for love and lemons skivves

i’ll never forget years ago when i was in college in nyc and my cousin tasia came to visit. we caught the train down to century 21. we strolled around the store being our normal extra silly selves and landed in the lingerie section. we were joking around, picking up thongs and bras like, “oooooo…girl, do you like this ling-er-eeeee??” and this older white woman stopped near us and said, “it’s pronounced lohn/zhu/ray.” ummmmm. okay. we fell out laughing!! did she really think we didn’t know? haha!! two snaps to the old chick trynna school two young black girls.

but anyhoo, that brings me to this post. ultra girly, ultra fem, for love and lemons skivves is super sexy and fab ling-er-eeeeeeee!!

let the dream wave continue.

steps up to the mic *tap tap tap* hellooooooo, is anyone out there??

ahem… i know i’ve been gone quite some time. well, life happens and sometimes those happenings drain all of your inspiration and creativity and willingness to do any daggone thang.

but…

i’m back. back-er than back. now usually during this time of year i’m busy making stuff to give folk for Christmas, but i just don’t have it in me to eek it out this year. so instead, i’m compiling a dream list of thangs. maybe it’ll inspire you and give an idea or two for that special someone in your life! or you can ride along with me on the dream wave. either/or.

so here to kick off the dream wave is vanessa mooney‘s lovely jewelry. i’ve been a fan of her work for quite some time because her creations are just soooo dope. no other way to describe it.

purple curly locs

i remember telling one of my girlfriends last year that i wanted to dye my hair purple. she thought i was nuts. her reaction wasn’t a huge deterrent because right off the bat i realized that she’s a bit more conservative than me so i understood why she wasn’t really seeing my purple hued vision.

it’s cool. everythang ain’t for everybody.

the only reason i decided not to dye my hair is because i’ve been on a gig hunt since i was laid off and my guess is that purple hair isn’t that widely accepted in the office place.

conformity sucks.

my purple urge came back strong the other day when i saw tarenguy’s pic on instagram. her purple super curly hair is gorgeous!! i just LOVE how it looks on her!!! i’ll have to live vicariously through her until i safely land in a place of employment. then i can put them in a state of shock and awe when i dye my hair purple my second week there.

here’s taren’s youtube vid of her dying her hair using manic panic.

curly haired girls

back in january i mentioned growing my hair out but i never posted an update about how when the weather turned warm i chopped it all off again. i’m so used to having short hair that with it longer mixed with the heat…whew!! a sista couldn’t deal.

well, now it’s the end of summer and the temps have already dropped a smidge. now i’m ready to let it grow out again. i think. 😉

here are some of my curl hair inspiration pics i’ve collected on pinterest.
