    Much Ado About Hair

    Much Ado About Hair

    A woman's hair is her crowning glory and African women especially face a lot of challenges in trying to maintain their natural hair. Getting it to grow without split ends is tasking for most hence weaves come in handy. But despite the fact that it is easier to hide behind the luxuriousness of all types of hair extensions I still maintain that it is important to take care of your natural hair. I recently made the decision to pay more attention to my natural hair and let it grow out, as I was exhausted with the high cost of maintaining weaves ...>Read More

    FAB Opinion: A Rage of Olympic Proportions... Over Bottled Water

    Today I came across an obnoxiously patronising American man. No, he was not called Mitt. As a matter of fact, I have no idea, what he was called, but I can think of a few colourful words I can call him. I met this chap at WH Smith's in a part of London set to be the centre of the world for the next three weeks, home of the London 2012 Olympics, Stratford. He was buying two bottles of water along with some confectionary, all set for a tour of the Olympic Village and perhaps tonight's opening ceremony. So far, so touristy. It was what happ...>Read More

    FAB Opinion: Amy, Whitney and the Demons Within

    Today, as you may have by now remembered or been reminded, is the first anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s untimely passing. It is hard to believe how it was a year ago we found out about the death of a legend in the making. Finally on her way to win the long battle against drugs, Amy had finally succumbed to her first vice – alcohol. Aged only 27, Amy was found dead at her North London home after an alcohol binge the night before.

    FAB Relationships: Recognising Relationship Red Flags

    Getting married and joining your life with another human being's life is one of the scariest and perhaps most life-altering experiences. It comes with many challenges but also joys - which should usually outweigh the challenges. It's exciting, thrilling, fascinating, and frightening all at the same time, right? Sometimes it's the best decision a person can make. Other times it turns out to be a not so good decision. It is believed that most people who are divorced usually saw tell-tale signs showing them why they shouldn't get married to th...>Read More

    Why Black People Time is Folly

    Why Black People Time is Folly

    Alright guys. I am just going to come right out and say it. It may horrify some. To many it may be like I am questioning the very essence of my being, but I just feel it is something that needs to be addressed.....I think that "Black People Time" is utter folly. To be honest, I came to know "BPT" quite late into my life. Ironic, I know. My family (well, my mother) are quite stringent about time. Sunday mornings involved military precision. Wake up-7:30. Shower-7:35-7:45. Getting dressed, 7:45-8:05 etc, and we would get to Church in ample ...>Read More

    FAB Relationships: Buddies Who Bone.

    For a long time, there has been an issue that has boggled my mind in terms of male/female inter-relations. Well, plenty of things boggle my mind in terms of male/female inter-relations, but this particular one, even more so. I genuinely find it discombobulating that people are still of the idea that "Friends with Benefits" is a notion that actually works for both people involved. I am seriously confused. Are people just delusional, or do they genuinely believe that men and women who are friends, can regularly bump uglies, without there bein...>Read More

    FAB Relationships: A Very Deep Question

    I'm reading a book at the moment and I came across a very deep question. You know, when we are looking for that "perfect" spouse, we usually have all kinds of requirements, right? Your friends probably say you're too picky but you insist you have standards. I think it's very important to have standards. You gotta be with someone you really want to be with. I remember a pastor once said "marry your temptation" and I doubt that anyone wants to live that Luther song for real, you know, the "if you can't be with the one you love, love the one y...>Read More
