A Soulful Masterpiece

"Diamonds in the Back"

You ever just look at a painting and said "Dang, I feel that"? No? Okay maybe just me. Well when you look at Dawn Okoro's work if you don't feel that...well now there's just something wrong with you.

I stumbled upon her work from a natural hair site praising her for featuring natural hair and afro beauties. And since then I've been hooked. Her artwork has graced my phone wallpaper and is currently my wallpaper on my computer...okay okay I know I may sound like a total groupie but the girl is fierce with these paintings!

Never have I seen art that I feel paints a picture of how I feel or who I am. As a newly natural hair beauty (yes I chopped it off...updates coming soon!) I look at her Crown and Glory pictures and just get inspired and love all the crown and glory that I have. Hey I could talk about her stuff for days but let the art speak for itself!

"Turned Away"

"Shine 1"

"Saturday's Best"

"Shine 2"

And once I get my place (soon Jesus! Please?) Dawn's art will definitely be adorning my walls.

And check out more of her work (and her new project called 'Selfsploitation'-think Rihanna, Cassie and naked pics) at:

My, my, my...what else can I say about Shannon Brown. The end of the video did tick me off a bit, but I think it's obvious who she should choose. By the way, Monica=FABULOUS!

While this process of transitioning to natural hasn't been as bad as I thought, there is only one thing that is really grinding my gears....


I HATE them! They are especially all in my kitchen area (since 3 of my twists came out in the back).

So I'm always messing with it, which in turn is causing breakage which of course is the opposite of what I want to happen back there. I'm moisture in the AM and PM and use Mega-Tek every other day to continue to help with the growth.

Do any of my natural hair Queens have any suggestions? If so PUH-LEEZE let a girl know!

Retail Therapy

Monday, July 5, 2010 2
More like clean house therapy. Since I didn't have to work today I got up and decided to clean out my closet. Got rid of old things, found shirts that I could wear for work and even hung up my belts (this is big).

(Now to you this may not seem organized but to me...this is really really good for me).

And I couldn't have clean house therapy without some Target therapy...duh!

First I needed some new house shoes with a little pizazz...I think I scored. (Hello footsies!)

What I also really needed were shoes for work...cute FLAT shoes. And Xhilration and Mossimo never let me down.

I also adore Target's notebook selection. I'm definitely feeling their greenroom collection which uses recylced paper. (I feel like I'm doing my part to my planet)

A pen/pencil organizer from Real Simple.

And lastly a purple corkboard to but all my motivational quotes and bible verses. And I finally hung up my saying for life.

That's all for now Queens!

First off I'm truly thankful that I went from no work to so much work that I can't even contain it. No literally I can't. I barely have time for anything, even eating dinner. Yes when I'm on the grind, I grind...hard. (That sounded slightly...gross lol).

Good thing is I've had so many posts in my head so I'm using this marvelous Independence Day weekend to get it all out and then some. So I hope you queens are have a fantabulous weekend, enjoy the fireworks tonight, oh and please be sure to follow me on Twitter. Yes, yes I'm back on there, Facebook particularly isn't my cup of tea anymore.

But nonetheless follow me HERE!.
(Singing Usher's "Follow Me"...come follow me come follow me now...right noooow)
