There have been quite a few questions about what it is to be an AppleCake. It is so much more than just being labeled a vixen or eye-candy. Being an AppleCake is choosing a lifestyle. Strong, esteemed, attractive women have so many opportunities for growth in this generation. In the hip-hop industry, specifically, more and more pretty girls are being transformed into beautiful women and successful business owners. AppleCakes are representative of young, bossy chicks who are setting an example and looking fantastic while doing it. They travel, so they’ve got the connections to get their dreams going. They are smart and poised, so there is no such thing as a sloppy AppleCake. Overall, an AppleCake is ambitious, stopping at nothing to get what they want. Oh, and we can’t forget an AppleCake has “AppleCakes” for days! This publication is more than an eye-candy magazine for the average man to see cute girls posing on a random car or a rock on the beach. This is a look into the life of women who work hard and play harder.
The publisher, who also happens to be a dear friend of mine, is Roxxanne Montana. As a female editor, publisher, and model she is an inspiration to all AppleCakes world-wide who are trying to follow a similar path. All AppleCakes are not dancers. This will be a common misconception. Like I mentioned before, being an AppleCake is choosing a lifestyle. It is choosing to work hard and go harder at anything you do. Whether it be dancing, pole modeling, blogging, designing, marketing, etc. If your dreams are clear and concrete, you’ve got the look that makes people want to follow your movement, and you have the ambition to make your movement a powerful force, there is AppleCake potential. I’m sure many readers are familiar with the phrase “bad b*tches link up”. You’ve probably heard it more frequent than not in the very recent past. But this, this is about bad chicks linking up, and forming a network in which we can build a brand, an empire. They’ll love AppleCakes for their passion, looks are just a plus! So with that being said I’m going to ask you this: is beauty really only skin deep?
