Music so beautiful....

I remember those nights back home on Sunday evenings cleaning up and preparing our uniforms for school the following day. Sunday nights were always cool, temperature wise. Sometimes it rained and sometimes the wind ruffled through the trees as my siblings and I bonded in familial love. We will always listen to the "The Quiet Storm" on 93.5 where all the oldies were played and sing along. Music really has the power to tap into your fondest memories and take you to aesthetically beautiful places. For those who know and love this oldie, I am sure you understand ;) For those who do is a great love song!

I wanna take forever tonight: Peter Cetera and Crystal Bernard.

Yep I love soft rock ;)

The Black Man is Aesthetically Beautiful ;)

When I saw these photos from my photographer friend Chris Charles, I had to post them. This guy Marcus really represents what we love about our BlackMen. The chocolate passion with wool locks and strong features. Yep this guy Marcus is definitely my definition of AESTHETICALLY BEAUTIFUL!

Thank you Chris for exquisitely capturing the true essence of the Black Man!

Women please feel free to share your thoughts on what the black man represents ;)


Aesthetically Beautiful Hair!!

Some people just have it naturally!!
My friend Raynna is just one of those beauties who has a full head of soft, curly, natural hair. Now best believe, she must take a while to dry her hair, but hey everything has it pros and cons. I heard she tried Kinky Curly and love the result. So in honor of her love for Kinky Curl I found a video tutorial that is a good demonstration of using the Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave in Conditioner and the Kinky Curly Curling Custard. I am still in the beginning stages of testing this product on my I will keep you posted on that journey and let you know if I like it better than Miss Jessie' is cheaper!! Hello!!

Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave in Conditioner and Kinky Curly Custard Cream (2 step)

Share your experiences using Kinky Curly!


Cute Plus Size Dresses!!

One day, I think I am going to design my own plus size clothing and have real plus size models! However, in the mean time my plus size friends still need to look I will keep searching the internet for cute, reasonably priced finds ;) This site carries sizes 12W to 44W.

Belted Drape Shift $49.99
The key here is not too tight on the lower area....slight A-lines are perfect!
The Knit Statement Dress $34.99
Patterned materials are great for camouflaging. Pick patterns relative to your size and not too bright!
Argenta Printed Dress $44.99
The Empire Waist focuses on your smallest area and the Bell Sleeves d/n hug your arms

Avenue® by Jessica London Glam Goddes $79.99
Great for those smaller on the top! The gold detail draws attention to your chest and face and thus create balance for your lower area. The flare of the dress is just enough (dresses that are too flare make you look bigger than you really are!)
Dress in a Faux Wrap Style $39.99-64.99
The cropped jacket, V-neck and waist band create a perfect silhouette and focus on the right areas for all shapes! Remember not too much volume on your skirts!
Artisan U-Neck Dress $29.99

Ruffle-Front Knit Dress $34.99
Dresses with gather stitching that creates ruffles at the empire waist are great for camouflaging the stomach area. Note: The directional flow of the ruffles will create a triangular silhouette and while camouflaging your stomach will also bring attention to your hips. This style, is especially, great for those who need volume on their lower portion.....but still great for all!

Pintuck Sleeveless Dress $79.99
V-neck lines and waistbands are great for all shapes! The placement of the waistband is very important though! It should focus on the smallest areas of your upper body!!

Carefully handpicked for you ;)

Any questions?

A Beautiful Place ;)

Heard this song on this morning and it took me to an aesthetically beautiful place of comfort and security knowing that He is in control!! Blessed Sunday!

Hope it does the same for you...

Romans chapter 8 and verse 18 says:
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us listen

I asked myself how did he do it?
Make such a sacrifice
And the ones that he loved wanted him crucified oh yea,
He knew that his friends would betray him
And he knew that his blood would be shed
He coulda put someone else in his place but instead he said

Amen mmm I surrender
Amen and my will be yours
Amen i lift my hands and say

So I looked at my tasks and trials they can't compare to his pain
And if he can go through it surely i can do the same
oh Lord, I bless you for all of the bad
And I bless you for all of the good
And the place where I stand you have already stood

Amen never the less Amen
Amen i don't understand but Amen
Amen Lord I surrender
Amen my soul say Amen
Amen this is not about me Lord
Amen oohh i've got your will, oh! oh! Amen

Oh oh, Oh Oh, Oh No!!!

This song really puts everything into perspective ;)
