For the past few months I have been seeing the fruits of all my inner labor. The praying and believing inspired me to take the actions that changed my life. No more young, wild living. Taking care of myself is now a top priority.
The inside is good, now I'm focusing on the outside. First thing's first, I have to get my body and fashion together. I blogged about fashion for the first time in my last post. Expect more, too. :)
As far as my body goes I started working out using a high interval intensity workout called Turbo Fire. Ever heard of Insanity? Well, Turbo Fire is the same workout only put to music and catered to women. I love it! My body has started to change shape and I'm slimming down nicely after only a couple of months. I'm feeling myself so much that I posted the above pic on Instagram showing off my progress with the caption "Fat & fabulous is the mission..." Meaning, I don't wanna be skinny just in love with the skin I'm in.
I was even inspired to go strapless last week. Can't even remember the last time I did that! Not to mention that this denim one-piece is a size Large when I was buying 2X and 3X. What a freakin' difference!
So to all of you ladies that are fighting the battle of the bulge I encourage you to keep on pushing. It is possible to reach whatever goals you set. It's simple to do, but it's not easy so it will take some motivation and strength but you can do it.
If you have any tips on how I can become a slimmer, sexier me or want to share your weightloss journey hit up the comment section below.

Now that I have steady income again I have been shopping and rebuilding my wardrobe. I look at tons of fashion blogs and follow some amazing plus size divas on Instagram (FOLLOW ME ON IG!) so I can keep up with what's hot.
I was scrolling through Baller Alert and saw the sneak peak they posted of the Fall 2013 shoe collection by Giuseppe Zanotti. I have no idea when I'll actually purchase a pair of Giuseppe's but I know I will on day. *Fingers crossed* So, I'm doing a little browsing in the mean time. The top pair are my favorites. Which one is yours?
|I could definitely see myself wearing these with a cute outfit for Fourth of July.|

The folks over at Bossip didn't have anything nice to say about Jasmine D. Thomas. She's the author of the urban fiction romance When A Diva's Fed Up and girlfriend to rapper, Meek Mill.
Jasmine made her rounds on the gossip blogs after she tweeted pics of a Bentley that Meek bought her. She had the car on the lawn of what looked like the projects and was just being real extra in some of the pics. Note: These pics are from March. I have no idea what the deal is between Jasmine and Meek but I'm gonna assume they're still together. Here are a few pics. For more check out the SOURCE. Do you think she was way too ghetto? Or is she just the proud owner of a new Bentley?
