bellahadid To my libra woman:
You taste like yin and talk like yang. You are not mortal, you are pleasure personified on a throne, in the corner among green palms. You’re exotic and you’re home. You have rubies bleeding from your neck.
She was born when the Sun was in Libra,
Charming, beautiful, full of vibrant air,
Being a child of Venus she shines in the heavens,
Enjoys art and music, admires loveliness,
Goddess of Love blessed her with fairness,
With her elegance and grace
She floats like a princess.
She is an artist, musician or gifted poetess.
Sensual, passionate, dazzling and seductive,
Mostly “In love with love”.

🎯 Please read and share! 🎯 Harlem’s own Grandma’s Place needs our help now! Donate via link in my bio!
Grandma’s Place (84 w. 120th st.) is a black-owned toy store in central Harlem filled with an array of toys and books aimed towards teaching the next generation.
It is owned by one of the sweetest women I’ve ever met, 81 year old, Dawn Harris-Martine, better known to the neighborhood as Grandma Dawn. For the past 20 years, she has curated an environment of learning and family fun and has been dubbed the unofficial grandmother for the neighborhood. As a retired New York City school teacher, Grandma Dawn spends her time running her business and handpicking toys and books to support and teach the Harlem community where she has raised her children and grandchildren.
Sadly, it has been impossible to make ends meet during the pandemic. When the government deemed the business as being "non-essential", it left Grandma's Place with no other option than being forced to close its doors while the rent continued to pile up.
The landlords are not relieving her past rent and while she’s been funding the business out of her own pocket for months... even years, she can’t sustain it. So please go visit her ASAP and spend $$$ so we can keep this iconic establishment open. If you are not in NYC and would still like to support, her granddaughter has set up a GoFundMe .
Thank you @joellegarguilo for putting me on! #momnpopdrop
