Just a young woman, maturing as i move through this thing called life. An old soul born in the wrong era. Always trying to figure out my next step and leaving those behind who don't want success as bad as i do. An avid thinker and extraordinary individual living in an ordinary world. CT is home, but i refuse to grow old here. Black is beautiful <3. When u think you've got me, you've never really gotten me at all....and i'm just scratching the surface.

Fenugreek:

Fenugreek have a wide variety of health benefits for Women. However, there is also one side effect of Fenugreek i.e., taking this herb regularly will result in bigger thighs, hips and buttocks. Luckily, as a lot of Women these days are fond of getting a sexy looking butt, this disadvantage has actually become an advantage. Fenugreek is popularly known for its richness in Phytoestrogens which are responsible for regulating the hormonal production. It contains diosgenin which is a major component that boosts estrogen levels in our body, resulting in a bigger and rounder buttocks.

“How Should You Use Maca Root for Your Curves and Bigger Butt?

If you are seriously thinking about using Maka root for you “curves”, then you might need some advice:

Make sure that you have bought a good quality gelatinized maca root powder that does not contain any additions. I suggest taking gelatinized maca rather that raw maca, because it is precooked and it’s is much better for you digestion and your body will accept it much quicker.

You should try to assist maca by adding “butt training” such as bending and lifting legs and squats and walks. You will be able to see the first results within four weeks.

When you’re training, it’s recommended to take not more than 4 teaspoons a day. When you are resting from training, taking one or two tsp of maca is perfectly fine.

Different kinds of maca root have slightly different qualities. If you’d like to build muscles in your buttocks area, you should take black or red maca which showed better results in research.”

***Check with your doctor before trying this routine.

We as Black people have to tell our own stories. We have to document our history. When we allow someone else to document our history the history becomes twisted and we get written out. We get our noses blown off.

I think God sometimes allows us to be ignored by people we care about so we’ll realize that He is the only One Who is here for us at ALL times.

Jamila Lyiscott: 3 ways to speak English

Stop what you’re doing and watch this. Especially if you have a problem with AAVE or broken English. 

This is literally my life. Literally. Jamaican Patois, African American Vernacular English, Standard American English. Exquisite spoken word here. Loved this part: “Let there be no confusion, let there be no hesitation, this is not a promotion of ignorance, this is a linguistic celebration. That’s why…I put trilingual on my last job application. I can help diversify your consumer market is all I wanted them to know. And, when they call me for the interview, I’ll be more than happy to show that I can say ‘what’s good,’ ‘whatta gwan,’ and of course, ‘hello.’”

Looking at your hair my hair texture seems to be very similar to yours especially due to my coloring. I’ve been having a hard time with products lately…Any suggestions?
