Champagne In My Teardrops

image

The sun is beaming down on me,
I’m messed up. I’m broken,
Catching teardrops,
I’ve been catching them all morning,
And the sun is beaming down on me.

The sun beams down on me as I count the number of times disappointment attacked me spiritually,
As I count the times hurt captured me and wouldn’t let go,
As I count the number of times I needed to be rescued,
And that day remained invisible,
For the moments I cried were numerous,
Champagne in my teardrops,
Every teardrop that ever fell upon my face,
I’ve celebrated,
I sit here and enjoy champagne thinking about the good times,
And the teardrops continue to fall,
For you,
For there is champagne in my teardrops as the sun beams down on me.

Behind A Tattoo

image

I’ve always admired the artistry of body art and the statement being made since I can remember. Creative hands, needle points, passion for the skill all goes into the preparation of a creation. Behind a tattoo is pure art, a passion for all kinds of art forms in the world. Although I can never see myself getting a tattoo because of my great fear of needles, I still respect the craft and the artist who creates the message that each tattoo delivers to us.

My Favorite Tats

Sleeves and Back tats are my favorite tats. The area of a tattoo intensifies the message for me. I don’t know if this thought is shared by others when you think about tats. The area of a tat is the window of a connection that links onlookers and observers of tats like myself to the artwork.

Sleeves

Whether sleeves depicts words or an image, they are pure admirations for me. Riveting colors or deep black ink, I love the promotion of the statement or message behind the tat.

Back Tats

Sentimental, back tats speak it loudly. Faces, words, calligraphy is the make up of body art landmarks that has observers in awe. So much passion goes into the detail, of a back tat. Sentimental moments combines themselves in the area’s message and depictions are none like no other.

Tattoos are loved and hated for all type of reasons. But this article is about celebrating the message behind tattoos. This article is about celebrating those who makes such beautiful tattoos possible…the tattoo artist. I’m a lover of tattoos and I always will be. The art within a tattoo draws me in and never lets me go.

Online Selling Giants: Ebay and Etsy

image

Photo: Pinterest

There is something appealing to me about online selling. I just can’t seem to put my finger on it entirely. Since 2009, I’ve been a fellow eBay seller, selling candles and other specialty merchandise on eBay. I’m in love with eBay. And the company continues to grow, providing special offers and perks for both buyer and seller. What would the world be without eBay? I don’t care to imagine. Because I’m really hoping eBay is still around in the upcoming years. What well known items are eBay most known for? Antiques, collectibles, jewelry, electronics, and automobiles are most popular and the most successful categories on eBay. This is the conclusion for the first “E.”

On the other hand, Etsy, a longtime pioneer website for the sale of handmade items brings something different to the table. Although I’m not an Etsy seller, Twitter and my frequent visits to Etsy shops keeps me informed of what items are “red hot” on etsy. What’s hot on etsy? The list includes:

Bohemian clothing
Crochet clothing
Crochet accessories
Handmade fashion jewelry
Arts and Crafts
Wedding Dresses
Wedding Gifts
Personalized Gifts

Handmade items are often sold on eBay by eBay stores and eBay sellers, but in my book, eBay can’t compete with in etsy in the sale of handmade items. Etsy is a leader in this particular industry. This concludes the 2nd “E.”

In conclusion, the special offers and perks between both the 2 Es’ are small and great. eBay offers buyers guaranteed buyer protection if they don’t receive an item as described. It’s partner company, PayPal, doesn’t release funds until the item is shipped and feedback is given on eBay for the item. It also offers sellers 50 free listings a month to sell an item, an added bonus is increased selling limits. Whereas, etsy offers 40 free listings as a site promotion. Both of the Es’ are leaders in their industries. Just know that you will be treated fairly if you choose to do business on either of the sites. Happy Shopping!

Etsy And The Success Of Bohemian Styles

image

Photo: Pinterest

I think I can most definitely say that Etsy, the online site for the sale of handmade items and other products has played a major role in the success of the Bohemian Style. The Bohemian Style has over 200 years been a big choice when it comes to styles of fashion for any given period. Generally, associated with artists, writers, and intellectuals, bohemian culture incorporates various ethic clothing styles, as well as historical costume (Delores Monet, 2016).

Bohemian style is loose fitting colorful clothing also known by the names boho chic, hippie style, or Aesthetic dress. Bohemians, with their long locks of hair and pure essential fibers, stand out in a crowd representing a counterculture whose very existence has been connected to creativity, poverty, and differential connections to social structures and traditions (Delores Monet, 2016).

Back to Etsy And The Bohemian Style

I mentioned in the beginning of this article that Etsy is believed to be one of the reasons for the acceptance and success of the Bohemian style in this era. I myself was not fond of the long, colorful, loose fitting clothing years ago until I stumbled upon Etsy, the website that has millions of online sellers who sell bohemian clothing, jewelry, and accessories. The most popular occasion that is mostly advertised on social media sites such as Twitter is Etsy bohemian wedding. Let’s take a look at some of the items from bohemian weddings.

Bohemian Wedding Dress

Bohemian wedding dresses are usually handmade out of the finest materials such as: chiffon, satin, and lace. On Etsy, you can have the dress made to order, customized just for you.

Bohemian Barefoot Sandals

These are usually made to order on Etsy. The customization for this item is open. Perfect for beach weddings.

To conclude, the bohemian style will live on for generations to come. This is an accepted fashion style that is neither boring or gets old with those who wear it. Think about the history of the bohemian style next time you wear something from this elegant fresh style of dress. Only those who respect the history can really appreciate the nature of its fibers.

Beautiful

image

Photo: Pinterest

No prima donna,
Just a looker,
No I don’t place such emphasis on my appearance,
But who I am on the inside,
No such thing as ugly within or outside,
I fold up all negative attributes that I was once told I had and toss them into the trash where they belong.
This is me,
This is the beautiful me.

Guaranteed to go down in history as a beautiful fortress,
In history,
You’ll see me next to the beautiful African queens,
Queen I am,
If you’re female,
So are you,
No matter the race, creed, nationality,
You are a queen,
Just like me,
A beauty,
The beautiful me.

Taste the love,
Self-love,
Who are we without it?
Not beautiful,
Not the beautiful me.

Equipped with my self-love,
I journey through this world that doesn’t promise me beautiful moments,
But I capture and claim them all on my quest,
Love is planted deep within me,
I’ve written my story,
And now have become the beautiful me.

Steampunk Fashion Era

image

Photo: Pinterest

Want to make a big fashion statement? Go the “steampunk” way. This slowly accepted fashion, artistic look is so unique in design that only the bold and brave can rock it accordingly. The slowly accepted, vintage, with a mix of bells, pipes, brass, and other things that makes this look stand out, is most definitely in the “spotlight” with some major music artists who have adopted the look over the years.

image

Photo: Pinterest

New York Times, reporter, Ruth La Ferla reported back in 2008 that the “vision of steampunk” is a subculture that is the untold time traveling-fantasy world. This particular fashion world backdrop goes behind the scenes of music, film, and design, and incorporates all of these key elements in “steampunk.” The look is inspired by the inventive days of steam locomotives, brass, diving bells, and jar-shaped protosubmarines. “Steampunk” made its first appearance back in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Photo: Pinterest

Today, the hot fashion trend has fully evolved into a godzilla of fashion and artistic style. Not only does the one of a kind fashion trend grab people attention, but so does the art behind it all.

image

Photo: Pinterest

Major blockbuster movies such as, “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” has showcased this style in the various costumes worn by characters within the movie. Ruth goes on to report, “This style of dress, this style of art is a marketer’s dream because it can’t be categorized in the marketing world.” Everyone sees this fashion statement differently. It’s partly because, most individuals who embrace the style may have many visions of intricate taste in fashion that cannot be fully portrayed in just one look of “steampunk.” My prediction is because of this little known fact that the interest in this style of fashion will continue to grow in upcoming years.

image

Photo: Pinterest

In conclusion, “steampunk” is not intended for everyone. The look is for those who dare to be extremely different. Some say, the acceptance of “steampunk” has a lot to do with things such as identity and character. You are who you feel. So dress the part. I love this style of fashion. And I can most definitely see some pieces from this collection in my closet in the upcoming years.

Erase The Hate Campaign

image

Photo: Pinterest

You dislike me because of the color of my skin,
Not knowing who I am within,
A bonus I am to the world,
A role model for the shades of every boy and girl.

You dislike me because of my heritage,
You seek to oppress with your live campaign for “racism,”
I fight back with my “erase the hate” campaign,
You stereotype what you don’t understand,
God made us all brilliant and unique,
Every free and enslaved woman and man.

You seek to devastate,
But I’m here to help erase what seems like a lifetime of hate,
Superior we all are,
Like the dizzy clouds in the sky and glistening stars.

Erase the hate,
My poetry of freedom is irate,
Racism doesn’t need to have a place in this world,
Role models exist in every race for every boy and girl.

What I seek to add to this world I shall find,
My voice, my words, imagery I display remains kind,
With each piece of writing produced, I seek to erase hate,
My words, my depictions, my perceptions of kindness are irate,
Love all,
Erase the hate and answer the call.
Act now.
