I’m Going Vegan For a Month

Going Vegan - Longing 4 Length

I never thought I'd see the day when I would even attempt a vegan lifestyle, if only for a month!  Quite honestly, like natural hair, going meatless is somewhat of a trend these days and not always a healthier choice.  Sometimes people can be vegan (not eating any animal products including meat, eggs and dairy) but may load up on carbs, starches and refined sugar - where's the healthiness in that?!

Fitness Friday: A Rare Progress Picture

30 lb weight loss progress picture - Longing 4 Length

I haven't updated on my personal weight loss journey in a while, mainly because I've been stalling at the same weight for the last two months.  This is not at all a plateau, I simply have been off my game and a bit unfocused truthfully.  I realize I could be a lot further along had I truly pushed myself and was a bit disappointed in myself as 2013 comes to a close.  However, I was getting dressed the other morning in an outfit that began with … [Read more...]

Wash Day: Rollerwrap with Capelli Halo Rollers

halo rollers review

Being that my workout schedule means my hair stays cute for about two days max, I intended to have it braided for wig wear this week.  However, I was asked to review a set of rollers from Capelli Care.  Once I visited their site, I was ecstatic to accept because the rollers are similar to my beloved plastic mesh rollers which significantly cut down on my dryer time.  Some of you may remember my only complaint about the Diane plastic mesh … [Read more...]

I've mentioned the addition of tennis to my regular routine several times throughout July and began sharing a few photos of my meals via Instagram (@EbonyCPrincess) so you probably realize that I am on a weight loss journey (again).  I wanted to hold off on making any formal announcements about it until I was settled into a rhythm and knew for sure that this wasn't yet another false start!  After I lost ten pounds in a month, I feel very … [Read more...]
