Laser Eye Surgery.

Welcome back to my blog!
Today I wanted to discuss with you guys this new procedure that I recently underwent. Laser Eye Surgery!
So the reason that I finally decided to get Lasik was because I was sick and tired of having horrible vision. My eyesight was so bad that I could not live my life without glasses or contact. I was nearsighted so I could not see anything that was even 5 feet away.. yes it was THAT bad! When I was younger, I don't remember wearing glasses. But once I turned about 16, I noticed how horrible I was seeing and decided to start wearing glasses. I know it was really late once I started getting glasses but my parents were not keeping up with me/my health as they should've been when I was younger so I guess my eyesight just got worst over the years and once I was independent, I took matters into my own hands. (Yes, I became independent at around age 16)
After a while, I started getting tired of wearing glasses all the time and basically depending on them for …

Passion.

Welcome back to my blog! If your reading this, thank you so much for supporting me. 
You are one of the reasons that I continue to follow my passions.


Backstory: I've had a passion for photography since middle school. I wanted to study photography. When I got to the high school that I had chosen, things didn't exactly work out the way that I wanted them too. The school was very far from my home and I was a freshman at the time, who wasn't willing to make the commute every morning. I continued to take photos, whenever I could just for fun. I love the way that my pictures could tell stories and have a million different perspectives stir from just images. I fell in love with the ability to tell stories through images and capture moments that could last forever.


Today: As time went on, life went on. I moved from home, starting working and living on my own. I starting college for psychology and never really had time for anything else. But i continued to take pictures, randomly, ev…

Growing With Your Hair.

Hello my lovely curlfriends! I'm coming at you all right now with some happy and enlightening energy. I am here today because I want to shed some positivity on the difficult process of growing out your natural hair/transitioning. This journey doesn't have to be as stressful as it may seem. By allowing our hair journey to be a stepping stone in our personal development, we must grow and evolve with our hair. You don't have to dread the process of this journey if you look at the bright side of it. We must find the balance between continuing your personal/career path and going on your healthy hair journey.  This topic blossoms from my hair journey. I have been focusing so much of my time and energy in trying to cram my brain with all of these new natural hair techniques and rules that I sometimes forget that it's okay to not know somethings and allow trial and error to run it's course. I don't need to get all of the highly featured products out there. Instead, I …

Journey Highlights.

This topic I decided to talk about today was inspired by a tough week in my transitioning journey. Anyone who is a kinky haired naturalista knows what I mean when I say that having these types of hair textures can be extremely difficult. Being a beginner in this journey is definitely a factor to my hard times as well. When you are first starting out on a transitioning to natural journey, most likely you don't know what products are good or bad for you. You don't even really know your hair yet because you've been having a stylist tame (straighten) it for so long! There are just so many different things that come with the transitioning journey that it can even be a little overwhelming for some people. I know people that have tried, time and time again to get their natural hair back but they just cannot let that heat go. And trust me, I know what they mean. It is just so much easier to have someone else take care of your hair for you.

Research/Experimenting: But once you do de…

Curl Shaming.

Good morning beauties! This blog post has been something I've always wanted to cover with my supporters but I've never had the confidence to speak on, until I created this blog of course. Have you ever experienced or know someone who has, experienced curl shaming? If so, then you know how difficult it is to have to deal with these type of bullies. I've personally experienced these moments and it definitely contributed to me being embarrassed to go outside with my natural hair. It has even made me feel shameful at times to embrace the natural texture that I was given. Society has tried to create an image that for a woman's hair to be beautiful, it has to be long and/or straight. This is why a lot of us, like myself, started straightening our hair at a young age which now causes us to have all these damaged tresses that we then need to convert back to it's natural health. Curl shaming is when a person criticizes or tries to put someone down for their natural hair te…

Favorite Hair Products for Dry/Damaged Hair.

Today I am going to be introducing to you five of my favorite products for dry/damaged hair. If you suffer from damaged (whether it be heat damage or chemical damage) I know how hard it is to find those products that work well with your hair. So please take my  recommendations into consideration but always keep in mind, what works for one person, may not always work for the next.


Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration shampo:. A lot of curly girls prefer to cut shampoo completely out of their routine and go with cleansing conditioners, but I myself am not ready to do so yet. This shampoo will leave your hair feeling moisturized and smelling like an amazing coconut breeze. This shampoo has Coconut Milk & Acacia Senegal that cleanses and nourishes all hair types and it is sulfate-free which is super important for anyone following the curly girl method.

Devacurl One Condition Decadence: This product is specially made for super curly hair (aka type 3 & 4). Let me just…

Wash Day Routine.

Happy Sunday Curlies!  Today I will be talking a little bit about my 'Wash Day' hair routine. My wash days are on Sunday's. Since I am transitioning, I am faithful to the Curly Girl Method! The Curly Girl Method is a healthy hair regime built for natural hair. Following this method, I make sure to avoid harsh sulfates, silicone's and alcohol in my hair routine. I also avoid heat such as flat irons, blow dryers and or curling wands. I've used enough heat over the years lmao. Anyways, I have incorporated some healthy steps into my hair routine that have really made all the difference in lessening the stress of my transitioning journey. Now, to the routine!

Pre-Poo: A pre-poo is when you apply a conditioning treatment to the hair before shampooing in order to add moisture to the follicles. Since I have low porosity hair, this is super helpful for me. I use coconut oil or olive oil as my pre-poo. Before I started doing this step, I had so much trouble detangling my hai…
