High Bun

064 So…….I’m super excited because I am finally able to get my hair in a ponytail! I was struggling with this hair on Sunday, yall. I washed & conditioned it….easy. But, I was trying to do some type of updo thingy, and could not braid the back of my own hair for the style. I got so frustrated that I almost cried (I know, TMI). But sometimes, you just get like that when things aren’t Continue reading

Paying it Forward

Just a few things you probably don’t know about me…….. 2012-11-18 001 320

I always try to be nice to people. I strive to be kind-hearted, and treat people the way I want to be treated. Anytime I’m around people, I always try to smile & look approachable. If I see an elderly person or a mother with kids struggling to get their groceries in the car, I always try to help. I try to remain polite & respectful to anyone I’m around. It just seems like the nicer you are, that feeling radiates, and people you’re around start to act the same. I love doing random acts of kindness. It  makes me feel so much better inside. This  year, I plan to do so much more in my community. I’ve wanted to feed the homeless for years, but never followed through with my plans. Giving back doesn’t necessarily mean giving money. Time is so much more valuable. Whether that means mentoring a troubled teenager or spending time at nursing homes with people whose family doesn’t visit them. I feel that I’ve been blessed so much that there is no excuse not to give back & pay it forward.

2013-01-27 001 020 Hey Loves!

I’m so honored that she asked me to help her spread the word about her company. What I love Continue reading

These Boots Weren’t Made for Walking

2012-12-30 003 070Let me tell you what I hate. I hate when  you buy a pair of over the knee boots & they fit perfectly in the store. Well, when you decide to wear them, they still look good on you. As the day progresses, you notice that you have to keep pulling & tugging on them to keep them up.  At this point, you’re really really frustrated because they didn’t Continue reading

Red, White, Blue

Hey Loves! Hope all is well. I had such a relaxing New Year. I even got up & cooked the “traditional” New Year’s menu, which I rarely do. I also don’t make New Year’s resolutions. Why should I wait until the new year to start setting goals for myself? I set them all year long. I strive to do better every day.

I have been getting a lot of questions about my hair routine. Honestly, I haven’t developed one yet. Is that bad? Most of the time, my hair is a wash & go. I just can’t seem to get a routine down pat. Continue reading

A Little Sparkle


Hey Loves! How was your weekend? Mine was ok. I didn’t do anything. My hours at work are so crazy, I slept in most of Saturday. I can’t complain though, cause the money is great! That means more shopping, right? Speaking of shopping, I have been on a boot craze lately. I think I’ve gotten like 6 pairs in the last 2-3 weeks. I’ve been meaning to film a haul Continue reading
