Big Chop...Again!

Hair Today...Gone Tomorrow.

If you know me, you know that my hair has always been a form of expression for me. Sometimes it speaks a little to LOUDLY but whatever! :-) I believe that there is little that we actually have control over, but totally controllable! As long as my hair is healthy I'm good! I've been relaxed, natural, relaxed, bald, relaxed and now I'm natural again. I love the versatility of weave and wigs. I do feel as though natural hair is best FOR ME, so I don't see myself going back to the creamy crack a relaxer, but I enjoy the multitude of styles that are at my disposal...and I have disposed of a lot of them!

For the past 9 months or so I have been growing dread locs...much to the dismay of many, but they all actually learned to love my locs. It was a labor of love and I admit that I was in love with my locs. But on a rainy Saturday morning, I decided that I was ready for a change...and while the action itself was impulsive, I did actually give it some thought. With my locs, all I basically had to do was keep them maintained. I only styled them when I felt like it and was lovely. I took a journey through my hair journey album on Facebook and I missed my afro. I missed its kinky-curly pattern, I missed the shrinkage, I missed it. Period. So I woke up, called my mom (my go to hair-do remover) and it was on. I washed and conditioned my hair and let the wonders of a clear plastic cap go to work. My mom honestly tried to save every strand of hair on my head. I had to stop her and say just cut it! I hadn't had my loc maintenance done in almost a month, as the question went back and forth in my head. So here we are...once again afro'd...up under these kinky twists anyway! I decided to do a protective style until I get the growth that I want...hopefully it won't take long :)

I don't know why people's feelings get so hurt when I make decisions regarding my hair...well except for my stylist who labored over taming my thick mane...but she is a dear friend that I hope will stay around...if she hasn't already written me off for cutting my locs...she mentioned something about a blade and cutting me in her voicemail lol. I heart you Staci!! As for the rest of you...this was for me and only me. You don't know the relationship of me and my hair so please keep your "what is wrong with you" comments to yourself. Thanks :)

See the transformation below...

 Bottom line, do what works for you. I'm all for natural hair, but natural hair ain't for everybody...and each person has the right to change their mind as much as they want to...and in the words of a dear friend "if you don't like it bump you!" LOL

Shout out to all those that are on a journey to find what works best for them who are loving the ride as much as I am.

Sending Chockl8Kisses,

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 c

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 W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
