Happy 1 Year Anniversary, Natural & Fabulous!

8:59:00 AM 8 Comments A+ a-



One year ago today, I posted my very first blog post on Natural & Fabulous. I started my blog as a way to document my own personal hair journey and helping educate those who were newly natural or transitioning. I didn't see very many blogs dedicated to those who were transitioning and I remember what it was like to spend hours at a time on the internet researching things about natural hair. 


Here we are a year later, and the blog is going strong! There are so many people I would like to thank for helping me with this journey:



  • Rod of Modest Media for creating my logo and design. Thank you for the countless back and forth emails to help make my vision a reality.
  • My parents for helping spread the word about my site to family and friends. I have the BEST parents in the world!
  • To Kanetta (My BFF) for the lunchtime brainstorming/venting calls. LOL 
  • To Epitome (BeigeBunnie) for being one of the very first people to comment on my blog. Thanks girl!
  • To Ken for taking over parenting duties so that I could spend time writing and for encouraging me to keep pushing with this blog. 
  • To Dave for being the first (and only so far!) guy to be interviewed on the blog about natural hair from a male perspective. 
  • To Val for being my first very "Natural Spotlight" and source of information during my journey. Thank you so much for the shared information. 
  • To Traycee for being my first giveaway winner and second "Natural Spotlight". She big chopped a two weeks after me so we've been on this journey together. 
  • To Lisa for allowing me to video her big chop (I did it for her) and post the video to share with the world. Thanks girl!
  • To Bella for being such a great sport and allowing me to interview her about her curly hair and caring for the hair of biracial children. Thank you!
  • To Latysha, my first international interview (she lives in Italy) and reader. I appreciate your support!
  • To Rhian of Curls of the World. Thank you so much for allowing me to be apart of your vision and helping me with my own. 
  • To Shea Moisture for posting my review on their Facebook page and also reaching to me. Chimole - it was a pleasure speaking with you!
  • To the many who have tweeted and retweeted articles on my blog - thank you!
  • To my other friends and family for supporting the blog and providing positive feedback. 



And most importantly - to my son for being my motivation to do everything I do in life. He is the reason that I keep going everyday!


Thank you everyone for making my vision become a reality. There is more to come!
