How to go on a Virtual Date + What to Wear!

You should probably know something about me– I enjoy dating. I want to be a wife and a mom and I date with that in mind. Each date I go on teaches me something about myself and what I want. When I know what I don’t want, it’s much easier to identify what I do want. 

What I want is the most important guide to how I choose a partner, so I don’t shy away from the dating process.

I’ve dated guys that I met at charity events, work, church, the gym, the club and online.

If you want to date right now, online is the way to go. There’s nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about– everyone is doing it!

How to be Vulnerable

To me, what she’s asking is pretty simple– how can I be vulnerable and still protect myself?

This is such a good question, it’s something I think about (and work on) all the time.

I understand that it may be tempting to use vulnerability to connect with people online. You can absolutely be vulnerable, but don’t have to “spill all your tea” if you don’t want to.

Here is a rule I follow when it comes to vulnerability in my work.

How to Have a Glow Up: 5 Secrets No One Talks About

I started blogging (anonymously!) in 2008. At the time, I felt insecure, rejected and unsure of myself. I wrote about those feelings and slowly people around the world began to follow me as I did my best figure things out. If you’ve been here since the beginning, thank you for sticking with me this long. If you’re new here, welcome!

Word on the street is that I’ve had a “glow up”.

I don’t know about that, but I do know I have been working on myself. Like, really working on myself.

The process of my “glow up” has been painful, frustrating and sometimes terrifying. I made a decision five years ago to start doing the spiritual work, mental health work and physical work to become the best version of myself that I could.

I’m committed to helping you build self confidence, so today I’m going to share some of my glow up secrets with you.

Fall Boot Guide

It is finally boot season, and I’ve already added a few beauties to my collection.

There are three boot styles I like to keep in rotation: ankle booties, knee high boots and over-the-knee boots.

If you’ve got thick solid legs like I do, you may need a little extra room in the calf area… I’ve got you covered!

My Strapless Bra & Shapewear Guide

I went from a size 28 to 18 and now my tummy rolls and back fat are a bit… um… UNRULY. 

I keep my confidence up with foundation garments…

Some might ask if foundation garments are “body positive”. That’s a decision you have to make for yourself.

Walking into a meeting feeling self conscious about my back fat pulls my focus away from work. If sliding on some Shapewear keeps my mind on building a better future for plus size women, as I build theCURVYcon then it’s a body positive decision for me.

Here is my Guide to Flawless Shapewear & Strapless Bras:

From my Corporate Job to THIS

Five years ago, I had a corporate job… today I’m a model and ambassador for LOFT!

I can’t believe I’m saying “I’m a model” because I never ever saw myself as a model.

I never thought I was good enough (or pretty enough) to be a model.

Instead of dreaming of becoming a model, I dreamed about building my self confidence. As my confidence has grown over the past 10 years, opportunities that I couldn’t have dreamed of (like modeling) are coming my way.

This is very exciting to me because I now know that if it can happen for me, it can happen for anyone… including you.

Don’t quit your daydream, doll!
