lately I've been following along a few celebrities at some events and have completely feel in love with their looks. Here are a few of my favorites from different events, some are recent some are oldies.

If you walk into a hair salon you see most young girls and women getting their hair straightened. Going through numerous processes just to get it silky and not “nappy”. Constant pain from hot combs, tugging from the washing and the biggest and baddest of them all, getting heat damage. I was one of those girls almost 2 years ago. Every Saturday my mom would take me up to the salon to get a “blow and go” (straightened hair) and it would take at least half of the day. I not gonna lie, my hair came out beautiful every time and I received an overload of compliments, but I wasn't truly confident with myself back then. Getting my nails and hair done didn't mean anything to me. It did not help lift my head up any higher.

so I know all my naturalistas out there know or at least have heard of the pineapple method. If you haven't basically it's an excellent way to preserve any style such as wash-n-gos, bantu knots, twist-outs and braid-outs. It’s a simple method that can be used by curly girls of varying lengths and textures, but it's much easier for curly heads who have long hair. For my awkward stage girls out there, here's what I do to maintain 2nd,3rd and 4th day hair!

Hey fabulous people,it's been a minute since I did an OOTD, and although this outfit was not the one I wanted to have a comeback with, it perfectly fits today's mood. To start off the week, I wanted to be productive with everything I needed to do and wanted to do and I've done just that today. This looks speaks "effortless fall". Adding khaki to a fall must have (plaid button down) was the move. I was comfortable, in season and put no effort into it!

I want to first start off by saying this is not to bash or offend any other race. Nor am I a racist or anything like that. I am pro-Black/afrocentric but that does not mean anti-white, Mexican, Indian etc. I love everyone and respect where they come from. Diversity is a beautiful thing and I'm blessed to have such a variety of cultures in my life right now. Just a little inspiration for Black woman out there.Also I;m not going in too deep with this post. This is just a board post speaking on Black people.
Often as Black females, we tend to forget how gorgeous our melanin is. And at times it's a struggle for someone like myself to believe that I'm beautiful while I'm living in a "whitewashed" society. Growing up I wanted to be light skin so bad. I thought mixed girls had it good with having curly hair (little did I know every Black girl can have girl curly) and the "perfect shade of skin". Also, I hated the fact that I had African in my blood. Most of my family is caramel/light and only a few of us who are brown/dark. I didn't see any examples of dark beauty till I reached sophomore year. I think young Black girls are shown too much of other races in their toys and tv shows/movies than their own. It took me till sophomore year of high school to realize how beautiful Black is. And how majority of my life I've been in absence to see how gracious God made us. Black is beautiful. From the curve of our bodies to our eternally youthful skin (Black don't crack), so here are some of my favorite photos and a little inspiration to show you why our Black is Beautiful.

I'm super late on doing this buuuttt, before I dive in lets go over the list I had for my October Goals.
Lovely Brianna, you've completed only 3...
October has really been a slack off month for me, fitness, school, blogging, work, church and leisure wise. I don't know what I did all of October. I've been giving myself reality checks here and there making sure I get it back together but it's not working. Junior year is definitely the blame right now. It spells PROCRASTINATION and speaks, "That's not important, go ahead and relax." And that's exactly what I've been doing. I don't know why I feel overwhelmed by doing nothing though. BRIANNA GET IT TOGETHER. This month I plan do exactly that ; get my life together.
