It was a great pleasure and achievement in getting Charli this opportunity to MODEL with Tata Naka at the official ON schedule London Fashion week at ICA Gallery.

The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) is an artistic and cultural centre on The Mall in London, just off Trafalgar Square. It is located within Nash House, part of Carlton House Terrace, near the Duke of York Steps and Admiralty Arch. It contains galleries, a theatre, two cinemas, a bookshop and a bar.

 

This is a feedback that Wari LACE get back from Charli:

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Wari Lace. She displays such a professional and yet compassionate attitude towards us models. Whenever I am represented by Wari Lace, I feel immensely comfortable, as I know that I am in good hands. Not only does she attend the jobs booked to over see things, but she also attends castings. I recommend the services of Wari Lace to all models that are serious about their craft. I feel so elated that Wari Lace assisted me in getting booked for the Tata Naka presentation show. It is my first on schedule show that I have done for London Fashion Week. The show went extremely well and I have received so much exposure all over social media and in publications such as BFC, Vogue, Noctis and Hello! India just to name a few.” Charli

Just in case you missed it, here is a snapshot of Tata Naka Presentation for Autumn/Winter 2016 at London Fashion Week by British Fashion Council.

If you are a business or product company who wishes to collaborate with Wari LACE, please do not hesitate to contact me to be able to discuss further into how I can be of a service to you.

What do you do next, to keep going or quit?

Quit – Quietly United In Togetherness

To not give up

Question:

Why do we have two hands?

Is it not to guide each people other hands with your own hands as togetherness?

Sometime it not about following other people times, as they may not always be on your timetable or routine.

smallsteps

One step at a time in your own space of time is what you need, so within that small progress is happening without you visualising it and while you waiting to see the changes, you will be able to have time out to refocus as little at a time.

The term used: “It business and not to take it personally”, is a statement that needs to be revised.

Business is a personal matter as you are the business and you are proceeding within the business with passion, which come with feeling of loving what you want to do, so business do have some personally element within it.

Working with each other, there should be respectful behavior of conduct of approach within the work ethos.

Having a business in the early stage of growth is very remote and can be harsh on your soul and time.

Starting a business is not easy, it can and will alienate your friends, as they will see and think that you are travelling upward without them. This will cause a complexion feeling from them that you have left them behind, which is not the case.

The problem is that in the past you have been leisurely behind as it was not your time in whatever form and you and them had no problems within your friendship but as soon as you have step out in front it will became a problem. But what they do not understand is that you were all growing at different time and in different ambition and their growth may or had come to an end at a different stages and now it was your time to grown ahead.

Collaborate-for-success

Since they are your friends, you would have felt that there were and would be opportunities for them within their individual abilities to have a position within each other businesses but due to egotistical feeling they do not want be seen at a lower status than you. So the bottom line is that they will not support you fully to what you want them to do, so you have to be aware that you will lose a lots of friends and some friends will not even reinvested in monetary or time that you have invested into them. This is now called business term – not friendship.

Good versus badThere are good side of business and bad side of business as well.

You will have to be strong all the time and to control any stress and anger management that you may have.  You will have to handle it the best you can. Yes this may and can all affect you in a huge capacity and it would not matter if you are doing a great job or not!

 

What you will miss out for having a business:

  • Not much time for socially
  • Not enough time for entertaining with your children
  • No extra available monetary money to spend
  • No holidays

What is the end result?

  • Enjoying  creating your passion and working for yourself
  • Inspiring to help others into giving back to the next generation

Keep On Moving.

We hear quite a lot in the saying to keeping taking one step at a time, even if it small steps, you are still travelling in whatever you are doing. By taking small steps means that you are still achieving one step further to where you were original before.

We need to understand that our paths has been prepared and open for you by God and that God will provided you with what and whom you will need to help you on your travels. Even if you take a different path, the steps that you have taken has also been redirected by God in his plans to get you back on track.

So when you hear the saying when you meet someone that there must be a reason for your path meeting, yes there was a reason and whether it one second to a lifetime. Please embrace it, as it is a sign that you have been given, a guidance to what and whom is in your camp to encourage you on your way forward.

There will be times that you will have lows and highs times, do not worry too much about it, your path will changes. Just like the sea, you have to get to land somehow eventually, the sea cannot go on forever! YOU have to BELIEVE in yourself.

So be encouraged to keep on travelling and networking with people who are on your own wavelength with the saying that you move with the same mindset and not giving up is for a reason. Keep the faith!

Honest talk which results to relationship of love.

In celebration of Mother’s Day (2012), Jada Pinkett Smith sat down with her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones for Red Table Talk, a discussion on love, life, fame and family. In the first episode the ladies talk about what it means to be a good mother, the guilt Adrienne feels for her drug use and not being the best mother to Jada and Willow’s regrets over being famous.“My belief is that communication is the best way to create strong relationships,” Pinkett said. “Just for people to be able to sit down together and have a conversation, that’s the power of love.”

On my (Wari) own opinion as a mother this is a very beautiful and powerful insight for the third generation into having a conversation is a true honesty comments from the video.   Having this kind of conversation is very hard as different generations have difficult culture generations upbringing. Some older generations, when they were children were brought up to be seen and not heard and this has caused many hidden questions that we could never or not talk about but just to be on guard to what you can say and do without crossing the boundary line of respect.

Even when you are of age, there is still an element of things that will still not be determined for you to know of. So this third generation have broken the barrier and they can freely speak to how they feel without boundary but they need to understand that the older generation needs time to adjusts to be able to feel free into converse into anything without crossing the line of respect. This is a very emotion subject that will be of value to all if this is all done tastefully.

Red Table Talk encourages us all to take the time and have a conversation with the special women in our lives– whether it be a few minutes or a few hours. Jada hope that other families are encouraged to participate in similar dialogues with their own family members.

In remembrance – The History of Hot Comb.

Walter_Sammons_hot_comb

 

Walter Sammons (1890 – 1973)  was a inventor for an enhanced patent for the hot comb. Walter Sammons of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania received U.S. patent #1,362,823 on December 21, 1920 for an improved comb that straightened hair. According to Walter Sammons’ patent he invented a heated comb that removed kinks from the hair.

The hot comb (also known as a straightening comb) is a metal comb that is used to straighten moderate or coarse hair to create a smoother hair texture.

The hot comb was an invention original developed in France as a way for women with coarse curly hair to achieve a fine straight look traditionally modelled by historical Egyptian women. However, it was Annie Malone who first patented this tool, while her apprentice and former worker, Madam CJ Walker widened the teeth.

The main function of the hot comb is to be heated and used directly to straighten the hair from the roots. The hot comb was very good particularly for Afro hair who hair was coarse.

There are different hot combs that have been created. The first hot comb was invented to be place directly on heat to get hot. It was placed directly on the cooker stove or on wood fires until now in 20th century it was finally replaced to be electrically heated.

It is not uncommon, especially when using a traditional hot comb, to burn scalp or damage the hair. A hot comb is often heated to over 65 degrees celsius, therefore if not careful severe burns and scarring can occur. The hot comb that you use directly on the stove or on fires are different from the ones that you electrically heated as the coating of the hot comb is different and by using this particular hot comb in the original way can singe your hair.

 

There are creams that you would use straight on the hairshafts to protect the hair when hot combing. When using the cream, the hot comb would produce smokes from the heat of the hair, the cream would seal the cream in the hair by making it shiny and healthy.

Many African American and women of other races, still uses hot combs because of forming of straightening is temporary and less damaging to the hair if done properly. Today, hot combs are still used by many African American salons and families as an alternative to chemical hair straightening.

After slavery the hot comb was a very controversial invention because many debated on whether it was beneficial or hurtful to the black community. There were some African Americans who believed that the hot comb damaged the African American community because it made the community submissive to the ‘white ideal image’ of beauty and disregarded African American culture. Others believed that efforts like hair straightening would boost their social and economic status. This mindset continued throughout the 20th century.

On their shoulder’s we stand!

Our basic right as a woman is to breastfeed, whether in public or not.

I am very confused with all this episodes and antagonism situation of women not being able to breastfeed their newborn babies in public.

Breastfeeding is best!

Let go back a bit in the late 80’s and 90” we were pursued and persuaded to breastfeed as best instead of using bottles to feed our babies.

As a young mother in both era’s, it was what we were told in advertisement campaigns that it was best for the baby and also for yourself to gain back your stomach muscle as the womb retracts back quicker due to breastfeeding.

Modelling - Wari LACE

For me it was a happy moment to be able to breastfeed my children. My first child I could only breastfeed for 2 months and then it was bottled SMA Gold, as I could not produce enough milk for what she wanted to eat. For my second child I breastfeed longer to 8 months and then on to the bottle.  I breastfeed longer simply because he had Eczema and it was suggested that it was best to try to breastfeed for long to help with the condition and to this day he does not have Eczema and also with the added bonus when breastfeeding that it helped my stomach to get tightened quickly into giving me a flat stomach which resulted in my stomach looking like I had not recently given birth.

 

What some people do not understand is that not every babies can have a bottle, so what do you want to do, starve the babies?

 

 

You see you cannot win, let say that the baby is crying for a long period and it not his nappies but he is hungry but you have fed him before you went out, what do you do? let the baby cry? If the mother does that then she will be reported to be an unfit mother and there will be people who would be talking behind her back so no win but it ok to make her feel bad in her special day of achievement in what she has dreamed of having a healthy baby for her to be pushed into postnatal depression and not bonding with her baby because of the stress.

baby-crying

This is a concern and very disturbing to hear what is going on, if I was in the position again of having a baby in these time of days, I will still be breastfeeding in public to give my baby a fighting chance of healthy antibodies in his body.

The other issue is that the mother needs to get rid of the producing milk, as her breast’s will be full, which then will result to her being embarrassed by her breast’s leaking.

So ok, the baby is hungry what do we do now carried kettle to boil water to make milk every mins of the day as we can not have milk ready and stored for too long, which will result to the baby having bad tummy and vomiting!

What is the issue, is it because it’s a sexual issue?

First and foremost breasts was given to us for enabling life and sexual pleasure was for the last result! You need to remember you would have been breast feed by your own mothers to give you a health chance of life, so please think before you react as you are disrespecting all mothers! If it’s a problem then move! You do not need to see the baby being fed even if it being covered.

You have no idea what it does to you as a mother to not be able to breastfeed as some mothers cannot even breastfeed if they tried. But it so ok to displayed breasts for all to see for pleasure but not to keep babies alive? Very confused!

You have no idea to how this make a mother feels to know that she can only breastfeed for a short period of the baby’s life for you to take that away from an enjoyment of having a baby!

As a woman and a human being this is our right! And we cannot and should not be ashamed to not have this right!

Stand your ground!

Don’t feel that you should sit in a public toilet to breastfeed. You wouldn’t eat in there, so don’t feel that your baby should.

The good news is the law is on your side and no-one has the right to be made to feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public. In fact, the Equality Act 2010 has made it illegal for anyone to ask a breastfeeding woman to leave a public place such as a cafe, shop or public transport.

Why NOT to Mimic incorrect writing!

Have you wondering why some people have problems with writing and reading!

Having these problems is not about laziness or not understanding the correct written English. it about what is going on in their head.cerebroymente

These kinds of people have so much creativity going on in their head that they are swiftly so much information along in their own mind to what they are thinking, reading and writing. The information jumps as they have thought that they have written or said that they have not notices that the other peoples have not reached further within their conversation. When this happens it create for them to sometime backtrack, which sometime results to them forgetting where and what they have said or written that they have skipped to the next chapter!

It not that they do not care about the other person not fully understanding or caring about what they are doing, it just that they are so exciting in what they are creating. Even when they have slowed down it the same information as to what the person sees in their mind is with the original thoughts.

Also the way the person writes is in their own individual languages of understanding and they may have checked it a hundred time but it how they feel and see that is why they have written that way and not because it should be predominantly correct in the English literature book! They have written to say it in their own particular style way to how their want it to get across.pen-handwriting-ftr

So please try to read between the line to what is coming across into what the person is saying instead of intimidating and mocking them in their way of writing! Nobody is perfect!

What is Education??

Everybody’s ideas of education is different, well as long as you are learning it is all great!

classroom_resources_400

Good or bad, television is a massive source of learning, especially if you speak other languages apart from English.  It’s the vision of images with sounds for you to pronounce the wording in whatever language! It like when you where a toddler, when you were watching your parents making sounds that you copied and then gradually understand what the true meaning were as time went on.

Back in the days, television was a source of immense information and not too damaging for children (thanks to Mary Whitehouse) but today it a different source of information of damage!

old-television-550x310

The main source of learning which was drummed into me by my father was to read a book! Books, these days is not a source of learning for the next generation, which is a shame.

Some of us may not having many elders around us to give us the true meaning of life but instead of just guessing and given wrong information, we need to encourages people in whatever level of knowledge to show their knowledge and help the next generation by getting them to invested in their chosen studies or careers as the TEACHERS of today cannot do it all on their own!

As they said education cost money so what is wrong in investing in your future! Nothing is free in life! If you do not have the expenditure then sharing and given support to each other will be a start in moving forward to your goal! So do not close the DOOR to whom who want to learn!
