Product Alert | Emma’s Little Creations

‘I love her hair’, said the Caucasian mother!

in All, Baby, Features, News

I realised something recently, my daughter’s hair is an endless source of fascination and interest for the Caucasian mothers I meet in our daily travels. Whether she’s in full Afro mode or has ponytails in hair bands, I will always get a comment and it’s always positive. Even the other babies try to cop a feel.

Weight Loss | 10lbs Down and Counting

/ 15 Feb 2013

It’s been just over 3 weeks since I went back on the Dukan and I’ve lost 10lbs. I have a confession to make in that I’m no longer strictly doing the Dukan diet; it’s more of a general low carb diet which incorporates principles from various diets and loads of common sense. I now monitor my carb and calorie intake using my trusty Fitness Pal app....

The Book Club | Emi’s Curly, Coily, Cotton Candy Hair

/ 03 Dec 2014

It is super important to me that my daughter be surrounded by positive images of black women. I want her to see people who look like her when she watches tv, opens up a magazine or delves into the wonderful world of literature.

Length Check | 2015 – 1st Quarter Update

We are three months into 2015 and I thought now would be a good time to do a length check. I haven’t straightened my hair since January after my big trim so I was itching to break out the straighteners. This is also a great opportunity to update y’all on my post-partum shedding…it was bad!! I had balls of hair floating around the house like...
