what inspires you?

lazy day

i guess we are all entitled to have those. still havent conditioned my hair yet. i will definately handle that tomorrow on my day off. last night i didnt feel like doing anything to my hair so this morning it was a small disaster.i took a shower and let it get wet. then i applied my motions leave-in brushed in some gel with my boar bristle brush, which i love.
then i added evoo and then put it in a ponytail and a nice tight bun. my hair was kind of dry. a little neglect and it suffers. so i put it in a bun to protect the ends until i deep condition tomorrow. a bun is harder to do in the winter time. in the summer i can wash my hair in the shower and bun it while its wet. winter is here and there is definately no going outside with wet hair. so its hard putting the thickness in a bun.

the last time i relaxed my hair it came out a little bit around the nape as you can see in the second picture. i was freaking out at first, but then it didnt really bother me. i was thinking to order a bottle of jamaican black castor oil which will thicken it right back up quickly. the gel works like a mircale gel. im 6 weeks post relaxer and the edges look great.

where is my energy

i walked the track today. 7 laps. great accomplishment. i used to not be able to get past 3 laps. its such a great way to relieve stress and anxiety. do you ever feel like there are people in your life who drain your energy or jus suck the life out of you because they are so needy or because they are so negative? when im finished with my workout, im always feeling refreshed with a clear mind ready to tackle life next challenges. i always need this when there is someone or a certain situation that is draining my energy. then im always left looking around like "where is my energy". not going to let it happen anymore. gonna be different and do different. dont drain me and i wont drain you. only seeking out the positive these days.
listen..dont let people drain you or steal your joy. clean house and get rid of any negative energy. thats what im doing.

new hair products

i didnt go overboard. i like to keep my hair products stash  full of only staple products.

and the tresemme moisture rich conditioner.
it time to deep condition. so ill use this lekair cholestol  deep conditioner and add evoo to it. ill let it sit for and hour or so. then ill co-wash with the tresemme condioner. i am new to this brand of gel. i was stuck on the elasta qp gel. it worked great. but once i found this kind, i was hooked. it makes the hair soft and shiny. never gets hard or flaky.  im 5 1/2 weeks post relaxer so ill definately be needing this for the edges. this weekend im wearing my hair in a braidout. not the typical braidout with 5 or less braids. but, rather, this time i did lots of smaller braid. i havent wore this style in awhile. i kinda missed it. smaller braids mean tighter waves.

shopping,,i love it

i did make it to the mall twice within the past few days. it was a real bad idea because i saw so many things that i must have. i fixated on a necklace at charlotte russe. i had to have it. so i went back the next day and got it. it was just that serious.i dont even have an outfit for it. but im not worried about that. ill find one. however, i did maintain a certain self control, which im very proud of. the potential go broke was all around me. this is why i stay away from the mall. avoid temptation.

i did manage to get a few pics of my favorites.

this was what i saw when i first walked in jc penny. i love the animal print top with the ruffles. i liked the sweater with the belt, but i didnt like how they had it in the display. the sweater was on sale for 19.99.

these two items i found in a store in the mall called Venables. it had mainly pocketbooks and jewelry. silver jewelry. this ring is called an opalized ring. the colors that were sparkling in it were so pretty. it was $80. the necklace is costume jewelry. i thought it was going to be heavy but surprisingly it was very light. it came with some earrings that i didnt care for, and didnt even bother to add in the picture. the set (earrings and necklace) was $30.
i found this in lane bryant. i wanted it. but i didnt get it. it was $19.99 and 40% off.

i previously mentioned that i want a faux fur vest, so when i saw this i thought i had found one. but, this turned out to be a sweater with the fur in the  front. it was really cute but not exactly what i had in mind. it was in charlotte russe $44.50

and finally, saving the best for last. the necklace i was dreaming about and had to have.

i took the first picture while it was under lights but it came out dark. the second one, i laid it the couch in the store. some of the circles have silver and some have clear diamond-like pieces. it has a little weight to it. ill just add it to my stash until i find the perfect outfit for it. im thinking something definately off the shoulder. i found a picture of it on the website.

double row grecian necklace
ok, thats all for now..until next time..(xoxo lovegirl)
