pretty for a dark skinned girl
You're pretty for a dark skinned girl. I've been hearing this all of my life. It's not a compliment. In fact it's quite insulting, and I'm about tired of it. I didn't always find this statement to be insulting though. That's because I didn't love myself. Let me explain.
Malaville Dolls
Dolls with multiple shades of beautiful brown skin and different textures of gorgeous kinky curly hair? Yes please. Model Mala Bryan created Malaville Dolls to fill the void that was missing in her personal doll collection- dolls that actually look like her, and a lot of the rest of us brown skinned beauties.
Maria Bourges Natural Hair Victoria's Secret
Angolan supermodel Maria Bourges walked for the third time in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but this time around she proudly rocked her natural hair... and she's the first to do so.
I've been taking him on regular dates since he was little. I love our time spent together. This time we went to the American Museum of Natural History.
Lupita Nyongo Vogue October 2015
Lupita Nyong'o has landed her second Vogue Magazine cover and she absolutely SLAYS the issue. The Kenyan actress looks straight up gorgeous.
Natural Hair Essence Street Style Block Party 2015
New York Fashion Week is in full swing and I've been attending my fair share of events. This weekend I rolled through the Essence Street Style Block Party.
Michael July AFROS
AFROS is an oversized, bright and colorful coffee table book filled with vibrant images of gorgeous people rocking their natural hair. Each person has a story to tell, and it is so easy to sit down and become totally engrossed for hours. If you were thinking about returning to natural, you would have no doubts after just browsing through AFROS. If you are transitioning, you'll want to big chop immediately. It's that powerful.
Tribe Called Curl Kinks and Drinks
Kinks & Drinks is a monthly meetup hosted by Tribe Called Curl for naturalistas to connect with each other. I rounded up my curlfriends to check it out.
New York citizenM Blogger Experience
I attended the citizenM Times Square Blogger Experience as well as the Frieze New York Art Fair this weekend. I had an AMAZING time at both events!
