Thursday Thunder: Morgan Reid

Morgan Reid interview

We met a couple of years ago in New York and had the best time. She let me sleep in her bed -I mean, that’s love… And showed me around Brooklyn and other cool parts of New York. I even did a shoot on her rooftop (hello dream!). Later on she visited me in Amsterdam and I returned the favor of taking her around my city. Morgan Reid is a special kinda person.

Morgan Reid, a girl you just have to meet -mic drop. So here you go…

Ivy Park plus size try out

I have a thing for Beyoncé. So when I heard that she was about to launch a performance wear clothing line named Ivy Park I got pretty curious. I read a lot of things like ‘it’s a brand inspiring us to stay strong, healthy and happy – no matter what your sporting ability or body shape’. Would my body shape fit into Ivy Park?
