Heyyyyyyyyyyy ya'll!!!!  In the history of L4L I have never taken a hiatus from the blogosphere for longer than a week!  And without any notice to boot.  I ain't no type of good, I know....I know.  Thanks for hanging in there til my return, it wasn't a planned break or anything.  Work became super busy for me and before I could even blink, a month flew by without me sharing anything.  And rather than become stressed out about it, I knew … [Read more...]

Fitness Friday | Healthy Substitutions

Healthy Substitutions - Longing 4 Length

There are a few foods I've tried in place of higher calorie foods and sincerely ended up loving them just as much if not more than the "original."  I'll be the first to admit not all substitutions are winners - sometimes I'd rather go without than eat the healthier option (no fat free chocolate for me!) - but there are quite a few healthy substitutions that are here to stay in my life. Without further adieu - here are my favorite healthy … [Read more...]

Hair Product Empties!

Product empties

I'm so serious about cleaning out my hair products....I've given a TON of products away to friends and family, but it seems like I've barely made a dent in my stash!  There are so many great products on the market for healthy hair - things I'm curious about and buy to try and items that are sent to me for review consideration by brands.  I only have one head and am using less products than normal since I have mostly been hiding my hair. … [Read more...]

In a former life, I believe in my heart...I was a skrippa!!!  Even though I am now *whispering* in my thirties, I still love good ratchet music!!!  Songs like Soulja Boy declaring She Gotta Donk or Trina telling you to Look Back at It!  And nothing beats the good ol' throwbacks like I Wanna Rock Right Now (Luke) and You Can Do It (Ice Cube), right?!  And you know ish is real when you scrunch your face up, make duck lips and tooch your booty … [Read more...]

Fitness Friday | First Time Hiking Tips From My Experience!

First Time Hiking Tips-2

Those who have followed my fitness journey over the past year have heard me declare how much I prefer outdoor exercise to traditional workouts, especially in a group setting.  It's more challenging (for me) and much more fun!  So when a girlfriend invited me to join her exercise group for an outdoor hike, my eyes lit up!  I wasn't sure what to expect since I  had never met any of the other group members, but she assured me it would not be too … [Read more...]

Now ya'll know I have been hiding my hair throughout the majority of my transition thus far.  Before this wash day, I actually had an appointment to have my hair braided down for my wigs...then decided to cancel so I could play in my hair a bit more.  What REALLY happened is I saw my hair friends Jeni of Just Grow Already and KLP of Saving Our Strands do amazing flexi rod sets on their hair at 60+ weeks post relaxer (I'm bowing down girls, … [Read more...]
