Weekend Photo

One of my not so guilty pleasures is reality tv where people have to make things. I love Face Off and Project Runway marathons have gotten me through some seriously tough times. I just started watching Nail'd It, a program about competitive nail artists, and I'm really liking it despite all it's problems (I'm not a fan of the host (she overacts EVERYTHING) or the ridiculous amounts of made-for-tv drama).  The manicures these folks turn out? Unbelievable.

DIY Whipped Coconut Oil...Update


When I first made my DIY Whipped Coconut Oil post, I couldn't use it on my hair. Joys of crochet braids. Since I took my braids out, I've been using it as a pre-poo and occasionally as a sealer and I wanted to give you all a quick update on how that's been working out.

Love it/Leave it: L.O.C Method


The L.O.C (Liquid. Oil. Cream) Method is a super simple way to care for your natural hair and it seems to be most popular among those who live in cold climates for maintaining moisture.What makes the LOC method super simple is two things (1) the name tells you what kind of products you'll be using and (2) the correct order to apply them in. Pretty nifty right?

Fall/Winter Wants


I can't be the only one who goes online and puts a bunch of things in a cart and walks away. And I can't be the only one who does this more often when everyone and their mother starts releasing holiday gift sets. Those are my actual poison--I'm a sample addict.
