MY HAIR - Back to Black

I told y'all the ombre was gone and BLACK IS BACK!
I sound excited but I wash't at first.
Instead of getting a natural black, I got Silken Black from Clairol Textures & Tones
Why? I'm not sure. Now I still kind of regret doing it.
I'm not a fan. I'm thinking I should have done a dark brown instead.

I have to let you lovelies know the good, bad and ugly of my hair.
Initially, it looked hella fake. To me at least.
I shampooed twice in one week with sulfates to spread up the fading process.
That deep of a hate.

It's not as blinging black as before but I want it to fade more.
This reminds me of the time I did a red rinse when I was relaxed.
At least I knew that would fade, this is a permanent color.

The urge to chop is heavier than before..

Artiste Spotlight - Kristine Alicia

What a way I've been missing!
Anyways, we won't dwell on that.
What we will dwell on is this amazing artiste - Kristine Alicia
Who would I be if I didn't feature someone of the reggae genre from my beautiful island Jamaica?

I've had the pleasure of knowing her for almost 10 years
(since I was a teen)
and I've always been blown away by her unique voice.
It's soulful and sticks with you. 
So much so I find myself repeating her tracks.

She's also a fellow curly girl!
Isn't her tapered cut awesome? Makes me want to chop mine off.

Get into this acoustic version of her song Perfect Time
which just happened to be shot by yours truly :)
For more vids of her singing and giving her take on life

Enjoy =)

Time & Ombre Hair

Summer is over and so is this ombre hair. It was short lived as was Summer. Where did the time go?
It's as if time said "Peace out homie" & left me behind.
I realize I tend to go missing on this blog during those months .. I'm not sure why.
Maybe it's because I get into a state of reflection which turns into a funk.
Life picks up & drops me - then Fall rolls around & I'm back. Two months just flew by me.

Recently, I was reminded by God how time is precious. Time is a gift.
Time is priceless. Time is also fleeting.
We are suppose to invest our time wisely and not squander seconds. Why am I posting about this? Well since 2014 is coming to a close 
[quicker than I thought]
Why not remind y'all to use it wisely as I've been reminded.

Yes You!
What things haven't you accomplished yet for this year?
Ready for this Fall/Winter season?
