Having a little fun with styling and makeup

I haven't styled my hair in a while now due to me being so busy as a hairstylist. Crazy right? While I spending time making others beautiful, I neglect myself. I know I know.... Well the other night I was in the  mood and spent a little time with me

And then I HAD to go into my collection of makeup to satisfy my inner Diva....

I was oh so serious wasn't I? I laugh at myself :D

My Baby is Finally All Natural!!!

Do you remember my post "Looking Out for Our Girls by Eva" ? This was a post about a woman who goes to pick up her daughter from the child's grandmother house and the child's hair is relaxed. Well I had a similar experience. To fast forward, I decided grow the relaxer out of my daughter's hair. It's been about 16 months of talking to my daughter about her hair. Telling her her hair is beautiful, letting her touch and watch my hair grow. Putting her hair in twists, cornrows, extentions, everything. The only thing I left up to her was when I was going to cut the relaxed ends off. Well, MY BABY told me she wanted the ends cut off yesterday and here she is........

All Natural!!!

If it moves you to leave a comment please say something encouraging to my baby who is on her own natural hair journey respectfully.
I'll let her read them for encouragement.

Proud Momma signing off  :)

Happy New Year!!

So in my last post I announced that I had been challenged to get into shape. Well a couple of years ago, I found this website called Sparkpeople.com. and fell in love with it. There I could track my progress and also get great free tips. So I went back there to update my account and link it to facebook. Yes facebook for all of my friends to see. What was I thinking? I don't know, but I did and so now I'm motivated to produce results. I enjoy reading articles and getting recipes there. I understand that getting into shape should be a lifestyle change and not just some temporary diet phase, know what I mean?

I have been on my new journey of the more healthy slender me for 2 weeks now and have lost 14 pounds. I say I'm off to a good start. Yeah, BF knows he's in trouble :)
