About that Colour...

So, about that colour I was talking about in the last post. I really am trying to fill my life with colour and  inspiration lately! Fortunately, I got these beautiful jeans at the BIG DEAL TORONTO event put on by my blogger big sister, Karen Ward (Curvy Canadian)! These jeans are actually from another fellow blogger of mine, Carlie! Some of you may know her from her amazing blog, Friends In My Closet. Actually, I believe these jeans are originally from Old Navy! Perfect lead up to the new OLD NAVY PLUS SIZE LINE! Big Deal Toronto is an annual event where plus size bloggers like myself get to sell pieces from their closet! This year had a HUGE turn out! Fortunately, I got to meet so many of you and managed to snag these pants at the same time!

This cute aztec print peplum top was $12 from WALMART! Yup. I know. I was just doing some grocery shopping a while back and happened to notice this top while picking up my last pieces. I couldn't leave it behind. Twelve bucks? Like, really? 
It HAD to come home with me!

"Life is about moving on."-Unknown

Rough week for me. So, I won't be saying much. You guys know I love you, and truly this is one of the only things that keep me grounded and takes my mind off of things. About two weeks ago, I took a trip to Buffalo with a good friend of mine. I always make it a point to go into Forever 21 whenever I cross the border, just in case they have something that our Canadian stores don't. Like always...I find things that are only available to only my American friends! Pfff! lol! This top spoke to me immediately. With the pleather sleeves and the bold graphics...I knew it had to go home with me. In my head, I already knew it was going to be paired up with my black pleather-tasseled jeans that I got from Forever 21 PLUS about a year or two ago. 

I seem to be addicted to the black look lately. Although I love it, hopefully I can bring some colour back into my life. In more ways than one. I'm definitely in a learning stage right now. And although it's extremely hard, I'm learning to accept inalienable truths, cherish and concentrate on only the people who truly love me, and move on with my life. Life does indeed go on. Dedicating this one to my big sister, Chauntelle. 
Thank you.

CARIBANA 2013: Toronto Caribbean Carnival

"NOBODY can make you feel inferior without your consent."

It's been years that Garcia and I have been wanting to participate in our very well known Carnival here in Toronto. I've been here my whole life, so I've grown up watching the festivities and parade every summer hoping that one day, I'd get the courage to put on one of those amazing costumes and JUMP UP to celebrate my culture! Finally this year, we came to the agreement that our bodies deserved to be celebrated just as much as the next chick's! So fortunately, we played mas in this years Caribana Parade for Tribal Knights. Ladies, we did this with our well being in mind. But mostly, we did it for every full figured girl who's backed out or stayed on the side lines because they felt their body wasn't up to carnival standards. Well guess what my love, this is one time of year where NONE of that matters. Let it go, get your arms outstretched and DANCE like no one is watching!

I would encourage any girl with the itch to do this...TO DO IT! We had so much fun and I cannot believe I waited this long to be a part of something so amazing and so culture based. I am so in love with culture and community. And oddly enough, this is the most attractive I have ever felt! Can you imagine?! With no clothes on, hiding nothing...I felt the best I've ever felt. I'm telling you, its WORTH IT! I couldn't have chosen a better time to be involved. Hope you guys like it! Tell me what you think!


Beautiful Toronto. I love you.
