A couple of weeks ago I was asked to model wedding gowns for local wedding retailer, Eleven Bridal. The bridal boutique was partnering with event planning organization Happily Connected. Happily Connected created this amazing bridal show experience where couples were introduced to boutique vendors ready to make their wedding wishes come true.
This is the last day of the Nashville Curves Swimsuit campaign. For the fourth year in a row, I’ve presented amazing women with outstanding influence in the Community. For 2019, I’ve attempted to expand our reach in Nashville. We now have an Instagram page, a Facebook group, and a hashtag that is gaining traction. Thank you for liking our photos and reading about the Class of 2019: Alexis, Ashanti, Kina, and Tiffany. Of course the questions come: How can I be down and WHAT are you doing next?
Meet Tiffany Janise! I’ve known Tiffany for a long time. She’s making her moves in Nashville as a plus-size model and influencer. Her petite-plus shape is truly adorable, but what’s even better is her amazing personality! Tiffany is a hard-worker and it’s evident on her blog and her photos. When I was casting influencers for this year’s campaign, Tiffany was the first on the list! Get ready to see her shine and advance in this modeling industry! Read more about Tiffany below!
It’s time to meet KINA! Kina works in E-Commerce and she’s an amazing stylist! I started following Kina before I ever met her in real life. Then, I met her in real life and was blown away by her amazing style and bubbly personality. I don’t think she meets a stranger. In addition, Kina stepped in when one of my other models had to step out. Some would say that Kina isn’t considered ‘plus-size’ but if you know anything about the fashion industry, anyone over a size EIGHT is considered plus.
Meet Ashanti! This mild-mannered corporate blogger packs alot of punch and influence. Once she start to speak, you are mesmerized by her immense knowledge of fashion and merchandising. On top of that, she’s a real good time! Whenever I see Ashanti at an event, I know it’s going to be worth my while! Read more below, and follow her on her fashion-friendly blog, Sashe Online!

Last week I posted about stepping outside my style box. I’m glad I did! Today’s look, this mixed pattern, black & white, work look was just right for my workday. Seriously, I was super scared to rock this look – it’s pretty bold. But once the team at Jessica London sent this month’s looks, I knew I HAD to wear this one ASAP! These pieces … Continue reading MY STYLE: Mixing Patterns with plus-size style
How many of my plus-size girls have been told what you SHOULDN’T WEAR? No tight, no stripes, no shorts, or cover your ‘problem’ areas! Yes, even in 2019 fat women are told what we should wear and how we should wear it. Even though I have my preferences, I’ll never tell anyone what they shouldn’t wear. Unless you aren’t wearing confidence, I have nothing to … Continue reading PLUS SIZE STYLE: Fat girls shouldn’t wear … summer edit
I quit my job two years ago to chase my dream. I wanted to be a full time creative: blogger, author, and digital content creator. I failed, we’ve discussed. I went back to the regular working world. My return wasn’t glorious; it was needed and necessary. Why? I was broke and broken.
Having a regular job (working for someone else) gives me structure and a paycheck. But it didn’t change my attitude. Many times I’ve showed up late or not ready to be my best at work. I didn’t want to be THERE, and it showed.
Happy first day of summer good people! Getting back on the wagon of giving you a new blogpost every week and adding a special touch, sending out a newsletter as well.
Yes, I’m going back to sending my bi-weekly newsletter as a way of keeping in contact with my diverse group of readers. As a strategist, I preach consistency. As a blogger, I haven’t been very consistent. “‘fess it, and fix it!” is what my old boss used to say, so here I am confessing.
My confession: I didn’t care about my newsletter I only cared about Instagram.
