Last night The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finale was on. It was Pandora's wedding... daughter of Lisa VanderPump. I guess watching the planning and prep for this wedding had my expectations too high. Don't get me wrong, it was beautiful and elegant as we would expect from Lisa, but the show really didn't satisfy my craving for what they had been teasing me with. My disappointment continued with the women getting together at Kyle Richards home to end the season. I expected more conversation with Taylor Armstrong since she had been laying low since the tragedy of Russell. Kyle's house would have been the suitable place for her to bring her therapist and have a sit down with the ladies versus the grand opening of Sur. Also, more of Adrienne Maloof's shoe line would have been nice to see since she packed a few for the evening, and where was Brandi Glanville?  Let's just say that the finale didn't leave me wanting more, but I'm still a huge fan of these women. I find them to be a group of friends that speak the truth, empower and support each other... hope they're planning for a next season!

When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.

Have An Open Heart

As I was sorting through pictures this morning I came across pictures of my seven-year-old granddaughter with girls that she met for the first time on a 2 day stay in Prescott. I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…


Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…
