Christmas is just around the corner…are you ready for the most festive time of the year? I look forward to creating precious moments with family & friends, resting & relaxing, eating & drinking and celebrating baby Jesus. What are you excited about?
Here’s a video of me having fun and showing off my skills (lol), all to wish you Happy Holidays!!!
On Wednesday July 16, 2014, the Nokia Theatre (Los Angeles) hosted the 2014 ESPY Awards, an annual ceremony presented by ESPN to recognize athletic achievement as well as other sports-related performance.
It was definitely a night of style, laughs and empowering moments. First, let’s talk style!
You fix your makeup just so
Guess you don’t know that you’re beautiful
Try on every dress that you own
You were fine in my eyes a half hour ago
If your mirror won’t
Make it any clearer I’ll
Be the one to let you know
Out of all of the girls
You’re my one and only girl
Ain’t nobody in the world tonight
All of the stars
You make them shine like they were ours
Ain’t nobody in he world
But you…and I
Such profound words from John Legend’s latest single You & I (Nobody In The World)from his album ‘Love In The Future’.
When I first heard this song, I immediately fell in love with the powerful lyrics but it was the music video that really did it for me (icing on the cake for sure!). I couldn’t help but get teary while watching everyday women of all colours, shapes and sizes looking themselves in the mirror and reflecting on their body image and how they view themselves daily. It was such a powerful yet touching look of today’s reality and better yet, a positive message for all daughters, sisters, mothers and wives out there. It was more than what I envisioned.
Play this song for yourself today. Make the lyrics about you. You don’t need makeup to validate your beauty…You don’t need a mirror to determine your allure…Know that you are beautiful!
