Hey Loves,
The Ashley Graham train shows no signs of slowing down and that is very clear today with the release of her new swim collection with SwimSuitsForAll. Her collection launched today and it is every bit of James Bond realness. It’s pretty awesome. I also had the amazing chance to try on 2 of her bathing suits while live of Facebook with Buzzfeed. You can watch the play back on BuzzFeed Style’s Facebook page.

This espionage bikini isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s super sexy and leaves noting to the imagination. But hey at least your tan will be on fleek!
Liasion Swimsuit (I suggest sizing up for the bust)
 Secret Agent Siren Swimsuit (and it comes in black) For girls with a long torso I would suggest sizing up. 
Heist Swimsuit.This one looks great on smaller bust women.
Double Cross Black Bikini (it comes in red as well) I tried this one on in a size 20. So I suggest sizing up. 
The Spy Swimsuit is by far my favorite. I tried on a size 18 and definitely think it’s true to size.
Shop the ENTIRE collection!

ATGCinPR; Curves on the Beach

Hey Loves,

This is the post I was most excited to write.Truth be told 1 main reason why I wanted to go to Puerto Rico was so I could visit Flamenco Beach & be sexy in my plus size swimwear. I bought like 8 bathing suits with me, so deciding which ones to shoot was SUPA hard. But Flamenco Beach was absolutely beautiful, the water was so clear, the sand was so white, it was fabulous. Definitely nothing like up here in Jersey. I couldn’t wait to get on the beach with my Pina Colada and get in front of the camera. Check out the pics below. As always shout out to my guy for being my photographer. He always has an eye for a good photo.

Different brands have all kinds of options, colors. and prices for us. So I collected 5  bathing suits that I think will have you turning heads this summer.

#LoveyourSelfie

Hey Loves,

In case you already didn’t know last week, I had the most AMAZING  pleasure to be a part of the Today Show’s #LoveyourSelfie series. All of last week, each day the Today Show team highlighted different topics to help people learn to love themselves. Not just talking body weight, also disabilities & general self image. Myself and a handful of amazing women got together with fashion extraordinaire Gok Wan to be a force of inspiration for Bella, who had been battling body image issues. Issues that she was desperate to not pass on to her 19 year old daughter. We each stripped down to bra & panties at first, then ultimately bathing suits. And I can tell you, it was one of the best times in my life.

So for the 1st time in my life I was on national television in a bathing suit. My 14 year old self wouldn’t never have believed this could happen. I did it because I’m always preaching to you all to be fearless, and bold and just put on that bathing suit & love it. And even though I’ve worn bathing suits before, there’s something different about wearing on in front of millions of people.

Not only was I grinning because I was about to be on tv, but around the corner from where I was standing was the dressing rooms of Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb & Carson Daly. I was in total groupie mode lol

The Love your Selfie week really is something remarkable. So many men & women, boys & girls deal with body image, and hate what they see when they look in the mirror because of one thing or another. I am so blessed & extremely humbled to have been a part of this, and the out pouring I love that I have received from you all was so much more than I could have ever asked for. I hope that you can take charge of your body and learn to accept all that you have. It’s easier said than done, I understand, but we have one body, why walk around hating it? 
Until next time loves
