Hey guys, I really have been appreciating the love that I have been receiving lately. You don’t know how much it means to me. This was first a little hobby for me, but now I’m really looking to take it to the next level and see if I can take this somewhere. This is something I love to do, I love doing my research and trying new products so I can recommend the best to my follow beauties. In the next few months I plan on working extra hard, pushing myself to see what I can really do. I definitely appreciate the support that you guys have given me and I hope that you continue to grow with me. Any supportive words or advice? I would love to hear.
Hey guys, I’m getting really excited now. I just got approved for my vacation time for next month, so I will be in Charlotte checking out and hopefully applying for an apartment while I’m there. It’s getting real now because December is approaching rapidly and we are almost there. It has been very stressful trying to work as much as possible so that this move will be possible but it’s about that time we get out and get our own. Hey if anyone is from Charlotte, let me know of the good places to visit!
After hearing about the tragic death of Michael Brown I have had so many mixed feelings. On one hand I am angry that another one of our black men have been killed and I know there is probably nothing that is going to be done about it. But on the other hand I feel that this will be another tragic incident that occurs in the African American community, that will shortly be overlooked when then next “hot” topic comes around. It’s so hard to be apart of a movement and want to be apart of change when we can’t stick together. When I hear about the stories of the looting and seeing pictures of women leaving hair supply stores with packs of hair, it frustrates me because instead of focusing on what was most important people are taking this an an opportunity to benefit themselves. In order for there to be a change, we need to get upset at not only white on black violence but black on black violence. How can we ask for change when we can’t even protect ourselves, when there are black men killing other black men just because they wear different colors or because they have a pair of sneakers that they want. In order for there to be a change we have to stick together, we have to have the same passion when a white man kills a black man as when a black man kills a black man. It’s sad to see our men dying at the hands of anyone no matter the race. So it disappoints me when I see such an up rise for more of the (for a lack of a better word) “publicized” tragic events and nothing about the men that are being killed everyday in each of our own communities. I really think we have a long way to go before any changes can be made, changes need to be made in our own communities before we are taken seriously. I still pray for justice for everyone of our brothers that have been wrongfully murdered by the hands of someone else

“I don’t want you to leave, will you hold my hand.”
I love this song, and this man’s voice.
This song is everything right now, I love his voice. Probably because of how I’m feeling right now, but this is definitely on repeat.
Being a plus sized woman with natural hair has definitely has it ups and downs for me.There are times when I feel less confident and really start to question the way that I look. I’ve allowed other people to get into my head and tell me what I should look like or try to make me feel bad for being me. I use to be the type of person that had to wear a lot of makeup or try to show off my body to make up for something that I thought I was lacking. When I realized just how crazy I looked, and how I was trying to make others around me happy, I stopped. Now I wear clothes that accentuate my favorite body parts instead of them hanging out, now I know I don’t need to cake my face full of makeup. Looking in the mirror and reminding myself just how beautiful I am, has given me the confidence that I need to see that I don’t have to rely on the opinions of others to make me feel good about myself. So yes I say confidence is all that you need, when you are confident about yourself other people can see that and I think they respect it more. They know you are happy with yourself and their opinions are not important. So the next time you think doing something crazy will make other people happy, please STOP and think about what would make you happy in the long run.
Yess ! Love your natural hair, I know I do !
