Natural Hair: My Journey

I've been natural for over 4 years now and I'm happy I made the change years ago.   Now I won't say it hasn't been without trial and error (still is), I'm still trying to figure out the right combination of products that work well on my hair.  My hair tends to get dry and frizzy really easy, so it's a real battle trying to keep my curls looking moisturized.

From last week (Friday) and I love how my curls are right here, this was a good hair day!!

Rocking my Faux Hawk and I love it!!

Embracing Me: Weight Loss Journey

I've never been the one to really talk about my weight, because I've battled with my it for as long as I can remember.  Starting back when I was in the 7th grade going into the 8th grade is when I really started worrying about the weight.  All through high school up until the end of my Junior year I struggled and it wasn't until I was getting ready to go into my Senior year that I decide to do something. I lost the weight, not in a healthy way but I was desperate and wanted it off quick.  I went from a size 20 to about a size 12 in a few months and at the time I was pretty satisfied. 

For years I was on the smaller side of a size 12 (almost a 10).  I keep it off until I got pregnant with my son (even though I was smaller than I am now after I had my son), from there I started putting the back on weight.  I found it harder and harder to want to work out being a working mom so my working out really slowed down to none and my eating got off track too.

Eventually I started back trying to lose weight and get my eating on track. I tried alot of strict diets, diet pills, gave up red meat and pork (still do that, only eat lean pork ever so often) but I failed.   Working out wasn't anymore successful because even though I wanted to get the weight off, my mindset about it didn't change.  When the weight wasn't coming off fast enough I gave up.  When I felt too restricted in what I could eat, I fell off.

Music To My Ears: Tank

Am I the only one that has missed really good solid R&B music?!?!  You have some artist out there that still sing it and have put out albums but they don't get the mainstream airplay they should.  You hardly hear any of their new music unless you stay up on certain websites, watch certain music shows or have a really good radio station (something we really lack here in Atlanta) that plays real R&B or even Satellite radio.  I have found while listening to Satellite radio there is some really great music out there that the masses never hear!!

So it was to my surprise when I found out a several weeks back that one of my favorite singers Tank was getting ready to drop a new album, yes soooooo excited.  I follow him on Instagram and he started promoting his new single "You're My Star" boy was I happy to hear it.  The groove on this song is infectious and will have your bobbing your heading, snapping your fingers and tapping your foot.  Then Tank's voice, love that man's voice, he's one many of the underrated crooners of our time (at least I think so).

Anywho if you haven't heard his new song "You're My Star" peep the video and enjoy!!   Oh and don't groove too hard!! ;-)  The full album entitled "Stronger" (wish is a great song too, find it on youtube) will be available August 15th 2014.

That is all for now, hope everyone is having a great one!!
