Hi All

So I had a great Thanksgiving! I ate at my family's house then at my bf's family's house, and honestly it was a lot of fun! Then after 8 hours of eating and spending time with our families, we went out to a friends house and partied and played on the wii and played drinking games and had a great time!

Normally I'd be out shopping today but this year has been financial hell and I just couldnt see myself out there in the madness!

I will update later with some good stuff

Bey Bey Beyonce

OMG I know I was leery about purchasing her CD, but I am glad I have it now! I am in love with it. Granted there are some songs I could go without, as with most CDs, in general I am feeling her new style!
I got a full dose of Bey today, on top of blasting her CD all day. She was a guest on the Tyra show today and I was pleasantly surprised she seemed more personable! Then my lovely cousin, the creator of, gave me more Bey by posting the video of her on the Ellen show! She is more open in intervews, more playful, and finally claiming her man! I am really feeling Bey right now!

Turkey Day

These are the dishes I will be preparing tomorrow! I have a busy day ahead of me! I am going to my grandmother's house for dinner, then to my baby's aunts house for more dinner! I just got don ecutting up the greens and yams to help lighten the load for the morning cooking! I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving!

My hair is dry!

Ok so my hair is really not feeling the cold weather so tonight I whipped up a overnite DC which consisted of:
cholesterol, honey, aussie moist, evoo!

I will let you lovely ladies know how it turns out!

My hair doesnt seem to stay moist when i airdry with the flexi rods so i will revert to incorporating some form of direct heat in my hair til I figure things out!

I will air dry 100% then flat iron or airdry 80% then blowdry and moisturize! We will see how this goes

Hey lovies!
Sorry I haven't updated in a while! I was on time constraints some days and then had an internet issue the other days!

My weekend was great. I went to visit my bff and her hubby and their son (my god child)! My bf had a minor surgery done to his eye but he is okay! My godson is amazing and smart and cute and loving and oooh how his aunty (me) loves to spoil him! So after my little angel went to bed, my bf and our 2 friends stayed up and had drinks and grow folks convo and just a lot of fun!

As for my hair, I did another flexi rod set and this time it turned out even better! I bought some DCs at Sallys and a new shower comb! I will make a new post full of pictures in a second!

Weekend Over

I had a great night with my hunny last night! It was just what we needed to keep things in perspective. Unfortunately I have to work today and so my weekend has officially ended! My curls were punished from all of our fun last night and the rain so I have some flexis in now to preserve the look til my next wash day!

Love to have fun

Ok so I had plans tonight but it got washed out....

so I decided to get some crab legs and drinks and party with my baby!
crab legs, tequila, bacardi, watever......we kno how to have fun regardless....Lata Lovies...enjoy ur night

How do you let go?

No matter how old you are or what kind of person you are, it is guaranteed that many people have come and gone in your life. Some by choice, some by death, some you regret, some still on your mind. Well today I wonder how you let go.

Today is my ex-best friend's birthday! We met my freshman year in college and became inseperable. She introduced me to my current best friend, who happens to be her cousin. We did everything together and I felt like she knew me better than anyone. She got a boyfriend and didn't know how to handle still being a friend to me so I moved on. We made up a few months later and things fell back on track. We lived in the same house at that point and had some of the same classes. She started slacking in school and lying to her parents and expected me to lie to them too. At that point I was focused on school and had just met my current boyfriend and I couldn't go on pretending everything was okay. The final straw was the night we went to a party and got drunk and she left me to walk home alone for some random dude and one of her little cousins who she doesnt like. I was drunk and so was she and we had a huge blowout. We stopped talking and I moved out. She knew she could call me when she needed to and I the same but bff's wasn't what we were at the time. She moved on and found new bffs and I felt hurt and just angry b/c I saw what she was becoming. She was pining after a man who didn't want her, friends with girls she said she didn't like since I have known her, drinking all the time, lying aobut still being enrolled in college and her parents were oblivious to it. I called her one day just to talkk and we decided to meet up for dinner. We made up and started talking on the regular again, but not like before. She invited me to a house party with her new bffs and I went along with my bf and my bff (her cousin). We had a great time and things seemed to be going okay.

One day a few weeks later she got really sick and she needed money for a prescription, $150 to be exact. Although we weren't that close anymore I still had mad love for her and to help keep her healthy, I lent her the money because at the time I had it. She promised to give it back in 2 weeks and I took her word for it!

Well needless to say, she lied. I tried calling her after that and suddenly she had no phone. I found out 3 weeks later she got into a motorcycle accident (riding iwht some fool she didn't know) and suffered really bad burns to her leg. I called her friend to get in touch with her and basically let her know if something like this happened she should have called me, I would've been there for her. Anyway, after that she stayed MIA and I neer saw her or my money again. There is a lot of drama in between there but that is the end result.

Today is her birthday and there is a part of me that will always love her and one day I actually cried b/c I felt bad about how things turned out and my hubby told me not to b/c in the end she wasn't a real friend, but still it is hard.

So anyway, this all brings me to the question...
How do you let go of a loved one? Do you have to let go? Is it normal to always care?

*Happy Birthday Chica* if you happen to read this! I still have love for you but you can never undo what you have done.

New Style. Heat Break

My lovely hair friends on BHM advised me that although I want to wash 2x a week I definitely shouldn't be using my blow dryer and flat iron as much. Now although I already knew this, I haaaate sitting under a dryer. Anywho, today I decided to give flexi rods a try and see how I liked the style! So far I like it. It is kinda tight (the curls) right now but I hope they will loosen up by tomorrow. I will rock this style til my next wash day, Tuesday, and I will most likely do a rollerset and rock the straight look!

Forgive and Forget

So we have all heard the phrase "forgive and forget," sounds simple right? Well, in my personal experience, it is easy to forgive but not to forget. It is to be expected that a person will never forget what has happened, but some people can't even learn to forgive.

I have forgiven many people in my life for various reasons, but I have never forgotten how they have wronged me. My biggest flaw though, is not only do I not forget, sometimes I do not let go of the issue and the pain that came along with it. In relationships, this flaw can be dangerous, whether it be a friend or lover.

Today I had a huge fight with my boyfriend and I brought up an issue from our past that should have been "dead." We had been over it a million times and I forgave him for what happened and promised we wouldn't go through this again, but in a moment of anger I just couldn't leave it alone. When I saw the pain and anger in his face, I felt such a sense of guilt. We talked things out and everything is okay but I learned that in order to truly move forward in life, the past must stay in the past.

When you say you forgive someone, mean it. It doesn't mean you forget what happened, but you should just learn from it and move forward.

Just wanted to share my little bit of wisdom....Lata Lovies!

my hair obsession!

So as you can see normally I wear my hair down and i love it, but my hair is at a fragile length now. I have a few factors against me right now that can keep me from attaining my goal of APL (arm pit length) by March:
1. It is cold out and I have to keep my ends, the oldest part of the hair, more moisturized
2. Due to the cold I am forcedd to wear a jacket, one of which is a peacoat which can eat away at my nape and cause my ends to break! For that i wear a scarf!
3. The amount of heat I use in my usual regimen can deter my growth!
I will be trying a new heat free regimen this weekend, curls with perm rods! Also I will try to wear my hair in updo styles more often, like pictured above!
I will post pics of any new styles I try!

Losing wieght is so hard sometimes. I lost 5 lbs but my weight keeps fluctuating! I need to be more consistent with my eating habits and with exercise! My hubby is into weight lifting and he eats so much, so needless to say losing weight is difficult! Oh well, I will just keep staying focused!

Just Another Weekend

Hi everybody! So Friday and Saturday are my days off this week, and my how time flies! I relaxed my hair yesterday then chilled til about 10. Then I went to go see Saw V with my hubby and our 2 of our best friends. Surprisingly, my SO and his friend wanted to see it, while my bff and I just tagged along, but I ended up liking the movie! With an ending like it had, there will definitely be another Saw (and this one better be the last because they are overdoing it now).
Today, it is rainy out here. I took a little trip to Walmart and got some random goods, and of course I couldn't pass the hair and make-up aisles. I bought 2 Mascaras and 4 hair candies (2 claws and 2 headbands). I was trying to buy some NTM (Neutrogena triple Moisture) for a DC (deep condition) but my lovely boyfriend said I have too much hair stuff already and practically pushed me out of the aisle...LMAO! Anyway, I don't know what to do with my hair for the rest of the day other than keep it in a wrap in this scarf because it is rainy and I just feel like bumming it today! Maybe I will find something to do later tonight! BBL with pictures!

I finally got to relax my hair today!
I used Mizani Butter Blends Rhelaxer
for coarse/resistant hair.
So far so good!
I thoroughly based my scalp with summit
then applied the relaxer
Then I rinsed it out and sat for 5 minutes
w/aphogee 2 min reconstrutor in my hair
to help normalize the ph balance
Then I rinsed 3 times with a neutralizing poo
(let it sit 2-3 minutes before rinsing)
I deep conditioned with Elasta QP DPR-11
mixed with ORS replenish pak!
The above pic is my finished look! I sprayed my wet hait with aphogee green tea leave-in and elasta qp h-two then used a dime size amount of chi silk infusion. I let my hair air dry for 30 minutes then blow dried the rest! After that i flat iroed with my FHI and I love the result!
I definitely give the mizani 5 stars! My hair has body and bounce and feels oh so soft!

Hair Love

I absolutely love this look on Raven!
If my hair has enough length, I would love to try this look!
Also I plan on getting my hair dyed again in the summer and this color is lovely!
Anyway, this is just some pretty hair I wanted to share with everyone!

The Master Cleanse!

I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to do a cleanse. I wanted to rid my body of toxins, and it didn't hurt that I could drop a few pounds in the process!

Yesterday I went out and bought all the things I needed to start (pictured above), and began my cleanse! I will post my day-by-day experience with this cleanse!

11/5/08--I had about 4 glasses of lemonade for the day! The lemonade itself is pretty good but that added kick of cayenne pepper throws the taste off. On my way home from work, my insensitive boyfriend asked me to stop at McDonalds and get him some nuggets and fries! It was the ultimate test of will power not to eat a single item, or even just lick the salt off of one frie! LOL. Anyway, later that night I drank my lax tea, Smoothe Move. It was bland and tastely less but left my mouth with a dry, yuck feeling! My tummy felt upset so I went to bed

11/6/08--It is day 2 on the cleanse and I had to start my morning off with the tea. I don't feel hungry at all which is good! I am trying to focus on other things to keep my mind off of craving certain foods. Hopefully this will get easier each day!

**I may have to abort this madness! It more a matter of will power than actual hunger. All i smell all day is FOOD, all i think about is FOOD....geez feed me!

A Few Random Things

First and is my baby cousin's birthday! She is now 13...lawd i am getting old! I have a special bond with her out of my many cousins b/c i have been around her since birth! I love her to death

Also, lately a few people I know have had relationship problems and that leaves me to wonder....
1. Is love always enough to keep it together?
2. Since we all know communication is key, why don't people in relationships communicate sometimes?
3. And lastly,a word of advice...we all trust our friends (if we truly call them friends), but somethings are meant to stay between you and your significant other only. Not because friends cannot be trusted, but only you and your SO know the FULL truth about th relationship. Sometimes the answers lie within you!

Next is a blah hair day...still in braids which I am now forced to wear in a bun because I took out the middle. LOL.

Off to do some errands...I will update more later
