Naturally Tan VS. Artifical Tanning/Spray Tans

Because people of color already have what adds hue to their earthly bodies, tanning un naturally, or laying under the sun "sun bathing" or spraying tanning (laying in artificial light for long periods of time) is not necessary. Brown/Black people do tan just already have a natural tan that can naturally be enhanced just by walking under the sun, going about their day! This is why having Melanin is so great! It's no need to try to go seek the Sun, if the Sun's out guess what? Your skin color is being activated! Love the skin you are in & Love the Sun!

Different about you!

There is something that I just absolutely love about myself and that is my eyes. I think my eyes separates me from every other girl & that is what is different about me so it makes me unique. 

I had a bestfriend who had pretty hair too & loved it! She always wore it down & always got compliments about her hair. 

These things make us different & unique. It makes us pretty even if we don't feel it physically

We all have something unique & different about us, What's different about you?

The Perfect Model

Is the perfect Model to you the girl you see in Magazine's who look the most opposite of you? To me, they were when I was young and didn't know no better. Now, that I can see a bit more clear I understand that who they "model" to be like - really is me, my style & my peoples. Making us "The Perfect Models", but who gets that?

The perfect Model for you, any Melanic Women&Girl, is the women or girl who resembles & reflects you. The perfect model  is the one in love with who she is and who her people was and she displays it by showing it off to the world by culturally self expressing  with, but not limited to, accessories, custom designs of what she is: Tribal, tattooing/body art etc.  The perfect model is not the one we see in mainstream, posing with golden locks and  over sized men coats modeling a watch. These are paid models to sell you products, not the perfect model to life. Those aren't models; they are paid to influence your fashion sense although, the initiative ideas to their designs are usually developed by Melanical staff, the only difference is the name on the label. It is important to identify with your culture  by language and appearance much like their customs & tradition those in America's "Melting pot" have taken on.

Mainstream society, like music, tv, ads,  want the general public to buy their product but just about always cast white females, the fairest of them all, to model their products. Why do you then, purchase their merchandise if you find this to be valid truth? Why do we continue to watch Reality or singing shows (American Idol, X Factor, So you think you can dance) when we know they will be bias and give the mediocre "wanna be's" praises why making the original XI work just a tab bit harder but "don't sing too good just have fun with it". Why do they continue to show un equality & minority inferior-ism but still market to us? IT'S SIMPLE. BECOS WE WILL BUY 

Buy Melanic! Try it out! May cost a little more but your putting back into your community.. That's where it begins & where you play a part in becoming A PERFECT Model to the girls you "Model" for. 

Who are you? .

Who are you & what do you reflect? How do you become the person you are? What inspires you to take chances & claim your Individualism? What makes you add hue to your face? The colors you choose for your eye shadow, lip color. The jewelry or accessories you wear. The clothing you dress in & the way you wear your hair. Who are you & what do you reflect? Is this mere our "personality" or is it much more than that? Does your "Individualism" represent an inner power, one that even systematically can't be controlled or dictated?

Your Self Expressional ways represents power.

That represents the power you have for self. The power you demand as you allow your inner creator to create your styles that reflects your outer. Who are you?

Melanic People

What is Melanic? Melanic is someone who has Melanin & displays it. Melanic is someone who is happy with who & what they are, usually by displaying it unconsciously; for instance, by a natural talent to dance, be rhythmic, rap/rhythm, artistic visuals, painters, performers, singers, etc. Those Melanic people are the ones who are naturally gifted, no training, classes or teachers needed to evolve their natural born talent. Those in the Hip Hop Community display illuminated gifts of exhibiting their Melanism. How you exhibit yourself? Tell it!

Why does it matter who designs Tees or Clothing in general?

It doesn't matter necessarily who are the designers of brands. But it matters when the owners of these brands have Melanic designers on board however, ads and spreads don't display that. Instead they show white "models" who are dressed in creative, "hip hop" or "urban" clothing and/or have Melanic characteristics (big coil curls, or enhanced lips and/or tanned pretty Melaninated skin). We are not the minority in Music nor in Fashion and instead of trying to "find" that one brand, I decided Why not be that brand! I design it, Me! Who looks like you!

Does it matter to you who cloth you wear? Do you wear the "label" or the "designer"? <How would you know if what you wear is the "brand" because you have not met the designer (yet!)

Nice to meet you!
