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!
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!)
I’ve been staring at this blog entry for the past 20 minutes. Trying to figure out what I wanted to write about. What I needed to say to the world today.
My mother is 60-years-old…today! And all I wanted to do was call her. I just wanted to hear her voice. I wanted her to ask me how New York was treating me? And if Mike and I were getting along? When’s the wedding? You know, the pleasantries that happen when you haven’t spoken to someone in a while. I haven’t spoken to my mother in forever (over two years to be exact). Then I remembered that she left me for her rightful golden cloud-infused seat somewhere up in Heaven.
With nail art and lacquer becoming more of a finishing accessory, more and more independent African-American brands have put their bid in for a slice of the $768 million pie.
With African-American women dominating consumption at a mind-blowing 80%, (WWD), more than any other race or group of women in the cosmetic industry in America, mainstream brands tend to neglect to speak to the African-American consumer.
Here are some F.U.B.U. (For Us By Us) brands to make all of your nail lacquer dreams come true. I’ve found everything you can possibly need from bold, sassy, dramatic, and dainty, to fun names that incorporates familiar lingo that we will make you kiki on the inside.
I’m super excited to finally share a new video series that I’m producing and hosting on HelloBeautiful (screams!). We’re turning our weekly fab or fug fashion posts into weekly videos were we talk the week’s best and worst celebrities.
