Is Your ‘Fro SEXY AF?

So I wanted to start re-creating some of my old artwork. I did a "'Fros Are Sexy" back in 2014. I thought it was the bomb dot com back then plus it got alot of shares. Looking at it now I'm like OMG I've come a long way with Illustrator. If you haven't noticed I love vector art and do 99% of my illustrations in Adobe Illustrator CS5. 

'Fros Are Sexy 2014-TawanaSimone

When re-creating this illustration I wanted my character to look sexy and almost uninterested. The curls need not be defined and I'm really into mid rings right now. Guess because its the trend right now even though I do not wear them myself. Anyway...I did want to keep some elements from the original illustration such as the gold jewelry and black dress. At first I had given her a red lip but was like maybe it looks to harsh or intimidating. But really it's not; however these are the thoughts that go through my head in the finalizing stages as I look at the illustration from my computer and phone. Always walk away for a bit before deciding. Then I just decided why not post both. She looks good with a natural lip and a red one. Which do you prefer?

Not all of us have defined curls without product. I love seeing my fellow naturalistas rocking their fluffy twistouts or picked out 'fro. Our hair is beautiful whether defined or not. I have tight corkscrew curls or some may say I'm apart of the 4C hair club. I do love fluffing my hair to its fullest potential. Do you wear your hair in its natural state of an afro? Is your 'fro sexy AF?

I Absolutely Detest Mondays

Well I actually don't dislike Mondays...I mean Tuesdays are the worst. Tuesday doesn't start the beginning week or the middle of the week. Like it's a useless unproductive day. I call Thursdays, "Little Fridays." Nothing happens on Tuesday. We have MCM(Man Crush Monday) and WCW(Woman Crush Wednesday, TBT(Throwback Thursday). No one cares about Tuesday....oh wait nevermind there's TT(Transformation Tuesday). That's still not as good as the other hashtags. But why do people hate Mondays? For most people they consider it the start of a new week, a new routine, a new diet. Learn to love Mondays again♥

Why Won’t My Flexirod Set Let Me Be Great!?

I am one lazy naturalista but it seems like every time I try something new with my hair it's a SUPER FAIL. Like why me!? Why can't I be great? I can watch a million and one Youtube tutorials and never figure it. <insert sad face> Whether it's a flexirod set or perm rod set. I mean I want and would love to achieve the perfect curly 'fro but I just don't think it's in the cards for me. I have no advice on this topic and just wanted to illustrate my frustration with my natural curly kinky hair. Will I continue to try and achieve this perfect curly 'fro...? Um, probably! I want to wear cute hair styles like the popular natural hair Youtubers too. So yes chile, I will be trying again on a rainy Sunday while I watch Netflix.
