 LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this woman! I’m always inspired by women who seem to do it all. Nicole Ari Parker is a actress (most noted for her role in the hit TV drama “Soul Food”), model, wife and entrepreneur. Now add to that list, star of the all-new production of Tennessee Williams’ Broadway classic, A Streetcar Named Desire. This multi-ethnic cast also stars two-time Golden Globe Award nominee Blair Underwood, two-time Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega and actor Wood Harris who starred in “Above the Rim” and “Remember the Titans.” Nicole Ari Parker attended the opening night after party sporting a new curly cut and color. She looks absolutely fabulous with hubby, actor Boris Kodjoe on her arm…Tell us what you think of Nicole’s new look in the comment section below.

Naps on the Street: Solange at Stuart Weitzman Spring Event [PHOTOS]

Solange Knowles looked absolutely fab this past Wednesday at the Shop Spring with Stuart Weitzman event in New York City. One thing I really admire about Solange’s style is that it is chic and polished. Her wild, yet styled afro adds unexpected uniqueness and interest. Her yellow skirt was paired with Stuart Weitzman Mary Jane pumps in a pastel green. (Pictured)  Can we get a round of applause for the shoes?

Product Review: Jamaican Mango & Lime Transitions Naturals Coiling Creme Pudding

Okay. I must start by saying that I am reluctant to do the this product review because when I first tried the product, I ABSOLUTELY HATED IT. (I probably lost a potential sponsor right there…) Anyway, how I found out about this product, was that I just happened to be browsing the hair product aisle at Target when low and behold a natural hair product for only $6.99 caught my eye. “$6.99!!! Are you kidding me?,” I thought to myself, as the euphoria of cheapness overwhelmed my body and mind. If the price doesn’t get you, the smell will because this product smells heavenly!

My first mistake using this product was that I did not read and comprehend the instructions. The front of the product says “curl definition”. I had an image in my mind of these gloriously defined coils. So, I slathered the product throughout my wet hair, attempting to do a wash and go style, and you know what happened? It dried into this humongous poof on top of my head. Now, anyone who knows me, knows that I love my afro, but this was not the look I was going for. In their defense, I probably should have taken heed to the directions where it says to section the hair and begin coiling, then let it set under the dryer or let air dry. (I’m assuming they mean you should use this product to do coil/comb twists or coil/finger twists and coil twistouts–which I might try.)

So, I decided to give Jamaican Mango & Lime Transition Naturals Coiling Creme Pudding another try. This time I thought, “maybe it will work on a two-strand twistout?” Um, no. Sorry honey, try again…It was quite possibly the ugliest twistout I have ever done. Poofy, no curl definition, nothing. However, even after all that, I still have one good thing to say about this product:

IT MAKES MY AFRO LOOK FABULOUS. It’s soft, coily and fluffy and it smells divine. Another thing I liked, was that the creme is not caky and goes on smooth. So, your hair is not all white with product and you don’t have to wait for it to dry. Just a disclaimer: Every one’s hair is different and you may get different results. It goes to show that reading is fundamental…lol. Use products as directed. Try this product out…it’s only $6.99.
