I was featured in Plus Model Magazine as a model to watch. It was my first interview/feature :)
I started my blog with a post about how to love your body at any size. It was all about the 'labels' that society put's on us. It was super successful, and my blog has continued to grow and reach women everywhere. I was also featured in my first 'Fatshion' Blog:
I took it off for Monique Antionette, and my career exploded. I could have never dreamed the impact my imfamous "bunny" photos would have.

My little Nugget Started Kindergarten
& sadly my little angel Vince Munoz lost his brave battle with brain cancer.
This part deserves so much more than what I'm saying, but it's too hard, & somethings are better left unsaid. This was by far the hardest thing I endured all year, & it changed my life in a positive way. Life is short, Remember that.. & cherish those you love.

Words can't even sum up what this year meant to me. I worked my ass off, and in the end, it paid off. I'm no where near where I want to be in my career, but I'm so grateful for how far I've gotten in only a year. I have met some great people this year, that have changed my life in way's that I couldn't even dream. Never did I think that I would be part of a revolution of women that are standing together to say "ENOUGH", & making sure that they are not only heard, but SEEN! Being "fat" no longer means that you have to be ashamed, it now means that you can have a FABULOUS life, and be recognized for who you are, not what you look like.
Thank YOU for following me, supporting me, & making me see MY worth! I love you all!
Here's to 2012, & as my friend said last night: "We are gonna make 2012 our bitch!"
