♥ SOMETHING NEW + MORE

Links to this post
Hey all, we made it another week with out going completely insane--I THINK! lol
You all know about me having an interview yesterday, that went great. To be honest I really don't know much of anything about the job or the duties of it. All I know is that it is a marketing group. *They called me Friday evening for my follow up interview which we scheduled for Monday. He explained that during that interview they will give a better description of the job and discuss pay. Honestly, I'm at the point where I am open to positions but if this is a commision based job then it is a no go for me. I like to have a set salary, not wondering how much I'm going to make each week. Just like B SCOTT SAY'S { OH NO MA'AM ! } I cant do it.

On another note, I spent lastnight with my cousins, we all got our hair done. WEAVED IT UP
CLICK HERE TO SEE
it's been so long since I've worn weave * it feels different. I just hope I don't start going crazy because I just love touching my natural hair, you natural ladies know how that is.. we love feeling the texture lol, it's a weird habit that I've picked up over these past months.
*None of my hair is left out so it is a complete weave, I am expecting GROWTH!
*I wont be doing any hair tutorials, unless of course I figure out a nice style with this weave
*BUT-- that means I'll be able to focus strictly on makeup & to anyone who requested a look, don't worry. . . I haven't forgotten about you :)

I ♥ SPRING + NUDES

Links to this post
So I was on the MAC site just browsing, and I ran into this photo for the mineralized products. When the weather starts to get warmer I always tend to run towards my nude lips, springy peach color for the cheeks, bronzer, new tube of black liner and nice mascara. This look is great!

{UPDATE 4:04 pm } Just got a phone call and was totally caught by surprise, right when I was feeling like the whole 'APPLY ONLINE' thing was useless, hope has come my way. I have an interview tomorrow-- Wish me luck!

Good Day Muffins

Links to this post
This is week two of being unemployed, really sucks. The whole 'apply online' deal is super irritating--I'd rather go in person. I hate how things have gotten so casual in the working world these days EMAIL YOUR RESUME AND WAIT WAIT WAIT. I am not feeling it @ all. What ever happened into having to get dressed to impress and go in that office with your go getter face on? I imagine it hasn't quite been like that since '07.

Honey Bunches got a job last week! I am so excited for him, he makes good money doing what he does. I was thinking lastnight. . . I was just fussing at him and telling him that he shouldn't be content with having his mom give him money. He's a grown man and it's time for our parents to kick back, we need to pamper them for all they have done for us.

This is part of what makes me not feel stressed from the job loss. With him I am free, I laugh, I feel relaxed. My parents also take the stress away they give me strength. I just wanted to post this video from monday :)

JUST CHILL

Links to this post
Hello everyone, I had a very nice Monday. Maybe it is because I spent the whole day with my honey bunches and that took my mind off of the stress that has been lingering around me these past few days. We watched tv and cuddled ALL day-- he made us a nice little lunch lol. This made me so happy, being that we hadn't been able to have quality time like that since I moved from LA. My parents are very strict so we don't get to cuddle when he's here at my house. I'm 18 (going on 19) and I just don't feel like the parents fail to realize that. I was trying to save up money in hopes of getting an apartment of my own by the end of the year or sometime in 2010 -BUT- you all know the deal, loss of job means a major set back for me. Sheesh, this is exactly how I felt when I first moved back to AZ from LA. Like a fish being taken out of the water. . . in a world with what seems like little opportunity in the working field-- but when I first moved back, that was the beginning of our economic destruction, it is almost a year later and it has only gotten worse...IMPOSSIBLE! Okay, *sigh* I must stay positive [ I've been chanting that all weekend].

CHANGES

Links to this post
Whelp, it happened! The economy is horrific, the state is going bankrupt, there has been job cuts weekly. Last week the state let go over 650 more employees. This cut consisted of any one who had not been a state employee for at least a year and a half. I was part of this cut, I'm bombed out because I knew how hard it was to even find that job. I will not let my emotions get the best of me. Right when I got home I brought up my resume from 08 and updated that bad boy :) I'm back on it. It is all in the lords hands, with wonderful words of wisdom from my Grandpa, I am a trooper that will not loose hope. The man above has a place for me.

On another note, I recorded a tutorial last week and it is all edited and everything. Windows Movie Maker doesn't like it or something because it doesn't want to fully upload. I'll try to cut it so I can get it to you all soon!

HAIR UPDATE

Links to this post
As you all may know, this is month 5 of my natural transition. I told you all last week that I would post the progress-- here it is!
my hair is still wet, freshly washed

this is the new growth when I stretch it. The new growth ends where the tip of my finger is, so it has grown a lot

I know you all see those waves! Never thought I'd have them lol but they have arrived. If you read my post about getting negativity about my decision to go natural. Well over the week end those exact same people were the ones complementing me on the waves. They really like it. hmph lol they'll be going natural next lol

SCALP BUDDIES

Links to this post
Lol @ the title. I woke up this morning and noticed that I had lots of dandruff :x yea, I know..gross. having dandruff makes me feel uncomfortable when it is noticable like it is today. Have any of you heard of there being like, the regular dandruff, and then there is "growing dandruff" meaning that your hair is growing. Is this just another family remedy, or is there really a such thing as growing dandruff, and how can you tell the difference between different types of it? Like, I've heard of people getting dandruff from dirty hair, dry scalp [ I believe flakes are developed with dry scalp], irritation of the scalp.

How do I get rid of this? Maybe shampoo with mint?

Comment, tell me what you all think.

[UPDATE: SATURDAY FEB, 7TH 2009]| Problem solved :)

THE TABLES TURNED

Dispite the way I was feeling Wednesday afternoon, that evening turned around completely! My uncle flew in town on a business trip and in between that he came and visited me and the fam. I hadn't seen him since I was about 7. I couldn't get rid of the grin on my face. He will be out here on business every other week for now with the project they're working on. I feel so good, they always wanted me to visit them in Georgia but I was far too nervous. But now, I actually can see myself flying out there to see everyone! THE FAM BAM! lol, loves it!

Thank you all for your support & comments, they are well appreciated


HAIR| did a twist out, I twisted in a bunch of tiny sections last night on dry hair [ but I used my spray bottle on each section to give it moister]

WHAT IS IN MY SPRAY BOTTLE?| H2O, Shea Butter & Carrot oil.

Got lots of compliments on it today, I didn't know it looked that good lolXOXOB

STRESS IS NOT A FACTOR

Links to this post
I keep telling myself that everything is fine. . . No way! I'm so afraid for our world. The job market is terrible, families are homeless (seeing way more of this than usual). Former rich folk robbing banks to support their children the way they use to. It seems like none of this stuff hit me until I start working for the state and actually seeing these people in our office needing help. Everyday I hear women and their children crying because they need food, I see men coming in asking for help because they were laid off, I even see previously successful business people needing assistance because their businesses fail and they're broke. The only thing we can do is pray, GOD is our only way through this. It will be worse than the great depression.. things are really bad right now :/ I thank God that I have a good job, and I am praying even harder that I keep it.

5 MONTHS OF TRANSITIONING

Links to this post
Tomorrow will make it exactly 5 months since my last relaxer. Managing my hair is still quite simple. . . Although I've had to search around online for tips on doing certain things-- slicking back my hair has been the toughest challange. But yestertay, I finally profected it! I used a glob of Shea Butter, a bit of tea tree oil and the Proclaim Aloe gel. I love that stuff, it doesn't make your hair all hard and it isn't harsh at all. I actually noticed that I have waves for the first time [not counting when I was a baby and relaxer free] I will add a picture when I get off work. I'm just so proud of my journey so far.

BREAKAGE| I've experienced more breakage than usual these past to times I've washed. I kind of freaked out, but I guess I can expect this to happen with the more growth I get. I'm trying to hold on to the length... maybe I'll do another egg treatment. -- I'll find a way.

[EDIT]10:47PM
I know I told you all that I will have progress photos of my hair up today, but I was really busy after work, and I am barely getting home. I'm far too tired to be uploading pictures right now SOWWY everyone. Changed the look of my blog and got rid of the chat section. It may be back up later, but for now it's outtie. If you have any questions please ask in the post. I will get back to you asap XOXOB
