Body Noire 2: A Celebration of Black Female Bodies

"Society tends to promote slimmer size women and leave behind plus size women, this became too frequent in magazines and in many commercials so I decided to find a way to promote self love, self awareness, and self confidence for women who are plus size like myself through my hashtag #purebodylove." -Jezra M.

Catherines goes to GA!!

Savannah Savannah Savannah !!!! What a beautiful place.

A few weeks ago, I got the chance to meet up with Catherine’s in Savannah, Georgia!!! And I must say I had an amazing time. I got the chance to enjoy some days of fun in the sun with, Catherine’s, Jessica Torres and Jennifer Buckingham. It was my first time in Savannah and I couldn't wait to see what Savannah had to offer. As soon as we got to the house we got ready and went out for lunch. I wore this beautiful black sequins dress along with a pair of comfortable black sandals which i also from Catherine's.

 

My entire stay in Savannah, GA was amazing everyday we did something exciting. Our first night we learned how to cook a delicious southern full course meal plus dessert. It was such a treat!! My favorite part of the whole experience was learning the southern style way of frying chicken and making cold slaw without mayonnaise.

The ladies and I worked so hard to make sure our dinner came out tasty and delicious the way Chef Darin from Chef Darin's Kitchen Table taught us. When it was time to eat we all were happy at a job well done!!  Special thanks to Chef Darin for being an amazing teacher.   

The next day we headed out bright and early for our Savannah Tours Bus. The tour bus was amazing from start to finish, not only was it very informative the site of Savannah is just so beautiful.

My outfit choice was great for the adventure and for the weather. I wore comfortable jeans, a tank top and a suede light material blazer. Comfortable jeans are always a must when walking around and these Catherine's jeans were defiantly comfortable. 

When our tour ended the ladies and I decided to stop in this nice tourist attraction area, to continued our site seeing. We stopped at this cute street market place to snap a picture. 

Last but not least we boarded this astonishingly giant boat named Georgia Queen, she was sure a queen. This day was just right for this boat ride up the river.

How cute is this tie dye dress from Catherine's ? When i saw this dress on the Catherine's website I knew I had to get it. I decided to wear it on our boat adventure, not only was it cute and comfortable it complimented my curves exactly how I like it.

The next morning as we sat in the den we laughed, drank coffee and reminisce about our amazing trip in Savannah in our cute PJ's.

Simply Be Collaboration -Workout edition

Fitness Newbie is a name I gave myself because I’m still a newbie to the whole fitness world. However, I’m super pump, ready and willing to learn all the ends and outs of being healthy, gaining energy and strength. One of the main concerns other than eating right and exercising for me is finding the appropriate clothes to workout in. Being comfortable in your work out gear while workingout is a major deal for me so I was excited when I got the chance to collaborate with Simply Be. While my body is running and walking on the treadmill or on the track I want to feel comfortable and not have to focus or worry about adjusting my clothes. The track suit I got from Simply Be was super soft on the skin and every comfortable, it fit me just the way I like it which is defiantly a plus. The tracksuit felt so comfortable on me that I extended my time on the track for a few hours and didn't feel the need to run and take the suite off like I have had to do many times with other workout clothes. I love the CHILL top its super cute and also comfortable. All workout clothes doesn't have to be black you can always work out in any color. Love their sneakers selection, they offer different types of sneakers with very cute colors to choose from. Its very important to wear comfortable sneakers when working out so I was super to try their sneakers out. Below are few of the looks I received from Simply Be
