i have had my hair locked for a very, very long time. august would make it 12 yrs.

and since 2007 i have been slowly chopping it off.

and i think i am *almost*ready to cut it all off.

i luv luv luv my hair locked + i really do luv the way my hair is now but i am ready for a change. it’s just that when you’ve had ur hair a certain way for so long, it kinda is hard to see myself without it. in a way it is a big part of me, especially now, since many people identify me by my hair + associate naKIMuli with “the girl with the funky hairstyle.” it’s gonna be hard to top that. lol but it’s not about topping urself (or is it? hhhmmm…) as it is more about evolving. growing. changing. being comfortable with people seeing u differently. and seeing urself differently.

i do have a couple of fears about cutting it off:

  • going thru that in between phase; u know, u haven’t quite accomplished the look u want so ur hair looks like a hot mess. though i do think i can pull it off. yes, i think i can make "the hot mess look" look pretty darn good. lol or maybe i should invest in some wigs just in case. argh…
  • speaking of wigs, i may seriously have to invest in some. i wanna have straight hair. again. but i don’t know about that getting a perm thang.
  • i need something manageable + low maintenance. never been the girl who makes a big fuss over hair + i really don’t wanna become her either. and i twist my own hair now + uncle jimmy shaves the sides cuz i like my money in my pocket. or at least going to naKIMuli inc. or towards some hot shoes.
  • i don’t wanna look like every other black girl in bk who chops their hair off. u know what i am talking about. no offense to anyone reading this but that cult exists. lmao

they aren’t really "fears" but more of me not really being at the 100% mark of a chopping-of-the-hair-commitment yet. (i did say I was almost ready.) i just haven’t thought it all through.

not sure when the big chop-off will happen. but i am excited to do it. the urge is here. and i know one day, without even thinking about it i’m gonna just say to uncle jimmy cut it all off!”

and i am 99% sure i am gonna loc my hair again in the future. in the distant future.

why do all ur fly shoes hurt?

this weekend i went + tried these shoes on at their soho store. they looked sooooo good on my feet. oh, i can’t even begin to tell u how wonderful they looked! but they hurt like hell! at first i was thinking, maybe it’s me, since i’m flat footed, it makes buying shoes w/high arches a pain. i put my insoles into the shoes + it felt just a little better. and if i am about to put a good amount of money on some shoes, they have to feel better than ok. so i came home + read reviews on these particular boots. not one review was positive! everyone complained about the same thing—they hurt! this the 2nd pair of shoes that i have tried on by irregular choice + they were very uncomfortable. even the saleswomen were trying to get me to try on other pairs that were more comfortable. oh goodness! i had so many plans for u, diamontina boots, but i’m no so sure now…

today is my granma’s birrthday, she turns 82. wow, imagine living for 82 yrs…

here is lady gaga’s new video for “bad romance.” the styling is ridiculous, featuring pieces from the mcqueen s/s 2010 collection (yes, even the shoes).

dare i say…one of the most fascinating artists of my generation…

___________________________________________________________

what sets lady gaga apart from apart from all the rest is vision; having a unique point of view + being confident about u + what u have to say + making it sooo outlandish that people must stop + look. i am not too thrilled about this song but that shit don’t even matter cuz the visual is what’s got me hooked!!! i <3 her so much! an inspiration indeed!
