Louisiana and the flood of 2016

For those of us who are familiar with the flood of 2016, you know that unpredictable storm brought grief and devastation to southeast Louisiana at what we predicted to be the end of hurricane season. Also known as the ‘100-year rain event”, this rainstorm moved in as a hurricane without the wind and without a warning. At the peak, close to 20% of businesses in the state of Louisiana were affected by the storm, while over 6,000 businesses experienced physical flooding throughout East Baton Rouge, Livingston, Ascension, and other surrounding parishes. While the cleanup and the federal assistance has dragged out and stress the locals to this day, what is remarkable is the way in which the people of south Louisiana have managed to stay optimistic and true to tradition.

With the flood of 2016 also came another storm: presidential election season. When the annual SpanishTown parade came around in the city of Baton Rouge, came a new theme of ‘Come Hell or High Water’. Although we have recently lost one of the founding fathers Charles ‘Fish’ Fisher, he didn’t miss the fun of the response his beloved SpanishTown had to say on the 2016 flood and presidential election.

While SpanishTown parade is known for its quirky themes and pink flamingos that pepper the neighborhood in downtown Baton Rouge, its tradition stands as being an unbridled voice of the people back then, now, and in years to come.

In memory of Charles ‘Fish’ Fisher

Facebook and the Bystander Effect

Yes, I know that I am normally posting about my website’s latest fashions and about the contests I sponsor on Polypore and my travels but…..I had to take a second to discuss something. Usually, Facebook is full of rants of current events, calls for release of everyone from political prisoners to freeing distant cousins that are incarcerated at the nearby county jail. Its freedom of speech and one of the many things that makes this country unique.

While in the same breath, its also the thing that allows us to observe one’s true thought when in a setting of relaxation or on a topic in which people have a strong opinion. I was told by a wise person that ‘three things in this world or at the origin of all wars: women, religion, and politics”. I thank that person for all of the wise words throughout my years and understand that while those are the origins, they branch out into many, many subjects. Let’s take one subject that gets a lot of peoples’ blood boiling, especially in the civil and criminal laws, professors, psychologists, researchers, and studies alike – that’s the concept of the Bystander Effect.

Yale University referenced Professor Joel E. Disdale (University of California, San Diego) with his experiment of the Kitty Genovese murder in New York City, March 13, 1964 (Dimsdale, J, 2016). In this case, in short, the subject is chased down and assaulted in public, escapes, is chased down again and stabbed numerous times; this happens over a timespan of 30 minutes. In a series of events, the more people are around, the less likely (about seven percent) feel inclined to actually help the victim.

Then enters Facebook post that proves this theory:

While this Facebook question seems porposterious and downright absurd, it proves a point. There are people who feel that there way of apathy is correct, despite the law or the common, usually for most, unthought of judgement to consider another person’s life over circumstances. While the posting was a harmless scenario that was not a true situation, it allowed people, who replied with personal opinions, to openly discuss the fact that they were within the percentile of bystanders. Amazing.

 

 

My Crochet Braids Night Time Routine😴

Hi Everyone!!!!

Each and every time I make a video and post for you, I want you to know that I am absolutely so excited. I try to make videos about things that I’ve had encounters with that others have, but I may have had a different experience, enter the crochet braids with deep twist hair.

I’d seen people with this hair and thought it to be just gorgeous so I wanted to try it on my own hair. Well, when dealing with crochet braids with the deep twist hair, my stylist failed to tell me that I would have a nightly routine until AFTER we installed the braids. Here are the braids and my video I made on it:

 

I felt confident about my crochet braids and truly didn’t thimg having the deep twist style would be much of an issue. Well…..yes, these crochet braids are beautiful and well worth the time spent to install them. On the other hand, be prepared to have an allotted time to watch tv, listen to music, or talk to someone on the phone.

Your night-time routine for your deep twist crochet braids can easily take about 20 to even 30 minutes to finger-comb, saturate the hair and using whatever product you fell comfortable with.

I chose to use Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk sparingly and saturate my hair with water. This helped to make my curls fresh and bouncy the next day. Very little frizz throughout the day with using Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk, which is why I am recommending it. Another reason why its recommended is because its in your local drugstore like CVS.
