Hi Lovies!

It always surprises me when women ask me in person or via social media "How did you become so confident with your body?" It surprises me because, though I may look confident, I still continue to have my issues with body acceptance. We all have our qualms with our bodies, from the skinniest of girls to the heaviest of girls. After I had my son (in 1996), I gained a lot of weight due to being depressed in the relationship I was in with my son's father. We eventually broke up but it wasn't until 2006 when I decided to get out my funk and make a change. I'm still not where I want to be but I am happy in the skin I'm in.

That's why I love the #ImNoAngel Campaign by Lane Bryant. In one day LB has revolutionized the definition of sexy. I had the honor of being apart of this amazing movement last Monday and I'll never forget it. They are promoting that ALL bodies are sexy no matter what shape or size you are. AS well as empowering women to embrace their bodies and not be ashamed of it, to own you sexy! It was just amazing to be riding around NYC in the "Plus Size" bus, as we called it, with beautiful plus size models of different sizes and ethnicity. Seeing the reactions of the people and how excited they were as the models gave out the wildly popular #ImNoAngel t-shirts. Umm not to mention they had Salt N Pepa perform on the bus! The #ImNoAngel hashtag was flooding every social media outlet and it was just great to see women using it along with pictures and captions of what sexy meant to them. The Ceo of Lane Bryant Linda Heasley couldn't have said it any better.
"Our #ImNoAngel" campaign is designed to empower ALL women to love every part of herself. Lane Bryant firmly believes that she is sexy and we want to encourage her confidently show it, in her own way."

So I want all you women out there to join the movement and make this your mantra!

"I'm all woman, a symbol of confidence who writes her own rules and sometimes breaks them too. I'm phenomenal from my soul out to my skin. Loving every part of me unique and complete. I break the mold, I'm no angel. I'm all kinds of sexy!"

Thanks for reading!!
