Breathing New Life Into The Voluptua Project

by M Stagg | The Voluptua Project™

The Voluptua Project – Model: Tracy K.

Greetings Fam!


TVP has been resting dormant for quite a while now. Fortunately, things are turning around, there are people that have my back and will assist in the contribution of material and – well, it’s just time to really set it off and take this thing to the 2.0 stage!



With that mentioned, I’m going to begin recruiting models from Chicago and surrounding cities to reignite TVP. I’ll also be developing a core creative team for this and other projects as my “go to” professionals for shoots, events, etc. If you’re in Chicago, a creative professional and interested in being part of TVP simply fill in the form below. I look forward to hearing from you!

TVP on Indefinite Hold

by M Stagg | The Voluptua Project™

The Voluptua ProjectGreetings TVP Fam!

As of today, The Voluptua Project is on hold indefinitely. I just have too much going on right now and I’d rather come back to it when I can than too continue providing less than stellar posts (from myself) or late posts (not scheduled on time by me).

I do want to thank my contributing writers – Uhuru, Vonda, Raquiyba and Flossie for providing such great articles. I’d also like to thank you, the TVP readers and supporters for sticking with us.

A New Year and New Beginnings for The Voluptua Project

by M Stagg | The Voluptua Project™

choclate-and-curvyGreetings TVP Fam!

I have tons of stuff going on right now so this post will be rather short and sweet…

The Voluptua Project was always – and still is – meant to be a platform for promoting positive plus people, body image and heath and wellness. I have always tired to bring  you content that met or exceeded the mission of TVP.

In the pipeline (for those that are curious) we have the following coming up:

  • TVP Online magazine
  • First Quarterly TVP Meet & Greet
  • TVP Charity Fashion Show

I cannot do it alone however and so, beginning this month, I am actively seeking editors for the blog and community managers for the FB page. We’re ALWAYS seeking writers with a finger on the pulse of the plus community. I mention all this to basically say: If you would like to be part of TVP’s core team I’d love the company! Just visit the Contact page and let me know how you’d like to contribute. Thanks for reading (A BIG thank you to the TVP writing team!) and I hope your year is off to a fantabulous start!

Taking a Short Break

by M Stagg | The Voluptua Project™



Before it gets THIS bad I'm taking a break.

Greetings TVP Fam!

I have some Good News and Not So Good News…


First, the Not So Good News

As some of you may have noticed, the frequency and number of blogs posted have waned a bit. It’s not due to lack of content but rather a lack of time to edit and post on my part. This has been caused by several factors – illness and a job search the two most pressing issues – and I apologize for this. Therefore, as much as I dislike having to do so (especially to the other writers), the TVP blog will be taking a brief two week break to all me to get some things in order on the home front.


The Good News

TVP will be holding another contest over at its Facebook Page! Be sure to head over there for more details on what it is, the prize and how to sign up.

Thank YOU for supporting this blog and I hope you will continue to do so. You better believe it will be worth it in the very near future. 😉
