Handle With Care

It’s been a while since I spoke to you in this vein, however I felt it was time to do so. You know that saying “it could always be worse” or “count your blessings”. After my mid morning scroll through Instagram it was brought to my attention that a well know naturalista, that has been missing in action for while, has been going through some serious health challenges. You may know her as Meechy Monroe of the Monroe Sisters.

“I know a lot of you have been asking about me. And I appreciate it. I’ve been M.I.A. for good reason. Recently, I was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor, a cancerous sarcoma, that caused my world to turn upside down in a matter of seconds.  Who knows how strong you have to be until you are faced with so many life changing decisions.” -Meechy Monroe

Hair Over Here

Prior to removing my yarn locs I spoke about my potential summer hairstyle here.

Well I finally got my hair installed Saturday morning. It took me a few glances in the mirror to recognize myself. The last time I wore weave has to be two years ago so this is a slight adjustment. I mean a quick tutorial on how to use a curling iron, paddle brush, and flexi rods. What have I gotten myself into!?

So much fun over these past few weekends!

Over the weekend I had a blast in New York stalking my brother, stuffing my face at my favorite pizza spot, attempting to catch some sun at the beach, and enjoying the city pre-rain.

What To Wear: 4th of July

Depending on where you are heading this weekend outfit options may vary.

You can throw on a pair of shorts and a basic white tee with a lavish necklace and a killer lip.

You may consider that nice maxi dress you picked up not too long ago, tousle your tresses, or keep it in a simple bun.

Everyones fashion sense is different and that’s ok. Not everyone is bold enough to throw on a crop and butt peaking shorts. There is nothing wrong with keeping it conservative. All in all be yourself. You can’t follow trends if they simply do not work for you. By work for you I mean you feel uncomfortable the entire time you are wearing that outfit. Or in some instances the entire time that outfit is wearing you.

See below for some options and consider what fits your style & budget! Continue reading
