Lover of all things art, fashion, photography music, and natural hair. I'm inspired by everything.


“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ~ Coco Chanel

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

You Say, We Say, They Say
You say Black is Beautiful but you diss me on the internet because of my dark toneYou say Black is Beautiful but because I’m light skinned I have less flawsYou say Black is Beautiful but you say I’m pretty… for a dark-skinned girlYou say Black is Beautiful and you put your fist in the air while at the same time beating me downbecause you claim a dark skin woman can take a beating betterYou say Black is Beautiful but you see no problem with those in the media disrespecting dark skinned femalesYou say Black is Beautiful but only if I’m dark enough to be called exoticYou say Black is Beautiful but your actions show that you hate black, and don’t want to be black
You say Black is Beautiful but if I’m light skinned I’ll cheat on youYou say Black is Beautiful but you place yourself as a second-class citizenYou say Black is Beautiful but your negative perceptions mirror those who enslaved usYou say Black is Beautiful but you chose me strictly based on my lighter toneYou say Black is Beautiful but then why does it matter how I wear my hairYou say Black is Beautiful but you don’t know what true beauty isYou say Black is Beautiful but the definition of it is affected by those in the mediaYou say Black is Beautiful but I don’t buy it.
You don’t think you’re beautiful. You don’t think you’re handsome. I don’t know if you think at all.
You don’t have to speak these words for me to know themI was raised by a black mother. A black father. And no, their shade does not matter to me.I guess sometimes I laughAt our people. Our ignorance. Our arrogance.Sometimes it’s better than crying.Words without meaning, you’ve muddied the imageI was told I was beautiful for being meI was told black is beautiful because of our historyI was told black is beautiful because of our struggleI was told black is beautiful because of the legend we as a people embodyI was told black is beautiful for all shadesI was told black defines itself, but never forgets where it came fromI was told a lot of things about being blackEveryone has their own opinions
You say Black is Beautiful?I live it.

What I love the most about these dolls is that the they come in different complexion and hair texture. The doll with the pink bow hair texture look like mines. How many of you had a black doll when you were little?
