25 Random Things About Mee: A Birthday Post

I’ve clocked a quarter century!!! You can’t talk to me anyhow anymore oh. Now on my grown woman shii.

Leading up to my 25th birthday, I was not as excited as I usually am about birthdays in general. It was not a sober feeling, just more gratitude than anything else. I aged a lot on the inside right before my 24th birthday and so my 24th year was spent doing a lot of adjusting to this person I had been forced to grow into and reconciling that with who I desire to be. Womanhood is such a gift and if I was not certain before, I know now that if I had to choose, I will always choose to be a woman in this skin. I love it. Like I told AB, it finally feels like I have attained a strong and stable foundation after 25 years and so now, I’m ready to build higher and higher and higher knowing that what I have at the base can take it all.

I was lucky to spend my birthday weekend in New Orleans with my roommate. NOLA has quickly become my favorite place and so now, I would like to make it there at least once a year, since I have been once every year in the last 3 years. I saw that Klassy Kinks did an instagram post with 26 things about her right before her 27th birthday. I thought that was a fun and light post. So here are 25 random things about me:Read More

LOL okay lady. What if it was?? What would you have done? 😛

Just kidding. Let’s go off on a bit of a tangent today. Let’s talk about perfection.Read More

DIY Dyeing for Natural Hair

I dyed my hair. Again! I think you can now expect that at least once in the year, I will come to you with some new colour I am trying out. My first experience with bleaching and dyeing was pretty great. Remember when I talked about it here? I went back to my colorist one more time after that and when my bank account began to cry, I determined that there had to be a way to do this for cheaper. And hey! It does not get much cheaper than DIY, innit!Read More
