Love me some Obama

History in the making...
Senator Barack Obama has accepted the Democratic nomination for President of the United States and Joe Biden as his running mate.

[Me tryin' to kiss Sen. Obama on the cheek at the TV but Barack kept movin'...almost got his mouth (don't beat me up Michelle...just a friendly kiss of support was my intention)-- my husband (a non-Obama supporter) captured the pics]
 

Barack Obama was short on specifics as to how he would affect CHANGE in his DNC speech, but I don't see that as a BAD THING. Why get into the specifics when you don't have the "full deck of cards in hand" you'll be dealing with in Washington?? To delineate "the how" NOW could only stand as ANOTHER thing to slam Barack about when he may have to CHANGE his approach in light of new information, factors, and circumstances for which he will have NO PRIOR knowledge about UNTIL he is faced with "classified" information that only those in the Presidential circle are privy to.

For now... I'm impressed with Senator Barack Obama because he's in my age range (I'm 40 he is 44), father of ALL daughters as I am, and I just trust that when he says he plans to make America a place for his daughters (however he PLANS to do it SPECIFICALLY) he will. Further, he has support from those who have started to think in a different way about issues such as alternate fuel sources, sustainability, healthcare, education, etc. Those looking for real solutions for the biggest problems we have ever had in the world. My prayer for Barack is that he will ALWAYS have SOUND COUNSEL around him to make and carry out the tough decisions to come (Do you sense me already "crowning him" President of the USA here.) I pray he will develop and strenghthen his innermost spiritual being such that he may tap into it moment by moment and thereby NOT fail in the end. I fully trust that Michelle has his back and that the smiles and love of his own daughters WILL keep him moving forward-- for CHANGE.

Hello there, I'm a member of NSN and you came to mind when a client was talking about make-up for women of color. She looked over the website because she can not use bismuth oxidesomethinglikethat. Can you please email her carlyn_ray@yahoo.com. Does she have to buy directly from you or on the website. Thank you, Carmen

Length to Short Bob Sisterlocks Hairstyle

Well, it has been about 2 years since my last post... (seems I'm mostly on my personal Facebook page and Google+ not to mention working towards completing my doctoral degree expected 2015 WhoopWhoop... but, I digress...)

Here's what up... As the title suggests, I have gotten my length of 9 years cut into an Angled Bob. Now, while I had envisioned my Bob having a definite wedge from the side view... I guess my hair is just to fine to REALLY STACK HIGH naturally. That being said I do like my cut, but I was tickled by it because truly 'all things old become new again'. What I mean is that I HAD a permed Bob with a very short cut nape of my neck upon having my Sisterlocks installed back in 2005...and looking at my hair in 2014 it seems that I have started where I had come back then! (See the pic)
Of course, THIS TIME the hair on the top of my head is chemical-free!! 
This is ME with all my daughters...we all rock natural hair. My two SL'd daughters-- 2girlsbigsister (i…

Coloring Sisterlocks Cognac-ish

I'm glad our WATER BILL was paid... I colored my Sisterlocks! Which is a hellava RINSING process with Sisterlocks... WHEW!  I have used semi-permanent color or rinses before, but never a permanent color like this one. Just tryin' to make sure I rinsed all product out of my SLs, I MUST have emptied our hot water tank for sure!  :-)


As much as I LOVE sistahs who really go TRUE golden, auburn or copper with their locs, I'm still not that bold... YET!  If I EVER DO IT, I'll probably get it done by a professional.What I really like in hair coloring Sisterlocks not withstanding is that TRUE tortoise shell 3-tone effect. That's a GOOD LOOK!! I think that requires some bleaching/highlighting  that I'm NOT particularly comfortable with... at least, not as this time. It would seem to me that a sistah would be tempted to color much more often than perhaps she might have originally expected to maintain the effect.  Anywhoooo... not yetfor ME is all I can say...

Pipe Cleaner, Spoolies, and Wrap-A-Loc Tool Sisterlocks Spiral Curls

Here are my results from using pipe cleaners, Spoolies (hair spools) and the Wrap-A-Loc tool. I only use black in case of pipe cleaner shedding. Of course, to avoid shedding issues and snagging from the inexpensive pipe cleaner, I do recommend UPGRADING to the Wrap-A-Loc Tool. (Times got a lil' tight in MY household financially so I haven't yet purchased the longer Wrap-A-Loc Tool that WOULD accommodate my new hair length. Ya gotta do what you gotta do to get stuff done, ya know...) Click play button to see more pics.Nowadays, I only use my Spoolies and Wrap-A-Loc tools for a single strand of loc that I may have missed; but only because the amount of hair these particular size tools hold have become limited since I have more length AND thickness per loc.
I just let these curls hang all day. I never broke him up at all. I really liked the look!
