Neglecting You?

LOL!
I caught that guy who wanted to date me, staring at me the other day...
I don't know whats happening but I'm staring to attract men left and right...
I'm not necessarily used to this...
Anyways...

I did my hair for the summer...
You already know...
Senegalese Twists on lock!
They are really good for me cause my hair tend to grow like a weed in the summer... 
So to keep a firm handle on my new growth I put in my twists...

They took about 10 hrs. to do this time...
And they are a little smaller and a lot neater then usual...
Every time I do them I get better...
I guess practice actually does make perfect or  should I say better....
LOL!

Pictures...
Well this is what the finished product looks like...

 And I made them a little longer then waist length...
They are probably closer to hip length

And I have to start working on the middle again...
I have to force myself to start doing my stretches and crunches again...

The back...
All bunned up...
See that little bit of  #30 peeking...
Love it!

So I've been doing a light M&S nightly/ every other night...
Been using a little alcohol free mousse to control my fly aways...
Since I don't cut and singe them off like most braiders...
Wrap with a scarf...
And when I shower I put the hair up into a big bun and let my hair steam for about 10-15 minutes...


Anyways I'm going to do care on them tomorrow...
Wash with my oil soap...
Lightly condition...and then deep condition...
Follow with a little mousse...
And re-install/ tighten any I'm not happy with...

Currently I'm  8 weeks post...
My relaxer is set for the 1st of October...
So have about another 8-9 weeks left before I relax..
Hopefully I'll be grazing BSL!
Or at least working towards full APL...

I'm expecting to be BSL for Christmas... but I'll be happy if I get there early 2011 too...

Was it Worth It?

Lately, I've wondering that a lot about my college experience...
I mean would I be in the same situation if I didn't go...
Well I wouldn't have ppl harassing me about they money...
But I also wouldn't have such great friends...


So I got a call from some lady...
She works for Chase Student Loans Recovery Somethingorother...
NEVER get a loan from them...

So she's like I'm going to need you to pay this loan off...
And I'm like...
Well I do have a p/t job...
Can we get some type of payment plan happening?
She's all like ...um no... I'm going to need it all...
I laughed...
Impossible...

52 G's?

She was like well maybe we can settle it down to about 35 for you...
She was like you're going to need to get someone to get a loan for you...

I told her... most of the ppl I know have worse credit then me...
How am I going to ask them to take out a loan for 35 grand for me...

Bill Collectors...
God is NOT pleased, with all the greed...
I'm fitna just take this to court...
Stand in front of the judge, speak my piece...
And have him tell the big greedy bank to shove it...
And put me on a payment plan I can afford...

This is really pissing me off...
But For some reason... 
I feel like it's happening for a reason...
What lesson am I learning Lord?


I would love just a little insight..

Like I told a friend of mine...
I'm just waiting for the future to happen...

I've stopped really caring about this situation tho...
I'm just going to have the lord work it out...

I don't know...

I don't know what to do...
None of this has gone right...

I think maybe it never will....
Meh...

This is life?

July 13, 2010

I know... I know...

I am talking a lot tonight...
But yeah it's raining and wow...
It is so nice outside...

The lightning is flashing...
The thunder is rolling...

And a little baby side note about my hair...
I'm back to baggy-ing...
I think I'll be doing it nightly...
Or at least every 2 days...

It's very necessary...

Check for my other posts...
I have like six before this...

G'night!

Uh Huh...

YOU LIKE ME!

Meh...
I think I'll keep this post up as constant reminder of the tom-foolery of my current place of employment...
Evidently a lot of ppl like me there.... 
let's see I count at least 4.... 

If You Think...

I'm going to stop wearing skinny jeans just because I'm fat/not skinny... 
You have lost your mind...

I recently joined lookville (if you want an invite...leave a comment)...
And recently I've heard a lot about what I should and shouldn't be wearing...
What kind of waist definition I should have...
What kind of jean cut would look best on me...
How to avoid looking bottom heavy...

And all I have to say is...
I like the clothes I wear...
If I want to squeeze my anti-skinny body into a skinny jean I shall do so...
And be happy about it...
If I want to totally disregard my waist (which is hard to do...cause as you can see my hips are wide as hell)...
I will do so and be happy about it...
If I look bottom heavy...
Thank You... I was trying to...

I'll end my rant here...

Ikea Idea...

So my room is a mess...
As you can see in every one of my pictures...
No shame in my game...

So I decided to got to Ikea to look at some inexpensive solutions to the clothing explosion in my room...
I have a chest of drawers that is older then me...
That was supposed to see the inside of a junk yard some 5+ years ago (well if you ask me)...

The chest is empty...I don't use it...instead I cram all my things into storage bins...
Which I sometimes decide to go thru and neatly fold...
But as soon as I need something I wreck it...
So I need something to put my crap in...
So I can try to maintain at least a half-way decent sty...

My outfit started out with this peachy cami and the bermuda shorts..
It has a structured waistband so it really pops the curves...
But the stupid straps are too long...
And my boobs were out (like really out...)

So I ended up wearing some wonderfully muted greens and browns...
And I actually put on a necklace and bracelets like a grown up...
As you may or may not have noticed I generally don't wear either of the two...
I like the look of my neck bare...And bracelets are generally the last thing on my mind...

 

Let's see...
Denim Bermuda Shorts...Light Green Cami... Loose Knit Mini Cardigan...Steve Madden Distressed Brown Wedges

City of Brotherly Love...

So me and my friends took a trip to Philadelphia to see some of our/my college buddies...
And I was going for a casual chic look...
So I rocked simple black and gray...
My skinny-ish leg jeans...My gray flowy vest thing... and a simple black cami...
Also I took (not wore...but I am wearing them in the photos) my new Kelly & Katie satin peep-toe platform slingbacks that I got from DSW for 18 dollars...Since they are getting their boots in for fall lots of shoes are going on super sale... Check your local stores for supersavings...
LOL! Did I sound like a commercial?

I actually wore red slingback flats with this look... 
And yes I had not a stitch of red on except for my shoes...
And it was awesome...

Anyway... 
Here are pictures...

I guess I'm on my plain jane style as of late...
Simple seems to be working...

Eyebrow Maintenance...


Ok so no one asked me how I do my eyebrows...
I just feel like sharing...

So just to start I can tell you I use a combo of threading and tweezing...
I usually start with the thread and really clean up the shape of my eyebrows...
I also use the thread to get those baby fine hairs that the tweezers can't...
then I use tweezers to get those hairs that are really close together...(so I won't make a mistake and thread a dash in my eyebrow...)
Here is a before and after shot...


I know you probably can't see it that well but in the after shot all the skin under my brow is clean and supple...
hairless...all those tiny hairs didn't survive...

So after I do that I usually trim my eyebrows... but I can't find my little scissors so I haven't done that in a while...
Lastly I take some conditioner...yes the kind for my hair and slather (a small amount) just enough for the brow on my brow and surrounding area...I then take a little mascara brush and brush them thru..
like this...

Finally I let that dry...which usually takes about 10-15 minutes...
Wash it off...
Then viola...
I get manageable and groomed eyebrows like this...


Like I said I just felt like sharing...

Always Sisters...Never Twins...

Been So Long...

makeup whoring at it's best...

I know I'm a little clown-faced but I didn't wear it out...

Guess I might have to re-up on a good summer shade...

Hmm...

So tonight I went to see Karate Kid...
not bad...

While I was in the movie my coworker(the one who asked me out)...
Started texting me...

Wow...
Well I must say I laughed a lot...

Not because he is or was funny...
But he couldn't seem to keep his lie str8...

I mean if you like me...
Thats fine...
admit it...
Don't try to flip it on me and make it seem as tho I'm imagining it...

I mean I have a very low tolerance for the bullcrap...
and I hate when ppl lie to me...

So you don't like me...
But you asked me out...

So it doesn't bother you that I don't like you like that...
But you insist that if I got to know you better I would...

So you are more reserved at the workplace...
But when given the chance to show your true (unboring) colors...
All I get is the same boring person...

Maybe I'm wrong...
But I know what kind of ppl I like....

And it isn't even based on conversations or anything like that...
It's based on the charisma...the vibe I get from you...

if there is no vibe...
and you're just wack...
then yeah...I'm going to let it go before it starts...

Oh children...
If y'all only knew...

I should have just gone with my first mind and said no I don't want to go out with you and no you can't have my number...

There is soo much more...
But I digress...

LOVE Y'ALL!!!!!
