I woke up like this, I woke up like this!! FLAWLESS Gabifresh is just that!!!

I am officially part of the Gabifresh Crew!!! Being a Curvy blogger has been my most interesting and fun career move as of yet and boy it just got spicy. Fellow Blogger and curvy diva Gabifresh has done what so many of us imagine doing in our head but just don’t have the gusto to get it done.

Let me first say that I am not a fan of the booty popping, twerking epidemic that is going around. Don’t get me wrong….everything in moderation and I’m all for a good time but the images of full-figured women getting attention by popping that *ss is played out and should be put down. Gabi and her crew presented the exact opposite.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s  verse on Flawless says  “We teach girls to shrink themselves to make themselves smaller” we curvy girls can take that literally . We are taught from children that we are wrong for being larger than other girls. That we should be ashamed of ourselves. Chubby is a nice, bad word  and fat is a bad, bad word. Are we teaching our girls to be unhealthy? NO! The list of women who are plus size and have their own exercise programs and health food classes are endless. 

Full Figured doesn’t equate with lazy, and classless in fact the women I have the pleasure of meeting, knowing and working with are some of the classiest by far they hold themselves to a certain standard and it is something I strive for each and everyday ( It’s a task at times).

Gabi, Tess and Nadia kudos and a standing ovation! You ladies represented you did it classy and sexy. Take a minute to watch these ladies in action.  Continue to be flawless and add a touch of class and sass! xoxo Ki
