Cherry Cherry Boom Boom

If you live in LA you know it's SO hot right now. I have no motivation to look cute right now, for real but I went to Charlotte Russe and I fell in love. I saw this wine colored lace dress and had to have it. 

I promise to give more love to The B Word and serve looks for SLAYtember. I'm coining it right here, right now: September = SLAYtember

Have an amazing week ++

Bad For You

I was hesitant to post these pictures but in the name of body positivity and not giving a fuck, I'm going to post them. Learning to love my body has been a journey, a year ago I don't think I would have had the confidence to post, let alone pose for these pictures.

I was hesitant because I was thinking about what other people's perception would be. I even asked my mom if I looked like a thot and after I explained what that meant, she said I did haha!

But I'm going to have to disagree with you mom and post these because I feel empowered, confident and dare I say sexy?! Hmm I don't know if I dare that far but I love what my body looks like with every dimple, stretch mark and perfect imperfection so I'm going to celebrate that. Ladies like Gabi Gregg from Gabi Fresh, Danielle Brooks and Nadia Aboulhosn all inspired me to do a bodysuit shoot. They're the real MVPS!!


How is everyone doing with the challenge??

#BEinyourskin Table Talk

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you know that back in July my Girl Squad and I filmed a table talk to go with the #BEinyourskin 31 Day Body Confidence Challenge. Today Part One airs! During this three part series we discuss body image, body confidence, insecurities, races, beauty ideals, male validation, everything women and men struggle with everyday. I'm so excited to share this with all of you and for everyone to see/hear me rather then just seeing images. 

Enjoy ++
