Bajan Beauty

For so many, Barbados is a place to "get away from it all", but, for me, the beauty of this country goes beyond its gorgeous sandy beaches, warm weather and kind people.  Barbados is a place with a rich history and culture and a place I called home for a part of my childhood.

In May, my mother and I took an impromptu trip to Barbados to visit one of my aunts who had become quite ill.  Though she passed away moments before we arrived, we were still able to make the best of the trip by reconnecting with family and friends who we had not been able to visit in about 18 years.  It was amazing and I certainly will not be waiting another 18 years to return to a place that has always held a very special place in my heart.

Below, I've included just a few other pictures from my trip.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.

Plus-Size Outfit Inspiration: Little White Romper

As I said in my previous post (see here), a romper can be a great choice for those hot summer days.  Below, I've styled this adorable little white romper casually so that it would be great for a afternoon stroll on the beach or for quick bite with the girls.

While I realize that some plus-size women may want to shy away from all-white looks, in fear of looking larger, the reality is that a garment that fits well, no matter its color, will always make you look your best.

Thanks for reading.
