Everyone is having babies….now I am finally having mine. This labor endured many years of soul searching and introspection. It feels remarkable to have a platform to grow as an artist, uplift others, and look fabulous in the process. Many thanks to photographer @romerpedron, my nephew Marquis for the lovely logo, and @nahgeeisn for the website! Infinite love to those who have supported thus far. Please check out Thread of Thought for my latest post at www.TheEmpressofStyle.com. More work soon to come! #IndieDesigner #Entrepreneur #Stylist #Artist #Empress #Fashion #Blogger #Poet #Empowerment #NewChapter #Sequins #Jewelry #Locs #Consciousness #Hair

Always in tune and right on time…..

I stumbled across his music a few days ago and I am highly elated about the release of his upcoming EP in August 25th which I learned by following afropunk via Facebook. I suggest you follow them to stay abreast of the upcoming festival in August featuring the phenomenal Valerie June and Meshell Ndegeocello. Hopefully, I can get the weekend off working these theater hours. But I digress…..

Benjamin Clementine bears the fruit of his soul on this single, Condolence

The sweet sounds of #BobbyMcFerrin and #EsperanzaSpalding on #SpiritYouAll album got my day off on the right foot. Mellow me out before dealing with 20 actors on a 2 show day. Blessed to have watched him live with #WyntonMarsalis and my brothers of the JALCO. Check them out on tour. #fashionforthespirit #styleyoursoul #MusicIsTheThreadofLife #eyewear #naturalsista #beautifulpeople #naturalhair #styleicon #songwriter #musician #poet

Cocoa Dreams. Sounds as marvelous as he looks. This English sensation caught my ear on my #lauramvula radio playlist. Googled #BenjaminClementine & discovered this prince is the only artist to have performed live for a fashion show. He recently did so for #BurberryProrsum SS2015 #menswear collection.  Of course exquisite design has impeccable taste.  #MusicIsTheThreadofLife #fashion #style #model #spirit #ghanaian #hearthrob #ChristopherBailey #Singer #songwriter #musician #poet #NinaSimone #PaulMcCartney #London

"If you send up a weather vane or put your thumb up in the air every time you want to do something different,  to find out what people are going to think about it,  you’re going to limit yourself. That’s a very strange way to live." -Jessye Norman #opera #icon #diva #MusicIsTheThreadofLife #Singer #music #trailblazers #FridayMantra
