I Took My Afro: Back to My Roots

My baby sis!
Fierce Friday!

This Labor Day weekend was epic for me.  I got to go home (#DMV) and hang out w/ friends and family. I spent the weekend mostly with my sister who I haven’t seen in 9 or 10 years.

It’s interesting to see siblings grow up. I left home for school when she was 12 years old so it was fun watching her as a woman.

Weekend Project: How To Clean a Conch Shell

Conch Shell Before

When I was in the Bahamas, this conch shell was gifted to me by coconutdaddy1 (checkout how he acquires his coconuts). My knowledge of conch was mostly non-existent, except for the fact that here in FL, a lot of people eat variations of conch. I’d never tried it and when I found out conch was a slug, I had no desire to try it.

Upon receiving the shell, I was instructed to take it home and oil it. I waited two weeks to do something and by that time, the outer layer of the shell had hardened. I decided to tackle the project this weekend.
