#WomanCrushWednesday: Check out 10 Red carpet looks from Michelle Obama




Just little tale from this amazon:

 One night, former President of United States, Barrack Obama and his wife, Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn't too luxurious. When they were seated the owner of the restaurant, asked Barrack Obama's secret service if he could please speak to his wife in private. They gladly obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the restaurant owner,
Following the conversation, Barrack Obama was curious to know what went down so he asked his wife:
" Why was he so interested in talking to you?"
Michelle replied that during her teenage years, the owner was madly in love with her. To which Obama replied that if he had married her, she would have been the owner of the lovely restaurant.
Refusing to take defeat, Michelle responded:
"No, if I had married him, he would have become a US president"
Now that is what I ma talking about!

Michelle Obama is what I can describe as a three-in-one woman. She is intelligent, beautiful and charismatic. She is not just a pretty face but beauty merged with brains.She is down-to-earth and very amiable.  During her tenure, she was the brain behind the ''Lets Move'' campaign that sought to promote healthy lifestyle habits amongst children.

Have you caught her busting those moves? She is a stepper,a good one as that! Being the first lady didn't prevent her from being herself. The mother of two had been caught on the field engaging in athletics e.g Table Tennis. She does karaoke like no other.

Michelle Obama has been regarded as one of the stylish/fashionable FLOTUS of all time. Of course she couldn't be caught alone without her proud husband, Barrack Obama. So check out10 red carpet  looks from our Woman Crush Wednesday, Michelle Obama:

Battlefield

Are women their own worst enemies? Well…it is actually subjective but there is the general view that women have issues amongst themselves. When Heaven told me her story, I could not help but wonder why women do not have each others back. The competition is real for who is more beautiful, endowed and accomplished. There would always be a woman prettier, taller, more shapely, more intelligent. No one can win the race in the battle for who has it all in the women folk. There would always be someone ahead and someone behind.


Heaven had narrated how she had gone to submit an application a day after closure.  It was partly her fault but circumstances made her a day late. She had got the information late from her colleagues. The day they went to submit theirs, she was unavoidably absent-on a research mission. Heaven had summoned courage despite her colleagues telling her that it was already late. For Heaven, it was better to try than not to try at all.  The next day, she gathered all her hard copy of credentials, dressed corporately and matched to the office that advertised the vacancy to submit her application.

On getting to the office, the man at the entrance gave her a little hope but another man was kinda haughty and not bulging. The haughty man had directed Heaven to singlehandedly give the application to the woman -in-charge. The other kindhearted man beckoned to him that they should help but his partner was adamant. He even expressed his fears to his colleagues that the woman-in-charge might shout at her for late arrival. In the end, Heaven had to go and meet the "woman" herself as all persuasion amounted to nothing.


The "woman" was exact opposite of Heaven-no weave-on(short natural hair instead), no make up, no earrings, very long skirt…did you know after Heaven explained to the woman the reason for her late submission of the application, the woman literally threw Heaven out. The woman told Heaven to go outside the building. And that was where she attended to her.

Please who does that?

While outside, Heaven was muttering prayers that God touches the woman's heart and that she gets to submit the application. When the "woman" came out,she clung to the close door handle and what came out her mouth was without conscience. First of all, her body language was we don't want you here. The woman shut the door. And then she said it was pointless using a flimsy excuse or looking for a criteria that made Heaven unqualified. That's how Heaven left defeated. No mercy from her fellow woman.  Even if she rejected Heaven’s application, did she have to do so crudely???



What do you think? Do women have each others back? Why do we compete with each other? Please share your thoughts, I am itching to hear from you.
