More color combos I like

So, I really like the color black, and I was thinking of incorporating it...well, at least at the reception. Of course, me being me, I'm still not sure. But no worries, I have a loooong time to decide. Anyway, here are some really fab photos I found with black, pink and/or purple.

Wedding color?

Even though I'm not getting married until next year, I've been thinking about the colors I want to use. Right now I'm thinking pink, purple and orange. Here are a few pics I found with those colors, and I think the combo is hot! What do ya'll think?

Bantu Knot Out results

As I mentioned earlier, I did a bantu knot out for my friend's wedding. Here are the results:

I don't know how I got this flip thing lol

What's going on?

I know ya'll probably think I'm like a horrible blogger, right? Well, it's not that, it's just that I really don't do much to my hair, so...yeah...I did do a Bantu knot out for my friend's wedding. I'll post pics later today (I promise!)

Since I don't do a lot to my hair, I decided that I will use a portion of this blog to talk about wedding stuff. Oh wait, I guess I should tell you, I'm engaged! So in addition to my few and far between hair posts, I'll post about wedding plans, decor, dresses, etc. Stay tuned!

Sorry for the loooong delay...

Hello lovelies,

I'm a hostess at a friend's wedding this weekend, so I'll hopefully some pics of my hair...until then, here are some pics (and some nail photos to come tomorrow, hopefully):

This is my celebrity look-a-like (it was the thing to do on Facebook last week).
I ♥ eye makeup (I'm not a pro, as you can see)

Why I'm natural

Of course, you know I have natural hair, so I wanted to share (once again) why I decided to wear my hair this way.

The main reason I stopped relaxing is the history behind black women straightening their hair in the first place- to be more appealing (physically) to white folk and so white people would accept them. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that's why people continue to do it, I'm just saying that knowing the history is one reason I wanted to stop. It's kind of like reclaiming who I am and who my people are.

Also, I'd noticed that relaxers were making my hair thin. And I hate thin hair. I also got tired of spending my Saturdays in the salon, sitting under the dryer for an hour and then not wanting to rid with the windows down, not wanting to get my hair wet in the rain and spending a looong time trying to get my hair to 'lay right' in the morning only to end up frustrated. Of course, natural hair has its struggles, too, but I spend a lot less time on my hair, and I like it a lot more.

And when I decided I was going to be au naturale, I was at a point where I wanted to be who I was/am and not who others thought I should be. I wanted to embrace myself fully, and I felt I couldn't do that with a relaxer.

I've been relaxer-free for three years and completely natural for two years. So...I'm happy to be nappy! lol
