People trust people…….

Well, no they don’t but they DO trust people about products more than companies trying to market said products. Really, who would you rather believe a person who holds no stake in a company and is not being paid to give their “opinion” about something (PR) or a company who wants you to believe that their products can and will change your life if you only give it a chance for $19.99 (advertising)?

It’s all about credibility. I am not saying that companies are not credible but they do work for their benefit and not solely the improvement of their customers’ lives and well-being.

(Please notice that I said solely – I feel that somewhere in the heart of corporation beats a desire to help humanity making things better for our fellow man. Then again, I am quite the realist and sometimes, I lapse into unwarranted optimism. Haha)

I’m really trying to solidify these things in my mind. I feel like it can give me some kind of direction in my learning process.

-> Internalize <-


I think I’m going to adopt

…a new style that is. Although, when I get married I would like to adopt a child, still that is a subject for later on.

I figure that if I use perm rods, I will really only have to worry about my hair once…or twice a week. Maybe this is turning into a post about a regimen….ok. Let’s do that.

My Potential Regimen

Sunday – bun for church…(again this is only a potential reg.)

Night time-Rod set

Monday – Unrodded awesomeness

Tuesday – Day old unrodded awesomeness

Wednesday – Two day old unrodded awesomness

Thursday – Three day old unrobbed awesomeness

Friday – I think you get the point

Saturday – unrodded awesomeness puff? and wash (I doubt I’ll need a real wash every weekend. Maybe just a rinse or co-wash AGAIN only a potential reg.)


Now I’m sure during my unrodded awesomeness in the week I will be utilizing bobby pins and making my hair into an actual style…or not. Whatever the day brings ya know?

Anywaiz, the real point is that I think I’m gonna use perm rods in my hair. It’s been a while since I’ve done that and I think at the length my hair is now it would look really nice.

Here’s hoping anyhow…



So I made an order to BGLH Marketplace on Feb 14 (my V-Day present to myself. LoL) and it came in the mail ALREADY!!!!!! I am so excited about it. Not just the products themselves but the time it took to get here. Among the 2 products I ordered, I got Oyin Shine and Define (I seriously can go on and on about this product forever). When I first ordered the sample from Oyin, it took like 3 weeks to get to me. They make their products with lots of love and care so I can totally understand why it took so long BUT I guess, just as any other beauty supply store would BGLH had them there ready to ship on demand. SOOOO THIS IS A WIN-WIN!!! I can still support one of my favorite companies, Oyin and get the product I want very quickly. Awesome.

Oh and I also got Darcy Botanicles Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme. I’ve never tried it before but after reading (and watching videos) about it, it seemed like something I wanted to try. Plus it was only $12 and I didn’t want to just order the S&D.

All right, now back to our regularly scheduled programming: HOMEWORK!!!


OMG I am sooooo excited! I have not seen my hair in over a month and soon soon SOON!!!! I am going to take my twists down, deep condition and play with my hair until my cousin’s wedding when I will get a straight style but until then, I will be more than happy to see my hair and do stuff with it. I’ve missed it and I’ve been trying so hard not to take these twists down.

I’ve taken 2 out in the back just to see how it’s been growing and where/if I have any damage on my ends and really, I just need a slight trim and I am good to go.

Can you tell I can’t wait to take my hair down? I feel like I’m rambling about my hair….I am. I’m excited. EXACTLY 2 WEEKS until March first!!!! AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

After the wedding, literally the week after, I’m going to get my twists back in until the end of the semester and then summer time, the fro comes back 🙂

Adios! I have stuff to do!!!!

One last thing!!!


I really love the images that Google uses. It inspires me!!!! It makes me want to be better.

All right, on to the actual topic.

LAST ORDERS FOR A WHILE!!!!!! I was dying to get some more

OMG I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!! I had the 2oz. sample size before and honestly, I fell in love with it so I bought the full sized one to enjoy. I’m very excited about that. I also ordered

Why??? To be honest, I don’t know. I saw it, it looked interesting and I watched a review and all I heard was moisture, moisture, moisture. I’m down with that!!!

These will be my last purchases for a while and I think I can live with that 🙂

I can’t wait til I get them! Oh and I ordered them from BGLH!!!! Love the blog, love the shop!!!

Look what I just ordered!!!

So on ModCloth, I found and fell in love with this dress. It’s a pretty simple design that should fall a little above my knee and I am very excited about it. I think I see it with a black (or brown???) belt and a marigold cardigan…yea!!! I’m really excited because of the neutrality of this piece. While it has the ornate stripe design, it can easily be paired with items of just about any shade. SHWEET!!!!! Oh and the pockets. It has pockets! I love pockets! They are an absolute plus with this buy.


I think I’m really into strips right now…


In my search for information on how to properly put together a press kit I keep coming across the term white papers. Everything else I’ve read about are pretty straight forward things that I have done, recognize and have had exoerience with (bios, press releases, past coverage, etc.) BUT WHAT THE HECK ARE WHITE PAPERS?!?!?!?!

So once again, I was on a Google hunt which of course did not take long because, well, Google caters to the microwave generation. So here it is:

white papers – an authoritative report or guide that is often oriented toward a particular issue or problem (source <- Wikipedia should never be used as a real source but a map leading to other sources, still, it was the first one that I saw. Call it lethargy. LoL)

Hmmmm how do I produce those? I’m going to keep researching and figure it out. I would really like know exactly what I’m getting into before I dive in head first.
