A few weeks ago I decided to try something new with good ole Toni. I washed with Anita grants shampoo bar (its oh so lovely review coming soon).  Then I did medium coils which didn't really stay.
Afterwards I used miss Jessie's curling pudding and then made it sit over night. Unfortunately the results were poor. But I decided I would share...

Side note: misses Jessie's curling pudding is great!

Once I learn how to coils properly perhaps it will come out better but for now we will stick with side puffs.

Today's package that arrived came to accompany my juicy couture bracelet that I received for Christmas from a dear friend.
Of course you are supposed to build your bracelet with charms for special occasions I believe so being the big spender that  I am *hangs head in shame,* I wasted no time and purchased a charm. The first charm to grace my bracelet is this diamond (doubt they are real) poked strawberry. The reason...well there are so many but a friend of mine said it was the closet thing that matched my personality. I think she is right...strawberries are indeed the best, although its not my favorite fruit...go figure lol.

And for those of you who are wondering why I didn't just get a Pandora then you obviously you don't know me... Mainstream thumbs down lol

I have tried 6months ago to do a straight weave without the hassle of tracks but it was a total fail. Luckily one of my youtube subscribers informed me that I tried it with the wrong type of hair. Low and behold she was so correct. The style that I have below lasted me a good 3-4 weeks. I just got extremely lazy with maintenance. But when I say it was so easy to install even a stuffed animal could do it! 0_o or not... but you get the point. My mini tutorial is bellow!

So there are Christians in the club? Does that sound right to you?...At first I was really skeptical about the song "in da Club' by Canton Jones, which is censored sometimes for some reason, but the message behind it after his explanation was really touching. For those of you who don't know, Mr. Jones is a Christian artist who has an upcoming album called 'Dominionaire'. Although i have never listened to the album in its entirety I do believe that he has a passion for what it is he is trying to promote...that being Dominion over all with the power of Christ. Below is his explanation of what exactly his song represents.

Life throws us curve balls sometimes and in this life we never know which way to dodge. So I have decided to create a bucket list for myself. For those of you who don’t know what a ‘bucket list’ is, then let me explain.  A bucket list contains a list of things that you desire to do or achieve before you “kick the bucket”, or die so to speak. Now most times people choose to create this list when they know they are on their way out but I think it shouldn’t be something we choose to do later on in life but why not when we have the chance.

So here is my Bucket list in no particular order. Some things I have achieved and note that the list is continuously growing.

For some reason I feel as if this is  what advertisers call  a viral advertising stunt by Essence, for the simple fact that Essences knows YouTube viewers and Natural hair gurus will prepare a rebuttal to their statements. With that being said, Congratulations Essences because low and behold I am one of the many millions who is yet again mentioning your magazine!
All I can say is that I grew up on YouTube meaning my journey would have been nothing without the wonderful ladies out there who contributed their time and experiences on their hair .
Below is a discussion video AfricanExport, whom by the way is the BEST, put together about the ordeal.
