We LoVe

Teyanna Taylor

Now you know this and you also know we love her hair.

She switches it up sometimes
and I like this look.

Seriously. Especially the one below. You know how much I love switching up my hair. This might be the next look ... I'm thinking January.

Also check out the dramatic curls at the end w/ Miss Christina Milan.

I love shopping for Spring Dresses

Dress by LaRok

but its winter
so here are some other items of my "not in school at the moment" daydreams

Cauuuute -Forever 21

American Apparel Cotton Spandex Jersey Double U-Neck Long Sleeve Mini Dresses (in Black)

I think ^these^ are really cute - From Forever 21

A lil Betsey...mhhm great to tote around at parties

So a major theme in my spring break dream was me in an orange crop top-- so here goes some variations...

speaking of crop tops, EVERYONE needs a plain white one

and finally a really cute top from my FAVORITE store URBAN OUTFITTERS
i just may have to do a whole post on the store
i adore their cute trinkets

Have you suffered from this? It is unfortunate to say that many of us (people of color- all colors) have dealt with it at some point if not continuously. This examines shadeism in multiple cultures.

Its been a while

Sooooo I haven't updated in a while because life has been crazy. Since my last post I have traveled to Africa again. This time to Nigeria. For my fathers funeral. Yea. Life has been crazy difficult. I actually have taken the semester off to be able to do that traveling and come home to spend time with my mom and pack (we're moving). Yup. In Chicago. It kinda sucks cuz I don't really have friends here, I mean, everyone is in school.

Its taken me a while to stop saying (and believing) that my life sucks. You know, try imagining losing someone you love so much. You can't actually imagine it. But if you can muster a tear multiply that. They say that you eventually won't cry every night - I haven't gotten to that place yet. But at least I've gotten to the point that I can live (a little) and smile.

I absolutely LOVE my friends at school. They have helped me sooo much. I miss them! but I'll see em in January. As for now...

Guess that means its time to make new friends!

2 months in Ghana and not one post
there was honestly too much going on and too slow/limited internet access for me to stop living and blog. Nonetheless I kicked it oldschool and kept a journal. One which I will be happy to share some entries. If Only I can before school starts. I went from Torkor-Kpando, Volta Region, Ghana to Frankfurt, Germany, to Chicago, US to Syracuse to Rochester and now I'm in Philly. My school town. My place of living for most of the year.

Currently at the hotel...

More lata

I'm thinking of changing the look btw.

Thank HIM

I am soooooooooo thankful
there have been a lot of *financial* ups (actually staight line) and downs this year. Specifically this semester and the last 4 weeks. But look at God. He blesses me abundantly. He blesses my life. I hope that everyone was able to celebrate Easter, Ressurection Sunday as I like to say.

I am sooo thankful and excited!!! God has blessed me with an internship in Ghana this summer! This experience is fully funded by my lovely University! Look at God. I will be working at an NGO. In case you didn't know I am an International Relations major so this is basically perfect. Only Jesus is perfect so you should know that it was only HIM.
that is all

Kids in college are some of the dumbest people I know
NEWSFLASH: just because you didn't get pregnant in highschool doesn't make you any better for getting pregnant in college!
Use protection, if I hear one more story about someone relying on the pull out method! Are you trying to get pregnant? Do you want an STD? I thought we were at an ivy league? Smartest dumbasses I kno.

Yes that was a rant
that is all

Crazzzyyyyyy weekend

College is fun.
If anyone has questions about college feel free to ask.
Yes college is lots of intensive work, you're preparing for life! In my experience it's especially intense at a prestigious university. I try not to talk about that on here, considering often enough, all people at elite universities do IS talk about being at an elite university ... smh
but anyhow sometimes, like this weekend, you have a realllly good time and remember that college is fun.

soooo pictures? I think NOT lol
i dont care to be blackmailed later in life when i become a diplomat haha
but i will give you pictures that derived from my boredom

1st Post of the New Year

Realizing that this is a new year, I should probably do some new things. Like change the look of this page.

So I actually do have some goals. But that's what they are goals. Not necessarily plans because God is really in complete control of my life. So here's what I'm working towards in 2010

Paint more
Blog/journal more
Study Abroad
Lose 15 lbs...yea
END Procrastination

so that is all for now
