Hello, Weekend!

Hey guys! So have we all gotten used to this crazy weather? Raise your rain soaked hands if you were caught in puddles and downpour this week. The caveat of course is that it’s Friday, and this weekend, apart from mentally decompressing and catching up on errands, I am beyond excited (and anxious) to be taking a dance class at the Alvin Ailey Dance School! A friend and I will be  taking a Horton class, which if you take a brief glance at the vid and pics, you know your body is in for something special. Can’t wait. A few links for you before I go…!!

      oh, I haven’t! But I did read an interview where she goes into depth about the whole natural hair evolution. I’ll try to find and post a link, it was so nice to hear her relate/talk about it all. No doubt she’s read a few blogs here and there, lol
