DEAR BLACK GIRL

Hey little black girl.. Do you know your worth? did anybody ever tell you that you are worth the weight of the earth plus a thousand times more and that the jewels you have should be treasured and stored, stored away till that day that you find your life mate, the one you can share your soul with who will love and cherish you, that someone to grow old with.
Hey little black girl... do you know your worth? do you know that you are the legacy of our people and that it should be hard for others to add up and also become your equal because you are that rose that grew from the crack in the concrete, and the petals from all other roses should be thrown at your feet in celebration of you A queen, I repeat a queen is what you are, you are that brightest shining star you are, the incubation of life, a divine being amongst our people here to bring forth kings and queens to grow up and become your sequel.


Hey little black girl... Do you know your worth? there will be times in life when some man may tell you that you’re not worth what you are but first he will whisper sweet nothings in your ear just to suck you in and once he's got you he will go to enemy from friend and he may say things to crush every fiber of your being and that’s mostly because he won’t want anyone else to have you as a queen. So listen little girl when I tell you your worth, it still stands and you should never let your actions be based off the opinions of a man and don’t worry about the girls who do not know their worth hopefully very soon they will realize their purpose on this earth, You just move along little girl with your head held high, you have the tools and capabilities to be great in this life also little girl peer pressure is a b*tch and you must watch everything you do because behind you it's always a snitch ready to report on your flaws and also your mistakes and will make up rumors that will make your life shake like an earthquake that’s 7.5 on the Richter scale and will have your friends running away like they were jumping bail.
Hey little black girl... I know your worth
I know you are worth a million times more than what you could have ever imagined
and that’s because you are a reflection of me and I am and I raised nothing less than a QUEEN
Saw this poetry online and I fell in love with it. It’s by Anne Lynn

 I was made for the sunny days to be honest, look at all that Melanin already out to slay. Some days you just go out to enjoy nature or just clear your head. Today’s post isn’t actually a style inspired post I just wanted to go to a park, enjoy the scenery and of course take some pictures which eventually ended up here on the blog. I was literally blushing all through as eyes were on me in a good way, some complimented my outfit and fell in love with my new hairstyle.  Minutes later I started taking pictures with some nice Russians and did you notice the newly wedded couple in one of my shoots. That would be me some day, soon eventually. Anyway, do enjoy these wonderful pictures and I hope it puts a smile on your face this week.
Happy New Month! It’s all in God’s hands.
