💜 My Natural Journey 👑

I went through process of going NATURAL and MAN was it a long process!!! I love that creamy crack, but I haven't had a perm since October 2014. I will not do the "BIG CHOP" though because I was so scared to do it. My hair grew pretty fast but it's just something about doing that chop. I think NATURAL hair is so beautiful. My mom and my sister thought I was crazy for going through with this journey but I wanted to explore my NATURAL hair and discover my original curl pattern. I took  the process very slow. Right now, I'm wearing a wig. Next month, I'll be putting my hair in two strand twists. This is my journey....

When I visited my hair stylist last year and I told her that when I was getting perms, I had to get them every month (yes, girl... this is true) because my hair grow very fast, it's thick and unruly. She told me my hair was doing that because my hair was never meant to get a perm and it was "misbehaving" and I thought "Wow, that logic makes so much sense!"

My hair has grown soooo much!! But don't let the shrinkage fool you, I got that length boo!

Take a look into my journey....

I ❤ My Melanin

I love my melanin. It's pure. It's magic. It's art. It's radiant. It's raw. It's edgy. It's brilliant. It's smooth. It's luscious. It's fantastic. It's tasty. It's shiny. It's flawless. It's sensual. But most of all.... it's beautiful!

Valentine's NIGHT.....

Hey guys!!! I'm back with another look!!!
As for me, I will be staying in on Tuesday and cooking for him! I mean, Valentine's Day is in fact, on a Tuesday, and most of us have to work the next day, but if you not, then go for a look similar to this here. 
This dress reminds me of my senior year prom dress, which was absolutely phenomenal!!
Get your strawberries and roses ready girls!! You'll be sure to turn some heads!
I hope your night ends as a romantic one!
