Natural Wonders

Hello to all my readers!  This past  weekend was the World's Natural Hair Show in Atlanta.  I was unable to make it last year so I was overly excited about going this year.  So me and the girls hit the road.  As I am a lover of most things Atlanta, this trip did not disappoint.  We did some clubbing and some grubbing.  Friday night club scene was at Cream Ultra Lounge.  Aside from the bartender trying to give herself a 15 dollar tip...I enjoyed the night.  Then it was off to some late night grub at R. Thomas Deluxe Grill (love those wings and that magic stuffed potato)!

So then came Saturday.  We hit up the flea market, visited some friends and then headed to the Georgia International Convention Center.  It was so jam packed that a police was blocking entrance into the parking lot...no biggie.  We just parked across the street and walked.  Reliving this makes me want to cry...once we got into the convention center we were informed that the event was OVER CAPACITY and they were not letting anyone else in.  I. Was. Bummed.  They told us to make sure to come back on Sunday {Early} so that we could be guaranteed admission.

Unfortunately we were heading back to Columbia on Sunday so that wasn't an option for us.  So once again I missed the festivities.  :(  However, I have enjoyed looking at everyone's fabulous pictures.  So until next year...I continue to wonder how lovely of an event it is.

I am thankful for my friends that will hop on the road with me at the drop of a dime and even more thankful for those that let us crash at your spot!!!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
