Man Crush Monday

If there’s one thing I can celebrate every Monday, is that gorgeous men walk among us. And one day every week, thanks to social media, we get a free pass to objectify you and not feel creepy. So anyway this week’s gorgeous numero 1 is courtesy of Vinnieh who showed me his post which was full of yumminess, so thank you. And did one especially for me, make sure to check it out, so that I can gloat some more.

So no.1 David Gandy. I simply have no words since I’ve been obsessing over it for a week.

No.2 William Levy. Am not saying his number two but I was inspired to put him on this list by David. They just seemed similar to me. I know his married and has kid or kids but in Swahili we have a saying, “macho hayana pazia”. Which loosely translated means eyes don’t have obstacles in the way. And his hot so congrats to the wife!

Just a by the way, did you know William Levy will be in the next Resident Evil? Ahhhhh Fan girling!!! Really we need to send gift baskets to their parents for their awesome genes.

Plus, because I do not like to forget the local boys, this is a shout out to the man I saw on the bus, guy in the black suit with those really manly glasses, you were perfect eye candy for Monday morning.

Mordern Man Woes..

Okay I feel like I’ve been ignoring the men even though I am a great campaigner for your rights. Well, today I stand with you again.

You have been oppressed and denied the one thing that was a great source of distraction in your everyday lives. When you could turn your head at the sound of that click, click, click on the halls, and just know the view on the way will be awesome. If you still don’t have a clue what am talking about, am talking about women in heels.

For shame women! You have adopted to wearing flats, sneakers and sandals to work. Where did the heels go? The office was one of the only places it was assured women will be in heels. Flat shoes though comfortable don’t give that curvature that heels will give.

Okay so am not in the heel wearing club, I like my bones where they are. But really we should try going back to traditional footwear for the office. For the men… 😛

Freakum Dress…

165194N01S001_bthumb

I didn’t know this was a thing, but according to Beyonce’s song, “Freakum Dress” all us women have one. You know that dress that is an invitation to get freaky to your man. Well, do you have one? I don’t think I do since if I was allowed I would live in a t-shirt and sweat pants. Jeez, am a couch-potato away from her couch…

Men, is this dress real?

Relationship Chronicles: The Booty…

Okay I remember a time when we women used to ask a very tough question to men.  Men you know what am talking about. That dreaded question where one answer could either leave you an eunuch at the end of the night or really really happy. Okay I’ll tell you,”Does my ass look big in this dress?” Yes, I just saw the chills run down your spine.

Now times are changing, the bigger the booty the happier your woman is. It’s becoming the norm to get a little extra in the trunk with butt implants and injections or pills and potions. So the question really hasn’t changed and the answer is still a dangerous pitfall for men everywhere. But now as a man, you can tell you better half her ass is huge and she will love you not hit you.

If I just got you maimed or killed, am sorry don’t haunt me cause my body guard ghost, Troy the pit bull, will kick your ass.

What is Office wear?

susie-styles_what-not-to-wear-to-a-christmas-work-party_edith-head-quoteSo today me and a couple others at the office got a good talking to about our dressing. Am a hippie, emo with a lot of old world thrown in type of person . What this means is that am addicted to florals and extremely bright colors with a little black here and there. So really what is office wear?

Apparently, according to my bosses color and patterns are not corporate enough. I should wear blacks, greys and blues and generally unhappy colors and prints to be dressed up enough to pass inspection.

How is color and print a bad thing? I work as a marketing specialist, you would think being bright was a good thing, right?

So people anyone want to give me advice on how to be dull and grey?

Hair matters…

So at the beginning of last year I shaved my head. (Ahhhh so scary). If you were with me then you know all the gory details. If you weren’t, then let me cry on your shoulder a bit, I GOT A BAD DYE JOB AND MY HAIR FELL OFF. For more details, before I start wailing, check it out here  bad dye jobs and hair growth remedies .

Anyway, so I was going to do a progress report with pictures, but since am at work and taking selfies on company time is seriously frowned upon, it won’t have pictures. I will update them soon though.

So down to business, I shaved off about 80% of my hair in February, I had an almost shoulder length bob then. Progress after almost a year; My hair is longer that it was before. I gained back all the length and a little more. Its now up to shoulder length. Am rocking that Afro like nobodies business. 😛

Things I’ve realized through out my journey…

  • My hair was so badly damaged before and I didn’t even know it. I have been relaxing my hair since I was in class 2 which I think is the equivalent of 2nd grade.The effects of it had left my hair thin and weak, which made it easy to break off. Hence I was having minimal growth retention and scalp problems all the time. Now, my hair has life so to speak. It rarely falls off and if you discount last weekend where I got a free conditioner sample and like an idiot tried it. My hair fell off and became brittle but my saving joy, coconut and avocado oil. Its back to almost normal and lets just say even with that experience my hair has never felt this great. Moral; don’t use free samples!
  • Mini braids work best (for me) as a protective style. Everyone I talked to emphasized doing protective styling to help maintain your hair. Its good to find what works for you and not try everything out there. Why it works for me? I don’t have to keep disturbing my hair with new styles everyday. It’s easy to manage. Easy access when washing and applying oils and creams.  I ensure the products I use reach every strand and my scalp. Moral; Find what works for you.
  • Lastly, don’t expect results overnight. Don’t get drawn in by catchy marketing ad’s and use all products that promise instant growth. Nothing really does. Moral; Don’t believe the hype.

My advice from the lessons I’ve learned.

  • Try simple things, like the LOC method (Liquid – Oil – Cream) which helps keeps your hair moisturized.
  • Find good shampoos and conditioners that don’t leave your hair dry and brittle. That is, stay away from products with sulfates and paraben.
  • Always detangle your hair while wet. It eases the process and offers less breakage.
  • Protective styling is a must, especially if your hair is natural. It lessens the amount of stress to your hair which in turn helps you retain length.

That’s pretty much it for this very long post. The longest I’ve done so far I think. Making this a new milestone as well the celebration of my hair growth 😀

Have a good Friday people. Also comment and give insights on your hair journey and experiences I would love to hear from you.

Perfect eyebrows… An impossible task.

I am not vain but I have eye brow issues. You know how in magazines, movies  and every other professional photo you always see these women with perfect eyebrows, where both eyebrows are similar in size? Apparently I cant have that or at least almost similar sized eyebrows. They always look different no matter if I do them myself or have it done  at the salon. Maybe somethings are just not meant to be.
