Greetings and welcome!♥We all have demons within us that we have to learn how to minimise them and put them in proper perspective so they aren't a detriment to our being, our character. We can't, however, deal with themif we refuse to first acknowledge their existence. Humans tend to put off dealing with anything that's unpleasant and so, think if unpleasantnessis ignored, it will somehow magically work itself out but nothing ever gets resolved by ignoring it, whatever it may be.♥ PNG url:https://1.bp.b... read more »

A Bantu Knotted Week

Photo by Jaclin Paul There's this issue that has been brewing in my mind for some time now. This issue is on certain African hairstyles, such as, Bantu knots or plaiting (cornrows). Lately I've been noticing that I don't see a lot of women wearing these hairstyles with pride. It seems like the only time we do these hairstyles is when we're either trying to curl, crochet or weave hair in. Bantu knots are known especially for curling the hair, while the plaited hair is used for curling, crochet or weaves... read more »

The Shortest…

There’s a nasty little section of every high school yearbook ironically called the “Superlatives.” It’s nasty because sometimes seldom if ever are these labels accurate even months after graduation and sometimes not even by the time you’re scrambling to have everyone you might never see again sign your yearbook.
