Swiming,Swiming.....

One thing Ive always hated as a preteen before summer was swimsuit shopping for summer camp....The thought of the locker room,boys looking at me in my suit,nasty water screwing up my hair,just made me want to.....

*gag*,but I digress...

Now as an adult,I can shop freely for myself but part of me hates to see women at the pool,beach,etc with tshirts on over their swimsuits,if you have curves,a big butt,large thighs,BE PROUD or don't swim!I mean honestly why put yourself through the stress of purchasing something that is going to make or break your ego for the next 3months if your going to cover it up?

A sports bra,tshirt and bball shorts are so much cheaper and alot less stressful.

I remember one time i went to the beach,a woman who was shapely as I was yet smaller walked up to me,wearing a tshirt,over her swim suit and told me she admired how bold I was to walk around in just my swimsuit.....

I stared at her and said,'why wouldnt i?my body is beautiful,and so is yours....'

I smiled,returned to my beach activites with my family,and saw the woman go back to her towel...Out the corner of my eye I saw her take off the worn family reunion tshirt to revel an amazing swimsuit,and a cute shape!


*Warning* I know my choices are slightly pricey,but you get what you pay for.

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

I kinda did a thing......Nothing major...

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
