Lioness...


 You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? 'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells pumping in my living room.  Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high, Still I'll rise.  Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling down like teardrops.  Weakened by my soulful cries.  Does my haughtiness offend you? Don't you take it awful hard 'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines Diggin' in my own back yard.  You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I'll rise.  Does my sexiness upset you? Does it come as a surprise That I dance like I've got diamonds At the meeting of my thighs?.....
Still I rise.............
This is still and will always be one of my favorite poem by the late great Maya Angelou............... So poignant... for today, tomorrow and forever.
Recently Oprah said 'Claim your power. See yourself from a different perspective. look ahead in a new direction.....Take your glory and run!.
I truly believe that in love and life confidence and humility can walk hand in hand............ Know your worth!......... find a balance and embrace it.

Best Seller....


On entering a store with the mind set too ‘browse’….. The store assistant approaches… ‘can I help you ma’am’… ‘no thank you, I am just looking……. I say this whilst fingering a garment that just caught my eye……. She then says ‘that is a beautiful piece’…. What would follow would be one of the biggest mistake that store assistants make….. 9 times out of 10 they will say….. ‘its our best seller’.
Ok so maybe for some people this comment works….. for me?... its an instant turn off…. You have instantly taken away the attraction I had only moments ago…. and now?.... chance’s are I will not buy……. Saying ‘its our biggest seller’, ‘those have gone really well’, ‘that’s our most popular item’…. what I actually ‘hear’ is….’wear this and you will look like everybody else’…. I know things are in mass production… I know it’s not a couture item…. However regardless of that, one would like to feel…. Or at least I would like to feel that regardless of the cost…it is!... I don’t want you to point out any ‘sheep’ factor…. The ‘trend’ factor……. I actually feel like its more of a compliment when someone says ‘where did you find that piece???... its lovely!... other than ‘oh my mother, sister, auntie and best friend all have that jacket. Ok with that said…. There are some pieces that I purchase knowing it will be ‘popular’ ( Jumpsuit below) but I purchase it anyway because the ‘its sooo me’ volume was on high…… But then I put my stamp on it and I make it mine…. I mean that IS really what its all about right??..... I know this… however I still hate the whole ‘its our best seller’ thing… its annoying and off putting and I still don’t understand to this day why sales assistants say it….. surely I can't be the only one that has zero desire to look exactly like everybody else?

Shoulders....


I love the understated sexiness of bare shoulders……
The part of the body that speaks volume…….. Slouched and its perceived as negative…. Pulled back and you exude confidence… Forget the midriff….for me it ‘shouts’….its too loud… The shoulders show a perfect combination of girly and sexiness whilst still remaining chic…….bare just one or both… The whispering of fun but classy….. Off the shoulder has never really had a moment….. a time where its all its own…… maybe that’s what I like about it….. its not trendy at all…. It just ‘is’…….. off the shoulder LBD?..... for me……. It’s a match made in heaven
