Backstage Pass with Sarah Potenza

Remember the woman with the big, white glasses who received a four chair turn on Season 8 of The Voice?  Well, that beauty is the very talented Sarah Potenza and so much has happened since we last saw her on our television screens!

After a busy day of working hard, she decided to take a moment to chat with me about her life after The Voice and her blossoming career!  Potenza is one hard working woman.  She loves what she does so much and it shows in her work!  Never have I spoken with someone who is so hands-on when it comes to their craft!  

Although she has a wonderful team (including her husband) around her to help, she enjoys being involved in every aspect of her business!  She is on the ground running by making contacts and building relationships with people in the media. Potenza is not shy when it comes to setting up her own appointments and interviews.  However, one of her favorite things to do is getting the chance to call up the radio stations playing her music and personally thanking them.  

Potenza is extremely ambitious!  This actually is very visible in her song Monster and it’s video!  She spent so many years allowing her internal feelings about her full-figured size to take over her life that when she broke free of those feelings, she just had to share it with the world!  That is was the song is all about and the video has such a powerful message as well.  Make sure you check out the video right here.The confidence she exudes is so beautiful.  Although she does not look like the typical pop or rock star, she is definitely paving the way for more artists to come.  

The message she is spreading is love yourself now!  She is currently spreading this message to everyone particularly to young people.  Potenza wants them to know it is okay for them to not be a size 4 or 6, but they should still love themselves no matter what.  

When Potenza gets a chance to get some free time, she loves to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race and she is enjoying watching Drop Dead Diva on Netflix.  She is also a fan of playing Pokemon Go.  Since she travels so much, she is getting a bunch of Pokemons that would make some people envious.  

One of the most amazing things about Potenza is her about to make her own clothes!  What do I mean?  She find the products she needs and then she gets to work with a glue gun, feathers, beads, and whatever else she needs to create her product.  For instance, she made the jacket she is wearing on her album cover.  The jacket itself was purchased from Torrid and she added the feathers and shoulder pads.  Crafting is so relaxing to her.  Although she wishes she could do it more often, she enjoys doing it when she can.  

Just recently, she was featured in Rolling Stone as a Top 10 New Artist to Watch.  In the post, it said Potenza is to blues what Adele is to pop!  WOW!  Such an honor for such a wonderful artist, right?  However, this is just the beginning.  

Potenza is so great and inspiring.  She’s reaching out to a new generation of plus-size girls and girls who have to wear glasses at an early age.  It is so wonderful for these young women to have a positive influence to look up to, other than their family members.  

The Plus Diaries are so really looking forward to watching and following the career of Sarah Potenza.  Although she has giving the industry so much, we know she has so much more to go.  Sarah, keep making great music and being an inspiration to millions.  We cannot wait to see what the future holds for you

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
