Wash Day | Jumbo Perm Rods (On Weave)

Jumbo Perm Rod Set

Finally, I'm back with a wash day post!  The last time my hair was washed, it was at the salon for my current sew-in weave so there was really nothing to report.  I washed my hair last week (click here for 'How to Wash & Condition Your Weave') using Good Hair in a Bottle products. Since I began working with this company, I've found my hair really does respond well to them (particularly the conditioner) so they have become my go-to … [Read more...]

My countdown for Destination Jamaica is officially on!  I've known about this trip for months and of course the first thing that popped into my head was "I wanna feel and look good on that beach!"  After all, isn't every woman's first thoughts when planning a vacation 1) what they are going to wear and 2) what they are going to do with their hair?  So, I immediately told myself I had to get back into shape.  However, work demands and let's be … [Read more...]

Remember last year when I followed a vegan diet for a month?  I had no intentions of trying to become vegan, or even vegetarian full time, but certain habits were life changing for me.  One of the biggest changes was my shift in thinking - beforehand whenever I would plan meals, I always started with the meat first then tried to think about what "sides" would go with it.  Now, I place just as much - if not more - emphasis on the vegetable … [Read more...]

Crochet Braids for Maturing Naturals


Crochet braids are an incredible protective style for a few reasons:  none of your hair is left out making it very low maintenance and healthy for your hair, they look best using synthetic (bulk) hair which makes it a very inexpensive style, and it is super simple to install and remove.  For all of these reasons, my mom decided to take the plunge with the trend, but as she is a "maturing natural" - she did NOT want a voluminous, full look with … [Read more...]

Ski Trip Longing 4 Length

Hey ladies!  Are you following me on Instagram?  If not, please do @EbonyCPrincess; I actually intended to get this post up last week but weather delays kept me in Jersey longer than planned so I'm a week late sharing.  I seem to always assume that everyone is up to date on things from my IG account....which is totally unfair.  Anywhoo - those who are following probably caught some of my pictures from a couple of weeks ago when I went on a … [Read more...]
