BLACK

Cherish Me
I sprang up from mother earth
She clothed me in her own colors
I was nourished by father sun
He glazed the pottery of my skin
I am beautiful by design
The pattern of the night in my hair
The pattern of music in my rhythm
As you would cherish a thing of beauty
Cherish me.
by Joyce Carol Thomas

What you can’t see in these photos was the pain inside from life’s unexpected curve-balls but that’s life, no matter what we’ve got to push through. I’ve been here before and I know it only gets better. My pain had purpose and I’m determined, passionate, and will continue to pursue what’s meant for me. Sometimes some of our greatest work comes from broken places and broken moments. Allow yourself to live in it and feel every emotion in that moment because it’s momentary not a life sentence.

Moroccan Magic

Take me to Morocco and let me lay by the water side being kissed by the suns rays. That would be the life but back to reality. The reality is at this moment I can’t get to Morocco just yet, at least my lips can.

For the past few months I’ve been using my favorite chap-stick “Moroccan Magic” and baby it’s magic.

My lips are coated in moisturized goodness and left as supple as a baby’s bottom.

Moroccan Magic is an organic lip balm formula used with the highest grade or organic cold pressed Moroccan agran oil, essential oils, and herbs.

This is one lip balm I never leave home without and neither should you.

Be sure to grab your Moroccan Magic and be whisked away one kiss at a time……

Teeth Whitening For Sensitive Teeth

I’ve always been a bit self-conscious about my smile until recently. For one my teeth are slightly crooked on the bottom and two they aren’t a natural white color. I mean hey everyone wants white teeth right!!?  As much as I love smiling, taking pics, and posting I have my reservations. I’ve come to push past my insecurities and just smile.
