Ok, ok, ok… I keep saying this with every post but I’m sorry it took so long to update!
I’ve been so busy, working full time, dealing with the kids, and going back to school. But I will definitely try to update more often. Especially since I’ve decided to focus a little bit on food this time around. When I do have the time (mostly on Wednesdays and Thursdays, my days off work) I like to look up different recipes online and cook them for dinner. Since I usually tweak a recipe because I’m a picky eater, I figured, why not post my tweaked picky eater recipes online? Not that it hasn’t been done before, but even the picky eater websites/blogs have stuff I don’t eat, or recipes that take way too much time. I’ll also try to add references, when available, of the website/blog that I got the original recipe from.
On another note, so much hair stuff has happened in the past 2.5 months since I last posted!
#1: my hair GREW! Um duh… But it feels so good to see growth when your hair used to be stuck at shoulder length. I have my hair in finger coils again, this is the third time I’ve done it. My hair is touching my ear, and it feels great. It was blowing in the wind! LOL… When I stretched my hair prior to putting the coils in, the front was almost touching the bottom of my nose. So I am definitely excited about my new growth, and hope it will continue. I would love to at least get back to shoulder length by the end of the year.
#2: My and my friend went to a Kinks and Drinks event (presented by Tribe Called Curl) in February in Brooklyn. It was very insightful. The drinks and gift bags were the icing on the cake! The guest speakers were Karen of Karen’s Body Beautiful and Stylist Diane C. Bailey. All in all, a great experience and I’m hoping to find another natural hair meetup soon.
#3: I received the entire Pantene Truly Natural line from Naturally Curly to review (back in February), and haven’t done it yet. I use the co-wash mostly. There isn’t much to say other than their products dry my hair out. I usually follow up with my HEHH conditioner and Shea Moisture products. Everything in that line, including the oil, still contains silicones. Nothing “truly natural” about it. I’ll continue to use it because I hate wasting products, but I wouldn’t buy on my own. **Side note: Pantene products have had the same scent for years. Washing my hair with it takes me back to the days when I’d wash my Barbie’s hair with the little sample bottles, lol.
Um, what else? My son turned 5 a couple of weeks ago. I officially will have a kindergartener in September. Not too happy about that. He’s getting too old! I thought turning 3 was bad cause kids are no longer free in certain activities, but 5 is worse! He’s not a baby anymore. He’s about to start school, no more day care (I guess that part is a plus, less $$)… Ugh, next thing you know he’ll be off to college.
Lemme stop with the dramatics. Anyways, my next post will be about the last 4 recipes I cooked up. And I may update this one with pics of my hair. I’m too tired now.
Good night readers!
