Finally... A Skin Care Regimen That Works!

Hello Stylish Beauties!

I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far. We are experience very humid, gloomy weather over here in NYC but I'm making the best of it and getting some work done at home.

Today I wanted to share my skin care regimen with everyone. It has really been a long journey trying to find the right products for my skin. I have very dry skin and it is also very sensitive. I breakout very easily which can be annoying. So I am very happy that I have found a skin care regimen that actually works for me.

Evening Routine (Daily)
Weekly (Every Sunday)
Now it's time for me to find a regimen that works for my hair!

What's your skin care regimen?

Curl Crush: Princess S.

Hello Stylish Beauties!

Today I would like to share with you my BIGGEST curly hair/ natural hair crush! This person inspires me everyday to take care of my natural hair.  She makes this journey of self discovery much more easier and so much fun. She's full of energy and has a great sense of humor and guess what... she's only 3!

Her name is Princess S. My loving, beautiful toddler!

She fills my day with  lots of hugs and kisses but when it comes to her hair she'll say "Mommy I love you but don't touch my twist!". :-)

Scrolling Down Big Chop Lane...

"I'm so comfortable in the skin I'm in, I'm secure about who I am!" *singing*

I tell you self- love is the best love!

Hello Stylish Beauties! Hello June!

Ahhh... It's finally June! I am so excited for this Summer. I have lots of exciting plans, including getting lots of sleep. :-)

However, one of the main things that I am looking forward to is... my ONE YEAR NATURAL HAIR ANNIVERSARY!!! Yes! I am so excited, July 22nd can not come fast enough. So as I begin to prepare for that I decided to take a trip down big chop lane. *Tears*  Precious memories...

I remember my big chop like it was yesterday...

It was a scorching hot NYC day. July 22, 2011 to be exact. I was going through what I considered a hair crisis at the time because I had cut my hair in a short hairstyle in December 2010 and it was starting to grow out more and more. I just couldn't keep up with it anymore. It was still too short to really style and even though I loved the cut during the winter days, once it got warm I found myself going through the ultimate perm and flat iron stage. I was trying to do whatever it took to keep my hair straight so it could look decent.

I was beginning to get very frustrated with my hair and I knew I really wanted a change. It was time for a change! On this particular morning I woke up and looked at my hair refusing to have to deal with it another day. I was angry at the thought of not being able to do much with it. It had already been about two months since my last perm, so, I knew I had to do something fast. I quickly logged on YouTube searching for videos on "how to do a Rhianna style haircut at home". I had no intentions on going natural! At that time I did not even know what the term "going natural" meant. I just knew I wanted something very different. As I was searching I came across various videos from women across the world, but, none seem to be what I was looking for.

Then after about an hour of searching I came across a video of a women doing her own big chop (BC) at home. This video gave me the motivation I needed to get that different look. I watched the video about five times, paying close attention to how she cut her hair. Then I logged off of YouTube. I went straight to the bathroom, found my barber scissors and took a deep breath. I started cutting and cutting and cutting until I was satisfied. Talk about a weight being lifted off your shoulders... this was a MAJOR one! It's really amazing what a haircut can do.

After I finished cutting I sprayed my hair with water and stared into the mirror, touching my hair over and over for about five minutes. I did not know what I really did or how I was going to feel the next day. All I can say is at that very moment... I FELT SO, SO GOOD!

I could not agree more with American writer and self- improvement coach Dale Carnegie. A smile is a way of stealing the show without doing much of anything else.
