Check out the eye candy! Afro textured hair is so versatile; it’s one of my favorite things about having this texture. At different states, wet, dry, product, no product, the hair can take on a different appearance.

FF_Turban_AdI loved the way this headwrap design turned out! It took me about 5 minutes! Stay tuned for a pictorial next week.

It was great seeing my family!

PicnicTwo weekends ago, I attended the 2nd Annual Picnic for a group I’m a member of called “Black Women Who Want More”. I had a great time! Check the scarf! I decided to rock the scarf simply because I had twists in my hair that hadn’t been in long enough to set my hair.  I recommend scarves, turbans, and/or headwraps when you’re in a bind! They are beautiful and versatile, while adding a pop of color and style to your outfit! Additionally, If you’re not on meetup.com, you’re seriously missing out!

The Opinionated Male “Loves Black Women That Love Their Hair “

I recently came across a blog called the “Opinionated Male” where an author, Mr. Sobo, writes about whether or not black women “are going natural for life or fashion” and “why he loves black women who love their hair”.

He begins by describing an autumn night, a Friday to be exact, where he was heading out with a few of college compadres to a popular nightclub venue downtown. He then spots a beautiful woman but the most beautiful thing that stood out to him about her was her hair. Check out his description:

Wednesday’s Word | Pretty. Period

Picture it, 2005; I’m walking the beautiful campus of Florida A & M University, on my way to work.  The sun is shining but there’s a slight breeze, and approaching me is a beautiful chocolate man.

Kathleen Cleaver | “Why We Wear Our Hair Like This”

“We were born like this, but they want wigs like this!”

She so succinctly explained how colorism, western standards of beauty, and racism have affected the black community.  Black is indeed beautiful! Spread the word!

Wednesday’s Word | I Love Myself When

ZoraI love myself when I have done something to help to make someone else’s life easier!

Self-love isn’t arrogant; it’s recognition of your worth, validated by none other than you! Learning to love myself, recognize my flaws, and making a choice to work to improve those flaws has been difficult but personally rewarding!
