Chris Brown on Wendy Williams


Yes I watch Wendy, and I love her. Chris Brown debuted his new video Crawl. The video is dumb, Cassie is in the video, but it's still kind of wack. I guess it's supposed to be about redemtion or whatever, but leave it alone, just make a dance record. You were wrong it happend lets move on, the more you remind us of it the more we hate you.

I was a little dissapointed with Wendy, she is know for being outrageous, and she let Chris off easy. The video was longer than the entire interview. I can't believe I missed my nap for that crap...

My First ever Staple Product!

Ok so I don't have very many, let me repgrase that,ANY staple products in my regiment s o far. I am trying to Curb a slight case of Pjism so I don't let myself buy any new products until I run out of something. Well if you saw my haul video then you know I recently purchased a new DC. I usually don't review products after one use, but THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!!!!



My hair has never EVER been this soft and moisturized. I never used the Matrix Biolage, but everday on my lunch break from Target I spend a good 10 minutes creeping the hair product aisles looking for something to buy, try, or read up on and I always paused at the Biolage, I just could never bring myself to spend $25 on one bottle of conditioner. so when I discovered the GVP I had to try it. The ingredients are Identical adn AMAZING...

Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Myristyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Decyl Oleate, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum), Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Hexyl Cinnamal, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Hydrastis Canadensis (Golden Seal) Extract, Fucus Vesiculosus (Bladderwack) Extract, Methyl-2-Octynoate

If your in need of a staple DC it's worth a try, only 6 bucks.

peace
so much lovve

Our Love Story pt 6

After the night of debauchery that was Homecoming I felt a little like Cinderella. The clock struck midnight and I went back to life as usual. I was so mad at myself for not exchanging phone numbers with Caleb, but there was always facebook. So I did something that was completely out of character for me, I added him as a friend. In this millennium that’s the equivalent to me asking for his number, so I felt confident that since I made that first step, he would surly confess his unwaving love for me right then and there. All I got was a ‘what’s up”. But I could read between the lines so I replied with. “Not much, what’s up with you”. That was it. Honestly nothing else for weeks. Then one day I logged on and had a message in my inbox, he FINALLY asked for my number, I of course obliged. Things were really starting to look up.

Bag it

As you know keeping your hair moisturized is a key component in having long healthy hair. A quick and easy way to add moisture back into the hair is to baggy. There several different ways to baggy you hair depending on the length and degree of dryness. For a short haired Doll like myself I would recommend trying this Simple 3 step Method.

1. Moisturize
2. Seal
3. Apply plastic conditioning cap

This method allows the moisturizer to penetrate the hair, leaving it feeling soft and moisturized. Try leaving the cap on for 30 minutes at a time; once the first 30 minutes are up then check to see if your hair has reached your desired moisture. If not, leave it on for another 30 minutes, just be careful because leaving it on too long may cause your hair to become over moisturized and mushy feeling. Here’s a visual…

New Carmex!!!

Saw an add for this in the new Us Weekly..


I love Love Carmex. I think EVERYONE, man woman or child should always have a lip balm with them at all times, who doesn't like soft lips? Carmex is my balm of choice and I was so pumped to learn that they came out with a new, girly looking version. I thought strawberry flavor was a good as it was gonna get. Can't wait to try this stuff, hope it works like my old faithful, but I will let you know...

Lovin Right Now...

Lazy day

Hey Dolls'

I been a bum I know, but this week I will be better about posting. I have a haul video coming and also I am gonna Swag Jack Dita Von Teese. Plus I have another Spring RTW fashion show to review, and of course another installment of Our Love Story.

As far as my hair goes, I have been trying to change it up a bit. I heard about so many women who have used protective styles to grow their hair but then once it's long, and they try to wear it out it breaks. Since I plan to start wearing my hair out more come the first of the year I've decided to start getting it ready. So my plan is to rollerset every other week. So on the week that my hair is in the roller set I will moisturize, seal and wrap my hair every night, then in the morning take it down and put my wig cap on. I know it's not the same as wearing it out but atleast this way it's slowly getting use to the manipulation.

On my no roller set weeks I am going to go back to my trusty french braids.



It's a start, I know I am going to have to master a lot more low manipulation styles, but you gotta start somewhere.

Roller set miss step...



Hey Dolls,
Just a random post. Today was wash day, and I did my scalp pre-poo, then washed and conditioned. Then I attempted to do a roller set. I wanted to cry. I seemed like it took forever. My arms were so sore and i only got about 3/4 of the way through before I wanted to give up. I finised, and I was so proud of myself, but then dumb me I didn't sit under the dryer long enough so it didn't come out right. Which is fine because I am still wearing my wig but I was a little dissappointed because i worked so hard on the D@amn set, and it could have been so great, had it dried all the way. Anyway, I got some much needed roller setting practice I can't complain to much. Here's how it came out lol.



Peace
So Much Love

Our Love Story pt 5



I was pleasantly surprised when I turned and saw it was Caleb. He had basically ignored my existence ever since my first night at Muskingum. Even that night the only thing I got from him was a hey, when I first arrived to Star’s house, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t secretly hoping for this moment since the first shots were poured. There was something different about him than all the other boys. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I knew he was something special.

So of course I danced with him, it was the last song of the night, well the last fast song anyway. I was in drunken bliss as our hips swayed to T-Pain and Baby Bash, Cyclone. I still to this day get goose bumps when I hear that song. I guess part of me knew right then and there at that moment that in his arms was where I was always meant to be.

Anyway after the song went off we went our separate ways, back to meet up with our friends to figure out who would be driving and where everyone is riding, but this time as we parted ways, I knew I had him.

Once we all got back to Star’s house we drank a little more, laughed about the nights events, and a few people, I won’t name any names, even got sick. After Chrysta cleaned up Corey’s barf ,oops, everyone settled in to try and get some rest. Caleb and I snuggled up on the floor and that night we had our first of many late night chats. I was too drunk to remember anything that was said, but I do know that I felt comfortable telling him anything.

Once everything wuited down and I finally passed out. I wake to star tapping me on the shoulder at 5:50 am, “Can you still take me to work?” WHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYY did I drink so much? I had to get home and get ready for church anyway, so I jumped up and gathered my stuff and left Caleb laying there, knocked out. I never even got his phone number. Oh well on to the next…

I want YouR Body Like rIght Now!!

Nov. Hair Goals

Hey Dolls,



It’s time for my November goals. Caleb was here and his visit went great, but it also showed me that I really still have a long way to go on this healthy hair journey. Like I said he prefers my real hair so I wore it out while he was here, but I never realized how hard it is to style and care for your hair on a daily basis. It’s so easy for me because I keep it protected 100% of the time, I have to re learn how to care for my hair when its not under the wig. My plan is to only use wigs for stretches come the first of the year, so until then I am going to practice my low manipulation styles.

First up is roller setting. My goal for this month is to roller set atleast 2 times. I tried it once and actually getting the rollers in was a bitch, but it actually came out really well. I figure since my hair will still be above my shoulders by January, roller sets will probably be my best friend.

I also need to find a good way to sleep at night. I have always hate wrapping my hair, and it really isn’t the best method, but I am not sure if my hair is long enough for a cross wrap. I found a few different video’s on youtube, I just wish some of these ladies had short hair so I know if it can work or not. That is why I started this blog, because yea it’s good motivation to see ladies with long healthy hair, but I always want to know what they did to get there.

Anyway, I as well as learning how to style my hair, I am also trying to be more consistent. Since I started my second job, I have barely felt like doing anything, and my hair and fitness are really taking a backseat. I almost never take my supplements and I have to make myself moisturize and seal. I don’t workout anymore at all lol, and I just feel like an all around bum most of the time. So this month I am going to try to step it up a lot.

Other than that, all is well with me. Hope you are enjoying “our love story” Look for it every Thursday.

Peace
So much love
Erika

Jimmy Choo for H&M

Found some pics! The collection hits select stores on Nov. 14th









Mario, and RIRI, even worse than before

I wanted to do some songs from Mario's new ablum, but the only one that is really worth mentioning is this one which didn't even make the ablum. The entire CD itself isn't bad, its just very not anything spectacular. Its a good R&B cd, but it doesn't have that wow factor. It's so hard to compete with Trey right now, so unless it's fire, then don't even bother. I will say that I love Breakin Up, but i'm sure you've all heard it like 1,273,992 times so I'm not even gonna post it.



RIHANNA, THIS HAS GOT TO STOP!!!! WE LOVE YOU BUT YOUR MAKING IT HARD TO REMEMBER WHY!!!!!! This sounds like it was produced in somebody's basement
