Red and Fabulous

I’ve been natural for the past two years and counting and even though it’s not easy work maintaining properly coarse and difficult natural hair, it’s been a rewarding journey and I am learning more and more how to handle it and WORK IT!

In the last three months, I have texturized my hair twice as well as dyed twice (3 month interval between both times). Texturizing makes the hair less difficult without perming it totally although my last time texturizing, I let the texturizer stay on too long and my hair went really straight and soft like permed hair. Took my getting caught in the rain to frizz out my hair and wake up the sleeping natural curls.

The first three pictures are my hair while wet. I love how the curls form and how extra red it looks when wet. The two before the last picture are my hair in a bun. Buns are a fave of mine and I’m excited my hair is now long enough to be put up in one. Last but not the least, is my beyootiful twin and baby sister, Bee. Her hair is wet in the photo and like my hair, the curls look amazing when the hair is wet. Her color also comes out more cause she used more dye than I did and I love how fierce her hair looks.

For anyone natural or anyone thinking of going natural, I’m not a pro in natural hair handling. It takes patience and in time, your hair will co-operate with you 🙂 xxx


Early Christmas Gift :)

So one of the items on my Christmas wishlist was a new phone because as I said earlier, my last one was stolen. I’ve been saving up from my salary and my beautiful and loving mama was kind enough to give me some money and viola! I have my new phone 🙂

It’s a Blackberry. My dream phone would have been an iPhone but the BB will do for now. Soon and very soon, I’ll be able to afford any damn phone I want. (P.s it feels so good to actually be EARNING money even if it isn’t so much)

I’m at a lounge for a friend’s performance and I’m blogging from my new phone. Gotta love technology! 🙂



My aunt sent the link to this post to me and my sisters. Guess it was a sub but it’s one appreciated cause I happen to love this.

I am far more precious and valuable than gold, diamonds and pearls 🙂



The Legendary boxer Mohammed Ali’s advice to his daughters. An incident transpired when his daughters arrived at his home wearing clothes that were quite revealing. Here’s the story as told by one of his daughters. “When we finally arrived, the chauffer escorted my younger sister, Laila and me up to my father’s suite. As usual, he was hiding behind the door waiting to scare us. We exchanged hugs and kisses as we could possibly give in one day. My father took a good look at us, then he sat me down on his lap and said something that I will never forget. He looked me straight in the eyes and said; “Hanna, everything that God made Valuable and Precious in the world is covered and hard to get to. Where do you find Diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected. Where do you find Pearls? Deep down at the…
