Truth . . .

Hey .. I been really just getting my thoughts and feelings together & things; & I finally get to share it with you. Well I want to share it with you. I wrote this tonight. It took me a few days to dig deep down & figure out this feeling called LOVE; I been expressing. So here it is; this will be the only time I do this. The rest stays in the journal. I shared it first on my Tumblr, so I hope you can relate !
The Crown Awaits

Who Run The World …

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Is a writer from Nigeria; When I first heard this, it was on a song call “***Flawless “; from Beyonce new self title album “Beyonce”.

“We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller.We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much.
You should aim to be successful,but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important.
Now marriage can be a source of
joy and love and mutual support.
But why do we teach to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are. Feminist: the person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.”

Pinspiration: Shades Of Grey!

Your Style Journey

Hi everyone!  As usual I was on Pinterest for over an hour this evening looking  at everything from home decor to handbags. I got sidetracked with cute grey nails and thought I’d share my favorites with you. I love rocking grey nails year round but especially in the Fall/Winter-  It just goes so well with black and burgundy which are colors I wear quite often during the cooler months.

From shiny to matte to french tipped here is some Pinspiration below!
