Swimsuit Round-Up


The warmer weather is here and it's time to hit the pool or beach. I love having plenty of options when it comes to swimsuits. Some of my favorite places to shop for swimsuits are Lane Bryant, Old Navy, Target and Wal-Mart. One place I want to try a swimsuit from is Eloquii and Swimsuitsforall. Over the years Gabbi Fresh Plus-Size Blogger  has been collaborating with Swimsuits For All and giving us curvy sisters a run for our money. I haven't tried it out yet but I hopefully I can this Summer.

My Favorite places to shop :


Lane Bryant

Old Navy 


Places I want to try this year:


Swimsuits for All



March Amazon Purchases


Last month I needed to head to AA ( Amazon Anonymous) because I made so many purchases. I love how easy it is to type what you need in the search bar, decided if it's Prime and then  Bam! You just bought too many things  in one setting*le sigh*. I was going to cancel my prime membership but I decided to change my mind and keep it because Timothy and I both benefit from it. Below are a few items that I purchased last month.

March Recap


March such a fun month for me ! It was my birthday month for one and during this month I accomplished some goals. Back in March I landed a one a GREAT paid campaign and I can't wait to share the details. But in the meantime I'll be sharing some of my favorites from the month of March.

1.My Style

This month I feel like I've stepped it up a little bit towards the end of the month to prepare for my birthday. I shopped online at the beginning of the month just in time to rock these outfits during my birthday weekend.

3.Kate Spade Bag

I purchased a new bag for my birthday which I started this tradition last year during quarantine. Kate Spade has surprises sales everyday and this particular bag was on sale for $89. I couldn't pass it up and the color was perfect.

4. Chanel Chance

This has been my perfume scent of the month. I finally hit the first bottle of the scent of this set. I've has this since 2018 in the summer. 

5.Hair Style

I've been trying new hairstyles my natural hair and I think I found my new go to style. This ponytail style has become my new favorite this month. I even switched things up by adding  a different hair type of ponytail. 

Stay tuned for more to come this month! Hopefully I can get back to doing weekly recaps this month. 



Cheers To 30!


Ya'll it's my 30th Birthday 30 on 3/30 honey and I feel that it's something so special about this birthday. Last year I couldn't celebrate the way I wanted to because of COVID-19 but I made it happen. 

"They tried it, they went for it. All year you're still here, just ignore it. " - Drake

As I reflect and close the chapter on my 20's I can say I'm content. I accomplished so much in my 20's when I look back on it. From landing major campaigns, traveling, getting married to my best friend, getting my bachelors degree, becoming an aunt and getting a job I always wanted.   The list goes on but the most important thing I've gained in my 20's is loving myself and accepting Ireana! 

Whew it was a ride to get here, trips, falls mistakes, setbacks etc. But here I am Thirty and Thriving, I feel like I've stepped over into another level of my life. Another level of setting boundaries, doing what I love, more life a living with purpose. 

My Mantras for 30

  • Healing is important 
  • Everything I want is on the other side of fear
  • " It is what it is.."
  • I'm worth it and more
  • Find a way to make it happen
  • Trust the process
  • Live as if it's the last day
  • Wake up with a purpose
  • Live not just survive
  • Set those healthy boundaries 
  • Normalize "I don't want to" without an explanation
  • My peace and mental health is important
