"I ain't sayin' that I'm the best, but I'm the best!" - Mary J. Blige, "The One"

Ok, ladies. Time for a self-esteem check. Do you find yourself dimming your star for fear of outshining others? So often we feel like it's prideful to acknowledge our greatness. But remember, it takes nothing away from someone else simply to shine at your brightest.

Have a SPARKLING day, ladies!

Did You Catch “Curvy Style” on Centric TV?

Did you catch "Curvy Style with Timothy Snell" on Centric TV this past Saturday? This docu-series airs at 10pm Eastern and features A-list celebrity stylist Timothy Snell - or as client Queen Latifah calls him, the "Curvy King". On each episode he will help bring chic to every physique. I really enjoyed the premiere episode, which featured not only outfitting Queen Latifah for a red carpet premiere, but also helping an overwhelmed mom go from drab to fab for her 40th birthday.

I will definitely be adding this show to my weekly television viewing schedule.

What about you? Did you watch it? What did you think?

Well, it's the beginning of a new month. How are we doing with those ambitious goals we set out at the beginning of the year? If you find yourself languishing, remember that there is no "magic" to starting in January. Ultimately, the first step is simply getting started.

Have a great week, everyone!
