Hey hey hey!
The title of this is Roots. Deep roots. Roots of culture. Roots of life. My roots.

I recently dropped a couple of self portraits on Instagram that were more out of the box than my usual images. I had a creative burst and not only did it shock me but it also renewed my artistic spirit.



I wish I could tell you all a deep story behind these images but it was honestly a spur of the moment kind of thing. I walked out of the house makeup less with fresh Bantu knots and something stirred in my heart (Okay maybe it’s a little deep)



I felt free. It felt as if I could walk out of the house and attract everything and everyone in that super simple state I was in. The sun was shining bright. Brighter than usual and I felt as if I had not felt that sun in a while. It hit me and I looked at my reflection in the window and saw chocolate. I smiled. It felt really good.


I am evolving.
& I love it.

Have a happy holiday you gorgeous beings! Thank you for inspiring me on a daily basis.

I would also like to thank this comb. For making my first Bantu knot experience very pleasant.
