    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 […]

    I meet so many fab women making moves in my scrolling of Instagram and the twittah 🙂 I just had to feature yet another one I’ve enjoyed following on the World Wide Web. Jess of HairGetsKinky.com blogs, vlogs, and posts pics of fly jewelry and hair styles. I asked her to share a bit about […]

    By now, you know my love for meeting new people through the Internet. Not in the way of trying to make new besties, but just connecting in a business manner. I also love to show support for African American women who are working hard and trying to make a name for themselves!   If you […]

    Whoooaaa I’m way late with posting about this event! In my defense, I am a teacher on summer break who has been relaxin’ and chillaxin’ while visiting friends from New York to Atlanta!

    Summer Time!

    [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kr0tTbTbmVA’] If this song doesn’t get you excited for summertime, pinch yourself because you’re not living in the moment! I could hear this on Christmas and want to break out my shades, grab a glass of lemonade, and lie on a hammock…but I live in St. Louis so it’d probably be 25 degrees on […]

    Perhaps I’d been wearing these too much which is why the lovely Toni Daley said I needed one of her latest pair! Haha I’ll take it!! I promise these new babies are going to get MUCH play (you can see I believe this from the multiple pics in my first pair of Toni Daley earrings)! […]

    Love the Skin You’re In

    While perusing Instagram, I came across Erwin Chatelier’s page and instantly knew I wanted her style to be part of My Natural Reality! The fulfillment I get from being a makeup artist is beyond amazing. It’s my passion. It gives me a comforting feeling when I see my clients face light up as they look in the mirror. […]

    I was always so perplexed whenever I was approached to sell items that I made. I thought, “Why would anyone want to buy this?” I saw my crocheting and knitting as a hobby, a thought that entered my mind one day as I left the hair salon. I was determined to learn to crochet, so […]

    I’m getting extensions…what should I do?

    While talking with a friend about her braid installation, I decided it’d be a great idea for a blog post! Here’s my advice to her: “I made sure to deep condition longer than usual before getting the braids.  I also blew my hair out (tension method: less heat, blow dryer further away from the hair […]

    My HAIRspiration for the day: braided styles

    Braided styles tend to be simple up and are a great protective style (especially for the bitter-cold winter months). Here’s a couple styles that allow you to keep part of your hair protected with braids while still enjoying your natural hair!  It also helps that the ends of the hair are tucked/pinned/braided so they’re not […]
