Natural Hair Chit Chat: How I Like My Hair.

I like my hair just like I do my ice cream, vanilla. It’s very typical of me and I couldn’t wait to drop that line someday. I am the kind of person that will rock one style just because I rocked it once and it worked for me, which (un)fortunately also makes me so predictable…

Millennial,

Part Two: Who’s this Millennial?

I think I started the ‘series’ way ahead of where I should have. That’s why I’ve been feeling so stuck and frustrated on how I’ll go about this job I’ve pleasantly placed upon myself. I will be on millennials this, millennials that, and I haven’t described who this millennial person is.

Real Talk: In My Teens.

Putting religion aside (although it’s a part of who I am), I figured when you’re going through any kind of challenge, it helps to know who you are.
