Rocking Any Size In Swimsuits For All’s Origami Swimsuit

Be Fluid No matter your size I hope you live to your fullest and freshest. Channel your inner Rihanna who is a fashion killa at a size 0 and a size 4/6. Sometimes our bodies change (have y’all heard of hormones, stress, environment?). One week we’re smaller and a few weeks later we’re bigger. Don’t spend your week agonizing over 5 pounds or 25 pounds you’ve recently lost or gained. Body positivity is about accepting

Chunk Travels: Weird California Road Trip

California is a big-ass state Cali has so much to see and do. You could never leave LA country and never run out of new things to explore. Butttttt that ain’t my style and I was going crazy wanting to see some more of the state. I set off with my bestie boys, George & Bystry, to explore the east side of the state up to Bodie on a Wednesday-Saturday. Burbank Uhhhh, due to LA

Be Your Own Damn Disco Ball In Isolated Heroes Plus Size Line

Do you like the nightlife? Do you like to boogie? If you answered yes to any of these questions then chances are you also are a fan of disco balls and shiny things. Me, too. By transitive property that means you’ll love UK clothing brand Isolated Heroes. There was a time in the not so distance past where plus-size women were relegated to loose fitting bland clothes, empire waist dresses, and a-line skirts. Okay, that’s

My Struggles With Food & Eating Disorders in Flavor Town aka the Guy Fieri Look Book

Reading “Guy-talian Nachos” and “Awesome Pretzel Chicken Tenders” off of Guy Fieri’s Guy’s American Kitchen Bar Menu was when I realized that I had maybe hit rock bottom. Not because I was in NYC at a Guy Fieri restaurant (also, no shade…. I clearly love Guy), but because I was at work in Chicago and somehow had spent an hour looking at Guy Fieri menus.  This was really common for me to spend hours looking

Boys Wanna Be Her

Boys Wanna Be Her  They sure fricken do. Ladies and gentleman and everything between, I have been slacking on you all. Things have been so crazy since moving because I’m out here hustling. In the 9 weeks I’ve been here I’ve only slept in once… that kind of hustling. My brain is extremely fried right now. Yolo. But, I promise I got some fresh funky fantastic coming your way soon. Since moving to LA I’ve

Moving and Grooving My Jiggle In My Pakrat

Every chubby and fat chick knows what it’s like to be in the gym while people stare as you jiggle on the treadmill. Instead of focusing on your body you’re focusing on “am I jiggling too much?” and “shit, are all those people laughing at me?” We feel shame at the gym and we’re shamed if we don’t go to the gym. It makes taking care of your body pretty damn difficult when you’re shamed

Rocking The GabiFresh Milestone Bikini To Ring In My Bikiniversary

She Wore An Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Cactus Bikini Last year in March I was on vacation in San Diego. Not only that, but I had recently purchased a ballin out dope bikini from the GabiFresh x Swimsuitsforall 2016 line. On our last day in San Diego I finally worked up the courage to do a photoshoot in my beautiful fatkini. The whole entire shoot I was nervous as hell and embarrassed even though there

The Definitive Chunky & Funky Guide to Chicago

Cool Things To Do In Chicago I’m going to start with my favorite thing to do and that’s sit by Lake Michigan. Go sit by the water on a warmish winter day or watch the boats come into the harbors and you won’t be amazing. Some mornings I wake up early just to go watch the sun rise over Lake Michigan. Damn, it’s so fricken beautiful. If you don’t spend time at the Lake or

Orange Creamsicle Velvet Dress & Duster From Boohoo Plus

Velvet is at an all time high So why not take it to the next level? This winter velvet is popping up everywhere as it should because it’s hella soft while our skin is dry and crackly. It’s all about balance, right? I’ve been going strong in the velvet game technically since I was a baby, but most recently the past few years. You’ve seen me rock some pink crushed velvet and a velvet crop

I’m Just Too Much For You… In My Isolated Heroes Sequin Duster

” I fucks with you ’til I realize I’m just too much for you. I’m just too much for you.” – Beyonce (because she knows everything) Some of us are wasting time being disingenuous, not to other people, but to ourselves. We worry “am I too much of this or not enough of that?” Well, the truth is for some people we are too much or not enough. That’s just how it goes. Instead of
