BUST MAGAZINE: SOLANGE KNOWLES

solange cover

Our favorite style icon and emerging music icon is another beauty who has been on our radars lately and rightly so. Feminists-centered BUST Magazine has featured the fantabulous Solange Knowles on the cover and inside the pages of their April-May 2017 issue of the magazine wearing some of the styles, we love to see Solange wearing accompanied by a thought-provoking interview.

Available on newsstands, March 28, 2017.

ALLURE Magazine: Beauty is Diverse


The April 2017 issue of Allure features three models on the cover...three models...no celebrities!!! Hallelujah!!! 








"Our skin is so much more than a reflection in the mirror. Our skin is the metaphor that defines how we’re seen—and how we see ourselves. 41 women of color to tell the story of their lives through their skin—and skin tone. Because our skin can be both a vulnerability and a defense. But most importantly, it can be a source of celebration. " ~via @allure



Models Janiece Dilone, Aamito Lagum and Imaan Hammam make for a stunning cover featuring our diverse skin tones. 




Shout out to my girl Tiffany of the fabulous blog "Beauty is Diverse" for being an inspiration to so many women when it comes to highlighting the beauty and style of various models and women of color. 


Take a hint Essence, VOGUE, Harper's Bazaar, etc...I'm (I think we all are) sick of the celebrity covers! If magazine publishers want to know why their sales are so low, here's your answer...we don't care for the celebrity covers unless they feature someone we like and they can't be repetitive covers of the same celebrity every three months. 


The best thing they can do is to feature diverse models on the covers of their magazines with accompanying editorials and their magazine sells just might pick up.

A Revolutionary Love: Rog and Bee Walker For ESSENCE February 2017

"Talk about a Revolutionary Love!"

I’m just now getting around to reading the February 2017 issue of Essence magazine online and this editorial featuring some of my favorite creatives, Rog and Bee Walker made me stop in my tracks. 
I went to Jamaica and other Caribbean nations in May of last year and I had an epiphany whereas I have no desire to read any mainstream magazines anymore. I didn't want to buy any of the paper ones and I couldn't even muster up the strength to look at the ones I subscribe to online.


With all of our beauty and style being positively presented online ( these two are a part of that revolution) on various platforms, I don’t even need to read or see anything they’re saying or talking about. The aesthetics alone are enough for me.

Congratulations Serena!!

Loved-up: Serena Williams, 35, stepped out in style with her new fiance Alexis Ohanian as they welcomed 2017 in Auckland, New Zealand


I want to congratulate Serena Williams on her engagement. The tennis star is engaged to Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, and some folks are deep into their feelings over her engagement. The Notep's and Neverloutionaries are pissed because they think they have lost another prominent black woman in their eyes. Who she marries is none of our business. 

The Notep's and their handmaidens have pointed out that Reddit is supposedly a haven for racists, what they failed to point out is that racists are prominent on every platform on the internet, so be truthful with your lies, agendas and propaganda. I believe in all women exercising their options by dating and marrying men who love, respect, honor, provide, protect, build and value them regardless of who they are and avoid those who don't.

Do you Serena and eff the idiots!!!
