What's In my Hair? | Commitment Issues | Natural Hair Talk


*sigh* I promise I'm not a Naturalista! At least not in the way you might think due to what you've seen out there. No, I wont go on marches to eradicate relaxers from the stores. No, I wont look at relaxed hair funny and assume because chemicals are in it, it can never be healthy. No, I wont judge anyone for loving all those products that are non-natural and mainly chemicals. So, No I'm not a Naturalista.

Color Blocking Fun: Pink + Red + Black

Once in a while, an outfit makes me happy so I post it. Today is one of those days. I cooked up this outfit for the shooting of Wats The Fuss season 2, episode 1, which we shot this last Sunday (to be aired on Feb 10th). We had a stylist on the team who gave us all (the hosts), 5 different trends to pick and work with. I ended up with the color blocking trend. 

I almost forgot I have always been a color blocker right from the get-go, matching colors was never my strong suit so I'd throw on totally random colors and walk outside looking like a rainbow. Back then I have to agree, my color blocking game was quite weak and all over the place so this time around I had to review what really makes color blocking work.

Dear Christians, Would You (We) Do More?

So I'm finna rant a bit here today...forgive me in advance. 
But Dear Christians, y'all need to do more...myself included! 

We are in this world but not of the world, so how do we make it work?

Feels like we are tip-toeing when we turn on the TV, go shopping or perform other day-to-day activities. The struggle to find what fits us, what our spirit is okay with, what could be a form of edification to our souls, is just too real. It's almost like we are a minority....and we are actually not!

Amazing Christian Songs to Dance & Bust a Couple of Moves To

I do love me some Lecrae! Photo via Chron
Yesterday I found myself in a situation where I felt like I was compromising on some music I had to listen to, so I started really missing christian songs to actually dance to. Not the side-to-side body movements kind of dance, but actually stepping-sliding-pop-locking kinda dance. lol. 

If you've ever been a dancing kind of person and back in the days (before salvation) would absolutely turn it up in the club or house parties then you can agree you've been given the gift of dancing. I truly believe this to be true for me even though Mr Punch keeps telling me I have no moves. LOL!

Temptations

Not to bust your bubble but, everyone faces them. This is life and it's unavoidable! 

1 Corinthians 10:13 NASB: No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

But what makes Christians different from others is that we have Christ and in him we overcome. He is faithful and has assured us in his word that;

Humbling Toronto

Eish, this city of Toronto is something else, actually it is HUMBLING! Today is one of those days I found myself applying for entry level jobs and even doing the door-to-door resume drop off for the first time ever. And yes, this is why I said this city is quite the humbling spot for me.

It's been basically 9 months since I moved from Chicago and so that makes it 9 months I have spent in the unemployment market. To be honest with you, I did not see this coming at all - in my mind, with my degrees and 3 years work experience I would be good to go. Well this city surely had something else up it's sleeves. There are days I don't let it phase me though, I just relax, focus on the wedding blog and wonder what life would be like if Knotsvilla suddenly starting bringing me some correct income. But other days like today, where it is freezing outside and I am moving from building to building dropping off my resume - heck yeah, I am so phased right now!

So what inspired this door-to-door resume dropping today?
