Birds of a feather flock together…..and us birds flock to LOFT.

The past few months I have been seriously loving on LOFT for their celebration of body diversity. In February, the brand launched their Plus line, which I had been waiting years for! As a long-time customer of LOFT, I always shopped the brand but I couldn’t always wear certain items. Now, with the launch of the Plus line, I am able to shop everything and anything at LOFT, and let me tell you- it feels amazing.

With the addition of the plus options, LOFT is one of the most size inclusive brands with options for straight sizing, petite, tall, plus, and maternity. With all sizing options available for all bodi...

Well friends, its the start of a new week! While this week is going to be filled with amazing things like a quick trip to NYC and a Kanye inspired day party and art show on Saturday, I still have a bit of the the Monday blues, literally speaking with my new blue dress from UK brand, Yours Clothing

I think it can be agreed that Mondays are the hardest day out of the week. Its back to the grind and signifies we have 5 more days until weekend freedom again. Sigh. While we mostly hate on Monday, today I'm trying to be positive and share reasons to love Monday and ways to embrace the start of the new week with ease. 

Below are some tips on how to embrace Monday and fin...

 Last Friday I had the pleasure of working with ELOQUII to unveil their permanent location in Pentagon City Mall. The retailer opened the first ever pop-up store in Pentagon City in March, and with its success of outfitting women in the DC area with in-store plus options, was able to make the pop-up permanent, but in a new space.

I visited the brand new store on its first day open to unveil it to the Instagram community first hand, live on the ELOQUII account. It was an honor to participate in such a big event for the brand, and to say I had fun on the live Instagram would be an understatement. In addition to the IG live, I did a walk through of the store...

Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Swimsuits Direct, an online store dedicated to all things swimwear.

They carry swimwear for women, men, and children, and have a great variety of brands and styles.

My partnership with the brand gave me the opportunity to try out two of their latest swimsuits, both by the Raisins Curve brand. This also gave me the opportunity to spread some body confidence by photographing in swimsuits for my blog. Other than jeans, swimsuits are the most hated thing to shop for (in my opinion), and I know there is a lot of anxiety that comes with swimwear. Do I look ok? Is that person staring at my cellulite? Should I not be wearing this?- th...

 This picture right here ^, this is currently me celebrating the reopening of the permanent ELOQUII store here in the DC area in Pentagon City Mall. Its so crazy for me to think I have only been an ELOQUII customer less than a year, but my relationship to the brand goes way deep. ELOQUII has changed- actually, enhanced is a better word- enhanced my personal style. It has shown me that I can break out of my comfort zone and try new things. It has re-introduced me to color and prints. It has even boosted my confidence by providing shapes and styles that fit perfectly. 

Today, the pop-up store closes and the permanent store will be unveiled. When the store origin...
