(SCROLL->>>>) I’m very late to this topic, but if Gucci wanted to have turbans on models so bad, they could’ve hired a Sikh model. My Sikh cousins did not have to deal with ridiculing and prejudice just for these non Sikhs to take this symbol for fashion. The models don’t and will never understand this religious symbol. (Last 3 pics are the Gucci models)

I remember the first time I read this because it hit me on such a personal level; and finding this again tonight was so important.
It's not selfish to give yourself the same love you give to others.
The Queens Brunch has made a committment to self care in the 2018. Every Saturday, we will post self care journal prompts that bring you into the present moment by mindfully reflecting on the end of one week before hopping into the next one. Self care is about creating time and space for our phsyical and psychological health by holding ourselves accountable to practice what we preach. Take care!

In honor of every black woman that fought and died for me and in honor of every black woman alive that's still fighting for me . . . This is for you💜💞💜

is honorable for many reasons, but mainly because she defied all the odds that were stacked up against her! Hollywood says you have to be a size 3 but she said she can be whatever size she wants to be and still make the cut!🙌🏾💯💃🏾She teaches on self love which is one of the biggest hurdles I've had to overcome! That gives her a 10+ in my book!
She made me fall in love with her character in "For Colored Girls" . . . Each time I wanted to get pissed, another scene came about that I could relate to and I made it through the entire movie more than once! 😗 She is wonderful in her current role on Empire!
I love her Confidence and I love how she accepts herself regardless of all the negativity that's been spewed at her time and time again! ***Gabby, You are a Black Girl and You Freakn Rock

Last week I went to the Mojave Desert with friends to check out the lava tubes.
We offroaded 4 miles through the unmarked dirt road until reaching the cave. One visit and your five senses are awakened by the remoteness and solitude. There are a few air openings, where the light cascades so elegantly onto the floor. I spent 2 hours in this cave and it reminded me of the slot canyons in Antelope Canyon.
