Setting these monthly goals can also bring clarity and may produce results faster than you normal. As I seek to accomplish this month’s goals, I hope that you may achieve yours as well. If you wish, you can share some of your goals in the comment section below.

So you’ve gotten into the wonderful hobby that is cosplay. You have chosen the character that you want to dress up as. The costume isn’t too hard to tackle, but where on earth are you going to find that bright pink hair to wear. Have absolutely no fear, as I’ve come with a compiled list of some of the cosplay wig stores online.

As someone who lives in the Caribbean, it can be difficult to find reasonably priced wigs for your cosplay. You know what with the exchange rate and all. There’s a belief that the cheaper something is, the lower the quality of side item. Personally I find this to be true in many cases, but there’s always exceptions to the rule.

10 Alternative Black YouTubers To Check Out

alternative black youtubers

When I was younger, I was heavy into media like anime and alternative music. I was even into Japanese fashion and scene culture. However as a young black girl, there was literally no one that looked like me. As such, I was easily discouraged when I wanted to get into say goth or kawaii fashion. Nowadays the game has changed and a lot more people who are doing  blogs and YouTube. But if you don’t know where to look, it can still be a bit difficult. Therefore to help you out, I’ve made a list of five alternative Black YouTubers that you should check out.

This post is not the end all be all of black alternative YouTubers, or one based on popularity. It is a list that I compiled based on the YouTubers who I want and videos that I enjoy. If you want to see who made my list, then continue reading after the jump.

Becoming A New Me

new me, change, naomindoll, new blog

As some of you may know, but I’m sure some are still in the dark, I have a new blog. A new blog and a new domain wich actually leads into something bigger. A new me. At the end of 2015, I set myself a list of goals that I wanted to carry out for the year. And I’ll be honest, I haven’t really been able to do any of the yet, and it’s a bit frustrating.  It makes no sense to give up however, and then start the following year. That’s a vicious cycle that I, and many like me fall into. We put off what we can do today, for tomorrow. And tomorrow is always right around the corner for us but it’s never ‘now’. In this post I’m going to talk about not only this new blog but a new me. A new Naomi ‘N Doll and a new Chloe.

Anyone who follows me on Instagram (and if you’re not already, then you definitely should), would know that I’ve recently been posting a lot of crochet related photos on there. This may come as a shock to some since it’s not a skill that I often talk about. This post isn’t just about how I got into it, but may also help you, if you’re curious about getting into crocheting as well.
