Winter Cut

I couldn't take it anymore. I let my friend straighten my hair, and my ends were so dried and fried. I experience a lot of shedding because I don't properly moisturize my hair. So, a trim, as usual, turned into me getting cut happy. I was only suppose to cut off the "rough" parts of my hair, but it turned out a lot of my hair was "rough", so I just chopped them all off!

Chop, Chop, Chop! :

My length? Maybe 1" shorter in some places.
My hair? Loves me for it.

Only problem? Old habits die hard. It's been days since I have properly conditioned my hair, and it's starting to look terrible all over again. Which only equals out to being: what was the point in cutting your hair, if you're only going to continue to not love it?
My verdict? Never be afraid to let loose of tired, dried, dead ends. Hair will grow back! It'll grow back faster, and most importantly: healthier.
Tell tale signs I needed a trim:
  • My hair was dry no matter how much I conditioned it
  • My ends looked like hay
  • I experienced a lot of tangles, even dreads

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
