Notes. World Aids Day

"To forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time." -Night, Elie Wiesel 

I miss so many friends who remained silent rather than ask or seek help and died from AIDS. Suffering in silence must end. Knowing your status or that of your partner is crucial for women, men, teens and older adults - all races but especially for black women and teens where the numbers are new cases are increasing.  Perhaps with greater knowledge, care and education available today, things would have been different for them but whatever the case - I remember them and miss them all at once; today and everyday.

I stepped up to the ATM and saw this cutie waiting for it's owner, she had a bit of attitude as well! I couldn't resist taking the photo.

Nature's Beauty. Pomegranate

Pomegranates are in your local produce section or farmer's market in abundance this time of year and in the juice section year round. It's another whole food or fruit full of natural anti-oxidants and full Vitamin C and B6. In addition, you can add pomegranates to the list of fruits that can be preventative against breast, prostate and lung cancer, cardiovascular disease and helpful in raising the good cholesterol.

Holiday Style. Liya Kebede For Anne Taylor

The holiday campaign featuring Liya Kebede for Anne Taylor is lovely. I'm currently obsessed with large chunky necklaces and bracelets and really like the ones featured in this ad. To see more images click to see the complete Lookbook.

Classic Beauty. Carmen Dell'Orefice

There's something to be said about aging gracefully. It's always nice to see examples, though as we all know it's rare; especially in fashion, film, music and media. Legendary model Carmen Dell'Orefice has done so magnificently.
