The Castor Oil Challenge

So being the obsessed natural that I am, I joined multiple Facebook Groups about being natural. Well lately, everyone has been talking about this Castor Oil Challenge on there. I wasn’t interested at first until I started reading about it. Starting September 1st until December 1st you have to use Castor Oil of any type…

CurlKit: My New Obsession

Lately I have been really lucky and winning a lot of contests. I have won a free photo book from Shutterfly that came with 50 free picture prints because I was a new member. I won an adorable gold and red chain bracelet from Shop21 (Up and coming boutique) and a few other small things….

My Second Twist-Out Attempt

Instead of making a blog post, I decided to post a picture. I am currently at the hospital awaiting the arrival of my nephew and my “lovely” sister is getting aggravated by everything.

My Hair Transition

“Our deepest fe…

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of…

The Head-Wrap

I am learning to love my little afro, but I want something different. So I am trying head wraps, scarves and turbans. At first I was thinking, “I am not stylish enough for this, my style is not bohemian.” Then I tied one together and threw on some copper lipstick and I fell in love….
