More post for HUE!

I am back after taking a small break from blogging. Over the last few months I’ve had A LOT going on (in a good way) that I feel will help me grow this blog in ways that I couldn’t imagined just a few years ago. Yes, I have been  M.I.A. in blogging land, but I have been front and center in the world of social media. My time in the social media universe has opened the flood gates in regards to growing my media voice. I have always wanted this blog to be a celebration of  black women, their style, beauty, and life. In the last few months so many things have happened in world in the black community that reminds me that we still need diversity in training in the world and more now than ever I feel that as a black woman I need to be apart of a movement that showcases positive images of black women. So I will be adding to this blog in great ways.  Mondays with now focus on the image of black women in the media. You may ask why?….uummm because people still think that it is okay to talk about a black woman’s hair

as if she is less than a human….No it wasn’t funny (not even a little bit)- I am a naturalista, and I have never ever come close to using weed….not cool to suggest such things. Also, while while watching the red carpet during award season I saw very few women on color. I mean come on…how many television networks do we have? And no station can find a woman of color with a fashion degree and media experience?  But it is more than fashion or red carpets. Let’s talk about other forms of media….film, television, print, and other forms of media. Why aren’t we seeing more women (and men) of color? I maybe only person but, I will use my voice and this platform to share what main stream media is not. I will speak out, speak up, and speak of positive things that black women are doing.SpeakOut-logo2-darker

….and don’t even get me started on the Oklahoma University issue because I can go on and on about that…so I have something too.

 

There are many other issues that I will address in later blog post but for now I will be adding a media and educational/lifestyle to this blog in addition to the True Beauty Tuesday, Web Window Shopping post.

 

With love from me to Hue,

Sophia

It’s the last shopping Saturday before Christmas and while some of you may be all done with your holiday shopping some have yet to get started. Before you fight the mall traffic check your list and check instagram twice. Several small business have an are on istagram. One  of added benefits of shopping with a small business is the service. While it’s getting down to the wire for shipping items some companies maybe offering special deal for purchasing with them.

Web Window Shopping : Live in Fashion

Welcome to Web Window shopping Wednesday ~say that five times fast :0)

Web Window shopping is all about finding those fashion treasures online. I came across the feature of the day because they liked an picture I posted on my instagram page. ( yup, I check out the pages of those who like my images). I instantly gravitated to the gorgeous Jaguar post earrings on the Live in Fashion website because they make a fashion forward statement while remaining classy. They can easily be matched with a pair of jeans and classic white shirt to add a little flare to traditional weekend look or you can use them to adorn your little black dress when you are out on the town to unleash your inner sexy style.

With a new Spring collection on the way I am sure that you can find something to add to your wardrobe….but I must warn you I will fight you for that clear clutch bag on shown on their instagram page….True story.

With love from me to hue.

Sporting Your Style

Any true  stylista believes  in sportin’ style that is true to her roots and dare I say probably one of the the best times of her life…Yup, I’m talking about the glory days of college. Every March the madness  known as “March Madness” begins. The basketball tournament that offers Cinderella moments for colleges and universities across the U.S. can offer fashion finds for the chic college co-ed and alums alike.

A quick visit to the local campus bookstore (Check out my school)

Alright fashionable one, go sport your style and join the madness.
