Put Your Fearless Face On

So, you know how when you get glamed up you FEEL stunning? Well, the same thing goes with fealing fearless! A big part of my holiday series which you can read more about here, is about embracing our fears. Not just on your natural hair journey but in other areas of your life as well. I don’t want us to just carry the desire to be fearless, but rather to actually take action towards relinquishing our fears and going for it! The new year is fast approaching and there is no time like the present to confront your fears, whatever they may be, and do something about them. 

So, to give you all a some encouragement and Christian inspiration, put your fearless faces on and check out this great Curly Christians read on letting your faith be bigger than your fears here.

Repping Fro Friday in the “A”!!

Hello loves!

Well, my family and I have officially moved to Atlanta! I’m so excited about this next chapter of our lives. God has been at the forefront of this move and we will continue to look to Him for guidance.

I was off from work all week to get us all settled in. Things have been great so far. I love our new apartment despite how much smaller it is from our house in FL. It’s perfect…for now.

I had the pleasure of running into natural hair icon and inspiration Natural Chica aka Nikki Mae in the grocery store. I spotted here mega fro a mile away. Kinda made my week!

And now in honor of Fro Friday I’m still rocking my fro in the “A”!!! Here are some pics.

Instagram Identity CHRISTless

I think we can all agree that there’s no shortage of beautiful people on Instagram. Whether their interest is in fashion, fitness, beauty, art or maybe a funky eclectic look at life in general, you can’t deny them. They are there, the beauties of the world. A challenge comes however, when you fail to recognize yourself as one of those beautiful people. When you are fooled into believing that the body, head of hair or face that you are envying is perfect. When you discount yourself, your beauty, your physical attributes or even your hustle! When you let the fact that you are a complete bad ass grinding every day fall by the waste side because you’ve determined that based on some random photo uploaded to an application called Instagram, you aren’t good enough. This, my friends is a direct byproduct of not knowing who you are in Christ.

As an extremely visual person I happen to really enjoy Instagram. I seriously believe the application was made for people like me. From a health, beauty, hair and makeup perspective its focus on imagery and photography inspires me every day. Whether the photos have been extraordinarily altered or not this app never fails to give me ideas that get my creative juices flowing. Much like most other Medias however, there’s another side of Instagram that seems to be challenging the self-esteem and self-worth of many individuals around the world. The answer to this identity struggle, this lack of confidence, is to build a relationship with Christ.

Once you get to know Him, how absolutely beautiful He formed you and how beautiful you still are despite what you’ve been through, then you can begin to appreciate His other creations without feeling inferior. When you grow to understand that you were fearfully and wonderfully made and discover who God has called you to be, no one can make you feel anything less than what you are, royalty.

My tresses are my crown

Its not perfectly coiled nor does it have the perfect pattern

It’s kinky yet and still somehow reminds me of cotton

I doubt that any company would chose my imperfect curls to represent their brand

But, all of that is ok with me, because my head of natural hair was perfectly formed by a king!

I love every kink, curl and coil so much despite who puts it down.

I’m a child of the most high God and my tresses are my crown!

The Monday Motto

While the rest of the world seems to be hating on Mondays, here I am taking them on by force!

Monday’s tend to set the tempo for the rest of the week for me. So rather than fight them, I’ve decided to embrace them. This requires three simple things:

1. A positive attitude: this one is fairly easy. I just wake up thankful. Thankful for my family, for life, health and purpose

2. A mean face beat: I always try to make sure my makeup is on point on Mondays. It encourages me throughout the day.

3. DRESS!: My Monday outfits should epitomize the Monday Motto, POW!

Mondays are the beginning of the week. They give me another opportunity to chase my goals and my purpose. Assuring I’ve got these three things handled helps me get out the block strong and on fire like a bullet. POW!!

Happy Monday Beauties!
