Fitness Friday: How to Pack a Salad in a Jar

I have been seeing lots of ladies sharing their prettily packed salad in a jar recipes on Instagram for months now.  I honestly thought it was a trendy fad to use mason jars rather than plain ol’ ziploc bags or plastic containers until recently when I decided to research it a bit.  I was surprised… [Continue Reading]

Straightening Systems for Black Hair

One of the newest phenomenons for Black hair, most often targeted for naturals, are the so-called “straightening systems” which are almost always keratin-based.  Keratin is a protein and when hydrolyzed (fragmented) easily deposits itself on to the hair shaft in the regions of porosity and damage.  Hydrolyzed keratin proteins are small enough to go beyond the cuticle… [Continue Reading]

ECP’s got a big ol’ BUN – Oh yeah!!!

I'm loving just airdrying my hair after water aerobics & swimming and pulling it into a sleek high bun.  Oh the joys of having super straight relaxed hair!!! After about two weeks the thinness I experienced went away and I was left with straight but thick hair. I don't even have to use a brush, I just smooth it up with my hands, put it in a ponytail and don't pull it all the way through on the last looping.  Then I fan the bun out a bit and … [Read more...]

Fashion: Leopard for Church

I must admit, I enjoy wearing skirts and I'd love to return to a time where hats in church were commonplace!  By the way...yes, I am wearing hosiery and yes, my friends make fun of me, calling me old for wearing pantyhose every week.  (clearly wasn't ready for the pic yet...lol!)I am somewhat conservative in my church attire (no cleavage, buttoned all the way up to my neck, skirts always - never pants, and minimal makeup) however I do believe … [Read more...]

Yesterday’s Wash Day – Deluxe Treatment

I have been swimming a lot lately (as you know) and my hair has taken its fair share of wear and tear these last few weeks.  I'd already planned to stay in last night and give my hair the ultimate royal spa treatment along with a Charmed marathon (courtesy of Netflix).  So after my exercise in the pool I washed with a new Swimmer's shampoo that I plan to use a few more times before reviewing.  I've been giving my hair plenty of moisture lately … [Read more...]

Saturday’s Hair: Start to Finish

This post is ALL about the hair, with a little bit of vacation details thrown in.  First thing Saturday morning it was time for the beach.  I sprayed my hair with either Aussie Leave-In or S-curl (I can't remember which) and sealed my ends and edges with castor oil.After being out in the sun for a few hours, my hair felt dry - not unmoisturized, but just HOT from the sun.  So I took it down, poured some bottled water into my hands and dampened … [Read more...]

Florida Fun in the Sun!

I have been incredibly blessed to have a fam medicine physician-mentor through my church who actually graduated from the medical school I attend.  How awesome is that?!  Anywhoooo, she invited my friend and I down to Florida for the weekend, just because she has a giving spirit and was led to provide us with a "get-away."  I am normally so not a spontaneous person (this was such a last minute thing)...but what can I say, I made a gametime … [Read more...]
