Hey!!! We finally got a new camera! We're working really hard to learn the settings and all so I decided to record this quick update and give it a try. :) It'll get better with practice lol!!! Thank you soo much for your support through everything! :)
Sometimes we don't feel like we're #beautiful enough without the "extra." There's nothing wrong with wanting to play around with a little #color here and there for fun...but simplicity is fierce too. ;)

I just fought some serious rain coming back from #Walgreens lol. I found out a few days ago about the Shea Moisture Sale going on at the store, so of course I had to pick up a few items lol. I already knew that I wanted to repurchase the Purification Masque since I ran out of mine about a month ago. As I've mentioned on my product/regimen page, this product has been working great for my hair more now than before. :) I haven't tried the conditioner out before, but have heard great things about it. :)
Both of my boys have really dry skin so I wanted to try another lotion from Shea Moisture. Honestly, I like seeing ingredients that I can understand and pronounce in my products. I'm in a phase where I really want to do better by my family's skin as well as my own. Shea Moisture's products fulfill that desire for me. :) We've never tried two lotions out before, but I #LOVE the Coconut and Hibiscus Body Wash and body lotion (that I now use on my face as a moisturizer in place of my GNC Vitamin C Cream.)
What's your favorite Shea Moisture hair and body product?

Today we spent the day at the #PhiladelphiaZoo! We had such a great time together! We also decided to hit up #FamousDaves for lunch after the long stroll at the zoo. Of course, the men went in lol! How did you spend your day?
Hey! Here's my everyday makeup look! It's a quick and easy way to enhance your natural features. It's also appropriate for just about anything lol. I hope it helps! :D
I finally decided to get a darker shade (Cappuccino 410) of foundation to use with my staple Caramel 400. It definitely helps with the tan I'm quickly acquiring from the approaching summer. I wish I had done this sooner!
BTW, tomorrows vid will be my everyday go to makeup look. (However, I didn't have the extra foundation at the time.) #revlon #colorstay #makeup #skincare
Good Morning!!! God is good! Don’t forget to give Him praise! :D
(KJV) Ephesians chapter 2 verses 8-10
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

There are lots of beautiful textures out there. Remember that yours is one of them. ;)
(For reference, I wanted to post what my hair looks like in natural lighting. I hope it helps!)
What's your signature style? Mine is My stretched wash & go. I love it because it's quick, effortless,unique, & bold. It amazes me that this is my favorite way to wear my hair because growing up, it was never a desire of mine. My, my, how things have changed lol!

Bantu knot outs can be a tricky style to achieve. Sometimes they just don't come out right lol! Too tight, not dry the next day, curls going every which way, and so on. During my journey thus far, I haven't done this style very much but I'm really glad I decided to give it a go once again. I love the way it turned out! It's more curly and less "crimpy" like my usual twistouts. I'm thinking I need to do this style more often to switch things up! Besides, it's really quick and easy to do so why not? :D
Today, I share how I do a dry bantu knot out using Carol's Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey and Darcy's Botanical's Sweet Cocoa Bean Curl Smoothing Cream. I hope this helps!
The other day on Instagram, Facebook Twitter, & Google +, I posted a picture that looked like this:
I wanted to see if anyone could guess what type of style it was especially since the pattern can look similar depending on lots of variables. Well, there were some really great guesses lol! It turns out that whoever guessed bantu knot out was correct! Tomorrow's hair #tutorial will be a dry/damp#bantuknotout! See you there! :D
We're living this life to live again! The ultimate goal is to make it to heaven! So live right, it counts! ;)
(KJV) 1 Thessalonians chapter 4 verses 13-18
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Deep conditioning is an important part of any hair care journey... or at least it should be lol. In my case, I have never been the best with keeping up with my deep conditioning sessions. But alas! That may be changing since I have pretty much no excuse not to do it. Enter, the Hot Head!
The Hot Head is a microwavable deep conditioning cap designed to trap in heat for a better deep conditioning experience. The cap is very unique as it is designed with flaxseeds! (Who knew flaxseeds could have so many uses!)
