I will have to admit, until recently, I've not been a big fan of "scandal" aka the Fixer, the turning point came one fateful evening, when due to boredom, i decided to watch an episode.

The thing or rather person that caught my immediate attention was OLIVIA POPE, to be concise, her clothes.After Michelle Obama, the character of Olivia pope, played by Kerry Washington has to be the my definition of a classy lady( asides the fact that she's the president's mistress of course )

From her perpetual perfect hair ( which must be a weave or an amazing wig), Nude makeup, beautiful clothes, understated yet expensive jewelry and accessories, down to her always heeled feet (never flats), Olivia scores a 10/ 10 in my books.

                              * It's handled* 

These pictures don't really show off the awesomeness of the clothes but you get the picture, I think this style appeals to the Lawyer in me. The stylist's definitely doing a great job as the character hardly wears bright colours, mostly pastels, neutrals and white and she's still able to look good, big ups!
*Kerry's face/ facial expressions can be scary but hey she just hooked a hot American-Nigerian ball player, so she must be doing somethings right, riiight.

Hope y'all enjoyed this, please do leave a comment,

Seated here
Surroundings strange but familiar
Something different but normal
Never have I experienced such
Never will i experience such again

Laughter really is a balm
In the most uncomfortable of situations
It smooths out the pain, the anger
the frustrations, the need to weep

Where i find myself now;
a result of choices and decisions
made by me,
then, without a care for repercussions

Yesterday, a week or a year ago
is the clay of our today and tomorrow
God is the potter,
he shapes and forms
I am the designer,
where i press my hand,
there will be a dent.

I wrote this a while back, when i was an avid writer, then, i would literally be inspired by any and everything, it was so awesome,my juices no longer flow so readily  but i think i still got it ( wide smile).

Hope someone can relate to this and feel it as much as i do.

pls,pls, pls leave a comment , so i'll know these views are real, thanks guys
