MAKING IT LOOK EASY!



I was friends with Marvelous sisters far before I even knew who she was I can remember surfing face book and coming across her page and I instantly requested her. Along the years I have noticed her post and of course pics and felt really inspired. Some people think that being plus size stops at size 18/20 well ladies it doesn't. When I first approached Marvelous About interviewing her and asked her size she confidentially stated a 30/32. Upon first posting the news of this interview a reader stated "I"m concerned for her health". After speaking with Marvelous I am not concerned at all. she is a woman who knows what she wants who she is and what to do about it.


AFB: where does your confidence come from?
Marvelous: My confidence comes from my self esteem and my upbringing, nobody born confident. It's something instilled in from a little girl. I believe self-confidence is the difference between being scared and being passionate; it’s how we feel about ourselves and what we can accomplish.

AFB: have you considered weight loss?Marvelous:NEVER When I was younger  but now that I'm older yes!! I'm starting to cut back and cut out alot of my favorite fatty foods, I'm a junk food fanatic I need help!!

AFB: has you weight ever bothered you or made you stronger?stronger because some people can be so judgmental when it comes to plus sized people. Don't view me as being lazy or depressed that's not the case on my behalf.



AFB: What does Fashion  mean to you?Marvelous: It means everything to me 'cause fashion helps you express "yourself"  therefore it should always be based on what you find interesting and no one else!!! Its a expression of my inner self and not a reflection of every one's expectation of what should be expressed!! Fashion is something to be enjoyed! Think of it as a form of art you should have fun with it. If you don't enjoy it, it's not worth it.  Fashion is about happiness and experimentation,  feeling good about how you look, and putting together new outfits.
AFB: What are some of your favorite trends that are happening right now? strips, leopard print,maxi dresses,leggings,scarves,hats,flats and color blocking.

AFB: What are your 3 favorite hot spots to hit and find fab pieces?
Marshall's, torrid, avenue, and lane bryant

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So as we all know TAURUS rock! I really didn't feel like a birthday girl at first I mean isn't  your birthday suppose to be about you.  In my case I somewhat felt as if it wasn't with limited friends my bday wasn't looking to good and I honestly didn't expect much. Being single on your bday is no joke. I don't know why I don't have an abundance of close and personal friends. I guess you can say my willingness to trust and let people are far in between. My mother raised all of her children with the notion of "YOU DON'T NEED FRIENDS I'M YOUR FRIEND". That notion has lasted over the years and I love the friendship we have. I decided to go out and enjoy myself  after I was the birthday girl!

I wanted to go for a simple yet flashy look and we all know I love to sparkle. I found this skirt at forever 21 and it was the only one there boy was i happy. The shoes are Jessica Simpson which were on sale and I had been watching them for the past two months. It's an awesome feeling when you see something that you wanted and it's on Sale! My vanilla button up was thrifted from goodwill for $6 and it's actually Lauren by Ralph Lauren.


I haven't used my DSLR camera in seems like forever my IPhone is so quick snap and go!

DAY 2

Now My sister LUCY decided to gift me the ultimate dress......ever since I saw gabi of gabifresh.com wear this dress I was in love. I don't know if it was the print but I was in love. Now Lucy never misses anything so when she called and stated she had purchased the dress for me. I could have died a million times I swear she's a angel. I decided to pair the busy dress with Neon Slingback heels from Guess $68 my earrings were purchased at a local hair store for $10






  I dined at Barton G and boy ol boy did I have a blast Not only was the ambiance great but so was the food and all it's little tricks. When first sitting down instead of a normal menu Barton G sits a Ipad in front of you to place your order. I decided on the surf and turf and was in for a huge surprise upon it's arrival. All in all the experience was wonderful. My damage was about $250 but it was well worth it.
yes that is the presentation and yes it's that big! I love them for their presentation.

After Dinner I went home and enjoyed the much anticipated independent film Pariah boy ol boy was that a good movie. Mrs.Kim Waynas did her thing!
