S/O to Target

So one of my favorite spots for all things cute and inexpensive just struck gold with me yet again. Target recently debuted their newest ad for swim apparel and I'm totally impressed. The superstore giant used real women...with real stomachs, real thighs and real breast!  I had to give Target kudos but the real standing ovation goes to the ladies who were BIG, BOLD and BEAUTIFUL enough to debut their assets to the world. Some assets that society would consider not preferred but what I considered the beautiful truth. See in my mind, that which is real and normal is always preferred. I hope to see more ads like this in the future. Ads that encourage young and seasoned women to appreciate and love their bodies.  So shout out to Target and all the ladies in this ad but especially Chante our BBW or as I like to say our BBB representative!!!  You ladies ROCK!!!

Freaking Fringing

There's no shame in my game.  I'm a "girly-girl."  That's right, I'll admit it...I'm a bOnafIde girly-girl."  I've known this since I was knee high to a grass hopper.  I was that six-year-old that wanted to wear ruffle sox with everything.  I had to have a ribbon in my hair and I planned for picture day in July.  Yes...I said July and yes I know it's two months before school even starts.  Don't judge me!  LOL :)

Well know that I'm six-plus-twenty-four-years-old I've traded in my ruffles for fringe.  I'm kind of obsessed.  I'm fringing in shirts, shorts, shoes and now swimwear.  I'm seriously addicted and Monif C is feeding my habit.  Their swimsuit line is always fierce but this year, the addition of not one, not two but three fringe pieces has sent me on a serious shopping spree.  So don't be surprised if you see me at the beach FREAKING FRINGING all over the dang place because that's definitely my plan.  Checkout these fabulous pieces and BBB girls...head on over to so you can FREAKING FRINGE like me.

Queen of Spinach

I recently completed a one-week raw food challenge! I know right...yay for me!  I call it a challenge because that's exactly what it was.  CHALLENGING!  See, I'm a burger kind of girl. I don't often indulge in red meat but when my brain knows that I can't have it that's when I want it even more.
So for "nature week" I had dreams or in this case nightmares that involved burgers, ribs, barbecue chicken and buffets. Yes, I said it...buffets!!!! I don't even like buffets but when you're confined to eating nothing that has seen a stove, toaster, microwave or oven trust me you'll dream about buffets too.

Despite my nightmares and love triangle with a piece of steak and a mango, I'm feeling quite accomplished.  Entering into this challenge I thought, BBB you'll never make it...halfway through the week you'll give up, what's the point it's just a cleanser!!!! Well I proved my own self wrong! I did not give up and I learned a lot about myself (mainly my creative side) along the way. I never knew I could do so much with a bag of spinach :) smoothies, salads, wraps and more. And I never realized how great a simple cleanser could make me feel!

Well needless to say I'm feeling AMAZING and undefeated. Oh, and by the way, my celebratory burger was the TRUTH!!!
