This post was intended for immediately after the Sallah break
Hi Lagos Convo familia!!!! How was the sallah break? Hope you are prepping for another restful weekend. I am soooo sorry for being MIA, but now that I look back at it, I was really necessary.
It was a period of reflection, reorientation and a major paradigm shift (Lol @ Noble it’s our inside joke) So this post is basically a re-introduction of myself to the LC family and a catch up.
My name is La Rose Noire, in simple in English- The Black Rose, black because I am African, black because I am Nigerian, Black because I am strong, black because my blood is swimming in melanin, although I am light-skinned but that don’t mean nuffin. I am a feminist. I am a lover of all things fun, weird, crazy and quirky. Most times I am over my head but I can’t help it. I laugh a lot about everything and I am a tease; it gets me in trouble. I love writing, it’s a way of expressing how I feel and the things that are important to me. I am very indecisive, black is my favorite color but these days I think I am veering towards the nude color and all.
I just saw the first episode of Rob & Chyna and I love it, don’t judge me it’s the only thing I am watching on E! I couldn’t stop smiling at the series premier, Chyna’s different weave colors and her cute baby bump. I think I am all shades of petty now (hehe), better watch out, this mouth is just lost its filter.
The past few months have been awesome, amazing and simply breath-taking, sure there has been some ups and downs but aint that what life is about. My hair is fuller and longer, but my curls aren’t defined yet. I think my butt is growing too or maybe my jeans is just too tight. I have new friends who think am weird/crazy (hello!!!!), I found myself in an environment where I could totally be and express myself, I didn’t have anyone telling me ‘oh, why is your hair like this? why aren’t you wearing makeup? I don’t like how you dress’ It was and still is the best time of my life; I felt so many things I thought I had under control and I have finally come to terms with who I really am.
I like the redefined and upgraded me, I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world. I have no regrets; I don’t think I have made the wrong decisions, they may not be the wisest but am pretty cool with them. If I had a do-over I would do it all again. I may not be consistent with most things, but I always find my way back.
This is me…my life, my flaws, my strengths, my Lagos Convo, my lifestyle.
