Hair Rant, Giveaway et al...



Hey Chicas! Howdy, It's been a while, hasn't it? I haven't posted much because I have not had a camera. I am getting a free upgrade from Bestbuy and the new camera gets in today. Whoop!!!!

So in this post, I mentioned that I cut my hair, and everyone I know has been going "why on earth did you cut your hair". Well, when I went natural 4 years ago I was excited and I took really great care of my hair. I was watching natural YouTube vloggers, trying different products, learning the natural hair lingo and all that good stuff. After a while, I got tired of tending to my hair and I lost interest. I know natural hair gurus recommend spritzing the hair with water and using natural oils daily.For me, the daily nurturing was way too tasking  (In Sweet Brown's voice, "aint nobody got time fo dat") . In short, I neglected my hair and it resulted in breakage. Anyway, I cut my hair because it was unhealthy and I really wanted to start afresh. This time around, I am going to find products that work for me and stick to a regiment. *Rant about hair over!

So my blog clocked 3 years April 13th and I will be having a giveaway on Monday, April 29th..YAY! This giveaway will be different as I will be partnering with some small business owners. Being a business owner, I though it'd be great to feature businesses owned by fellow black females. The giveaway will have a business focus and I will be interviewing each of the sponsors. Please visit the blog on Monday for more information.




What do guys think of my short hair?:-)

Happy hump day

SINDISO KHUMALO: SS 13

I recently came across the Spring/summer 2013 collection of Sindiso Khumalo,a South Afrcian textile designer based in London. Sindiso, who describes her aesthetic as “Afro Bauhaus gone Pop",  was shortlisted for the Elle Magazine Rising Star Competition.  Subtlety infusing her African heritage in the designs, the SS13 collection features geometric shapes and bold colors.Taking a minimal approach, this collection boasts of clean and refined pieces.This collection is so practical and I love the wearability of each piece.









I absolutely love this collection. Kinda "Solange-esque", don't ya think?

For more on the designer visit her website  &  Facebook page

Last week, one of my "bestest" people in the world came down to spend some time with me. Unfortunately, because of work, we really couldn't hang out much. Anyway yesterday, before we headed out, we had a mini photo shoot.  We kept laughing and  making funny faces...It was such a mess.Anyway here goes!
My clutch, top and pants are from Tjmax or Marshals.Red dress from Lord & Taylor.
The pout seemed like a great idea at the time!




That's all folks have a great week!
