Happy September Babes! Although it's technically still Summer, September marks the beginning of my Fall fashion transition. My Fall wardrobe includes layers, warms colors, boots, and lots of denim. To be honest, I wear denim all year round (#dontjudgeme). As much as I love denim and have owned almost every garment that's available in denim, I've never owned a denim dress.  How? 

Denim dresses are so versatile and can seriously be worn during any season if you choose the right silhouette. But my absolute favorite thing about them...you don't need to do a lot of styling! As I'm growing in my style journey, I've realized I don't like to do a styling and overaccessorizing so adding a denim dress was essential when building my Fall wardrobe. You can style your denim dress with a  T-shirt underneath, roll your sleeves up, dress it up with pumps or keep it casual with sneakers. The possibilities are endless! 

Denim dresses are an essential staple piece to add to your wardrobe,  shop my favorite denim dress styles below:

Confident, Sexy, & Curvy

Sexy Confident Plus Size Women
A quick google search of the two words, sexy women, is a quick reminder that plus size curvy women still aren't viewed as sexy by the masses. I scrolled the top 4 pages of google's results of sexy women and not a plus size (or black) woman in sight. So here we are in 2018 and I want to remind Google, society, and you reading this that plus size women are sexy, too. 

What is a sexy woman? My short answer: a woman who exudes confidence. It's not the clothes (although they help), body type, or facial features. Sexiness is feeling/mood that is born from within. Don't get me wrong outside forces play a part in how sexy a woman feels because let's keep it 100%, there's no better feeling than you man or partner loving & kissing on your curves ;). But, with or without their validation we should feel confident & sexy as plus size women.

A vast majority of plus size women aren't confident, and therefore we've begun to believe that we aren't sexy. Well, I'm here to show you that we are sexy, confident and deserving of our curves to be celebrated. Ready?

5 Ways Queen of The South has Inspired Me to BOSS UP

This post is sponsored by USA Network but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
Have you ever had been told to put your "big girl panties on and boss up"? I have plenty of times. Majority of the time I'm having the conversation with myself. I allow fear and self-doubt talk me out of my greatness. But, when our goals are bigger than our fears; nothing can hold us back...not even ourselves. Bossing up is apart of the journey to greatness.

Being told to "Boss Up", simply means it's time to take full control and responsibility of your life and circumstances to achieve greater success. No matter where you are on your life journey you can boss up and start living your best queen life.

Recently, I've started *binge* watching the show "Queen of the South" it focuses on Teresa Mendoza's journey to becoming the biggest queenpin. Teresa's ability to preserve through any obstacle shes faced with is inspiring. There are moments in the show when I couldn't believe she still had the courage to keep fighting. Watching "Queen of the South" has inspired me to "Boss Up" and go harder.

I've put together a list of the 5 ways watching "Queen of the South" has inspired me to boss up like Teresa below:

4 Ways to Bond with Stepchildren ft. UniverSoul Circus

 Hey Babes!

When I started dating my fiance in 2016, the one thing I was nervous about was meeting his son and niece. He always spoke highly of them both and reminded me constantly that the two of them are a package deal...if you see one the other isn't far behind. To be honest, this was my first time dating someone with children and my only reference to the stepchild/ step-parent life was horrendous stories I read online and the Lifetime movies (don't judge me lol).

After meeting two of them I realized the step-parent life isn't as horrible as the internet and Cinderella makes it seem. Grant it, step-parenting and blending families is tricky because the rules, roles, and expectations of everyone (adults included) are changing.

Bonding as a blended family is very important. Even if you have reservations about spending time with your stepchildren, you should swallow your fears and do it. It's the only way you two can truly get to know each other and become comfortable together. When I found out the UniverSoul Circus I knew it would be the perfect event to spend quality time with my bonus son and bonus niece.

I've put together a list of 4 ways you can bond with your stepchildren. Hopefully, these tips will help you navigate through your step-parenting is a journey.
