Meditation Music: All Of Me

This is such a beautiful song. I listen to it frequently and have probably posted it before. Enjoy it anyway. LOL.

“All Of Me”

[Verse 1:]
What would I do without your smart mouth
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
Got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

[Bridge:]
My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus:]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

[Verse 2:]
How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you

[Bridge:]
My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus:]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it’s hard

[Chorus:]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

Black is Beautiful

As I was perusing Instagram, I stumbled upon this magnificence. I am a fan of @mayasworld, especially due to the fact that my daughters watched her YouTube vids and started their journey–on their own. That said, this picture is absolutely amazing and I love EVERYTHING about it. Just goes to show that black is beautiful–through and through. By the way, I’m hoping the fashion gods will add that coat and shoes to my wardrobe.

Clearly, this is my Fabulous Friday Find. Stay tuned for more fabulousness. Until next time…

Celebration of Me

How many times have I looked at forms of print/media and saw nothing that reminded me of me? How many times have I read the beauty section of mainstream magazines and realized halfway through that this advice doesn’t apply to me? Even in 2012 there is still a obvious imbalance. However, there is hope. Women of color and their beauty is beginning to be celebrated and/or embraced. Finally!!!! (There are some companies that have since jumped on the bandwagon. Oh! Now black is beautiful??? Pshhhhh!!!). Our images are now being fused into the beauty industry and instead of dwelling on the reasons I am delighted to know that at least we are being recognized. There are so many products and options to explore. I am having such a wonderful love affair with my hair. I am. I especially enjoy the fact that my daughters can be proud of their heritage and the differences that make them unique. To those who think that all African American have the same hair and that we enjoy your attempts at touching our hair in an experimental fashion…YOU’RE WRONG!!! I have 3 daughters and none of them have hair that has the same characteristics. I treat each one of their personalities differently and the same applies to each head of beautiful hair. They are beautiful.

With that being said, would you like to join the celebration?
