Goals for Year 4 →
Before I tell you all my new hair resolutions, let’s take a look at last year’s to see how well I did: Bra strap length! Close but not quite. Stop the color addiction by keeping ONE hair color for at least 6 months. (which will be black since I’ve already had about 3 months) That color was black and I’m pretty much back to my natural dark brown :) Find a way to manage...

obsessionfull: Textbooks are fucking expensive, and if your professor doesn’t require a physical copy (most don’t - they just want you to have the book at hand. Or maybe even not. Some professors literally give no fucks about whether you have the book or not) and you don’t mind having your…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! →
Tomorrow is Alice in Nappyland’s (and my hair’s) THIRD birthday! Yay! That’s right people, I’ve been natural for three years and a lot has changed/happened in that time. I’ve officially mastered protective styling (well, as mastered as that’s going to get), colored my hair almost every color of the rainbow and started getting more adventurous with more...

Yasmin Warsame is a Somali born, Canada based model. Unlike most models, she started her career fairly late in the game, in her 20s (-gasp- so OLD *side eye*). On top of being a gorgeous model, she was also an activist for the Somali Youth Coalition in Canada. read more
Everyday Minerals Bases-Truffle and Bronzed Tan →
I hate wearing foundation. I never wore it with the exception of a stint in high school and after that I swore to never wear anything like it again—it was too heavy, rubbed off on everything I touched and would streak if I got remotely sweaty. My friend suggested mineral makeup as a possible substitution and I bought Bare Minerals, at the time the only people making mineral make up. And...

Hair Idol: Herieth Paul →
I’ve already posted about Herieth Paul but I never posted about her and her short hair! So, quick recap, Tanzanian model that looks suspiciously like Naomi Campbell. You’ll probably see a lot of TWA hair idols in the coming weeks because I really miss having short hair. read more
Cat Eyes and Spoons →
I can do serious fantasy make up. Over the top, drag-esque, theater make up is a piece of cake. But I can’t do a simple 50s cat eye for every day wear. Even though it’s my favorite form of eyeliner, I’ve never been able to get the line straight and balanced with a cute little triangle at the end. Until I discovered this video by sasakiasahi, a fabulous Japanese youtuber. read...
