Home improvements

One of my goals this year is to make some home improvements I’ve been putting off since I bought my house 3 years ago. This month I was able to paint my bedroom and re-organize the furniture. Though I just painted it a different shade of white (SW Greek Villa) it feels like a new room. I give most of the credit to the new furniture placement.

Hair goals

After years of not doing this, I set some hair goals for the year. I really want to get my relaxed hair back on track and felt that having some solid and achievable goals would help with that.


In January my church did corporate fasting for 21 days. I decided to participate to help recharge my relationship with God and also to get focused to achieve some of my personal and career goals this year.

My participation in the fast consisted of

Deep conditioner experiment

Back in December, I started to question whether or not I was using enough deep conditioner on my hair and what would happen if I used more. So I started a 4-week hair experiment in December that ended in January and I was amazed at the results. I’m not going to spoil it here you’ll have to watch my two videos where I share the results.

Part 2


Mielle Mongongo Oil Thermal & Heat Protectant Spray

I love this stuff. So much in fact that when they had their $7 sale in January I bought 5 bottles which probably wasn’t enough. I’ll have to stock up again during another sale.

This heat protectant gets my hair smoother than any other I’ve used all the while adding some moisture to my hair.

Later App

This one may be a surprise since I don’t post on Instagram consistently, yet. But when I do post I use Later App. I had been using their free plan but got a free month to try their Premium Plan.

This trial kinda has me hooked. With the Premium Plan, I’ve been able to schedule some of my stories which has helped me to always have something to view in my stories section, I can schedule multi-photo posts, and I can add multiple links to my images on my link in bio page. If you want to be more active on effort on Instagram with little effort I recommend giving the free plan of Later a try. You can use my affiliate link to sign up.

Hair vitamins

I rediscovered hair vitamins a couple of months ago but I really noticed how much they’ve been helping my hair this month. Right now I’ve been taking Nature Made Biotin vitamins but once that jar is done I’ll be switching back to my favs the Mielle Healthy Hair Adult Vitamins.
