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.)

Repeat!

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…

THAT WAS FAST!!!!

OMG I LOOK CRAZY BUT I’M SO EXCITED!!!

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!!!

2 MORE WEEKS!!!!!

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!!!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!!

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…

WHAT ARE WHITE PAPERS?!?!?!

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.

Advertising vs. Public Relations

Since PR is my current ambition, I felt that reading up on it and the changes that the industry is going through would be a good idea. Enter PR 2.0

Last semester I shared with a professor my desire to learn more about the Public Relations and its practice, she suggested this, among other books. Unfortunately, none of the other titles were as memorable as this one (I guess those authors did not practice what they preached. Ha!). I’ve gotten past the first few pages and something stuck out to me. She defined advertising and PR in a contrasting statement saying that advertising is when your company talks about itself and PR is when another person talks about (extols) your company.

That’s all. I just wanted to reflect on that tidbit of information and make it a part of my PR mindset especially in campaign making.
