Wash Routine After 5 Weeks Sew-In

I think I could have went another week, but I was excited to try my new shampoo and conditioner duo by Camille Rose Naturals! Ok, so I can never take out my own sew-ins, and when I do, I always end up cutting over an inch of hair. So, my nice fiance always cuts out my hair for me. 💋💑

  • I rub my braids with a mixture of Coconut Oil and Rosemary Oil. I wrap a plastic bag on my head and let it sit for 15 minutes before I start to take down my braids. Also, I keep dipping my hand in the mixture as I take my braids down, less tangles.
  • I do not detangle or use a comb when I take my braids down. I usually let it sit for an hour or so without heat after I take the braids out, but I was feeling extra lazy, so I ended up sleeping with it.
  • I wash my scalp once with V05 Clarifying Shampoo, then I follow up with CRN Cleansing Rinse, then I apply the CRN Conditioning Custard in sections
  • I finger detangle first, then I use a comb to work out the rest of the dead hair and tangles. I don't deep condition this go round, again, laziness 😆
  • I wrap my hair in a t-shirt, but my hair doesn't take long to dry, I actually have to re-damp it
  • I apply Sweet almond oil, and then a styling butter
  • I grab the ends of my hair and kind of shake it, then I shake my head to get my curls to separate and clump where I need them to for a nice wash-n-go style

PS: I'm wearing the plastic bag under this wig!

I didn't use this conditioning pack this time, I wanted to, but got lazy

The end result! Love the curls and definition!

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.

I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

32 on the Nautical Mile

I recently celebrated my 32nd birthday, and it was quite a nice day. I finally got to wear this dress that I purchased last year! I got a little too tipsy, and couldn't even drink the 2nd round I ordered. I was a little disappointed with Nautical Mile. Being from FL, when I think "Water front dining" I think Beach front, and this wasn't the case. I still enjoyed the area. I'm bummed I was too tipsy to explore, but to be honest, there wasn't very much to see as far as sightseeing.

Getting ready? I always keep it kinda simple. I'm no make-up guru by any means. I just like to hide my hyper pigmentation and have bold lips. I don't even wear mascara because it irritates my eyes. I also throw in the towel when it comes to pink lipsticks! It just doesn't agree with my complexion what-so-ever. The red looks much better. Both mattes were by Black Radiance.

I love being out in Long Island because it reminds me a lot of being home. There are actual parking …
