This blog is about how a late bloomer-finally takes a stab at some of her personal dreams. Let’s start with Dream #1 – JOINING THE PEACE CORPS. Status: Actively serving as a PCV in the Republic of Azerbaijan. But it doesn’t stop there…

Presentation Remember the story of the tortoise and the hare? I believe I’m the tortoise. I have an affinity with Dr. Pepper, spend too much money on books, and I swear everything can be fixed. After countless dating Faux Pauxs, I finally have a great boyfriend. My cat loves him more than me, but he loves me more than masturbation. I’m a college graduate and one of the many african americans that doesn’t identify with THE GAME or anything on BET.
- Interest: Dancing, Traveling, riding motorcycles, cooking, reading, soaking up the sun, sleeping, playing with my bad cat, kissing my boyfriend, cooking for my sisters, shopping and most importantly giving something to someone who may not have what I have. Also staying open to receiving.
- Favorite films: Wall E, 300, Scent of Woman, She Hates Me, Do the Right Thing, UP, Crooklyn, Muppets take Manhattan, Into the Wild, 300(again), THOR
- Favorite Music: Anything that stirs my emotions.
- Favorite books: The Alchemist, The History of God, oh the list is longer than you really want to know.

This blog is home of 2 afro sisters living an intercultural life in Germany. Here we share our daily afro-euro experiences and our passion for the arts and culture, fashion, mode, design and everything in between. We love all things afro, ethno, and boho(bohemian) .
Donna and Lucy are the ladies behind this blog. We are not only best buddies but also sisters-in-law. Living in an interracial marriage does come with it´s challenges. Unfortunately one encounters lots of misunderstanding and even prejudice from “potential” friends. We are very lucky we have each other and we live a very similar lifestyle….. It makes the friendship quite easy-going, relaxed and rewarding. Donna Nakumba Axenkopf was born and grew up in a beautiful little coastal town called Victoria in Cameroon(West Africa). The sea was my first love and I come alive each time we meet. I presently live with my beautiful and loving intercultural family in good old Deutschland(Germany)….. Lucy Katana Straubmueller was born and grew up in Kampala the capital of Uganda (East Africa). Coming from an ecclectic family that seemed eccentric to some… i learnt at an early age to keep an open mind .I presently live with my beautiful & intercultural family in Germany as well.

Read the who and why behind the blog:
It’s up in the air and ready to go. My blog on Black hair from a european perspective. I am also writing a book on trend, styling and managing ‘black hair’. For the view americans amoungst you, this might seem strange, but on this subject, here in Europe we are far behind.
As a ‘kick off’ for the book, and also for feedback and inspiration, I started working on this here blog.
That’s always been my nickname as a kid, and getting older I started to get used/ or even like it. I have always been working in a creative environment, not driven by ambition, but by the need to be surrounded by creativity, regardless of whatever I had to do. Workspace and location are very important but it’s mostly the people I work with who inspire me.
I love music, food, cooking, looking out for new places, trendwatching, chicken, couchette hats, portrait cameos, chicklit, my collection of biographies of people I find inspiring, Lychees, Flow Magazine, my G11 camera by Canon with leather retro cover, Banana bread, hatboxes, New York, Copenhagen, Sushi, Mac computers, my Iphone, white wine, classic Vespa’s and last but not least, I have a deep rooted fascination with Black Hair.
It’s not hard to detect where this obsession came from. Having a dutch blond mom and an Aruban father with a strong afro, I had hair issues for as long as I can remember. On top of this, being raised in Scandinavian Norway didn’t help. Finding the right product for my hair in Oslo, back in the 80′s, was as easy as finding a needle in a haystack.
Therefore I have always gained as much information as I could on black hair, bought books on this subject, had my hair braided in the most unattractive styles when I was on a family holiday by my aunt’s, just to see how skilled and swift the pattern would appear… It was like magic!
Before I knew it, I developed a hair fetish…
So here it is, a blog on black hair trends, products, scoops, and just fun things to see, know or read. I hope you will enjoy it. I hope you will take out the time to see the blog.
