FASHION IS ART!

Dressing for your shape is a tricky thing to master even if you’re a straight up and down kind of girl.

Most people assume, dressing for your body shape revolves solely around curvier or pear shaped girls but it includes the apples, the more full busted girls and the boyish shapes too!

This great infographic solves all the confusion with quick and easy questions to answer which lead to an information-packed list of body shapes with all the bits that you should be wearing in order to look your best.

This infographic includes pretty much everything you’d need to know about from skirt lengths to necklines and all the bikinis, dresses and jeans in between.

Whether you’re a boyish shape who wants to add more curves to your shape or an apple and you want to tone down your top half and look more in proportion with your legs, this guide will tell you all you need to know.

Boyish shapes can add curves with on-trend peplum shaped dresses and skirts whereas Apples can balance out their shape with boot cut jeans and high-waisted floaty skirts.

All You Need For Christmas Are These Books

All You Need For Christmas Are These Books

xmas2014This past weekend I was informed that my book, Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt Down, was being plagiarized along with close to 40 other books (some bestsellers) on Amazon by someone named, Jay Cute.

His or her “business” has been shut down thanks to all the complaints, including mine, but I have a hard time selling my own books these days so I wasn’t worried about him or her making a profit. It was actually flattering on some demented level.

  • The Half Series: When Black People Look White – eBook, less than 50 pages, focuses on my experience as a Black woman raising a biracial/mixed child and the colorism that comes along with it. Features commentary on the children of Michael Jackson along with images and interviews with biracial/mixed people as well as fun facts about celebrities you may not know are Black.
  • Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt Down: An anthology that includes six erotic tales of safe sex. Don’t let the subject matter fool you. This book is hot as well as educational.

Both books are under $10! Get ’em for yourself or someone you love.

Welfare Wishes and Watermelon Dreams: Being Poor Isn’t A Crime

Welfare Wishes and Watermelon Dreams: Being Poor Isn’t A Crime

poor-peoples-welfare-vs-rich-peoples-welfare

poor [poo r]

adjective, poorer, poorest.

1.

having little or no money, goods, or other means of support:

a poor family living on welfare.

2.

Law. dependent upon charity or public support.

 

As I’m doing some Back to School shopping at the Salvation Army I find myself in a conversation with an older Black man who after seeing me pull my wallet out to pay for my items says, “I wish I had seen you pull your wallet out before I went to the car to get my money. He’s joking of course, but I tell him, “Nope. You did the right thing by going to get your own money.” We laugh.

A few moments later as I am paying with my debit card in a separate check out lane, he says to me, “I knew I should of had you pay for my stuff!” He’s still joking, but I’m wondering why he’s obsessed with me and this particular joke. I don’t give a damn if we are at the Salvation Army, you can pay for your own shit. I tell him, “I only spent $14. We’re both shopping here so we must be in the same situation.” “What situation is that?” he asks. I reply, “We’re poor.”

That’s when he got even louder. “Oh no! I’m not claiming that! I’m not poor.” I started to tune him out and by this time I was on my way out the store. He’s still going on and on and  as I am walking out, I say, “I am poor. It’s the truth and it’s nothing to be ashamed of.”

I understand his attitude, but I think it stinks and it’s stupid. I hear it all the time – “Stop claiming that you’re poor.” Why? I AM poor! As if saying I’m poor is why I’m poor or as if I start saying I’m rich that my bank account will magically swell up.

I am poor.

I think the real issue is that when people think of poor, they only think of people like this:

poorNo, sweetie. Poor people look like me too! Many of us look like we have our shit together. We are the “working poor”.

Besides, why else would I be shopping at places like the Salvation Army, Goodwill or other various consignment stores if I could afford new clothes? Granted, even if I was living comfortably I would still shop at these places, but not as often as I do now.

I’m one of many. There are millions of poor people in America and all over the world. I don’t know about anyone else, but it was not my dream to grow up and struggle for a living. However, I will not let the stigma of the word “poor” make me feel ashamed of my current situation.

The-Truth-About-America’s-Working-Poor

This week as I was preparing to take my daughter to the dentist, my car would not start. My car, a ’97 Ford Escort, has been giving me the blues for many years by way of draining my wallet of any extra money. I am currently unable to get it up and running which means I cannot work outside of the home at my job as an HIV Testing Counselor and Community Health Advocate for Wellness AIDS Services.

I have created a Go Fund Me campaign and I am asking anyone who is capable or inspired to do so to please donate. Click the highlighted words below for more info. Thanks!
