Today at 2:02 PM
I wanted to cut my hair short, just like Marguerite in ‘100 foot journey’ (good movie by the way).
I showed the picture to my hair dresser. She laughed and then she said ‘no’. My hair dresser speaks mostly Spanish so for emphasis she had to repeat ‘no’ very clearly. There was no room left to interpret her response as a ‘maybe’ or a ‘light weight yes’.
She said I don’t have the neck for it. (Yes, I spent the entire night examining my neck)
Anyway I am cutting my hair slowly but surely so I can ease myself into a bob, I am very certain that I won’t ever be team natural (I support team natural, you guys are awesome! Those curls are so enviable) but I don’t have the energy for Bantu knots! Plus I had my time as a GirlArion (a girl with cornrows like Omarion from B2K) in secondary school. Team relaxer!
Has this ever puzzled you… Where do men keep their ‘hand bag things?’ Like how deep are those trouser pockets? Where do men who don’t carry man bags (it’s actually a thing) keep their phones, phone chargers, books, wallets, lip balm, lint-rollers, spare socks, and some tissues when they leave the house? My Pa is a classic example. He pulls things out of his pockets but I never see his pockets bulge with stuff. Those pockets can swallow a car! Tell us the secret? My shoulders could certainly use a break!
Have you listened to Jessie Ware? I promise you this…you’ll fall in love! Where has she been my whole life! You know I don’t keep good things from you.
Here’s a recommendation ‘say you love me – Jessie Ware’ and then listen to all her albums. GOLD.
Any words to inspire us? Hmm… Why am I blank? Must be all this heat from the drier sucking out the contents of my brain!
- Well, just don’t forget to live. Be purposeful with your days.
- Tip tip tip even when it hurts, or stay home and eat a humble meal.
- Look people in the eyes when you speak to them (I have been practising this) it shows that you’re present and that you see them.
- Tell yourself that you’re beautiful because you are. You don’t have to wait for someone to tell you! Your Creator saw you and He said that you are good. You have His royal seal of approval. Own it!
Don’t forget to DANCE! *plays Lingala*
Happy birthday Sasha, Inky, Abraham, Lulu, Kase, Raf
