Good Hair by Chris Rock



Kudos for Chris Rock on filming a documentary about "Good Hair" which I suspect is targeted towards and addressing the whole idea and thought process of what is considered "good hair" amongst the African American community. Chris Rock said he got the idea when his daughter came to him crying and asked, “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair?”

"Good Hair visits hair salons and styling battles, scientific laboratories, and Indian temples to explore the way black hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem of black people."

My hair is all natural and curly and it always amazes me when people say you have "good hair" because the first thing I think is try running a comb through this with out some leave-in-conditioner or water or something!

But anyways I can't wait to check the documentary out when it hits theaters! One of the producers for the documentary said that "there needs to be a real discussion among black woman about when their daughters should get a relaxer." I TOTALLY agree, I cannot understand the thought process behind giving a 4 year old a perm!! Little girls need their hair to grow and develop before exposing them to such a potent chemical. And besides when you have a perm you have to know how to treat your hair (being that it is in a weaker state than when natural) and a 4 year old definitely does not know how to take care of permed processed hair!

Fancy





I Love the smell of this perfume!
It's very sweet and warm and its long-lasting. I sprayed some on in the store and hours laters I smelled just as sweet as when I first applied the perfume. It smells like a blend of vanilla, apricot and pear. Check it out!

breakfast at tiffany's




It's amazing how much I can understand Holly in this movie! I think I'm going to have a "breakfast at Tiffany's" weekend and go Window shopping on 5th ave! LOL

For those who never seen this movie, check it out, here is a quick synopsis from rottentomatoes.com:

Synopsis: Blake Edwards's adaptation of Truman Capote's classic novella is ideally cast with Audrey Hepburn in the role of Holly Golightly. The free-spirited gamine darts about New York, feted by wealthy men drawn to her megawatt charm and elegance, hoping that the party will never end. After "shopping" in front of Tiffany's window, she meets aspiring writer Paul Varjak (George Peppard), and they begin a platonic friendship. "Sponsored" by an older woman (Patricia Neal) whose interest in the young man is more than literary, he can identify with her experience better than most, taking it upon himself to protect her from the worst aspects of city life. But she seems to need little protection from such friends as incarcerated mob boss Sally Tomato (Alan Reed), who pays her to carry messages to Sing Sing. With her infectious joi de vivre, she helps Paul break through a paralyzing case of writer's block. But when the genial Doc Golightly (Buddy Ebsen) appears in New York in search of Holly, the sources of her gossamer lifestyle suddenly become clearer. Edwards's lighter-than-air romantic comedy, set in a fantasy New York, rides on the irresistible charm of Hepburn at her peak, as well as a memorable score by Henry Mancini. Although George Axelrod's screenplay is as different from the original story as George Peppard is from the young Capote, the film succeeds on its own terms.
