Thinking Out Loud Thursday *26*

I just started to catch up on breaking bad and OMG.

First off I cant even deal with Jessie's stupid ass. He is just ruining it all!! If it had of been me I would have taken the money and gone as far away as I possibly could. And it I was Walt I would have cut Jessie out long, long ago. The boy has done so much dumb shit throughout the entire show, I cant stand it!

Hank is a horrible human being. I couldn't stand him from the start. Took him long enough to figure it all out. I cant wait to see how this all plays out... LoL

 The Hair
I really need to take down and re sew my hair soon. My front is loosening up quite a bit and its starting not to look as great as it did a few weeks ago. I love that even though its loosening up, it actually is still pretty wearable.

I have been looking at new hair and have pretty much decided on what I want to buy for my next style. I am not going to be purchasing until maybe end of Sept or Oct because I am still planning on wearing the Blonde till then.

I actually just might wear my hair out for a little while between styles. I haven't done that in quite some time, so it should be good.

Tech Kick!!

I have been on a huge tech kick as of lately. I recently bought the HTC One which I LOVE! I also bought the Nexus 7 literally the day before they announced the second edition. By the way I loves my Nexus 7 as well!!

I actually want to get the newer Nexus as well just so I can have both. Give the old one to the babies because they play with it all the time as it is.

I am looking at a few DSLR cameras that I want to buy soon as well. The one I decided on after all my research was the Sony A58. It basically has all the features that I am looking for. It has a large enough sensor, 20mp, and a great selection of lenses. I fell in love with Sony cameras after buying the camera I use to record my videos, and I definitely think its time to upgrade.

My websites

I am in the process of beginning to revamp my websites! I am contemplating on taking BeautyandtheBabies  off of blogger and self hosting. I think that will make it a little more user friendly. So I will be designing a new layout for my site and it will be up sooner rather than later I hope. My only grip is that Blogger is not available to those who want to self host. I would rather not use WordPress. I have tried in the past, and I like Blogger much better.

Hair Diary *25* - Part Close up & more Rambles

I changed up my part and the way I sewed down the hair. It felt so good to finally be able to really clean my hair underneath the weave. I didnt realize how bad it gets under there. I guess I am just too used to washing my hair every 2 days.

I show a close up of part in this video as requested. I did it this way for several reasons. 

The first reason was that I could not find a closure in the same texture hair that I actually liked. 

Second reason was that I refuse to wear my natural hair out when wearing a weave.

Third reason was I got a little lazy, and I dont particularly mind having a weave that does not look completely natural. Only when people are close up to it, do they even notice the part. Aint nobody checking my head like that... lol (and if they are they need to back off... )

My next weave I am planning on doing another Beyonce inspired style and I will be using a closure. I am planning on trying another vendor who seems to have good reviews and quality. From the pics the hair looks awesome. Im going to see if they can do a custom piece for me.

But that wont be for another couple of months. Will be keeping this in for a while longer. :)

Hair Diary *24* - Workouts & Braid Patterns

I had my hair sewed down all the way around last time because It was a little less maintenance. However, since I have been working out a lot doing my Insanity this was not really a good idea. Over time since I really couldnt get to my scalp good enough to wash it my hair underneath got really icky.

I took it down and washed it with Suave Humectant shampoo both my hair and the weave. I have to say it was quite disgusting. I absolutely hate having dirty hair and washing it was much much needed.

After washing I did deep condition and rebraid the hair as you can see above.

The anchor braids go all the way around the perimeter of my head and the rest basically go straight back.

My hair is pretty short right now so my braids even though they are chunky they are not very lumpy. If your hair is thicker or longer make your braids smaller to compensate.

I have come to realize that I am horrible at taking pictures right away! Which is very strange since I claim to be a "Blogger"... LoL

I also have not been very good about keeping up with my blog posts. I feel like I have had very little time but I am trying to fit everything in so I can keep my channel alive.

I want to thank everyone who watches and reads for your continued support!! I love you all!!!

Thinking Out Loud Thursday *25* - Rambles...

Absolutely horrible about keeping up with everything from the blog to my Youtube channel. I will be typing up a full blog post for the Beyonce Hair series since I havent done so just yet.

The Hair
I have had the blonde in for quite some time and I absolutely love it!

I am actually thinking on keeping my hair this color indefinitely. I want to get a good closure and redo the wig itself. If I do actually find a good closure I will.

I saw some really nice body wave type hair from a different vendor that I actually do want to try out in the near future. Near future will probably be like 3 months from now. lol

I wonder if this hair that I have in now will hold up for that long. I mean it has done beautifully so far and it is coming up on 2 months for this hair. I really want to just keep this style in indefinitely! Knowing me I will be changing it up in a few months though.

But right now its good because its easy and for the most part quick. I dont really have to worry about how my hair looks as long as I have a little water around. When I get frizz I just smooth them right down with water. No product necessary.

I have had one bad hair day, and that was only because I was running late and literally had to roll out of the bed. No water, conditioner, or brush in sight. I ended up braiding the hair up that day.

My longest layer this time is 20". Next time I do want to go longer, maybe 24". 3 Bundles were just fine for me but I might do 4 next time or 3 and a closure.

Plus next time I think I will do dark hair in the beginning and then gradually change up the style by lightening the hair each month or so until I get back to the same-ish color that I have in now. 

Did I say I love this color on myself.....


Beyonce Hair to the Fullest!!!

In Life
I feel like I havnet had a day off in months. Always on the go. Never have time anymore to do the things that I would like to do. But its fine because we all have to work towards our goals to get where we want to be later in life. 

I have taken a long break from watching the news since the zimmerman verdict... Which was absolute bullshit. Add to the fact that they are staging accidents so he can look better in the public eye. Piece of shit.

I have been semi keeping up with my Insanity. Been doing it every 3 days or so. I am almost done with the first 30 days after 2 months.LOL 

Hey at least I'm making progress... I have 4 workouts left, then on to the next month!! WooHoo

After I am done with those, I am going to skip the recovery week. No need for me to do those in my opinion. So, I will be going straight into the Max interval series of workouts! I am dreading it!! OMG
