New year...Time to get physically fit!!!

Yes I said it... It's time to get physically fit. We failed our very first fitness challenge miserably. I hate to fail at anything point blank period. So I have been contemplating doing a fitness challenge. I wasn't set on a start date but I know I wanted it to occur after January. Why January???? Well that's when most people usually lose momentum for keeping their New Years resolutions and quit by February. For those of you who know me know I do not believe in " New Year's" resolutions. If you want to make a change make it "NOW". Why wait until the horizon of a new year to make a change. It wasn't until my good friend hit me up over the weekend about doing a fitness challenge for the next 3 months (February 3rd -April 3rd).





 You know I had to jump on the opportunity and share with my fellow readers. We want to encourage you to join us. Our fitness challenge kicks of this Monday. Let's get this beach body early!!!!! Stay tuned for our progess over the next 3 months.

 I have been wanting to do a fitness challenge. But my crazy schedule wouldn't allow for me to do one. So, I kept putting it off and making excuses why I didn't have the time to do a fitness challenge. Until I completely forgot about it.

Protective styles challenge update week 1-5

It has been quite a crazy hectic week for me. I have been playing doctor to a sick household and working. So you know that equals little to no sleep. I hope everyone who decided to participate. In the protective styles challenge is having a good experience. If you have been checking out our IG or twitter. You would know that we decided to install Marley twists for this challenge. Since I am "special" when it comes to doing braided extensions.  Coco does all of my braided extensions.  Initially I was going to get box braids. Coco was going to be the only one with Marley twists. The beauty supply store associate and Coco convinced me to step out of my comfort zone. So I decided to give Marley twists a  try. We purchased this type of Marley hair for $7.99 a pack.

                                    


Protective style challenge update week 6-7

   Good afternoon readers, I hope all is well we have completed finally completed our protective styles challenge and updating you on has happened throughout the duration of the challenge. This update is for what occurred during the 6th and 7th week of our protective styles challenge. If you checked out our previous update post for the protective styles challenge. You will remember my irritation with frizz beginning to peek from my twists. Well it's offical now the frizz monster has made it return(grrrr...). I have tried to retwist these bad boys but they are not coming out right and my little sis Coco isn't on break yet. So I have taken the Marley twists out. At least I was able to make this style last for 5 weeks frizz free. Before the frizz really started to show up during week 6 of our challenge.  



 
At the  end of the sixth week, I took my Marley twist out. Then deep conditioned my hair with olive oil and coconut milk. As you can see I struggle with frizz and I find It very annoying . If any of you know of ways to fight frizz please let me know.




I headed to the beauty supply store to figure out what protective style to rock next. I decided I was going to rock a wig. Now I know that a lot of naturals feel some type of way about other naturals who rock weaves and wigs. Now here is my personal option, as long as you wear your own natural hair and do not use wigs and weaves to hide your natural hair. I really don't care it's your hair and your choice how you want to rock it. There is nothing wrong with switching it up as long a you are comfortable in your own skin as a natural. But I didn't know what kind of wig I wanted to purchase for myself. After trying on various wigs, I  ended up choosing something a bit out of my comfort zone.  But overall I like the wig I chose and will have fun rocking it.
