Carol’s Daughter 25th Anniversary Celebration

Hey Cuties, Last week I attended the blackest event I think I've ever attended in my life. It was such a moment, and I fully took it in. I was honored to be a guest of Carol's Daughter 25 Anniversary celebration at the Blacksonian in Washington, DC. Also, know as the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC).

Natural Hairstyles for Kids. Vol. II

Hey Cuties, Today we're talking hair; in particular we're talking hairstyles. Last year I wrote a post titled Natural Hairstyles for Kids, to date it is my most popular blog post ever.  We are less than a month out from the first day of school so I thought it was a good time to roll out a part II of that post. This time I've included a bonus wash day hack that will ease the hair washing process.

Love the Hair You Wear {Event Recap}

Hey Cuties, My Hump Day Wednesday is jammed packed with things to do. I fly out to the New Orleans for the Essence Festival in the morning.  I’ve done all the laundry in the house, I’ve been cleaning and packing and cleaning off the DVR and about fifty other things. I always feel like I have time to do this and that and then I’m always in a rush. I will be posting to social media {Twitter, IG, FB & Snap} the entire time so make sure you take the trip with me. Hello, the ultimate #FatSnacks.

Kicking … and taking names. Hello 2016

Happy Hump Day!  My schedule says we are back at work, but my body hasn't gotten the memo yet.  I shared my year in review with you and the reception made me feel like a rock star.  Now I want to share my 2016 with you. Buckle up, you know for safety, don't touch the radio but by all means do enjoy these jams. It's a new year but I'm the same Cutie, just turning up on these dreams.  I'm sharing them with you because you're my cuties; and you will keep me accountable.

Happy New Year : MimiCutelips 2015 Year in Review

Hey Cuties,

We are down to the last day of 2015, Happy New Year! I appreciate you for rocking with me. I hope I've shared something that connected with you one way or another.  I read all your comments and I try to reply to each of them. I don't take your time for granted, you could be anywhere in the world but I appreciate that you come here to chat with me. This year has been major in a rather low key kind of way. Sometimes it takes some reflecting to realize just how far you've come. That applies across the board in life, when we are in the thick of things it's hard to realize the how far we've come. 2015 was a year of preparation for me and let me tell you MIMICUTELIPS IS READY HONEY!

Natural Hairstyles for Kids

Hey Cuties,

Today I wanted to share some great natural hairstyles for kids. It's been a year since I posted about my daughters hair regime, you can read it HERE. The short story is cradle cap took most of her hair out and I've been growing it back. I wash her hair weekly and put it in a protective style for the week. Once the weekend hits I take her hair down and let her wear puff balls/ponytails to let it breathe.  Below are some of the styles I've done on her hair.  These styles can be done on a variety of textures and lengths of hair so don't be afraid to try them out if you like them. I learned to braid when I was a child so that comes easy for me. If you don't know how to cornrow I suggest trying out the two strand twist hairstyles.  I've included a tutorial on how to flat twist at the bottom.
