She keeps me grounded and keeps me from complaing about my aches and pains when she has so much more to bear.

I have followed Afro Bella for some time, initially while wearing my hair straight, much like Rae. I admired your posts highlighting women with natural styles but at the same time felt slightly isolated. I have been natural for 2 years now and continue to relate to women with straight and natural hair as at the end of the day it is not their hair that I relate to, but their overall being.

As someone that has followed your site prior to being a natural, I encourage you to continue to post inspiring stories of women regardless of something as simple as their choice of hair style. Although straight styles are often over represented in our community, an inspiring story is an inspiring story and it would be wonderful to continue to show diversity on your site that reflects women beyond naturals. I say this because I found your site just as refreshing and inspiring with straight hair as a I do natural and feel your commentary and readers fill a void we as black women need on the internet. I would hate for women to feel isolated and miss this wonderful site because of their choice of hair.

I hope you do not take this as criticism, I have admired your site for sometime and was happy to see a bit of a change in this post and would love to see more in the future.

I thought her work was lovely but did not purchase anything. I guess I just needed another nudge. This time, I purchased the black pearl wrap bracelet. I can’t wait to get it. Thanks Bella for introducing me to such a wonderfully inspiring Sister.

I just ordered a beautiful bracelet. I will cherish it; this woman has soul and spirit and is sooooo encouraging. We need to support our sister. Her story is hear rendering and priceless. Thanks so much for sharing…I’m not sure why I never saw this Essence issue.
