Product Reviews

Hair One hair cleanser and conditioner *Dry Scalp Formula*

This sulfate free product is "a new way to cleanse and condition hair."

I kept hearing rave reviews about this product and one day I was reading Traycee's review at

So last weekend when I was Sally's, I decided to finally pick it up! Well ladies, I must say, it was worth it and all the reviews were on point! I used it exactly as the directions said and it worked wonders on my hair. The tea tree oil really made my scalp tingle and feel clean, yet the product was softening my hair like any other conditioner, at the same time! My scalp was extrememly clean by the end of the wash and honestly, I don't see myself using real shampoo other than once a month to clarify.

I would definitely recommend this product to everyone! I will be purchasing more of this in all the different formulas!

I am still feeling out my EVCO and will do a review in another week, but so far so good.

Heat Free yet cute

So for a while I was battling my hair! I wanted the straight, bouncy wrap and the sexy look it gave me, yet didnt want to put my hair through the torture! Whenever I would go weeks without heat, I would only rock a banana clip! I recently discovered the bantu knot out! OMG this style is a life saver! I co-washed, then airdryed, then moisturized with mango butter and sealed with cocnut oil, then did a two strand twist and made bantu knots! In the morning, I untwisted them and BAN, fabulous curls! I will make a list of my mini haul purchases from this weekend!

Mini Product Haul!

Hi all! So after viewing this informative post ( ) by the lovely Sunshyne, I had to go out and make a few purchases!

My hair has been shedding alot lately and no matter what I do, whether its no heat for 2 weeks or 2 DCs weekly or cowashing every other day, it sheds! I have been doing protein treatments regularly and nothing has changed! I watched the video in the above link and remembered that I kept saying I was gonna buy some coconut oil, so today I finally did!

I am going to try the DC with coconut oil, with some JBCO on my edges and some argan oil on my ends and see if this helps!

I will post pics of all the products I bought today later!

Fantasia + Reality Show= MESSY and I love it

Okay so I voted for Fantasia when she was on American Idol! I loved her voice and then something went left! Fantasia went messy mode but I still love her! Now that she has a reality show coming in January, I will be glued to the screen to watch her live "real" life! Tune in for the phuckery!

Friday, December 4, 2009

Finally the weekend!

So this has been the longest week ever! I am super excited to have the next 2 days off! Tomorrow the plan is to get a few things done and then treat myself to a mani n pedi and eyebrow threading! I may even do my hair, LOL!

I am trying to avoid heat so I think that next week I will get senegalese twists to keep my hands out of my hair for awhile, courtesy of the BF as an early Christmas gift! I love him!

I am dreading doing more Christmas shopping, partially because I always find away to spend more money on myself! But alas, I must get some shopping done, especially for the kids in my life!

The Answer....Is back in Philly

My husband, in my head, is back! This is just the boost that Philly needed! i haven't been interested in a Sixer's game since my man left and now he is BIZAAAAAAAAAAACK! The Sixer's needed a boost, some more talent, and some inspiration! Ticket sales have been low and so has the morale of the locals and in one game, Allen Iverson will bring it all back!


Back in Business

OMG ya'll! I am back in business...I just got my brand new laptop, a SONY VAIO! I will be back to blogging about my life and things that are important to me from here on out!

Wednesday, November 25, 2009


Hi everyone, long time no blog! I have decided to just update from work. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I just want to express the things that I am thankful for!

I am thankful for another year of life!
I am thankful for the man in my life who loves me unconditionally
I am thankful for my family and friends, aka other family!
I am thankful for my godchildren who I love like my own
I am thankful for every opportunity I get to make an impression on someone's life

Tuesday, October 20, 2009


I am so sorry I have been MIA, i need a new laptop desperately bc doing everything via my blackberry is no longer productive, ugh!

Life is okay, my job is good, my bf is in good spirits, I have 2 godchildren on the way and I am enjoying my youth!

Green tea...I'm on it....Lets see

About Green Tea and Weight Loss - The No-Nonsense Truth
Consider the following - One pound of fat (.45 kg) is equivalent to approximately 3500 calories. Whether using green tea for weight loss or any other method, in order to lose one pound of fat over the period of a week, a person must maintain a calorie deficit of 3500 below their normal "set point", that "set point" being the amount of calories consumed in one's diet where a person neither loses nor gains fat. This calorie deficit can come through the modification of diet, through exercise, or a through a combination of both. In the case of a pound per week weight loss, that works out to a needed calorie deficit of 500 calories per day.

Research by Japanese and other researchers(1) suggest that if the average person were to drink five cups of green tea a day, they would burn an extra 70 to 80 extra calories through an effect known as thermogenesis - the process of heat production in organisms. While much of the thermogenesis effect in green tea is derived from caffeine, studies also suggest(2) that thermogenesis in green tea occurs to some degree beyond its caffeine content from epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG.)

Regardless, 70-80 calories per day does not quite come close to the 500 calorie deficit needed per day to lose a pound a week, and for sure it's nowhere close to the calorie deficit needed to lose "inches per week" from one's waistline as some green tea web sites would have consumers believe. According to the research, if a person were to change nothing outside of adding five cups of green tea to their diet per day, then over the course of 43 days one could expect to lose 1 pound. Over the period of one year, one could expect a loss of about 8 pounds. Yes, there is some correlation between green tea and weight loss, unfortunately it's not on the level many would have you believe.

Clearly, drinking green tea alone is not going to be satisfactory for significant weight loss. Still, green tea can still be quite useful as a weight loss aid. The extra 80 calories per day can be just what a person needs to tip the scale from a calorie surplus to a calorie deficit, especially when following a balanced nutrition and exercise regime.

Something That Really Works...

If you are serious about losing weight, even though you should not expect the pounds to melt off as some will claim, we still definitely do recommend green tea as a complement to a sound nutrition and exercise regime, not only for the slight metabolism boost it will give you, but more importantly for the many other documented health benefits.

That said, in case you have not yet had the fortune to come across a *real*, no-nonsense weight loss program that will work for just about *anyone*, one that will put you back in control of things once and for all, one that *will* work, here is one we highly endorse. Why this program? The 45 year old webmaster of this site has personally lost and kept off 35 pounds of fat since May 1st, 2007 by following this no-gimmick system and has never felt better! You may freely contact him directly if you have any questions about it. Change your life today!

Tattoo for Mommy and Me

July 16, 2009 marked the 11 year anniversary of my mother's death. She was the most important person in my life and for a long time I just wanted something to express my eternal love for her and honor her memory.

On thursday 7-16-09, I got a tattoo on my thigh of a water lily aka lotus, (one of ) the flower for the month of july. At first I wasnt fond of getting it on my thigh bc it seemed like an inappropriate type spot, like maybe i'd put a boy toys name or something there, but due to the fact that i work in a professional environment, I have to becareful of where i place my body art.

The flower is the beginning of a piece that will be dedicated to those that I love. July is the month of my birth and the month of my mommys death so it was fitting, in december i will get the flower for the month of her birth, then in the future if I live for the passing of my grandmother and aunt/mom figure, i will honor them with their birth month flowers as well.

I love tattoos and i think that a flower is a great symbol of life and death and a beautiful way to show my love to the the ppl i love!

Hair Break!

I am soooooooooooooooooooo happy to finally give my hair a break!

I got kinky twists and I will def post pics tomorro!

Sunday, May 3, 2009


a feeling
a curse
a sign

....Can make or break any relaionship

....Can be the root of all evil

Something we all have

Something we CAN control

Something we cannot control

Insecurity can be instilled in the most CONFIDENT person. Once it grabs hold of you, it can slowly poison the relationships you love the most.

This has been my weakness and after a long talk with my boyfriend last night, I really am making a big effort to cleanse my self of this feeling. I am not too much of a jealous type and I am not controlling but sometimes, I get a feeling of insecurity that makes me question things when there is no reason to!

This is my newest goal, and day by day it gets easier to attain!

Don't be mad at me!

Ok lovies, once again I have to apologize for my absence!

Work---Work is fun and i love it but it is also stressful. My 10 week training, of which i have 3 more to go, is pass or fail so I have to stay focused. My commute to work is 40 minutes and so i have 10 hour days for the most part and by time I get home, I am just dead! Now, due to call volume, we will be actually answering calls on Mondays on mandatory overtime, 8-6, so with my commute i will be up by 6 and home by 7pm at the latest, so that is 13 hours!!!!! The pay is great so I'm fine with it all!

Home life---Things are great at home. I miss my boo with the longer days but he makes sure he is focused on me when I get home. He goes jogging with me at night so that is a good time as well!

Health---I am jogging again now that the daylight last longer! I am determined to shed these pounds. I am getting my lean cuisine back into my diet! I am focused and I plan to stay that way. My bf still has eye issues, but its stable for now til surgery time!

All in all, everything is ok and I am taking life day by day!

Love and Faith

I just want to share some good news with you all!

For those who know me personally, you all know my boyfriend got injured on his job last year and the past 8 months have been very hard for us!

I prayed and prayed and decided that 2009 would be our year! On January 5, 2009, I randomly decided to apply for a new job. There is nothing wrong with mu old one but I wanted an opportunity for more money. By the end of the month, I got a call saying I got the job!

Now, the job presented a lot of new issues. For one, there is a longer commute, and secondly, they hire everyone as temporary to permanent, and that scares me! I decided to go ahead and take the chance and simply apply myself because I know I will be successful! The main issue though, was that my bf was stilling going back and forth to the doctors and things weren;t really looking up. With a new job, I just can't be taking off time all willy nilly!

Well today we went to his doctor and found out that his eye has stabilized and we can take a break before moving on to the next phase: reconstructive surgery! We also found out that with this surgery, he may get some eyesight back in that eye! I am so happy for him, you all have no idea

I love this man and he is my future and all this has only made us stronger! Tonight we went out to dinner to celebrate the good news and my new job!

Love and faith has held me above water in 2009 so far and I hope it continues to go that way!

My 100th post!!!!!

Hi guys! This is my 100th post and I am so excited! It is snowing again, which is fine because I am off tomorrow, but too bad I have to go with my BF to the eye doc!

Today I gave my resignation to my main manager! He was very supportive and made this transition easier! My coworkers were all excited for me as well!

I don't really have much to say right now but whatev, its my 100th post and it can be as random and pointless as I want it to be

Monday, February 2, 2009

Me Day!

Ok guys, I am slightly behind on posting but I have a lot to share!

Saturday, I went to spend the day with my godson! Today is his 3rd birthday and my how time flies! I looooooooooooooooooove this little boy with all my heart and he is truly a blessing. He is in the cutest stage right now! I walked in and he says, "hi aunt Jammie, I love you soooooooooooooo much" then when I was leaving he was running around biting his mom's butt, LMAO! I just can't get enough of him!

Yesterday, I spoke with my supervisor and I gave her my notice! I was really sad when I told her and we went over the pros and cons of leaving! She is a great erson and I am happy we talked. Thursday is my last day at work, a bittersweet moment.

Today I took the day off because I have time to use before I leave my job! I had a dentist appoitment and I left there pretty annoyed. First off, when i called they told me my copay was only $25! I got there and the dental assistant took some xrays and then the dentist came in and told me what I need to schedule to be done! Well when i left that heffa at the front desk said I had to pay $62 for the visit....i say huh lady what?!?! Whatever I paid that ish! then the dentist says i need to get a filling but it could possibly require a root canal! Needless to say thatish is expensive as hell so I am NOT HAPPY! I will think about it tho!

Have no fear, I made myself feel better! I went to Old Navy and got 3 shirts for $13, then went to DSW to look at shoes. I hate that store though because OMG its too big so I get overwhelmed looking for shoes and also they are quite pricey. I then did a follow up on my new job, then went to visit my BFF at her job (where I used to work a few years ago so I know everybody in there). After all that I went to the nail salon. I got a manicure and pedicure and got my brows neatened up!

I am sooooooooooo exhausted, so now it is nap time! I will take pics of the nails and toes later! I have to go jogging in a bit and then I am shopping for some more work clothes!

Mini Haul Today

Hey hey ladies!

Today I made a few purchases!

First, I went to Old Navy! I bought my god son a bunch of outfits for his b-day (Monday) and I got myself some cute lounge pants to work out in!

Then, off to MAC! The girl who did the looks I requested wasn't really that good so I didn't buy any of the eye shadows she tried on me, but I did buy a new bottle of Sutdio Fix in NW47 (i was running low), a new blush that can double as an eye shadow (I will post pics later of the color) , and a brow liner that I will be returning b/c the chances of me using it are slim to none but I figured I would get it b/c she tried so hard!

Lastly, I bought a new product by got2b called Guardian Angel 425 degrees F heat protect and flatten! I will try this tonight after I wash my hair and post results for you all!


So normally Friday is my chill day, but with this new job i have sooooo much to do! I have all these forms to fill out, had to go for a drug test, need to go shopping, etc! I loooooooooooooooooooove Fridays regardless so whoot whoot. Enjoy your day fellow bloggers!

I am Taking a Chance and Taking the Job!!!!

I had a lot of decisions to make in regards to taking this job! I thought on it, got opinions from my closest friends, and most importantly, I prayed on it.

I decided that although it is taking a risk and losing the job security I have become accustomed, God would not put anything in my path that I could not handle! I hope that I am making the right decision, but I cannot live my life wondering "what if I had taken that job."

On a beauty note, I will be going to MAC this weekend to have them create an easy smokey eye look for me, as well as a neutral eye! I want to have the option of being simple or drastic when I please so a mini haul is in the near future!

I will also start running again this weekend. It is a priority and its been calling back to the trail so I must answer the calling!

Time for me to go to my job and let them know I will be leaving! I am so nervous and sad about this but I have to do what is best for me and my future!

Taebo Baby

Well, since I know I won't be able to go out and run everyday, i definitely plan on kicking my ow butt into full work out mode somehow!

I am buying this oer the weekend! With taebo plus regular use of my mini trampoline, jump rope, and cardio 2-3x a week, I will drop the weight I want in the time I want

I Played Hooky Today! SNOW DAY!

Ok ya'll, so last night when I left work I had to clean off my car, warm it up, and to make matters worse, the gov't didn't think the snow would stick soooooo...THE ROADS WERE NOT CLEAR! My usual 10 minute drive home from work at midnight, turned to 25 minutes....not cute! Today was so drab and dreary so I decided to stay home (i used personal time so I get paid anyway)

Ummmm this is the second day I couldn't start running due to bad weather so whomp whomp! Its raining now so tomorrow will be icy so again no running for me!

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

hair and make-up update!

Last night I DCed/cowashed with a mixture of Conditioners! I mixed ORS replenish condish, roux porosity mendex, lustrasilk mango cholesterol, and some left over Silk Elements megasilk. I left it on for about an hour or two, then i rinsed out in the shower with cool water and followed up with some Nexxus humectress that i left on for like 5 minutes. My hair was like butter! I put on my leave ins and then I let airdry for a few minutes! Then I blowdried using the round thermal brush i talked about in the previous post.

I must say my hair came out silky smooth with that brush! I loved the final results but I dont think it is something i will use to dry my whole head again! I felt so guilty after using it and also I was worried of damage I may have caused my hair! I think i will only use it to straighten my roots after a rollerset or something!

On to the make-up....I am loving the #168 brush I got from MAC! My makeup seems to last longer during the day and even after my 8 hou shift, it looks like new! Friday I am going to MAC to get some more foundation and I will also be making them do a smokey eye look on me. New Job, New look

Monday, January 26, 2009

Time to start jogging again....oh and these Shoes...

Tomorrow I plan on taking a run! I have to start getting back into running outside for those 2 miles daily! It was a great workout and it gave me time to think! I will go tomorrow right before the doctor visit since I have to up anyway!

These shoes are the bizness! I will be treating myself to them for my new job! They are weird but sexy

I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got the job and I am super excited....only problem is I have a lot to consider and a short amount of time in which to do so!

I am off to work but I will let you all know what I decide....I am leaning heavily to a HELL YES I will take the job!

I need to think on it and pray on it and we will see what the outcome is! I am too young to fear change!

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Mini Haul

I wear foundation daily and something was no longer doing the trick, IDK if it was the 191 brush by MAC that the girl sold me, my sponge applicator, or the foundation so yesterday, i went in and decided i needed an change. I spoke with this lovely man, who had the fiercest eyebrowns, and he told me that I had the right foundation for the coverage I wanted and then he used this wonderful brush to apply my foundation. Let me tell ya'll, I looked like an airbrushed beauty! It really made a difference with how my foundation looked and the coverage that it provided!

Saturday, I also bought some hair products...of course! I got Hawaiian Silky 14-1 to use as a moisturizer and so far so good. It has a light, creamy consistency and it smells amazing! I also got a round thermal brush, kind of like the one pictured below, except the brand is ION. I think I will try this the next time I blow dry, as opposed to using my comb attachment! I also bought a refill for my Silk Elements MegaSilk Moisture Treatment, this stuff is the truth.

Well, thats it for today loves! I will have some more pics tomorrow!

Movie Review....No-No-No-Notorious!

OMG, what a greaaaaaaaat movie! I wasn't a HUUUUUGE fan of Biggie...I liked him and most of his music but because of my age, I wasnt that hype on him! Lemme tell you though, this movie gave me insight to who Biggie the artist and Christopher Wallace the man, was!

I laughed, I rapped along, and I shed a tear! This movie was very well produced and didn;t fail to be informatie, while entertaining! I must also say for the up and coming actors/actresses that were casted for the various roles, they truly did their thing!

This is a must see for anyone out there that was a fan, wants to get to know more about Biggie, or just wants to experience what hip hop was like just a decade ago!

I would advise no young one tho because there was a lot of profanity and some nudity! Some people had kids in there but it truly depends on how you raise your children! Do you want to have to explain certain things? Do you want them to know about an icon? There was a couple with a little girl about 5 years old. She asked a lot of questions! LOL!

Anyway...GO SEE IT!

Tis is how I wore my hair today for my testing for the new job!

This is how I wore my hair on Wednesday! Easy updo!

Hi Ya'll!

So today I went to take some testing for a new job I am hopin to get. The pay is double what I make now, plus some, 100% tuition reimbursement and 100% health coverage with no co-pays! I passed the 1st test and now I have to schedule for another one so wish me luck!

While there, I saw some hair that made me cringe! I wish I had BHM and KISS business cards!

Anywhoo, Tomorrow I am ending my 10 week stretch. I was trying to hold out til the end of the month but my hair is shedding and breaking and because i was underprocessed last time, the line of demarcation is not holdig up well! I will post pics tomorrow after I am done!

I will be using Mizani Butterblends for coarse/resistant hair. I will base my scalp with Summit tonight and again tomorrow before I relax! I am going to dye it black with Bigen, right afterwards and then blowdry!

Tomorrow I will be purchasing a new blow dryer from Sally's! It will be Ionic and ceramic and I hope to get great results!

Product Review and TV Rant

Tonight I tried the Joico K-Pak and let me tell you, the instant it touched my hair I felt a difference! At first when I put it in my hand, it didn't have that creamy consistent look and had a slightly lumpy consistency so I felt like I had been hoodwinked since I didn't buy it at a salon! It had a very nice scent and I could almost smell a slight hint of banana!

I do not know yet if it well help my breakage/shedding/etc but for the initial use, I love it! I hope after my hair is dry and I comb it out, i will see a huge difference!

Now, the TV rant!
AMERICAN IDOL is BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK! Yes, sometimes it seems fake, yes they let losers audition just for laughs, but Lawd I am addicted to it! I will be tuned in faithfully

Nip/Tuck's second episode was tonight! I loooove this show!

Bad Girl's Club is my ish and tonight, the episode was craaaazy! Sometimes I really think "damn, why don'tI get on a damn show?" Oh well

90210, Privileged, The City, Daddy's Girls, etc. OMG the list goes on! Please know that i will rant about these shows frequently

Ok ya'll so my hair is doing well and after flat-ironing it, honestly the sshedding has basically stopped. My hair loves protein and moisture just the same, so i made a lovely purchase to try out a new reconstructor!

Ya'll know i LOVE Aphogee and it will forever remain a staple for me, especially the 2 minute reconstructor, but I decided to try another reconstructor to see how it works so I purchased Joico K-Pak

On the back:
Joico's original intensive protein reconstructor for dry and damaged hair rebuilds and improves the structure of hair. pH 4.5 to 5.5. Contains QUADRAMINE COMPLEX, an exclusive blend of positively charged, low molecular weight and size proteins (MWS 150-2500). This balance of 19 essential amino acids (the building blocks of hair) adheres quickly and effectivelt to ensuremaximum protection and reconstruction from the cuticle to the cortex.

Instructions: apply to damp hair, leave on 5 minutes, rinse!

I will do a review once I try it out!

OK....for starters, today is my little cousin's birthday...she is 17 today! I looove her to death like my little sister, she is the best and I am so pleased with how she is growing up!

On a beauty note, I got my eyebrows done yesterday and i got a manicure! It was so great to finally beautify myself!

I think i will be dusting my ends soon to help with a smoother look. I will probably do it after my relaxer


This is how my hair looked after i flat ironed it on Friday! Its maaaad thick and my roots dont wanna behave but its all good. I'm relaxing it in 3 weeks
