Curls in Space- Follow CurlyNikki's Adventures!


Hey hey!

For the last five years I've been working with women overseas to tell the stories of curlies around the world. Together we've raised the profile of several non-profit organizations and educated folks (myself included!) in the process. I've partied with Jamaican curlies living in Tokyo, have been welcomed into ethnic neighborhoods in Rio De Janeiro, walked with Lions in South Africa and survived a bomb threat** in India.

**okay so my scary ass saw an unattended duffel bag and freaked out.

I had a very long bucket list in 2011... and we did that. Every last item - check! What do you do when you've achieved your goals? You set new ones. But where to go next? I only vacay in the winter and spring, and I refuse to leave cold to end up in cold (in case you haven't caught on to the tropical theme of my endeavors yet.) And while I knew it was time to take shit to the next level, we couldn't decide on a destination for Spring 2015. It was just when we had it narrowed down to return visits to see Captain Alvaro or Dance Queen Nina when we remembered something - the sky isn't the limit for Natural Nation. We see borders and boundaries and tear them down. No is not an option, especially when you know the right people

Let me set the mood:

In a chance encounter last year, hubby and I met the wife of Enrico Palermo, Vice President of Operations for Virgin Galactic, the world's first commercial spaceflight company. She happens to be a fellow curly girl and a huge fan of the site, so naturally we hit it off. A few dinners and a glass bottle of wine later, hubby and I joked that she should sneak us on the next flight out.  Her response?

"I could make that happen." #RecordScratch #Crickets #GimmeDatBuddyPass

5 Newbie Natural Hair Youtubers to Watch!


 by Kanisha Parks of BlackNaps.org

YouTube has been a haven for natural hair enthusiasts for several years now. It’s a place where you can learn new styles, watch product reviews, and find other naturals who have hair textures similar to your own to help guide you along your journey. Plus, it’s a great way to motivate you throughout your transition, big chop, and life with natural hair. You may already be following the journeys of heavyweights such as My Natural Sistas, CharyJay, and MsVaughn, for example, but there plenty of up and coming natural hair YouTubers ready to get in on the action. I’m always on the hunt for new natural hair Youtubers to follow and we’ve found some excellent contenders on the rise.
