Yeah, right! My hair looks crazy when I get out the shower! But today it had to be done. I woke up this morning and had to wash my hair because it smelled like smoke and outside. Yet, I was in a rush. The dining hall at my school closes at 2:00PM on Sunday, but I have to get there before 1:30PM so I can get chocolate covered strawberries! Still, knowing all this beforehand, I woke up at 12:45... Ya'll see my dilemma??! 

Wanna know what saved me?? 2 words Finger Coils. I just coiled up the front and sides, and left the back in a patted down fro. EASY! To jazz up the style I put on a red bandanna & decided to rock the Rosie the Riveter look! The funny thing is, I hate any type of hair accessories! BUT.... I'm warming up to them.. I forsee some headbands and more bandannas in the future. (btw, i borrowed the bandanna from my roomie, i don't own any hair accessories!) I gotta step up my game!  

what ya'll think??

Hey guys!

I'm posting from my cell phone in a dining hall right now!  I just had to show ya'll how I've been wearing my hair lately! This new style is so easy, quick, and long -lasting!  All you need is gel, water, and a denman brush or anything close to it!  Here are my results!  I'll post a video of how to achieve this style when I'm on my PC later!! 

**sorry the pictures wouldn't load when i posted it the first time! **

Get the look by following these instructions in the video below:
Downside: My hair was very dry when I washed my hair... Perhaps, I used too much gel or perhaps I need a different conditioner... I don't think it's working anymore! (YES, i know hers looks way better than mine haha)

my biggest mistake was dying my hair... i think i'm gonna have to start over. i'm not sure if i should redye my hair to the color black but this color I have now is not meant for my hair.. It feels so dry & isn't holding a curl.. It's just really rough. I haven't made a decision yet as to what I'm going to do, but I plan on implementing some protective styles so I can keep my hands out of my hair and let it grow..

i should've listened when ppl told me not to color it.. oh well, ya live, ya learn. it's hair, it'll grow back.. now is all about restoration!

I've been missing for a while and sorry is the only word that immediately comes to mind. I've been neglecting this blog... While, I haven't done it purposefully, I still feel bad that I've neglected something that I told myself I'd devote a lot of my time to. But whatever, we all fall short sometimes.. What's important is that we rise after we fall... This is me trying to rise.

A lot has been going on lately, (I'm not using these things as excuses, I just feel the need to share them, that's all). First and foremost, I'm transferring to Howard University in the fall! I was recently accepted and I could not be more excited to start this new chapter in my life. Next, I applied for an internship in California this summer with Breakthrough. Although, I'm not sure if I'll be offered the position yet, I'm being considered at 2 sites, one in Oakland and another one in San Franciso. Idk if I ever told ya'll but my sister lives in Cali! For this reason, I'm really looking forward to summer. 

I dream a lot. It keeps me sane. I have so many goals & I want to accomplish them all... What's occurred to me lately is that I don't have to wait to begin my goals.. I don't have to wait for a degree or experience. I have to make my own qualifications, and I don;t need to commit myself to a timeline I didn't create. Society says you dont really start your business, fulfill your goals until you graduate for college. FORGET THAT! I'm gonna start now!

I went to church for the first time while being in Athens today. It was nice. I had communion. My friend Jackie accompanied me. It was a methodist church & for some reason it all felt so natural. I haven't been to a church like that in a long while. I used to go to a methodist church when I was younger... until, we suddenly just stopped. Not sure why... Now my family attends a mini megachurch... *shrugs* I;ve said all this to say that you have to do what's right for you. I don't like the mini megachurch we go to. It feels forced. 

I bought some shirts from Forever 21 today. I'm revamping my wardrobe. I watched a video on Youtube by Beautycrush about creating your personal style. Her advice was to start with the basics (black & white) then add accessories on top. I'm definitely taking her advice. I feel like my clothes are so kiddy... I'm about to be 20 years old, but I have the style of a 17 year old. Maybe it's because I'm maturing that i feel like my clothes just aren't me anymore. Although, I don't have the money to completely start over from scratch. I'm gonna start small by collecting simple pieces..  'staple pieces'.
I've always been really afraid to give away clothes because I thought I would eventually need them. But now, I'm at the stage whereas I don't want to collect items I don't ever wear.. Letting it go. Bye clothes and everything else I have no use for.

I want to start wearing my contacts, I'm gonna buy some glasses soon.. I wanna try a winged eye look but I need a liquid eyeliner pencil to achieve that look haha. I want to wear a nude lip and try new makeup looks... When I go home, I;m gonna buy some, perfect my craft and play with my face. Experiment with eyeshadows, concealers, eye brow looks, etc.

I'm getting booty braids for the summer.. I need to keep my hands out of my hair. I'm excited to do styles with em and maybe take OOTD! In the meantime, i'm just gonna rock an afro. no twist-out. Lately, I've been finding jeans that make my butt look really good. For all those who don't know I dont have a butt. It's so 1-D. hehe but these jeans making it look 3-D! FTW!!

anywayz, that's all that;s been up. love ya. watch me rise.

wanna see the clothes i got from F21? Here ya go. ♥ (starting small)
