Updates, updates, updates!

Well, only two updates for you this week: my Accidental Spending Fast and the Hairlista Healthy Ends Challenge. On the spending fast tip: the Hubby and I got through January pretty well. I wasn’t able to save as much as I would have liked because I made many unplanned charity donations in January. Alas, these…

Doing the ‘do – Just because

Just because my hair was looking particularly cute today and I don’t have a dang thing to do this cold January night, I’ve decided to post some pictures of my ‘do. You’ve seen this one before — I just added some hair jewellery. The same jewellery that I wore on Tuesday when I was trying…

When a good hair ‘do goes bad… – Part 2

Good morning, y’all! Yesterday, I was in a tizzy trying to figure out what the heck to do with my hair. I had rocked a cute twisted/flat twisted updo for about a week and the style had reached its limit. I was a hot, fuzzy mess. Some folks here and on Facebook thought I should…

When a good hair ‘do goes bad…

I wish I had a picture to show you. Last week, I created a somewhat intricate style for myself. Well, it’s not that intricate, but it did take more time than normal. I have flat twists around my head and then twists that I corkscrew in the middle. Picture it, folks! It was really cute……

Doing the ‘do: Twist out

Hey all! I haven’t been doing twist outs since I had my kinky twists put in in October. Last week, I wore my accidental protective style: two strand twists put into bantu knots and worn curly. On Friday evening, I decided to unravel my twists. Boy, lemme tell you! My hair looked HAWT! And it’s…

Doing the do’: Party hair

Last night, the Hubby, a bunch of friends and I decided to brave the -18C weather and head to midtown Toronto for a party for one of my sister-in-law’s friends, who happens to be a party promoter. I must admit, his parties are the most fun and safe and least pretentious that I’ve been to….

Doing the ‘do: Holiday hair

The holidays are over. Sigh. I’m a little sad to tell you the truth – I love Christmastime. I’m not a big fan of New Year’s Eve, but I was out celebrating with family and friends. So, my readers, what did I do with my hair? Well, I thought that I’d be in wigs for…

Doing the ‘do: Introducing Korina

My twists are out. Woo hoo! Don’t get me wrong – I enjoyed them very much, but I get bored with my hair very quickly. So, I loved my twists for the first few weeks, but by week five, something had to change. I lasted seven weeks – that’s a record for me – and…

Hairlista’s Healthy Ends challenge update

It’s been a while since I’ve updated you on my Hairlista’s Healthy Ends Challenge. It’s 10 weeks in and I’m doing OK. On some fronts (daily moisturizing) I could be doing a lot better, but I’m making a valiant effort. My kinky twists are six weeks old. It’s been six weeks since I’ve played with…

Missing my hair

I knew this was going to happen. I was counting down the days until I got my hair twisted in my first protective style of the fall/winter season… but now, I’m totally missing my hair. If I want my hair to stay healthy and strong during the cold months, I know that I have to…
