  • A few of my favorite things…

    A few of my favorite things…

    I am always thinking about multiple streams of income. Sadly it stops there; a thought. My busy parenting and work schedule doesn’t allow me to give it much more than a mere thought, so I am not there yet, but I’m surely working on it. I checked my Amazon commissions recently and saw a small […]

    15 ways to wear a head scarf from Love Your Tresses

    I fell in love with this video within the first minute! I followed Fiona of Love Your Tresses immediately.

    My first flat iron in almost four years

    You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t cute! I had my hair flat ironed shortly after going natural in 2010 and haven’t gone back to straight hair since. One reason is because it would take too doggone long if I were to attempt it myself. I don’t even blow dry my hair thanks to the time […]

  • Bun-tastic


    This is probably no big deal to most of you but I have a THICK head of hair. I never thought I’d be able to bun without first blow drying my hair. Even when washing my hair and sectioning it off to condition, a solitary ponytail is not an option. It takes too much manpower […]
