Beauty with Kelly

   kk1

Locs of Royalty is a fresh new hair salon operated by a gorgeous mother of two, Kelly King. Kelly is a licensed loctition out of Brooklyn with roots stretching back from St. Anns, Jamaica. Recently I went to get my locs washed and twisted by her and experienced the most liberating moment of my life. Kelly is so sensitive on people’s hair I almost fell asleep. She scrubbed my scalp, moisturized my hair and locked me up in about an hour.

Do yourself a favor, especially, if you’re a locked brother or sister and get your locs treated by Kelly King. She even installs faux dredlocs on those not looking for the permanent style but want to try the look temporarily.
Kelly King is skilled in all areas of locology, and wants you to sit in her chair!

Check her out on facebook.com/kdaloctition to make an appointment. Also visit her shop at 295 Livingston Ave.

See ya in two weeks!

Help is on the Way

If you find yourself living in a shoe box of an apartment in the city, chances are you may have experienced maintenance issues in your building. Usually a result of the supers’ lack of care. But  sometimes, without provocation an emergency can change a person’s living situation forever. Sadly, enough the story doesn’t end there.

If a person experiences a fire, flood or other natural disaster and are rendered homeless a donation based program known as the Red Cross comes in to pick up the shattered pieces. They are limited in what they can do but offer many resources for those who have lost everything. Registration upon arrival allows a survivor to receive medical treatment, housing for a few days, and a small stipend which is placed on a prepaid debit card.

The Red Cross is volunteer based and works completely off of the graciousness of others. From the outreach team that are dispatched as soon as they are alerted about the disaster to the  advisor  who helps contact legal offices on behalf of the survivors are all volunteer participants. Even the money used in order to operate this program is donated and granted.

The Red Cross is a not for profit organization that has several locations, including one in Brooklyn at 4th Avenue in Park Slope. redcross

Im Grouchy when…ppl dont shut up

Shut up

How come I tell you and you still act up

I tell you the deal but you just look stuck

Use your ears more and shut up your mouth

Look with your eyes so you’ll have less doubt

Control your damn self and I’m not being crude

Cuz the way you come off is so damn rude

Get out of my face or I will curse you out

And I dont want to show you what I’m about

I’ve got to calm down because violence is bad

But pop off next time and you will be gagged.
