2012 Goals & Aspirations

Hey Ya'll. I hope that you all have been having a blast this holiday season! I have definitely been blessed to spend time with loved ones, comfort many, and bless others. I am so grateful! Now the time has come for me to decide on what my plan is for 2012. It's definitely time to leave some stuff behind and pick up more as I move into this new year. I already know that 2012 will be crazy to say the least: I'm getting married, me and my soon-to-be hubby are looking into purchasing our first home, and our 5 yr. old son will be starting kindergarten (NOOOOOO!). But even aside from all that, I have more ventures planned! Check out my goals & aspirations for the next year below!

Happy Holidays!!!!

Happy Holidays!!!!
This weekend, remember the reason for the season (Christ is Born!), and remember that it is better to receive than to give....give than to receive (*chuckle*), and that this time is a special time of year that is meant to be spent with loved ones, regardless of if it's your significant other, your family, your extended family, or......just you and the love that you have for yourself (that's o.k. too!). Be thankful for all that you have and have been given, as well as all that you don't have and have NOT been given. It's not at all chance. Happy Holidays and I hope you enjoy!

Tis the Season to be Jolly! - I'm a Natural Black Girl's FIRST Giveaway! - Winner Announced!!!!!

  I would like to thank all of the wonderful people across the blogosphere who allowed me to show my giveaway to the mountaintops LOL! It is just WAY too many names to name to be able to list them here, but they know who they are....THANK  YOU! Nevertheless, we I (I don't really know why I keep wanting to say WE as if there are multiple editors to this blog LOL!) did not receive many entries, which was possibly due to the fact that there were so many REQUIRED criteria. LOL! You had to have both a Facebook AND Twitter account, which many of my readers or passerby's don't have.

Well, I sincerely apologize for making the criteria so stringent, and will take this issue into consideration for the remainder of our giveaways! I will probably only use that criteria in the scenario that our giveaway prize is HUGE, maybe when I get on CurlyNikki's level and start giving away Christian Louboutins!!!!
So, you all are probably tired of hearing me jabber away, so without further ado, the winner is shown below by show of the rafflecopter results below!!!!

23 Adult Truths (***WARNING*** FUNNY STUFF AHEAD)

Happy Holidays!!!

I was searching through my Facebook news feed, and happened to come upon something seriously funny (just because it was seriously true...) and thought that I would share it with you all and hope that you get a laugh out of it, as well.

Wash Day Details!

Hey Lovelies!

I am back on to share the details of my most recent wash day experience. This time around, I chose to indulge in my Black Friday goodies from Oyin Handmade (review coming soon!)

For this washday, I had decided to skip the prepoo/pre-detangle, just to see how my hair would fare without it. I'll get into the details of that fiasco later. Anywhoo, I did this because recently, I decided to go through and play with my regimen to figure out what steps were necessary and which were not, and this was the first thing to go.

My Next Hair Style!

Ya girl, iknowlee on YouTube hooked me up on the inspiration tip with one of her latest videos. This is DEFINITELY what I will be rocking up until Christmas time. Thank ya, gurlie!!!!!

Wash Day Tomorrow!!!!

Hey Lovelies,
    I haven't been on my usual posting frenzy lately due to the Christmas Season craziness. I am also planning my wedding (April 14, 2012) which is adding to the craziness. But, I do know one thing: It's time for this hair to be done! My hair has been in this style for 2 weeks. It. is. time.

Who Defines Beauty?

I was directed to this Huffington Post article by way of Tomiko Frasier Hines (@GoddessTomiko) on Twitter. In it, it summarizes Aflonbladet's article coverage H&M's confession that they use computer-generated bodies and attach the heads of actual model's in some of their e-commerce print ads.

I Just Had to Share!

Eventually, you guys will discover that I am a fan of music. I actually like ALL types of music, including R&B (Bey is MY girl!), Modern Soul, 70's/80's music, Gospel, Christian Alternative, Country (Shania & Faith are my girls), club music, Hip Hop. I'm all over the globe.

But there are some songs that transcend genre and just cut to the very soul. And this is one of them. Enjoy.

I'm a Natural Black Girl's Wish List

Hey Lovelies!!!!
    With Christmas season arriving, I decided to help my fiancee' out, and give him a little something that will let him in on the things that I would absolutely loveeeeee to have (someday). Now, eventually, I'm going to purchase these items regardless. But, why not distribute my wishes to whomever might possibly be willing to buy them for me? LOL! I thought since I made a whole visual board, that I might as well share it with my readers.

AfricanExport Launches Blog!


I'm not sure if I've mentioned on this blog that I am addicted to natural hair YouTube videos. I watch them daily, and I absolutely love watching them do hair as I do MY hair.

Anywhoo, I have my list of favorites, and among them is definitely Ya Girl (My Girl....Errbody's Girl!) AfricanExport! ("The realest channel on the TUBE! - HA!) Her channel contains endless amounts of tips and info relating to natural hair, beauty, make-up, fashion, and even important matters within our communities (she also sings!). She has been mentioning that she had plans to launch her blog, and the time has come! I am definitely subscribing immediately. Nothing tickles my fancy more than a promising  blog - and her blog is definitely that.

Be sure to check it out, support her and subscribe!

Be sure to tell her I'm a Natural Black Girl sent ya!

Pond's Flawless White Advertisement.....FAIL!

Saw this video posted on For the Fabulous & Frugal

Ok......Are you freaking kidding me???? :-O @ the freeze photo comparison at the end, reinforcing the true "moral" of this advertisement. I'm seriously starting to believe the notion that some companies make ad's like this not because they actually believe ish like this is o.k., but because they know it's not, and will cause a stir, inadvertently attracting attention to their product. Whatever it takes to sell your brand, huh? Okayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy....
ETA: So, I finally watched the entire series (oh and btw, this isn't new. It's almost 4 years old and was based upon a case study) Read/watch about it here. So....are you REALLY marketing that dude ONLY recognized that he was in love with you when you started to apply a lightening creme to your skin???...That's how shallow love is nowadays???? SMH.
What are your thoughts?
