This is happening all to often

Once again there is another unarmed black teenager killed at the hands of law enforcement. Once again there are conflicting stories from eye witnesses and law enforcement on what really happened. Once again mothers and fathers are left without answers as to why their child had to be the one taken away. Once again we as a people ask the question why?

These type of situations are happening all too often. Michael Brown lost the right to live. Watching his mother tell the media how hard it was to get him to graduate from high school is heartbreaking. As black people we are all too familar with the blantant and even underlying disrepect we see as a people. It is easy to riot and vandalize but what will that do. I know it is easier for me to say such things since I have never been in the situation of loosing a family as the family of Michael Brown but all the rioting in the world will not bring that loved one back. So what do we do? We play smart. we already know the media will spin the story to sensationalize what they think is important but we as a people need to do the unexpected. Protest but do so peacefully. Ferguson, St. Louis is turning into the riots of the ’60’s. Lets not move back lets move forward!

To the family of Michael Brown, and all those families who have lost their loves ones by the hands of those who have been “trigger happy” my prayers are with you at this time. I hope that the anger and injustice that has been felt will be used in a way that produces real answers because this has to stop.

Color of choice

They say you shouldn’t wear white after labor day…..

Well it seems getting the chance to wear white before then is the next best option. Summer time is in full swing and during this time I have noticed a very noticeable presence for the color white.

What is it about white and the summertime that go hand in hand.

From white dresses to shoes, pants, bags its everywhere!

Blogger inspiration

I have been on and off for sometime with blogging. Keeping up with fresh content on a daily basis can be a tough process. I think I am on a good roll right now with #theeverydaychronicles. I hope this blog can gain a following and provide a level of relate ability that can reach people throughout the world. I am always looking for ways to be inspired to write and connect and I have found a few bloggers to provide some bogging inspiration.

 

Demetria Lucas

 

This NY based author, reality star and life coach has been the foundation for me in how to connect and format from a blogging standpoint. A belle in Brooklyn has been a site that began more as a dating/ everyday life blog and has now turned into a mind of its own. I greatly appreciate the transformation into the brand that it has become today.

Joi Marie & Tiffany Probasco – The FabEmpire

 

I have been following The Fab Empire  blog for some time now and have been able to attend some great events as a result of it. The Fab empire covers the DC, Baltimore, NYC and Boston metropolitan area for social and community events catered to the young black professional.  This is a site that I enjoy because the Editor in chief Joi Marie is a woman that has made a point to cater to people like myself. Not only does she have a day job as a news producer for ABC but she has capitalized on a vision that has grown and continues to grow for a niche group. I am always interested in seeing women create a vision and see it through.

 

I have been fortunate enough to meet Tiffany in person several times at a few social  and community events. I have admired her approach to blogging and staying connected. Overall their following is impressive and continues to keep me motivated in the blogging space.

From one natural to another…

Oh Lupita how I love thee…It has been almost a year and a half since going natural. It has truly been a journey. I have met so many people and learned so much about myself, lets not forget learning how to truly take care of my hair. I recently came across this video clip featuring Oscar winner Lupita Nyongo. Her beauty is undeniable and she is a naturalista! It was only right that I share
