Have you ever been in your feelings so bad that you feel trapped? Your job ain’t right. Your blog is slowly dying. Your love life is like walking on broken glass. Your scale moves faster than a Richter because you’ve been up and down on your weight. School feels like the second coming. Yea–that was me. ALL OF THAT WAS ME throughout the entire month of February and most of March. Last week was the first time I took a much-needed break. I didn’t blog, didn’t do school work, and didn’t even go to the gym. I just went to church, and of course, God spoke to me, “YOUS A SAVAGE!”

For the longest time, I’ve been putting my hopes in other people. For two years, I legit placed a huge piece of my happiness in the hands of someone who was going through their own thing—talk about playing with fire. I started going to gym and realize that I was taking my health for granted. It’s like I woke up and didn’t know that I was privileged to not only afford a state of the art gym but that I could attend one with minimal physical restrictions. I was taking advantage of food and family.

But most importantly, I was taking advantage of God breathing life, family, love, and the spirit of savagery into me. With said, I am right back on track. Doing whatever makes me happy and developing habits of being grateful for it. On the outside, many people think I have it together–heck, my momma thinks I’m superwomen. And you know, she’s right! I just had to realize that I placed too much of my energy and time trying to fit in, trying to be the perfect girlfriend, trying to be the best version of me for other people. FUCK THAT SHIT. I can’t think of the last time ANYONE has bent that hard for me.

So in the spirit of savagery and “sorry not sorry”- hood, enjoy the blog and the transitions that I’m making. I’m happy to let y’all in on this journey and please don’t be a stranger.

OH YEA–AND SORRY NOT SORRY!

These Prints won’t Mix Themselves

Today, we are closing in on the installment of Plus Size Beausion Print Mixing series–but don’t worry, I feel like such expert at mixing prints that it’ll be hard NOT TO post moRE daring combinations.


I am rounding out the series using items from my closet. Now, you may remember my post entitled, “That Uptown Sweet Funk“. In that post, I talked about how statement pieces can be re-purposed for different outfits. As a blogger, I have a habit of wearing something, then never wearing it again because it made such a statement the first time I wore it. Shop Sweet Mod’s April Shower’s Skirt  is one of those items that you can keep re-purposing–no matter how much of a statement it makes.

I paired Shop Sweet Mod’s April Showers Skirt with an off the shoulder top from Eloquii.  Although this shirt is sold out, they have an identical crop  that is just as beautiful! But hey, the Spring is nigh, so it’s not too late to take a stab at it!

A piece of me wanted to wear leopard shoes to finish the look, but I had to step back from that because I knew it would look tacky. Instead, I paired this look with my suede turquoise pumps from Amazon. They actually brought out the cerulean hues in the Shop Sweet Mod’s April Showers Skirt .

Accessorizing came pretty easy for me. My Daniel Wellington Classic Black Watch, with the cuff  to match, has become a PSB favorite! Don’t forget, use code BEAUSION15 to get 15% off your first order! And to make this dinner date friendly, my clutch from JD Williams coordinated with the watch so perfectly!

What do you think of the look? What are some ways you would style this skirt?

Plus Size Traveling in Jamaica

The title sounds straight to the point huh? And YES/NO this may or may not be one of those “complainey” posts but oh well.

4 months ago, me and the ladies planned a trip to Jamaica for Anita’s birthday. We were given a list of excursions to choose from and even opted for a couple of spa treatments. We were convinced that we were going be in paradise! Now aside from the fact that all of us were sick, we were physically in paradise. The sun was shining, the water beautiful and the food was divine. No one could take away our initial feelings when we arrived in Jamaica.

Then day two came around and we were scheduling out the excursions. Originally we booked Horseback riding, ATV, Dolphin Swim, Jungle River Tubing and Sunset Tour. When we arrived, the representative took one look at me and said, “By the way, there’s a weight limit for some of these excursions.” Now, I know it’s her job to enforce the rules, so I didn’t take any offense to it. The weight limits were as follows:

It was this moment where I realized that being 320llbs was more than a hindrance for clothing choice. Today, I saw that 4 of the activities we booked were not made for people my size. Of course, upon receiving the information, I kept the poker face. I said, oh well— let’s just see what we can do. My friends, well under 250 lbs, all made the cut. But, they still stood by me in not booking the excursions. We continued with the trip as scheduled and ended an almost perfect vacation.

From this trip, I realized that I loved to travel. I loved exploring a new culture and I loved the sun. I loved doing outdoorsy things and even walking far distances. But as I was researching other places to go, I noticed that I am too big to participate in resort activities. Skydiving, zip lining, sky lift, Bamboo River Rafting, and more. Now that I’ve contracted the wanderlust bug, does that mean I am forced to only stick to things within my weight range? Do I have to do extensive research on places that don’t have weight restrictions? I remember polling my friends on Facebook to ask if I would be turned away. An overwhelming majority said I wouldn’t. Boy were they wrong.

So I’ve decided to take some time and mull over this experience. I really want to do and see more. For my birthday, I was planning a trip to the Maldives until I realized that jetskis were involved…, weight wins again!

Go figures! So I think I am 99% sure about what my next steps are gonna be. Tune in next week as I share them. Til then, enjoy my flicks from the trip :).
