Blog Makeover

At the advice of one of my favorite bloggers I will being giving my blog a little makeover! Just a heads up in case it looks different next time you visit!

My first attempt at styling Fro Fro. Jenna.Sais.Quoi's version of a High Puff

Happy Sunday Blog People! It's super slow at work today so entertain myself I will share my hair story from this morning with you!

( Life got in the way and it is now Wednesday when I am posting this. But I started on Sunday I swear!)

If you did not know, natural hair is hard. I have no idea why I thought It was going to be easy when I was relaxed.
I just took down my Brazilian extentions from noa lynne boutique and I am about to get some Senegalese twists.
Well for the past two day my natural hair (her name is fro fro ) has been out and about. Typically I just co wash fro fro add some curly products from Aveda and call It a day.
This morning I woke up and decided to try actually styling Fro Fro for a change. I researched VIA Google and Youtube for almost an hour before deciding to try a high puff

This first picture is what a high puff is supposed to look like.

Now this is what I did and what I ended up with!

First I wet Fro Fro then brushed her out into what I consider a real Afro.
Then I applied my "gel" around my perimeter. Except I don't own any gel so I just used this Garnier Fructis product that promises 24 hour hold. Sounded the same as gel to me "shrug".

Then I followed one of the MANY youtube videos I watched this morning and used a scarf to "set" my "gel".

Apparently this puts like waves in your hair which I DID NOT know. I thought you had to have a certain "grade" of hair to get the waves. *cue good and bad hair from School Daze*

( Made it extra large because I thought the waves were hard to see)

Then I simply tied my scarf around it because I was lacking in the ouchless headbands that were typically used in the making of a high bun.

Overall I was extremely please with the result! I think my hair in the back needs to grow a little bit more though. Maybe by the next time I wear my hair again it will be perfect!

Just an Update Post

Hello Blog People!

Just wanted to give you an update on my life!

To start with...

My baby sister is engaged and I am unofficially a Maid of Honor (its not official till I get my official request lol)
The happy couple has a beautiful website with more pictures and their story. Go check it out at !
The second update is....
I'm Officially In a Relationship with my Best Friend
This happy couple does not have a website...We are just dating that would be weird....
I almost had to blog about how I almost ruined everything. But Lo and Behold communication really is key and discussing everything ended with the dramatic conclusion of ME asking him to be my boyfriend. Yep I asked him! It was the least I could do since I messed up. BIG TIME. But enough about that lol.

I have discovered when you meet the right person it changes you.  I am suddenly having all these domesticated thoughts and wanting to stay in rather than go dancing at the clubs. I am wanting to become more like the kind of woman a man would want to marry. Less selfish putting their happiness before mine. It is a strange feeling. 
I am really happy with life right now. Unfortunately when I am happy I blog less. I also workout less so I am sad to say I gained all the weight back I lost 6 months ago. And its swimsuit season and for some reason crop tops are in style. While this ungodly lower stomach pudge definitely is not. So back to the gym it is for me and hopefully I can lose 15 lbs before swim suit season ends.
