Hi guys!

I've decided to make the jump from my Onsugar family to the Blogger family, it honestly just makes more sense to move over to blogger considering all of the other blogs I follow as well as my email account being with gmail are all google related. I'm hoping you guys will check me out on Blogger http://hiimperfectlyimperfect.blogspot.com/

 

Thanks for the support and continued support (fingers crossed)

My Thoughts: Shielding Your Energy

By La Toya Gamble · October 31, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

This may sound crazy for people who don't believe in what I'm about to say, but about ten years ago I was walking through the subway station here in Philadelphia when a peculiar looking woman walked up to me and touch my arm, she looked at me and said "You have such a bright and radiant aura, your energy is sooo bright. Protect your aura and shield it from people who may try to take your light from you". Her words were confusing and odd to say the least given I was about 21 or 22, she just sounded like a crazy woman to me and as quickly as she approached me and said those words she walked away just as quickly.

The funny thing is back then those words didn't mean anything to me, fast forward 10 years later and those words mean every thing to me. What do I mean? Have you ever found yourself in the company of a person you may or may not know and all of a sudden you feel this really nasty almost evil feeling? Typically those types of people aren't "evil" so to speak but they do harbor a lot of negative energy within them and that energy can and will attach itself to you if you allow it. Those people will give off their negative energy and in turn take what ever positive energy you have and leave you feeling drained and disgusted after your encounter. How do I know this?

There have been occasions in my life where being in the presence of certain people have made me feel so bad that I just needed to take a step back and center myself, because I knew that the feelings going through me weren't mine. Our bodies are receptors and we emit/transmit energy whether that energy be good, bad or indifferent. It's up to us to "shield" or protect our energy especially in the case of positive energy.

Madame Noire: Natural Hair Misconceptions

By La Toya Gamble · October 25, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

1. We like neo-soul and jazz
Not every woman rocking a ‘fro is riding to Bilal and Amel Larrieux. Plenty are just as into mainstream music as “the Barbz” (aka Nicki Minaj’s legion of followers). It’s hair not a school of thought.

2. We are vegetarians or vegans
Many women go natural in search of healthier hair; and, while it often translates into a raised level of consciousness regarding food, most aren’t forsaking juicy steaks and Oreo milkshakes.

3. We are “free” spirits
Every woman with natural hair is not a tree-hugging, weed-smoking hippie. We are not walking barefoot with holey boyfriend jeans at peace rallies. Lots of us are typical business casual folks working the corporate nine to five.

4. We are political
There is no correlation between hair and politics. So, please refrain from asking the next black woman you meet with natural hair if she plans to “occupy” her city.

5. We are hipsters
Wearing kinky and curly coifs isn’t just for indie, vintage cool kids anymore. All sorts of fashionistas, stay-at-home moms and executives are spreading their wild locks. Modern styles and new products have made it easier for women to create professional looks.

6. We are fighting the power
Obviously, women who choose to wear their hair in a way that doesn’t conform to European standards of beauty display a degree of pride. But, it does not mean you are going to see them walking around in Panther-face, marching with Al Sharpton or reciting Angela Davis

7. We are lesbians
This is inaccurate on so many levels.

8. We are urban
The term urban refers to inner-city, cosmopolitan living. That is not where all natural sisters live. Many live in the suburbs. Natural hair is not specific to a particular demographic.

9. We are also into twists, ‘locks and braids
Nope. There are plenty of natural ladies that would never wear dreadlocks, twists or braids.

10. It’s just a fad
I don’t think this one even deserves an explanation.

Are you a natural woman? Have you ever been per-judged based on your hair style?
