Natural Hair on The Corner- Wash Day
It’s wash day for both of us. Idk why I didn’t do mine yesterday. Pray for my arm strength. This is my mini me’s hair, cropped his butt out lol. Yes I said his.
Women’s Fashion on The Corner- Zara Denim Swing Dress
Hello Loves! It seems like fall has finally decided to arrive in NYC. I pulled a few things out of the closet that have a heavier fabric. I’ve had this dress for a long time. Its probably close to 10 years old. I love how the thick, heavy denim was cut and tailored. The close fit of the bodice and the swing at the bottom has made it a go to piece for me over the years.
Since I’m one of the lucky people that gain weight mostly on my bottom half, this dress has been ale to fit whether I go up or down. Paired with my fav hunter green snakeskin Cesare Paciotti pumps, a jeweled necklace and some enamel bracelets, I was classy and simple yet chic. On my Whitley Gilbert from A Different World. lol. I’m feeling skirts and girly pieces these days. Let’s see where this goes.
What looks are you all going for this fall? Do tell.

Natural Hair on The Corner- I Went Green Literally!
When I was 14 I put my first color in my hair. Since then its been yellow, blond, red, orange, plum and sometimes three or four of these colors at once. Yes, way before Nicki Minaj wore colorful hair, I did it.
This year I kept saying I’m going to color my hair green. Everyone was like green? Side eyeing me and ish. But knowing the person that I am and how obsessed I am with the color, they knew I was going to do it. My mother said “oh yes that would be nice”. LOL
When I showed up on my birthday with these tresses, I was met with one word, DOPE! I love the color, in fact I may deepen it. My twist out was done with Eden BodyWorks’ new Coconut Shea Curling Pudding in Medium Hold. It was used on blown hair. I love the definition here and it smells amazing. It was moisturizing and my hair felt like a fluffy pillow. No crunch and munch like some curly puddings give you.
Well there you have it. I was knocked off my rocker for a while but I’m coming back to me. This is just the beginning. Ride wit me.
PS- I can’t use dyes on my hair. It breaks off. However, I’ve been bleaching it and changing the colors with semi permanent rinses for years. Deep conditioning is just a must.
Natural Hair on The Corner- High Buns, Animal Prints, Red Lips and My Edges
Hey there honeybuns long time no connect. I’ve been slacking in my blogging. Anywho, I’m currently rocking some ass dusting braids. Today, I wrapped them up in a messy bun. But that’s not the good part about this post. The good part is someone had thee nerve to ask me why my braids were fuzzy around the sides and looking as if they were growing out already. Its only been two weeks they said. I had to break something very important down to them.
I like my edges. Bottom line! I don’t braid my hair too tight (I do my braids myself for any newcomers) and those fuzzy pieces around the sides means I still have my EDGES. Be good to your edges and they will be good to you. Traction alopecia is real. But it won’t get me.
Ease up on tight styles. The buns, the braids, the twists and make sure their not pulling on your edges. Traction alopecia in most cases is not reversable and can happen very quickly. Let’s keep our hair and scalps healthy. Until next time.
PS- I think the red lip gave the animal print a kick. I love meshing odd color combos.
Natural Hair on the Corner- Chunky Single Braids
Brandy posted a pic of model/actress Lashontae in these chunky braids. These are hella awesome. My last round of braids were thick but not this thick. I wonder if they’re really heavy. Heavy are not they’re dope as shit.
After braiding my friend’s hair to her butt, I decided I wanted some. Yes, I’m rocking some that touch my maximus right now and I love them. I’ll post a pic as soon as I can get a decent one. I suck at selfies.
