WELCOME back to MUSICAL SUNDAYS where I'm gonna be throwing you back in time... well, as far back as i can go (I'm only a 90s kid you know). sing with me.

  AS promised SADE with SWEETEST TABOO. she has an amazing voice. she is beautiful and she knows how to to make you feel. i love her (in case you haven't already noticed). this isn't part of the entry as such its more of a tribute really.

  WHAT would an RnB throwback be without these guys? BOYS II MEN with A SONG FOR MAMA. i love them, especially Michael McCarey who was the base vocalist. he makes my life! it was mothers day a few weeks ago and I'm dedicating this song to my mum. love this song. it sums it all up in a few words. my mum is my rock and she always encourages me to follow my passions. she is probably the biggest driving force behind the blog. love you mummy!!

  MR TOO DAMN GOOD!! this song makes you believe in the existence of true love and that true love is for everyone if you just open your eyes to it. its soothes me and i think Gerald Levert outdid himself here. may he RIP and may his music live on forever..

  BREAKUP songs probably don't get any better than this. i love Neyo and if it were up to me (it actually is, lol) all his old music would be up here. SO SICK stays winning. i just hope I'm not going to be singing it while in tears anytime soon.

  YOU didn't really think i was going to leave this out did you? DILEMMA by KELLY AND NELLY was my childhood, is my teenage years and is going to be the death of me. no one can deny the fact that even today when you hear this song you get the urge to sing along.

  THIS is one of those songs that made 2005 beautiful. i was 9 then so it doesn't really hold any special memories but it was a firm favourite in the house and growing up i began to understand why. DESTINY'S CHILD CATER 2 U is a reminder to all ladies out there that sometimes your man needs to be pampered as well.

THAT'S all i have SMEARS! next week there will be a lot of posts because i will be out everyday and so inspiration can hit me at anytime. on other news i finally hit 1000 page views if only that could be translated into follows. *hint hint* do follow at @S_Lipstick on Twitter and like the page on Facebook for regular updates

I'm not even going to apologise for my silence because you already know how bad i feel. today there won't be any pictures of me or people that i love. just a bunch of random thoughts.

FOR those of you who don't know, I'm born on the 22nd of February so that makes me a Pisces. i generally don't take horoscopes seriously, they are fun to read and all, but they rarely even make sense. Like for real i don't know why I'm supposed to be smiling if Venus and Uranus circle the moon and whatever, but i love to give credit where its due. I've come to the realisation that its when i read my horoscope that i get the best AHA! moments. like today i discovered that in the Pisces sign the fish are always swimming in opposing directions.

FIRST i thought it was just because it made a really cool sign but then the AHA moment came, its because my personality is very contradictory and often we Pisces feel a million emotions all at once. and so while this post has nothing to do with zodiac signs, reading my horoscope today made me feel so much better about my week.

I've been feeling so confused these past few days. I'm happy and reasonably enthusiastic when other people are around, when I'm alone its another story. I'm laughing one minute, in tears the next. reminiscing while trying very hard to forget. I'm gushing and and I'm angry. for Pete's sake if you could eat your feelings, this week would've tasted like a very shitty (excuse my french) custard. it could be because its that time of the month or it could be because there is a thin line between sane and bipolar. however, I'm choosing to just blame the stars.

I had a long hard look at myself after i came across these pics and every bit of them is true. while its very critical, there are some really great things about being of my kind. 

I guess these feelings are validated and justified in their existence. does it mean i always want to feel this way? no. that's not it at all. its just that on those days when i do feel like this i shouldn't be judged and i shouldn't judge myself because its the Pisces way. 

THIS whole post probably doesn't make sense to you, but it makes sense to me and i think that's the most important thing because self love is what i was trying to achieve here. sorry you had to read all of that just for me to come to such a conclusion, but how can i lead my SMEARS forward if i feel stuck. 

BESIDES i did warn you that it would just be me mumbling on and on.

SO whats your star sign SMEAR? has the zodiac ever lifted your spirits? leave a comment, tweet me AND email me..lets discuss you for once.
