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.

New Orleans

I had the opportunity to got to this absolutely wonderful place for a conference in April, the conference the largest I have ever been to (and I was told it was smaller than previous years). I love this 'town'the people warm and helpful, the atmosphere just full of life and the food oh boy. I tried all I could Emerils, catfish poboy, turtle soup, gumbo and of course beignets and my tummy said thank you. Walked on Canal and Burbon streets and crossed the mississipppi! If I do make it to the conference next year I will have to do some planning it is such a big conference I will need to plan what presentations and posters I want to see but it was a good 'get me feet wet' experience. So these are a few pics at stops along the way.

one love still

ps needless to say I hope one day to go back :)

btw mum I can be obedient when I want to :)

Big Hair and Long overdue Retightening


Well thanks to my sister lock gadget guru I found a shower cap that covers all my hair in the shower (no getting wet roun here). This is a great find it is the big hair shower cap from O.R.E. and it covers my hair completely the way the edges are designed prevent even a drip of water from getting to my locks. Previously I was using a plastic shopping bag (declined to post pics too scandalous) I used the big hair this morning for the first time and I am pleased as punch. So a 'Big' shout out (no pun intended) the the guru. Mum says to me last night "long time you don't post on your blog" so I said I would post today then she says "with pictures" these were taken this morning. Getting to my retightenings has been challenging so the last two were done when it was overdue but Alicia ((hugs))) is great. I had my retightening done last week and we are going to try for 5 weeks next time because it is taking too long when more than that time passes. My locks are doing well inspite of. On the style front I really want to wear more dresses, skirts and cotton pants been trying for a while now to make a go at it so we will see how that works out for me. Light and happy sighting...last week after I had gotten my hair done I was heading to the store with the friend who took me to have my locks retightened and this lady stopped me out the door of the store she says "your locks are gorgeous, it that the 4 point?" then she begins to tell me all about her locks and how she does them herself and goes to youtube for her how to vids. She was sweet and it is always such a happy thing when some ones stops me to discuss locks :) she asked what colour I had on my ends oh boy you mean the peroxide aks bleach, browns and then the black this colour has morphed into its 'own'

one love
ps locks are beautiful :)
