WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
Ok, I am always doing something crazy! I decided at the last minute to go to Miami with my friend Boazmon! Now, for those of you who do not know Boazmon, let me give you some background information.
Boazmon is obsessed with the Miami Heat basketball team. She is even more obsessed with Dwyane Wade. Anyway, Boazmon loves to support her team in any way she can. She also makes sure people who are not that into basketball supports the Heat as well. That is how I am involved.
Anyway, Shanquita talked me into going to Miami to go to the celebration parade for the Miami Heat. We literally went down for one day! I mean, who goes to Miami for one day????
Of course, I must admit, one of my main reasons for going to Miami was to eat some good food! Actually, whenever I go out of town, I only have food on my mind! Anyway, we ended up going to Flanigan's. I had a hamburger that was so big, I couldn't even finish it. I could barely bite it! Shanquita had all kinds of stuff. It was really yummy!
Below are pics from the parade.
I have officially been completely natural for 5 years as of June. I have had many set backs and I am still learning how to take care of my hair. Below is a length check at 5 years. I don't know if I posted it or not, but I cut my hair in February (I think it was February) of this year. I also just cut my hair in the back on Sunday, June 2. Below are before and after pictures.
I decided to flat iron my hair for my cousin's wedding. Instead of blow drying my hair, I decided to set my hair on rollers and sit under the hair dryer. I was hoping it would make my hair more manageable without using the direct heat of a hand-held hair dryer.
The first thing I did was washed and deep conditioned my hair. I used Creme of Nature leave in conditioner to set my hair on the rollers.
This is how my hair turned out after I took out the rollers. It really did not turn out the way I was hoping, but it was decent.
Below is a pic of my hair after I flat ironed it. Unfortunately, I did not take any pics right after I flat ironed it, so the pic below was taken a few hours afterwards. This was taken right before the wedding. I took it down right before I walked in.
Below are pics of the wedding.
