Happy Belated Dr. MLK Jr. Day!

Tomorrow, my spring semester starts for the speech class that I teach. For the week and-a-half prior, I had my simple spa days:

Cornrow Care

Cornrow Care: Bandanas & scarves + dry shampoo ~ including this one from my Birthday/B2S Birchbox and from my fave raves ~ come in handy for my braided hair and Asia!

Cornrow Maintenance

Mo’ Cornrow Main(tenance) for my Mane: Annie backs me on more bandanas & scarves!

Skin Care Selfie

S is for … SundaySkin Care/Face Mask Selfie ~ Clean in 2015 * NO Makeup * Bare Face * I Woke Up Like This … It also stood for Superbowl-bound ~ until my *DALLAS COWBOYS* were defeated

  • got my massage from Lisa
  • gave myself a mani-pedi

* Another acne treatment:

Toothpaste!

Both mi comadre y mi amigo suggested this skin care mode for me ~ so I noticed the effectiveness when I spot-treat! When I compared ingredients between my toothpaste and my astringent, it made sense:

Benzoic Acid!

Well, we all need to make time out of our busy schedules to take care of ourselves! In the midst of serving my Church, working on my dissertation, teaching and tutoring, photographing, I must be mindful of my own maintenance in order to keep up my mood and momentum plus stay effective.

CHEERS to ♣Spring♣ 2015!

Jen from FHHT, as in From Head to Toe, and I must be two great minds who think alike!

She also wanted to look cute for Farmers Market, as you can see …

When I went, I picked fresh veggies in plaid!

As someone with lots of locks, she showed how you can fake a bob and still rock!

Of course, you saw me with my bouffant

The latter video points out that you can get a free hair style from a major salon if you donate your hair on November 22nd!

🎊Birthday🎉 & 🍎Back-to-School🍏!!!

Last week (or shall I say, two weeks before then to include three full weeks), I rang in my BiG 3-3 and prepared to teach in my hometown this fall ~ after over five years of teaching in South Texas. Therefore, I had to get a minor makeover!

First, Evie‘s mom Maggie cut and curled my hair (as seen with A&A).

Then Dee and I celebrated together, and she added to my wardrobe👗!

Don’t Dee & I look hot in our maxi dresses?

On my actual Bday, we curled our hair!

Speaking of Dee, don’t she, Lisa and I all look fabulous as the August Birthday Baby Beauties💁?

Love ’em like Sisters!

& of course, now that I’m exactly half my mom‘s age (she was my age when she gave birth to me), here’s an indicator of how I may look like when I’m double my age!

Good timing that Back-to-School was yesterday, due to my beauty gifts from Nanay & Sis!

Braid for Cascade of Waves Rave

I had a beautiful hair day on this Sunday fun day ~ well, more like this whole weekend, actually!

First, I started with braiding my hair and pinning it up. Like my new Coach Gabrielle glasses?

Then, when I went to church this morning, I took my hair down… & voila! Bouncy curls is where it’s @ (spritz mane w/holding spray or volumizing mousse, if desired).

Now I know that this isn’t a brand-spankin’ new hair tip, but I just wanted to share 1 way of how a great hair day can lead into the next bombshell hair day =D
