Daily Fix of Hair

 Today's fix is of....

To make up for being gone so long, I figured I should plaster myself all over my own blog.
I love finding photos of other people & their lustrous hair
but what I really love is seeing personal pics on personal blogs.
So let me do what I love to see =)

Photography by... ME!
It's the weekend!

Daily Fix of Hair

This is a wash n go I did.

-Co washed with Giovanni 50:50 Hydrating-Calming Conditioner

-Applied Tresemme Naturals afterwards & rinsed out most of it

-I then applied Mixed Silk Leave in Conditioner by Silk Elements
Ran a bit of almond oil on my hair & let it dry overnight in a pineapple.

Excuse the poor quality pics. I didn't use my camera but my Macbook.

TeaTime Tidbit

I don't know why but every time I have a cup of tea, I feel as if my senses get going and the neurons in my brain get to racing.

Oh yes, it is called caffeine.
Besides that stimulant, the act of drinking tea makes me feel warm, cozy and gets me to thinking. So I felt inspired to have posts entitled Tea Time Tidbits where I share little nuggets of inspiration & the random going ons in my head.
So brew yourself a cup of whatever you fancy & join me! Comments are always welcome

note: these pics are from January. 

The first one is about loving yourself. So cliche but something that needs to be said. Many people out there, women & men, don't love themselves. They have issues with embracing who they are and fully loving all that God gave them. Inside and out.

I figured I would start with the outside. I was checking out Tracee Ellis Ross' website (which is great btw) and she had a wonderful post about breasts. It was about her breasts and the view society has on the way breasts should look. To read click here.
After reading the article, I felt more secure with my breasts. I've always looked at them as not attractive in the nude, that they should be higher up and they look much better in the dark. I didn't really love my boobs. The article was uplifting (no pun intended) because it made me realize God made my boobs, everyone's boobs are different & I should love my boobs!

With that said, love yourself. What you think are imperfections are really what makes you, YOU. Sets you apart from everyone else.

No one is perfect, we're all imperfect so love yourself. You're GREAT!
