The 100 Most Powerful Black Women on Twitter


Allow me to get personal for a moment. Today has been an emotional rollercoaster.

Old Navy Steps Up Their Plus Size Game


Ugh, I hate when I’m caught sleeping on a clothing brand I’ve been following for a while! I wasn’t particularly impressed with some of Old Navy’s women’s plus stuff earlier this season.
