Celebrating a friend's birthday yesterday in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, NY
led me to this wall featuring a piece from
The legendary street artist, Bradley Theodore
Here's his unique interpretation of the fashion supreme superstar: Karl Lagerfeld
In Bradley Theodore's own words:
"Fashion allows People to become Art"
I believe this is a beautiful mantra to add to my daily routine!
I am art! I'll add to it with my take on fashion.
Bradley: Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us! Looking forward to seeing more work very soon!
Sincerely, a student of fashion and art personified-- Queen Es
I've shown you my father's handiwork before..
Well! I presented him with another project!
And as usual: he said Yes!
I wanted to add more positivity to my space by having these two statements displayed.
Since my younger days, my mom introduced me to this scripture
And it has always comforted me!
God has a plan for me!--
The plans are to prosper me & not bring any harm; plans to give me hope & a future.
The other is the title of the world-renowned book.
Now... that Dr. Seuss book is basically life-changing!
(Dramatic? Maybe!.. but for real)
This classic book is usually given to children but
I didn't appreciate the content until I was in my 20's!
I read both the scripture & the book
every now & then for a boost to my confidence!
I bought a canvas plaque 2-pack from Michael's
The markers are from a Sharpie 3-pack (gold, bronze, silver) from Target
and Dad did the rest!
Thanks again Dad! Thanks a million Mom!
Now my palace is beaming with positive reassurance!
Last year, I debuted my natural hair!
My curls were defined but short.
I've still been faithful to protective styling:
weaves, wigs and wraps.
But underneath all that, I'm glad to report:
I've had some growth!
I'm still tempted to cut my hair into a funky new style
but for now,
I'm celebrating my length!
Sunny + Warm-ish + iPhone = Photoshoot! Lol
I was so happy to be out with no jacket!
The calendar said Spring weeks ago, but the weather has been stuck in Winter!
The good news: We're getting warmer... slowly, but Surely!
And I'm loving every increased degree!

about these pix:
They were all taken on my iPhone with my Selfie Stick!
(The Selfie Stick is one of the human race's Top 5 inventions,
second to sliced bread)
Dramatic, yes, but once you get one... you'll know!
'What you tell
Lift you Up
Tear You Down..'
I always start my days with a prayer-- before the phone, or the tv..
I give thanks to God!
Instantly, I feel like my day is off to a great start!
And amidst unexpected encounters,
I'm reminded that the positivity that I put out into the atmosphere will sustain me.
You should try it!
Tell me what helps lift you up!
We're almost there, Royals!
Not that I'm your weather girl, but we're almost in full swing Spring!
We actually hit 60 degrees today in Brooklyn!
