SLEEK BOX BRAIDS

Links to this post

The cooler months are approaching and as always, the last thing I want to be stuck doing during this season is dedicating hours toward the wash process.  I've developed a pretty easy breezy washing routine but being able to leave my hair alone for a couple of months is wonderful!  In this video I go over the brand of hair, number of packs used and the amount of hair used for each braid. This style took me approximately 6.5 hours to do. 

I used 3 packs of the Vivica A Fox brand Kanekalon hair in color 1 at $2.49 /pack.

THE DOUBLE TOP KNOT

I was reluctant on whether this style was appropriate to wear out but I've come to the conclusion that anything is appropriate as long as you feel good doing it.  I felt super sassy and ultra chic with this look.  Check out my tutorial on it:

ESPRESSO FOR THE GARDEN

Did you know that coffee grounds can be beneficial for plants?  The used coffee grounds provide organic matter to your soil and improves the quality of it.  You can also add it to your compost, which is something I will talk about later!  If you've had a problem with bugs around your plants this is a great/non-toxic way to control that problem

HOW TO MAKE ICED COFFEE

Links to this post

My love for coffee didn't begin until I was a senior in high school, when I applied for my 2nd job in life at Starbucks!  I knew nothing about coffee, tea, or any other "fancy" drink for that matter.  But I did know one thing, I was excited to be around people that were happy and friendly.  Any time I visited a Starbucks, which was rare at that time (because they hadn't built them on every other corner yet) I enjoyed talking to the baristas.  Back in the day, I never went for the drinks I always grabbed the pastries!  To get back on track, my love for coffee began while I was a barista.  We had to taste each blend and describe all of its notes, fruity, earthy, bold, smooth, etc. Honestly, in the beginning I would just throw things out there based on what an older woman that I worked with said (LOL) later in the game my taste buds became THAT much more sophisticated and I was then able to accurately describe a blend.  Pretty much, that is when it all started now coffee is a daily ritual that I truly enjoy.
