Get Bra Confidence With These Tips

Last week I was invited to a local radio station in Philly Power 99FM. I was invited to talk about the business of beauty, bras and boobies on their podcast “Beauty & The Beast.” Hosted and created by Cappucino (@Capponair) because as she puts it beauty is a beast. 

Watch now and take notes on how you too can conquer the beast and get one step closer to comfort and confidence in your bra! Because it doesn’t have to hurt!

Why Your Bra Band is Riding Up and Digging In

First let me start by saying Happy Tata Tuesday! I’m starting something new by posting a video every Tuesday with a special Bra Care Tip. This week in our first episode I’m talking about your bra band. 

45% of women are wearing a bra with a band that is too BIG causing the band to move and ride up their back. While another 40% are wearing a bra with a band that is too SMALL causing a painful result!

Second to my birthday Valentines Day is one of my all time favorite holidays. Call me a hopeless romantic if you want but I love, love. Commercialism aside, Valentines day is the perfect excuse to show someone just how much you love them, just because.

Not that long ago I told women what to get their guys for Valentines day. As I don’t think the day should be all about my fellow ladies. Men need to get some love too. Having said that, recently I partnered with Simon Malls, Philadelphia Mills Location to feature my favorite Valentines Day Gift Ideas for 2016. What I love most about “The Mills” is that you have designer brands at deep discounts as well as boutique sized big named retail brands. Here’s what I found at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Saks Off 5th and Neiman Marcus Last Call! 

  1. The Cards + Candy


Yes, I’m that girl. I love flowers, cards and candy! My favorite cards and stationary are from Papyrus. And did you know Papyrus cards are sold at Bed, Bath & Beyond? Well now you do! Hallmark who? 

2. Gift Basket


Bed, Bath & Beyond is the perfect place to get creative on a budget for Valentines Day. I made this basket with all the great finds I collected there. Its my version of a his and hers (naught and nice) gift basket. Children exit stage right! Here’s whats inside: Pink blind fold, bullet shaped flask, feather duster, 750 thread count silk sheets, mens grooming kit and edible chocolate sauce. Share if you dare.

It’s a great investment! Think about it, your bra is the first thing you put on and the last thing you take off. It’s important. And just like your day, your outfit begins with a good bra, not great shoes. Start with a good bra fitting and then invest in whatever brand you can afford. You owe it to your self, your breast and your outfit! For more videos on all things bras, Check on my oldie but good, Skinny Minority’s 5 Ws Of Wearing A Bra! 

H&M Launches Pre Fall Collection w/ FOXES


Who is Foxes… Foxes is an English singer and songwriter.

I love Summer but, as you all know Fall is my all time favorite season. Not only because its my birthday season but because of the fashion. Recently, The Karma Agency, who represents Simon Malls reached out to me about working with H&M on the launch of their new pre fall collection, Foxes. H&M, new fall clothes to me it was a win win. When I went in-store to see the collection I was delighted by that I saw. The Foxes line as H&M describes it is ” Foxes represents everything our Divided collection stands for: fun, quirky, and fashion! This is the perfect trend for the girl who loves a sporty and sexy look! The trend is called “Varsity” and it features many cool sport inspired pieces with stripes, bold graphics and team numbers.
