Trend I Love

So, I'm really loving this new color blocking trend. I've been seeing this trend for awhile and thought I couldn't pull it off. But having learned a little more, I think I can pull it of. I can start off easy like Kanye, with white as a base.

Later on when I'm feeling bold, I can copy Rachel Roy. I love this outfit.

Demure Color Blocking

Reporting In

Well Spring Break is over. womp womp.
I had a great time and wish that it could have continue for a few more days. The weather was great for the most part and I really felt like I was able to relax.
My friend from college came to visit and we had a blast just hanging out.
Dropped over by the Hamptons and went to the beach. Picniced in Central Park, despite the cold.
Took some awesome photos for my photo blog. Check them out HERE.

Helped another friend plan her wedding, OMG! It's a lot of work. I had no clue.It's fun though and I think this whole thing is bringing us closer. I've declared myself her wedding planner, ha!

Anyway not much else going on in my life. Wish I had lots of exciting things to report. Just school, work and more work. *Sigh*Oh well, maybe soon.
Ciao!!

Spring Break and other news.

I'm enjoying my Spring Break away from work and kids, well with the exception of one kid. My adorable god-daughter Eden. She I can be around, she is as cute as a button.
I'm relaxing and sleeping and vegging out. I tried to do some school work but my brain is rebelling, meh, it'll get done at some point-- probably on Sunday night.

In fashion news, I was blog surfing and found out that June Ambrose, fashion extraordinaire is launching a line of turbans. Yes you heard right, a line of turbans priced from $125-$150. Now, I like fashion and I admire women who find a niche in the fashion world but c'mon now! That's all I'm saying.

I'm off to watch Bizarre Foods.

Going Natural

So I've made the decision to go natural. Admittedly, it is somewhat of a challenging process and quite possibly a scary one. I've done my research and it is not as easy as one might assume to go from having a relaxer for God knows how many years to wearing one's natural hair.

I'm wearing braids to grow out my hair because I don't know if I go the route of the big chop. Honestly, I don't think I have the confidence to pull it off. I see many women who look gorgeous but I just don't think that way about myself. So I'm taking the easy road...I know it's cowardly. Don't judge me.
Hopefully, by the time I do take the braids out I will have grown some cohones to work my natural hair. Oh Lordy, I don't remember what the actual texture of my hair is like and that is the scary part.

I think I have very fine kinky hair. Nothing wrong with that. I just hope I can manage it. I think that is my biggest fear of going natural. I cannot style hair at all. I'm very bad at it. I have no sense of style or creativity when it comes to hair. I get frustrated easily and I don't know if I have the patience to try the multitude of products until I find the right one, which apparently you have to do when you go natural.

There is also the worry that natural hair just won't be flattering on me. This feeling does not come from a place of self-hate. I have the same worry about dying my hair any other color than black and about wearing a middle part.

Point is I want to be comfortable in whatever state of kinkiness I'll be in.  Wish me luck.
Ciao
