Hey Delights!

update: The answer to this giveaway was mentioned here.

As mentioned here & during my Instagram stories visit to the Universal Standard pop-up shop at Nordstrom, I have partnered with Universal Standard to host this awesome giveaway.  I also spent some time chatting with the brands co-founder Alex Waldman. We talked about everything from why they created the brand to what new things we will see from the brand and lots more in between. Stay tuned for more of that conversation on the next CurvaCast.

At the pop-up I tried on some of the pieces that I mentioned here, like the twist cut out faux leather top and this gorgeous tie front dress, a piece that is amazing on every single body that I have seen it on.


A couple of things that I really love about Universal Standard:

{What I Wore} Peplum Caped Pea Coat + Sparkle

Hey Delights!

I am going to see my all time favorite artist, Janet Jackson tonight and I am so excited. Janet has always held a very special place in my heart. Growing up, her role as Penny on Good Times was the only "ME" that I saw on television and I have loved her since.  The last time that I saw her in concert was in 2011 so needless to say, I am stoked to get to see her doing her thing once again.

The look that I rocked yesterday was somewhat of a homage to the whole Rhythm Nation vibe. I have already shared in the video here how I feel about this peplum cape jacket . It is just 💙.

I am not one of those people who think that sequins are only for "special occasions". The way I look at it, every day that I am alive is a special occasion, so I wear my sequin jeans (seen here) like I do any other pair of pants. I am thinking about adding these blue sequin pull ons to my arsenal and I also featured a couple of other cute options on my liketoknow.it page.

These boots are an old favorite from Fergalicious that I have pulled out every year since I purchased them. They are biker chic cool, great with jeans and the heel height makes them just perfect for every day.

I am so EXCITED for tonight and I will of course be sharing some of tonight's concert on my social media pages, so you know what to do! 👇

Hey Delights!

Universal Standard has partnered with Nordstrom to bring their unique fashion aesthetic to the masses via pop-up shops and a model search that is arriving here in Chicago this week, Oct 26-29. The pop-up shop will be at Nordstrom on Michigan Avenue and you can get the details of the model search that is taking place on Sunday, Oct 29th here. They are on a 12 city tour and Chicago is the 9th stop, so check them out to see if they are coming to your town.

I love the minimalist, cool style of the brand. The pieces are like these cool canvases that you can really amp up or just rock solo and I can't wait to get a few of them on my body. Here are some current faves that can be found at Nordstrom.




I will be chatting with the co-founder of Universal Standard, Alexandra Waldman and sharing looks from the pop-up TODAY, Thursday, Oct 26 via my Instagram stories. So make sure that you check it out because I will also be hosting a $200 gift card giveaway starting tomorrow, and you will only know the answers to the giveaway question required to enter to win if you watch 😤.

{Events} Glow Maven Latham Thomas | Own Your Glow

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. By doing so, you help to keep this blog going & I appreciate & thank you for it. Shout out to Latham & Bodhi Spiritual Center for the invite.

Hey Delights!


Event recap: I had such a lovely time at this event. Latham and Lola filled the room with laughs, wisdom and inspiration. I recorded it so that I could go back and listen to it when I needed a little spiritual mojo. Latham and I had a conversation about a tense moment (hence the reaction on her face) that she mentioned the night before at the Together Live event. Essentially it was a moment where she stood up for someone who really couldn't do it for themselves. It was a reminder that we all should be paying attention and standing up for each other.

She wrote in my book that she sees so much grace in me and I hope that I can truly live exemplifying that.

I previously featured Latham Thomas aka Glow Maven way back in 2015 when I was my first introduced to her via a collaboration I did with Nissan for their Haute Havens series. 

She just recently released her book Own Your Glow, which I pre-ordered. I spent a little me time one morning on my balcony aka my reading nook with a cuppa, one of those delicious vegan scones Joe made for Curvy Girls Tea, getting my life from the book.
Own Your Glow is in Latham's words:

Hey Delights!

Weeks back Hayet asked me to join her Nike Plus Squad, a crew of bad ass babes modeling some of the latest Nike Plus Size pieces at the Nike Store on The Mag Mile here in Chicago. The event was the first time EVER that Nike had a plus size event in store and we had a blast.

{In The Magazines} My First Print Magazine Feature

Hey Delights!

I am over the moon to be featured in the latest issue of one of my favorite magazines, Mantra Yoga & Health which drops TODAY!

Mantra & it's sister magazines, Origin & Thrive have become staples in our home. They are some of the most beautifully designed magazines that I have ever read.  They are always full of the creative & talented people, amazing photography, delicious recipes, lots of beauty and wellness brands, some of which will soon be showing up here on le blog.
Obviously being featured in any magazine is always a fabulous thing.  But for me, being featured in this particular magazine as my first magazine feature is extra special. Mantra represents and celebrates so many of the things that are important for me, conscious living, embracing your life fully, challenging yourself to do better, be better, explore more, step outside of the box.
