The parents are played by Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson. It's a 30 minute comedy that airs every Wednesday at 9:30 PM EST. Black-ish is about a couple struggling to raise their Black children as ---- yes, Black children. They live in the suburbs, are upper middle class, and just don't have the same Black culture/lifestyle that they had Continue Reading

In Case You’ve Lost Track Of All The Recent Celebrity Divorces

Jordin Sparks & Jason Derulo

I know that celebrities are always separating and divorcing, but for some reason, it feels like, there has just been so many separations and divorces recently. Usually, we hear about one divorce/separation, and then we have a couple months to talk about it before the next one, but now there are too many being talked about. I can't even put a post for each one. So in no particular order, here are the recent divorces and separations that I know of/remember. 1.  Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey: Continue Reading

My Weekend Recount: Faith’s Wedding In Pictures

At last, a picture of Faith and her husband

This weekend, like all weekends, went by so fast. In addition to that, I was so busy. Doing my hair for two days took a chunk out of my time. I didn't even get my nails done till Saturday. I usually do it on Thursdays because everyone else is there on Friday and Saturday. In case you haven't seen it yet, here's my post about what I wore to the wedding, and here's my post about how I did my hair AND how my hair got me Chinedu's number --- technically. Friday: I attended a stage play in the Continue Reading

Thanks To My Hair, Chinedu Wants My Number

Hair-in-rollers-feature

Remember when I went to Faith's wedding? Of course, you remember, the post went up only yesterday. Thank you for the compliments on the hair. I have received so many compliments on and offline. Just yesterday, someone said to me, "Oh, you finally decided to wear your hair down, it's beautiful." She thought it was my natural hair, and I just couldn't break her heart by telling her the truth. Ha! Okay, so my hair was done via crochet braiding, and it was done by my sister-in-law, Nyambe. She's Continue Reading

What I Wore To Faith’s Wedding

What-I-Wore-8

This past weekend, I attended Faith's wedding. Faith is a friend that I met in church some years ago, and she's just really sweet. I like her a lot cause my spirit agrees with her. I don't know how else to describe it, but sometimes you meet people and your spirit likes them, too. Faith is one of those people. I think we have an older sister-younger sister understanding, too. Anyway, Faith got married to her love, and Igwe and I were there to witness it. We missed the ceremony, but we made the Continue Reading

Ideal-Image-Stress-Balls

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. Remember last week when I told you that I'll be getting a laser treatment? I bet you thought I was joking. Well, I wasn't. I got it done on October 4th. It was a Saturday morning and my appointment was at 9:30 AM. I got there about 10 minutes early. I made myself a cup of coffee and sat down to fill out the medical history form. Jacqueline was there to welcome me. I met her during my free Continue Reading

He Said He Wants To Marry Me

Chiwetel Ejiofor: He's not the one who wants to marry me, but I need a picture to associate with this post ... plus a girl can dream, no?

I was speaking to my mommy yesterday and she told me that an interesting thing happened. I asked her what it was and she told me that a man from Umunze (I think it's in Anambra) came to speak to her. He told her that his very good friend wants to marry me. I didn't hear what my mom said, or maybe I didn't want to believe that I heard what she said, so I kept asking, "He wants to marry who?" I asked her this question four times until  mom was practically screaming, "You!" She repeated, "He wants Continue Reading

From the moment I started consciously reading more about natural hair and growing it and maintaining it, I have been hearing about Hairfinity. Outside of the blogosphere, people who know I'm a blogger continue to ask me what I think about Hairfinity. Just to be clear, Hairfinity isn't only for natural hair. For those who have never heard of or don't know enough about Hairfinity, Hairfinity is a nutritional supplement formulated with essential nutrients for healthy hair. This hair Continue Reading
