Black Beauty

Growing up my mother taught me that being black was a gem. It was part of being formed by God. Kissed by the golden sun.  The combination was unbeatable. I said to myself, If I am going to think black, I will think positive about it. Don’t think down on it, or think it is something in your way. And this way,when you really do want to stretch out, and express how beautiful black is, everybody will hear you. Enjoy the black beauties. Next up on a later post, I will explore this beauty in black men.

Pair This Up City Gurl

Okay here some clues on what to pair to bring out the inner fashionista. I like to call this one a “paint by numbers” to the clueless fashionista. Not a mockery but, a new way to appreciate accessories that rhyme with style. For it is best to create style that will endure than senseless fashion fads that fade away. Plus, they pretty much make you blend into a herd of sheep. I want to be the black sheep of fashion. How about you?
