Wig Slayage: Fall Hair Colors

When a lady changes her hair things happen magically. So many times women hold on to outdated styles and colors as it’s who they have been. I love the season changes as a great excuse for me to try new colors and cuts. Now I’m #teamnatural so I will always go to the aid from a wig which is great for me who travels all over the US  and no one has time for all those products.

So I am pulling my fav looks for this fall. I adore color and big hair and put those together and you have most dopeness mix.

Red Heads do it Better

I love me some red hair and have always been drawn to the sultriness of it. For fall, Auburn shades will be a hot color.

What a Plus Size Chick Can Do: Quick Workout

Hello, beauties! Fitness will always be an important factor of being a phenomenal woman. It’s not all about being snatched or skinny but working out helps you to think better, have better control over your life and ultimately lead your best life possible. Many of the images circling around fitness are very unproductive. As a black woman, I am told I must have a fat ass, flat tummy, and thick thighs but not too much in order to be accepted into the mainstream black beauty definition. Being someone who has always bounced to her own beat, this never appealed to me especially as I grow older. In my youth, I did believe that notion and did so many things to be able to get slim-thick. I look back at the younger me and want to sit her down and child you have lost your damn mind. You are wonderful and awesome right now.

Weight loss has been a rollercoaster ride for me for the last few years. However, 2017 has been one of the best years for me in the fitness area not because of major weight loss but the way I view my body. I can look at myself and say I love my body. I have never been able to do that and be truthful. Now there are some things I wish were different but if I never lost another pound, I would still rock the hell out of my body.

In this latest installment which is sponsored by Rainbeau Curves, I will show you some easy workouts that you could do at home or at a small gym to help you reach your healthy life journey goals. Rainbeau Curves is a premier plus athletic-leisure line that comes in adorable fierce prints and provides dynamic support. No one wants to worry about spilling out or mooning people while doing burpees.

Black Owned Skincare: Fall Skincare with Minimo Beauty

The fall season always makes me want to start looking at my skin care even closer in order to prepare my skin for the harsh winter months ahead. Most skin care is prevention in order to keep it looking its best. In August I got a sample of a product that was amazing to me instantly. I am picky about my skin care products as well I’m bougie and like the best for myself.

Minimo is a natural skincare and body line that was created by the wonderful people who created KeraVeda. I love that they are black owned and operated and are made with really awesome ingredients. The story behind the brand really resonated with me as the desire to have a minimalist flow of products that are highly effective is key.

I was sent some amazing goodies from the line that I want to share. In this video, I will be doing a demo and review on each product. I will show how I mesh the products into my normal skin care regimen.  Go to their site myminimo.com to get your goodies.

Apple Shaped Girls Need Love too: Body Positivity for Non Curvy Girl

Welcome to the greatest season of the year Fall!  I’m happy we are in a new month and my fav season is coming rapidly. As a black blogger and a plus size blogger, I notice a lot of things that aren’t equal in the sphere. I don’t have a big bootie and tiny waist. I don’t have type 3a hair natural curls and I’m not fair skinned. All these things could be a barrier I just see it as I’m just the greatest thing ever— not generic. I wanted to share my thoughts for those who may be like me who have thicker waistlines, broad shoulders, no bootie or tiny booties. Your worth is not wrapped into your body. Read more
