My BFFIMH (Best Friend Forever in My Head… Duh!) Beyonce (Who else?!) has done it again!

With the release of her highly entertaining workout video aimed at getting today’s youth moving towards healthier lifestyles for the Michelle Obama, “Let’s Move” campaign, Bey is motivating all of us!

LOVES  it!!



Jill Scott and The A Group

Posted in Curvy News, Entertainment, Hollywood, Loves It!, Pop Culture on April 25, 2011 by miaamber

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Hollywood Listening Party for one of my all time favorite artists Jill Scott’s new album, “Light of the Sun.”

Jilly from Philly NEVER disappoints…ever!  I sang at the top of my lungs and sweat my hair out on a “school night!”

With a bolder than ever voice, a new home at Warner Brothers and incredible new background singers who go by the name, “The A Group” ( these girls can sang!!) Jill is poised to run to the top of the charts!

Here’s a look at the just released video for, “Shame,” one of the hottest songs on the album.  Jill and the girls were styled by the incomparable Susan Moses!

I can’t wait to hear the album in its entirety this summer when it’s released.

Congrats Jill!

I was pleasantly surprised as I was perusing the aisles at my local CVS (a favorite pastime) when I saw a familiar face!  One of my favorite people and nicest models in the industry, Kaylea Moss has a new campaign for Dove Visible Care!

I’m super proud! Congrats, Kaylea and kudos to Dove for continually recognizing beauty at any size!

Keep up the great work!



Barbie Gets Real

Posted in Get Fit Not Thin, Loves It!, Pop Culture on April 20, 2011 by miaamber

In an effort to bring awareness to National Eating Disorders Awareness Month, Galia Slayen decided to create a life-sized Barbie based on the iconic dolls dimensions. 

If Barbie were a real person she would be about six feet tall, and have 39-18-33 Bust-Waist-Hip measurements.

Slayen, a former anorexic, fashioned her Barbie in a size “00” jean skirt that she herself wore in the midst of her disease.

I think this is a powerful message on body image and the effects it has on girls, young and old alike.

You can read much more on Slayen and her message HERE


Shaun Ross

Pop Star Katy Perry has a brand new, visually stunning video for her new single, “E.T.” featuring Kanye West.  The real star of the video is not West or Perry but model, Shaun Ross.

I had the pleasure of meeting Shaun a few years ago as we both stood on line to audition for BET’s Rip the Runway and we reconnected in hair and make up this past season of the show.

Shaun is simply beautiful and his personality shines even brighter than the incredible future he has undoubtedly cemented for himself.  He’s found a way to own what makes him different and use it to his advantage.  We could all learn lots from Mr. Ross!
