ON THE ROAD TO HAIR RECOVERY | SHEAMOISTURE

8.16.2016

So, let's keep real!  We ALL know I wear wigs, weaves and everything in between!  They are the holy grail to prevent so much manipulation against my real hair.  But even with wearing styles to protect my hair, there are still some areas of major concern, i,e, my edge line!  Oh, the dreaded edge line!  For me, it's been through major ups and downs over the years.  I wasn't blessed with a full, thick head of locks, so the maintenance of my edges is (I would say) twice as hard as the norm.  But that's where my new love for SheaMoisture comes comes into play!

GORGEOUS GOWNS FROM HAUTE COUTURE FALL 2016

7.27.2016

MY BESTIE IS GETTING MARRIED!!!  One of my best friends of over 10 years is getting hitched and I couldn't be more excited!!  She's already picked out her wedding gown (which she looks AMAZING in) and her venue, so she's right on the money with her wedding day timeline (let me remind you, we BOTH worked in a bridal salon for many years, so we're fluent in wedding jargon)!!  In light of her future nuptials, it got me thinking of how the wedding fashions have changed over the years!  I came across this article published by Style.com Arabia titled 15 Breathtaking Bridal Gowns from Haute Couture Fall 2016 and couldn't pass up the chance to share this with you!

#BADASSHAIRDAY | ORGANIX

7.25.2016

National #BadAssHairDay was (officially) a month and a half ago with my favorite hair brand Organix, but who's to say that we should limit it to one day, right?  I had the pleasure of receiving a goody box from Organix that had a TON of their hair care products in it!  Some new and some old to me, I have to say that they are most definitely going in the hair care stash!  Come on in and take a look at what I received!  You may find a new favorite inside!

STRIPED TOP + RIPPED JEANS | LINK UP | 06.13.16

6.13.2016

This post is going to be short and sweet since as I type this, I truly have one eye half open!  I'm just flat out TIRED guys!  This is the kids last week of school, but I feel like we've been in summer vacation mode for at least the last 3.  What does that mean, Chanda?  Well my son stays pretty busy in the summer from band, track and basketball (which is putting us at our energy max), but now the little one is starting with volleyball and possibly fast pitch and I'm on straight "E"!   So forgive me, but this paragraph is all I have to give (in my Amerie voice)!  Today, I'm remixing this gorgeous striped top from my BLACK + WHITE post in February!
