It’s Summer, I’m Fat, and I’m Wearing a Crop Top

My body is such a small portion of who I actually am, however it is the very thing people use to judge my entire life. People look at my body and assume how much I work out, how much I care about myself, and determine my overall worth. If I was a person who lived by the standards of others, I would be dead. I decided a long time ago that it’s how I feel about me that…

Kelly’s Kloset: Plus Sized and Sexy!

Kelly’s Kloset has so graciously chosen me to do a review on their beautiful lingerie line for plus size women. I was elated when I received the email to showcase to my followers more positive body imagery. Plus size women are often deemed to be unsexy, lonely, and sad. Which just isn’t true. Plus size women are confident and we aren’t shedding any tears in regards to our bodies. I think these sultry items Kelly’s Kloset offers is…

#YTCreatorDay Washington, DC

#YTCreatorDay was amazing! I drove into Virginia to my hotel and arrived about 3:30am prior to the event. I Slept for exactly 2 hours and then proceeded to get ready to drive into Washington DC.

I was nervous because I didn’t know who I would…

💋 About Mom…

I know today is all about spoiling mom and the admiration of her sacrifices. However, for me Mother’s day is everyday. Everything I write today is how I feel all year long. It’s funny how you grow up and say “I am going to be an individual.” Yet you catch yourself reacting or even talking just like your mother would. In those moments you realize the obvious influence.

Toast: To a Noir Year 🍾🍾🍾🍾

I Am Noir TV is approaching a year in existence and I have learned so much over this time. As a leader, I think this experience has made me more aware. It’s allowed me to see how far I will push myself to have the things I dream of. These trials and triumphs have turned a heart once open and closed at times. This has been an emotional, fun, crazy, mad, confused, and educational time. First, I want…

Jersey on Drake VIEWS

Drake’s Views is a twenty track ride through his hometown of Toronto. Although Views went Gold overnight I wasn’t so sure at the first listen that I would have the same excitement I did from his past work. As a fan, you have expectations of what you want from a specific artist. I guess I was looking for Thank Me Later/Take Care but it is clear that Aubrey Graham has moved on. The OVO frontman didn’t hold anything…
