My hair used to be so damaged and a lot thinner than what it is now. There are a few thing’s I’ve done over the year’s to grow my hair thicker, stronger, and healthier. I will list them below!
- I slowed down with the straightening iron and all other heating tools. My teen year’s consists of me straightening my hair ALL the time on HIGH heat! I was very insecure about my curly hair and thought I looked better with straight hair so using the heat iron and blow dryer often weakened my hair and made it thin. I also lost my curls and had to grow my hair out. I hardly use heating tools these day’s and when I do, I use it on low heat.
- I drink certain thing’s that most people wouldn’t and are disgusted by such as, Blackstrap Molasses, Bone Broth, and a ablespoon of Olive Oil and Coconut Oil a day. To grow your hair thicker and stronger, you have to take your vitamins, and this is how I take mine!
- I not only drink olive oil and coconut oil, but I put it on my hair and rub it into my scalp. I usually drench my hair in olive oil once every 2 weeks and do the “Green House Method” which is to put a plastic bag over your hair while it is damp with the olive oil. This can also help hair growth.
- Also eating many fruits and veggies will help your hair grow out thicker. I am not the healthiest eater in the world but I do eat my veggies as much as I can and notice a difference in my hair, skin, and overall health when I do.

I’ve never had super long hair before and now I finally can because of Mane Couturier! They were so nice to send me a bundle of natural brown 24 inch hair Extensions! They are so fun and easy to use. You simply just clip them in. In the photo below, I have used all 10 pieces and I curled them with my curling iron.

See how long my hair is?! ✨
Btw my dress is from Forever 21 and shoes are from Charlotte Russe!
When the hair extensions first arrived, I washed them and while they were damp, I sprayed sun In and used lemons to lighten the hair a bit so it can match my hair color. (I have recently used Sun In to lighten my hair)
When it first arrived: so beautiful 😍
Using heat to lighten the hair:
Lightened a bit and straightened: (can’t really tell but it is lighter! Lol)

Ever since I started blogging, I entered a whole new world! What I love most about the blogger life is all the people I’ve got to meet so far.
I have been invited to blogger groups online ever since I’ve started and eventually we got to meet in person!
Our first meet up, Having a picnic at Lake Eola:
OTHER magazine pre launch party at Herman’s Loan Office:
After Herman’s, we explored Downtown Orlando and fell in love with Frosty’s Christmas Lounge! 😍
Taking a walk, window shopping, and being silly in Winter Park:
So far, I love all the girl’s and we always have fun on our outting’s. We eat good food, go shopping, and take plenty of pictures. I definitely can’t wait for more event’s to come ❤
I’ve been hearing so much about Card B and her new song ‘Kodak Yellow’ (which I really like!), and so I started looking at some interview video’s of her talking about her life before fame, why she became a stripper and so on, and I can actually relate to her so much on her thoughts about thing’s. She seems like a really cool person.
She talks about how much peer pressure there is in the world for people to be successful and get more money. The peer pressure will drive you insane because you feel like you have to prove something to all the”Haters” even though you feel like you have already succeeded in life! A lot of women (even me) feel peer pressured to look a certain way, not only to get attention from men but to also be better than other girl’s and make more money! I’ve even fallen victim, (while working at nightclubs and all) feeling like I should go get my boobs done or lipo because I didn’t feel good enough and so many other girl’s were getting work done! Of course I didn’t get my boobs done lol I just decided to leave because I didn’t feel like it was worth it, that club life isn’t for me.
What she also mentions that I like is that how she can see a guy, think he’s cute bit that doesn’t mean she’ll f*ck him. I think the same and feel like so many men don’t understand that just because you think you’re the best looking guy or best looking girl, it doesn’t mea I want You! There has to be some type of chemistry in order for me to want to move thing’s forward, especially to have sex with you!
I may have judged her a bit before because of her sexy rapper lifestyle but I feel like she’s so much more than a piece of ass or whatever people may think, and that’s exactly what I feel like people think about me sometimes, especially with how I used to post…. but no, there can be so much more about someone, no matter their lifestyle or the types of photos they post of themselves on social media!
But anyways, if you want to check out the video, I uploaded it below. 💜
