i feel like Lisa Bonet

I was and still am a huge Cosby Show fan. I fell uber inlove with Lisa Bonet because of that show. Seriously she was my girl crush of all girl crushes.

I was all set to cut all of it off in a shorter due when last minute, because my appointment time didn't work out, I ended up following an African lady on 125th Street in Harlem, to basically a sweatshop of a braiding salon complete with prayer rugs for all those who were observant Muslims and pan handlers with everything from gold earrings, to chocolate to MAC cosmetics. 2.5 hours later and voila...
