Stripped

So I got waxed the other day, and as always, the Opera singer in me emerged. I screamed for dear life, because really, honestly speaking, I was hanging on to my dear life. My friend has said numerous times that if I do it consistently and often it’ll get less painful, but at this point …

QUEENDOM

I decided to wash my hair on a whim some days ago. My fellow natural haired sisters can testify that wash day NEEDS to be penned into your schedule.
