Another IG picture! Be original, be a leader, do NOT follow the crowd!
Light was shined on my life the day my co-worker Trisha introduced me to her good friend, and amazing nail tech, SUNSHINE! Yes, her name is sunshine and it fits her perfectly, lots of spunk, lots of attitude, and a ton of talent. It is impossible not to get excited when you see Sunshine’s set up and nail polish collection. The different array of colors and polish brands will have you so confused deciding on your perfect mani pedi color.
Every thing Sunshine does is Cute Chic and Classy. Aside from her regular clients Sunshine has a number of celebrity clients, and works the NY Fashion Week each year. She’s a young, talented, business woman, striving for perfection; taking her name and career to the next level!

Last month there were talks that a group of NFL ballers would come out in support of each other about there sexual preferences. Yesterday Jason Collins a Center for the Boston Celtics decided to let the world know that he is actually a Homosexual African American man, making himself the first openly gay professional American athlete.
Collin’s announcement was met with mixed reviews. Many people have given back negative feed back, making jokes, even to go as far as to make “funny” instagram pictures. But just as many people hate the idea of a openly gay black athlete, our country has grown so much that the support he’s received is just as powerful if not more.
Society puts so much pressure on people to live a certain way. If you do not fit into the “norm” you are ridiculed, looked at differently, and judged. All being some of the worse feelings in the world. With more athlete’s, celebrities, and even politicians admitting to their sexual preferences doors will open for so many young people dealing with identity issues.
I think each and every person should be proud of themselves, their life, and their choices. No one is living your life and the only person you need to make happy is yourself. Who cares what anyone else thinks.
Check out Jason Collin’s interview in the May 6,2013, issue of Sports Illustrated.
MISSION STATEMENT: The NOH8 Campaign is a charitable organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest.
I love the NOH8 Campaign. They have a great pitch and even better visuals to go along. Besides their celebrity status and support, the NOH8 campaign pictures are memorable and unique. In today’s society the celebrity influence is very strong, and they have utilized that factor to the max. Their website contains everything from pictures, upcoming events, and a blog.

and a few of my favorite celebrity supporters of this movement 🙂
For my Social Media Class, we had to pick a social topic and explore how this movement has used social media to help or hurt their movement. One topic that has used social media to its full advantage since day one and still has successful running campaign’s is the movement for marriage equality.
In recent years the topic of same sex marriage is becoming harder and harder to just sweep under the rug. A topic that was once unspoken and seen as a forbidden topic, has now been thrust into the public eye. Members of this “secret society” and their supporters no longer want to be quiet, and are demanding the same rights as other Americans.
We have seen this movement transform into something that was never talked about, mentioned, or portrayed, now we see it everywhere. From commercials, television shows and movies portraying same sex couples, to even a few states changing laws allowing these couples to get married.
What are your views on Marriage Equality? Do you think just because someone has a different preference on who they choose to love that they should not be awarded a union as everyone else?
My best friend Jerica is such a fashionista, She is my fashion idol and i just love everything she puts on. From her hair to make-up to her outfit Jerica always makes sure she looks her best when stepping out. She is the mother of my wonderfully equal fashion forward god-daughter, so everything Jerica wears is mommy friendly and COMFORTABLE. This is why i love her style so much, its so easy, chic, comfortable and classy.
Jerica has many talents in life, so i decided to help her make a career out of this talent she has. I HATE to shop, it has just always been something that i hated. Jerica on the other hand loves to shop, so i asked her to be my stylist. She picks some pieces for me and puts them into my stores online shopping cart. In return I’ll buy her a piece of her choice from that store. This is such a great way for Jerica to get the stylist experience and also get a few pieces to add to her collection.
Jerica will also be creating a fashion blog very soon, which she’ll share her many secrets with all of us. I will make sure to feature her in a new post will all of her accounts.
