I'm like the million other people that browse thought the gossip blogs wondering what's been happening with my favorite celebrities, good and bad... but WHY do we follow them the way that we do? Aren't our lives fulfilling enough? I have a heck of a schedule as it is.... what with school, being in the military and managing my small business on the side? Not to mention keeping my head on straight from these vultures and haters out here... but yet I can't go too long without going to my fave sites to check out the latest.... yes I do want to see what Rihanna is rocking, and mmh hmm I do want to see ALL the pictures of Amber Rose (she's so hot to me) as well as my girl Ciara (Hey CiCi!) ...plus get all up into who's dating who... but I guess it's just our escape... I know I definitely wouldn't mind having the access to the fabulosity that they all enjoy as well, so I daydream and take notes, lol.. Don't play like you don't....Til next time!

I hate when people refer to LOCKS as "dreads" or to people who wear them as a "dread head" or simply a "dread." It makes me think about dirty hair and other foul things.... I've always admired females who stepped outside of the relaxer box and went natural.... it's something that I've been thinking a lot about. I'm going to do it, I just don't know when... I want to take pride in what's naturally mine. I don't want to be like everyone else with the weaves going down my back and wishing I had really long hair... I'm happy with what I've been blessed with... not that there's anything wrong with accentuating your beauty (with a weave) because I do the makeup and the fashion, and I've been known to throw a phony pony and rock kinky twists or micros ...I like to get "fly" 2..... but why do I feel hesitant to cut my hair or go natural? Is it because I'm that concerned with what society perceives as beautiful and I want to be in that category? Every girl wants to be pretty, of course, but we make enough sacrifices to try and be beautiful already... so freak all of that. I can save so much money and probably make a positive impression on my sisters and friends. I think locks are beautiful and I've been living in Florida where they're really popular, so it just makes it that much easier to go ahead and do it.... I'll keep you guys posted. If you have locks or love 'em, give me a shout! Til next time!
