Yellow Crush | Spring Forward

beautiful-yellow-shirt

With everything going on in the world today, I thought I would bring this little burst of color to brighten up your day. I don’t know about you, but I’m more than ready for colors. Winter style is fabulous and all, but there’s nothing like making that Winter-to-Spring transition. The days get longer, the clothing gets a little lighter and the styles gets brighter. What else can we ask for?

As much as I want to keep this post about Spring style, it will be hypocritical and insensitive not to talk about the Coronavirus pandemic that the world is facing. It’s been difficult to find that balance between real life and escapism. I want to address the issues that affect us all, but also maintain some degree of normalcy and decorum.

That been said, none of us is really in control of this unfortunate situation, but my faith has allowed me and my family to surrender everything to God and to lean on Him. It’s fair to say that this pandemic is affecting all of us one way or another, but we must all remain calm, take precautionary measures and keep our peace through it all… and most importantly, know that in the end, everything will work itself out.

The main message here is to not be fearful or anxious, but to keep praying and practicing mental positivity daily. I believe we will get through this; and I’m sending a prayer and positive thoughts to anyone that needs it.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, through prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7

Now, back to this Winter-to-Spring transitional outfit. Do we like it? Share your thoughts with me. I’m taking this time of international pandemic and quarantine situation to prioritize certains things in my life, and practice more self-consciousness. Expect to see more blog posts, and in the meantime, subscribe to my newsletter to stay in the loop, and get your read on.

Hey Brown Girl, you’re beautiful!

c/o @thepainter @nikiaphoenix

As a brown woman, and mother of 3 brown girls, I want to encourage every brown girl or brown woman seeing this post, to embrace their true genuine beauty. Black is beautiful; and we come in all shades of black, different type of hair, curly, kinky, nappy, locs, short, long etc.

Full post HERE

Whether you choose to wear your hair in its natural state or not, short or long, in protective styles, braided or weaved, we are all beautiful.

Full post HERE

Be confident in your skin and do not apologize for who you are; and if you need any reminder of how beautiful you are, here’s one for you: The world has crowned a black African woman – who chose to wear her nappy short hair on this crucial occasion – the most beautiful woman in the Universe. This is an extremely powerful and incredible moment curved in history forever; and we ought to be proud!

Full post HERE

Let us all congratulate Zozibini Tunzi, Miss Universe 2019 for this incredible win! Her beauty was undeniable but she also gave one of the most beautiful and powerful answers… Teaching our girls about leadership, and encouraging them to take up space in the world is very important.

A shout out also goes to Miss USA, Miss America, Miss Teen who, for the first time in history, are all BLACK WOMEN!

Miss Universe 2019 | Embrace Your True Genuine Beauty

Last night, Zozibini Tunzi, Miss South Africa was crowned Miss Universe 2019! What an extremely powerful moment curved in history forever!

“Tonight a door was opened and I could not be more grateful to have been the one to have walked through it.” – Zozibini Tunzi

Miss-Universe-2019-Miss-South Africa

Opportunities will arise, and sometimes it’s just a crack in the door. The door may not be fully open for you to walk through, but I encourage you to put your foot in that opening, dig your nails into the door, pull it open and take up space and let them know that you have arrived and do not apologize for it!

It’s beautiful and powerful to see a brown girl from Africa, wearing her natural short hair be crowned among so many other beautiful ladies, miss universe. This is such a great reminder that Black Is Beautiful; and that we must embrace our true genuine beauty.

“I think the most important thing we should be teaching young girls today is leadership. It’s something that has been lacking in young girls and women for a very long time, not because we don’t want to, but because of what society has labeled women to be. I think we are the most powerful beings in the world and we should be given every opportunity,” she answered. (@cnn)

Zozibini is here to remind us that when doors open, even slightly, kick them in and take up space!

What doors are you busting through in 2020?

Love & Light,

Stripes and Blue

Happy Tuesday Lovelies,

It’s been a minute, but I hope you beautiful people are doing just wonderful! Now that Summer is in full effect, the sleeveless maxis are out and you all know that I have fallen in love with stripes over the years and this striped maxi dress had to make its way to my closet; and if you didn’t know or maybe if you’re new here, blue is one of my favorite colors and I love this combination. Striped and blue is a perfect Summer combination and paired with this clear and white Vince Camuto summer bag, I was ready for brunch and then out on a boat ride. – I hope you like it. Stay cool out there!

Made specifically for your period, the new Summer’s Eve® FreshCycle™ line keeps me feeling fresh during my period and beyond!
