Let the dance of life begin

I am here to sound off on anything I feel I need to voice about as well as to share and to have others share with me. My sister locks are what got this started.... so here is to celebration of my 'nappy tresses, my sister locks' and indeed life with all it offers.

Bithday on the horizon

I have a birthday in a few hours and in preparation for that, I thought I would treat myself to a facial, a body scrub, my waxing and threading and yes!!!! a manicure and pedicure (: and boy was I busy but it was worth it.

The body scrub was wonderful the showers were warm and nice so I fell asleep

The facial ooooolala fell asleep again (: but woke up feeling refreshed

The mani- pedi I have got to try to do this on a regular basis (: . I got some really nice polish from Avon in warm back and midnight plum. the warm black is yummy my hands and feet say thank you very much !!!

and the hair removal eye brow and other essential areas all done so the B'day will catch me like I want it to (: and for that I am happy

So another celeration is on the horizon and I am looking forward to it.

ps ordered a really nice cake to celebrate (: and I think I should do these treats more often and find some other special treats for the b'day yeh dat sounds like a plan(: tehee

I am learning to be patient

Living life and learning lessons. Workin in public health is stressful yes but it is also interesting, a few things have become very apparent to me we who do this work must become vessels of healing and wellness I do not believe we can truly help others in this type of setting if we do not. It dawned on me this week thatwe are always learning and inefficiences as they appear may sometimes be because I new member has joined the team and is learning the ropes (: so just as I would expect the consideration of others I should have it for others. Finding creative solutions is also another skill I am trying to hone. So the research continues to find an internship programme while learning on the job and making my contribution. Today was a day off so I just took some down time always like to recoop every now and again. On the hair note my 2 year lock anniversary is next week and look like I might be able to do a retightening and then maybe do the course in January we will see. So I will definately try to do some pics for comparison God willing (: can you tell I am excited!!!

Have a Good Weekend everyone !!!!

God Bless

Bath time & changing locks

This is what happens when you get up @ 6 am to get ready and feel idle (: My hairties are begiining to double as bath time ties. I have for the last couple of weeks stopped using a shower cap and as you can see 2 weeks away from the 2 year loc-a-versary my hair needs to be retightened. I am no longer in the same city with my consultant and this may be the push I need to learn how to retighten my hair at least there would not be this juggling to line up my time with hers ): so looks like I might actually be doing my hair closer to the 2 year mark (: as you can see I have a ponytail (with everything in the B hairtie).

as I near my lock anniversary my hair seems to be changing right before my eyes (:
