Fashion to me is nothing but a bunch of senseless trends that come and go with the voices of “fashion” society. Style on the other hand is something tangible, it defines who we are as people. Our style of dress, style of cooking, style of talking and more. Style is forever, I have always lived by the motto “clothes have sizes but style does not”. Meaning anyone at any age and size can have style! Own your style, be confident in who you are and what you represent in this world. There is clothing out there for everyone, what we do with it and how we wear it…..is style. I like for my clothing to fit a certain way to flatter my body type. I have short arms and legs (29 inch inseam) so I often have to get a 30 inch inseam and get them altered to fit my style. That’s okay, unfortunately we don’t live in an era anymore where clothing was made for our bodies. It’s more of a “fast fashion” type of industry, still don’t let that stop you from looking your best. Wear what makes you feel comfortable, that’s you and that’s style! #StyleHasNoSize 🙂
Hello all! I have teamed up with Carmex to bring you all some personal knowledge on expanding your comfort zone. Being a body positivity activist I often have to step out of my comfort zone to help spread the message of self love. We live in a world where people will encourage you to “play it safe” and not take risks. I’m here to tell you to do the opposite. Expand your comfort zone whether it be wearing that bathing suit you always wanted to wear or going after that dream job you’ve always wanted. It can even be as simple as trying a new food or a new color for your clothing. Carmex has stepped outside of their comfort zone to bring us the Carmex Comfort Care lip balm, it comes in an array of flavors and has my lips feeling silky smooth. Whatever you do to expand your comfort zone just keep being positive while living this wonderful life. Be you and be confident!
Love, Laugh and Live freely 🙂

When I think of a magic carpet, my brain automatically jumps to Disney’s Aladdin. I would have never imagined making shoes out of carpets, but that’s what Artemis Design Companydoes. They do what most people don’t think about. Turning beautiful unique Turkish flying carpets into one of kind pieces of art that we can wear on our feet (Kilim loafers). Each pair is one of one so when you purchase it, you know you have the only pair in the world. It resonates to how special and unique we all are as individuals! There is only one of us, so naturally having an item that fits that same mold is a must. Every pair is handmade adding that that extra special topping to the process. I mean how original do I look in this outfit? I would say, very!!
Wearing denim on denim can be hard for some guys to pull off but I have a little secret. The secret to pulling this off is to wear two different denims, here I have on a rugged medium/light wash jean jacket and grey denim jeans. What this does is break up the denim into two separate pieces. We have all heard of the term Canadian tuxedo but truth is you can look stylish in one. Also keep in mind when you are sporting denim on denim always choose a solid colored shirt! A solid colored shirt helps break up the denims as well, the shoes can go anyway from dressy to casual. That all depends on what you’re feeling at the moment. For me, I decided to go with my new Zebra Yeezy 350 V2’s, I was so happy to win these in a giveaway. Some of us get lucky with the Yeezy and some don’t. I personally can attest to how difficult it is to get a pair of these gems but when you get them it feels awesome! Don’t be afraid to rock a Canadian tuxedo……just keep in mind the advice I mentioned above and you will be A OKAY!! 🙂
