Rihanna, Oprah, and Me!

What is life without setbacks? Without hiccups? Without unforeseen circumstances? @#$!, it's not life! I can be transparent and say I hit a rough patch. Well...more like a transitional period in my day to day life that has kept me from doing the things that I love, like blogging. Am I truly past or over that "rough" patch, I am not sure. Nonetheless, today I watched the latest Rihanna interview with Oprah and felt the need to share it with you all (although I am sure most of you have saw it). I have been a Rihanna fan for years  now, however watching the 45 minute video left me in awe. No matter how you feel about Rihanna's wild, bold, and audacious ways her poise and realness during this interview is admirable. I have trouble sharing matters of the heart  with friends, especially the type of matters that can be easily misunderstood (ie. Rihanna's current relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown) but Rihanna navigates this topic with equal amounts of grace and vulnerability. I am proud of my Bajan sistren.

Guess who's back...

Well people I'm back.  Actually I have been back from Barbados for about  a week but I finally can say I feel settled into my regular schedule. I have so much I want to share with you all ( I feel like I always say that -_- but it's true)! There are some  natural hair events on the horizon, some reviews I need to share, a rant about a particular airline, and of course pics from Barbados' Crop Over 2012.

I don't even know where to start....

Hair! As I promised earlier this summer, I am still rocking kinky twist extensions. This time however they are cornrowed into a high bun with a side bang. I wish I could say that I was in love with this style, but the truth is this is one of my least favorite hairstyles. When I envisioned myself in this style I pictured a huge dramatic bun coupled with a dramatic pompadour. Unfortunately, the hairstylist and I had two different visions and I ended up with this:

Cute....but I was going for more of a regal look, not cute. I tried dressing this style up a bit with a scarf as often as possible but no matter what I did I always had the same reaction, "I can't wait to take this @#$! out".

This style will no longer exist by this weekend and I will be giving the kinky twist extensions a rest for a while as well. Why? My hair needs to breath. Plus I have three boxes of Henna that I need to use before the end of this year! Waste not, want not!

That's all for now peeps! I'll be back shortly with some Crop Over reviews! What have you all been up to?
