I’m no beauty queen, I’m just beautiful me

Lyrics Are The Story Of My life

Make-up can make you look pretty on the outside but it wont help if you’re ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up. 

– Audrey Hepburn

Be yourself. It’s such a vague adage.  So if you want to be yourself, in every sense of the word, be unique. Accept that some days you’re the pigeon, and that some days you are the statue.  It’s just simple as breathing. People might raise eyebrows and even make fun, but as long as you can shrug and say “Hey, that’s just me” and leave it at that, people will ultimately respect you for it, and you’ll respect yourself. Yes, sometimes it will hurt when you’re teased. Just learn to ignore it. While this can be very difficult, and far easier said than done, try your best to flick it off your shoulder. Life’s too short to waste time on pretense. Laugh, be merry…

Now see, Miz RetroStank is so many different things (aren't we all?), but namely, she IS a Chistian, wife, mother, light, poetess, songwriter, actress, fashion show coordinator, scriptwriter, freethinker, artist, ATLien, and a weirdo with a love for culture and healing. She wants you to know that you can BE, DO, and HAVE anything and everything through Christ! She is native to the third coast, specifically the Southern kingdoms of Arkansas and Georgia. Sweet as pie, good as gold, and free as a bird, she is the only girl of three chill'un, and lawd, did that make for some imagination and shopaholic tendencies. Her father was an Army man and her mama is an infinitely enthusiastic and loving lady. In any case, exposure to different places, expectation of excellence, and a homeopathic childhood environment, majorly tilted her towards uniqueness; she was THAT girl who wore a dragon-print dress with a mandarin collar one day and a funky TLC-inspired look complete with ponytails and barrettes the next. So, by now, you're understanding that she is all about the spice of life. So sit back, buckle your seat-belt, and enjoy "the Funky ride all around the world" (in the words of Outkast).
