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.
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. But, along with helping ourselves, we want to use our creativity to heal the community. Continue reading “Post Election Blues”
So we’ve all heard of the expression “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Well that statement has never held more truth for me til’ this whirlwind of natural phenomenon’s, we’ve all just experienced; Mercury retrograde, the full harvest moon and the first day of fall!
I’ve learned a lot about my power over the course of the past month or so and I can testify that manifestation is real, y’all! This past month has provided us all with lessons in letting go and figuring out what we really want. Trust me, I know Mercury retrograde can be an unusually frustrating time for everyone but it never leaves us empty handed. I tip my hat to my friends out there whose signs are ruled by Mercury; I’m sure your hell was a tad hotter than mine lol. Continue reading “When Life Gives You Lemons”
I had a lucid dream yesterday morning where I had this beautiful happy brown boy with golden curly hair, swinging around in my arms at the beach. We were racing through the sand and I just couldn’t help but laugh as he dragged me to the ocean. I’m talking about that feel good laughter, y’all.
He pulled me all the way to the shore line, let go of my hand and jumped into there nearest ripple of a wave. Everyone around us was smiling and I could feel my heart get warm even though my eyes were closed, it was awesome. There wasn’t a question of who this boy was or why we were at the beach because all of my feelings were genuine when I looked at him. He was the happiest little boy I’ve ever seen and I think he was supposed to be my son lol. Continue reading “Dream State of Mind”
