Style Icon: First Lady, Michelle Obama

Have you ever seen a first lady more classy, more regal, than Michelle Obama? Not only is the woman practically a genius, she is gorge. A lot of people have been obsessed with her style since the first inauguration 4 years ago, but over this past year or so  I have really begun to take notice of how her style is evolving.

While Michelle always looks professional, she often likes to play with color. How beautiful is she in this lavendar number she’s wearing here? Definitely, not anything like the average suit you will find on Capital Hill. I imagine that her wardrobe is full of beautiful hues like this one.

I don’t know about you but I have never looked at any of our previous First Ladies and said to myself, “I would rock that”…Well, once again Mrs. O does not cease to amaze me with these beautiful ball gowns. Showing off those toned shoulders…Her body is looking better than mine! Lol

And have you noticed that homegirl has a bit of a wild side? Every now and then Michelle adds a bit of edge to her wardrobe and I am in love with all of it. Although we are used to seeing her with the “side part-swoosh” hair style, I am really digging her new bangs. I think it makes her look youthful and a tad bit more hip.

BTW, look at how quickly Sasha and Malia are growing up?! I’m sure they will be little fashionistas as well. I hope you enjoyed this post. Talk to you soon! xx

4 More Years! & I’m Back!

Hey folks!! I’ve really missed you all over the past month or so. But before I get into what’s going on with me, I have to say congratulations to our President, Barack Obama for securing another term. Words cannot express how elated I am that Obama will be remaining in office. Cheers to moving FOURward!!

Yesterday was an amazing day for me. Not only because my Prez was re-elected, but also because my thesis was finally approved by my department and uploaded for online publication! I thought that completing the research and the written portion of the thesis was tough but editing the format was just as tedious. I had to go through multiple levels of approvals, and at some points wasn’t sure that I was going to make it.  However, by the grace of God I was able to finish! I received an A- on my thesis, and I will officially be done with school this December (walking across the stage in May 2013)!

In case anyone is interested in the topic of my thesis, it’s entitled Octavia Butler’s Examination of Religious Values and the Human Condition in America. Butler was a black science fiction writer I met while I was studying at Howard University. My thesis focuses on her series she wrote back in the 1990s, Parable of the Sower and Parable of the Talents. Trust, you need to read these books!! She was a visionary and many of the things that she wrote about in her novels are occurring in American today, which is why I found these novels so intriguing…

Anywhoo…While focused on graduating, so many other things have fallen by the wayside so now I am pulling it together and trying to make things happen. I have so much in store for the site and am excited to get back to what I love to do: blogging…Stay tuned for more posts this week and some changes in the near future! God Bless!! XOXO
