It probably won't be shocking, or even remotely surprising, when I tell you that there are different attitudes regarding black-owned, and white-owned luxury fashion labels. Whilst white-owed brands are likely to get away with whatever they want in terms of marketing, prices and design, it's been made clear that there is a different standard and set of expectations reserved for black-owned brands and businesses.
Manifestation is a practice that can often be compared to the Law of Attraction; the often spiritual essence of manifestation teaches us that the energies that we exert can often return to us in the form of things we desire, that being happiness, money, love or maybe even that promotion you’ve been longing for. There is no single definition of manifestation, and no single explanation of how it works, as it’s rather subjective and tailored to every individual.
As awareness surrounding global warming increases, it's natural that more of us are becoming more conscious of our carbon footprint, and the impact on the Earth that we are personally responsible for. If you haven't heard of a carbon footprint before, a carbon footprint refers to the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere as a result of the activities that you have partaken in. Every person, every community, every country and every organization has a carbon footprint; whilst it's large counties and organizations who are responsible for a large majority of issues surrounding pollution and global warming, it's important that we all play our part to impact the world positively—no matter how small our actions are.
Many people have different ideas on what it means to be classy. I believe class is a combination of two things: The sophisticated nature of elegance and the traditional sense of etiquette. Coming across as classy has little, in fact nothing, to do with wealth, status and superiority but everything to do with behaviour, attitude and confidence. It’s all about self-awareness, and being confident in the way that you conduct yourself and present yourself to others. Being classy is an easy thing to practice once the two areas (etiquette & elegance) are broken down into pointers that we may already be conscious of, but may not be used to practicing day by day.
You may think it's rather peculiar when I tell you that I absolutely LOVE Valentine's Day, but I'm not so keen on the idea of being in a relationship. Whilst I wouldn't consider myself to be a "relationship person," I love love; and I love food and all things pink, red, fragrant, and beautiful—and let's be real, that just about sums up February 14th.
