Today I never felt so Fabulous and Looked so good! (LOL). I want to thank the Lord for another year of wisdom, success, peace, happiness and love. Happy 31st Birthday to ME! I hope you enjoy my birthday outfit.
Remember that curvaceous and plus size women are dime pieces who are top of the line and nothing less, always, 2 SNAPS TO THAT!

Featured Fridays is a way that I can showcase fashionable local businesses that cater to curvy and plus size women, trends, fashion, natural hair or something I simply love. Today I have decided to feature my friend Talilah, but known too many as Naturally Queen. Naturally Queen has been doing hair for 20 years and has been natural for 13 years. Recently she decided to follow her passion of natural hair, make-up and jewelry by taking it on as a full time job. Naturally Queen works in partnership with Mahogany Roots all natural hair and skin care center. Her primary focus is to Educate, Empower, and Transform the lives of women and girls.
After attending one of Naturally Queen’s natural hair workshops it really made me think of how I spend a lot of my nights braiding my hair, so in the morning the definition of the crinkle is almost perfect. When Naturally Queen braided my hair I didn’t like it, I was use to the freedom of my wild looking hair. I’ve always had natural hair and never a perm before. When I saw the braided style the first thought was “I love my big hair, how it flows and moves”, but I grew to look beyond my hair and truly look at me. Who am I? I guess India Arie told us a long time ago “we are not our hair”, we sure aren’t. That day I fell back in love with the natural me, the natural beauty, the beautiful natural hair that I have, thank you Naturally Queen. Naturally Queen is not just a amazing hair stylist, she is a natural hair educator which I love most about her. I enjoy her beautiful spirit and fabulous talents of handmade jewelry and stylish outfits to name a few.
I leave you with something that empowered, educated, and transformed my life through the braids of my natural hair. Naturally Queen told me that “hair is a journey; it’s not about the destination, loving yourself inside and out is the ultimate goal”.
