  • Publishers Greeting

    Well Family, a new year is almost upon un. So much has happened since we started on this fantastic voy-

    age we call Black Pearl. A lot of successes and a few failures. But we have always maintained our dig-

    nity through the many obstacles that weve encountered. If youre able to read a copy of Black Pearl, that probably means that you are one of the more for-tunate and blessed amongst us. So many of our fellow brethren doesnt have the means or capabilities to pick up a copy of Black Pearl and experience all it has to offer. For too many life is just a struggle to sur-

    vive and hold on to some form of normalcy and dignity.

    As we sit and rejoice through this holiday season with our many family and friends, please dont forget to think about the thousands in our very own community that wont be feeling the same joy as you. Far too many will just be in the streets and shelters trying to survive. Many have no idea where they will

    lay their heads tonight or where their next meal will come from.

    For those of us with little children, when Christmas morning arrives and we go through the tradi-

    tion of watching our kids open the many gifts under the beautiful tree, please remember that there are so

    many children that will be opening nothing. No tree, no gifts, no hope for so many.

    As we all make our New Years Resolutions about losing weight, learning a new language or what-

    ever you lie to yourself about every year at this time, lets just promise ourselves to do more for the less fortunate in 2011. Many charities and shelters really need our help and support. Even if you cant give money, your time and encouragement can be just as valuable. Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Love You All

  • F or a lot of us, winter is just around the corner. So its time to take some extra care to be

    sure that you have the right tools to

    properly beautify yourself and protect

    your skin during these colder


    Make sure that you winterize your

    skin and beauty care regime with

    these must-have items.

    1) Moisturizers. This means a

    moisturizer not only for your

    face, but for your hands, your

    feet, your legs, your arms

    every where! Simply apply an oil

    -based moisturizer or lotion to

    your skin after each and every

    shower and you will keep your

    skin hydrated and better pro-

    tected against the cold.

    2) Lip Balm. Winter is the time of year where almost everyone

    falls prey to chapped lips, but it doesnt have to be that way. Be

    sure to pick a great lip balm that will hydrate your lips and pro-

    tect them from such things as cold temperatures, wind, dry air

    and also moist air. The best kind of lip balms are waxy and can

    be applied smoothly to the lips.

    TIP: Petroleum jelly can also be used as a great lip balm. The

    good thing about petroleum jelly is that it can be used for a

    number of things. If you find yourself suffering from dry or

    cracked skin during the colder months, such as cracked skin

    on your elbows or feet, apply petroleum jelly over top of the

    skin. Your skin will be moisturized and crack

    -free in just a few days!

    3) Dont forget the sunscreen! One fatal

    error that women often make is believing

    that because the sun may not be shining as

    brightly during these winter months that they

    do not need protection from the suns harm-

    ful rays. WRONG! The suns rays are still

    coming through the clouds, and the reflec-

    tion of any light off of white or lighter sur-

    faces (such as snow) will cause even more

    damage to your skin. Make sure you use a

    moisturizer or apply a separate sunscreen to

    your face that has an SPF of 15 or higher.

    4) Exfoliate regularly. As your skin tends to

    become drier during the winter time, its es-

    pecially important to take the time to exfoli-

    ate not only your face, but your whole body.

    Invest in a quality body wash that includes an exfoliating com-

    ponent, or use a tool that will help slough off those dead skin


    5) Body butter. Okay, so this is a bit of an indulgence to help

    keep your skin supple and soft during those harsh winter

    months, but it really is a treat that is well deserved! Body butter

    is even better than using a lotion or moisturizer because it is

    thicker and can actually soothe any irritated skin. After you ap-

    ply body butter to your skin, you will notice that your skin will

    actually stay smooth all day long! You dont have to spend a ton of money to winterize your beauty routine. Make sure you take the time to indulge your skin a bit more this winter and enjoy healthier, smoother skin.

    Take these steps to head off damage to

    your skin!

    Designer Jacquie Barbavian stands behind Detroit model Carol

    Towns in Downtown Pontiac.

    All photos shot on location at

    O n a Sunny Saturday morning in November I met up with a group of mod-

    els that have forever changed my percep-

    tions about what Detroit Fashion could

    be about. In a newly renovated Boutique

    in Downtown Pontiac, Designer Jacquie

    Barbavian and her gorgeous models

    wore out two camera batteries as they

    rocked some of the most original fash-

    ions around.

    Sophisticated elegance was the

    theme of the shoot. An array of fabrics

    rich in color and texture. They are pro-

    fessionally sewn and crafted to the high-

    est standards.

    So ladies, if youre in search of the finest and most original fashions that
