Here we go again! Another season of fabulous hair trends and of course grey hair is leading the pack. This time the trend’s Internet buzz is driven by Toya Wright (she’s Lil’ Wayne’s first baby mama for those who are having a much warranted brain fart).
When I first saw this picture (on repeat via Instagram) I’ll admit, I thought it was kinda dope. A good Beyonce wave simply delights my inner diva. And I honestly feel that if you’re confident in your being you can pull off any hair color. But of course since I am naturally grey (a fact that I have to prove every time I leave my house because celebrities dye their hair and now people don’t believe it can be real), I have a rant that I’ve been sitting on since Rihanna first broke the Internet with her dingy ass grey weave.
Here I go again, trying to be a style blogger. This time with the help of MissGuided Plus. Their new plus line lunched back in November of last year and in true procrastinator form, I’ve been sitting on the clothes they sent me with the intention of heading outside to take pics to show you beauties the fabulousness they possess. Of course I wait until the coldest day of the year!
Turning 30 has always been the benchmark for becoming “over-the-hill.” I’m not sure when that actually started, but nowadays, turning 30 is just turning 30.

Check out the things you need to start and stop doing by the time you turn the big 3-0.
Instagram nearly broke when three popular bloggers headed to Target’s headquarters on a secret visit a few months ago. The entire plus size community speculated and gossiped about what these girls were working on. I know, because I heard these conversations for myself (don’t you wish you knew that tea!)
We all love King Bey and her song that made us feel like the queens that we are, but even royalty makes mistakes. We all have insecurities and go through tough times in life that can really affect our mindsets.
Being “flawless” is a coined phrase to be taken lightly, but we should not take it so literal that we forget to be human. Being yourself is the perfect way to put that “flawless” mentality to good use. Living in a world where Instagram is life and perfection is a common and encouraged mentality, it’s detrimental to our personal wellness and doesn’t contribute to positive feelings about ourselves.
Here are three reasons why being perfect isn’t something we should be aiming for and why you are flawless the way you are.
Finding the perfect shade of foundation or shade of lipstick for all shades of brown has always been a dancing affair among brands for women of color since FOREVA! With beloved and legendary pioneers like Madame N.A Franklin and established cosmetic companies like Fashion Fair Cosmetics, brainchild of Johnson Publishings (Ebony and Jet Magazine), they have cleared the runway to earn a piece of this 58.79 billion industry (www.statista.com).
