My name is Racquel Cooney I AM a 23 yr. Old singer, actor, writer (expressionist), current college student, and founder of thee "Beyond Peculiar Movement". Beyond Peculiar is a movement that encourages Individuals to be true to their AUTHENTIC selves whom God has created them to be. I am a true and firm believer of true representation, and that all representation should be rooted in authenticity. Authenticity is a derived reflection of PURE BEAUTY. LUSH PINK is the ultimate source of PURE, AUTHENTIC BEAUTY. It defies all conformity(ies) of what beauty should look like, and embraces the beauty in the eyes of the beholder. LUSH is where it's at hunty (lol) they embrace the KINKY, Love the CURLY, & also admire the STRAIGHT. So If I were to let the world in on a little secret it would simply be this, "I believe that the apple of every womans eye is LUSH PINK"
Below Is A Beautiful Poem written by Monique Echols (my beautiful mother). It epitomizes the beauty and strength of women, their beautiful hair textures, and the phenomenal products by LUSH PINK.
I know I’m cute!
Even if you can’t get with the style of my roots
Wearing my hair kinky and nappy
This is a sure sign that I am happy
Happy with who I am!
And I won’t hesitate to mention
How my hair draws such a crowd of attention
So, go ahead wear your hair fine
But don’t look down on mine
This hair is inherited from a powerful nation
This first look of the original creation
Oh… how you admire my woven weave
Wishing you could get the strings of your hair to cleave
This beauty is from a look you could only imagine
With styles created from all kinds of patterns
This hair is the best by far!
It can’t be imitated or produced from a jar
The hair that comes with many shades of skin
Light and dark browns, with a Mocha spin
Oh…what beauty radiates when I walk
My words are strong and assertive when I talk
Please don’t fear my flamboyant gear
Things aren’t always the way they appear
This hair does not define me
But it will sure leave a lasting impression behind me
It’s all a part of my eccentric nature
Making me unique from every creature!
