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.

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.

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!

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!
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!
Being from Cali I never really get to experience different seasons, but this past Thanksgiving I fell in Love with Winter! This was my first Thanksgiving spent with my Haitian fam in ATL, a well spent one must I add.
In addition to eating all the delicous Haitian food and the Rhum I went a lot of places with my cousins. After brunch one day I told my cousin to stop in this beautiful field with fall leaves. Its nothing like seeing brown leaves change to red and orange. Makes me wanna move to the south!
