Encourage YOURself

Saturday, December 22, 2012

Wrapping up 2012 and starting fresh has never seemed so better. I love a new beginning, a second chance to make what you believe in come true. It’s just brings a new joy feeling to me. Sitting here watching  The Little Black Jacket exhibition by Chanel has open up my eyes and made me want to be more active instead of talk and promises. Someday I will be part of a great movement and part of history. Mark my words.

Style Legend/Muse: Bianca Jagger

Friday, December 21, 2012

Nicaraguan-born Studio 54’s Queen, social & human rights advocate, great friend of the late Andy Warhol and former wife of The Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger. She was also a model and a actress. With her Glamour and inner sassy flavor, Bianca became the jet setter and party goer in the 70’s and early 80’s.
Bianca became an activist when she was involved in a accidental incident in Honduras. She was stationed in a refugee camp and saw some soldiers taken away to be killed, with some others, she screamed  “you will have to kill is all”. After seeing the courage of Bianca and others, the soldiers were let go and so was she with her group.
Too Me, Bianca was another upbeat Audrey Hepburn, a woman with style, courage, and love for others. We need more woman like her in this world. A woman with sazz(sassy & jazz) and class, it does not get better than that. She is one of the ladies that influence me on a daily basis, along with Jada-Pinkett Smith, Beyonce Knowles-Carter, and Josephine Baker. My love for this woman, did not come from her reputation, but from her style and grace. You have to appreciate the one’s who you see a little bit of yourself in.

“Mirrors” -  Jhené Aiko

It’s nothing like a dark love affair that involves self examination.  Jhené gives that through her story, the harmony, melody, and lyrics words go perfect together. She portrays the Black Swan, good verses evil. Innocent that turns dark. Reevaluating herself and wondering if her old self can keep up with the new. Listen to the song and watch how everything flows together. And ask yourself, “Am I, my worst critic or enemy? Will I be myself no matter what comes my way? Will I always stay true to myself?”.
