The Normal Ones...

So of course every good blogger has these super glam photos posted on their blogs and IG. Like they look like they literally "woke up like this".... So if you know me, the glam thing you know that is a super stretch..
I'm normal at this point in life, I prefer leggings, Jordans and hoodie every chance I get...
I have served my time in the club in 5-6 inch heels with the dresses short enough for my niece to wear.

So when I sat down with my good friend, Chaz about doing photos for my blog I know I was probably every photographers nightmare.

No, like seriously....

She asked about my ideas for my shoot, my visions, and I had nothing.. I mean I'm not a model?
I like cookies too much....My 'sexy face' looks like I have something in my eye,lol


So I did my own make up (scary, I know),
Wore two of my favorite items; a denim shirt from Torrid (that my boobs are apparently too big for), and a tulle skirt from Zellie For She,
And sat in front of the camera...

I sat just as who I am in real life, and what my blog is..
Awkward.
Kinda of a mess,
and slightly odd.







No filters, No crazy hollywood edits....
(Although I did ask for Chaz to photoshop in Teyana Taylor's abs from the 'Fade' video, Im still waiting to hear back on that one)




These photos are just me....And women just like me....
The plain girls who can't draw on their brows to save their life,
The girls who can't 'bake' their face, but can bake a cake....or buy one?
The girls who Netflix and Chill before it became a trend,
The girls who don't have perfect edges or twist out


This is for us... The normal ones

Special THANK YOU to Chaz from Destiny Fulfilled for the photos, and being an amazing friend

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,
