Birthday Trip|Cancun

Getting to Cancun was a journey in and of itself. I recently filmed a story time video on my Youtube Channel sharing the drama that surrounded this trip. Be sure to check it out after reading this post! For my birthday my best friend and travel buddy Kyla visited Cancun, Mexico. We had an amazing time! Kyla and I travel together quite often (5 countries and counting)but every trip is different and the memories we share are endless!

Swimsuit Sunday’s

img_9208

Growing up, some of my GREATEST memories happened while wearing a bathing suit! Every Sunday my family would pack up our stuff and either spend the day at the beach or have a cook up by the river; which was a full day affair. I know that my fellow Dominicans can relate. Heading to the sea we would enjoy the sea bath until it was time to head to the river with our bags, baskets, buckets or any other form of carrying our essentials for the days activities! We would either have packed our shampoo and condition or just simply pick the hibiscus flowers to wash our hair, soap to wash clothes and food to keep us all day long unless if we decided to cook a one pot on the river stone. Just by writing this I’m being nostalgic! Even after the childish memorable eras we still would go to the beach without the “adults, adults” for a drink up…which lead to more wonderful memories.

I was going through my pictures and realized I have so many pictures in a bathing suit. Sure I like the way I look in a bathing suit but mostly I love being at the beach or river. That’s my happy place.

I follow a few hashtags like AsForLita #TittyTuesday and TheLocdDoc #TshirtTuesday so this idea really came from them. I’d like to introduce Swimsuit Sunday’s. On Sundays i’ll post a short post here on the blog and on Instagram either reviewing a bathing suit or just posing for the fun of it. I will also feature anyone who post using the hashtag #SwimSuitSunday and tagging me. I’ve created an Instagram highlight on my page that features will be added to.

For most people being in a bathing suit is associated with happiness, unfortunately this is not the case for everyone. I want this hashtag to help people see others who look like them rocking their favorite bathing suit. I encourage everyone of all shapes and sizes to participate.

Day ‘n’ Nite

img_8201

This past weekend I visited my Alma Mater, Oakwood University to celebrate my best friend Rilene’s graduation. Oakwood is an HBCU, and at every gathering everyone comes to slay! I wanted to wear something stylish but comfortable. I opted for the suit from Premme  Premme is a plus size clothing line by Plus size blogger Gabi Fresh. In this post I’m showing you how to take an outfit from day to night.

For the day part of the graduation, I wanted a more dressy look. The jacket of the suit is way too big for me and I still wanted to wear it so I cinched it in with my Gucci belt. A belt is the perfect accessory to take your outfit to the next level. I wore these simple Steve Madden Sandals. I’ve had these shoes for over 3 years. They are so comfortable. Whenever I want to wear heels and I know I’ll be doing a lot of standing/ walking I always reach for these shoes

Because Oakwood is extra, there is another ceremony in the evening. I packed light for this trip so I planned on using the same outfit for the 2nd service. The second service is really long so I wanted to be very comfortable and laid back. Here’s what I came up with.

img_8436I took my jacket off and I am wearing the same body suit that I wore in the morning. I switched my heels for some Adidas Superstars. Superstars are one of the most comfortable sneakers I own. My feet thanked me for getting out of the heels. I also changed my lip color from nude to bright pink and added some hoop earrings. The night time look is more playful but just as cute in my opinion.

Bahama Mama

I did my first poll on Instagram and asked what you guys wanted to see from my trip to the Bahamas. Outfits or Activities. The poll was pretty close so I’ll do a mix of both, win win right?

Two weeks ago, my best friend, cousin and I went to Nassau for the weekend and we had a blast! Honestly, if there is sunshine and the beach a good time is bound to happen.
