The only thing I like to smoke is my eyeshadow. 💋 Here's me serving you a bit of rocknroll courtesy of the sustainably sexy, second-hand retailer of trendy fashion size 10+, @theplusbus . I've spoken in my stories (check my fast fashion story highlight for more details ) about the struggles women over a US size 10 have in shopping thrift, vintage and even sustainably since it's only recently that we've even been recognized, acknowledged and catered to by the fashion world. This shop is a great find for all of plus size fashion lovers. The best part is that you can thrift some great second hand clothes in person (socially distanced of course ) at their store in Highland Park, CA or from the comfort of your own home via their IG Stories! Go ahead and check them out, @theplusbus . 📸: @visualunicorn Styling: @unitedstatesofla #sustainablystylish #sustainabilityissexy #plussizefashion #curvemodels #honormycurves #secondhandstyle #shopfemaleowned #shopthrift #thriftedfashion #thriftedstyle #plussizethriftstore #plussizethrift #sustainableplussize #sustainablychic #thriftstorefind #smokeyeye #curlycurls #curlycutie #goldenconfidence #effyourbeautystandards #smokeyeyeshadow #curvestyle #buysecondhand #mixedbeauty #blackcontentcreators #type3hair #blackgurlmagic

We love to tell this fairytale about peaceful protests to marginalized people and require them to have superhuman resilience and restraint in the midst of inhumane conditions. The reality is, peaceful protests are effective only when you're viewed as a human (especially by the police ). A lot of people like to say property destruction is ineffective when marginalized BIPOC (black/indigenous/people of color ) are protesting. This is a way to delegitimize and divert attention from the protest since they're inconvenienced by it. The very nature of a protest is for a marginalized group to inconvenience the masses and generate awareness for their cause so governments or the powers that be, see them, listen to them and make a change. . . . What many fail to realize is that peaceful protests usually turn violent due to excessive police response, opportunistsic individuals using the protests for cover and agitators wanting anarchy or race riots. There have been numerous occasions of white people violently rioting and looting to get their governments to listen or to instill fear without consequences for centuries. Yet, whenever marginalized or BIPOC protest (usually for basic civil or constitutional rights ) someone inevitably asks, "Why do they have to (fill in the blank )"? . . . This question is tone and action policing. What they really mean is "The protest offends me and I want to control, punish and ignore it". It is a way to "other" the protestors, divert the focus from the message so that they're absolved from taking any action. Asking this question actively reinforces the false narrative that BIPOC are not deserving to be listened to and that it's only okay for the people in power, (in the western world, people of white European descent ) to be allowed to protest in this manner. Is that really who you want to be? If not, listen to protestors and what they are fighting for, search for books, blogs & research papers written by BIPOC on the history of European colonisation and systemic racism. Uncomfortable conversations with friends and family are necessary to root out biases so you can be not racist, but actively #ANTIRACIST . -written by @kaneema_ ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻

Cheers to my first public speaking engagement as a panelist on the @underfashionclub 's sustainability discussion! A big thank you to @hurraykimmay for inviting me and being the most delightful moderator/host, and @brendnalexander for styling me, @brandonligons for make-up and @r_v_rhair for making my hair Pantene pro-V commercial ready 😂🙌🏽 I firmly believe that as designers and manufacturers of products, we have a duty to not only create items but to also create a method to "destroy" them responsibly when they've reached their point of obsolescence. The onus should not be on the end-user to figure out how to get rid of or recycle the product anymore; they have far too many other things to worry about in their daily lives! It was absolutely wonderful to be in a room with so many of my like-minded peers to brainstorm and share methods we can use to make everything we develop more sustainable and durable. Intimates and swimwear are especially tricky due to a multitude of factors, but all of the ideas and programs discussed will bring us a lot closer to the goal of a closed-loop/circular manufacturing/retailing system.

"It's a mood, it's a vibe, it's a look, it’s a match". 😉💁🏽‍♀️ If you have curly hair, how often and how do you straighten it? How do you protect your curls from heat damage? Comment 👇🏽 with tips and tricks please! 🙏🏽 . . . I haven't straightened my hair in 3 or 4 months (because it takes almost 2 hours ) and now you can find me doing extra dramatic hair flips everywhere this week!😂 Kinda nervous to see how the curls snap back though. Time will tell but definitely going to do it more often. Loving the switch up and feeling like a chameleon. . . . #getyouagirlwhocandoboth #devacurl #drybar #longhairdontcare #selfie #curlyhair #straighthair

Summer is coming and this Caribbean gal is ready!!! 👙: from @asos by @peekandbeau "Peek & Beau Fuller Bust Stripe Bikini" product code: 1225341. They're the sister brand to @playfulpromises ! Best part about this bikini? It has cups y'all! You can play beach volleyball and run around without worry! 🙆🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be honest, I had been feeling some type of way about posting this photo because I was a bit bloated that day. Then my girl @slightlyoffensiverosapalacios reminded me who I was! 😂💪🏽❤😘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My weight can fluctuate anywhere from 5-10lbs depending on the time of the month. It's taken some time for me to accept it. I tend to become too hyper-focused on #s and stats etc., so for this reason, I maybe weigh myself once a week and skip it at that bloat time. It's too easy to become obsessed with the numbers on your scale, especially when you're focused on fitness and eating healthily. I keep telling myself everyday is a new day, stay focused on your plan, move your body and keep it pushing because our bodies can be oh so fickle. Just remember there are far more important things to spend your time on than worrying about some extra water weight. 🤷🏽😊 #Factsoflife #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopo #ilovemybody #plussize #plus #plussizemodel #curvemodel #curves #curvy #lingerie #confidence #goldenconfidence #plusisequal #nowrongway #ootd #curvygirl #andigetdressed #celebratemysize #asos #plusmodelmag #asseenonme #happyfroday

Fun fact: While I love making lingerie, I've never actually taken pictures of myself in #lingerie . So here's a picture of me from my FIRST ever lingerie test shoot with the amazing #boudoir #photographer @evielynnphoto and talented make-up artist @alondraexcene_mua . Thank you two so much for creating such a warm and friendly environment!🖤🖤🖤 . . @honeybirdette is a female owned lingerie brand from Australia and one of my favs for lace design 😍. I randomly walked into their store in Covent Garden last year and fell in love with this #Issy set on sight! The quality is amazing, the lace is handmade and so sheer it gives the illusion of it being a tattoo. It's super strong too and capable of holding up to a size 38G! Definitely check them out online and treat yo'self this Monday! 🖤🖤🖤 #womensupportingwomen #curvemodel #honeybirdette #pslingerie #Omodelsagency #Omodels #lingeriemodel #happymonday #lingerieoftheday #celebratemysize #goldenconfidence #TechincallyImWearingmMoreClothesThanASwimsuit #mixedgirl #PostedAsAReminderForOldAgeMe #vscouted
