Tips to a Pearl Black and Bright Look this summer.

A pearl black and bright look (pbb) is about pulling it off and putting it down just like my pearl sister(Kelly Rowland) would say it. It's about the confidence, the comfort and the fitting.The purpose to bring beauty, class and power exuding the pearl in the blackness. Check this out:

Keep it on point: Oh yeah sis, over dressing is not it. Too much of everything is nothing. A little bit of this and that well blended. Be in control and don't let the whole thing take away the aura the beauty. Don't get swallowed. CHECK!

Be Black, be proud: Be proud of who you are. Flunt your ID. Thats who you are. Those kinky hairs, those afro looks. Be creative with your heritage looks; there's much you can do with your hair.No!, no foreign hairs! Keep it real gal....

Bright up and shine with those colours: Bright colours have always been symbolic with African design. Be ethnical this season. Use colour to bring live and vigour around you.They compliment your skin colour and energizes you. How about a little tinting of your afro?

Be posh and classy: Show what you got gurl. Bra straps, your manicure, your hair, your perfume , CHECK!.
Be sure that the bra colour, size and fitting are perfect, the nails well groomed, facial hairs sorted, the make up well toned with your skin colour,Your deodorant are not  miss behaving ,under arm no traces of sweat. perfume not over powering you. Everything under control. Right girl, do your thing.

Accessorize: Keep it down girl.They are just to asentuate your beauty, your worth.  Too much of jewelries make you appear cheap and over zealous.Over accessorizing swallows the whole style leaving you looking like a drag. COME ON GIRL! KEEP IT LESS, KEEP IT REAL SIS!.

Be on your game: Do ya thing. Get those heads turning,move with power, be sure to lift and drop those legs precisely. Move with confidence and self importance. Remember if you appear confident then you are.

My pearl, my mentor in many ways.Originally named Orpah Gail Winfrey, born on the 29th of January 1954 by her poor unmarried teenage mother. At the time, Oprah suffered so many hardships and abuse. According to her, she was raped at avery tender age of 9, later at the age of 14 she had a baby that died soon after.

Despite all that she went through, she found her way around when she ran away from her family . She landed a job in the radio while she was still in the high school. As she progressed in the entertainment industry, she launched her own talk show named after her.

Today Oprah is the most influencial woman in the world. The greatest black philantropist. A counsellor. She is a co-author of 5 books. Much loved for her down to earth approach to broadcasting of her show. She understands the need to listen to others. She is a multi billionaire though according to her, she is grateful for all that she has and she knows what to do with it. She says; 'my life is that of service and love. My brand is love'.

When asked, she says that she is always careful and observant to the kind of energy that she exudes in her space and that of people who come around her. She advices, 'never allow people to bring negative energy around you.' She says, 'shouting at people reduces the positive energy for productivity.'

The First Lady, Michelle Obama.

My pearl first lady. A lady we love and cherish. A mother of two, a wife of the 44th president of the United States of America. A beautiful fashion icon of our time. A priceless woman.

Michelle Obama, born january 17th, 1964, originally Michelle LaVaughn Robinson. She attended Princeton university and Harvard  law university. Before she became the first Lady, she worked at the university  of Chicago Medical Centre.

She not only assumed office as the First Lady, she has used her office to advocate for poverty awareness , nutrition and healthy eating.

She says, 'mentoring young women is my passion.' 'Nuture your dream, work hard, and practise who you want to be at all times. Push forward, go for it.' She says; 'Know who you are, push beyond people's view of you, trust your instinct, success is about confidence not personal background. Aspire to go far and higher.'  'There's always going to be doubts but it's the ability to push beyond the disbelief that makes the difference. Read, write, read and keep reading.'
