It's hotter than fish grease outside.

Man, blog fam it has been so miserable and hot these days. I know it is well into summer and I should be used to this but I am not used to this heat. I am working out 4 to 5 days a week sweating up a storm and all I can do to my hair is a pony tail. It is getting a little old now and I am starting to long for the days when I had my low cut.

I so loved this maintenance free look. I really rocked this look and I am getting that itch again. With the new weight loss I am wanting to show my face a little more. I think I am going to wait until my second child to chop it off though. If I suffer from the hair loss like before with my son I will have no problem chopping it off and rocking this till the end. All I ever had to do is make sure my eyebrows were arched, my lip gloss was popping, and to drink plenty of water for clear skin. This photo here was no make up and only some Oh Baby (MAC) and lip liner. *sigh* I miss those days.

New cut for both of us.

Hey Blog Fam!

I have been so busy with the JOB, family, and Hair that it has been impossible to get myself together enough to post pics. First off I trimmed the hair some more. It was getting so heavy, so trimmed it to just past my shoulders. I also trimmed the baby fat. Yes indeed your girl is in a good size 12 now after one year of hard work and determination. I CUT baby boy's hair. I couldn't keep up with the 2 hour sessions every Sunday with him and his hair. He is so happy with it. He goes to the barbershop with his daddy every two weeks and he sits all by himself for his cut. Such a big boy.

Gone but I will be back

Life has definitely been busy...to say the least. I plan to post some new pics of the hair soon. My hair line has grown back since the baby. My son got his first hair cut...YAY! The workouts have been consistent every week. Hair business is good and steady.

I will return with more.

Happy New Year! Out with 2010 and Hello 2011

Hey Blog Fam!

Happy New Year! Introducing my newest client...my son CJ. Look at all of that hair. He is very particular about his hair too. 9 month old loves to touch his hair but don't want me or anyone else near his hair...PERIOD!! He loves for me to lean him back in the sink and wash his hair and condition it but after that treatment is over he is not having it. Well, I just received my order of Oyin with a 8oz of Whipped Pudding, 2 orders of Greg Juice, and Go Tea (for the hubby). That Whipped pudding came in handy today. After washing that massive afro I applied some Oyin Honey Hemp conditioner and rinsed. I dried that afro and massaged some Whipped Pudding in. I took his baby brush and brushed it to the tips. Once he was sleep I began semi parting with a comb and my fingers and plaited his hair up. As you can see his hair is EXTRA curly and I can't braided it all the way to the ends because it just slips out of my fingers so I let it curl up. He loves it! He can't stop touching and twirling it. He can't take the cornrolls so I will just do this once a week. He is more high maintenance than my own locs which have grown. The edges where I lost some hair due to hormones have grown back. The layers are growing out and it is just long and full. I love it but with my hair and his hair...MAN what a weekend.

I have a full time job now and it is not as stressful and I am making progress there. My skills and experience are definitely acknowledge. Plus to add to that the company will be moving to my county so that commute time will be cute down by atleast 20 to 30 minutes. YES! I can take all street if I want. I took a pay cut but what I have learned is with more money comes more responsibility and expectations. Right now I am more focused on my family than the career.

I lost the baby weight now I am where I started and I need to lose 15 to 20 to be healthier. It is definitely hard to go to work, pick up the baby, and try to fit in a workout. So today I went shopping for a new chic lunch bag, salad and lunch to go containers. I also invested in a good 6" Chef Knife for my everyday kitchen needs. I also purchased a slicer. I plan to do a 10 day detox where I am going to focus on eating fruits and veggies mostly raw with beans and protein shakes for my protein intake. No excuses! I have a treadmill, p90x, Tae Bo, weights, and all kinds of equipment in my basement so I should be all set. I still will try to get to the gym maybe 2 times a week when my hubby is home so he can get the baby. It all goes down TOMORROW! I have Monday off so I am going to do my first day of detox tomorrow.
