Hairy Up

Another protective style I was able to do quickly on old hair. Its a twist around the crown, pulled back into a low pony with the ends tucked.

Product Review: VS Eyeliner

Got the Victoria’s Secret Eyeliner and used it last Friday. Been using it every since. I really liked it. Goes on smooth, lasts for most of the day. I’d be careful about putting it on the waterline of your eyes, by the end of the day it runs a little. You don’t look like a …

When Life Happens

Last Thursday a little thing I like to call, life, happened. Funny story, well not really. But, I’ve only had my car for approximately 2 years at this point and found myself having to get the battery replaced. Just last month I replaced the alternator. FML. If you don’t know the value of either of …

[Curl]bellion

One solo curl decided to take a stand against my protective styling. It managed to stay hidden until I’d finished flat twisting my whole head. Blast.

Looky Looky

Getting winter ready. Just bought my first pair of flats, ever. Yep. Ever. Yay me. *Clap clap bravo* Patterned tights and flats…

I Don’t Want to be Skinny

Let’s just be clear. Being “skinny” was never my intention. I personally prefer the curvier shape. What I want to be is tight, trim and toned. And yes I said the same thing three different ways, you get the message. For those of you that don’t know my weight loss struggle, at this point I’ve …

The Next Oprah Angelou

This is not a drill. Let me tell you just how sick I am of being mediocre despite how much I just wanna be great. I am one of the underdogs. One of the unlucky individuals that should not have made it to where I am. Single parent home. Absent father. One of twelve [total]. …

[Bon]nie No Clyde

Hope you’re not tired of seeing my fat head yet, cuz here goes more pictures 😉 Yet another protective style: This time it’s the same chunky two strand twists from the last hair post, but I’ve pulled them up into a high bun and wrapped a scarf around to hide the frizz add depth and …

Hair it Goes

More protective styling: This here is some chunky two strand twists tucked into a low bun. I did this on the old hair from the last hair photo. Still haven’t washed this junk yet O_o!

Buns, Buns Baby [read to the beat of Ice, Ice, Baby]

So one thing I haven’t been failing at [praise] is protective styling. Here you’ll see that I have 2 flat twists wrapped into a low sock bun. It’s a little frizzy, but I didn’t mean for it to be extremely neat. Just something quick that I threw together that morning. Ask me how!

When Going Green Goes Wrong

So… about 2 weeks ago I mentioned that I was gonna try to do a smoothie diet for about 3 weeks long (the rest of September). This was to consist of primarily green smoothies, fruits and vegetables. Well, as you can see I’m talking in past tense and not present, so no, I’m no longer …

[Disney] Pocahontas Love

If you’ve never watched [Disney] Pocahontas, you won’t understand me and I highly recommend that you go watch it. I promise you’ll get into it and even better, know what the heck I’m talking about. Now, how many of you women love like [Disney] Pocahontas? She was the definition of a true “ride or die”. …

Flat Twist Shawty

So I’m trying to do protective styles for the rest of the month. Below I have flat twists wrapped into a low bun. Real simple, the part that took the longest was probably de-tangling after co-washing. Post questions if you have them! Especially if you want to know what products I used and the specifics …

Can I Try it Before I Buy it?

This goes out to all you jackasses guys who feel like you need to “test drive” before you “purchase”. This is not to suggest that women are items waiting to be purchased before usage, but rather a metaphor to emphasize the ridiculousness of the idea that one must “try it before I buy it” in …

“BUN”saaaiiiiiiiii

I’m trying more protective styles, so today I did a sock bun. It came out nicely 🙂 I usually wear my hair out, so here’s to protected ends *clap clap bravo*

Go Green

I want to try something different. For those of you that know me, you know that I’ve tried a lot of the diets/detoxes in the past. Well, it’s post-lots of summer alcoholic drinking a new season and I’m ready to try to center my body again. My last detox of choice was a juice fast, …

Today:

Hey. Don’t ever let somebody tell you… You can’t do something. Not even me. Alright? You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period. –Will Smith “Pursuit of Happyness” Yo, This is probably one of …
