Welcome to Fancy La Femme!

    I am Francine, a woman of color, a daughter, a friend, a mother, a licensed mental health professional, natural hair stylist, notorious bargain hunter, crafts/repurposed queen… the owner of FancyNaturals, a small business founded on my West African heritage as a proud Ivorian. Fancy La Femme is collaborative blog, meant to provide a forum for topics relevant to you and me, from beauty, fashion, health, government and food to relationships and even foreign events.  It covers a bit of everything, both by myself and other writers. 

Many of the issues I discuss I’ve experienced myself, whether it’s making the leap to natural hair, motherhood, body concerns, or cultural adaptation.  I hope there is something here for everyone.

     Thank you for joining me on this journey of exploration and discovery.
