Rachel Stewart Jewelry-Funny and true story coming up...Once about a time I was living in Raleigh working at Food Lion...blah.Every so often this glorious woman would come in a slay my life for the duration of her grocery shopping journey.She was everything do you hear me! To me, she was neo-soul dipped in shea butter (I presume).Her hair always came in a second before she did.It was big, bold, and I just wanted to touch it a lil bit (just once, das it).I had just went natural and her hair was my #goals. To my surprise she came in one day , yet her hair was not with her. I was crushed. How could she cut 'our' hair?! This was not discussed with me.I quickly got over it because I thought 'well maybe my hair will be able to catch hers now'.Sike. She told me she cuts every summer and she lets it grow out. Now she was showing off*gggrrrr. She also told me , as I was stalking her on aisle 7, that she did jewelry which made her even more cool. I moved ,got married, and my hair friend was gone. I happen to be minding my business one day in a group of naturalistas of Facebook , and guess who was up there just flaunting (I'm kidding by the way) and showing off their amazing head of hair.It was Rachel.So I friended her and continued my hair envy.I also got a chance to actually see her jewelry and artwork and it is AMAAAAZING!
