Greetings, all! How was your holiday? I hope you and your loved ones had a safe, enjoyable time. ❤ Our immediate family decided not to meet up in the large, multi-family gatherings we usually have. Instead, each of our families celebrated separately and checked in with one another. Different, but we all still knew we… Continue reading Black Friday Hair & Other: Wish Lists, Recent Purchases, Tweaks to My Hair Regimen, and More
Greetings! This is my first time ever playing with hair color, and this was fun! I purchased the hair color -- Curlsmith's hair makeup in the color ruby -- from Ulta. Have you ever colored your hair? What was your experience? The two videos at the end of this post express my same feelings about… Continue reading Twist Out in Red (Curlsmith’s Temporary Hair Color)
Achia, host of the ALove4Me Extreme Hair Growth Challenge (which runs from May 1, 2019 to July 31, 2019), sent participants assignment #2 (please see below). I thought the assignment was different, unique, and actually pretty effective! I enjoyed completing it, and honestly every time I look at the goal hair that I drew, I… Continue reading [ALove4Me EHGC] Assignment #2: Visualize the Goal
NOTE: Please enjoy the photo slide show at the end of this post. Greetings! 😀 I hope this post finds you well! ❤ So it's been about 5 months since I last posted.

Greeings! I hope this post finds you well! A while back someone on a hair forum created a thread entitled, "If This Hair Journey Were a School." She wrote: What kind of degree would you have? Would you be an A student, B student . . . Would you be a teacher or a student?… Continue reading [Fun] If This Hair Journey Were a School, Would You Be a Student? Teacher? Other? And . . .
Greetings! Here's an update regarding my shift away from digital social media to in-person, face-to-face social interaction. Recent events discussed in this post include a wondrous Meetup.com event at a spa (the massage was DIVINE), our little guy's soccer game (the weather was HEAVENLY), and a relaxing visit to my favoritest (yes favoritest) nail salon.… Continue reading [Social] Meetup Event, Soccer Game, Nail Salon Visit, and Tonight’s Line Dancing Meetup
Today I'm posting about last Sunday -- about spirit and the Word and worship. About joy and gratitude. That's a bit of a change: So far the majority of my blog posts have been about hair. One of the reasons? Besides the obvious reason that my hair demands almost daily attention, it's because I'm loving… Continue reading Last Sunday! (Gratitude, Sermon Notes, and LifeHack Bible Antifragility Excerpt)
I rarely go on Facebook anymore, and I was feeling pretty pleased with myself in terms of how disciplined I felt I was being about it. However, I didn't realize that I had basically replaced the time sink of Facebook with a forum. I gain so much from the forum and the wonderful people there.… Continue reading [Soul] Trading Social Media for Social Meetups
I Just Donated Lots of Products from My 4-Year-Old Hair Products Stash! Win-Win! I found a women's shelter that is requesting gently used black hair products! What?!?? This is awesome. It makes so much sense to pass on sanitary, gently used products to those who need them instead of throwing them away, wasted in the… Continue reading Hair Products Donation and Camille Rose Naturals $10 Apiece Haul
One of the reasons I included a spirit/soul component in my 5-year challenge is that our spiritual and emotional states affect everything. If I'm feeling hopeful and positive and upbeat and energetic, I will work smarter and better and more consistently toward all of my aims. So much feels possible with a good mindset. So… Continue reading Update: Bible Memory Verse App and SiriusXM Radio Channel 128
