I'll be discussing split ends, green drinks, chlorophyll, ballon twisting, and my other busisness ( spellcheck?)
Make sure your light shines the brightest.

This morning I ran into a neighbor, she is a very sweet woman who has a little girl Bings age. Our girls have a developed a friendship that matches mine and one of best friends. I live in a "middle class" neighbor hood. Everyone has at least two vehicles, and most houses are occupied by couples who seem "perfect". Now we all know that everything is not what it seems and looks are deceiving right? My neighbor told me about a service offered by an agency that assists with holidays. Should I have been offended by this? Maybe look at her sideways and tell her in my most snobbish voice that I am covered , thanks but no thanks?.
I genuinely felt gratitude, I felt privileged that she would reveal a bit of her struggle to assist with any part of my life. We barely know each other and she was so humble about herself to extend assistance. Small things like this make me remember that there are good people in the world, how many of us are blessed to meet a kind hearted person randomly? She couldn't believe that I braided Bings hair, I offered to braid her daughter's hair for her. She told me she would pay me - I declined.
Crew, what are your thoughts on this? Have you any stories to share?
Revisit your blueprint everyday,

I finished Bings hair last night... and lil bits :-) I am proud of myself. This is no task easily accomplished not to mention I spent the entire day doing it. Quick breakdown of Bings hair
Detangled prior to washing, 6 big braids
diluted castille soap, scrubbing the scalp, she had a bad dandruff buildup as it been about a month since her last wash.
I rinsed out each section and applied a quick 2 minute aphogee treatment to each braid, actually it was more like 7 minutes, then I put a generous amount of Aussie in each braid. I mushed it and mushed it through then rinsed each braid out and combed it again under the running water.
I blowdried each section on a medium heat, took a deep breath and then started to braid.
Ok cool, now lil bit's hair isn't as much "work" to do. Bing's hair is 4b and heavy. Lil Bit's is maybe a 3b, so while her's is longer than her sister's it is not as thick and taked maybe half the time to. I pretty much did the same thing with her hair, only I didn't detangle prior to washing.
Although she wanted the same style as her older sister, I apologized deeply to her and told her that Bing had a big girl style and when she turned 8 she could get the same thing ( Betwixt you and I, I was not about to do all of those braids in her hair at 9 oclock at night!).
NOTE:I am posting pics of Bings hair. I should not have to say this but, * Do not steal my shit, Especially pics of girls, I swear I'll put u on blast across every muh fuggin board and get my Aunty from up inna de country to boil sum bush fi yu! *
Now, Im also posting a pic of my latest do, I had it done about two weeks ago, I am getting tired of it, but the beauty of braids is not having to do it :-)
Be easy on me, I'm on a mission to take off these 30 pounds. 200 is a good look for me, still thick just not so jelly ish
Oh, Mister brought me a Montell Williams ~emulsifier~ Health master. I am big on green smoothies and raw food. I really wanted a vita mix blender but beggers can't be choosers. It's supposed to come in about two weeks. I'll update you all on that one.
last thing, I stayed home from work today, Lil Bit has a fever, so I'll post a few things today and plan on making some earrings.
Art is good for the soul,

- I am a serious procrastinator who has to force herself to write a daily list of what needs to be done.
- It is hair day, for those who do not know, this is common ritual in most "folks" home, Detangling washing, combing, plaiting, braiding and for the special occasion pressing. This is a time consuming process as I have two girls with hair to spare.
- I want to do my own hair, I am natural with about five n a half inches of hair on my head, I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but I have to be fly with mine.
- Cleaning up, I can't stand dirt, straight up. I need to constantly clean.
As soon as I get a few good pics, I'm going to start uploading pics, I was a bit buzzed at a special someone this morning, had me feeling a way. LOL ladies, stress is not cool. Remember to always let it roll of your shoulders. Whatever it is, if you cant fix it right this minute, makes no friggin sense to let it ruin your day.
My hair arsenol for the girls. CONDITONER! Lots of it! I don't stray from cones as I should. One of the best cheapie conditioners that I've recently fell in love with is Aussie moist- it provides theeee best slip, comes with a pump and was only five bucks for the HUGE bottle. We go through this in about a week and half. I honestly need to deep condition Bing's hair, I've noticed its breaking a bit. I promised the girls that they would get braids this weekend. This is like promising them a pony, It is doable but its gonna take a while. I brought the beads and rubberbands, it's just to actually do it now.
On a side note, I have a very tiny fishtank with two goldfish - compliments of my dad. I dislike gold fish as pet's. They shit to much. Mister changed the filter and the water about two weeks ago, that damn tank looks gross already. I am ready to fry those suckers I swear ( but of course I would never do that My babies would have a fit)
