Black girls have been RECLAIMING OUR VACATION TIME!!!

My Instagram page as well as salon schedule has been filled with beautiful back women on vacation! All summer 2017, black women have traveling all over the world. Whether it be a #BAEcation or the oh so classic #GirlsTrip! Seriously, I’ve been vicariously living through all of your photos!

With the growing number of black women (and men, too) going on vacations year, we have to discuss the number one concern we all deal with while traveling…

Happy Monday loves!

 

March is here and that means that summer is right around the corner! I’m anxiously waiting to for my melanin to glow even more in the sun!

 

I’ve been reflecting about the past year and how grateful I am to do what I love. What’s even better is that you all have supported me throughout this journey. I am beyond grateful to God for each and every one of you! You could’ve been anywhere in the world, but you’re here with me! I want to show my appreciation to every single one of you this month. In my best Ace Boogie’s voice..

As we all may have seen on the news these past few days that Emmett Till’s accuser Carolyn Bryant came forward about what really happened in Mississippi on August 28th 1955.

 

For the start of Black History Month, I want to focus on the story of Emmett Till. This story is very familiar to me. In 7th grade I created my history fair project on the lynching of Emmett Till. I was so moved by what happened; I forgot that I was doing a project. I ended up going down state in Springfield with my project. This really sparked my interest for OUR history.

Emmett Louis Till was a 14 year old boy from Chicago, Illinois. He was known to be charismatic and the center of attention. His mother, Mamie Till was native to [....]

Heeeyyyyy everyone! Long time, no see! I’m back! Did y’all miss me? Lol

 

So I posted a question to my personal Facebook page about a week ago asking “What struggles do you (the people) have with their hair?”

 

Lets just say, we got some hair issues that need to be addressed! ASAP!

 

A lot of people stated that they had issues with dryness, retaining length, breakage/shedding and styling. I was surprised and amused at how many guys commented about losing their hair lines!! I’ll do my best to help the fellas, too!

 

I’m going to break up different topics in future blogs but today I want to focus on the most common issue…DRYNESS!

 

Now, I wrote a post about understanding dry hair in a previous post but now I’m going [....]

Hi my loves!

 

We’ve made it to the end of the year! I cannot believe the year has flown by this fast. My birthday is also coming up so that’s always a plus!

I’ve been reflecting over the year and how this year has been for me and it’s truly been a blessing. I have learned and grown so much and I have gained a new level of appreciation for the trials and triumphs I’ve experienced this year alone.

I’m extremely appreciative of everyone who has told me they learned something from my specials focusing on African American history. I want to end the year in the same pattern and focus on two figures in our history that I’m appreciative of.

Jupiter Hammon and Phillis Wheatley are two of the very first African American [....]
