Fitness Friday | Ski Trip + Still Loving My Spiralizer

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...]

Updates | Hair, Blog + Fitness!

Blog Updates

Happy New Year! I pray everyone had a fantastic holiday season as I did.  I went home to New Jersey, ended up NOT doing my hair and just wearing my new favorite wig....and had an amazing time! Everyone just loves me in that unit, which brings me to the first update of 2015 - hair, of course! I'm approximately 70-ish weeks post relaxer and my rough estimation is that 75% of my hair is relaxer free.  My hair is extremely layered and I … [Read more...]

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?! Of course there are plenty of people who … [Read more...]

Think Like a Man Too Screening in NYC!

Think Like a Man Too - Longing 4 Length

As some of you know from following my Instagram (@EbonyCPrincess) and other social media outlets, I was fortunate enough to attend a private screening of Think Like a Man Too in New York City courtesy of Motions Hair!  First of all, this opportunity was completely unexpected and presented itself while I visiting family in New Jersey for a couple of weeks.  So, while I packed some cutesy clothes, I had nothing that said "I'm about to go meet a … [Read more...]

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...]

Thankful!

thank-you

I have so many things to thank and praise God for, I cannot possibly list them all.  However, I could not allow Thanksgiving to pass without thanking you for your support of L4L and all that I share here!  Your encouragement continually blesses me and I wanted to take a minute to let you know how thankful I for each and every one of you.  THANK YOU!  Happy Thanksgiving to those from the US and to everyone, I pray you have an amazing day! … [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...]
