Last Texlax Touch Up 2012

When I did this past touch up, I decided to try something new. I usually rinse out the relaxer and then put a protein on it, like 2 Min Reconstucter by Aphogee, and THEN I neutralize. Well, this time I added a little bit of the 2 Step treatment by Aphogee, along with the 2 Minute. I tried this bc I knew my hair desperately needed some protein. The pics show me with the 2 treatments on my hair. I rinsed and then I put the Balancing Conditioner that is the 2nd step of the 2 step treatment on. After that, I neutralized.

Merry Christmas!

I got to spend time with my baby cousin this Christmas! He's such a cutie. He's only a couple of months, but he got so many gifts! He's so loved! I had a blessed Christmas and I can't complain. I'm getting over a cold, so I didn't really eat like I wanted to, but I ate well. I'm grateful for my family and my friends. I'm definitely grateful that Jesus was born so that I could have life.

I met Finesse Mitchell!

Finesse Mitchell did a comedy show a couple of months back and I went. He is very cool and very funny. I had a great time. I'm sorry I'm so late with my blog, but school was so busy, that I rarely even had time to myself. With school about to be over, I will be able to give more updates. :-D

The dress I got from Ross.

Mac Visit

I went to Mac Cosmetics before work bc I had like over an hour to kill and I got some MatchMaster foundation and a foundation brush (Brush #188). She also did my brows for me. I pencil my brows in with an eyebrow pencil, but they're usually very thin, but she showed my how to make them look more natural and thicker. Now, I'm sure u can tell that they're not quite even, but hey it was free and her main thing was just showing the technique. So I'm gonna play around with this method and see what I come up with. Wish me luck! God bless u! :-D

Remodeling my Apartment

So, another one of my goals before the year is over is to remodel my apartment. I have a lot of my mom's items and not a lot of storage, so I'm ready to really make my apartment my own filled with pieces that I love and are MINE lol. So I am looking online and just making a wishlist of the things I want, I will be buying items as I go along. I found an awesome site, called DormCo, and they have a TON of items that I want because since I'm in an apartment, the space saving products that they offer are relevant for me too. If you want to check them out:

I can't wait for my big unveiling!

I met Traycee from K.I.S.S.!

I met Traycee from Kiss at an event in my hometown! I was super excited! She was very down to Earth and she even took a picture with me. She is one of my favorite hair gurus, and she was the first person who really got me excited about starting my hair journey. Her hair is waist length and relaxed (going texlaxed though). To learn more about Traycee and get tips for ur hair journey(and other things), go to www.k-i-s-s.biz and/or www.youtube.com/KISSseventyseven and/or keepitsimplesista.blogspot.com. Thanks Traycee for being awesome and always helpful, may God continue to bless you as you bless others! :-D

Debt Free Goal

Ok, so I realize that I have 2 main debts that are kinda high that I want to get rid of. I have a student loan that is about $3,500 and a debt from a car accident that is about $2,500. I figured if I try to pay $500 every two weeks (income from my 2nd job) than I could be rid of both debts about the end of this year. However, since life isn't always predictable, I will give myself a goal of 1 year to clear these debts. I have a payment plan set up with the student loan for $100 a month, but I'm not trying to pay on this loan for like, 3 years. #UmNo. So, wish me luck and pray for me. God bless u! :-)

*Save money- I want to save a good amount of money this year so that I will have something to tap into for emergencies
*Grow my hair to WL- I need to keep up with my DCs and my protein treatments
*Get a new car- it doesn't have to be brand new, but working very well so I don't have to worry about it
*Grow Spiritually- Mainly being able to better discern the Holy Spirit's leading
*Go back to school- At least finish my G.E.s
*Clear skin- Rid away all scars and marks
