Vlogger Taren Guy , I immediately was engaged. "Damaged" and "unwanted" were just a couple of the labels that she disagrees with. While raising a child alone, is neither glamourous and desired, it's not an indicator of a woman's worth or value. Granted women with children require more from prospective partners, but the standards themselves, are the same as women without children. Faithfulness, selflessness, generosity, compassion, stability, motivated, spiritual and family orientated, aren't just requirements exclusive to one kind of women

While I don't expect an unanimous acceptance of teen mothers, unwed mother's, and single parenting, I do think the more women share complete, honest, and transparent accounts of their pasts and experiences as a women, mother and partners, will the naysayers have a clearer picture and synopsis of the book to then draw an opinion.

Famous, African American celebrities typically modified their appearance, for the acceptance and approval of those in the industry. Industry standards are dictated and dominated by blondes or brunettes, straight hair, or the occasional red head. Not many respected African American celebs step foot in the public eye with their natural hair, especially if it's of a kinkier texture like Oscar nominee, Viola Davis. Listening to the reactions to one of Viola's first public appearances with her natural hair, the buzz was synonymous. She looked radiant, glamourous and a million times better than her typical grandma wigs, that looked far from customized. Although natural hair is far from being a new trend, Viola transcended all of the Beyonce-ish looks that most Black women actresses choose. Big-ups for Viola accepting, and embracing her black beauty. The Academy Awards is her coming-out party, and a new public acceptance to black women and THEIR beauty. Lets see who the next natural celeb will be?
Oh, and before I forget, wasn't she working that green Vera Wang gown? WUURRRRRKK

Nothing makes "mama bear" happier than a brand new pair of shoes. These puppies, are not only comfy, they are some of the baddest booties I own. ShoeMint, yes another subscription club outdid themselves. Collaborating with Steve Madden to customize various shoes with ShoeMint is a great union. Unlike other shoe clubs, the designs, quality , and selection of the shoes makes ShoeMint one of the best shoe subscription clubs that I have been apart of to date. These suede booties are very Jeffery Campbell-like, breathing life back to fashion of the 70's and putting a smile on my face. Let me know how you would style this booties, and I may do an outfit of the day inspired by one of you.

Is this fabulous? Is this a ridiculous cry for attention? Whatever it is, I think that if the individual is confident and self assured, it can be pulled off. Two poplar brands are Secret Kisses and KA'OIR carry colors as daring as white, and green, they are said to both be nice quality. Do I dare? Do you!?

Now there is no need to run to Wal-Mart, or the beauty supply store, your products can now come directly to your home. Subscription based shopping is a new way to indulge in the things you love most. Pomades, conditioners, serums are all things I love to experiment with. Having tight coils and kinks myself, I'm giddy at the thought of discovering products just by opening my mailbox. Kudos to the founder. With all the excitement of natural hair, and curl acceptance, I'm sure a subscription to CurlBox will be a "must try" to many hair care enthusiasts.
