Its been a long time!

I have soooo much to discuss- truely I have been thinking of blogging- and its not to do with time- My onsugar account is simply not working! cannot upload photos! I have to copy and paste.... it all just gets a little LOOOOOONG. Anywho- it does mean that I have had plenty of time to catch up on stuff I need to and also form opinions on MANY things, oh and of course there is my hair!! I am still loving it- but it is about to go into kinky twists again with the London winter approaching and all.

I have been swotting up on how best to look after my hair - all major bloggers have their winter regemins up now- great, am about to steal some of those ideas. I am still a MASSIVE PJ!! The truth is there are more and more products available now- with many UK ladies now doing their own lines as a result of lack of US products and if they do get here- the amount we have to pay for them. this is wonderful. Its always good to help a sista out- Love that feeling, but also its great to have so much choice.

I am currently experimentinf with some new products I acquired at the Naturally Fabulous meet up which was AMAZING.I am aiming to get some hair pics up soon- as I still do have hair!! but onsugar is still not working (ugrrrrrrhh!!) In the meantime, ever proavtive, I am building up my Blogger account. My aim is to be able to transfer this blog rather than start again... so we will see what happens.

How have you all been ? I miss you guys!!

The rain

Having grown up in London, I actually feel uncomfortable if it does not rain at least once a week (lol-this is sad, but true). I am no artist, but I do appreciate a good pic. I really like rain shots, there is just something 'homely' about them. I also love New York. My maternal grandmother (colloquially known as 'short stuff' as she is not even 5 foot!) I love that crazy woman soooo much. She has just left the UK after comming over for my cousins wedding. This pic brought a tear to my eye. I miss her. Creator willing, I will see her next year. We (my brother and I) spent many a summer in NY, Far Rockaway to be precise.

*Anyhoo, here are a few rain pics I love to look at. I hope you enjoy them too.

Good old London Town!!

Any Random things you like?

SMH..Black girl problems

I got these off a tumblr site called www.Black-girl-problems.tumblr.com. There are loads of these, but these are the ones that 'floated my boat' today.

So I don't often go on London Transport. There are a million reasons why, price, buses and especially the tubes are absolutley disgustingly filthy, I always seem to get on the bus with the crazy people. Seriously, I dont care how far it is, I would rather pay the extortionate rate for petrol and drive in the comfort of my own car. Anyhoo, my cousin and I took our kids to the Museum of Childhood in good ole Bethnal Green on the weekend. All was good gettin on and off the tube and gettin the bus until crazy, weave (blue weave!! yes blue) got on the bus screaming on her i phone about what she was gonna do to her baby fader!! I sooo didnt care- but automatically fely embarresed. I dont even know the silly cow. But what I do now is the other people on the bus- none of whom were Black- will tar the both of us with the same brush. There I was on the bus with two of my kids, minding my business, and I just wanted to get up and shake her. I wanted to tell her to wear clothes that are designed for her size, and to be descreet. Smh- I can feel my blood pressure rising as I type. I am not gonna say any more about this. Except...some of us need to FIXX UPP!!

Now, I didnt know whether to laugh or cry at this one. This, unfortunately is true. When you go into a salon, I am talking here in NW (London) all they wanna do is relax or straighten your hair. Whats up with that? I thought we were starting a revolution here? we need some stylists ASAP. They automatically think you must want to start locs- apparently they can do that also!! and charge you the earth for the pleasure. No thanks......back to Youtube for inspiration for me.

Do you have any problems?!?

Adele

I love the way she is not willing to conform to the barbie doll stereotype. How refreshing? I am truely sick to death of these wafer thin celebs who can barely hold a note.(is it obvious I am not a pop music fan!) Good for Adele-letting her music be her guide.It is my understanding that there was a substantial amount of pressure put on her to lose weight, even suggesting her music would not sell because of her size. I am glad she stuck to her principles. Lets hope others with GENUINE talent will make it through, regardless of size or looks.

Sometimes its better to go back to what you know.....

Hey peeps,

So I have been experimenting with many different products as the grass is always greener..... but I find myself again and again, coming back to what I know. I bought some stuff from Curl Harmony- and of course my hair is the best it has looked in ages.

Sometimes its good to go back to basics. The only 'new' product of note that I HAVE to have in my life is the TRessemme Naturals conditioner.

This stuff is the truth! its cheap and cheerful-great ingredients and it gets the job done. I am all about simplicity these days. NO time for messing around- too many children and too little time for that! the CH stuff is where I started- and I have come back home.

What are your 'home' products?

Londons burnin........smh

Riots And Looting Continues Across London

This is so sad. I am born and bred in London, and up until tonight, I dont think I have had any real affinity to it-but it is hurting my soul to see what is happening. It appears that almost every part of the capital has been affected by this. It is clearly NOT about Mr Duggan- who by all accounts was murdered in cold blood by the met police (allegedly). I have had various conversations with my fam, young ones and old and have had several explanations for whats going on.

On the one hand, these young people have been bullied by the police and the Duggan situation is the preverbial straw that broke the camels back.These are the frustrated youth of these times-dont we get this in every generation? The coalition government has recently cut millions from budgets and youth services were hit badly as it is seen as a non-essential service. So they are bored and dissolutioned.

The flipside of this (my opinion) is that many of these little brutes can not even spell frustrated let alone feel it. Frustration does not make you break into shops and loot goods-or set peoples homes on fire. Frustration does not make you destroy buildings that have survived the Blitz. These kids have no respect for anything, and certainly not for the police.

Riots And Looting Continues Across London

I have no doubt that Cammo-who has finally decided to return from Tuscany (at least he can afford a family holiday-due to many of his draconian policies, many others cannot- may be part of the problem) will be very bullish tomorrow when he finally makes a statement. But when he gets back to his plush unsoiled flat at Downing Street, that he thinks about why these youths feel the need to destroy and steal from their own communities. I hope he now recognises that his idea of the 'big society' is bull, and nobody except him thinks it makes any sense.

The people are talking. I hear there is trouble in Birmingham and Liverpool. This is not about colour. In my opinion it is about the 'haves' and the 'have nots'. One community leader today commented that she witnessed an equal number of girls and boys black and white amongst those who were rioting and looting. They appear to have joined together to fight a common enemy.........the police/the system.

I hope they are ready.

It appears the revolution IS being televised......

Quick update

Hey peeps,

I sit here getting ready for bed, I send this post from my brand spangling new Blackberry Playbook, bought for me by my DH as he has finally got tired of me whinging about my dell. Anyhoo, the twists are out and I have been watching a few youtube vids to get some inspiration. Here are a few pics of todays hair. I am trying not to resort to my puff, which is growing wilder. I am trying to experiment a little. -but not too much as you can see! lol

Now I am looking back at the pics it doesnt look that exciting-but it is at the very least a change for me.

National Afro day today-Fros on the 4th...

Even tho the 4th of July has NO significance for us over here- its cool to support our sisters over the pond. I suppose it may be a little easier over there as its a national holiday. How many would wear A full on Afro to work I wonder.....

Enjoy your day

Get a load of this!!

There is some stuff that never ceases to amaze me. Look at the liberty below!! Basically this old man left his millions to his 'manservant' who apparently has slept at the foot of his bed for the last 30 years. (I just wanna punch something when I hear that!) His family are not at all impressed- as he left every penny and the estate to thisd dude. NOTHING for his wife of 55 years or even his grandchild. The wife has told this 'manservant' who's name is Kent Adonai to 'do the decent thing' AND HAND THE MONEY BACK!!!

Please read the story.

 
King of the island: Lord Glenconner at his Mustique home in 1985

 

Kent Adonai, who worked for Glenconner for years, and who was his driver and companion, has inherited his master’s entire estate in the West Indies,  including his beachside house between the Pitons in St Lucia, all its contents and a valley overlooking the Caribbean that is worth millions

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2004471/Lord-Glenconners-fortune-left-servant.html#ixzz1QgIUg83W


Loyal: Kent Adonai cared for Lord Glenconner at his adopted home of St Lucia

 

All I can say is I hope Kent keeps this ish- and tells the fam to PISSSSSSSS ARRRF. Sleeping at the foot of his bed indeed......... Slavery is over peeps.

National Afro day

Hey peep's.

Our American sisters are celebrating national fro' day on July 4th (Monday) I think we should all support where we can. My hair is currently in kinky twists- but I would be all over it otherwise.  I start work after maternity leave on that day- it would be perfect for me to turn up with a massive fro to boot! Oh well- next year........

Would Like to see: Desert Flower

I remember being so upset reading this book. It is the life story of Waris Dirie, who overcame so much in her life. She is played by her real life good friend Liya Kebede. I hope this gets some type of release over here.

 

What do you think?
