So...

I decided to actually take my life into my hands and make some necessary changes...
the first change being weight loss...

I realize it is something I actually have to work at...
SO I joined LiveStrong.com to help me with that... 
track my food and help me actually see what I'm eating...
Therefore helping me keep a handle on me...

How are you guys?

Hair Updates...

So I started the Real Queens/Green House Effect Reggie about two weeks ago...
And so far I LOVE IT...

My hair is super soft and ultra moisturized...
I use my oil mix of Grapeseed, Extra Virgin Coconut, Nutmeg, Lavender, Grapefruit and Tea Tree Oil(s) on my hair...
And Castor Oil in my scalp..even though the method is not to put anything on your scalp...
I put it on there anyways to keep my ng moisturized and fight an itch scalp...

So today I "cowashed"...
I used a Pantene Pro V ampoule for curly hair on my ends, then I covered everything with ORS Replenishing Pak, and let it cook under a heat cap for 2 hrs...

Rinsed and did another short cowash with Pantene Pro V Deep Conditioning Treatment for curly hair...


Funny thing is my hair had a lot of oils and what not on it...
So the cowashing took just a little bit of that off...
And I blow dried, and flat ironed...
My hair super sleek from root to tip..
I'm 7 weeks post...

I think I like the RQ/GHE method...
I may stick with this for awhile....

Also, I totally forgot... but I'm coming up on my 2yr hair journey anniversary..
So these pics can be a testament to that...

I've grown about 12 inches in my 2 year journey... and I've had to cut 5 of those due to setbacks and poor care...

But I'm getting better at it everyday...

HHJ!

Fun Colors and MORE Bracelets...

So let's start with the OOTD...
One of my friends is graduation soon...
So we went looking for a couple of dresses for her upcoming ceremonies...

I took some pics of my outfit...



 Rocking some of the bracelets I made...
and a nice shot of some of the detail of my shirt...




Sweater: Martin & Osa
Shirt: Rucker by Target
Jeggings-- bought them at Ross Stores




and MORE bracelets...

So I can't quite remember how many homemade bracelets I showed you...
But here are the newest ones...


 I'm pretty sure you've seen the gold and black ones...
But the neon green, black &white and all white ones are new...

Do you see how the neon green one is giving me life tho? 
It is soooooo awesome!

The gold and green are a barrel/circle stitch...
The black and clear one (eventhough you can really see the clear gimp) is a square stitch...
The white one is a triangle stitch...
And the black and white one is a pentagon stitch...

I enjoy making these so much...
They remind me of simpler times...
And help cut down on my stress level...
As you can see the closures are different...
I like the diversity, and I have fun thinking up new ways to end and close these...


And these are awesome!

I saw this DIY on HonestlyWTF ...

Those made by the original creator are SOOOO gorgeous that I just had to try...
Based off the Do Brazil! bracelets by Aurèlie Bidermann...

 




she uses cute little paper clips to close hers... 
I've just used regular over-sized lobster clasps...
