Leopard print is back, again! Leopard comes around at least once a year and stays with us just in time for the winter months. Designers from Balmain to Hermes have repeatedly used leopard print in their collections but still have the ability to keep the trend current and up to date according to the season. Like with any bold print wear sparingly, and never from head to toe. A tasteful leopard print dress can be sexy when paired with a bright shoe to punctuate the outfit. You can also try a leopard print shoe for a wow effect. It’s rare that prints are considered a classic but leopard is classy and necessary in a true fashionistas wardrobe.

Lyric Love

2 Jul

There is never a time that the lady Jill Scott does not have lyrics to express any emotion that I am feeling. Philadelphia born singer Jill Scott has words for my love, lust and even my anger. I have loved Jill Scotts music since her very first album but “The Real Thing Words and Sounds Volume. 3” did a beautiful job of expressing Jill’s feeling of hurt and heartache after ending a longterm relationship. Purely coincidence that I was also ending a serious relationship at the time of the albums release date, I felt as though she had written these lyrics for me. “My Love” is perfectly written. Enjoy!

“My Love”

By: Jill Scott

Yo, I’m tripping right,
I heard you got married.
You got married?
No I mean, make any
It don’t really make any sense
I mean, it’s not like I, I didn’t think you were seeing other people or whatever,
I mean I was seeing other people but
You know what this is,
You know what it was, you tsch
I can’t say I really understand though

You chose her cause she’s sweet as pie
Take what you give, even your lies
But baby, are happy without me?
She scrubs your back, washes your clothes
Gives you everything that ask for
But don’t you ever want more?
’cause my love

My love is deeper
Didn’t you know this,
Or didn’t you notice?
(My love, my love)
My love is deeper
Didn’t you know this,
Or didn’t you notice?

Mmmm, what we had don’t need no words
Deeper than anything you ever heard
I ain’t reaching baby,
I know I should be your lady
You say you’re happy
You say you’re great
But you know and I know you really ain’t
You need to come be with me
That’s the way it’s supposed to be


Cause oh,
All I ever do is think about you baby
I hold you in my arms inside my dreams
And I know what I know and what I know is
That no matter where you go
You will always think of me
