faux-Leather Colorblocked Pencil Skirt. Im a size 20/22 but this skirt fits small so I sized up to have more room to a 24. I love this faux-leather skirt, the side zipper brings some edge to it.I paired this skirt with a tank top and brown boots (last years) both from Forever21 Plus, a Black Suede Fringe Jacket (similar), black Ashley Stewart tights (I get the largest size because they run small to me), and the purse and shades were gifts.

I hope you loved my outfit and my adventures in Palm Springs with my family because I had a lovely time. Next month my girlfriends and I are coming to stay which is exciting. 

Remember Plus Size women are Dime pieces which is Top of the line,Always, 2SNAPS to that!
