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]

Pedicure Must Haves for Perfect Toes

Hallelujah its officially springtime!  I can’t speak for readers in other countries but here in the US we had a horrific winter.  We had record breaking low temperatures, tons of snow and ice storms and overall just an awful season.  I already hate winter (except for the holidays) and the fact that the cold just… [Continue Reading]

Review: Shellac Manicure (incl. hair thoughts)

(I wrote this back in September and forgot to schedule it to post, sorry!!!)Shellac manicures have become wildly popular.  It costs more than a regular manicure but less than a full set of gel or acrylic nails.  Shellac is actually a brand of soak off gel nail polish, but there are other brands such as Axxium, Gelish, Gellac, CND, Cheez, etc.  If you do a google search for 'soak off gel nail polish' you will receive a bunch of brands and sites … [Read more...]

Hair Ramble

Today's High BunI've been trying to alternate the direction in which I wrap my hair to avoid thinning on my left side.  It's funny how difficult it is for me to wrap towards the left, but when I do it the "normal" way - I swear I can do it in less than 60 seconds in the dark with one hand tied behind my back!  lol.  I was aware that wrapping in the same direction could cause thinning, but since the start of my HHJ I figured I didn't wear my … [Read more...]

Black Men & Interracial Relationships (completely non-hair related)

I received two very interesting emails regarding my post about my class reunion.  To refresh your memory, or enlighten you if you have not read that post, I was discussing my feelings about my father, brother and two male friends and stated that because of their presence in my life, I know for a fact that good Black men exist and are not a scarcity as society sometimes leads us to believe.One email asked if I was against interracial … [Read more...]

My “new” APL seems longer!

While visiting NJ, my homeboy "G" was supposed to come visit me, but he got lazy had to work.  We live a good 2 hours away from one another in NJ without traffic, which never happens on a holiday weekend so I wasn't too mad that he didn't make the drive down.  However, the other day I was whining telling him how sad I was we didn't see each other and we caught up on our weekend activities.  I told him how I just had my hair trimmed because my … [Read more...]

Planning my class reunion

I am (was) my Class President, sophmore - senior year.  I was secretary Freshman year and unhappy about our leadership (I was such a friggin renegade in high school, lol!) so I decided to run for President. I realized it was a larger responsibility if elected senior year because that makes you class president for LIFE and the primary responsibility is planning reunions.  I took the responsibility seriously - such a type A personality - and … [Read more...]
