How a Girl Knows When She has a True Friend
I think a girl can tell when she has a true friend or a best friend when she can truly be happy for them in situations. A lot of the times, as females, if another woman has something great or something that we want, we cant be happy for them because there’s this innate sense of jealousy that rises within us. From my experience, when you’ve found a true friend, the innate sense of...
Whenever someone tells me I’m brave for rockin my hair the way I do, I think, “How am I brave?? You’re the brave one, putting all those caustic chemicals on your hair. Risky.” lol #naturalhair
Chinese Mothers are Superior
After reading Amy Chau’s article on Chinese mothers in the Wall Street Journal…I decided that if I am blessed to bare children, I will be a Chinese mother. The article has moved me to action, so to speak. I’m so glad she broke it down the way she did. Basically, Western mothers care too much about their children’s feelings than their success, or at the most they care about...
Pre-Poo and Oil Rinse magic
Ugh this atheist guy keeps reblogging my post. :( Moving right along. For my naturalistas… Last night I let my pre-poo consisting of: a lot of aloe vera gel, 3 spoons of castor oil, a teaspoon of evoo (extra virgin olive oil) and a squirt of Burt’s Bees Avocado Butter Pre Shampoo in overnight. My hair loved it. Then I rinsed it out, shampooed, did an oil rinse with evoo, and...
The irony of...Hell
You know what I find interesting? How people that don’t believe in God are still going to go to hell and suffer. Why waste your life? Like seriously, even if you do worship the devil on earth, he’s not going to like…give you any special accommodations in hell. You’re not going to have a good time down there. The devil is laughing at you right now. Everything he does is an...
A rant worth reading...
MAANNN…I don’t know if I can “support” lil wayne anymore after reading those comments he allegedly said. Now I know what you’re thinking. How do you know he actually said that stuff? That girl could just be making this all up. Yea. This is true. She could be making it all up. But when you have a track record like lil wayne, saying things against darker skinned...
Ten Reasons to Love Natural Hair
Not having to take cover at the sight of a rain drop. Being able to jump right into the shower and let water run from the top of your head to the tips of your toes….I hate showercaps Hand in fro disease. Need I say more, playing in your curlies is so joyous…..Don’t recommend it though. The deep longing in your gut for a big bodacious afro…….oh what joy!! ...
I do apologize to any of my followers who don’t care about me going natural.

Just a little something I wrote for my hair..
It’s not done. At all. Love Affair She reaches to the sky, my oh my. She’ll reach to the heavens in 2011. She doesn’t fall to the ground where the devil resides, She rises to the heavens, where God abides. She’s been through years of opression which caused a depression, but in it’s secession she claims her profession: As a crown on the heads of those who...
Is it not ok for me to wear a gele because I’m not African? It has come to my attention that some people think so. Erykah Badu wore a gele and she’s not african. Would it be ok if I called it a head wrap and not a gele…a word that only means something to you when shown? Does my afrocentrism offend you? If so, oh well. If you judge me, oh well. I think it’s pretty. ...
