Hair Idol: Karol Conka

Brazilian rapper Karol Conka jumped on my radar when I saw her pastel pink TWA. I love pink hair, but I especially love pastel pink hair on brown girls. I've been thinking of big chopping again and dying my hair pastel pink!

Weekend Update

Alright, we're running close(r) to normal now. I managed to get access to all my photos and about 90% of my drafts! Woo hoo! There is one giant exception though--my photo editing software is not compatible with my new computer. So...Yeah, still working on that. Baby steps folks. Baby steps.

Love it/Leave it: Marsala

Pantone's Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala, an "earthy deep wine" color. I've already touched on why Pantone's color of the year is important in terms of trend setting so I'm going to get right to the point of this post--I'm not really feeling it. I get why they would choose it (the 90s have been coming back with a vengeance) but the color is just "meh."

Hair Idol: Ava DuVernay

You've probably heard about (or seen) the trailer for the movie Selma, a film about the 1965 Selma  voting rights marches. It's gotten rave reviews from critics (nominated for a Spirit Award, Satellite Award, and 100% on Rotten Tomatoes (as of December 7)). And if you have, congratulations you already know the work of Ava DuVernay.

Brief Intermission

My dearly beloved laptop, after many, many, many years of service, passed away this weekend.

And it took all my photos, draft posts, calender, etc. with it.

I've spent the last two days trying to recover as much as possible, but I'm not sure how much I'm going to get back because my backups seem to be corrupted.

Please sit tight. Hopefully we'll be back to our regularly scheduled program soon!
