5 WAYS TO WEAR 1 WHITE T-SHIRT

VIDA SHEER WRAP (RED FIREWORKS).pngI just finished watching a You Tube video by Kenyan fashion blogger Sharon Mundia. In it, she demonstrates five fabulous ways to wear one white t-shirt. One of the pieces she models with the shirt is a beautiful, seafoam green wrap. So it got me to thinking about how awesome my wraps and scarves from my VIDA collection will look with a white t-shirt, one in particular being my “Red Fireworks” Sheer Wrap pictured here.

There are also a number of stunning, colorful and fashionable scarves in my VIDA collection that will pair extremely well with a white t-shirt.

STOP BULLYING

NYRAH'S BULLY (FRONT) 2.jpg

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior toward another person that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. It includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. Also, in our age of modern technology, it also includes cyberbullying.

Sadly, children can be the victims of bullies, the ones doing the bullying, or witnesses of this hurtful behavior. I personally know what it’s like to be bullied because as a young child, I was a victim.

A very dear friend of mine, children’s author Annette Bentley Smith, has just recently released her anti-bullying book. Although it is a children’s book, it is also geared toward families, which is so important because children who are victims of this horrific behavior need all the support they can get but especially from their families.

To purchase your Kindle edition and/or paperback copy of Ms. Smith’s new release or any of her other books, please click here to visit her Mrs. Annie’s Books Facebook page.

Also, to read up on bullying and how you can prevent it and respond to it, click here to visit the official site of the Stop Bullying website page.

As always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours <3!

INTRODUCING ME–EEVIE!

ELDERLY A-A WOMANHey, y’all!  How y’all doing?  My name’s Eevie.  Well, actu’lly, it’s Evelyn–Evelyn Faye Randall–but folks call me Eevie.  Now, this picture you see here ain’t me.  I just wonted to give y’all a idea of what I might look like when my creator Maxine Billings introduces me to y’all soon.

Most of y’all prob’bly remember me from Maxine’s short story, ONE OF AOOAK KIND.  I’m Paula’s ain’t.  We lives in Charlotte–Charlotte, North Carolina.  Have any of y’all ever been to Charlotte?  If’n you had’n, you needs to come.  Ooh, it’s beautiful here.  It’s the perfect place fer yer fam’ly to visit.  We got all kinds of parks, museums, and other fun places.  But enough of dat–y’all be thankin’ I works fer the Board of Tourism.  I best be gettin’ on wit what I was sayin’.

I’ll soon be making my ‘ficial–how you say it?–day-boo–day-brew–oh, you know what I mean–on the worldwide web.  I never woulda thunk it!  Me, a seventy-sumpthin’-year-old woman wit her own advice column all over the Innernet.

Well, I gotta keep this first blog–Whoo wee!  Um talkin’ Innernet lang’age!–short and simple.  Maxine let me borrow her Word Press account to write this–but she don’t know it yet.  Shhh.  Mum’s the wordUh-oh!  Gotta go!  I think I hear her coming!  I’m busted!

Talk to y’all later.  Good night!

Eevie
