It’s been awful quiet around here. For the past several months I’ve been focusing on rebuilding my health, training for races, and my first marathon, in Paris (I’ll post on that over on my travel blog). Hence the over-saturation of health-related posts on my Twitter timeline! But in immersing myself in the world of health and fitness, I had forgotten about my love of fashion. No doubt working out has caused me to lose tons of pounds and inches (over 40!) but my weight loss and lifestyle has relegated me to a sea of spandex and running shoes – both out of fear and complete confusion.
A recent glance at my closet had me realizing that I had nothing to wear. All my clothes were just too big, unflattering, or just not my taste anymore. So I’ll be taking the next few weeks to gather some Instagram and Pinterest inspiration, while I find my new style. Nothing like a fresh start.

With spring here, its a great time for cleaning, renewal, and fresh beginnings. I’ve been doing a whole lot of that around my house, especially as I develop my green thumb by planting my own organic fruits and vegetables. Things are going great so far, and hopefully I’ll have a healthy harvest this summer and fall.
I called up a trainer friend of mine to help whip me into shape. It’s been quite a while since I threw on my white freak-um dress, and I’ve decided that this will be the year that I throw out the “mommy” excuses and just get it together. So I will, with the help of my trainer, be fit and trim for the Hamptons.
I am going to dedicate this space to all things that inspire me to look, feel, and be my healthiest, and what greater way to gain inspiration, than to look at a good selection of beautiful healthy black women. I’ve already made my personal board, and decided to put this one up on Pinterest, and add to it as I get inspired. I hope you make your own, or follow this one as well. Here’s to bikini bodies!
