Hello Thursday!

Hello lovely people, as per usual, my schedule is packed, but first chance I get I am doing a video! What do you think, lip care and how to make homemade lip scrub or cleansing hair build-up?

Foundation Makes a Difference

I love my skin and I prefer going bare faced, but on occasion, foundation could really make a difference!

Left side before, right side after!

A Few Years of Loc Growth

Fall 2010 to Fall 2014 (with a few grooming sessions in-between)!

I've lost locks to tension, hormonal hair loss, a couple stints of poor hair routines and crappy hair stylists... but I made it!

Post Christmas Shopping & Epiphanies

Warning this post has a ridiculous number of retail selfies! ☺️

Next year I'm only giving gift cards and saving all of my energy for the post 25th sales! I have such short term memory where retail business is concerned otherwise I would have waited.

(Check out my shopping OOTD)

(I bought a shirt for $15 from Anthropologie, full retail price $118!)

I am so obsessed with her tumblr blog. Everything about Bun & Cheese GIVES ME LIFE! She is a pocket full of positivity!

Hair Selfies

My Locs have been neglected and every evening I've had to re-ti small patches to save my Locs from complete atrophy! It may take me an entire week to complete! But these week long sessions squeezed into my busy schedule will have to do until I find a loctician.

These sessions inspire many hair selfies. Some a little more hilarious as I play around with unsuccessful faux-loc bangs!

Happy Tuesday Updates

Christmas is quickly approaching and though we have not purchased our tree (live trees is a tradition) or put up all our decorations, I can feel the buzz of the holiday season in the air!

Natural Hair Care for Little Girls

I'm not one of those parents that try a million super awesome supper cute kid hair styles with intricate basket weaves and braiding. (More power to you if you do, and if you need inspiration visit here.)

 I just don't have time for that, and my daughter would rather I shave her head than sit through it. What I focus on is hair health; Sophie will rock a puff most days, with the occasional ballerina bun.

 My kids are free, heck they wear jeans to church (something I was raised to believe was a sin), and they are occasionally ashy!

I don't make my girl wear the itchy tulle filled Haitian church dresses similar to those of my sketch youth and I don't risk my girl's edges for a haute hair style. (I have a small spot that has NEVER grown back from tight braids, aka tension alopecia.)

Instead I:

Stay Tuned

Missing in action yet again! Work has been demanding. The kids have been demanding. The husband has been passively demanding (ha). I moved (again) and If I neglect sisterlocked, I am probably neglecting my locs, skin, self... So, I making time for all of the above. More posts on their way!
