FAB Woman Making History: Oprah Winfrey

28 Feb

Normally, these posts are started with, “Meet (insert FAB One here)”. But who hasn’t met Oprah Winfrey yet?

A living embodiment of the American Dream, Aunt Oprah has demolished race and gender barriers her whole life. From rising above her troubled childhood, thriving despite being a teen parent (her son died soon after being born)  overcoming drug use, advancing in television despite being FAB in an area and location where being FAB wasn’t considered fabulous, being one of the most generous philanthropists the world has ever seen. 

She was the world’s first FAB billionaire, and the first FAB woman to own a television network.

There are many lessons to be learned from her life, and she always has a positive pearl of wisdom to share on her shows and in interviews. She encourages us all to ‘live our best life’, and she lives that motto every day.

Do you love Oprah as much as we do? Tell us about it in the comments!

FAB Woman Making History: Chanel Iman

27 Feb

Meet Chanel Iman.

Even if you didn’t know her name, you have probably seen her face on TV modeling in The Victoria’s Secret fashion show, or on a magazine at the grocery store, or on the runway modeling for the world’s top designers.

She is currently the most successful African American model, and made history in 2007 as the youngest person to appear on the cover of Vogue. She is also the first black model to walk in a Gucci fashion show for eight years.

The fashion industry is notorious for it’s lack of diversity in high fashion photos and runway shows, and not just with ethnicity. There is still a lot of work to be done in embracing different body types, which she is an advocate for.

She also does her share of charity work, and helps mentor teen girls who are moving from foster care into society.

Now that’s a FAB look!

Snow Day Reading from K.P. Smith

20 Feb

Author K.P. Smith has created a character by the name of Kendra who I’m sure every FAB girl and woman can identify with. The spunky heroine is one of those characters that you can’t help but see a part of yourself in. Because Kendra is so relatable, you will want to keep reading about her life and cheering for her as she navigates the ups and downs of her life.

The story tackles some important themes; family dynamics, friendship, loss, and puppy love. There are laughs with the dialogue Kendra has with her friends and family, and also some drama when there’s fights with friends and tense moments when Kendra and her sister witness the relationship with their mom and dad unravel.

The book is a very easy read, and suitable for middle grade students and up. As an adult, I was very taken in by the story and will be waiting  for the sequel to come out!

More information about the book and author can be found here.
