Thanks to the start of Coachella, ’tis the season for music festivals. Now is the time for you to wear your favorite rompers and moccasin boots and get ready to discover artists you’ve never heard before.
There’s a right way to do music festivals, and a wrong way. Always go right, ladies. Always go right.
Every now and then, a girl wants to change up her look by sporting a new hair color. Maybe some highlights to frame the face or an ombre look to keep up with what’s on trend. Either way, when it comes to adding color to your hair, it can have an effect on it’s condition. Even plant-based coloring agents like henna can have an altering effect on the texture and curl pattern of your hair. So before you take that leap and head to the salon, or to your local beauty supply store, you’ll want to consider these do’s and don’ts when it comes to caring for color treated hair.
Being transparent is always a double-edged sword. Rarely are people (readers) comfortable with what needs to be shared. And one would think that those who offer help would be more comfortable with taboo topics like suicide being openly shared, but they’re not either. After learning that Karyn Washington, my friend and popular blogger, committed suicide I got this brilliant idea to open up to my readers, the random Internet perusers, and hell, the entire world. I confessed to battling depression after my mother diedwithin a year of being diagnosed of stage 4 Lymphoma. Watching my mother die and then wanting her to die because of all the pain she was in, put me in a terrible head space.
I sat and watched The Other Woman thinking this could never happen to me (XO to Popsugar for the fabulous screening party). It’s a story of a very unlikely and unconventional friendship between a wife, the girlfriend and…another girlfriend. Nope, could never be me!
But after watching the movie I realized that this could be me. Besides the fact that each woman had a closet that I swooned for, each character was endearing and lovable.
The weather is warming up and those maxi skirts and sun dresses are in full effect. We are now about to enter a zone that every natural has been before. And if you haven’t, here’s your chance to make it happen. We’re talking natural hair show and expo season. Some of the hottest natural hair events are quickly approaching and if you are not there, well let’s just say you just better be there. Spring and summer are prime event seasons. Naturals will travel from the east coast and to the west coast and vice versa just to take part of these events. So, the next question is “what are these events?”
Spring, is that you? The calendar says it is, but Mother Nature hasn’t quite figured it out yet. Since the calendar says its spring, might as well dress like it, right? I don’t know about you, but I like to dress on trend. Now, that doesn’t mean I dress like everyone else, it just means my style is on par with what the “popular kids” are wearing.
