Yeah, you got some silverware, but really are you eating though?
Are you eating though? Nigga, are you eating though?
Breakfast, lunch and dinner's for beginners, you ain't even know.
Don't be mad cause I'm doing me better than you doing you
Better than you doing you, fuck it, what you gon' do?


If there's one thing I've got is a back bone. I am courageous, brave, and I very rarely back down from a fight. I have it in me to push through even when I feel like I'm at my wits end, I confront fuckery head on, and I always, ALWAYS, stand up for what is right. Most importantly, I'm beyond unafraid and unapologetic whilst doing me. I revel in ALL that is me.

*Cues Effie White from 'Dream Girls- And I'm telling you".*

You, and you, and you, you're gonna love meeeeeee (whether you want to or not), and if you don't...I really don't give a shit. I encourage you all to adopt this way of being, even if it doesn't come easy, just make actual moves towards bettering yourself and honing your tough as nails way of life. Now let's be clear, in no way am I saying that you should be a piece of shit for the sake of "doing you", ain't nobody got time for dat. There IS a such thing as balance, being true to you and being a decent human being are not mutually exclusive. You CAN be both unapologetic; and an awesomely kind, nurturing, free spirited, respectful person. Don't let your ID, EGO, & SUPER EGO get you fucked up in these streets. Consider that a PSA from me to you.

I'm always on the look out for pieces that are done well, that are you unique, that have a twist, and most importantly I'm lookin' for pieces that hit. This flannel-ish top is one of the many I've come across that fit my style criteria. 

I own three awesome AF versions of this plaid top so far (I've featured two of them including this one, there's a third on it's way) and I couldn't be more EXCITE. If you know anything about me you know my fascination with bones (skulls, vertebra, hip bones, etc...) because they're just so beautiful, just genuinely beautiful. If I could incorporate my calcium enriched friends into every look...I would. 

Thanks to some of my old fave shops I am able to acquire pieces like this button down to help me further my "bone collection". Does this sound a bit strange...? LOL. Trust me, I'm not collecting people for their bones in a basement somewhere, I am just truly fascinated by it.....

I've also been looking for the perfect overalls, this my friends is no easy feat. There are a few options out there but I needed to find one that suit my body and was in a color and style that screamed my name. Needless to say....I found it.

This pair overalls was found on Charlotterusse. com. There's a lighter pair of overalls that I'm looking to buy from Charlettle as well, I was even tempted to get a backup of these charcoal colored ones but they're sold out. They're a perfect blend of formfitting, stylish, and comfortable, what more could you want?! There's even another pair that's slightly different that has peaked my interest as well. Get on it!
