"Not This Hair"



"Not This Hair
Not This Skin 
But The Soul That Lives Within"

 - Rumi

This beauty here, I've photographed her a few times and she always rocks some beautiful sewn-in locks.

SIMPLE PLEASURES.




Today I'm doing alright. In fact I'm doing great!

This little blog of mine has been featured on BUZZFEED! I mean I just started 5 months ago and I've got 2 press mentions? (HERE for Buzzfeed and HERE for Black Fabulousity as one of their "14 favorite things of 2014").

Beyond humbling, I tell you.

No pecuniary benefits accompanied these. I say this so you will understand that for me, pleasures come from the simplest things.

Please recognize someone's effort today, you might just cause a smile the size of mine!

Cheers :)

INFLUENCES.


I like Ed Sheeran's music because...well...it's pleasant to the auditory senses.

She here, tells me she's also a big fan of Mr. Sheeran's music. And then she also tells me she's a hopeless romantic. So I began to wonder...

FRESH AIR.





Good week so far, everyone?

For my corner, I'm mighty glad about the reduced tension in the atmosphere, now that the elections have been postponed. 

Was it just me who felt like people's voices were getting more hardened and opinions becoming aggressive and heated during the days leading up to the postponement?

THE LOVE PREACHER.




With all the buzz going on about the postponement of the Nigerian elections, the subject of celebrating St. Valentine's Day is everywhere. 

A school of thought opines that Valentine's Day is "too commercial". Now can I just say that is the greatest tonne of bull-duty I've heard in a while?

I have a question...

ALWAYS REMEMBERED.



There's this a quote I saw somewhere and it reminded me of her.

It goes:

CHIC!




Spotted her at the parking lot after church.

She is chic! Chic is she!

DRESS THE PART.


You know those slightly infuriating people who get invited to an all-white party...and then show up in purple? Because they're too deep and too cool to conform?

If you're one of those, I'll be that person who comes up to you with a deliberate stare.

BREEZY COUPLE.


On their way.

"Tres chic right now".

And that is all :)
