In 2010 an overweight black girl moved from Brooklyn, New York back to her hometown of Philadelphia to start a fashion business. That business would later work with household names like Macys, No nonsense, Lane Bryant, Ebony Magazine and Tatiana Ward aka Beat Face Honey! Who is she? She is me and me is Karima Renee. Check out my thought on being female, black and in business as shared with Public Insights Network!

How To Wash Your Bra

Hi Ladies, 

Many of us will be traveling during this holiday season and may not have a washing machine readily available. Which may be a good thing. Washing your bra in the washer is one of the worst things you can do to it, besides wearing it several days in a row! 

Note: There should be at least 2 rest days in-between each bra wear. It helps the bra keep its shape and elasticity! 

So how do you wash your through the holidays and beyond? Watch this quick video for some amazing stylist tips! And if you have more question, comment below or tweet us @SkinnyMinority.

We say Yes! Check out how you can pencil this trend into your calendar.
