Hair Idol: Sasheer Zamata

Sasheer Zamata is an America comedian and actress best known for being one of the few Black female cast members on Saturday Night Live. And by “few” I mean that prior to her joining mid-season in 2014, SNL only had FIVE Black female cast members in it’s entire history. And the most recent was Maya Rudolph, who left in 2007.

First week of spring is officially OVER! Which means I’ve finally finished moving all of my heavy winter jackets to the back of my closet (they’re not heading to their storage bins yet, just in case winter wants to come back with a vengeance) and I’m slowly pulling out my shorts, tank tops, and dresses. I’m not a fan of summer (I don’t do heat or humidity) so this is my last chance at happiness before I turn into a puddle a la the Wicked Witch of the East.

Welcome back to the (not quite) monthly series Quick Bites! A series all about short, sweet, to the point reviews. This batch is all about products I don’t like. It was surprisingly hard to put this together because I wanted to focus on products I still owned. Usually when I don’t like something, even if I dislike it just a little I return it. Immediately. Because why keep something I don’t absolutely love? But if I think I can make it work with a few basic tweaks, I’ll hang onto it. Until I accept that I can’t make it work and/or I am no longer am able to return it for whatever reason.

MB and I are planning a trip in April so everything on my mind has been about adventuring and prepping for it. This is a “small trip” for us, since we’ve got BIG plans in the works (like lounging on a beach Bali, castles in Scotland, and sailing in Antarctica! What can I say, we dream big) but that doesn’t change the fact I’m SO EXCITED! It feels like forever since I’ve been traveling.
