Walk to Save Lives

“Every year suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined, and yet suicide prevention doesn’t get anywhere near the funding given to other leading causes of death.

I started beauty blogging specifically because I couldn’t completely relate to any of the bloggers I came across at the beginning of my natural hair journey. Even though I was searching for hair tips like most when following a blog it is the chemistry or connection you feel to the blogger that keeps you coming back to their videos or post. I enjoyed and still do, watching SunKissAlba. She is … Continue reading Too Black to be Spanish Too Spanish to be black
