A Return to Fresh: Everyday Fly


Growing up, I absolutely could not WAIT to get dressed everyday.  I used to lay in bed at night, too excited to sleep, thinking about what I was going to wear the next day.  As a matter of fact, I got a particular thrill out of wearing new things and was ready to grow up, just so I could wear things when I wanted to.  Now, too much real world has crept in, slightly diminishing my original love affair, but I have re-committed myself to bringing that old thing back!! Especially seeing how it is the younger generations have fallen into the full complacency of filth!!  None of them seem to embrace the concept of cleanliness, and FORGET about an outfit making sense!  What ever happened to youthful innovation?!

One of the most fabulous things about being young is the ability to take risks, especially when it comes to getting dressed.  Being original is the Nexus of young ingenuity.  All I had to do was think about an outfit; once I had locked in on one key piece, it basically took on a life of it's own.  Being homebound has made me especially longing for this piece of nostalgia, and desperately want a return to cool.  Remember just getting dressed for fun?!  When did clothes become strictly contingent on the events of life?!  There was a time when walking outside your front door was reason enough to wear a new pair of sneakers.  Now, in this brave new world, we hoard the things we purchase out of a somewhat unsubstantiated fear of the unknown.  Furthermore, due to my mobility being involuntary limited, I have now become subjected to varying degrees of stretch material, mismatched sweats, and a wide array of tees with clever puns; able to express whatever it is I am feeling without having to say a word.  NO MORE DAMN IT!!  I'm taking my right to be free AND fresh back...

I'm going back to that time in my life when NOTHING provided greater joy than a Fresh 2 Def Queen Khira.  It gave my self-confidence the boost I never knew it needed till it was gone.  It is  crucial piece of my identity that simply cannot be allowed to fall to the wayside.  It is my inalienable RIGHT to be my absolute FRESHEST, every single day of my life if I so choose, current circumstances be damned!  I don't know what's wrong with the young people of today, and why they aren't using every opportunity to make money so they can stay fresh; I daresay your priorities are seriously misplaced!  Embrace that yearning to do more with your appearance today, and NEVER look back.~ The Queen

Crystals and Couture

  Those just might be my 2 favorite C words known to man!  With the start of a new year, it's only right I acquire a little bit of both!  I've had my eyes peeled for the past few weeks for all of the best sales; I had my heart set on a new piece of Rainbow Tourmaline and Rose Quartz(see below for crystal properties and uses if you aren't familiar!).  At the same time, I have also been dreaming of some new bags; crossbodys and a satchel, to be specific; a little on the fancy side though.  All of my work was not in vain because guess what?!  Marshall's is now carrying Badgley Mischka handbags and wallets-mike drop...but it gets even BETTER-not one item is priced over $29.99!!  Wait, What?!  Yes Please!!  Amazon has 1 lb of Raw Rainbow Tourmaline AND Rose Quartz for under $15.00.  I also came across a National Geographic Rock Polisher for $39.99!!  Your girl is absolutely THRILLED!!  What crystals do you have your eye on?!  Have you guys come up on any superstar purse deal

Delightfully Disconnected

This idea started in my journal this morning, then I later thought to pose it to the rest of the world...I recently came across an article (linked below the post) on that talked about lucid dreaming.  I no longer believe in coincidence, an took this as a response to the unanswered questions bouncing around in my head about what is actually HAPPENING to my mind and thought process as I grow, evolve, and change.  It broke me down in plain English, and helped me gain much-needed clarity on my current situation... What the article basically said, in a nutshell is that we are never truly awake until/unless we are completely focused, and living in the present moment.  The concepts of past, present, and future are all one construct; all existing right now, simultaneously.  In essence, we are constantly experiencing these things both consciously, and subconsciously.  What we do from day to day, is experienced through a state of Lucid Dreaming; a sort of half conscious

The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es

Today's Inspiration: #1 Stunner...Baby The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es As Our Story Was Previously Unfolding...we were standing in front of an establishment that shall remain nameless, being blinded by some real mess. Per our last conversation, this is where the BKs and I were contemplating just what it took to be Barbie. As we were all adding our respective ideas to the mental list, it was apparent, the Basic rocking the charm, much to our disappointment, we no Barbie. This is where situation turned from nostalgic to pitiful. By no means were we gonna let this masquerade continue,  so as real OGs, we felt at this point, it was time to take action. I couldn't honestly, in good conscience, blame any of the subordinates, none of them were rockin the charm.  To keep this official, let's name the leader of the gaggle Skipper, Barbie's younger teenage sister, who just never quite managed to gain the Barbie fame( still waiting in the wings Tho to seize the throne; Bi***he
