I have a confession to make. I'm a hostess at a restaurant and one night we had a reservation made for a table under the name Erwin and when I was writing up reserved table cards for that night I wrote "Daddy" on that one and had to stop and laugh at my dumb self for like five minutes before fixing it because I was so highly amused by my bullshit.
THIS IS HILARIOUS LMFAO?? This is seriously something I would do ahaha. But Erwin isn’t even a sexy name yet look at what Erwin Smith is doing to us? I’m glad you caught yourself though, otherwise that Erwin would have been looking around for his name card like “Who is this ‘Daddy’ person and why does he have a seat but I don’t?” omg what a disaster if you had to explain yourself.
When I was just entering puberty we occasionally visited one of my cousin’s uncle and they had a daughter that was a few years older and her name is Laila and she’s so beautiful like you don’t even know I’m talking about the kind of beauty you stare at I used to look up to her so much she was goals and she’s still so beautiful now anyway I didn’t like garlic and one time they served dinner and there was this thing with garlic and she told me garlic makes your boobs grow and that’s the story of how I spent the next years eating all the garlic of all our meals until I actually started liking it
ok, just saw that stitch femmedplume tagged me in questions lol so here’s my answers.
1. What was the name & fondest memory of your first pet? Sweetpea, my cat. I named her because I used to watch the Popeye cartoon when I was a kid and I liked that name. Fondest memory? Whenever it rained, like a bad thunderstorm, she would come and snuggle with me because she was scared. 2. How often do you change your sheets (be honest)? Once every two weeks 3. How many frenemies do you have at the moment? None, I don’t have any friends besides online friends. God, that sounds awful to say. But, my best friend in the whole wide world moved to Phoenix about 7 years ago and I’ve never found anyone who has as many things in common as we do. I work in an office with 3 other people so I’m not making any friends there and I’m not a member of any church or organization. 4. What pop song do you secretly love? “Still Get Jealous” by Nick Jonas (lookin’ at you Jared) lol 5. What’s something you’re a “hipster” about? (ie, what’s something you know a lot about, & disdain those who really don’t know anything about it liking it/appropriating it?) Grammar/spelling. I am a huge grammar nazi and feel like it really isn’t that hard to make sure you use it correctly. 6. What’s the funniest joke you know? Ok, so it’s a blonde joke but I can tell this because I’m a natural blonde.
A blonde goes on a hot date and ends up making out with the guy in his car. The guy asks if she would like to go in the backseat.
“No!” yells the blonde.
Things get even hotter, and the guy asks again.
“For the last time, no!” says the blonde. Frustrated, the guy asks, “Well, why the hell not?”
The blonde says, “Because I wanna stay up here with you!” 7. Why do you think prejudiced people are so against feminism/racial equality/the minimum wage increase, etc? Because they have been conditioned by their parents and their parents before them to think this way and are not willing/able to open their mind and see things from a different point of view. 8. Do you have a Pinterest? If so, would you be willing to link it so we can follow you? I have one but I haven’t posted anything there in months, tumblr is my Pinterest now lol 9. What’s something you DON’T like about your favorite TV/Movie star, but are afraid to mention lest other fangirls leap upon you in unbridled rage? I feel like sometimes J2 gang up on Misha, and with his history of being bullied and self-harm I’m afraid he might get hurt by it a little. I know it’s done in love, and I know he pranks them right back, but I worry about him sometimes. 10. Do you like jewelry? What’s your favorite piece of jewelry you own? (Pictures, please!) I am not a huge jewelry freak. My favorite pieces of jewelry i own are my wedding and engagement bands,
and my moonstone ring (pictured below, and also featuring the henna tattoo I got today at the International Festival)
11. Where do you hope you’ll be in 5 years? on 20 acres of land, at the same job, in a beautiful house with my wonderful husband
She’sGotNigerianCurls ‘Fro Feature: Tara Ojora of Nature’s Locks
What’s your name and where are you from?
Hiii! My name is Tara Ojora and I’m from Lagos, Nigeria!
Have you been natural all your life? If not, please tell us how and why you decided to go natural
Nope!! My hair journey has had a million ups and downs but, long story short, I relaxed my hair when I was 10 years old (end of 2005) and then I went back to my natural hair in 2011 (around Easter). I decided to go natural because my hair was in THE WORST condition ever! It was weak, dry and limp. My hair was like chin-length but the hair on the crown was literally like an inch long!
Tell us about your Big Chop Day or if you transitioned, about your transition journey.
My hair journey is kinda weird because I transitioned and big chopped! So I cut my hair quite a few times while it was relaxed but I did the major ‘Big Chop’ in 2010. However, I was still relaxing my hair for a few months after that. I decided to stop in mid-late 2010 and transitioned until my hair was at a length where I felt comfortable cutting off the relaxed bits. So a bit of both!
When you have your natural hair out/when you first went natural, is/was there a reaction from family or friends, especially those from the same country you’re from and/or when you go back to your home country
Hmmmm…well any Nigerian knows how outspoken Nigerians can be lol! So yeah, I got a few comments from some Aunties and people I knew about my hair looking messy or ‘out of control’ and stuff like that. But being naturally stubborn, I just laughed and ignored them and carried on wearing my hair out and wild! But generally speaking, people haven’t been very negative about my hair - at least not to my face!
What recent issues have you had with your hair and how are you resolving/have you resolved them?
My hair has a tendency to get very dry and tangled, causing breakage, long detangling sessions and a very frustrated young woman! But I’ve been able to combat this by finding out what products work best for my hair and keep it moisturised. I’ve also been wearing stretched styles (e.g. braid outs, twist outs) and protective styles more often. It has really helped!
What made you decide to take your healthy hair journey seriously and how’s it going so far?
I think I decided to get serious about my healthy hair journey because 1) I saw so many pictures of people with thick, long, beautiful hair and I wanted that! And 2) in 2013 (when I started embracing my natural hair), I got to a point in my life where I became very health conscious and I became very aware of what I was putting in and on my body so that naturally extended to my hair. And so far, it’s going really well!! I’m really enjoying the journey. Even though I complain about my hair sometimes, doing my hair is genuinely therapeutic for me! And I love seeing my hair get stronger and longer due to the TLC I give it.
What do you think of this new era were in, where many more ladies are big chopping/transitioning and embracing their natural hair?
I think it’s great! At the end of the day, it’s your hair and you can do whatever you want with it but I just love the way natural hair looks. And I feel that whenever ladies embrace and love themselves as they truly are, it’s a great thing.
How would you describe your hair and your relationship with it?
Lol wow interesting question! I would say that my hair is a little temperamental and stubborn at times lol. It has its moments when it just REFUSES to cooperate and I’m like “ARGHHHH just work with me!” so it can be a bit of a love-hate relationship but the love probably outweighs the hate a little bit lol What’s your typical, current hair regime-wash days, styling, protective styles… So generally speaking, I cowash my hair once a week (unless I’m rocking a wash and go, in which case I cowash every 3-4 days). And I deep condition once a week! That’s like my cardinal rule! I’m trying to keep my hair regimen pretty simple so after deep conditioning and cowashing, I apply a leave in, sealant (usually coconut oil or shea butter) and a styler then I either rock a wash and go or I do a few braids or twists for a braid out or twist out! I shampoo my hair usually once every 3 weeks to really clarify it and get rid of any build up. I am currently about 7 months into a heat free year and it’s going pretty well!
What are your three favourite things about your hair?
1) The versatility - I can do almost anything with it!!
2) The volume - I love love love big hair!!
3) The thickness - my hair has gotten super thick over the past couple of years and I love it
How do you feel about shrinkage and how do you deal with it?
I find shrinkage pretty annoying to be honest lol! Like I’ve worked so hard to get my hair to this length and it just shrinks!! I generally just wear stretched styles (e.g. braid outs, twist outs) or I just make myself accept it.
What are your favourite hair products so far?
Well I am probably the queen product junkie so I’m just gonna tell you my top 5 or else we’ll be here forever!
1) Giovanni Direct Leave In Conditioner
2) Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
3) Coconut oil
4) Shea butter
5) Any Shea Moisture deep conditioner!
What are your favourite protective styles?
For protective styling, I usually do box braids, two strand twists or the classic bun!
What 3 pieces of vital advice would you leave to other naturals?
1) Deep conditionnnnn!! It is vital!!!
2) Moisturise and seal!! There’s nothing more annoying than spending the whole day washing and moisturising your hair and it ends up like tumbleweed because you didn’t seal
3) Use the right products for you. Try different types of products and see what works for you. Just because it works for your friend, it doesn’t mean it will work for you. Don’t stick with a bad product just for the sake of it.
Any favourite natural hair bloggers? Please link them if so! We can never have enough naturalistas to look up to and learn from
i honest to god would leave tumblr had i not invested a good 4 or 5 years into this. the updates are uncalled for and make it hard to use all in the name of MININIMALISM, it’s always glitching, there are awful adverts on the site which nobody wants to see and tbfh i don’t want to embrace my “uncomfort” zone or any other zone that you’re trying to sell me. legit love my blog and followers too much to leave but am just so furious at how this website is not user friendly and instead of addressing glitches and things we don’t like, they just make the fucking logo turn into different colours when you hover over it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey I don't know if I am a respectful shipper? I think I might be but I want to be respectful so badly because I feel like I am invading something I shouldn't be. How can I be a better shipper? I don't tag them in my photos of tronnor when I do post them, and don't use the tronnor hashtag but I don't know what else to do. I just really want to be respectful.
I know what you mean, sometimes we get carried away with shipping. The main thing on tumblr is to not tag their full names in any post about tronnor. But feel free to use the tronnor tag since they don’t search it and won’t see what we post. make sure to not be too intrusive, so if you seem them in real life, dont ask them about any ship, whether troyl-r or tronnor, and dont @ troye or connor on twitter about anything tronnor related. on tumblr, just make sure you don’t tag them in anything that you think could make them uncomfortable including: edits, head cannons, imagines, fanfics, or anything analyzing or speculating their relationship. dont feel bad that you ship them, and continue to respectfully unless they straight up tell us to stop. Their happiness is what’s most important and they will never be comfortable sharing anything with us if we continue making them uncomfortable.
so i was thinking about soulmate situations and what do you think of this: someone has a soulmate's name on their arm, but one day they wake up and it's changed, with no trace of the previous name and they start panicking because no one's soulmark just disappears and what happened and are they okay?? and they google it and it turns out that it happens when a trans person changes the name they use and the person's just like thank god, they're trans... they're trans... my soulmate's okay ;_;
O M G YESSSSS I LOVE THIS HEADCANON, FOUR FOR YOU, ANON, I AM TOTES ADDING THIS TO MY TAG
About 11 or 12 years ago, back when I frequently used 'Kitana Hunter’ as an OC and self-insert, Mokuba Kaiba needed ‘my’ email address and so, this sprang to mind. I decided to stick with Kitana as an internet persona and went on to make an actual email address, so uh, yeah. kittykittyhunter stuck.
2) Middle name?
I don’t have one, unfortunately.
3) If you could own a fictional pet what would it be?
A lil dragon would probably be cute…!
4) Favourite Colour?
Purple, red, blue, yellow. I like all colours, really.
5) Favourite song?
Nothing at the moment! I just have the Ace of Diamond OST stuck in my head right now.
6) Top 3 fandoms?
Sengoku BASARA, Prince of Tennis and Ace of Diamond.
7) Why do you like tumblr?
I like hohoho-ing with my friends and other people about my favourite series and other whatsits. :)
8) Tag 8 followers/people you follow
I won’t be tagging anyone this time around, but please feel free to do it if you’d like it!
How many people am I going to have to unfollow, to keep your name from scrolling on my dash. You are such a horrible person, it makes me feel sick to my stomach when I see the people you rope into RPing with you. Since I know it's just a matter of time before you toss them away like a used kleenex and move on to to someone else who will stroke your over-inflated ego and pander to your gross insecurities.
With enough ambition to change the world, I am a giving soul. I am not afraid. Names John Julian Eckert.

04.07.15 Sukira Radio: Kai talking about his niece
Xiumin:You know that Kai is known for his laziness, but he is a "joka babo" (t/n: someone who loves/adores his niece a lot). Tell us about her.
Ryeowook:You have a niece?
Kai:Yes, I do. She was born last year, her name is Rahee. She's so cute that I always seem to go home to see her. I want to buy her everything.
Baekhyun:Does she look like you?
Kai:No, she looks a lot like my brother-in-law.
Chen:Tell us more.
Kai:Well, first of all she was many talents so I personally want her to be on those kid shows. If you ask her to do an impersonation of Kim Yuna(figure skater), she does it. If you say Son Yeonjae(rhythmic gymnast), she does it also. She even pretends to swim when you say to do Park Taehwan. She has a lot (of talents)
