Seems like a great documentary

Would love to see it

Let me start of by saying that reading abt the synopsis of the movies directed by Josiah Kibira I can def' feel his pride of his "Bongoland" and its "Swahili" language

Josiah experienced life in both his native Tanzania and America, reading the synopsis of his documentary called "Two Africas in America" I thought to myself he gets it, the misunderstanding btw Africans and African Americans, the ocasional rejection of African Americans towards Africans, the complex of superiority that Africans have towards African Americans.ect.....some of you reading this may relate:)

Josiah Kibira lives in the States and is by day a software testing engineer, but you know how passions are, they never let you sleep, on his spare time he directs movies

In the Bongoland Movie series , Josiah talks abt feeling of not fititng in either Africa or America after having lived in both lands, the main character Juma moves back to Tanzania after a tulmutious stay in the States, back in Bongoland even with a job and a girlfriend he still can't find peace within his self, the poverty, the lazyness of our administration and corruption he sees in his land greatly bothers him...

He shot the movie in his native land and was surprised by the warm welcome his team received...
Wishing Mr Kibira much success and not to get discouraged rather keep working harder and dreamer and maybe his dream of having a movie from his part of Africa being nominated for a top award:)

Here's the trailer for 2 Africas in America:

The lyrics to " Beautiful Flower" inspired this post
I thought of just featuring a few African women and I ended up with
30 Fabulafricanas!!
We just gotta believe in ourselves despite what people may tell us,
show us, or make us feel
God made us in His Image so we can only be beautiful:)
These women are very different from one another, some are skinny, some aren't , some are bootylicious and they are all from different parts of Africa,
look at them look at yourselves:)
"This is a song for every girl who's ever been through something
she thought she couldn't make it through,
yeahI sing these words because I was that that girl too
Wanting something better than this but who do I turn to?
Now we're moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives,
mmmmmhhCause you're beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind
And there is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you
Who are beautiful
Yeah you, who are brilliant
Yeah you, who are powerful
Yeah you, who are resilient
This is a song for every girl who feels that she is not special
Cause she don't look like a supermodel,
Coke bottle
The next time the radio tells you to shake your money maker
Shake your head and tell them,
tell 'em you're a leader
Now we're moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives,
YeahCause you're beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind
And there is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you
Who are beautifulYeah you, who are brilliant
Yeah you, who are powerfulYeah you
who are resilientYeah you,
who are beautifulYeah you
who are brilliantYeah you,
who are powerful
Yeah you, this song is for you
Yeah you, this song is for youYeah you
, this song is for you
Yeah youYeah you,
you are brilliant "

This summer it's all bt celebrating our natural beauty on
"cos we african women are doing it and doing it well"

I am determined to make this summer all about celebrating you, us the best way possible:)
Rhassoul Clay or Argile is from the Atlas Mountains of Maroc, it's a clay rich in natual minerals (potassium, magnesium, calcium ect..)
Marocan women have been using it for rainy seasons and many more rainy seasons..

Why should you want to know more abt it?

  • It's "banging" for thinning hair, it gives volumes to your hair

  • It can be used as a facial mask and it's said to be good against acne

  • It reduces flakiness, a bas les pelicules!!

  • It removes dead skin

  • It can also be used to fight bad breath

Rhassoul Hair Mask Recipe:

Mix your rhassoul clay with almand oil, palm oil, honey and eggs and use the mixture on your hair for 15 minutes before rincing it ...this should give you soft, healthy hair...I haven't used the recipe yet but I intend to this summer rock my fro so I shall be trying it on a weekly basis...I'll let you know if I see results:)

By the way if you have cool natural recipes for body and hair care that you would like to

You can buy it at:

Djaaa summer 2009 is going to be all abt healthy fierce:)

I went to the gym yesterday and seeing other women in my age group (early 30s) struggling with their weight as I am made me rethink this whole health issue...

I'm not going to say anything new on the subject, there's plenty of information on the subject via the net, mags, book, ur own women conversation but yest' seeing all these beautiful women carrying extra weight me included made me tell myself that we need to take better care of ourselves...

Yes we are all beautiful within our bodies and most import' our spirit but let's be for real
de for real wouldn' t we all want to be healthy and be able to wear whatever we want and not have anything" hanging"?

My number one concern is the health aspect, a lot of older women I've encoutered in Africa deal with arthritis, "tension", heart problems and it's in part due to the way they took care of themselves, I don't know abt u but I would love to be a pretty with grey hair but mostly healthy woman and I know that if I don't take the right decisions now it will only be a dream

Yesterday was a wake up call, I no longer want to dream of being healthy but would like to live it...

So if some of you struggle with the same issue as I do, please let's challenge ourselves together, we can do "a before and after"thing a la Oprah , if you have a successful story on how you changed physically and mentally please share..

Speaking of Oprah, she had a show with Bob Green on weight and health which was quite informative:
Oprah's Confessions abt weight gain (not gossip it's from her tv show)

So My goal this summer is to lose 10 kilos and feel great again not just ok but ...great:)
I also would like to reduce my sweet intake, I'm a "sweet mais alors sweet de sweet person" but it's not working out for me, so I have to find a way to work around it...

While I do, increase my vegies and fruits intake

I guess it's a never ending journey but I would like to be in the driver seat instead of the passenger seat now:)

So fabulafricanas What's your Health goal for this summer?

Here are a few sites to help u reach your goals:
We got to take care of ourselves wayee:)
