I’ve put together a gift guide of products for men and women with natural hair for those just getting started or veteran natural hair enthusiasts. There are various price points to choose from on this list and many of these are great for family members, co-workers, and friends alike. These are the best natural hair gifts for the holiday season.
I didn’t grow up with a father, so I find myself particularly touched emotionally when I see stories that depict healthy father-daughter relationships.
In response to the 2020 Oscar winning short film, Hair Love, I chose to recreate the faux hawk hairstyle in the film. Hair Love is an animated film about an African American father trying to do his daughter’s hair for the first time. The film was created by Mathew A. Cherry.
This Get Ready With Me (GRWM) video shares my reaction to the film while doing my hair and sharing my personal experience growing up without a father. This film is FANTASTIC and well deserving for the 2020 Oscar.
I’ve taken some time to put together a shopping list of items from my favorite affordable retailers. Boohoo is currently having a 60% off everything sale. Gap has 50% off everything, plus an extra 10% off coupon on the homepage of their site that is applied immediately with the click of a button
I don’t want to toot my own horn too much, but I’ve come up with some pretty dope gifts for the women in your life that love fashion. Not only are they fabulous, they’re all under $100 – except one item that is $136. Everything on this list, I would buy. In fact, many of the items are similar to things I have in my closet today. Take a look…

Cyber Monday is here once again, so it’s time to stock up on styles that look great on your athletic body. Most female muscular body types are broad in the shoulders, and narrow in the hips. This creates a kind of “inverted triangle” shape. The less amount of hip you have, the more important it is to find bottoms that create fullness along the pevlis.
Eating anything under 300 calories during Thanksgiving, that isn’t plain lettuce, seems impossible. Especially at holiday gatherings where taste, not health, seems to win the day. That’s why I’ve put together two healthy snacks under 300 calories that are perfect to bring to parties. They are meatless, affordable, healthy, and easy to make. Between these two dishes, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The Holidays are upon us and credit cards are lit. Yes, LIT. This is the most expensive time of the year, and our bank accounts deplete with every check mark on the “nice list.” Yes, being generous has a cost and retailers love a generous heart. It seems we have two choices, give big and go broke, or scrooge it up and keep our coins.
If you don’t have the heart to do the latter, the question becomes, how can one give without going broke in the process? Here are a few very practical and easy tips and tools to help you keep your heart and your wallet in check.
