I have a little secret, I am not the biggest fan of ice cream. I know, I know seems strange right? My daughters love ice cream but me, I can take it or leave it. I am however a huge fan of popsicles. I will eat an entire box if you let me. At one point I was eating three freeze pops a night. I am so not ashamed lol, they were amazing. One thing I have come to love is how great ice cream can be on a hot summer day. It melts fast but its a wonderful treat and a perfect outing for me and my family.VIEW POST
Lately, I have been so inspired to create more content for my Instagram and here on my blog. Have you ever just felt a surge of energy that you can explain? That’s how I have been feeling for the past two weeks and I’m extremely excited about it. Although my schedule over the next month is going to be absolutely insane I am embracing all of the wonderful opportunities that have come my way. There is a saying that if you love what you do you will never work again. I wholeheartedly agree with this statement as my work is also a passion of mine.VIEW POST
Isn’t change good? I have become very optimistic these last few months. With that, I have learned that change can be very scary but it also opens you up to opportunities that you otherwise would not have thought of. As many of you may know here in the state of New Jersey we were mandated to close all non-essential businesses for the past few months. Included in those businesses was my hair salon and it greatly impacted me and my family. My instinct is to always go into survival mode and find ways to offset the lack of income I wouldn’t be receiving and find ways to supplement my income. I have always been a hustler by nature and so the idea of using resources that I had at my disposal was very natural to me. What I wasn’t prepared for was the stress and anxiety this left me with.VIEW POST
Surprise! Guess who wrote a book? Me, I’m officially an AUTHOR! Girl Yes! The amount of joy in my heart is so over whelming it took me two days to sit down and actually write this post. Honestly, I can’t sit still and per usual my brain in running on jet fuel. I can hardly contain myself. Many of you would be shocked at the fact that writing has never been my strong suit. In fact, in school I was never known as a writer. I focused more on my creative attributes than actual class work. So, to see everything come full circle for me is truly a blessing. I couldn’t have imagined this if you gave me a magical glass ball. If you would have asked me a year ago if I would ever write a book I promise you I would have laughed. I mean laughed HARD.VIEW POST
The countdown has begun. In 60 days I will be stepping on stage representing my hometown of Trenton, New Jersey in the Mrs. New Jersey America pageant. It is an extreme honor to represent the city where I was born and raised. Although I am new to pageantry it has been very fulfilling so far. Pageantry has given me the opportunity to dig deep within myself and rediscover who I am as a wife, mother and woman. Today I would like to share a bit of my process with you as I continue on my journey to the Mrs. America stage. Doing my pageant preparation one of the most important things that I wanted to accomplish was to be purposeful in why I wanted to represent New Jersey at next Mrs America.VIEW POST
So where have I been? Honestly you guys I have really been in the house doing a lot of revising and reflecting on my business and my personal life. There has been so much changing in my life since this pandemic has started and this was the perfect opportunity for me to get some things in order. Since we have been in a pandemic I have been able to not only organize my home but organize my various businesses and personal responsibilities. I have also become a full-time teacher to my two daughters since schools have closed during this time.VIEW POST
I have plenty of hair growth secrets to share. Rice Water being one of them. You see, rice water is a great way to add strength and shine to the hair without weighting it down. It’s also a wonderful treatment to use before washing the hair. Today I am going to show you how I make my rice water and share a few tips on how I apply it. Be sure to watch my video tutorial in its entirety so you miss any steps.
Rice Water Tips:
- I let my rice water sit for 7days before I use it.
- I apply citrus to my rice water for smell and to lower the PH of the rice water.
- Essential oils are also used for easy application and detangling of the hair.
- I leave the rice water on my hair for 20 minutes.
- I only use white rice. No not use instant rice as most of the nutrients have already been removed from this type of rice.
