Maintaining Your Style, while Traveling

 

Happy Monday!

Home from the Holidays! Hope yours was filled with love and blessings 🙂

Mine was great! As I stated in my last post, I spent time in Europe over the Holiday.

I thought for a while about how I would wear my hair. I decided that I could maintain a braid-n-curl for a week, so I styled my hair the night before and went on my way, thinking it was all good 🙂

Ode to the BIG CURLY FRO!

 

I love the Fro in general! It’s a beautiful halo that naturally adorns your head! You can pick it, spike it, mold it, shape it, and even curl it!  After your crown is perfect, accessorize it!

Enjoy the afrolicious eye candy!

I wondered how many people are so into ‘fros that they write about them…whaddya know!  People write poems about their love for their BAA (Big A$s Afro)!

Tell Em’ How You Really Feel Fridays

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

–Except from Maya Angelou’s “Phenomenal Woman”
