Never Apologize For Who You Are!

I am peculiar, I am particular about what I do, and with whom I do it. I don’t leave things to chance, I plan the hell out of everything, I don’t practice lying, I don’t pretend to be someone I am not. I don’t do things the way everyone else does it. I am reserved but I have a very strong personality, I don’t sway easily, when I make a choice or a decision I stick with it, come hell or high water – some persons think I shouldn’t be the way I am.

It hurts to know that people want you to change, it hurts to know that you are not accepted for the person you truly are. Honestly, sometimes I find myself wanting to modify my personality to be liked by people who think I am too this, or too that. Sometimes I find myself wanting to fit in and be like everyone else; after all it is innate human nature to be accepted and liked by one’s peers…but, I was reminded of something, never EVER let anyone dictate who you are or who you choose to be.

The little things that make up your character are that way for a reason, God made you the way He wanted. If he wanted all of us to be the same, he wouldn’t have made us so differently. I realized that the people who want you to change are the same people who wished they were like you. They wish they were as calm, collected and fabulous as you are. I was reminded that I should always be strong and proud of the person I am, I have to accept myself whether or not anyone else does. People will be people; people will talk and criticize, whether you do bad or good! You start to lose yourself the moment you give those persons power, the moment you start to entertain people’s opinion of you.

Be who you are… to hell with everyone else!

 

Hope you Enjoyed 🙂

Song of the Week You & I (Nobody In The World) by John Legend

OMG! This is such a beautiful song, it brought me to tears. I never thought that John could sing a more beautiful song than ‘All of Me’, but he blew it out of the water with You & I (Nobody In The World). It is a beautiful song that celebrates love in its purest form, having someone you love regardless of how they look or how imperfect they are. It also celebrates the woman, her flaws and imperfections. It reminds women that no matter how not cute or damaged or flawed you think you are, you are special and you mean the world to someone.

Listen to this song if you want a pick-me-up or you just want to hear the beautiful, melodious voice of the handsome John Legend, either way, you can’t go wrong.

Without further ado, here is a very beautiful song, and my new favorite, You & I (Nobody In The World).

 

Hope You Enjoyed 🙂

Song of the Week Kiss by Prince

I love Prince, he has a certain kinda conviction that only a few persons can pull off. He is very interesting,…to say the least. He has a way about him…I mean, he wore heels and skinnies and he is not gay! …He is very talented and is the man behind a lot of my favorite songs. I am very intrigued by him and his obsession with purple, it is a nice color, but I don’t get it!… I guess I never will!

The song kiss has an epic video, it leaves nothing to the imagination and his abs, is just…ahhh…and that tank top…He pulled it off! The song, underneath his high pitch voice, is a very sexy song. It is the song you listen to when you just want to get in that head space, 😉 or when you want to be reminded that you don’t have to be a particular person, to be a particular person. The song is sexy, but it has an underlying meaning that I can relate to…be you, whatever that you is! And to never be afraid to get your inner self out, as long as you ‘act your age, and not your shoe size’ 🙂 …

Many persons are not familiar with Prince and his body of work, this is your chance to change that… Here is the unforgettable…Prince! (*singing* ‘You don’t have to be cool to rule my world’…)

You are welcome! 🙂

 

The Sheath Dress

The Sheath dress is a type of dress that’s closely fitted to the body, its name is derived from its fit and silhouette. It is relatively unadorned, it usually fall on the knees or lower thighs. It has a straight, simple silhouette, defined waist and a skirt that fits snugly-either straight or pencil. A sheath dress elongates the body and suits just about every body type. It is very versatile and can be worn just about anywhere.

 This type of dress gives the wearer an elegant lady like look that is hard to mimic with other types of dresses. Michelle Obama and Jackie Kennedy Onassis is/were avid sheath dress wearers. They’re able to wear this type of dress to any event and never look dull or repetitive.

 A sheath, because it can be worn year-round, is a practical item to have in your wardrobe. A solid or multicolored sheath is perfect for the office, a business dinner, or even church. A lower cut more risqué sheath can be worn on a date, a girl’s night out, dinner with friends, or a banquet etc.

Here are a few ways to wear your sheath dress.

Layered

 

Sheath Dress w Blazer

A sheath dress is a perfect platform with which you can explore your fashion skills. A sheath layered with a blazer transforms your simple dress into a chic, stylish outfit. Layering should not be limited to blazers, explore, add a scarf or a cardigan to breathe new life into your sheath.

Belted

 

Belted Sheath

Adding a belt to any dress instantaneously transforms it. Belting ads definition and brings attention to and accentuate the waist giving the wearer the illusion of having the enviable hour glass silhouette.

 With Statement Shoe

 

Sheath with Statment Shoe

Any outfit can be made better with a statement shoe. A statement shoe is the focal point of the outfit, it should stand out, as such, other accessories should be mild and understated. A statement shoe gives the sheath dress a more edgy, glamorous look.

Printed

 

Printed Sheath

A printed sheath dress suits any body type, as it is perfect for disguising any problem area(s). When selecting a print, ensure that it is not too busy or over crowed. The accessories with which you pair this sheath, should be understated or non-existent. The dress should be the focal point, adding too much of or the wrong accessories my cause the outfit to look frumpy or way too busy.

With Bold Accessories

 

Sheath With Bright Accesories

As stated earlier, a sheath is a perfect canvas (because of its design and silhouette), as such a simple sheath, can be paired with bright bold accessories to add dimension and character to your outfit. It is advised that you choose a complimentary color or colors that enhance the dress instead of creating a messy tragedy.

However you decide to wear your Sheath, have fun with it!

Song of the Week: I Can by Nas

Life, Life….Life is so hard, depressing, sad, difficult, unfair, unbearable and all the other terrible adjectives that escapes me right now….Life is well, life,… it is a roller coaster, it has ups and downs, phenomenal highs and depressing, dark lows. Maneuvering the day to day activities and responsibilities of life can be a lot, at times its feels like all the little things are going to strangle me to death, but, alas,..I am pressing on!

Being able to rise above depressing lows is an enormous feet, but listening to songs like “I Can” gets me moving. This song is very motivational, and perfectly suited for the low times. It makes you feel as if you are bigger than your problems and no matter what, I can, I can achieve anything if I work hard at it…

So, if you are feeling down, depressed and have lost your will to fight, hold on for four more minutes and listen to this song, it will get you right back on your feet and ready to fight again….

….Hands in the air,…sing!….”I Know I can, be what I wanna be, if I work hard on it, I’ll be where I wanna be”!

Hope you enjoyed 🙂 ….Selah!

Be Inspired: In and Out of Time by Maya Angelou

I just learned that the most phenomenal teacher, activist and poet has passed. Maya Angelou passed away at the age of 86. She was a woman with an enormous legacy, my heart goes out to her family. My heart is broken!….there will never be another like her!… RIP Maya Angelou.

Simply Marvia

Is there someone in your live that means the world to? Is there someone you love more than anything? Is there someone  you want to tell exactly how you feel but cannot find the words?…Not to worry, Maya Angelou sums it up perfectly with this poem….

…dedicated to you – A.D.B…

The sun has come.
The mist has gone.
We see in the distance…
our long way home.
I was always yours to have.
You were always mine.
We have loved each other in and out of time.

When the first stone looked up at the blazing sun
and the first tree struggled up from the forest floor
I had always loved you more.
You freed your braids…
gave your hair to the breeze.
It hummed like a hive of honey bees.
I reached in the mass for the sweet honey comb there….
Mmmm…God how I love your hair.

You…
