Today, my curls are popping!

Before we touch on my curls today, let me just say that my hair has been the topic of many discussions.  People are constantly asking me where did I get my hair from?  What are you mixed with?  Honestly, I DO NOT KNOW.  But I will find out soon and when I do I will be sure to keep you all inform.

But I am not ashamed to say, I know I have good hair.  I don’t make any apologies for that.  Although many people have hated me for it.  Which is sad.  My hair has always been natural.  Never had a perm or relaxer.  It is naturally curly so sometimes I just embrace the curls.  While other times I’ll wear it straight like seen HERE.  It has grown over the years and I’m ready to go back short, so stay tuned for my hair journey because the saga always continues.

But for TODAY, Yaaaaaaasssss.  A sisters curls were popping.  They don’t pop every day.  Sometimes the curls look flat and not as full.  But today they came through.  I had washed my hair about two days prior so today while in the shower I wet the hair, added some curl bounce conditioner from the Kimble Hair line, dried it with a t-shirt (I learned this on YouTube) and then added some styling foam by Carol’s Daughter.  That was it.  Pop, Pop, let it Pop.img_3411img_3410img_3414img_3416

Did you have a good hair day today?  Any curl tips or secrets you’d like to share?  I’m all ears.


Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

I received these roses for Valentine’s Day.  Of course they were beautiful at first glace.  Two weeks later and they were still trying their best to hold on.  The water was getting lower and with any flower, the leaves started to turn and die.  After a few days of neglect I noticed even more beauty.  I immediately started to take photos.  My daughter asked me why I was taking pictures of dying roses.  I said to her, “you don’t see the beauty in these?”

She started to think.  She said, “it reminds me not to judge a book by its cover.”  I replied back and said, “You’re right.  No matter how you look on the outside or what you go through in life, there is still some good in you.  You’re still beautiful.”

These flowers also remind me of the elderly.  A little wrinkled but rich in color, and spirit, and wealth.
