Whenever I go into a makeup store or section (MAC, or Sephora, Holt R, The Bay) it’s the same old song. The make-up artist become so programmed. What do I mean? Well, agreeing with popular belief, other races have a hard time catering to african- american hair,and make-up.
Call me anti-social, but sometimes crowded place with people you aren’t familiar with can be very intimidating. Especially if it’s a crowd that looks like they came straight out of Vogue Magazine. I’m always envious of the person
When the weather gets nicer, I’m taking a walk down to Gerrard st. ( my neck of the woods) AKA Lil INDIA. I am buying a whole bunch of Jewelry!! The head piece and Hand jewelry that brides wears at indian weddings- I absolutely LOVE. Turbans have become a
Lately there’s been numerous videos about Women doing this, Men are this, Men need this from women or why woman are that… It seriously needs to stop. It’s a bunch of angry bitter rants tied in with negative experiences. I think the worse one I heard was
Well, it’s been just over a month, since I have fulfilled my epiphany of not adding any extensions to my hair. This month, has honestly been hard. A mixture of trying to find the right style, and coping with my appearance.
POSITIVE. I don’t want to be negative all the time about my post. My decision has it’s perks, but there are still things I love. So far, I feel better knowing I am able to be free
I blame my father for raising my expectations of men high. Sigmund Freud taught us that essentially daughters grow up wanting a man that portrays similar characteristics to her father. My dad is a good man, he treats my mother with the utmost respect, he is supportive, once very athletic (sorry dad), has ambition, wise , extremely funny plus much more phenomenal qualities.
You’re probably thinking - “what the hell, there are so many guys like that around”. WRONG!
A friend is usually seen or described as a companion or buddy someone that you can connect with on the same level. Negatively stating- friends are phases, some are long and some are short. There are various friend types – the givers , the takers, the moody,the relative-like, the fun … the list goes on.
Friends sit in our hearts. People are in denial of this statement because they protest to be emotionless or cold hearted to soften a blow. The truth is- Friends matter a great deal to us. Friends may have the strongest impact on you. What many of us fail to realize is that all of those friends will hurt you. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM.
I tried to make an impression. An important aspect of my life right now. Something minor to the other person , major to me. Apparently my explanation of certain aspects of myself just didn’t seem to sit right with them. Things traveled down hill from there. I already sensed their disbelief in my character, and lack of interest in my ambition.
I came across this website in Toronto’s Lou Lou Magazine Winter Edition 2011-2012 (Volume 8 Issue 8). Warning, this website is not for Shopaholics. You will become addicted! Can’t say I didn’t warn you ;)
If I could have the outfits & accessories or even look like 1/2 of the pictures I post on Tumblr, My life would be partially complete. Of course I say that from an ignorant First World perspective. Don’t judge me. I’m sure you all wish you looked or possessed majority of the stuff you blog about. Like that Chanel bag, Prada sunglasses, Alexander McQueen collection or the Marc Jacobs watch and that hugo boss suit….
No no no, don't you EVER feel like that. You know what the funny thing is? It isn't about your self-esteem.. It's about what society tries to make you think is right/wrong. I bet those girls on the bus were wearing some long-ass SYNTHETIC hair because they were too ashamed of who they actually are and what they were blessed with when they came into this world. At least you have the guts to show off your hair. It's beautiful whether it's long, or short. I'M PISSED LMAO.
Aww, thank you for your Anger !! I wanted to feel angry, instead I felt stepped on! Funny thing is, I do understand what you’re are saying about society and media playing a role on how we perceive ourselves as well as others. I’m just trying to surpass it and work on Loving myself. Hopefully one day I will be able to say I’m beautiful long or short haired. It’s a working progress. Thanks for the pep talk love !! X0X0X0
P.S I wish their hair was synthetic would’ve made it better. But sadly they were Caucasian with long flowing hair.
I was on the bus the other day, and two females entered looking at me very cat like. I continued to listen to my music on full blast. However, during transitions of songs, I overheard their conversation. One girl stated “I HATE GIRLS WITH SHORT HAIR, IT’S SO UGLY, HOW CAN ANYONE WEAR SHORT HAIR LIKE IT HAS TO BE LONG”.
