Move over, there’s a new Sheriff in town!

I might not be a serial victim of breakups but I find that anytime I need to wear a different personality, I go for a change of hairdo. So maybe typically for blacks, we don’t have the luxury of cutting out hair at will for fear of slow growth but trust me, there’s a younger, better and more refreshing feeling it gives on the inside. I have cut while it was at its prime once and it felt so good. … More Move over, there’s a new Sheriff in town!

I figure it should be as simple as treating my body right by being conscious of what I put in my body and what I use on my skin. … More Treating my body right

Staying sexy in the midst of a busy schedule

If you ever want an example of a perfect multitasker, look at the life of a woman. Whether or not we want to, we have to do it all – clean the house, take the kids to school, help with homework, make dinner, satisfy the husband, be outstanding at work and make everyone happy. In the midst of this crazy busy schedule, it can be difficult to feel sexy. Many times we feel stressed, overwhelmed, and not well appreciated which leaves us feeling anything but sexy.

A friend was asking me recently how I find a balance juggling it all. To be quite honest, I don’t know but it is important to realize that feeling and looking good comes from the inside out then it doesn’t become another chore. You must first feel good with yourself on the inside and then it radiates on the outside. So, here are some quick and easy ways to shift your way of thinking and get your sexy back. … More Staying sexy in the midst of a busy schedule

Importance of sex in a relationship

Hi people!
How are y’all doing? Enjoying your weekend? I am, having spent a well-deserved quality time with my family today and the weekend just got started.
Sometime during the week, I had been moody and overwhelmed. I looked forward to some alone time with my husband, at least for the obvious importance (to refresh ) but before I could fantasies, I tried to slap the thought out of me and focus on work instead. Well, that was before I read this post supposedly by Leslie posted by Eddaz.
I recall someone asking my opinion on a controversial write up she wants to put up titled ‘let’s negotiate sex’. Well, I told her the content is what will really determine whether it’s controversial or not but of course, first reactions and impressions would be drawn based on the word sex in the title.
So what is it that draws people or intrigues us about sex? Well, for one thing, it does have its many advantages. It aids a good night sleep, refreshes, rejuvenates, and brings couples closer, building intimacy and reassurance and confidence. Confidence in self-esteem and confidence in your relationship. They say kisses and cuddles a day lengthens a life-span, however true that is. I advised a friend who’s had flu for about a month to get things steamy with her husband after she lamented that all the drugs were not relieving her. I suppose she took my advice because when I saw her in the morning, she was not only glowing, the flu was gone and she just looked altogether new. That’s what sex does. Of course, it opens easier line of communication with your partner and whatever you were not able to freely discuss before, becomes easier afterwards.
We women like to be modest about our desires, that’s fine I suppose. But holding back too much is like wearing a bra while having sex. We know that won’t get you and your partner the well appreciated and hotter perspective. So embrace how you feel, how sex makes you feel and enjoy a healthier longer life and relationship.
Have a sexy weekend y’all. … More Importance of sex in a relationship

The beauty of her hair

To a large extent, I’ve learned a lot being a mother on my own. I would have loved for my mom to be around to school me through it but my husband and I have been pretty much independent in this parenting business and I must say that we haven’t done badly even though we are still learning through it by the day.
So contrary to what I grew up believing, I haven’t cut off my daughter’s natural birth hair. Although her hair till date is kinky soft, it gets me all worked up when a new plaits her begins to look old just after the first day. Adding to the color of her hair which is more like dirty brown, it makes it even difficult to appreciate any good plait on her.
I resolved to texturize her hair, perhaps it’ll give her rough edges some silky smooth but I really do want to keep to my word that I will only do that after she’s 5 years old and if it becomes unbearable to manage. So far, I have it under control, it’s just the glossiness and neatness that’s lacking. My hair stylist assured me all her tiny hairs will fall off eventually and I’ll love it but that might be when she’s about 10 years old. Yikes! Another 6 years to go. Until then, I choose to believe and see the unique beauty of her hair.
If there are other African moms working with their daughter’s kinky hair, please share tips on how to keep innovating or maintaining the beauty of it.
Cheers! … More The beauty of her hair
