Hello lovelies!  Jessica and I went to Atlanta this past weekend to attend the annual World Natural Hair Show.  It was a really exciting experience to see so many women rocking their natural hair in afros, twist outs, wash-n-gos, braids, and other styles. There were other vloggers and bloggers there.

I had the opportunity to meet one of my favorite YouTube vloggers Toni Daley (tonidaley.com.)  I was super excited to meet her and support your business.

Toni and I

Here’s what I got from Toni:

I also got some mugs from an artist called Twisted Cheri.  She makes posters and drawings of African-American women.  www.twistedcheri.com

I also got a chance to support other business and I got a chance to stock up on some hair and skin care products.

Support a Sista

What’s up beautiful people?

A little over a year a ago, I saw this YouTube video from Toni Daley where she expressed her frustrations with company who was supposed to be specialized in black hair care. Well, long story short she expressed the need for black women to support other black women’s businesses and black owned businesses. She initiated a movement called Support a Sista so that we as Black women can uplift and support one another.

Here’s the video:

I have been more strategic about supporting other sisters. I will be sharing my experiences as well as highlight sister owned businesses and services that I have had the opportunity to support. I want to encourage other sisters to do the same.

My Favorite Fashions From The NAACP Image Awards

Hey lovelies!
I just had to share my favorite five gowns I seen at the 46th NAACP Image Awards on Friday February 6th.  I will list my favorite look and work my way down.

1.  Tracee Ellis Ross
I am soooo loving Tracee’s gown and her total look.  I love the lace detail because it’s soft and feminine.  It was curve hugging with a plunging neckline. She was gorgeous.  I love to see women embrace their curves.  The gown flowed when she walked.  You had to see it in action.  Her natural curls were beautiful and her makeup was simple. Tracee is my favorite fashion inspiration.  By the way, she won best comedic actress for her role in one of my newest favorite  television shows Blackish.

2. Angela Bassett
When Ms. Bassett walked on the stage, she was welcomed with a standing ovation.  She looked so regal, confident, and ageless.  She was stunning.  She makes me look forward to being 56 years old.  Angela’s gown and hair was flawless.  Cheers to being fabulous over 50!

3. Teyonah Parris
I saw this look on the red carpet and saw how beautiful it was.  I love how the neutral color, lace, embellishments create a soft, feminine look.  I love the form fit of the gown with the sheer skirt.  I like that Teyonah embraces her kinky natural hair when she’s on the red carpet.

4.  Gabrielle Union
Gabby also wore a neutral gown with the back out.  This look is different from what I normally see Ms. Union usually wear, but I like it.

Honorable Mention: Kerry Washington
I really like Kerry Washington because she’s a natural beauty.  Her style is very classy and sleek.  I love this red lace gown Kerry wore.  It was simple yet beautiful.

Natural Hair Art

Hi Beautiful people,

I ran across some really gorgeous art of African-American women rocking their natural hair.  I love the colors and fashion.  I found out where these pic can be bought http://www.nikisgroove.com.  You can follow Niki on instagram as well. I just wanted to share some that I saw on instagram.  FYI: the last pic with the t-shirt is not Niki’s.
