With southern charm, an unparalleled drive, and a trademark smile, Teyonah Parris, is making strong waves in the acting world!

Teyonah is one of the latest additions to the critically acclaimed cast of AMC’s hit show MAD MEN; she can also be seen in a McDonald’s commercial that is running nationwide.

We were all introduced to Ms. Parris in 2010. The year marked two debut performances for her: the Great White Way and the Silver Screen. Teyonah shared the stage at Lincoln Center with Jeffrey Wright and Mos Def in Broadway’s new show, A FREE MAN OF COLOR. She also celebrated the release of her first feature film, Columbia Pictures romantic comedy, HOW DO YOU KNOW, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jack Nicholson, Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd (dir. James L. Brooks).

I LOVE the fact that’s shes in the movie industry and doing her thang with kinky hair! Thats a bold and risk-taking statement in a industry full of relaxed and flat ironed hair. Teyonah DEFINITELY makes me want to wear my fro big and PROUD. Every time I see her on the red carpet or in photoshoots she is GORGEOUS, natural and PROUD. Looking different and standing out in a room full of millions , Teyonah embodies what a natural superwoman is. She always gets it right , since day one she has never disappointed me with anything…. and her HAIR is EVERYTHING and always on point.

Let Freedom Reign

“We were carried here in shackles from the homeland
Broom-chopped, chain-locked, brainwashed, programmed
Time’s changed, freedom reigns, I’m a grown man
Holding the future in the palms of my own hands
In this world the coonery and tomfoolery
All I’m trying to do is stay true to my community
The daily news ain’t the only thing that’s schooling me
Watching these haters operating with impunity
It’s dirty dollar signs
Black and white collar crimes
Running out of time
Out of sight, out of mind
It gets realer in Israel, in Palestine
Troubles of the world start to seem intertwined
War criminals, conflict minerals
Pillagers are coming home
Five-star generals
Telling lies in press conferences and interviews
I’m trying to take back the power
Cause it’s been abused.” Black Thought

Black girls are punished and mocked for their originality while others co-opt it. ‪#‎VogueArticles‬

The very people who exclude black girls from beauty standards profit from and co-opt black women’s creations. #VogueArticle

For the same reasons Vogue says Jennifer Lopez ushered in the “booty” era. When something is inherent to our culture, it is marginalized and seen as undesirable. When the dominant culture does it, they are given benefit of doubt. We saw this with Miley Cyrus and twerking, JLO and booty, Angelina Jolie and thick lips.

What’s going on Family.. lets talk. These double standards HAVE TO STOP?

Poetic Justice

“Every time I write these words, they become a taboo
Making sure my punctuation curve, every letter here’s true
Living my life in the margin and that metaphor was proof
I’m talking poetic justice, poetic justice.” – Kendrick Lamar

Braids are very in right now…and I love it! Im a 80s baby so when I was in middle school and high school they were called DOOKIE Braids. Now thanks to Janet Jackson and Kendrick Lamar they have a new cutier name which is Poetic Justice Braids. This name came John Singleton’s Poetic Justice movie were Janet Jackson rocked fat, long and gorgeous braids.

 There’s a dozen reasons why I love braids..its convenient, easy-to-maintain and cost-effective. With the approaching rains, it makes for an even better hairstyle because it requires zero fussing even when beaten by the rain.

 But as with every hairstyle, wearing the same look for an extended period of time can get boring and tiring and its no different with braids…well not anymore! Gone are the days when ladies wore their box braids packed in a bun everyday. With celebrities like Solange and Chrisette Michele stepping out in stylish braids, more and more ladies are getting adventurous and trying out various exciting styles. I found a few of such pictures showing several creative ways you can pack your braids and decided to share.

REMEMBER even with Protective low maintenance hairstyles NEVER neglect your scalp ♡♥♡

The MISeducation of a Fashion Blogger

“Sometimes it seems
We’ll touch that dream
But things come slow or not at all
And the ones on top, won’t make it stop
So convinced that they might fall
Let’s love ourselves then we can’t fail
To make a better situation
Tomorrow, our seeds will grow
All we need is dedication.” – Lauryn Hill

Sitting in a Brooklyn nail salon getting pampered for the upcoming events for Fashion Week in New York (Sept 6 2014) …..and it popped in my head IM HERE , I LIVE HERE. Being a up and coming blogger from Vegas who left it all to move to the concrete jungle….. to live out my DREAMS!

Ive ALWAYS loved writing and pictures and when social media took off a million of ladies and gents such as myself found it cool to have an outlet and a audience for our hobby. Ill admit I was shy in the being , I mean I was a shy writer who didn’t like to be in the pictures I took as much as I liked to take them. So I studied blogging… YES I studied blogging. I spent nights on my favorite bloggers fb pages and YouTube getting a feel for this new social media craze. I credit MsVaughn , Fashionbombdaily ,Bambisarmoire , All Things Slim and StylejunkYard for be helpful , uplifting and just down right humble and genuine ladies .

What I didn’t know was a lot of the bloggers thought they where real celebrities. I mean just cause they dress up and have a lot of likes …were they better than me? I was a little taken back im not gonna lie and the hood in me wanted to read some of these Facebook/Instgram personalities for filth but instead I vowed to always be there for the next up and coming blogger and just HELP anyway I could. Mainly because I know to well how it feels to have your message read but never responded to ( thanks FB and IG). That alone can really do something to your mind and you start second guessing it like is this what you really want to do.

In true Tesha fashion I didn’t give up and dived in head first. Consistency is the key to blogging ….they crave that fix. Fast forward to now after 2 years I have close to 15,000 followers , Fashion Editor of Da-sh Magazine and finishing my internship at Vibe Vixen Magazine. All this from Blogging! How did blogging get me here you ask…..

After blogging and writing it came to me that I wanted to not just blog but write and get paid for it . So I said to myself “im young and free let me move to NY and see what the Big Apple has to offer a Vegas chick.” I made the move June 2013 and never looked back and THANK GOD my sister came for the ride cause I wouldn’t have done it alone. Now my email is filled with event invitations ……but am I happy? Did I make a mistake moving here? Is NY really whats it cracked up to be?

Stay Tuned

But I will say I came , I Saw , I Conquered! I really found myself and learned about what path I really want to take in a life …..with that being said I don’t have to live in New York to live the dream …..im Living , Im happy and im doing what I love. Anyone reading this is a dream
