As co-founder of theCURVYcon, my dreams are coming true, which also means that my work life is a lot more demanding than it used to be. This is a beautiful thing, but I don't get to spend as much time just hanging out as I used to. I'm noticing that people in my life are much more appreciative of time spent together, than they are a perfect meal made from scratch. So, I do the best I can and give myself grace so that I "don't make perfect the enemy of good" -Voltaire

A few months ago, I moved into my dream apartment here in New York City. This apartment is the first time I've rented a space completely on my own with no help from my parents. I'm growing up, yall!

At first when I moved in, I was really intimidated by the idea of interior decorating. I was convinced that I didn't have the talent for home decor. I reached out to a bunch of decorators to help me, but no one I contacted was the right fit.

I'm learning in life, that if something isn't coming together smoothly, it means I need to take a pause and revisit my approach. 

I sat in a semi-furnished apartment for MONTHS and then it finally hit me... maybe I should be the one to decorate my space! I know what I like and more importantly, I know how I want my home to feel.

As a Cancerian (June 26th), my living space is like my crab shell. I want to feel safe and cozy! So, maybe my new apartment would feel most like home if I had a hand in decorating it myself.

This week, Tanya Gold saw a plus size mannequin at the Nike store and had a full meltdown, which she poured into her article for the guardian. When I read her words I laughed, got irritated, then I opened my laptop and started writing this post

When I first got my sisterlocks, I remember being so worried about taking care of them. I was nervous that my sisterlocks would unravel, snap off, not lock or even worse... not grow as long as I wanted them to. Five years later, I know that my hair isn't as delicate and fragile as it was that first year when I was locing. 

Now that I've relaxed about my hair a bit I'm much more open to trying new products in my hair. Over the past few months I've been slowly testing new things to see what I like.

These are the products I use on my sisterlocks:

It’s no secret that dresses are my thing.  They’re feminine, easily dressed up or down and if I’m rushing in the morning, I love making one decision on what to wear in the morning instead of mixing and matching tops and bottoms. I don’t mind denim in the summer, but there’s something so special about floating around in a summer dress. After a long weekend in the Hamptons (did you catch my friends doing an EPIC runway show around the pool on my instagram stories? lol) I came back to NYC still wanting to squeeze a little bit more out of my long weekend. I bought a bunch of plus size summer essentials from Lane Bryant, including this adorable fit…
