Happy Black History Month

[Circa 2008, please excuse the winter acne...]

It's one of my favorite months of the year, besides my birthday. I just think the culture behind this month makes it a really beautiful month. *Sigh* I'm actually having a good hair day tonight. I'm pleased that I have about half an inch of new growth. But my front just doesn't curl at all anymore. All the hair dying has really killed my curl pattern, and I'm glad I stopped the obsession. The back of my hair, the curls really pop, they look amazing. If I smooth them out, they are smoothed out. I do like the fashion that hair dye brings, but I think a lot of the reason for dying so much was a way to relax my curls, especially in the back. When I didn't properly know how to detangle my hair, I got matting all the time. Whether I dyed my hair or not. I've learned a lot in my journey, and I think I still have a lot to learn. I just want to really exhibit my hair's full potential of being a beautiful head of curls. Of course I want length, I would be really happy if my curls grew to brastrap length unstretched within the next couple years. Right now, I am just focusing on growing out the dyed hair and getting my hair back into a natural, healthy state.

I purchased a jar of Coconut oil, a Denham brush, and a bottle of Aloe Vera gel a couple weeks ago. The first night I used the denham brush and coconut oil together, I got gorgeous results. But my hair hated the way I used the denham brush once it dried. I haven't really got the technique down, so I'm avoiding a $13 brush. I still can't believe I paid $13 for a brush, really?

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…
