As women, we all have those days when wearing heels just is not the move, and this day was THAT day! Honestly, I wear sneakers with a midi dress or skirt quite often, particularly when I have a lot of running around to do. These NEW Puma Creepers, by Rihanna, happen to be my comfortable #sotd. Since Rihanna became Puma’s new Creative Director in 2014, I feel like the brand is coming back in a major way. Meek Mill and Solange, have also teamed up with Puma to design their own sneaker. The classic suede material on Pumas make these sneakers so perfect, being that suede is definitely trending this Fall and Winter season.

Taking it back to when I first cut my hair, I remember saying that I would explain the reason why I decided to do the #bigchop in my next post, but I realize that post never came, until now. No! I did not suffer from any serious hair loss. No! I did not have a perm that took all of my hair out. And no! I did not get a bad sew in and all my hair came out with it. Honestly, I cut my hair because I FELT LIKE IT! I have always admired women who can rock short styles, but I NEVER in a million years viewed myself as one of those women. For my entire life, I have been known as the “black girl with the long pretty hair.” So many people say “women with long hair aren’t appreciative of what they have”, or “other people would kill to have your hair and you don’t even want it.” That is definitely not the case! I loved my hair; the length, the fullness, everything, but I was ready for something different. Ultimately, I was ready to step out of my comfort zone. BUT frankly, this tapered natural look was NOT the original plan. I intended to cut my hair into a super short choppy pixie, and still wear it straight. Obviously, it didn’t work out that way. Since I cut my hair this past March it has been straight ONCE, and that was for my birthday.
In a way, I am glad the pixie style did not work out, because this short, natural thing is extremely simple and low maintenance. I literally pick my curls out everyday, smooth in little olive oil, and a touch of edge control , and I am out the door. Black girls know the importance of having fleeky edges, it’s fundamental if you want to be successful in life, lol. All I can say is, for those of you contemplating changing up your look in terms of hair, GO FOR IT! Do not let fear of how you’re going to look, or if the next person will like it, discourage you! WHO CARES! I see this saying on Instagram all the time “Life is too short for boring hair!” and I totally agree. Take a leap of Faith and do whatever makes you happy! You aren’t living to please anyone but yourself. Oh, and side note! I get SOOOOO much more attention with this short, natural cut, than I ever did with my long hair or weave, lol. So LADIES don’t doubt yourself, most men appreciate women who aren’t afraid to step out of the box and rock what is natural!!
