Happy 9th Birthday NoMinusPlus!

Happy Sunday Darling Divas!

I know that I typically don’t post on weekends, but today is a very special exception. Today is the 9th birthday of NoMinusPlus! 9 years ago today I posted my first blogpost here on NoMinusPlus, and rest is history! I want to first start off this blogpost by saying Thank You. Thank you for 9 years of love, 9 years of support, and 9 years of fashionable bliss! Every year I do a video to celebrate, and this year is no different. To celebrate NoMinusPlus I am taking a look at the first fashion post of the blog and using the tips in that post to create a lookbook! So sit back, relax, and celebrate the blog with me!

I hope that you all have enjoyed! It was so nice to look back at my earlier posts, have a good laugh, and finally be able to create again in my studio!

A Day In The Life of Brie: An Unexpected NYC Adventure

Hello All My Darling Diva’s!

It feels so good to type up a new blogpost. It’s been a hot minute! If you had a chance to see my latest video, I mentioned that I want to post more lifestyle content in hopes that we can connect more. I decided that the best way to do this would be to expand my current IG story segments, so today I am kicking my new lifestyle content with an expanded version of A Day in The Life of Brie, which is my Vlogging segment that I usually post only on my IG Stories. In this episode of a day in the life of Brie, I take an unexpected fabulous trip to N.Y.C. to drop off a SlayBJanae order to a special client. So enjoy the video and meet me below for more details!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope so! I plan to do A Day in the Life of Brie once a month, so stay tuned! Below you can find links to the people and items shown and mentioned in this video.

Happy Friday Darling Divas!

I am back again with yet another OOTD post, and I am excited because it features one of my favorite t-shirts that I have been DYING to wear since I purchased it! That’s So Raven was my favorite show growing up and provided me with so much representation and inspiration. I also have often been told that I look a lot like Raven Symone, so that’s also always a plus! When I first laid eyes on this shirt I knew I had to have it, and knew that it would be a hit when I finally was able to wear it! I decided to take it for a spin at my Godson’s first bday party last weekend I was and feeling all my Raven Symone feels!

Happy Humpday Darling Divas!

Let me first start this blog post off by saying happy pride to all my Darling Divas/o that are celebrating this month. You all so beautifully live out loud all year round, but June is your month to shine and I hope you have been enjoying it thus far! This week I am back with another fun and fabulous OOTD that I am so excited to share! This past Saturday I went to Sesame Place for my niece’s 2nd b-day, and I thought it was the perfect occasion to break out this fabulous skirt that I got from Ashley Stewart’s Curvy Girl Pride Collection! I have always loved the rainbow, so when I snagged my hands on this skirt I was one happy camper! As an Ally to the LGBTQIA+ community recognizing and celebrating Pride is always a big deal for me, so I’m glad to see that brands like Ashley Stewart have joined in on the celebration! Most of the collection is now sold out, but click here to check out what they may have left!
