The Skinnery

It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences…

I’m an Exquisite Black Queen! I like, love, and celebrate myself. I don’t fit society’s beauty standards, but I’m beautiful to me. I know my worth and I respect who I am as a woman. I’ve got beauty on the inside and that makes me empowered and powerful. I’m fearless and comfortable in my own skin. I’ve got flaws, but I’m still confident! This Queen right here is flawed yet phenomenal, valuable and unique! – Stephanie Lahart

Love Looks Not With The Eyes, But With The Mind..

Come live with me, and be my love,
And we will some new pleasures prove
Of golden sands, and crystal brooks,
With silken lines, and silver hooks

My true love hath my heart, and I have his…

 

Loving someone is a leap of faith
You are giving them your heart 
and trusting them not to break it…
No matter what happens
I will still never regret making that leap for you

..You Marry The Person Who You Cannot Live Without… (LuxeBox August 2017)

 

We seek the comfort of another.
Someone to share and share the life we choose.
Someone to help us through the
neverending attempt to understand ourselves.
And in the end,
someone to comfort us along the way.

– Marlin Finch Lupus

 

I normally would have an unboxing video to go along with this post but I simply didn’t have the time or the drive to record a video at the moment. If I record one in the next week I will add it to this post, but I at least wanted to get a picture with the amazing items from this month.

If you didn’t join the Luxe Box in time for the month and you would like to get the items, there are two different ways that you can get it. First you can join the Luxe Box group on the 15’th of the month after it’s been delivered for double the price until 12am of the 16’th of that month or Secondly you can join when enrollment begins on the 1’st of the month and go to the Luxe Box Boutique and buy any of the previous Luxe Boxes. All of this information is listed on the Luxe Box FAQ. All previously released Luxe Boxes are available at the Luxe Box Boutique for the cost of 2000L. To receive the latest Luxe Boxes, it costs 1500L to join the group every month before the 15’th when enrollment ends and the box is delivered. To see what’s in the boxes of previous months, check out the Luxe Box Catalog.

You can find out even more information about Luxe Box; such as designers for the month & contests to win a free Luxe Box on their WebsiteFacebook & Flickr

..Idle Summer Day..

 

Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds. – Regina Brett

I Don’t Want to be Saved…

 

The only people for me are the mad ones: the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who… burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles. – Jack Kerouac

Inner ‘Mad’ Queen

“I have sinned and must atone, must parade my shame before the eyes of every beggar in the city. They think that this will break my pride, that it will make an end to me, but they are wrong.” – Cersei’s thoughts before her walk of atonement – A Dance with Dragons

“When you play the game of thrones you win or you die. There is no middle ground.” – Cersei Lannister

 

With Game of Thrones 7’th season premiere fast approaching on July 16’th, 2017; I thought that it was time to embrace my ‘Inner Mad Queen’ a bit for a photo. Many people know that I am a dire hard Game of Thrones fan and have been waiting for the new season. I will hopefully be doing a Game of Thrones themed vlog within the next 3 -4 days; showing off all of the different Game of Thrones themed items that I own; one of which you see in this picture by Alchemy that they created for The Secret Affair‘s April round back in 2015 which was Thrones themed. It’s something that I that I love so I figured why not blog it.
