Summer is fast approaching! Do you know what that means? Hair color change!! I want to lighten it up a considerable amount. Two days ago i lifted the black and now I've got a dark brown/honey color mix. I like out but i can't wait to go lighter. Here are some examples of what I'm going for:
I randomly came across these images online. I do bit own these images, just using them as a reference!

My neighbor has been painting a lot of things at her house and that gave me the itch to paint something. I visited one of my local goodwill stores and found an interesting piece of furniture. I had no idea what it was before looking it up.turns or this is a DVD holder. It was in great condition, just needed a little tlc. Everyone knows i can't leave well enough alone, so i decided to paint it! Let me know what you guys think!

Life has been interesting lately. I've involuntarily taken a hiatus from blogging. I just felt pretty tired of it to be honest. Not tired to a point of closing my blog, just tired from real life as well as a lack of inspiration lately. I really needed some space from blogging to clear my head. While on hiatus, I've been up to some pretty interesting things! The two most time consuming? Gardening and couponing! The vegetables UV my garden are really starting to grow and that is so exciting! I'm hoping i can keep them alive, I've got onions, green onions, cherry beets, beefsteak tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, Arugula, lettuce, string beans, zucchini squash, and summer squash. Oh I've also got my herbs, just basil, parsley, cilantro and dill.
I've been couponing like crazy too. I've actually got a binder where i have all of my coupons categorized and organized. I have a friend and new neighbor who used to do extreme couponing so she taught me a lot and tomorrow night I'm going to a coupon class and swap. Im so excited about that, I've already for my list of questions, i know I'm going to learn so much! Anyway between the two that's where the majority of my time seems to have gone. But I'll be back to normal really soon. As a matter of fact I'm going to share my first couponing trip with you guys once i go! I really love the idea if extreme couponing so i really think i want to make at least one shopping trip like they do on the show. But im not sure how soon they will be, lol

I've wanted to paint again for a few days and finally got the chance to. I'm no good art painting (or drawing for that matter) but there are some days that I feel extra motivated and can actually put out something decent! Here are two paintings from the other day. One of those days that felt 'right'. How you guys like them!

I know I've posted on here so many times about locs and how i wanted them, but wasn't sure when i would be ready and all that. I decided that i am ready now. I've wanted locs for years but put the thought to the side because it didn't feel quite...right just yet. After taking down my yarn braids i prepped my hair. I knew that was it. It's been one day shy of a while week with my starter locs in and I'm so excited. I can't wait to see the changes my hair goes through. I can't wait to feel the highs and the lows of learning how to work with my hair through it's many stages. I feel like this is going to be a beautiful journey, and i am ready!!
I'm going to make a video this week about my hair and i plan on updating every month. Wish me luck, weeee!

I am so excited to bring this post to you guys! Recently, i was contacted by Firmoo to try a pair of glasses from their website. Firmoo.com is the worlds most popular online eyeglass store. They offer seriously competitive prices (they cost a lot less than any traditional eyeglass store) but that doesn't sacrifice their quality. They are committed to offering their customers the best quality products at the most affordable prices. Check out their FAQ to find out even more about Firmoo. This could not have happened at a better time. Anyone who has read my blog for a while knows that I somehow run through glasses. Seriously. They either wind up lost or broken . My old faithful black glasses are getting really raggedy and I was really afraid that they would break soon. So the timing was perfect! If you're curious about how to receive a free pair of glasses, stay tuned to the end of this post!
I was really surprised by how many different frames there were to choose from. I didn't know what to look at first, lol. Picking glasses that suited my face was pretty fun. You can upload a photo of yourself to get an accurate idea of how you'd look in them. After a while, I narrowed it down to about 5 pairs that I really liked. Searching through different styles was extremely easy and I decided on a pair that I fell in love with. I absolutely adore these frames!
|I just love these white frames!!|
Placing my order was simple and straightforward, and once my order was sent, I was updated every step of the way. In less than a week I received my new awesome glasses, and I couldn't wait to try them on. They were shipped very neatly and came inside a hard cover case. There was a cleaning cloth and a drawstring soft case as well. Not pictured was a small tool kit and extra screws. That was a great surprise!

- Dough (I make my own, but you can certainly use a store bought dough)
- 1 egg + 2 tbsp of water for egg wash
2) Put a dollop of sauce on one side.
3) Cover with cheese
4) Add whatever toppings you like! we love pepperoni.
5) Grab your egg wash and brush the inside corners.
