I was just playing around with my hair and noticed the back of my hair can be stretched to my ARM pit! Exciting right? my goal however is for my twist to touch ny armpit without ne pulling/ stretching. I wonder how long that will take? Lol

i seen a post of Jamilas blog at and just had to try the stye with the scarf. I had bought a couple scarfs from the thrift store the other day, so timing was perfect. anywho heres the look. Picnikcollage-2010-12-26-23-20.jpg

oh yeah, i am on a hunt for a good photo editing program. I just want to be able to make collages and add text to photos. iphoto doesnt allow this and aperture is just too complicated. anyways, i used Picnik to make this collage. I like it so far and will contiue to use it until i find something better. I just wonder if picnik owns my pictures once i upload them?????

Merry Christmas and Length Check

I have been a little frustrated over the past few days with my hair.  I cant tell if its growing! I wish I would have recorded my length when i first started my no heat styles. I can say that my hair feels and looks better than a few months ago.  My plan is to measure and record my length and really crack down on a routine. I want to see progress and so far I really havent seen any :( It could of course just be my eyes, so I plan on posting some comparison pics.

anywho the front of my hair is about half inch past my lips
the middle reached down just below my chin
the back is at shoulder length

this is alll while my hair is in twist that i did on damp hair. i gotts get a ruler to make it official lol

Twist out and Mae's "roll under"

I decided to revisit a twistout, this style is from my medium sized twist that were about 1.5 or 2 weeks old. I had a 1950s theme party yesterday and I was gonna do a regular pin-up but didnt have time to play around. Jarred thought my hair looked fine in a twistout, so I trusted his judgement and wore a twistout..... to a public event, lol. I didnt get any crazy remarks.

When I got home from the party I played arund with my hair and tried Nikkimae2003's "roll under" style. Her style comes out gorgeous, she used a week old twist out so her's looked more like an afro. heres a link to her tutorial

The pink bow belongs to ava lol, and please excuse my pajamas. I just wanted to grab a picutre of my hair and wasnt dressed yet.

bad romance cover

still twisted

I haven't made a hair post in a little bit because I have been so infatuated with my keyboard, iMovie,and finding new software for my macbook. Not to mention trying to get ready for Christmas lol. Anyways these twist are about a week or so old. I didn't like them when I first put them in because I did them kinda big and thy just didn't have the rift curl. I kept them in anyway, every other night I mist them in he shower and rub either shea butter it shea moisture curl smoothoe through and toss my bonnet on. I don't do much with saying, I usually just pin the sides back and keep it moving.

All for now, I am watching Charlie brown Christmas with the kiddies :)

Uggs and Laptop bag!

A couple days ago we went the mall because i decided it was time i give ugg boots a try. SInce uggs became popular i had been avoiding jumping on the band wagon. But then I started thinking....... I spend about $100 at least on boots each year and while they are comfortable and cute they are never warm. So i bought uggs, for the warmth and hopefully comfort :) I couldn't get the traditional pair because I am sick f seeing them instead I bought the retro cargo pair (i think thats what its called) it has a strap and side pocket lol with blue and purple stitching. I wore them yesterday and I wasnt all that impressed as far as comfort goes, it felt like i was walking on a hard board :( they were warm though, it was about 40degrees and my feet were hot! I guess i will be keeping my ugg boots, im sure i will grow to like them, right now I am not in love with them. i kinda think my legs are too skinny for them lol.


My other purchase was my marc jacobs laptop bag. I wasnt shopping for one, but we stopped in the apple store and it was just too cute and the only one left! I grabbed it up, and when i got home i went online to see if i could get a better deal. Wouldn't you know, i couldn't find it online. Jarred (hubby) said i wouldn't lol. anyways the reviews on it isnt great, about half the reviews said that the strap ripped off after only a few days :( i hope that wont happen to me. Maybe those reviewing had heavy laptops My laptop is less than 5 lbs

here are links to my purchases. i got my boots from the walking company and bag from the apple store.

lastly, I am still in love with this macjournal app :)

Back from Vacation!

and in the process of organizing my pictures and vidoe for upload. Mexico was amazing, we stayed at the Grand pallidium resort in the Royal suites! We went to Tulum and Xel-ha and hung out at our resort.

as far as hair, i wore twist from about 2 weeks ago and they held up great! I just got around to washing my hair tonight after 3 weeks of twist. I was scared to wash because i thought it would be a mess to detangle based on how long they were in and becaue i had gotten them wet. to my suprise it was a normal detangling session i had only a small child sized hand full of shed hair!

right now, my hair is a few briads to dry overnight and then i will twist tommorow. i am exhauseted and going to bed. i will upload my pics soon :)
