Today :)

Hey, Hey, Hey!! It's almost the beginning of a new month! Yay! I am not going to lie the events that have taken place over the course of the month couldn't have come at a better time!! Really! I'm going to try and make this as short and sweet without going into too many details.

Let's start with my hair. I told you all that I was going to keep it twisted for the month of June and I have for the most part. Of the month I've worn my hair out 4 days (up to date). I just had to make a collage of the most recent style. I purchased some beads from a local bss and retwisted a few strands to put the shells in and this was the result! I adore my hair.
This is my review of Oyinhandmade's Honeywash. I'm going to be honest. It lathers well and is ok, I just wasn't too impressed with it. I used it several times. It kind of made my hair feel straw like and dry. I use it to wash my (oily) face. Other than that, NEXT. I have an idea of a shampoo bar from another company that I am going to try next month and I will review it next month. I am going to keep the Juices & Berries.
I'm going to recognize a few people here. This is where I give congratulation caps to a few naturals. My sister and nephews (both babies, not to be dismissed) are all natural. My sister is about 6 months natural and her fro is fabulous!! If our schedules allow, I will be twisting her hair and adding shells. I would love to get a picture of all of us together and post in on here (soon). To all of my friends that are transitioning: Abony, Shauntay, and Kelia. Welcome to the natural family ladies!! :)

Also, I want to give a special thanks to those of you that have complimented me on my hair and are following me on the journey that I am sharing with you all.

Next, my weight, I stepped on the scale a few days ago and I'm down to 144lbs. Not too bad. I need to make it a point to workout even harder. I'm going to have to. I want to be comfortable and I am almost there. 10 pounds to go. I can do this. I'm running my own race & I will get to the finish line.

My bookshelf. I haven't read as much as I would've like to this month. I have been busy. That's all.

Thank you to all the people that I have met this month and to those of you I haven't met yet, I would like to Thank you. For being a part of my life. I have friends in my life that are complete strangers. :) I say that, but what I really mean is that they are angels. I believe God allows people in your life for a reason. It may not be disclosed to you and any blessing that comes my way shouldn't be questioned.. There is no explanation. No need for one either. I would go into detail but there's really no need to. I'm working everyday to establish my relationship with God. No worries. I'm good. Trust me. :)

Thank you Kelia

I've also updated my fotki page. Thank you ladies for the wonderful comments!
