Label Me…

Apricot Brown | August 4th, 2011 - 7:52 pm

Don't label me

I saw this while surfing. And it reminded me of how hard it can be to shed the labels others put upon us, especially when we’re on the path to self discovery. I often think about the labels I’ve worn to please or appease others and how insecure that made me feel. I’ve learned that the truest labels are the ones we create for ourselves. Nobody knows you, better than you know yourself! Labeling will never stop…which is why I created Apricot Brown:Miss Undefinable, a character who’s labels herself with major altitude. Her ever-changing set of personas, styles, cultures and philosophies are limitless, just like you. A shout out to all you boundless beauties. Label-ers… Try and confine that!

Apricot Brown loves Oh Land!

Apricot Brown | June 22nd, 2011 - 6:13 pm

I had the pleasure of meeting and watching Oh Land perform at a private showcase in an secret NYC location last week. Right before my eyes, a Native American Angel fluttered in from Copenhagen, stunning me and confirming my plight. I chucked as whispers traveled through the audience, dumbfounded by her ambiguous ethnicity. Which I can guarantee was intentional, love filled and an utter work of genius. Miss Oh Land’s angelic voice sashayed through the space, everyone fell under her spell as she belted out her new single “Son of a Gun”…An emancipating anthem of lost love.

Oh Land

Apricot Brown Loves Girl’s Prep Elementry

Apricot Brown | June 22nd, 2011 - 4:04 pm

Thanks to Empire Children’s after-school program at Girl’s Prep, I had the opportunity to meet and empower a wonderful group of fourth-sixth grade girls! The experience was a dream come true. They we’re so excited to discover a character that reflected their multidimensional mindset. As I watched them morph into Apricot Brown before my eyes, igniting a voice deep inside themselves… their spirits were revealed. Shiny and oh so bright, they jumped out of their seats and screamed with joy. ” I love being me! I love being me. I love being me!” vibrated through the halls of their school. And on their own volition they read in unison, reciting  Apricot Brown’s Remix Generation Mantra. They felt loved, celebrated and seen. We were all transformed. Thank You for doing for me… what I came to do for you. WOOO HOOO!
