    Black Girls Travel (Too) | Barcelona

    Kids playing street ball near Las Ramblas – a popular street near city centre for tourists and locals. Coincidentally, while I was in Barbados, two of my soror-friends Catina and Adzoa were in Barcelona. Ooo-oo-oop! The Mountain at Montserrat – aka home of black Madonna.

  • Kinky Talk

    Kinky Talk

    Kinky HAIR that is! I came across this discussion on Facebook and it’s filled with good information. I have plenty of kinks so I can attest to the need to focus on hair health in order to retain length. Kinky hair is especially fragile, which means you can go natural, rarely use heat, yet still experience […]

    Napturally Curly talks: Going Natural on a Budget
