"Got these made recently… I love your page and what it stands for. As a darker skinned Black woman, people either talked about my complexion or told me how pretty i was "for a dark skinned girl."  I still hear it til this very day. I now have two little girls of my own…I aim to teach them beauty comes from within and also any shape, form, or complexion! They have to know they are #prettyperiod." 
Thank you Ja’nee! We’ll have some #PrettyPeriod gear for your girls to rock soon enough! ;-)
