Image is Everything

My first love is writing. What better way of communicating; if only people know how to do more of a two-way communication with better understanding, we wouldn’t be searching for the elusive World Peace.

As an Image and Fashion Consultant, life-stylist, Motivational speaker, Event Marketer and Promoter I meet a lot of people of diverse public, socio-cultural, political , economical, religious and ethnic backgrounds. I am like a sponge that like to soak up everything there is to learn. though ,It never seems like there’s enough time to do so.(You should read my poem Time is Fickle).I have come to the inference that what all people have in common despite their obvious differences, is the need to be accepted, heard and to be treated nicely!

I believe in Love Your Neighbor as Yourself; just doing unto others as you wish to be done to you.

Then, I believe no one can get far successfully in this life without a good Image or reputation. Often, who you say you are is not the same as what people perceive and, this ambiguity can cause serious confusion and sometimes damaging consequences!

I believe there is good publicity vs bad ones. Some insist that “any Publicity is good for Business”! That is a wrong notion, albeit debatable! Yet, everyone is entitled to believing their Truth. How long it shall stand the test, only time will reveal.

Some say “I don’t care what others think about me, it’s my life ,I can do what I want!” Nah! That’s just the Red bull-T talking! When the same people (whom you didn’t care about their opinions) turnaround to embrace and validate you, you become delirious with Happiness.

Appreciation is the grease that smooths the wheel of Happiness.

Bad Fame can lead you to temporary limelight and probably some easy $$ and perhaps millions of social media followers, but eventually prove destructive to your career, Image, health (emotional issues and depression could set in) also, financial setbacks for lawsuits, or failed businesses,from lack of patronage. It can be very costly, and, even affect your loved ones or others who care deeply about you. Most importantly, think about those who look up to you, your Mentees….Do you really want to disappoint?

Here you will also get some free advice and tips on working solutions at the office.

I believe that dressing for success is not a Cliche’! So I will be sharing some fashionable, Beauty and Stylish inspirations,trending news,and treating you to some of my creative writing gifts which includes; Quotes, poems, short stories, book and movie reviews and some Outstanding personality interviews!

I believe anyone can Inspire others to show forth their possible best and, I am willing to Be That Person who calls out your very Best and Lights the way!

SELFMADE :Madame C J Walker

SELFMADE!πŸŽžπŸ“½πŸ“ΊπŸŽ¬TRENDING NOW. Made me understand the  saying” some are called, but few are chosen!”.when you watch you too will understand.
How many have seen this incredible TV series trending on NETFLIX (actually made #1 mosy watched) .

it definitely stirred up some fire inside, making me more determined to go after mine!
Award winning Octavia Spencer (won several Globe ,Screen Actors  and Academy for her numerous supporting roles in The Help and  Hidden Figures)was absolutely awesome as Madame CJ Walker. The series is based on true life story of how Sarah Walker tired of being a clothes washerwoman , decided to sell Addie ‘s (played by Carmen Ejogo, she has a Nigerian Dad and  a Scottish  mom) hairgro products ,but was rudely rebuffed. So, she dared to pursue her dream. However , as in life, obstacles presented:betrayals,  plus  if her hopes of opening a factory or 10 cents stores, she would need endorsement of the Businessmen ,especially  the famous educator Booker T.Washington who didn’t mix words but let her know where “a woman’s place should be”!

Madame Walker overcame through rugged determination , and stubborn resolve , eventually becoming the first black selfmade millionaire; residing in same neighborhood as the wealthy Rockefeller in NYC.
Watch and see how her daughter played by comedian-actress Tiffany Haddish, surprised her when she eventually found her niche πŸ‘. Definitely a five⭐⭐⭐⭐.πŸ†πŸ…πŸ‘ŠπŸ½, and Oscar worthy !
The actors were all astounding,  especially my heart crush Blair Underwood , who was bad, yet I could see how he could have gone down the slippery path, based on the reality of his situation.
Enjoy the flick 🀩

Music legend Kenny Rogers has passed on at 81.

He”decorated my teenage life” Kenny Rogers did. The Country Music Legend passed on at age 81, on March 20th,2020 according to his publicist Keith Hagan’s report to CNN.
I remember how in my teens, I used to hug my pillows at night cooing to songs from radio,of some of my favorites like; ” island in the stream, “Lady “, and “don’t fall in love with a dreamer “, I knew even then, I was a Lady , one who will uphold her standards till the right man showed.

The Music legend , had a laid back, seductive ,yet easy-breezy not brashful singing style. His romantic country songs were an instant hit and popular on international levels. Infact, Rogers won over 5 awards including Three(3) Grammy’s, and a lifetime #1 song on Billboard (which he and his long time fellow artist Dolly Parton collaborated),” Island in the stream”(1983),remained on LIFETIME 100 honor #1 list.Rogers continued working for 6 decades!His music career was so successful he carried on , only retired at age 79 in 2017.
He will be greatly missed. 😌❀
Rest in Peace,KR.and Thank you for everything!

Kenny Rogers Lives forever in our memories.(RIP)

HAYDEN HURST IS A BURST Of FRESH AIR FOR ATL FALCONS.

It’s Official! With the exit of Austin Hooper out as a free Agent, leaving opening slot, FALCONS G.M , Thomas Dimitroff finished trade negotiations with BALTIMORE RAVENS, few days ago, announcing the newest arrival Hayden Hurst to ” Tighten the ends” of the Team”.

How many agree this is an excellent trade for ATL Falcons.⚽️ Though sports is not my forte’ I however had the privilege to listen in, as, an intelligent 26 year old Hurst humbly talkedΒ  on The Game radio 92.9,Β  earlier on March 20th, about how he plans to make a difference and “tighten ends” for the Falcons. He spoke briefly, but candidly, of now being 4 years sober.(Had previous alcohol issues during troubled teens). Also , mentioned was his previous impressive records of 44 passes, 559 yards 3, touchdowns in 2 seasons. 🎯⭐⭐⭐⭐I think this 6’5″ hunk is ready to Play Ball! I believe HURST is truly the needed Burst of Fresh energy required by FALCONS to take to championship.

The 6’5″ footer was a 2018 first round draft pick by the RAVENS after an outstanding career at University of South Carolina. From what I garnered, Hurst’s got talent, skills, depth, right mindset , energy and experience. According to NFL.Com report, He “earned a a 72.4 grade in Pro Football Focus for last years play, and ranked 14th among NFL tight ends.Now if that doesn’t make you excited, I wonder what will. πŸ€©πŸ†πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

ABC Pilot Pete Weaves A Complicated Web of Love!

How many of you think ABC bachelor’s “Pilot Pete”mom Barb Weber is responsible for the breakup to runner up Madison?
I watch episodes of 24 seasons, and there were many dynamicsπŸ‘€. My conclusion is:the mom was definitely a factor, she was way too interfering in her sons quest for a life partner. In the long run he gets to live with his choice. Unfortunately, he fell for the wrong gal πŸ‘§(Madison)who made it clear they” did not have a lot in common”, hence she left, but returned when Harrison went to her hometown, Alabama to talk to her about Pete’s breaking off engagement) to Hannah AnnπŸ’(Weber’s relationship status should now read “it’s complicated”πŸ˜„).
Madison also, refused to address potential mom in-law (Barb) concerns at women tell all, she should have atleast apologized, for being 3 hours late to meet for 1st time.No mom in-law wants to be dissed before even becoming a MRS.
Hannah Anne would have made a doting, perfect wife , but unfortunately, Pete’s love was halfway and not whole heart. she told him off at the “tell all ” to man up,amongst other strongwords. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘! Weber should not have given her the ring despite “reasonable doubts”.

Remember this is the same Pete who made second runner up ,during Bachelorette Hannah Brown’s season last year!,yes the same one she had a rendezvous with, at the windmill three times! yet she picked Jeb Wyatt, and sadly after engagement, discovered Jeb had hidden fact that, he had a girlfriend prior to coming to the show!

Wow, talk about deceit, betrayal, scandals, love, heartbreaks, breakups and makeups πŸ’” 😒 ABC Bachelor and Bachelorette with its twist n turns,weaves and plots is dishing out to nation the kind of love saga we only read about in epic love novels, except this time its life and unfolds in living colors right behind our eyes, ears ,perhaps this loveseekers did not know exactly what they signed up for as millions of fans take on social media to dissect their every action or inaction.

Mondays will never be quite same again.
