I Want Locs!!!

Yes, it’s true. I want to loc my hair! I have been thinking about it for months and months now, but haven’t officially expressed my feelings about it. But, as the days go by, I constantly check out locs of all shapes, sizes, lengths and colors. I even re-watched videos of myself in twists just to make sure that I was comfortable with the look. I want my locs to be about the size of my pinky finger!

I have had such an awesome time during my natural journey! I haven’t had a relaxer since 2005!!! There are a ton and a half of options for natural hair, and I haven’t done a tenth of them. But I just love, love, love the locked look!!! I must have it!!! I will probably procrastinate and not get them done for a few more months, since I already bought those huge tubs of Miss Jessie’s Baby Buttercream andQhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream. That stuff was NOT cheap, so I will NOT loc until I use them entirely! To be on the safe side, I’ll probably keep my hair twisted more often.

Doesn’t Lauryn Hill look amazing in the picture? Billy B. was the face beater, clearly.

WWD Sneak Peek: The Obama Inauguration

Carolina Herrera

It seems like just yesterday we were lined up at the polls, now we’re booking hotel rooms for the big night!!! WWD.com compiled stunning sketches from top designers to decide what First Lady-Elect Michelle Obama and the fam will wear the night that Barry is sworn in as President! I must admit, I have a special place in my heart for Carolina Herrera‘s elegant designs. I immediately looked for her designs first! Mark my words, I WILL wear one of her designs to some gala or ball one day!!! View the entire slide show with all the sketches here at WWD.com. I wish I could narrow it down to the dress , but I just can’t choose! I’ve highlighted all of my favorites for you.

R.I.P. Todd Homme of “Blush”

Completely shocked. Just finished watching Blush, an awful show turned fantastic, awaiting the winner. (And no, I’m not going to be a spoiler). After they announce the winner, I’m clapping, so happy that the show ended well. And then, they show the RIP Todd Homme…whoa. I was on the phone with my gay boyfriend, Warren, and we immediately gasp, then google like crazy to figure out what happened.

TVGuide has somewhat of an explanation, saying that Todd’s boyfriend found him dead at home. This is so very, very sad. Todd was such an amazing artist, and such a joy to watch. I mean really, didn’t he say the funniest things??? Plus, he was SO cute. One of the last things that he said on the show was that he was 23 and had no regrets, and that’s very settling in many of our hearts. RIP Todd Homme.
