Black and Beautiful 

This term sometime rattles people… those who are not black… “well aren’t we all beautiful?” Is the question that comes next. This question annoys me because… when has blackness been celebrated? And please don’t bring up Ms. Berry.

Yes, beauty comes in all shades. I see beauty all around me… but let’s be honest. When you saw “beauty” on TV, in the movies, and in magazines it was rare is was someone of color. Which lead many to believe, black isn’t as beautiful. 

If it makes you uncomfortable for a black women to celebrate her beautiful and that of her fellow black beauties you really should attempt to figure out why, especially since we had the most amazing and beautiful First Lady and she was talked about like a dog, yet someone who has a face full of work done is deemed as “stunning”. It’s amazing to me how things such as this can be over looked, ignored , and/or excused.

If my appreciation of the beauty of black, weather it be my black and others black offend you… I give no apology.

High Waisted!

I have a love hate relationship with high waist jeans. It’s hit or miss sometimes.  These jeans right here from Shoedazzle are amazing! Unfortunately they no longer have them but they do have ones similar. I paired them with These yellow heels from @justfab.com and they paired perfect.

I purchased this grey onsie while I was in Cali last year, I wore it for the first time… Here is a similar one. As for my jacket it is one of my favorite and was apart of my boutique about 2 years ago.

Some days you wake up, throw on some makeup, toss your hair, put on some clothing, look in the mirror and completely love yourself… this was one of those days for me. Everything seem to have fallen into place just how I wanted it.
