I must say that I am loving the celebration of all things both beautiful and black. I love that Keri Hilson’s new video is paying tribute to Josephine Baker, Dorothy Dandridge and others. I found this video online today and had to share it with everyone.

Personally, I found myself singing along and trying to learn the “pretty girl rock”. But some critics say that it toes that border between confidence and cockiness. What do you think?


So…it’s been a minute since I’ve featured an entrepreneur of the week. After some searching, I found one. This entrepreneur features hair accessories for women with natural hair. Her products include twists, hair ties, earrings, jewelry, bows, hairbands, bracelets, hair sticks, and hair clips. I really love her stuff because she has something for everyone. Here is one of her pieces, called Thing Four. It costs $18, and right now, she’s offering free shipping on orders of $20 or more.

Who is your hair inspiration? I did not know until I watched Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion. In that movie, I saw one of the most beautiful African American actresses with absolutely gorgeous tresses. Her name is Lisa Arrindell Anderson, and she has been in a number of Tyler Perry movies, plays, and tv shows. In Madea’s Family Reunion, she played Vanessa (the sister with two children who ends up falling in love with Boris Kodjoe).

However, her body of work encompasses more than just Tyler Perry movies. It includes Clockers, Having Our Say: The Delany Sister’s First 100 Years, and A Lesson Before Dying, among others. Whether it be two strand twists, elegant updos, or twist-outs, her hair is always fierce. What I wouldn’t pay to know her hair and body routine.
