So some of you may or may not remember my post about going natural, (if you're curious what I had to say, go here) recently I cut off all of my relaxed ends (well everything, but my bangs) and at first I was scared to no end, but once I realized there was no turning back and that it was just hair, I started to deal.

All my relaxed edges

Wet poodle fro right after my "BC"

So far it has actually been great! I love that when I workout my hair looks the same all over because it is one texture, I love that I can get my hair wet in the shower when I forget to crab my shower cap and it isn't a problem and I really love that I can officially put my hair in a ponytail!

Me and all my ponytail-ed goodness (:
(excuse my looking a hot mess)

I literally stood in awe for a good 5 minutes today when I put my hair up, I was so happy! Why you ask? For multiple reasons:
1. A ponytail/messy bun was my go to hairstyle in high school, it's nice to have that option back
2. My hair is healthy!
3. I actually stuck with it my natural hair journey for an entire year!
4. I don't have to braid it up every night now

I suppose I really wanted to post this in hoping it'd give someone who just BC-ed (big chopped) or some who is going through transitioning hope. Stick with it! It will be worth it, promise! I transitioned for  year and there were times I just wanted to straighten it, but I am so glad I stuck with it! I can't wait for it to grow more!


I thought I liked my layout, but now not so much. I see everyone else's and they are so cute.


And would someone care to help me? (:

Little Blue Belt

So maybe it is the weight loss, or maybe it is the nice weather, but I have randomly fallen in love with dresses and the belted look! Not only does it create a waist for me that was once lost in the baggy tees and sweatshirts I wore, but it is simple and comfortable. Below are three of my favorite outfits that I have used my little blue belt on and the best part is, the belt was only $10!

I'm baaaackkk!

Untitled #51

Hey all! Happy Memorial Day weekend, I will be traveling to Nashville this weekend supporting my sister and her travel basketball team and even though I wish I was sporting this outfit in NYC with my friend Aaron, I thought some quality family time before heading back to CoMo was probably the right choice.

I love these shoes, though I haven't tried walking in them (I feel like my feelings will change once that happens). And of course Michael Kors is always a good choice and even though it is pretty hot, I'm loving that black is becoming a big part of fashion again, black is the new black again! 

Whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope you enjoy it, who doesn't love 3 day weekends?

Good news....and bad news!

Good news first-I GOT A JOB!

Bad news- I still suck at updating this :(

I'm sorry guys, I really am. I haven't even been on IFB to check my messages and follow new people and pub myself, that's on my long list of things to do.

However, I am going out of town tomorrow and won't have wifi (rough, I know) so posting regularly wills till have to wait.

I'm hoping to start a new segment type thing with this new job, either a what I wore to work type thing or a how I dressed the mannequins.

We'll see.

I got hired as a sales associate at White House | Black Market so I'll get to keep an eye on what women (at least in my area) are wearing, I am so excited! Can't wait to get started and FINALLY make my own money again!

I do have a lot of cute outfits to show you guys though and now that I'm home it is easier to take pictures. I'm gonna shoot for at least one photo shoot before June1 when I head back to Missouri for summer school, deal?
