Modern Day Native American
I thought today I would take on a fun way to show a Modern Day Thanksgiving. I found a way to show Pilgrims and Native Americans! Let’s remember the first thanksgiving and those who came before us! Let’s celebrate Thanksgiving fashionably! There are so many great options for you to wear to your Thanksgiving dinner. ! Happy Tuesday
Hi guys! Since it’s the week of #THANKSGIVING. I wanted to share some things with you i have been working on in school this term. Many of you know my passion is social media marketing. I hope to do that as soon as i am done with school. I wanted to share a close organization to my heart. I have been serving with Joppa OutReach this last few weeks. I had previously visited Joppa last year. Joppa is a homeless outreach in Des Moines Iowa. All my adult life, I’ve wanted to work with a non-profit that fit my heart. I certainly found it within Joppa. I am currently working with Joppa to provide social media outreach. I also volunteer on Sundays doing routes within the organization You may ask what is Joppa or what does Joppa do?
- Express Christ’s unconditional love
- Build relationships – become like family
- Help people stay warm, dry and healthy
- Provide food, humanitarian aid & care
- Respond to needs & emergencies
- Be a voice, advocate & link to resources
- Encourage positive steps forward
- Provide aftercare once off the streetts
I have been really thinking about this year what i am most thankful for? Everyday this November Ive been telling my self 1-2 i am thankful for daily. I have grown so much love for the people I am currently serving with in Joppa. My heart is so filled this weekend. How are you giving back this weekend? What are you most thankful for? How are you serving someone else this thanksgiving? I hope that you take away some good thoughts on Monday with this!
Have a fabulous week!

The one thing about fall, that it seems I am more comfortable in clothing. I found these amazing track pants from old navy. The sporty chic is an amazing trend. I decided to dress it up with a statement jacket and some heels. I was super comfortable. The great thing is that the pants fit any type of body. They work if you are plus or not. I just made it a subtle black and white look. Happy Thursday.

Lately I have been really obsessed with leather. When I was in junior high, leather pants were the coolest thing. I remember I could never find anything that fit me, however in the last few years the plus size movement in terms of fashion has really grown, there are more options than ever. I have a picked a few of my favorite leather trends, I hope you enjoy.

Hi! Happy Monday! This week is gonna be busy! I start my full time school this week! This past week i received an interesting question via a reader. The question was proposed, if i have such a problem with my body type, why do i blog? Am i subjecting myself towards a even more critical world. To answer that question, my blog is the only place i can dress how i want to dress. I don’t really get to wear all the stuff i want during the week. This is my creativity and play space. With that, i really stepped up the to challenge of adding crazy prints with neon. Its the last of sweet summer (believe me when i shot this it was 90 degrees)! I hope you have a wonderful begging to your week.
