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

  1. OMG , I feel like I wrote this post because this is exactly how I have been feeling about hair. Even yesterday I instagrammed different pictures of short hairstyles I wanted because I am ready to shave it off for the second time. After my weave is off my hair is going away too. You look beautiful plus its just hair it will grow back.

    PS: Happy anniversary

  5. Love your hair!...hmmm! but this post gives me very mixed feelings. just this afternoon I had a chat with a friend that has gone natural about managing and maintaining natural hair, simply because I have been contemplating going natural but the thing is I do not have the patient for the daily preening that natural hair needs, as a result I have been on the fence about making taking that leap, Now your post just made it even more difficult. lol!

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?


Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
