Whenever there are setbacks or when things do not go exactly as planned I just have to remind myself that my journey is predestined and everything thing I have been through was exactly what I needed to get through to become all God has for me to be. I hope this will inspire you on your journey and find comfort in knowing it is never to late to start again!! NOW….Is right on time! 🙂

High Fashion & Natural Hair

I love fashion and always have, over the years I have notice that many of the high fashion models and models in commercials have natural hair and I love it!! Do not get me wrong there is still a major discrepancy in the amount of Black women in the fashion industry. Not to mention in the media we are not always shed in the best of light smh. But on the positive side of things I feel encouraged when I  see women of color strutting their stuff on the catwalk, on the cover of high fashion magazines, and in beauty commercials Embracing Their Crown so one day the rest of the world will do the same 🙂

Below are a few beautiful models that inspire me and have made their mark on the fashion industry as well as in the natural hair community.

Happy Mothers Day!!

 

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Beautiful Mothers out there that give so much!! Hope you all have an awesome day!! 🙂

What “Mother” Means
“Mother” is such a simple word,
But to me there’s meaning seldom heard.
For everything I am today,
My mother’s love showed me the way.
I’ll love my mother all my days,
For enriching my life in so many ways.
She set me straight and then set me free,
And that’s what the word “mother” means to me.
Thanks for being a wonderful mother, Mom!

#bringbackourgirls

HelloBeautiful

(Click HERE to enlarge)

Here are 177 names of the (at least) 276 Nigerian school girls, ages 15-18, who were abducted by Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram. I’ve been personally invested in this heartbreaking story of these girls being taken from Government Girls Secondary School, an elite academy of both Muslim and Christian girls, in Chibok and the first thing I thought when I found out about their names being released was, now I can speak their names in my prayers. For weeks, we’ve been thinking of these individual girls stuck in their personal horror as a number. It’s a beautiful thing to give them all a name. They all matter.

At this point, the entire world is anticipating the safe return of these girls and many vocal critics have chastised Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan for not…

So I just received my bottle of hairfinity in the mail today! I have been wanting to try the product for a while now after seeing all the amazing results online and to see if it would do the same for my hair. I really like the tips in this video about what to do and expect while taking hairfinity by @ms_black

1.) Best to take hairfinity while hair is in a protective style for best results
– I will be getting box braids tomorrow

2.) Best to take 1 pill a day instead of the recommended 2 pills a day to combat break outs

3.) Best to take it with a hefty meal and wash it down with a hot cup of tea

I will do an update post with before and after pictures once I finish my first bottle and will try to do a product review video as well. Looking forward to the results I will keep you posted 🙂

Found this online and wanted to share it with you lovely ladies!! Sometimes you just have to let your hair down, look in the mirror and embrace your best self even if it comes with flaws. I have learned that what ever you do work hard at it, and do it passionately or don’t do it at all. Hope this conveys a bit of inspiration for you as it did for me!! 🙂
