1 Body Chain, 2 Ways, and 2 Countries 

When I was away in Haiti last August, I managed to sneak in one one photo shoot. I never published the pictures, but there’s a reason why…

  

  

   
Everything was perfect—my Monif C. fringed swimsuit, my ASOS sandals, and of course, my Ready To Stare body harness… 

   

 
    

 

  

  
 
Perfect, except for the fact that I was wearing it wrong—because screwing up is kind of my thing… *sigh*

    

   

  

  

But the beach was exquisite, as was my beautiful fat bod in that suit, and honestly, even though I wore it wrong, the chain body harness actually looked pretty amazing this way too! 

   

  

  
So, I decided to shoot some fab pics back home in Canada, wearing it the right way this time (Duh!) with a fab Kiyonna dress from SexyPlus Clothing, to show everyone that you can definitely have some fun playing around with body chains! We’ll just keep the fact that this was a totally unintentional discovery between us, though… K?

  

  
  
   
 

We can also keep the fact that it took me nearly six months to get around to shooting the second half of this post… Because procrastination is also my thing…

  
  
  


But it all actually worked out, because the contrast between my natural, freckled skin under the golden Haitian sun, and my ultra glam look, set against the backdrop of an icy frozen lake, is truly quite amazing!
  

  
  

And the discovery that this body chain is much more versatile than I had ever expected was a definite bonus! 

  
  
  

Sure, I wish I was on a beach in Haiti again right now, after sifting through my vacation photos… But at least I know I have my body chain to add some pizazz to my swimsuits on my next trip, and until then, it can look just as awesome in the snow!

Keeping Up With The Penningtons 

It’s been a minute since I’ve given you an update on the goings-on over on The Penningtons Blog

In one post, I held a vote on which Penningtons look I would sport on my flight to Haiti! 

  
And in my next post, I showed you that #1 was the undisputed pick for flying in style and comfort!

  

But don’t think that #2, and 3 didn’t get to see Haiti’s sunny shores… 

  
Vacays can’t last forever, unfortunately, and it’s always tough to get back into the work grind afterwards, but when your job involves writing a post about your life, your passion (duhhh, cheesecake — I mean blogging!!!), and how you got there, coming home doesn’t seem so bad! 
  
So be sure to head over and read up on what’s been happening with me on The Penningtons Blog, and don’t forget to check in just about every week to keep up!
