I hate depending on people. A lot. The concept of being unable to achieve what I want to do and having to rely on others sucks. But this week, I’ve had to acknowledge and get over this because, at one time or another, everyone has had to depend on someone else. Whether it’s for a ride somewhere or to borrow someone’s class notes, asking and needing help won’t kill anyone. Sometimes swallowing your pride is the hardest part!
Summer is over, but you couldn’t tell with how hot it’s been down here in Miami. Thank goodness I’ve been rocking box braids for the last 3 weeks or so, because I wouldn’t be able to handle the heat otherwise. I love wearing my hair up in a bun a la Solange Knowles because not only is it super chic, it keeps my hair off my neck and keeps me from going insane! Honestly, you can wear box braids all year long because it’s a great protective style. Check out some celeb box braids hair inspo below!
I’ve been actively working on writing more so when I had the opportunity to write a few articles for Loop21, I decided to take it. I wrote a three part series on Halloween and the stories discuss everything from getting outfit inspiration from Hollywood to offensive costumes. Check them out here: 7 Celebrities, 7 Costume Themes , The 8 Most Terrifying Attractions in America, “We’re a Culture, Not a Costume” Movement.
I’m officially back in Miami (if you couldn’t tell from our #SBOC2013 recap)! New York was amazing and I know that I will eventually end up there one day — hopefully sooner than later! But for now, I’m just going to enjoy the sunny Miami skies and laidback living. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of this year!
