You’re Invited: Curvy Cocktails

August 11, 2016


I am literally BURSTING with excitement to finally share with you all this news. I am hosting my very first event in my hometown of Los Angeles, CA! I have been wanting to create an event for quite some time now and the time has finally come. The event is called Curvy Cocktails (cute right?) and it will be a chic cocktail affair to bring together bloggers, brands, models, curvy fashionistas and more. With Los Angeles being known for its highly superficial and stereotypical body standards, I really wanted to celebrate the vibrant community of curvy women that don’t necessarily fit the “mold” but are still thriving. In the land of Hollywood where often times people are trying to be someone they are not or conform to what everyone is telling them they should be, these women are not afraid to be who they are, at the size that they are, and shine!



Curvy Cocktails will be co-hosted by the amazing Candice Kelly who is a plus size model with Dorothy Combs Modeling Agency. She has become a well known name within the plus size community for her striking photos, larger than life personality and curvy frame.


We also have a special guest joining us for the event. It is none other than the verbal assassin herself, Mz Gossip Girl aka Nina Parker. Television personality, Access Hollywood Live contributor and Love & Hip Hop Reunion host, Nina has made her mark on the entertainment industry. Starting her career at TMZ, she has catapulted into the spotlight and shows no signs of stopping.


And then there’s me but you already know who I am 🙂


Lastly, we have some amazing sponsors for the event. These are brands that I have worked with before and can personally attest to the passion they have for making women look and feel great. The first is Fashion to Figure of whom we are all wearing below. Fashion to Figure specializes in chic and on-trend clothing that is perfect for a night out.

We also have Gwynnie Bee as sponsor of which we are all wearing below. Gwynnie Bee is a clothing subscription company for sizes 10-32. You can explore top brands from their amazing selection, closet as many items as you’d like for them to be delivered to your door, wear them and then swap them out for more items when you’re done!

I hope to see you all at Curvy Cocktails! You can get your tickets here. Thank you in advance for the support!
