To be continued..

Why didn't you hit me back last night?
Was it something I said? Was it something you read?
& I hope this doesn't cause another stupid fight,
because us fussing and cussing over nothing could never make it right,
I scream 'you don't need no one else!'
selfish me, maybe too attached to what I wanted forever,
I didn't even notice the fact that we were slowly but surely detaching,
I just want you, I just want your love & your soul,
Please believe Im fighting with everything in me,
to keep you,
Not only as my lover but as my friend,
Because our connection is so strong,
being anything less than friends just feels so wrong,
I crave your presence, like a kid on Christmas Eve,
So please baby, please,
don't leave me wondering.

2015's color of the year: Marsala

2015's color of the year: Marsala
Marsala is not only the name of my BESTEST friend (Marcella, lol, which I have a funny little story about that...) but it is also 2015's color of the year. Marsala is like a deep shade of red with a hint of brown... Somewhat similar to burgundy but with more pizzazz. Because us ladies are all about pizzazz! This color is PERRRRRFECT for Winter 2015 because the color goes good with all skin tones. Be looking forward to seeing Marsala EVERYWHERE 2015.

-Marsala colored items would also be ideal Christmas gifts for you and the fam... hint, hint!

SN: (Okay, the funny story about Marsala... So I'm in class researching and typing up my trend report for my final in Merchandising Math and my best friend Marcella sends me a text asking what I'm doing... So I'm like nothing typing up this trend report on the popular fall 2014 colors and she responds.. "I'm a 2014 trending color.." right, and as soon as I read the text the next color that popped up was 'Marsala' and I just completely died silently in the middle of class because my friend was actually a trending color... lol. I just thought that was hilarious.)

To All My Women!

Why is it that when women get into their feelings it's such a big deal and we're called emotional and weak... but as soon as a guy gets into his feelings women huddle to them to comfort and nurture them? Why can't men do the same in return? Why does a women have to feel like she's giving 'the extra mile' just to prove her point? Men walk around like they rule the world and everything is supposed to go how they plan? What happened to 50/50? What happened to sharing thoughts and feelings no matter how much you feel humiliated or how much it hurts? Why cant us women be just as stubborn and dominate as men and stand up for our rights without being called crazy or possessive? Why does the man have to be so dominant and controlling and the woman have to stand in the back and just let it happen? Why cant we be different from the last and speak up and speak out?
Us women, we can. No matter the circumstance. Because we have minds that think just as well as men's and we have idea's. We have morals, we have goals, we have plans, we have opinions, and we have the right to express them. Don't be shy or scared... because time is limited and the dumbest thought was the one that was never shared. We are beautiful and Intelligent, remember that, never settle for less. WE ARE ALL QUEENS, no matter what anyone says! We have the same rights as men to speak our minds and dominate the world.

we can & we will.
