Relaxer Update | New Cut and Hair Update

Hii my beauties and dudes.

I got some news for you, I did another cut again. Yes, I know things are a bit confusing. This whole year with my hair was confusing, especially since I wasn't blogging that much to fill you guys in. I was gonna post some of the relaxer updates you missed, but I decided to scratch that. But basically I was still struggling with the thinning. I do have fine hair. but since last year September my hair was thinning and I could not figure out why. So I went from almost Bra Strap Length to Shoulder Length then to Armpit Length then to Shoulder Length again, then now to above Shoulder Length. It's been a crazy year, but now I'm hoping I'll have control of things again.

If you follow me on instagram, which you really should be doing, link 
here, you would've seen a pic of my recent relaxer already.

Bunnin' It

Hii dumplings (: Most of my wash days been like the same since the start of summer. BUNS. BUNS. BUNS & BUNS. I've done mostly high buns, I just really can't stand the heat to let down my own hair. I'm still recovery from this set back I've been having and I did decide to cut some more of my hair. So I'm like a lil past shoulder length now, and honestly I'm OKAY. This setback made me learn a lot actually about my hair. I won't speak too much regarding that, cause I will be doing a hair update sometime in August about the whole experience. 

I'm 8 weeks post now, and the new growth is present

My previous wash day went like this:

1. Added oil mix (coconut oil, jbco, red pimento oil & rosemary oil) to scalp, and some coconut oil to my hair overnight without using a cap.

2. Shampooed with Straight from Eden Hydrating Shampoo

Why Do We Still Remain Lost?

I was actually scrolling through my google+ when I found this picture. I immediately got inspired to come to you guys and write a quick post regarding this.

So my first thought was that obviously if I can swim, I would not allow myself to drown. And in turn, if I know God and know all the riches and treasures He has for me after this life, why then am I still straying?

Why I Stopped Trying To Fit In

Hii lovelies :). 

The verse that inspired me to write this post was “Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” — 2 Timothy 3:12.

I remember as a teenager well I'm still a teenager lol. When I was younger before I was a Christian I would try so hard to fit in. I mean I had friends but some of those friends, I don't even know why we were friends to be honest because we were so different.

Easy Cheesy Recipe | White Cheddar Cheese Baked Spaghetti

Hii loves, toady I'll be sharing my recipe on how I make my special baked spaghetti. Its super duper easy, and the wash up is moderate. I just hate having a lot of dishes to wash up after I'm done preparing my meal, don't you? Well lets get into the ingredients (:

The ingredients are basically everyday items you can find in your kitchen, and you can use your own choice of cheese. I find that the white cheddar goes great with the spaghetti, and ensure you buy an all natural cheese. The processed ones won't melt well and will give a rubbery taste.

Ampro Silk Edges Review


The ampro silk edges is consistency is like a cross between gel and ORS edge control. It's not as stiff as the edge control but not at runny as gel.
I did like this product it did leave my edges with a soft hold and it did not leave

Only Few Will Actually Get To Heaven

Hii loves, from the title already you can probably figure where this post is going to go.
My inspiration actually came from Matthew 7 vs 13-14, the NIV (New International Version) reads, "enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only few find it."

So first quick question, do you think you'll be going to heaven?

You might be hesitant, cause I was too. At the time when I actually read this verse, I was more committed to becoming a better Christian. But before I don't think I would've made it at all, because I kinda had lost my way.

So without getting into too much stories right now, I basically became lost within the world. I was looking to more worldly things after a while, and following what everyone was doing. But I realized a while back that just because everyone is doing it, doesn't mean its cool with God.

Best Products for Regrowing your Edges- Part 4

I know Part 4 was a bit late guys, totally sorry. But there's no time like now lol. So I've assembled a few products that can help regrow edges, hairline, temple and/or nape. These are:

1. Jamaican Black Castor Oil
Jamaican black castor oil is another popular hair product in the business and does come through for us. This is why its a very useful oil when growing new follicles. It helps to stimulate the scalp when massaged in, and promotes new hair to sprout. This is especially great for thinning edges, to help get those follicles popping. I still do have a bottle in my arsenal, and I use it in conjunction to other products to maintain my hairline. Do opt for brands that have castor oil listed first in the ingredients list, or just buy an all natural 100% castor oil. Such brands are: Tropic Isle Living, Eyl and Sunny Isle.

Shauna's Fitness Journey

Hey everyone, it has been forever since Abby and I blogged but we're here for good now. Well since I'm on summer break now one of my main summer goals was to start a health and fitness journey. So good so far.

Diet, Fitness Routine

 I'm not on any diet I just eat less and make healthier choices. In terms of exercising I exercise 10 mins a day cause that's all I can take don't judge me lol. In time I will increase the duration. I try to exercise 5 times a week but I'm lazy so I do 3x the least. I use apps like best butt fitness and Sworkit Lite - workout trainer

Abbii's Fitness Jounrey

Heyy beautiful people, my routine is a bit different than the average person I think. Instead of losing weight, I would like to gain weight....does that seem weird? lol. Well for me, I don't know if genetics has anything to with it, cause I do have a high metabolic rate. But I'm certain that when I'm stressed I do tend to lose weight. I usually gain weight in the summer when I'm off break from school, but when I go back to school my eating patterns get whack, and the added stress causing my weight to plummet down. 

This summer however, I've devised a plan to eat better and work out to achieve more desirable results. This means I eat healthy fats and foods with high proteins, while doing weight training exercises.
