FFFWeek™: Opening day with press event and white on white cruise

After posting my outfits for every event, I would like to share some photos of mad fashion week dedicated to large sizes: Full Figured Fashion Week ™ .
The first day, as official blogger, I was invited to the “press and buyers event”. This is actually the unofficial launch of the festivities with the press presentation of the different brands and companies who have made the trip for this event.
I could discover in preview some collections we found later in the week at various shows.
Here is an overview of the morning!

A magical moment around Manhattan. We came close to Statue of Liberty, admired a beautiful sunset, danced, ate, made silly photos from a booth specially fitted on board and saw boys scroll. Well, it does not show moved me. Not at all.
Yes well it’s taken with Instagram eh …

Volup2 Magazine!

Volup2 Magazine is finally online! It’s creator is Velvet d’Amour, plus size model and photographer. 
A few months ago, Velvet teamed with Plus Size Tall (french and uk) website to organise an online casting to find the next cover of the magazine! Instead of choosing one winner, Velvet finally chosed more than 30 women! 
I won’t tell you again the story beetween Velvet and me (read it on Sonsi Living)! 
I could have only posted the link of Volup2 on the blog’s page but I definitely had to share here as I am also starring in the magazine! 
I didn’t applied during the casting. Modelling is just not my thing. All happened a sunday morning when Velvet contacted me as a last minute model for a beauty photoshoot. I felt so happy and remembered everything that I got from the photoshoot for Winkler that I jumped and runed to the photoshoot! 
That was amazing! I had a blast while Nallah, the make up artist was colouring my face! You can see how happy I was later in the evening, so I went a bit crazy with a Gif generator! 
Well! Take a look at Volup2 Magazine and let me know what you think about it! 

Ça y est! Il est enfin là! Le magazine créé par le mannequin et photographe Velvet d’Amour: Volup2 Magazine!
J’ai suivi de loin l’histoire de sa création, notamment le casting organisé en collaboration avec les équipes de Ma Grande Taille ( France et uk).
Une seule gagnante devait être choisie pour une série photos et c’est finalement une trentaine modèles qui se sont retrouvés au centre de toutes les attentions.
Velvet n’a pu se décider et a choisi toutes ces jeunes femmes dont l’histoire avec leur corps l’avait profondément émue.
J’aurais pu juste poster le lien du magazine sur la page des Pitreries mais il se trouve que je me retrouve par hasard moi aussi dans cette aventure!
Je l’ai déjà raconté: Velvet est la première femme ronde bien dans son corps que j’ai rencontrée. C’était le 27/05/2007 à l’occasion de son son vide dressing. Mes aventures vestimentaires commençaient.
Depuis, je l’ai suivie de loin entre réseaux sociaux et Tv réalité (souvenez-vous de la Ferme), je l’ai même interviewée pour ma rubrique sur Sonsi Living.
Je n’aime pas les castings. Mon but dans la vie n’est pas de devenir mannequin ou de faire des photos à tour de bras. Mais lorsqu’un dimanche matin j’ai reçu un mail de Velvet qui m’informait qu’un modèle avait annulé le shooting du jour même, j’ai senti monter en moi toutes les folles émotions que j’avais vécue pendant la séance avec Mario Epanya pour Winkler. J’ai presque couru pour m’y rendre! J’ai vécu une formidable expérience qui m’a permis de rencontrer une jeune femme talentueuse: la Make Up artiste Nallah qui en quelques minutes m’a transmis sa passion pour le maquillage. Elle a une énergie incroyable! C’est une jeune femme à suivre (sa page).
Pour en revenir au shooting, c’est une série speciale beauté avec des peaux noires. Je suis toujours émerveillée lorsque je découvre mon visage transformé de cette façon! Je n’ai encore une fois pas voulu me démaquiller avant de longues heures à tel point que j’ai fait joujou avec mon appareil pour créer un Gif. Du grand n’importe quoi!
Je vous invite à feuilleter le magazine et surtout, dites moi ce que vous en pensez!

Afrosomething thank you

If you do not follow the web news of recent days, find a summary of the facts and outcome on the site Afrosomething : you will learn how the popular Elle magazine has been engaged in pure and simple racism under cover an article on fashion “Black fashion Power”.
Thank you to the team Afrosometing bringing this battle on his shoulders and the entire 2.0 black community mobilized to this magazine removed the article from the shame of its website and the editor chief apologizes.
I have deep respect for all those who did not wait for the controversy to promote black culture in all its diversity and wanted to share it with the readers of this blog.
I wish you a good week!

Mary Melody: surprise

I received an invitation in the last few weeks to discover the new collection of Mary Melody , and I wondered what I will do there.

I went anyway, without much conviction because knitting, cashmere all this is not my thing.

I think the main reason is that I grew up in the sun. Never below 25 degrees all my life and I know that winter since September 2001. My grandmother never told knitted wool cap! Suffice to say that I do not know nothing. Especially as I walk in the visual regarding the clothes, even the ones I bought online and sincerely Mary Melody site did not give me any desire the last time I went. I thought it was outdated, heavy and aesthetically not highlighted and with the price, I’m not telling you my total disinterest.


I was touched that notwithstanding the brand thought of me for their presentation. I went all perky! And what was not my surprise!


A complete overhaul of the site took place. The products are the same. The collection still consists essentially of units produced with noble materials such as cashmere, silk, wool, cottons, linen, blends silk / cotton but I do not know, there is something different and younger, fresher, more fun especially in the presentation.


It is true that it is very classic but are basic to accessorize for several years. The finishes are superb, the sweetness of some parts surprised me. Remember that it was a first for me. 
I offer you some pictures from the current collection, including my favorite pieces. I assure you I have not quite appreciated: the capes for example is no way for me.
For information: Marie Melody clothes us from 34 to 58 between 80 and 200 €. 
The prices are the same regardless of our size. 
shipping costs are € 10 per DHL (from Belgium) and free above 70 € purchase. 
The brand is also available in store. The list is available on the website.

Ticket trend: the Color Block

 The principle? Boost its closets with energy and vitamin content colors. 
For spring-summer 2011, the ultra colorful is a must! I propose today a look very “trendy blogger who believes it.”
 I have respected any code. I wanted to wear my yellow jacket unearthed in the famous New York thrift: Re / Dress and skirt my skater Call Me Ponie very soft. 
So I started to get dressed quietly taking items that had nothing to do with each other with a dress to wear under the skirt and here is the result! 
What do you think? Colors associate like that casually to greet the sun, anyone? 
Let’s talk about this season trend: Color Block! 
Basically, it’s when you wear different colors to give some energy to your look and wardrobe. 
Well! Here I am with an example! 
I really wanted to wear this yellow jacket I got from Re/Dress NYC and this amazing skirt from Call Me Ponie. 
So I started mixing and matching colors and ended completely in the Color Block trend! 
So? What do you think? Have you started blocking colors to greet the sun?

Understanding Various Cosmetic Dental Procedures

White sparkling teeth add up to a beautiful smile. Stained or crooked teeth lower the self-esteem of individuals. However, do not panic because you can go through dental procedures to enhance your personality and boost your confidence. Additionally, however much you take care of your teeth, you cannot prevent loss of teeth, cracked or chipped teeth due to various reasons. You can find the calgary dentists se offers to get a restorative dental procedure to restore cracked, missing or chipped teeth.


Cosmetic dental procedures

Teeth whitening procedures entail a routine that uses a laser, and it takes about an hour. The method gets rid of stains. Note that brushing your teeth every day does not necessarily mean that they will never be discolored. Thus, going for a teeth whitening procedure will restore your discolored teeth.


Dental veneers procedure takes care of teeth that do not become white even after a teeth whitening procedure. If teeth whitening treatment procedures do not work then, dentists opt for dental veneers. Dentists place tooth veneers on your natural teeth to give them a brighter overall look. Porcelain veneers are durable and stronger than other treatments, so they last for a long time.


Gum surgery is another procedure that gives a healthy smile to patients. Some people have larger gums, which makes them nervous. A cosmetic surgeon will carry out a gum surgery and other cosmetic dental procedures.


Dental bridge procedure entails fixing a space in a patient’s mouth using a bridge. The space in your mouth could be a result of missing teeth or a way of pulling to take care of the health of your teeth. A dental bridge allows an individual to chew food as if he or she still has teeth. Dental bridge does not have to be removed like partial dentures. People feel comfortable wearing dental bridge, and it provides instant results.


Dental bonding is a procedure that enhances your smile. Dental bonding will help you if you have a gap in your teeth or spots on your teeth since the procedure bonds the teeth. A dentist places a thick layer of material in front of your teeth. After that, the dentist shows up a laser beam to the mouth to help harden the substance that creates a bond that will last for a long time.


Fear of dentists

Most people have dental anxiety, and that explains why they do not go for dental visits at least twice each year. If you fail to visit your dentist regularly, you can be sure you will not keep your teeth clean and healthy. If you have dental anxiety, then you will eventually visit your dentist when it is mandatory as a result of a dental problem that will require intervention. Not all dentists will cause a bad experience. To trust your dentist, the environment of the clinic should be friendly. Most importantly, patients with fear should talk to their dentists about the anxiety and some of your past bad experiences. Sometimes sedation treatment comes in handy.


Understanding the current condition of your dental health is essential in knowing the treatment procedure. Consult your dentist to come up with the right method based on your condition to get your smile back.
