I miss you! #Natural Hair

Dear Readers,

I-yi-yi! I dont know where to begin to express how much I miss being a part of the natural hair community, hosting dicussions, attending meet -ups...and all that other #NaturalHair jazz! Life has been crazy busy: planning a wedding, planning for school, assignments for Grad School, finding time to just be me and maintaining friendshps around the world! But I'm doing it...and smiling the whole time..

So, as's a hair update and a few photos of where I've been!!

 Sadly, I don't have many photos of the last 6 months! You must understand that my hair has been tucked away unders turbans and scarves and I rarely wore it loose. Additionally, I haven't had a trim since August and my ends are a horrid mess. However, I just don't trust a new person with my hair and will continue to wear protective styles until I return home in July! I'll be eager to see the progress I've made without trimming my ends for a whole year.

So on to the photos that I do have...

This is my typical get up, roll out of bed, wash my face, head to school attire!Yep, a turban and a nicely ironed dress.
Take a look at all the features in this photos as well. Study it for a minute! Enjoy

November 11th, I know the specific date because I had just come from a wedding and took my hair out of my normal 4 braids to wear it pinned up. Bigger and bigger

Another style I wore under my turbans

My trip to Egypt!

In December I had my hair straightened. Planned to run into the hair salon, but didn't get there.


In December, I headed to Thailand, Malaysia and India. Decided to let the beast out of the cage!

This is in India, at the Taj Mahal. It was extremely foggy and thus I decided to wear it up.
Crazy street in Bangkok Thailand...This is BANG-KOK street!
Headed to a club in Abu Dhabi during the month of January, went with pin up!

 I have no clue as to why this picture will not turn! Nonetheless, I wore my hair in braids from January up until last week this time. Tomorrow I will post picture of my hair for March! Exciting!!

With love to last a lifetime,

    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my
    blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme.

    Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!
