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!

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.

Better days

better days

The last few days have been nothing short of a magnificent blur. So I started my new internship with Caren West PR on Wednesday and boy, they did not hesitate to get us to work. And I love it. So far, the experience has been more than I could have imagined. There are four total Publicity Assistants and we’re all surprisingly Taurses (as is our boss, Caren West).

I’ll write more about what I’m learning along the way but I just wanted to drop in with a weekend note. I also wanted to apologize in advance for any sporadic posts to come. Still getting a hang of this new schedule.

If you’re in Atlanta and looking for something to do, Atlanta Streets Alive is this Sunday. I’ll be volunteering with MODA. Come see me.

Eat, drink and be merry.

Lucy’s Travels: New York City

Whether you take a trip to a neighboring city or abroad, travelling broadens so much of your perspective on life. Travelling exposes you to cultures that you couldn’t possibly experience by simply watching television. Not to say that you can’t learn about cultures right in your own backyard but it is a magnificent experience once you venture out.

I’ve always found aspects of myself in others while travelling. Like attracts like, right? Connecting, listening to stories and observing have always made me feel alive. On this trip to New York, I was able to run into quite a few amazing individuals who made my trip worthwhile. Thank you Channing, Daphne, Cindy, Taniel, Irveline, Christiana, Derrel, Krystal, Cynthia, Monisha, Aisha and Ulysses for showing me a good time.

3 things my god-daughter taught me

ava

I spent my Saturday with my delightful god-daughter. Those of us without children know how every opportunity to spend time with someone else’s child is either practice or prevention. Luckily, my little princess is not that bad, lol. She’s actually very intelligent. Little did I know, I would leave her a little wiser.
