FASHION FRIDAY-Emily Eckert

Emily Eckert 4
Industrial in her thoughts, she stands on the edge of her platform visualizing the concepts of her dreams. Looking North, she receives confirmation from the creative being that exists. Powerful in her stance, the clouds meets the imagination of overflowing streams. Visualizing her future, she foresees emulation but she knows her destiny is to ascend to great heights by using her voice to move clouds for the sun to shine.
Emily Eckert
She looks down to confirm reality and as she puts thoughts into motion, she dissimilates her appearance to use her voice to change. Zealous in her actions, she’s eager yet patient to bring her visions to those who seek elation.
Emily Eckert 14
Flattering in her walk, she pursues nobility. With every step of grace, steel flats bounce back against her feet, making noise as she descends to where her goals lay to be grasped by the antiquity of ingenuity.
Emily Eckert 20
Pure essence composes her body to breathe. Substance of energy infuses her to open to life and then freedom envelopes her mind and soul. Symbols of deliverance, exempts her from the quarrels of deliberation as she no longer has to think cautiously of each step she takes. With no signs of contention, she knows it is time for peace and tranquility to absolve any thoughts of hindrance.
Emily Eckert 17
When the clouds path opens, The manifestation of unencumbered skies allows her to lead her retinue of followers fearlessly to cleaned pathways. With full passion, her course of action is guided from above but her devotion from the notion of having the privilege to be first to step, gives her the common sanctity of leadership.

FASHION FRIDAY’S with Katina Welch

Pure with an addictive flare, she embodies the signs of Hebe. Her concepts and thoughts are strong and powerful yet she caters to those who mean the most to her. She bears the nectar used to serve her counterparts, sharing the ever flowing fountain of youth.

Her flowers bloom and confidence rise with the days sun, apricating while sharing her source at the hands of her vessel. By the end of her days, her flowers still bloom as bright as the beginning ’til the end.

With her energy never bellowing, her croon remains silent as the transparency of her heart and actions pours into others to reflect who she is, never forgetting where she started or what she came from.

FASHION FRIDAY’S with Tierra Benton

EARTH takes her crown. Her first thoughts are unknown to man but she knows the goals and challenges that’s set before her, yet she strides with confidence that her ground is fertile, strong, and resilient. All hope is never defeated by the feet that walks against her because the gold chain that holds the many keys to success are swarmed around her bones, embracing the lock that holds everything together in one click.

The metal cuffs that holds her wrists are guards of protection from the many hands that want to dig into her mind. As she protects her frame of minds, she allows them to walk amongst her beings as she will soon guide them to the strength that’s bestowed within her womb. No feathers on earth can shield her from how great and powerful she is, only used to shield the distractions so that they too can focus on the greatness of her existence.

Just think! How powerful you could be if you succumb to your spiritual inner being within the womb of the earth, you too will become the Queen you were seeded to be. Remember, not every seed will survive. Some will fall before they are planted and some will rise, like the plant when the morning sun calls it to awaken, to be fuel for the bees that go back to their home to feed their colony.

Be the earthly warrior you were meant to be. Never be afraid to challenge yourself and others to be the flower they were meant to bloom into because the warrior never quit, he just keeps going with no regrets.
