MOTIVATION: Losing confidence during COVID

I think my confidence levels are falling and I blame COVID. I’ve chosen to stay home as much as possible to help flatten the curve – it’s TOUGH!

MY STYLE: Pre-Fall Transition Looks with Jessica London

As fast as it came, it’s going to be gone! Yes, girl, summer is saying farewell and my favorite season is around the corner – FALL! Shout out to the team at Jessica London for sending me some pre-fall looks to help me transition into the new season.

When you live in the south, it’s really hard to fully enjoy the Fall because it’s cold in the morning and blazing hot by noon. Great way to look wild and out of season! So, check out the following fall transition looks to aid you in your plus-size southern style. Continue reading “MY STYLE: Pre-Fall Transition Looks with Jessica London”

MY STYLE: The decision to TRY AGAIN

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.

#BloggerLife: I gave up on newsletters!

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.
