Natural Hair Week In Review

My transformation story has been 3 years in the making. ¬†I’m a runner. I won my first trophy at 8 years old. I ran Cross Country in high school and ran on my own in college. Right after college, I became a mom, three times over, back to back to back. ¬†Hence, the pic on the left. ¬†In 2013, my life flipped like a pancake. ¬†My husband and I¬†decided that we had given our marriage all that we had, but it was not working. So we separated. One morning, I was about to have my daily pity party but I made up in my mind that ‘If I have the time to lie around¬†thinking about what could’ve, should’ve, would’ve, then I have the time to put my shoes on and start walking….the pic of the right.

So this is the new me! I dropped 70 pounds but I didn’t lose my love for food. ¬† I run three to four times a week in¬†training for my first marathon. ¬†My family is my heartbeat and my ultimate dream is to be a Fly Granny. Yes, grandmother! I have a while until that time, so until¬†my grandbabies get here I’ll be doing all that I can to make sure that their granny is healthy, fit and fabulous!

In Other Words, You Can’t Cook

….That was the response from one of my students when I explained¬†to the class that learning¬†a foreign language is like cooking, you get better with practice.

However blunt my student may have been, she was right. ¬†I can¬īt cook. I enjoy it, I mess it up sometimes, I appreciate how it brings people together, but really, I can’t cook.

I’ve learned a lot¬†from my culinary flops…like you don’t have to add a whole lot of water to¬†a pot of¬†cabbage. Or, don’t add all of the cheese sauce at once to macaroni and cheese.

We all make mistakes. ¬†MyNaturalSistas shares some of the hiccups that¬†she’s made on her natural hair journey……using too much heat and skipping her¬†moisturizing routine.¬† She encourages us to share our own mistakes in order to help one another. ¬†Enjoy!

A Little Bit Goes A Long Way #theChicNatural

I have figured out that it doesn’t take a whole lot of planning to have a good time. ¬†A few years ago, I discovered from our Friday Night Family Fish Fries that if you mix food, music and family, you’ve got a party! ¬†What I didn’t know at the time is that teenagers are just as content with the same ingredients.

For Spring Break, I had a very detailed agenda planned for my kids¬†and their cousins who were visiting from Louisiana. ¬†They were scheduled to visit a¬†different place everyday. But they had¬†their own agenda…..¬†wrestling matches on the basement floor, ¬†bike rides to the basketball court, sitting around the kitchen table reminiscing, ¬†cousin sleepovers, climbing¬†Stone Mountain together, ¬†Xbox competitions, going to church. Their spontaneous, simple moments¬†did not need a plan.

The Chic Natural shares her easy wash day routine using Aussie Moist Shampoo, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner and just a little bit of One n Only Argan Oil. Her method seems stress free and the end result is beautiful! Hope you enjoy and Happy Washing!
