I haven’t had extensions since 2005. I have a history of playing in my hair and changing up its styles. I was currently working with a twa. It was long enough to braids twist, and put into Bantu knots. But lord knows I was getting tired of my Afro. My lovely sister spent 8 hours working on my crown, and for that I love her even more. I wore this style for the last 3 months and it was a glorious 3 months.

“The guidelines I follow are adapted from my family and into my designs. My father is a man that does not fear color, and Charmed Feathers accessories are always colorful and vibrant. My mother is a woman who taught me to be myself  and not to follow the crowd. I like to believe that being true to  yourself is as natural as you can get.” -Rebekah Christie (Wearing Shareen earrings and Natasha body chain from The Butterfly Link Collection) 

I’m in love with my hair crystals. I counted the days till my hair was long enough to wear them.

Today I spent a few hours in my kitchen making jerk steak, candy yams, and white rice with vegetables. I was forced to remember how blessed I am. I’m very grateful for the food that God provides. So not only do I eat well but my guests and loved ones are also fed. Today I’m grateful for 1. Food in my cabinets & fridge 2. The pleasure of cooking 3. Quality food. 4. The utensils to prepare meals 5. Having access to food whenever I want and need it. #30daygratitudechallenge #rebekahchristie #thebutterflylink #howtoliveacharmedlife #bw #nhd #naturallyme #afro #ebony #coils #naturalhaircommunity #hotd #naturallyshesdope #coilyhair #coneyisland #fun #bodychain

It’s been a blast rocking my twists but I so missed my hair. I was extremely eager to see my growth, I really missed my curls. I wasn’t looking forward to the labor of styling my hair. I wish I could skip past the part where my arms don’t ache, I’m definitely not looking forward to that. But I do feel sexy as always with my short afro. I’ve always felt my best with shorter hair.

I went to FashionAvenueNews fashion show wearing my thigh high boots, army fatigue vest, and pink blouse. I accessorized with my own Charmed Feathers, “Rogue” feather cuffs and a hand-chain. My sister (aphotoluv.blogspot.com) took these photos of me in the station.

I feel like a new women without my twists. I just can’t figure out what color I should dye my hair next? 💇 Photo by @peachluv of

I remember when I was at a youth summit volunteering. I was being surround by a bunch of young girls. One of them asked me about my hair, another asked about my jewelry and another picked and prodded at my clothes. But most of them were just looking up and staring at me. When I replay that moment in my head I change around major details, where I was, what I was doing, and why are unclear. The number of girls vary depending on who I’m telling the story to. But I never mix around how I felt. I never forget because I can’t compare those emotions to anything I’ve felt before. In that instance my palms were shaking and sweaty. My chest was heavy and my stomach was knotted. How I felt was indescribable. In short I was overwhelmed. I couldn’t pinpoint a movement in the room which seemed to stand still. My immediate surroundings were a blur except for the girls standing in front of me. In that moment I could say anything and I knew they would believe me. I couldn’t grasp how much power I had over these young girls mind. I was afraid of that type of power and I didn’t know what to do with it or where to put it.  My brain scanned all the things I could do that could ruin their lives and that scared me even more.

I want to be very clear about what I mean. I have no desire to manipulate any young person. I’m candidly sharing how my subtle impression on a young girls mind made me feel powerful and powerless all at once. I’m also expressing my exact thought process during that wave of emotions. I want to share the profound moment that pointed me in the direction of my purpose.

If I could make that type of impression on a young woman by her just watching me. I knew God had a much bigger plan for me. I knew I would play a role in next generation’s growth. I want to make a difference so impactful I don’t live to see the results. In the moments I was swarmed by a group of youth I was paralyzed with fear because I seen a vision of my role in the world. I pray that God gives me the tools and wisdom needed for such a job. I was blessed to discover my purpose. Most people spend a lifetime searching for theirs or worst, dying without one. I no longer want to keep my purpose a secret.
