When she loved her bare-face beauty
Photo caption: I’ve been sick so I’ve been MIA Instagram. Here is a pic of my puffy face and tired eyes. NYC got the best of me lol but I’m still happy to be here working ? took my weave out and rocking my natural curls. Sometimes you have to just strip down all the extras and take a look at yourself bare and say I AM BEAUTIFUL! I chopped it earlier this year and my natural hair journey has been rough, but I am embracing it and even the shrinkage. I love changing my look every now and again. And turning the big 3–0 (I know I still look 12, I’m aware!) has put me in such a contemplative state when it comes to me loving and learning who I am now. But enough of rambling! Hope you guys had a great week! #notesfrommyjournal
When she gave us full fro.
