Heat Free Hair Atlanta

{Ngozi, Alex, Lucy, Asiyami}

Last Sunday, I attended the Heat Free Hair brunch, hosted by the lovely Alex Elle. If you’re unfamiliar with this charming young lady, then you really need to update your social media pages. She has wooed us with her words as a writer and gained our respect for always being so transparent and positive. Alex Elle is the epitome of grace .

Back to Heat Free Hair. Now, I absolutely hate doing my hair. I’m also not a huge fan of weaves because I don’t think I look like myself in them. I love my kinky-coily hair but if it could be bigger, I’d just die. So when I found out about a company that allows beautiful natural girls to wear natural extensions, I was intrigued. I mean, look at the versatility of this hair!

Nature Feels

Last week, I was in the photo-taking mood so I convinced my photographer friend into capturing me in this abandoned area of Atlanta. I have a thing for blank spaces; leaving the subject to create their own art. Sidebar: the place I was imagining was not the place that I ended at, unfortunately. But it was still a beautiful desolate location. Abandoned railroad tracks down a mysterious path…I’m pretty sure that route was a popular one for slaves. I gotta do more research. Lol.

Everything didn’t go as planned and we got eaten alive by mosquitos but it was fun creating this.

“Prayers are prophesies. They are the best predictors of your spiritual future. Who you become is determined by how you pray. Ultimately, the transcript of your prayers becomes the script of your life.” The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson

In 2005, I was 20 years old. I moved off campus and into my own apartment – all 602 square feet of it. I had no living room set, no cable, but it was my cozy home. As the frigid months approached, I realized that I was in way over my head. At the time, I was working part-time at a daycare making $7.25 an hour. I was a full-time college student. I had $1000 a month in bills to pay. I fell into a deep depression that year. Routinely, I would have a pastor friend of mine wake up at 6am and pray for me before I went in to work. Looking back, I know that it was only God that got me through that year.

Love You Love People

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to do a mini shoot with the wonderful gals at So Worth Loving. I simply love this brand because their messages of self empowerment and worth is such a relatable subject for our generation. Encouraging people to share their stories and not to be ashamed of who they are is significant. This brand is founded on transparency and you all KNOW how much I love that.

When I finally got a chance to meet Eryn a few months ago in person, I let her know I was willing to support in any way possible. So when she reached out to me about this, I was ecstatic! I love love love being a part of powerful movements. I love supporting people doing meaningful things. And y’all know how much I want to be a model. Listen, speak those things, lol.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

My bestie was in town last week and we both experienced something new: baseball. After many years of living in Atlanta, neither of us had ever attended a Braves game. So when the opportunity presented itself, we surely took up the offer.

Where in the World is LucyPearl… Diego?

I was trying to make that rhyme. Humor me, please. Anyway, as you can see, my last post was three weeks ago. The powers that be might as well confiscate my domain name. It’s been some years since I’ve taken this long to post. Forgive me. Now allow me to be a bit self-absorbed for a moment in order to update you all on my life.
