Black is Beautiful

In light of recent posts written by big time celebs Kelly Rowland and Brandy
about the struggle to embrace their beautiful dark brown skin, it reminded of a post I wrote awhile back titled “You’re Pretty…for a Dark Skinned Girl.” I too, have struggled with having dark skin. I was blessed enough to have an amazing mother who told me how beautiful I was and did little things like only buying me black Barbies so I could see representations of beauty the world that looked like me. However, it was the rest world that would continue to try and convince me that my skin wasn’t beautiful. But eventually, I was able to come to a point in my life where I said f*ck ’em, if people can’t appreciate what I have to offer then they aren’t worth my time. I think all shades of brown are beautiful and hope that one day they are all celebrated equally. 
Those posts inspired me to start a Beauty Diary series, featuring beauty products that I love, that look great on women of color..especially darker skinned woman. Growing up I’ve had such a hard time trying to find colors that actually looked good on me. So…stay tuned, I love makeup and will be sharing all my beauty loves!!

Grammy’s Best Dressed

If you are following me on Instagram (@kerrilove), you already know who my fave Grammy looks were. But my top two looks would have to be …..
Kelly Rowland! Who looked absolutely and perfectly gorgeous in a Georges Chakra gown. Her body looks amazing and she is showing just the right amount of skin!
But I also have to give props to my girl Rih Rih who looked gorgeous during and post-Grammys. 
She looks so beautiful in this custom Azzedine Alaina dress.  That Rihanna reign just won’t let up!
Her post Grammy look was also perfection.  I love the all white with the accent fur! The crop top and draped skirt are both designed by Adam Selman.
