Darkness falls over our minds sometimes leading us into depression when it comes to body image and self esteem. I can remember times looking into the mirror scrutinizing my body over and over. It was pretty much a cycle that I could not escape.
If earlier this week you saw a young lady dancing downtown in the rain, that was me! Thanks for all of the waves, horn honks, and smiles that were kindly given while I was being carefree and enjoying my photo shoot in downtown Tupelo.
I boomeranged a couple of cute dances in my IG stories and was sent plenty of DMs about the Plus Size African Print Dress that I was wearing. I’m here today to spill all the details and give you the information on where to find this amazing dress.
If you’re wondering why are the room keys pictured above here is the reason, Day 1 and over 30,000 steps on my Fitbit, you would have thought these keys opened the pearly gates of Heaven. The room keys were all I needed after Day 1 at Zumba Convention.
Day 2 included Hip-Hop Turn Up and the African Workout. It was my first time taking both of these sessions, but being that I love Hip-Hop and African everything. I knew I was going to be crunk at both of these sessions.
As many of you know I love to dance and I am a big fan of Zumba. In fact, I am a certified Zumba Instructor currently teaching twice a week. I have been teaching Zumba for 5 years and I absolutely love it. So last week, I was enjoying palm trees, humid weather, and in the crowd of over 10,000 instructors in Orlando, Florida for Zumba Convention.
Audrea Self, WCBI News Anchor, and emcee of the luncheon graced the stage with one question. She said, Who run the world? And the audience screamed enthusiastically, GIRLS! There was no better way to kick off the very first Mud & Magnolia Influential Women luncheon. The room was full of GIRL BOSSES in Northeast Mississippi. (more…)

I have been natural for seven years and when I started this journey I was so excited. I was a major product junkie and I spent several hours watching YT videos on how to achieve the perfect twist out. I big chopped in 2010 around the same time I started my fitness journey and washing my hair was a breeze when it was approximately 2 inches long. (more…)
Would you believe me if I told you that many women are having reconstruction surgery and then making money selling skinny teas, waist trainers, sweat belts, and so much more? If you are skeptical just take a glimpse at the picture below and read the caption. Rob Kardashian (Kim Kardashian’s baby brother) admitted to funding his girlfriends (Black Chyna) 100K surgery after giving birth to their baby girl. Nothing is really wrong with that except the fact that she pretending that all of the detox teas, sweat belts, and all the other products that she promotes is the reason she snapped back to her pre-baby weight so fast.
