You are Ugly!

You are Ugly!

As a child born in the ’80s and experiencing elementary school in the ’90s, I’ve heard more than my fair share of the word ugly directed at me from classmates, but I remember even back then thinking to myself, “why do they think I am ugly?” I went to a parochial school consisting of 99.99% of African American children where we all wore a uniform, so although we all dressed a like and we were all relatively neat for the most part, why was I singled out as ugly? It was bad enough that I had to deal with the criticism of having a “weird” name that even the teachers would butcher at times and that I was from a country in Africa so they thought that I swung on trees like Tarzan or had a pet gorilla like Caesar from Planet of the Apes, but to be called ugly on top of that…I always wondered why? Granted, growing up back then in my school there was a inner-racial divide between light skin and dark skin girls. The light skin girls were considered pretty (and if they had silky hair that was an extra feather in their cap), the brown skin girls were considered average, but the dark skin girls were considered ugly for the most part. I specify girls because we were the ones that had to measure up to the melanin barometer. The boys, even at a young age were held to a different standard. The boys just had to be moderately attractive but have a great personality or a little charisma (class clowns or bad boys) and they would...

My Texture is the Best Fur…Faux Fur ;-)

Hey divas & gents, I know that it has a been a while since I did an outfit post for you so here is a quick one… It’s been ridiculously cold here in NYC so this is my basic uniform for dressing warm & chic at the damn same time lol. It’s pretty simple actually. You can pretty much keep everything else simple if you have a fabulous coat! Faux fur has really come a long way so if you don’t have a faux fur coat in your wardrobe right now, then what are you waiting for? It adds instant glamour & warmth to any outfit. Coat- UrbanCode (sold out, but similar here); Scarf & Hat- Asos; Jeans- H&M; Boots- Nine West (similar); Bag-Aldo  How do you stay warm & chic in the...

Happy New Year!!!!!

Happy New Year!!!!!

Hey divas, I just wanted to take a moment to wish all of you a Happy & Prosperous New Year!!! The great thing about a new year is that it represents a new start, a fresh slate, a second chance…which is why many people use January 1st as a date to start anew, but before starting a fresh, I truly believe that certain things have to come to an end and be left behind. 2014 was a somewhat difficult year for me. I battled depression in many areas. Some days were so bad that I basically tried to sleep my way through them. I wouldn’t take a shower for days and just wanted to sleep. I felt like at least if I slept, I wouldn’t feel so sad all the time. The thing with depression is that it doesn’t need a big event to trigger it. It can be something so small and miniscule that when you are in the throws of depression, you are not even sure how you got there in the first place or how to make it out. Believe it or not, it is possible to be depressed for so long that you actually find some sort of comfort in it. Depression is such a sneaky little bastard!…(to get a little religious with some of you, it is an agent of the devil!). The Bible says that the devil comes to steal, kill, & destroy!  The thing that many people that battle depression don’t realize in the midst of it is that it does all 3! 1) It is a THIEF! It steals valuable time...
