BIG NEWS!


I've been keeping this in with my family and close friends for what feels like forever.  I'm expecting my very first bundle of joy and I couldn't be happier.  It feels like just the other day I was boasting about how life was a breeze and then God comes and says hey Ambrosia, let me give you this gift.  This has definitely shifted our lives in a new direction and we're  happily accepting this gift from God.  It isn't meant for us to sit in our comfort zone for too long... how else would we grow?


The most frequently asked question has been "Are you scared?" That feeling hasn't come about at all, as soon as I found out, I was overjoyed I smiled and laughed a bit and shed a few tears of joy.  I can't wait to meet this little bun!

Fun Facts
+ We know the gender (guess the sex!)
+ We have a name
+ Baby will be an Aquarius

I'm excited to have finally shared my big news with you guys!  I've documented everything for my own personal keep sakes. You all know I'm a super family oriented person, I'm so protective over the precious moments that I share with my fam and friends so I will not be sharing personal details online, I know you guys will understand. I do plan on doing some videos for my YouTube channel, I have a video planned talking all about what I use on my skin right now (head-to-toe) let  me know what you'd like to see!

WHEN TO TRIM NATURAL HAIR


I love that more of us are becoming more health driven as oppose to being all about length.  When it comes to natural hair, healthy tresses always catch my eye.

Here are 5 dead giveaways that let you know that it is time for a trim.

TEA OR COFFEE

I never thought the day of me preferring tea over coffee would ever come.  I noticed I wast finishing my favorite iced coffee day by day and eventually I woke up about to head off to grab my coffee (this is literally a daily ritual) and I had no desire to do it.  I'll have to explain the deets in a video, it is quite funny as everyone knows that I love coffee and my day begins with it.  Some people take their vitamins in the morning, I took my coffee with 2% milk and vanilla in the morning *giggles*!

I'm a Taurus and we need rituals, we feed on consistency and routines so I needed something in place of my morning coffee because life just didn't feel the same without drinking something in the morning.

I'll have a chai with milk & honey, please. 

I've reverted back to my old time favorite TAZO chai from Starbucks.  This was all I ever drank when I worked for Starbucks back in 2006 because I had never drank coffee.  I believe I've told this story before but when you're an employee for Starbucks it is important to know what each roast was like so we often did taste tests in store before opening.  In the beginning I cringed and then those cringes turned into mmmm's!

What is your favorite tea?

MAYBELLINE NY’S SUPERSTAY 24 LIP SWATCHES


I had been anticipating the arrival of these lip colors! My mail guy delivers quite late in the evening so as soon as they arrived I ripped the box open and did watches on my arm.   I was immediately impressed with the color payoff, I got side tracked somehow and ended up falling asleep without washing the lipstick color swatches off of my arm.  I have white bedding so you may be thinking Oh no, you ruined your sheets?! NOPE, the colors didn't move at all and there was no trace of color transfer on my bedding.  I am highly impressed!

MY SWEET ANGEL

Remembering my sweet angel, Prince.

I dreamed about this little guy every night for over a year, he was literally my child.  I will forever miss this little guy.  My list time dreaming of him was a dream where he came to me and appeared to be having fun and really enjoying his time.  My love for my fur babies run so deep.

OLDIES PT. 1



Being online is my job, though I cant totally go cold turkey but I am on a slight social media detox I have also done so much clearing out over the past 2 weeks.

My detox inspired me to go ahead and begin cleaning out my computer files, getting rid of apps that I haven't opened in years and removing pictures that didn't make the cut back in the day.  Over the next few days I will be posting some of my oldies but goodies (IMO)

If the date on my computer is correct, these photos are circa 2012

OMBRÉ TWISTS


It excites me to see that my hair is growing (See previous post) that means the classic formula of leaving my hair alone is working! I removed the faux locs, deep conditioned my hair and rocked it out for about 48hrs.

Yes, I filmed a #NaturalHair video before going back into protective mode. It wasn't a tutorial, more of a take down and "Look how fab my hair turned out" type of video. *Giggles*

Being that I have a love for chunky twists I decided to bring it back. I went a bit lighter this time around, I love it, I feel like a lioness!

10 MONTHS AGO


10 months of growth. No supplements, just better choices. No heat, no color, minimal manipulation and the use of natural products. I have learned so much about my hair this 2nd big chop round and the process is easier and even more enjoyable. That "ugly duckling" phase that I talked about when I first went natural didn't really exist this time.  Not being afraid to do a little trimming here and there to shape my fro for my face shape. Thankful for that bad relaxer, going natural was one of the best decisions I've made. I can talk about all of the changes I've made in adulthood, I think I will share in a video soon! 

I recently shared how I removed my faux locs and did a natural hair update, click here to watch
