hair things.

I decided to change up the 'do again. No surprise there. As I mentioned to a friend who remarked about the merry-go-round of styles we as Black women are happy to explore, hair is one of the few things in this crazy life that I can control. (Although I've long believed that my hair, known [...]

back to black.

After a year of red hair (which was my third time being a slight redhead), I went back to black--jet black--this weekend. She got colored and also received a much-welcomed shape-up/slight haircut. As much as I love making color changes to my hair, here's the main reason why black wins every single time: Had to [...]

Since a deep--and I mean deeeep--conditioning was necessary, I headed to the [...]

Fabu Fashion…Monday.

You'll recall that the Fabu Fashion feature started on a Thursday...then next occurred on a Friday. Ah, well. I run this, right? So, sharing what I wore a few weeks ago to a dance party in Connecticut. Don't want to brag, but This Square Peg was all gussied up and she liked it. What whaaat? [...]
