Prince has died and it hurts so bad, especially when that person is closer to you in age and you start questioning your own mortality. It's particularly frightening when many artists from the soundtrack of my life are dying and it feels like life is moving fast-forward.

I'm so glad I had the opportunity to hear and see him perform at The Essence Music Festival and I will never forget that night. The Superdome was glowing in purple, looking like a purple flying saucer and he asked all of us to dress in purple to commemorate that night. Prince was the ultimate performer and the crowd went wild as he performed his classic hits. 

Death is inevitable and all of us will experience it one day, so live your life to the fullest. Stop wasting the best years of your life with people who deduct from your lives and stop worrying about people who hate you. Live unapologetically!!


Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
2 get through this thing called life…
I thank Prince for the great music and the wonderful memories and may his soul rest in power. His music legacy will live on forever.

ONE TREND TWO WAYS: Takenya "TK Wonder" Quann and Cipriana Quann For Cosmopolitan Magazine May 2016

Just when I thought I should cancel my subscription to Next Issue Digital Magazines, Cosmo comes out with this fab editorial featuring the stylish Quann sisters, aka Takenya "TK Wonder" Quann and Cipriana Quann of the Urban Bush Babes Blog.

I might keep my subscription after all if the magazines continue featuring African descendant women and other WOC in their editorials. I don't know about that damn Harper's Bazaar, though because they hardly ever featuring anyone worth seeing. They haven't been the same since the Liz Tilberis years and I don't even see how they stay afloat. Enjoy!

Model Noémie Abigaïl for L'OFFICIEL PARIS APRIL 2016

I'm loving all of the editorials featuring Afro hairstyles in all sizes and shapes and this time L'Officiel Paris presents readers with a menswear inspired editorial. Photographer Nik Hartley captured model Noémie Abigaïl perfectly.  Stylist Vanessa Cocchiaro retained her femininity with just the perfect hint of masculinity and I love every last look!
