Beyonce looking exquisite in a head tie (and looking suspiciously like Kim Kardashian)

I have not updated my blogs for a while, however my midlife crisis is firmly in the past so I am moving forward in leaps and bounds!!

Whilst chatting to a girlfriend we got on to the topic of African fabrics and designs and like me she is waiting to lose weight to get some things custom made, I have decided the time is now, no time like the present! She sent me a handful of links some I was already familiar with, but there was one that caught my eye..


I am going to get heaps of inspiration from this site.

One of the first things I do when I am on a shopping site is run a search on the following words, African, African American, and ethnic, largely for my own amusement, I have been amazed at some of my finds from golliwogs to black mammy figurines and other porno stuff I care not to elaborate on. Occasionally I find some thing that makes me smile, I was having a look at my search finds on and found these head bands which I think are just too cute,  I may be a little long in the tooth to wear one, but they would look great on the right person.

Quote from the page “The Alice band boasts an eye-catching traditional West African cotton print in oranges, purples and pinks. The balls range from 4cm to 6cm in diameter and the headband measures 25mm at its widest point.” ; cost 36 USD.

The designer is London based Australian Jennifer Loiselle
