This Has Kept Me Exercising Consistently for the Last Three Years

Three years ago I made a decision that really changed the game for my fitness and health.  I cannot believe I have kept it going this long, but now it has become a routine; a part of me. I have gone through several cycles of -  weight gain, exercise, eat better, see results, fall off the wagon, weight gain.  I have finally found something that has kept me on my toes and kept me accountable, I've made amazing friends to help push me along the way. The workouts alone definitely did not do it for me. The hard part is eating the right amounts of the right stuff.

So what is it that has gotten me on my game? That has me striving to be my best me, to be better than i was the last time? I'm sure you've herd of it, and I know there are some people who have some mixed feelings about it. Three years ago, in March/April 2016

Tea Rinsing Not Working? Try Drinking It....Benefits of Green Tea

Here is a forgotten post I found in my drafts from 2016. It is very relevant so I am sharing now.

Tea rinsing has been one of the things that I have tried but never stuck with during my healthy hair journey.  As you may know, tea rinsing is said to help reduce the shedding in order to maintain thicker hair.  I have not kept up with tea rinsing. The main reason for this is to reduce the many steps of my wash day.  I didn't mind skipping this step

Talk About M....I....A!!!!

2016????    2016!!!

Man did life take me away!! Maybe I lost track of what I was trying to achieve with this blog once I went fully natural.  Spent more time just trying to figure it out, and less item documenting. I've been natural maybe 5 years now....I think... Wore a lot of twist outs, had a set back, self trimmed. Went into protective style mode.  I'm still playing with the wig idea.

Battle of the Detangler Brushes

I was originally only going to do a comparisons of the Tangle Wrangler Brush versus the Felicia Leatherwood Detangling Brush but then I remembered the Michel Mercier brush that I purchased maybe some time last year and decided to share my thoughts on it as well. Although, you may already know what I think of the Michel Mercier brush, given that I forgot I even had it. LOL

Transitioner's Corner | What Have I Been Doing with My Hair Lately?

Hello there! I have been MIA yet again. I get so mad at myself when I've been away to long. I enjoy blogging, but sometimes "I just don't feel like it" *in my whiny voice*. When I get home from a long day of work and whatever else I've had to do, I just want to relax.  Getting on my laptop after sitting at a computer all day is the last thing I feel like doing when I get home, even for enjoyment. But I do like when I keep up with what's going on with me and my hair because I like to have that record that I can go back an revisit later on.

I'm usually pretty boring with my hair but I have been trying a few things here and there to switch things up a bit. I rarely stray from my everyday bun, but every now and again I get an itch to try something different.  I was going through some old photos (that I had intended to post) and thought I'd share them here.

My Goodies Have Arrived - Black Friday Buys

So I told you guys about my Black Friday purchases back in this post over here.  I must say that my goodies arrived quicker than I expected and I am beyond excited. The product junkie in me is squealing with excitement. Bahaha! Most of my purchases are items I have not tried; and waiting for Black Friday was a great way to do it.  I got some really good deals, so if they end up not working for me, I won't feel so bad about how much I spent on it. I do have high hopes for these products though. Now without further ado, let's check out my goodies!

My tgin package arrived on that Monday after Black Friday. I was pleasantly surprised when I got home.  I had no idea that my package would arrive so quickly When they said Super Fast shipping on their site, they weren't kidding! 
I purchased their Butter Cream Daily Moisturizer and repurchased the Honey Miracle Hair Mask.  I also added the travel size Organic African Shea Butter to my cart to qualify for the free shipping.  I know that I like the Hair Mask so I'm really hoping the Moisturizer will be a win for me too.

True by Made Beautiful
My True products just arrived today.  I am so siced to try these all natural hair goodies. I am just sure I'm going to love them,... or at least I hope! For black Friday all products on their site were available for $5.00 each. I couldn't decided which item to try, everything sounded so amazing.  I decided to order each of the 7 products in the line.

Here is what I got:

1.  Co Wash Cleansing Conditioner
2.  Moisturizing Shampoo
3.  Nourishing Leave-In Conditioner
4.  Conditioning Styling Cream
5.  Hydrating Hair Butter
6.  Intense Treatment Masque
7.  Quench Curl Refresher

Usually I'd be ready to use my new products on the very next wash, but I want to wait until I've used up a few other items before opening and using these. Definitely be sure to stay tuned to find out my thoughts on these goodies. It won't be too long before I do.

Who else has got some Black Friday or Cyber Monday goodies to dish about? 
What did you buy
Did anyone else take advantage of the True by Made Beautiful or TGIN sale?

As always, thanks so much for reading!
