Loc Journey

I started my loc journey on October 4, 2017




I've always wanted locs.  For years I've stated that I would wait until I turned 40. I'm a few years shy of that age so why not get started now! πŸ˜‚ I will set another 40 yr old goal. 

If you are subscribed to my YouTube channel then you know that I love my loose natural hair. I've tried so many styles! Feel to watch my videos! 

Both loose hair and locs require maintenance, but for me loose hair requires more.

Don't quote me! I just started this journey! 

So far, I have been enjoying spritzing my hair with water and only applying extra virgin olive oil. 


I've heard spritzing with water is both good and bad. πŸ€” I guess I will find out lol. 


My loose natural hair makes me want to try and keep up with the latest style and to be honest I'm getting older and I'm not here for it πŸ˜‚ There you have it!

I'm on a new journey

Over the Knee Boots

Let's take it back to when and where I found my 1st pair!!!!!

Vlogging ?


Back in 2010 I started making vlogs documenting my family. For me it was natural. I love capturing moments through the lens.  Now it's 2017 and  vlogs are watched more than ever!  

(Click to watch my Weekend Vlog)




Why do I vlog

In my early YouTube years, I made vlogs so my family and friends afar could see updates on my family and hair. To this day, this is still a great way for them to keep up.

I love to capture moments of my life. So for me YouTube is storage lol. I don't have enough storage for moments of my life in my phone or memory card. Never go away YouTube lol.

I also like to put positive energy out to others. I want to also be an example to other women and men who are facing relationship issues or divorce and show that life goes on


Keep living , laughing and loving! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

More vlogs to come!

Keyshia Cole Talks Custody : KCC thoughts

Celebrity or not custody is no joke.  I love me some Keyshia Cole and Daniel "Boobie" however, my loyalty is with Keyshia  Ha! I'm a fan of KC.  Hey I'm loyal lol. 

Times have changed and normally a mother would have full custody. However now fathers are seeking custody. Some seek because they truly want to spend quality time with their children and then their are the ones who do it for financial reasons i.e to lower child support or eliminate child support period.  Keyshia is very open about her divorce and process. In the video below she talks about her custody battle with Daniel "Boobie" on the Real and I must say she did it respectfully. 

          (Click WATCH on YouTube) 

How To Make Slime

Kengkids love to make slime!  I enjoy being involved in the process. I love how they come together and spend quality time with each other. They have different personalities, but work together to achieve a project. This gigantic slime required teamwork!

Braid Out on Natural Hair




I love braid outs!

However, I like to style my braid outs on stretched hair. A light blow-out gives me length. Sometimes I desire length and somedays I don't. 



I used my Silverbird hair dryer I purchased last year from Sally Beauty. It's amazing! Yes, a blow dryer can't make a big difference! I learned that the hard way lol. 


The Process: 4 braids on each side with perm rods. 

Results: A beautiful head full of Natural Hair. Relaxed hair can also achieve great braid out results.


What I wore ?


Watch video below! More pics about what I wore coming soon! Share and subscribe to my YouTube channel for more! 



After a full day of humidity here's my results. Fluffy much lol!

How I Color My Hair at Home

So I posted a video sharing how I Color my hair @ home. 

Click here to watch! 




As I stated in the video this is my staple color. It never fails me lol. I think the reason why I don't go to a professional is because I'm scared that I won't be satisfied. However, on Instagram I found a colorist in Atlanta, GA that I would love to visit one day. Until then, I can do the job lol. Moisturizing your hair is key.  Spritz your hair with water, apply a leave-in of your choice and your favorite oil and you will experience a happy Color journey! 

Here's the video of  my 1st experience with color as a natural: It's definitely a throwback, yet one of my most popular videos: 


I uploaded this video  in 2011

Wow! Minus the 2 year break from YouTube I've been making videos for a long time! lol

Have you ever colored your natural hair

My 1st Time Installing Clip-ins


 
(I colored the hair myself)

Ok, so I just fell in love with clip-ins! I was only sent 1 bundle, but I worked with what I had. That's with anything I do in life lol. No worries, Amazing Beauty Hair Extension is sending me more hair to review. 



Hair: Kinky Curly (I actually picked the wrong texture) 
Afro Kinky Coily (4C) is the texture I will review in the future.



Sponsored by Amazing Beauty  Hair Extensions
Fresh out the box ✋🏾


 My Hair texture 4b/4C 

I ended up using Eco "Black Castor Oil" & Flaxseed oil gel for a twist out with the clip-ins.

DIY Emoji Stress Balls

My children wanted to make stress balls. πŸ™ƒ We went to our local Dollar Tree and found emoji balloons and play-doh.  My daughter chose the CraZArt brand and she actually prefers this brand. FYI Dollar Tree  does carry the play-doh brand.  We didn't purchase the petroleum jelly "compare to Vaseline " at the Dollar Tree because we forgot to pick it up on that visit lol. Did my children make these for me ? Haaaaa!

Hope you enjoy the video and now you can make your own stress ball! 🏑😎😊

Ross Find


I love Ross! The staff at my local Ross consider me as a frequent shopper. Ross needs a rewards card. I need points lol. Every dollar I spend I need a reward. Let me email the CEO πŸ˜‚. 






I almost left it at the store, but it was one of a kind. This particular find was only $11.99.
If I see multiples of a item I don't mind leaving without purchasing. If it's the only one I can't risk the item not being available when I come back.
I absolutely adore this jumper. It's free flowing. My grandmother use to wear pants like this and it's why I purchased it. I wanted something comfy, yet not revealing. The colors were perfect. 


(watch the video) showing the print


Do you shop at Ross?

LaToya's Life

I finished this book in 2 days. 

It was a very good read. It kept me intrigued. I couldn't put the book down. It was interesting to read about her childhood/ teenage years. LaToya overcame quite a few obstacles.  Her life was definitely not perfect. I admire her work ethic. Yes, YouTube is work.  Despite what others thought or didn't understand about YouTube; LaToya remained focus. She was able to grow her channel and establish success!  


If you make YouTube videos this book will inspire you! This is definitely a great book for someone who wants to start a channel. LaToya's story will inspire you to cut the camera on and BE YOU! 🎬 

I purchased  my book online, because it was sold out at my local bookstore. 




Great job LaToya! May you continue to grow! πŸ’‹

From one Toya to another! Great job!

NATURAL HAIR: BAD HAIR DAYS








If I had the patience I would grow my hair out, but I don't lol. Months ago,  I mentioned  to YouTuber "Ghana Goddess" that I had this wig and I finally made a video! You can find this wig under $20!  It's worth it! 





  Serious  PoseπŸ™ƒ 



This is my go-to style when I'm having a bad hair day! It takes about 10 minutes to complete the look. I definitely have bad hair days. This half-wig ends that struggle lol.  Half wigs have been my favorite for years. I wore them at the beginning of my natural hair journey and I still love them!

Summer Body vs All Year Body πŸ‘™

Summer began June 21, 2017 and I did not reach my goal. 

How can I reach my goal if I'm not putting in the work lol. I workout at least 2-3 days a week. I struggle with consistency. I eat snacks too! The bad snacks that love my midsection. Sometimes I  just don't feel like working out. Can you relate? I'm a busy mom, but that's no excuse. I follow busier women and they make time to workout and meal prep. I'm satisfied with my year round body. I just want to take it to another level. I'm trying to be comfortable wearing swimwear because one day I want to enter a figure competition. Your "cheeks" are out in those suits. I can say every year, I get more comfortable with my body. 






Swimsuit: Purchased @Ross (Last YEAR)  $10




Natasha Hastings  uploaded her summer time abs video and her ab game was too strong! She's a professional, but so personable. I'm going to give her ab routine a try! So can you! Don't forget to subscribe to her channel. 


I didn't get my summer abs,  but I will take Fall or  Winter abs lol.  I'm going to keep you all updated.

GARNIER WHOLE BLENDS Shampoo and Conditioner


I am not a product junkie, so I actually run out of products lol.  On this impromptu wash day my local bss and Sally's Beauty were closed. I was not in the mood to drive to Walmart or Target, so I went to my local grocery store. 

The Garnier Whole Blends products stood out. It was definitely the packaging. However, when I see products that contain Argan oil I get excited. Argan oil works great with my hair texture. 



Price: 2/$7
 Both products smell amazing! 

Product Talk:

The shampoo is OK. It's not too drying and my hair and scalp felt clean. My kinks only needed a quarter size of this shampoo and my head was full of suds. ✍🏽
 The conditioner is amazing! It made my hair feel so soft and it was very easy to detangle. I often use the conditioner to co-wash. Great results every time! This product gives my kinks a nice shine. I always follow up with my African Pride leave-in and Castor oil.









 Have you tried these products?
