Office Style: Smokin Hot AFRO

My friend and collegue Cyrstal really knows how to incorporate her afro into her office style.

She is gorgeous and I definitley have afro envy!  Crystal always dresses impeccably and knows how to accessorize her looks. With the weather getting cooler putting a long colorful jacket over a simple black dress is a great way to update your look for the fall.

The thing that I love most about her is that she is not afraid to try different styles with her natural hair. She will definitely be featured on Naturally Curvaceous again!

Random Rant: Wash N Go – OH NO!

My texture is to be considered 4C, I like to call is “4Z” because it is sooooo coily that every time I attempt a wash n go it looks great when wet but then just dries into an afro with no curly pattern to be seen. Does anyone else have this problem? Are there better products to use on my 4Z hair for the ultimate wash n go? HELP ME, PLEASE!!!!!

Yes, I did the BIG CHOP (actually twice!)

I know there is much discussion over to do the BIG CHOP or not. I have been natural for 2 years and during my transition period I got so tired of trying to deal with the 2 textures – the new growth of natural hair and the old relaxed, straggly hair that was just hanging out on my ends. I was hard to create a decent hair style with these 2 textures so one day I cut about 80% of the relaxer off but I was scared to cut it any shorter. About two weeks went by and I decided why not – so I did! It was the best thing I ever did for my hair. Finally getting rid of all of the relaxer made me feel free! I wanted to shout from the mountain top that all of the creamy crack was gone.

Everyone has to do what is best for them but for me it was the BIG CHOP all the way!

My name is Yani and I am brand new to the blogging scene. I am starting this blog to share my thoughts on natural hair, being curvaceous, finding style bargains in thrift stores or flea markets, weight loss (or lack there of), my love of food, which could be the problem with the weight loss and just my random thoughts on anything that may pop into my mind.

I currently reside in Capitol Heights, MD. I am the mother of just one 10 year old boy who is the love of my life. I am recently engaged so I will not be offering any dating advice but I may give my thoughts on how to keep a relationship going.

I am a very simple woman that likes to keep as many¬†“coins” in my pocket as possible. So I will share some of my frugal ways with you in hopes to keep the “coins” in your pocket too.
