Maya Angelou

Shadows on the wall
Noises down the hail
Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Bad dogs barking loud
Big ghosts in a cloud
Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

Mean old Mother Goose
Lions on the loose
They don’t frighten me at all

Dragons breathing flame
On my counterpane
That doesn’t frighten me at all.

I go boo
Make them shoo

I make fun
Way they run

I won’t cry
So they fly

I just smile
They go wild
Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

Tough guys in a fight
All alone at night
Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

Panthers in the park
Strangers in the dark
No, they don’t frighten me at all.
That new classroom where
Boys pull all my hair
(Kissy little girls
With their hair in curls)
They don’t frighten me at all.

Don’t show me frogs and snakes
And listen for my scream,
If I’m afraid at all
It’s only in my dreams.

I’ve got a magic charm
That I keep up my sleeve,
I can walk the ocean floor
And never have to breathe.
Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Not at all

Not at all
Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

As promised, a shot from the hair shoot I did a few weeks back.
Fun times.

It's like I was living
But I wasn't aware
I was alive
But I wasn't really there

from me to you.

I celebrated a day early at the Broccoli City festival in DC; such a dope event. There were live grafitti mural paintings, performances by Big KRIT, organic food trucks and yoga workshops. The overall vibe was fun and peaceful, with people from all walks of life coming together to celebrate this beautiful planet we live on!

( SIDE NOTE: DC is really starting to put together some nice events. Looking forward to seeing what the summer has in store. )

I like this.. there were over 100,000 tags as of 2pm.
shows you're not in it alone. 
stolen from instagram.

The release of the much anticipated single, "QUEEN," Janelle Monae x Erykah Badu (!!!). A new year of life, and the Jamaica trip to celebrate it.

This stage in my life. So much around me is changing and it's just like a mass of uncertainty, anxiousness, excitement and possibility is hovering on me. There's nothing like change to come along and completely shake up complacent living. I'm all about it. All things ankara, ikat and geo.

Longevity, Something real. You to know. To transition to "clean living" (diet, beauty regimen, etc.) To do a better job of crossing things off of my bucketlist this spring/ summer. To add at least $5,000 to my savings by the end of the year.

More time with my thoughts.. a busy lifestyle will have you running from them so much so, that when you do finally have that rare moment to yourself they overwhelmingly come rushing in. A stimulating conversation.

Obsessing over:
My new found love for my 'natural'.. so laid back and easy. Pastel hued mani/ pedis. Redecorating my new living space; I'm taking the morrocan theme seriously. I'll post pics as it comes together. The what if's.

So much beauty around us.

tee's are in!

support the movement.

take one.
RapidLash Eyelash and Eyebrow Enhancing Serum (0.1oz)

I swear by this stuff. Who needs false lashes when you can grow your own? I came across this stuff when a question was posed to internet beauty guru, ItsMyRayeRaye, about how she maintains her full thick brow and long 'spider lashes.' I must say that since I've been using it my lashes are a lot longer than I remember, and I've even been asked if they were in fact 'my' lashes.

not the best picture.. lol, but you can definitely see the length. I wish I had a before pic to show the progress.

no falsies necessary! :)

Woke up this morning to a text message from my favorite LA transplant and sister, Celeste, letting me know that my 'Tribe' sweatshirt made it onto West Coast rapper Skeme's instagram.
