2014 ESSENCE Street Style Block Party: Sunday Recap

Dear Brooklyn...

The ESSENCE Street Style Block Party was nothing short of fabulous! This shindig definitely added some African hot pepper sauce in New York's Fashion week. The crowd was oozing with beauty, individual style, and high vibes. I love Brooklyn (Goddess knows I do) and I love all of the non-conforming souls of different shades, sizes, and hair textures expressing themselves in so many creative ways. The same industry who rejects us is copying our same style without our face. Cultural appropriation much? Thank you ESSENCE for highlighting the street style and beauty of men and women of color!
Look at these beauties..3's a charm! From left to right:

These are the sexiest plastic flats I've ever seen.

Afros, curls, and kinks oh my!

I'm Back in this Bish! AFROPUNK FEST 2014 (and my hair)

It's been a long time…

I shouldn't have left you, without a strong blog to step to!

To all of the consistent bloggers in the blogosphere, I aspire to be like you all one day (I promise). It's been over a year since I've been on here but I'm back in the bish! Ok, now, let me break it down so it can forever and consistently be broke--AFROPUNK gave me LIFE this past weekend! So many magical beings floating around the park along with great music, not to mention the creatively-enriched vendors.

HOW I PUNKED OUT: Ombre Hair with Color Phunk
I'm doing the most with my Havana twists right now.  I got funked up on some Color Phunk multi-purpose pigments for AFROPUNK weekend. Yes, it was messy but it did the job! I simply mixed 1part water to 2 parts pigment powder until it formed a paste. After applying the paste to my hair, I sprayed a generous amount of Natural Missst hairspray by Aubrey Organics to seal the color. The pic below is not doing my hair any justice…the colors were poppin'! Au natural temporary ombre color minus the fuss and it washed out so easily! Warning, avoid wearing light colored clothes while wearing temporary hair color. This stuff is like fairy dust!

Celebrating International Women's Day. Who Runs This...?


Today is a global celebration of "WOMBMAN" past, present, and future. We have achieved economically, socially, and politicaly; however, there is still more work to be done. Gender bias still exists, even in the most developed countries. Let's continue to wear our warrior dress and fight for our respect.

Happy Nu Year!


We have not only entered a new fiscal year, but also a new astrological age! 12/21/12 marked the Age of Aquarius - the age of enlightenment, truth, and love. 2012 was full of ups and downs but what is light without darkness? I'm looking forward to a great year...bring it on 2013!  What are your goals for the new year?
