Thanks to my mother, I’ve had women like Marilyn Monroe and Betty Page to look up to since I was a little girl. But now I have questions. Where were all of the brown pin ups for me to look up to? With age I realized that this was no fault of my mothers but the fault of Hollywood, surprise surprise. African American pin up models weren’t favorable or considered charming back in the 1950’s.

As all of you know we’re in the second week of spring and finally starting to get a glimpse of hope on the forecast. This long awaited 60º weather has everybody hype, especially me!
Keeping my mind on the soon to be weather inspired me to put together this outfit. Yes, ironically enough I look like I cliff dived into Ace Ventura’s wardrobe; and it’s safe to say that I am unapologetically ROCKING IT.
Spring is in the air people and it’s time to show up and out regardless of if it’s still 30 degrees out, lol. I’m honestly so ready for warm weather that it’s all I can think about so I figured why not put that energy out into the air?
Good morning beautiful people!
I hope y’all are having a better week than last. I took some time within the last week to many things; grieve, reflect, recoup and sit down with like-minded souls to evaluate what it was we needed to do in order to keep us and others sane for the next four years of the Trump presidency; and we came to the conclusion that we will grieve, reflect and recoup through our art.

So this post is dedicated to the celebration of life, love, and new beginnings. Boy, do I have a bunch to talk about! To start, I decided to switch it up and get new frames, Warby Parker of course. I’m always seen in my Kimball frames by Warby, but you can never get too comfortable, right? I decided on the low-bridge frame, Collis, in Lavender Crystal. I fell head of heels for these frames as soon as I put them on. The frames have a subtle cat-eye and wide fit, which gives my eyes some extra breathing room. For those of you who don’t know, Warby Parker’s optical frames start at $95 INCLUDING the lenses. Yeah, I know… With prices like that, how could you not want to start a new?
I started thinking about this concept of “starting a new” yesterday while playing with my kitten, Nugget. Yes, Nugget lol. We first adopted Nugget in April of this year. My mother (an animal lover & activist) feeds stray cats not too far from my house. It’s practically routine for my mom to get up a little bit earlier to go and feed them before work, but the universe was at work that fateful day in April. Continue reading “Cat Got Your Tongue”
