Ive been MIA and this is just a quick post, Its Festival time and I am just a few days outside of a week away from SunFest 2012. Be sure to check out the site to see what Im up to.

The Bikini Dilemma on K is for Kinky by Nikia Phonenix made me want to write a brief something.

So heres the deal.  I realize some people don’t have access to me through other various Social Media Outlets and I want to do a quick post about Loving Your Body.

Lots of chatter going on around the interwebs as summer approaches about body acceptance and the two piece swimming suit.  Often times folk think that this is something that only plussize girls have to worry about it but the sames trials and tribulations we suffer also happen at the other end of the spectrum.

I struggled the most with my Body Image from 6th grade probably until my Sophomore Year in College. There no reason to list all of the insults that I received, but we all know how it goes. At my largest I was a 22 and at my smallest I was 10. So truly for me this is both ends of the spectrum, before we begin to cast judgement.  Ive always been DOPE and had my own sense of style, I was never hood enough for the Black Chicks and I aroused suspicion in the White Kids. Either way at some point in time during that trek I came to realize that I love me.  Yes, I’m a plussize, but honestly I’m just me.  I have no desire to be teeny tiny just as I have no desire to be back at a 22.  Ive maintained my weight for the last 2  years at a 14-16 which I honestly feel is my natural size.

I say all of this to say there is no shame in my game when it comes to rocking whatever it is I feel like wearing and I look forward to summer cause it means less clothes and two-pieces. So below you will find a few pics of how I rock my two piece style and I encourage you to do the same.  Love your belly, love your body, love yourself, and other folks wiill have no choice but to fall in line or get gone!
