2013 New Year Inspiration Life Flight

By: Carol Bruce-Lockhart The door was now open And the bird was freed She thought, and then she crept closer to see The wind brought a fragrence of the future that it held Then with a curious flutter-She expanded her wings and sailed All fear was smothered As she lounged toward the portal of what was to come She was the baby,the seedling, the very last one I stood transfixed As I watched her gracefully rise My impulse was to block her accent to the sky Instead, I smiled and quietly whispered... “goodbye� Goodbye to the safety of her well worn cage Goodbye to the sameness of her day to day

hair African-American Women New Hair Color Trend: Hot & Sexy in Blond By: Marie Hines Recently, at every star-studded party and red carpet affair, we have seen the hottest African American female celebrities go glam in blond. This trend had taken over the fashion world for a while now and is showing no signs of slowing down. Women of color A-listers who sported blonde hair, include Beyonce, Mary J. Blige,Naomi Campbell, Eve, lil Kim, Keisha Cole, Tyra Banks, Keri Hilson, Christina Milian, Lala Vasquez,Wendy Williams and Cassandra Wilson, to name a few. Blond colored hair is a very popular trend among AfricanAmerican female celebrities nowadays whether they are famous singers, actresses, elite socialites or TV reality stars. It is quite a daring move that has been seen often lately on stage, or on the runway as well as the red carpet. Many mainstream fashion and hair magazines, as well as popular blogs and social media websites, highlight again and again the various blond hair color choices of women. This bold hair color trend has been made by many celebrities of African descent with various tone of brown skin, which is often considered by many, to be a daring beauty move and an audacious fashion statement. Today many women of African descent have decided to take a plunge into setting this trend, by changing their hair color from a less subtle dark tone to a more bold and bright hue: Blond and




the most effective way to do so is to bleach the hair. However bleaching dark or black hair isn’t very healthy, as it does generate a lot of damage to the hair strand’s natural state. So opting for a blond hair unit is one of the easiest and safest ways to go blond without using hair bleach. Choosing a full lace hair unit in any hairstyle and any length in any blond color variation, has never been easier considering the wide range of 100% human hair lace wigs available on the market nowadays. However knowing which blond hair color tone will work best for women of color can be a challenge. How to Pick the Right Blond Hair Color for your Skin Tone First, learn how to pick a hair color that will look best with your skin tone by understanding that everyone has a specific undertone within their skin tone and certain hair colors will complement those tones, allowing the wearer to look younger, refreshed, glowing or in adverse effect causing the wearer’s face to look ashy, dark or older. Photo:

Also you will need to decide whether to want a single solid blond hair color or just blond highlights. As you may have noticed, some celebrities have opted for lighter blond tone highlights to frame their face, while choosing to have a gradual warmer blond hue proceed from the crown to the nape. Choosing the right Blond Hair color The important thing to remember thing about choosing a fitting blond hair color is that you want to have some contrast between your face and the blond hair color tone you are sporting, so having a bronze tone or light brown skin tone will show up well with light blonde hair color shades. Photo:


Other things to consider is your clothing choice, because very busy prints , as well as heavy stitching or bright almost neon like colors can compete with your hair color in a unflattering fashion, so it is best to wear neutrals or pastel colors as well as solid fabric clothing when picking up dresses, tops , jacket and even jewelries . First you will need to decide on what Blond color Tone you will go with, so check the blond color chart below to see the various blond hair color tone listed below: • Golden Platinum • Pale Golden Blonde • Honey Blonde • Brownish Blonde • Platinum Ash Blonde • Butterscotch • Dark Blonde • Light Beige Blonde • Light Ash Blonde • Light Golden Blonde • Pale Golden Blonde • Strawberry Blonde The decision to go with a light or dark blond will also depend on various factors like your lifestyle, your mood or your wardrobe style or even the occasion (e.g. summer time or/and vacation time, entertainment shows)


Some of the most popular blond hair color tones suited for a wide range of brown skinned tones is: Strawberry Blond (color #27), Golden Blond (color #22) and Platinum Blond (Color #613) (For more information on hair color chart, simply click on the link below) Is Hair Color only a Fashion Statement or more? Blonde hair on black women can be strikingly beautiful and can be sported in many ways from classy to fashion stricken to sporty and casual, however being African-American or of African descent and sporting blond hair is often considered by most to be a daring beauty move, interpreted by many as rebellious and against accepted society norms.



Indeed, hair colors are said to be used, by some people as a tool to send a message to the world that one is now willing to take control of one’s own life whether it is by a risk-taking move or a non-conformist attitude or even is some cases by a conservative approach. What Does Your Hair Color Say About You? Many times you will hear people say that blond hair makes a person look younger. However it is also known, that as a person reaches a certain age (blondes included) the need to cover grey hair causes to resort to dying their hair in dark color tones or even black.

Can the color of your hair really cause people to stereotype one’s character and traits? For instance people say red heads are hot blooded and blondes are air heads and brunettes are smart. Whereas those who sport a blue, pink and green hair color are considered misfits, anarchists or outcasts from the society due to the non-conformity of their hair color choice. Thankfully, our way of thinking are changing and society now does recognize that a person’s hair color, nowadays, can just be one of many ways to express one’s personality facet. Wearing blond hairstyles can just mean that you are fun and like trying new things, and it can just be like wearing a new fun pair of eccentric designer shoes. It can also be a way of showing that you are a true trendsetter. So keep in mind that, whether blond or not, hair color is just that — hair color. No matter if you are a woman of color, who wants to sport strawberry blond hair or a woman of Caucasian descent who wants to wear blue hair: “It’s your prerogative” (thanks, Bobby Brown). Remember to always stay true to yourself and to sport the hair color you like. And always do so because you want it to be that way — not because someone else says that you should or shouldn’t look the way you do. Because hair color, although sometimes stereotyped, is just hair color. Who need yet another physical attribute to divide us more within our gender — or a race?

fashion Dress Down in the Streets: Old Man Winter By: Tiffany Harris

For a lot of us winter time means bulky, frumpy, unflattering clothes. It’s hard to even want to put an effort into getting dressed when you think of going out and facing the elements of “Old Man Winter.” Dressing warm doesn’t mean you have to lose your sexy Dress Down is here to prove it to you . One of the best things you can do in the winter is layer right? Layering doesn’t have to mean coat, on top of jacket, on top of sweater, on top of t-shirt. Playing around with some of your summer wardrobe may give you more options than you think when you add a basic long sleeved tee that you can find just about anywhere for any size. Jeggings are a year round clothing item and if you find that they alone don’t keep you warm a thin pair of tights underneath may do the trick. Last but not least if the snow isn’t too high out there throw on those ankle booties and strut your stuff like weather is the same as Miami’s! Accessories can make all the difference in an outfit going from “grocery store” to “night out”. Scarves are our best friends in the cooler climates. They can be dressed up and they can be casual as well. Bracelets, and earrings are a must have accessory when you are trying to make your outfit stand out. Some of us would rather take the risk of catching the flu than to mess up our fresh hair-do that we spent a pretty penny and several hours in the shop for, for such ladies the fashion industry is putting a spin on some classic necessities. Cute, fun inexpensive head wraps, ear muffs and scarves are popping up everywhere. Bedazzled ear muffs are my favorites this season and they can definitely put a spark in your outfit and some pep in your step. There you have it the winter weather dress down! Stay warm and stay cute ladies!



How to Get This Style... Basic Crew Neck Tee – Rue 21 $12.99

Hooded Tie-Dye Vest $59.95

Scarf - Rue 21 $7.99

Booties – Just Fab $39.95 Jeggings – Forever 21 $14.50

beauty Great Tips for Effective Eyelash Growth

Š Back in the old days, women have been trying different methods to make eyelashes appear longer, ticker, and fuller by using mascara and curler. Even if it seemed like a little part of the body, women have found that eyelashes add up gorgeous beauty to the eyes. While eyelashes actually grow even in adult years after losing out thru falling away, applied science has also discovered ways to reinforce the natural


growth cycle of eyelashes to promote healthier, longer, and fuller eyelashes. Below are the various ways of enhancing lash growth. Natural Way for Promoting Longer Eyelashes Of course, there’s no other better way to promote healthier and longer eyelash growth than acquiring proper diet and nutrition. Having a proper amount intake of foods rich in protein, calories, vitamins


C and E, and minerals is the basic way. The first way to start the process of enhancing the growth of eyelashes is through the application of olive or castor oil at the base of the eyelashes using an eyelash brush, cotton bud, or Q-tip. Another ingredient to use by dabbing a small amount on your eyelashes is Vitamin E in oil form and Vaseline. These are effective eyelash conditioners that promise best results within a month or two after a constant use every night before going to bed.

One thing you must also understand is the benefit of regularly trimming your eyelashes. You don’t have to worry about losing your lashes because just like the hair of your head, it can promote growth both in the sense of width and length. Do not freak out if you loss an eyelash during the procedure because of the fact that lashes grow back within one to two months. Chemical Aid for Promoting Growth of Eyelashes Another mechanism to enhance eyelash growth is through the aid of chemical agents such as medications. These medications contain mainly of synthetic chemical ingredients specifically made to promote longer lashes. There are some medicines manufactured for lash growth enhancement that includes specialized brush for the lashes. The reason behind this alternative way to grow longer lashes arose from the discovery that once glaucoma patients achieved longer eyelashes due to the medications that they were taking. The medicine they were taking was named Prostaglandin Analog. Since then there were

more researchers and innovations made to improve the drug and make it specifically and exclusively for stimulating longer lash growth. Guard Yourself from Allergic Reactions When You Follow Different Mechanisms for Lash Growth It is an imperative thing to consider certain brands and ingredients if you choose to purchase various lash growth enhancers. You must be wise enough to do some research and be well-informed about the ingredients to know if they will have some adverse reaction with your eye because you want to improve your lashes not make them worse. Some adverse effects have an unpleasant effect affecting even the eyes. Though eyelashes growth products are widely available in almost every department store and online, every individual has unique characteristics and health conditions and has unique reactions to the chemicals. It’s always best to find what suits your own eyelashes’ needs. You also have to consider the side effects of each product. There are several reviews claiming a change in the color of the eyes and

skin discoloration after excessive application of a certain lash boosting product. Always bear in my mind that the main function of the eyelashes is to protect the eyes more than just cosmetic purposes. So it’s best to consult your physician in assisting you with using chemicals for eyelash growth. Source: great-tips-for-effective-eyelashgrowth-2434021.html
