YOUTUBE: A few ladies in Dallas got together for a "Formation/Black Girl Magic" photoshoot for the CreateHerStock stock gallery for people of color. The ladies decided to record a video on the spot in between the photoshoot. The dance was coordinated and filmed in less than 30 minutes..... TeamWork makes the DreamWork!
"This is by far one of the FUNest things I've ever done as a photographer!" said I'sha Gaines. "Fun times of Women Empowering Women! The perfect HoneyBeNatural Magazine + Createherstock collaboration!"

The Blog: HAIR IN FORMATION by ERMA W., OWNER OF THE POMADE SHOP
Imagine a smooth caress lavishing your skin. It makes you feel as if you are floating on feathers. What if it were good for you too? That scenario is an awesome reality with silk. Not only does silk feel good on the skin, it is also great for the hair. Get your hair in formation with these super-silky tips :
1. Silk protein: If you have fears about protein, let them dissolve like water in the soil. Silk protein is the lightest and gentlest of all proteins. It strengthens the hair without producing a hard feeling from protein that some people abhor. For a lightweight protein coupled with a nice dose of strength, silk protein is the way to go.
2. Silk-lined hats : When it's frigid, you have to cover your head, especially if you're not fond of headaches, earaches, and all those other detestable symptoms of the common cold. The hats that we grew up wearing may have been super cute, but they weren't very kind to our tresses. Enter silk-lined hats: the fashionably-friendly alternative for hair. Keep your head warm and leave breakage by the wayside. Check out BoutiqueDeBandeaux on Etsy for some great selections.
3. Silk bonnets and pillowcases: Just as sleep is important for physical health, our hair's protection is imperative for its well-being. The hair needs to be covered with smooth fibers to remain in place and maintain its moisture. Silk bonnets and pillowcases help the hair to keep its lushness and swagger. They're ultra sexy, too, so you'll be stylin' in your sleep.
THE EMPOWERMENT: POEM by MARQUISHA APPLEWHITE (@ALWAYSMARQ)
Learn These things
God always has a purpose and a plan!
Everyone won’t like you.
Control your emotions and don’t allow them to control you.
Some smiles are really frowns.
Some people only pick you up to put you down.
The only way to make progress is start.
Your flavor isn’t everybody’s taste.
Ignorance has no age; some people will be foolish forever.
Right is right and nothing is wrong about it.
A peace of mind is priceless and it’s a peaceful place to be.
Don’t let a broken heart break you; you can and will heal.
Time makes things more bearable.
People who are meant to be in your life will be there.
Love and respect yourself.
Don’t settle for anything when you can have everything.
Dream, wake up, work, enjoy.
Learn these things………….
