I love you in a space where theirs no time 
Money is no value millions isn’t worth a dime
Life isn’t living death isn’t dying 
Breathing don’t pump the heart 
The brain doesn’t stimulate smarts
Trials aren’t the brick road to destiny
Earth isn’t what’s beneath of me 
Life doesn’t  start as a baby 
She isn’t to he what he is to she
Life is nothing because nothing is something
 This second! this piece of location were we stand is what is everything because here I stand right next to you 
I never lie I  told you of the space where I love you and we are in it I told you there’s no time so forever we are in it -EG2014

very chilling topic on twitter right now. 

i have my own reasons for #WhyIStayed, and looking through this hashtag, i can see so many women and men who were lost, just as i was.

i stayed because it was the first time i felt important to anyone. he “loved” me. when he said he would die if i left him, i thought it passionate. when he started showing up unannounced at my house, because my friends told him my brother’s friends were over, i thought the jealousy was endearing.

then he tried to kill himself when i left town for two days. he was convinced that i would find someone else, in a town where i knew no one. i came back home, and promised i would never leave.

the manipulation and emotional abuse became physical—but only once. he slammed me against a wall after i made a joke about dumping him once i started college. i hid the bruises from my family, for weeks. that was the moment i decided to get out, no matter what happened. for some people, it only takes one time. others need more than one. and some people never make it out alive.

it is not always easy to “just leave.” it is a blessing if you are able to leave, with no consequences.

Autumn Fever
Today I spent my day taking unique shots of my denim work with my work bud for the week. I really loved styling a woman with real curves and hips. Beauty comes in all sizes; embrace the ones the world loves and wants you to hide! This edition of style Fridays took place in the salon I work at 😜

"[The] women that I portray in my art are all around, but society sees them as almost invisible.”

This is how David James, the Trinidadian mind behind BBW Art, explains his work. The portfolio is a stunning showcase of the beauty and versatility of curvy women.

this is amazing

Most people give the homeless change or leftovers, Mark Bustos is cutting their hair

For the past few months, New York City hairstylist Mark Bustos — who normally spends his days working at an upscale salon — has been volunteering on his days off to offer haircuts to homeless people he sees on the street. With a simple phrase, “I want to do something nice for you today,” he has been helping people get a fresh, uplifting makeover.

For people who have been trapped in a cycle of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, the makeover can also serve a useful function: looking presentable for a job.

Idk why anyone bothers with BET. There’s a reason all the good black shows like Fresh Prince, Martin, Cosbys, Living single etc were not brought to BET.

BET is owned by Viacom aka ran by white people who’s only goal is to keep up black stereotypes and anti blackness.
