Summer Hair......

I am really loving my natural hair and I must say that it provides such easy styling...afro,twists or twist out!!!
The twists take me almost 2 hours to do!!! My hands hurt when I am done but the end results are worth it. I can NOT wait until it's longer and won'take as long to do.

I have attached my current twist (protective style) that I am rocking.....

Okay...while they're not the prettiest twists I've seen it works for me!!! hahaha

Oh, and here's a picture of my twist out....

Each look was achieved using Shea Moisture  Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie.

I love my Shea Moisture but I feel as if the second pic looks 

like a Jheri Curl!?!?!?!!

Gone Too Soon.......

I remember the day just like it was yesterday. I heard on the radio that there had been unconfirmed reports of his death. I cried as if he was a family member. I am sure that everyone has memories of growing up and listening to his music. This man was a musical genius, although misunderstood as a person. He sought to make the world a better place through his music. Music is all around us but does it have depth or is just scratching the surface? Many performers/musicians create music but is it something that will be timeless? To me, MJ created timeless music that will continue to live on forever...

Do you remember girl?????

Hey pretty lady with the high heels on...

Stop the pressure......

What's your favorite MJ song?????????

Remain Royal!!!!!!
