This is just a quick post to state that I have my 2nd Styling Video the “Ballet Bun” up on YouTube! As always I also have a link here. I also plan on finally writing up my “Normal Regular Bun” tutorial and the “Ballet Bun” tutorial. I am brain storming on how and when I will be doing different styles so I will get there …eventually :D.
It is funny how much more comfortable I am behind a computer screen as opposed to in front of the camera… I still need to work on that.
Anywho… I also recorded my first “Skin Care” video on my Face & Body Scrub so I am editing a few videos at the moment. As soon as something has been loaded up you will be the first to know!
I yet again get to share the exciting news that I have my hair story featured on yet another lovely Blog. This time it is on Ms. Wendy Poindexter’s extremely professional and sophisticated Blog Sass ‘n Curlz! I am in total awe of how fabulous her Blog looks (both in content and images!) Her Blog is so inspiring as she covers a wast amount of information (hair, fashion, makeup, accessories…everything!)
I am very honored to have my story as a little part of her trendy Blog! Click here to go to the story and please do check out Sass ‘N Curlz in its entirety it is well worth it!
I finally wrote the first of my Natural Ingredients list here. I decided to add it to the heading of “Mai Tips – Hair” . What I have done is to include the ingredients I use/have used as well as some of the popular natural ingredients (that I have come across – some of which I have not had the chance to use.) I could not write every single aspect of each ingredient (I already feel like I write toooo much) I would end up writing a book! I basically just gave a very brief sum-up of each ingredient mentioned.
I would love to hear from you especially if you want me to add your favorite ingredient so let me know!
I did it (doing my happy dance)… I made my first styling video! So yes I have my Regular Normal Bun Video up on YouTube. It is nothing fancy at all but I do like to turn to it when I want to do a really really simple protective style or when I do not want to bother doing a big style (especially if it is going to be wash day in the next day or two.) You can watch the Video here.
The tools I use are not really “tools” but regardless: I use a super stretchy hair bubble (without the metal ending), bobby pins and my DIY Spray Leave-In Conditioner.
I should have the write up of the process on my “Buns” page in the next day or two (it really is very easy.)
I just wanted to write a really quick post to say that I have finally loaded up my second Exercise Plan that I made (and am currently using.)
Once again I incorporated my Elliptical Machine but instead of using Fitness Blender (I still LOVE those guys) I added in some cardio and strength training using body weight. Please keep in mind that:

After a few months of doing this (blogging) I realized I was missing something! In some of my DIY mixes I have listed why I use certain ingredients and others I haven’t. Now it gets a bit repetitive if for each individual recipe page I repeat why I use Aloe Vera Juice, Grapeseed Oil etc. SO I have come up with a solution! Write down a list of natural ingredients that I use and why! I will make two separate lists (one for hair and one for skin.) This way there is one location with all the information – name of ingredient, how it can be used, why it is used and so on. I of course use a lot of the same products for both my hair and skin but they have different benefits and nourish in different ways since they target different areas.
I will also do a little research on other natural ingredients you can use for different purposes (because my way is not the ONLY way.) This way I will have a list of not only the ingredients I use but you can refer to a list of other alternatives :)!
