Punch in the GUT

I woke up this morning to a beautiful sunrise, I swear I heard the birds chirping, and Cinderella singing in the far distance.

My morning was going GREAT until I logged into Facebook and they reminded me that on this day 4 years ago I had announced to the word that there would be a “New Girl in Town”.

*Gut Punch*

Grief really does come in waves… And right now I’m drowning😢

Being a woman is hard AF!!!

No boobs?! Buy some.

Short?! Just wear heels.

Tall for a woman?! Wear flats, ESPECIALLY, if you have a man that’s shorter than you.

Gain weight?! Go to Mexico and have surgery that just may kill you.

Your husband cheats on you?! Oh honey, that’s your fault because you’ve LET YOURSELF GO!

Chhhiiilllleeeee I tried my best to hold my tongue about the whole Lela Roshon scandal because I’ve been in her shoes… Both of them!

My husband, now ex-husband (Won’t he do it!), cheated on me AND I gained weight!!!

Just because a woman goes up a couple of dress sizes, DOES NOT give you the ok to body shame her because life happens and I’m sure your weight hasn’t been the same since you came into this world.

I remember when I returned to my home state of Mississippi after having traveled the world for the past 12 years due to the Air Force.

What people focused on the most upon seeing me was the fact that I’ve gained weight since the last time they’d seen me.

Unbeknownst to them…. I was just six months pregnant, two months ago, and I had lost my daughter.

I only returned home to heal and be around family; but all they could focus on was the by-product of my grief, hypothyroidism, and low vitamin D… My fatness.

This is why Aloha Glamour is AGAINST body shaming! This is why most of Aloha Glamour’s garments have an elastic waist band so you can gain or lose weight without worrying about IF your clothing will fit. (It saves you a lot of money too, btw)

But let me tell you what we not gone do! No longer will we body shame someone we’ve not seen in a while because we don’t know the private battles or illnesses they are battling.

I understand that a lot of women don’t know how to dress their body type because they don’t understand their body type.

If you’re that woman… You need our guide… You can find it here: http://www.alohaglamour.com

Let’s change the narrative!

Just say no to body shaming!

Like.

Comment and let me know how you feel about the whole situation.

Share this with your friends and family and let them know that we will not stand for this!

Peace, Love, and Glamour

Throwback Thursday

December 6, 2017-

I remember when I told people in 2017 that I wanted to start a business selling Hawaiian Pa’u Skirts and they would look at me with a side eye. When I told them I wanted to name it Aloha Glamour, they laughed.

I didn’t sell my first skirt until I had been in business for about 2 months. I became discouraged.

Making a one skirt sell a month was monumental for me… It was my goal.

Although I was discouraged I continued to push… With a smile on my face.

I had a team who believed in me and my brand.

My first vendor show was with the @msnaturalhairexpo and I sold more than half of my inventory😍. Talk about an aha moment! One skirt a month sale turned into 10-15 a month and I know that’s by the grace of God.

I thank everyone who has accompanied me on this journey.

I thank those who doubted me. I thank ALL of my Glamfriends who continue to invest and pour into our brand. @alohaglamourcouture is what it is because of you😍 2018 will only get better!!!! Are you ready? I am😉

Wow, looking back on 2018 we grossed $17,000. So far this year we have double… Almost tripled those numbers😍. I look forward to what 2019 has to offer us.

Are you ready? We are!!!
