This past weekend was full of sunshine and positive vibes! On Saturday I decided to spontaneously take some pictures with a photographer named Amir who has been shooting for about 3 months. We decided to take a couple of shoots in West Oakland at the Shoreline. This is truly a hidden venue, the beach feel and the view of the Bay Bridge just gave me a serene atmosphere with positive energy. Amir’s photography captured my each moment, my vibrant colors, his eye for photography is amazing!
The other day someone asked me where do you get your confidence from? I told them from within, its my melanin that pops… my beautiful chocolate skin that gives me life! I love my smile and to smile especially in the mirror brings positive affirmations out my mouth. Cardi B said it perfectly “my biggest competition is myself”. Make sure to live the best you, have positive energy and surround yourself around good vibes.

Remember that Curvaceous and Plus size women are Top -of-the-line, Nothing less, ALWAYS, 2 Snaps to that!
When I travel having new swimsuits means a lot! I really wanted a bathing suit that fits good, but ordering online is a hit or miss for a plussize beauty like myself. After searching for a while I found this Tadaao Racerback one piece swimsuit from Amazon! I wanted a plain color bathing suit that I could put Fancydime across the front for my 35th birthday to Barbados. After I bought the swimsuit, I just went to the mall and got it added.
This Amazon swimsuit comes in 4 colors; wine red, black, navy blue, and light blue only for 21.99. The fit is tight but felt great on my body. I’m wearing a size 22/24. Every day I’m loving all my curves, rolls and thickness more and more. Confidence is built from the inside, love who you are and look in the mirror and say Yassss to all the beauty! Since I’ve been in Barbados the men have been calling me “Sugar”, they say I look sweet.
Plus size and Curvaceous women are TOP of the line and nothing less, Always 2SNAPS to that!
January is a great time to find a cute Valentine or in my case Galentine dress to wear in February month of Love! Usually a couple of my girlfriends get together to go out to celebrate “galentine”. We have dinner and celebrate us loving each other.
Last month I found this super cute rose print v-neck dress from Ashley Stewart. Even if I just going out with my friends on the day of love, you can keep it fabulous!
This rose print dress makes my curves feel so good. When I know that a dress has some spandex in it, I always go up a size. Usually I am a size 22, but I went up one size in this dress and it fits perfect. The material is soft, double-knit fabrication with a v-neckline and back zipper. The best part of this dress other than the rose print is the tee-style, short sleeves. This dress is a web exclusive item.
Hope you have a great month of February!
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!
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.
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.
Remember Plus Size and Curvaceous Women are Top of the line, Nothing less, Always 2SNAPS to that!
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.
