Hiiiiii babyloves! I hope all is well with all of you. I just got back into town and wanted to share some pics from my adventures this past month!
Before heading out to Atlantic City for my mini vacay I stopped in to give my friend Roble hugs and love for his birthday (so fun!). I rocked my Monif C. convertible dress aka my new favorite thing in my closet. I feel like when Monif went to design that dress she had me (and my booty) in mind! lol LOVED it :)
Me and the homie! Model William Kortney
Happy birthday Roble!
To AC we go! I got to see Beyonce live at the GORGEOUS new Revel Resort grand opening in Atlantic City (special hugs to my sweet friends Asa and Robert). I had front row seats to see Bey (I know..cray) and, let me tell you, the energy was NUTS! Luke James, who was the opening act, sounded smooth like butter too ;)
Everyone and their mama came out to see her but I tell you my heart stopped for about 2 seconds when Michelle Obama walked in with her girls. The only person that could take my attention away from Beyonce was our FLOTUS and it was so fun to watch them dance and sing every song. They had a blast! The whole show was amazing, aesthetically very pleasing and Beyonce worked her butt off. The voice? Incredible. I paid attention to every detail: the dancers, the choreography, the lighting, the production, etc...and I loved it. Kudos to Bey and her team!! Check out the photos I took:
Me and one of Beyonce's dancers (Larry, one half of Les Twins)
see! twins! double the fun!
He was amazing and delicious.
(who bends like that in real life?)
I also finally got the chance to rock my new pin-up style ModCloth bikini poolside at Revel ;) I loved the way it fit my booty and, well, who doesn't love cherries?? ;) And since we are on the topic of bikini's I wanted take the time to urge you plus gals to rock whatever it is you desire to rock at the pool/beach this summer. No coverups! We only get one life to live so don't waste your time worrying about what anyone else has to say. Do what makes you happy honey! I absolutely wanted to share this awesome post by my good friend Gabi Fresh: Fatkini 2012. I love her for showing off what her mama gave her and giving women the confidence to wear bikini's this summer and in style! Please follow her blog. She offers amazing fashion tips and, well, she's hot.
After AC I jetted off to LA and did a shoot with the ever so lovely Inez Lewis. Fellow plus model Danielle Line joined me on set and my girl Reah Norman was there to help with her styling expertise! (Go team PLUS!)
I also got to see my baby brother graduate high school which was the highlight of my trip. And no big deal but my brother absolutely did the dougie right after he accepted his diploma on stage. That's my baby! lol
I also wanted to share a couple more pics I took behind the scenes at my Kontrol Magazine shoot (which comes out in August). Check out the shoessss honey! Special shout-out to Cynthia and Chris for their help!

Hey hey hey loves. Just wanted to share my interview and feature with UK based SLINK Magazine. They are such a fun group and I was honored they chose to interview me.

Special squishy hugs to writer and designer Jeffrey Michael who interviewed me and gave me lots of smiles and laughs and thanks to my girl Gabi Gregg :) Please read my interview here on pages 82-85.

Hey yummies! Check out this fun feature that retailer Jessica London did on me today for their site!

Baby boos!! Heyyyy! The new issue of PLUS Model Magazine is live and it's yummmmy! (I know, I say yummy a lot but its true dangit!) Check out all the luxe fashion and a round up of all the amazing October events in the community, including my runway show with Lane Bryant! Also, you can check out my interview with Spotlight Model Lily Cummings :) Love ya!!!
One of my favorite things about being a fit model is being apart of the process of creating more fashionable options for the plus-size woman. I was fortunate enough to model for The Limited's new plus-size line called Eloquii this past year. Seeing it all come to life has been so exciting and such a blessing! I hope you enjoy the new line and I'm so grateful to The Limited for going out on a limb and listening to the plus-size consumer. It's a win-win situation! Thanks to Eloquii for inviting me to their beautiful launch party this week with host and my girl Gabi Fresh!

Months ago I got a call from my good friend and photographer Jerris Madison with the news that shook me for days. He told me he wanted me on the cover of his magazine, Obvious, for their special "Model Issue". This issue will include my editorial and interview and it's especially exciting for me because its their first print issue. It's 6 covers total for this issue and its "flip" style (3 versions). I am so blessed and honored to share my flip cover with Actor Brian White and his amazing wife Paula. The other covers include 3 fresh faces, model Cavier Coleman and actor Darryl Stephens. This took weeks to prepare and many, many hands to put together. The team behind this shoot were amongst some of the most talented and professional I have ever seen since stepping into this industry a few years ago. People keep asking me, "how does it feel?" and honestly...I still have yet to feel anything beyond humbled and overwhelmed. I recognize I am blessed and lucky to be chosen. I am especially lucky to have a friend like Jerris who really saw something in me and decided to take a chance. The support and love from my family and peers have touched me deeply and I promise that I will continue to do my best to represent well. This is more than just a pretty picture to me. It's an expression of growth and change in this industry and possibly some inspiration for the young girls in the corner that need to hear and see positivity everyday. Really...this one's for you.
I can't wait for you to see the full editorial and interview when it comes out in print May 10th!
